Last week I received an email from my University informing me that I have satisfied all the requirements for my degree, and therefore have the option to attend my graduation ceremony in a few weeks (October 30th to be exact). Of course I was aware of this (that I have successfully completed all courses), but it was not until I read that email that it really hit me. All three years of my university life have really come to an end.
JUST. LIKE. THAT.
I remember my first day like it was yesterday. Moving in on hall, getting used to not seeing my parents for days, having to cook for myself, and meeting some of the most wonderful people on earth. And, though graduation day will be a bittersweet moment, I’m looking forward to ‘adult life’ (I’m lying really). You know, working, owning a house, and buying a car. Something like that.
I’ve graduated before in uniform (no stress with picking out a dress), but my very first high school graduation required me to wear a white dress (see picture above), and because of that, I know how stressful it can be figuring out what to wear and what is appropriate without compromising style. So, to make things easier for you, I’ll be sharing a few tips on how you can look your best, but still be graduation ready. My reason for posting this early is so that you have sufficient time to really get yourselves together. Nothing beats being prepared.
I hope this helps, and feel free to email me with any questions you may have, whether it be related to college, graduation, or just general questions.
It’s not a surprise that your graduation may be followed by dinner or an outing with family and friends. You’ll want to ensure that your dress can double up for this occasion as well.
