    er...how formal can you be at 3pm?
    I really don't want to come underdressed, but don't want to overdo it either.
    Does anyone have photos of what they wore?

    I don't have any pictures (on the computer) of what I wore to Allen's commissioning at OCS. I wore a dressy black tank dress with heels, and a sweater tied around my shoulders. It's a formal ceremony, but not formal wear...more like church attire but a little dressier. Does that make sense?

    Something you'd wear to high tea, like a tea length dress with heels and a cardi.
