Cap and Gown


Dress: American Apparel | Sandals: Nordstrom BP | Sunnies: Ray-Ban 'Clubmasters' |
I can't believe I am a high school graduate! Saturday, June 14th was my graduation and it feels so surreal. Four years went by so quickly. Wearing my cap and gown was incredible and I had fun selecting a graduation dress from my wardrobe. I knew my chiffon dress from American Apparel was the perfect choice. It even matched my chords!
Later that night, my parents, my sister and I went out for a post-graduation dinner at a lovely little Italian place. I had the most delicious chicken parmesan I've ever tasted and the pasta was homemade perfection. I couldn't have imagined a better way to celebrate.
After dinner, we headed to the mall to do a bit of shopping. I picked up some goodies that I absolutely love. The Nordstrom we went to had a Topshop and I was thrilled when I discovered the Topshop makeup section. You could say I was in makeup heaven. After swatching multiple lipsticks to the point where the back of my hand looked like a painter's palette, I decided on a pink shade called "Pillow Talk." I also bought a MAC lipstick in "Snob." I guess I'm on a pink lipstick kick lately!
While in Nordstrom, I got a pair of white low-top Converse. something that had been on my wishlist for a long time. Everyone needs a good pair of Converse, right? They will go with everything and I can't wait to wear them.
At Urban Outfitters, I bought a simple black and white striped tee. I was debating whether or not I should buy it, but am so glad I did. It is the perfect summer basic that will look great with high waisted denim shorts and my new Converse.
I truly couldn't be happier with the way my graduation day turned out. From the beautiful ceremony, to the lovely dinner and shopping, it was all so nice and special. I had a wonderful time with my family and will never forget it. Now it is time for the next chapter of my life to begin.
