This blue and white floral dress (with hummingbirds!!!) would be an absolutely perfect graduation dress. Whether you’re an almost-graduate or will merely be cheering on your favorite graduate from the stands, this dress is breezy, comfy, and rather perfect for a long summer day.
My biggest regret from my own graduation (how has it already been 4 years?!?!?) is that I didn’t get more into it. I didn’t get all gussied up. I didn’t take all of the typical pictures at all of the idyllic spots around campus… I was just so ready to be done and out of there. I’m so thankful that my parents, both my actual little sister and one of my “little sisters” from the sorority, and all four of my grandparents were all able to attend my graduation, but I only have a handful of pictures from that day and only a few of them are with my friends – many of whom I haven’t been able to see since our days in “gorges” Ithaca.
I look like an unwashed vagrant in a cap and gown in all of my photos. No fun accessories or personal details. No fabulous graduation dress. Just me, my boring cap, my voluminous gown, and a water bottle (not kidding: I’m holding a water bottle in every single photo from my graduation).
What I’m Wearing:
Dress: Nicole Miller via Rent the Runway / Purse: Rebecca Minkoff / Shoes: J.Crew Factory
Earrings: gift (similar) / Bracelet: Kate Spade, old (similar, similar) / Signet Ring: BaubleBar
My sister will be graduating next month from the University of Texas and I’m already searching for the perfect graduation dress to wear to her graduation. Since apparently I failed on my first go around. I’m thinking something burnt orange (duh!), so please please please let me know if you come across a cute lil frock in Texas’s favorite color.
Now to take a total detour: there has been an ongoing debate in my office. Well, two actually. One being whether I am, in fact, a blonde, a redhead, or a brunette, and the other to try to determine my eye color. And no, they’re not trying to guess my natural hair color (lord if I even know at this point), they just can’t agree what to call my current hair color. Apparently my coworkers are quite bored. Lately, everybody has been casting their votes… so they suggested I poll y’all. What do you think?
