big day on campus.

Probably the biggest one of my life thus far. I'm chatting about graduating, duh. In a word - surreal, for real.

Spazzed about what to wear for the last month. After profusely refusing to go all academic (boring), I was all aboard that bandwagon, for one day only. In the end, I opted for a classic shirt and skirt ensemble. Literally thrown together, by my sister, in a half an hour skitz round Newcastle, the day before. Story of my life.

So here it is, in all its (too much) photographic glory.
Shirt & shoes: NEXT, Skirt & bag: TOPSHOP, Earrings: UO

What happens now? Who knows. Time will tell. The plan is London to write for anyone who'll have me. Let's see what happens ehy ehy.

A few of you have commented saying you're experiencing this very thing over the next couple weeks, some advice; follow the crowd (style wise) and bloody enjoy it, its over too quickly.

  1. Congratulations!
    I really like your shoes - did you brave the stage in them? A lot of people I've talked to have advised against it for obvious slippy reasons. I really like the collared shirt rather than a lower-necked blouse.
    I'm so jealous of everyone graduating this year!

  3. I keep seeing graduation posts and feel a bit whydidimissmine? Sigh, though it was in the heart of Stoke so it couldn't have been that glamourous!

    Congrats on your graduation though!

  15. I really like the collar of your shirt - and I've been looking for a black skirt like that for ages! Forever the only black skirts seemed to be bodycon - great for a night out but a bit too revealing for my taste at formal occasions!

  16. Congraaats, girl! Such an achievement! I'm absolutely loving your graduation outfit - so fresh and chic, an incredibly unique and flattering choice. Love it!

    That blouse is amazing - I've been looking for a white blouse like that for quite a while!

    Thanks for the comment on my site!
