Graduation Time!

It's that time of year again when many people celebrate their academic success and attend their graduation! I graduated 2 years ago from college and I was super excited about my ceremony, as well as spending time with my friends and family after. Plus, you have summer to look forward to!  

Here are some outfits that I came up with to wear underneath your gown. I know that during the ceremony, you'll be zipping up your gown, but you always have pictures afterwards and dinner/parties. Enjoy!

Look 1
Dress-Forever 21. Shoes-Payless. 
Most of the time, graduation gowns are dark blue or black, so you could wear a bright color to add some fun to your outfit! I chose this teal dress to wear underneath and it would be great to wear to dinner or something afterwards. I love this color and the nude mesh top! 

Look 2
Top-Fashion City. Skirt-Macys. Shoes-Target. Necklace-Charlotte Russe. 
If you want more of a business or sophisticated look, here's a way to work with that. I chose this bright yellow top for a fun pop of color and paired it with a pencil skirt. It's sophisticated and put together. Throw on a necklace to complete the look. 

 Look 3
Dress-Forever21. Necklace-Forever21. Shoes-Payless. Bracelets-H&M
And for those that want a Springy feminine look, throw on a summer dress and strappy heels. I chose this ruffled blue polka dot dress and some fun heels for this look. Have fun with your accessories with bracelets and a necklace. 

I hope you are all proud of yourself for your accomplishments in school! So now you can spread your wings and take the next step in life!! Congrats!
