Alas I graduate... this November (arrhythmia) Blimey, that means I am now a Biomedical Scientist, a reality which is pretty damn crazy. The last three years of my life have been stalked by Uni which has been an uh-mazing experience and it does pain me to say that Uni is now officially over :’( ...and it has rendered me penniless (j/k). But hey ho, I can now look forward to moving ahead on the career ladder and delve into future studying undertakings (postgrad/masters, PhD, a second degree and all that malarkey). However, ontop of it all I get the pleasure of planning my graduation outfit, shoes, jewellery, accessories, makeup and all the other jazz to doll me up for the much awaited occasion.
Obviously, the above doesn’t do my bank account any favours, oops! Though having said that, for the last four months I have saved every pound, every silver and every copper to fund for my special outfit and have raped every website, every shop and every store in the whole bloody process. So, here is the thing, I know I cannot walk into the Graduation hall dressed in all things Dior from head to toe as much as I would blooming like too, but I don’t think that my unrealistic dream has stopped me from finding what I believe to be good finds amongst alot of the rubble. Considering I am graduating in November i.e. when Autumn will be in full swing, I think I have sussed out my Graduation outfit quite well in my head and have chosen clothing items reasonably smart/stylish/sophisticated whilst not negotiating on their, if any, ‘casual’ and ‘winter-friendly’ qualities. Casual but sophisticated is definitely the way :)
I have decided against choosing the now more conventional Graduation trio: dress, tights and heels and instead have opted for a simple, plain, no gimmick sheer/chiffon shirt/blouse and skinny trousers/chinos combo, paired with nude mid-length heels. The mids will fingers crossed prevent me from having an embarrassing moment on the catwalk of prestige!
These are the clothing items currently on my ‘Graduation outfit shopping list’, waiting to be tried on, tested, accepted or rejected... tra la la.
