Outfit of the Day: Chilly Transition AND Advice Needed! HELP PLEASE!

Today was oddly cold in the morning so I had jeans on actually and had to wear closed-toe shoes for my Monday anatomy lab. After my lab final, I went back to my room to change and then I headed over to work. I finished the day with an exit-type interview since the year is wrapping up as well as renewing my contract for next year (Woo hoo! They're taking me back!!) so I was excited about that. I got to tell the full time staff members what I was thinking about the organization and I got to hear what they had to say about me. This was what I wore for today's endeavors:



I was very comfortable for the outing and the day. Plus I wanted to look decent for my "interview". By no means did we have to dress up, but I certainly didn't want to be in a t-shirt or anything like that. I started out wearing a FAB madras belt, but changed because it kept untucking my shirt--oh no!

I do however have a banquet coming up on Wednesday and I need some help deciding what to wear. I have a few options for the night. It is definitely dressy and nicer than a typical jersey/cotton/knit dress. I think a cotton Lilly would be nice, but I have a feeling it is a little bit dressier even still. Here are a few options for what I'm thinking:

This pink dress from my Baccalaureate ceremony. I have great silver wedges to go with it too! It's from J. Crew and all the little jacquard dots are adorable and shiny. I wore this dress during rush and got so many compliments on it! It is on the dressier side, but I LOVE this dress!

I couldn't find a better photo of this dress, but this is my other option. I'd have to wear a cardigan or something with it until we sat down for dinner. This is a Lilly that I like too and it is pretty dressy. I'd wear this with gold Jacks and some gold jewelry to dress it up a little more.

I also have a few black dresses also, which have been stored in my closet since football season (garnet and black gameday anyone?!) and I have those as options, but I'd rather be summery for the banquet. Please tell me what you think about the dresses and which one I should wear!! Thank you!!

Love your outfit of the day! I'm impressed with your polyvore - it drives me nuts to search everything. I say wear the one from baccalaureate. Have a good week and congrats on being rehired for the admissions office!
