Even though I graduated this past December and already have a diploma in hand, I’m excited to participate with my fellow classmates in our commencement ceremony in just under a month! With it coming up so soon, I’m of course stressing about what to wear… under the gown, that is (silly that I worry about something few will even see? Yes. Care? No.). I’ve finally found a dress I love, surprisingly from American Apparel— a store I tend to stay away from as much more of a prep than a hipster. But I love its vintage look and am so excited it’s purple to match one of my school’s colors (our purple and gold school wears all black graduation caps and gowns, next!).
As far as accessories go, it pains me that I won’t get to wear a bow or flower in my hair thanks to a certain traditional hat. But at least I’ll be prep with my pearls Here’s what I’m thinking:
I also love the look because it reminds me of Mila Kunis’s 2011 Oscars dress, one of my favorites from that red carpet. In case you’ve been living under a rock:
Oh please let lavender be a big color this summer!
Post script: Emerson girls, don’t get any ideas!
