Despite some breezy winds, it was unseasonably warm last weekend in New England, and that called for a walk around Boston’s waterfront area. As much of a tease as it was, it was definitely a welcome break from the blistery teen temperatures, and certainly put me in the spring mindset!

I wore this dress exactly one year ago on my graduation day. It’s amazing to think about how much has changed over the past year. And how much is exactly the same. Time + life are funny little things, ya know?
Our Bruins are going for all or nothing tonight in the Stanley Cup Finals!
On my way to a bar for Game 4, I saw some girls going for the “stylish” sports fan look, complete with yellow halter tops, black pencil skirts, and comfy nine-inchers. I can appreciate the attempt, but a little much if you ask me! Bars get crowded and fans get crazy at times like this, so I say go for cute, but more so go for comfort!

What are you wearing to watch the game?
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! :)
