OOTD: Graduation Style #1 - florals, golds and bling, oh my!

Friday, June 8, 2012

Thanks, mom for the beautiful bouquet!
Peonies are my favorite, and these pink ones are gorgeous
especially with the contrasting neon lime green mums. 
Hello there! For graduation, I picked out two outfits - one for the Department ceremony and another for Commencement. You might remember reading my shopping adventures for these perfect dresses a couple weeks ago - thought I'd share with you my first graduation outfit! Second outfit to post on Monday :)

I wanted to keep the outfit simple classy, but with a hint of "fun" - so I chose a few accessories and went for statement shoes? Haha If there ever was a thing... Played up the bling with my earrings (a birthday present from m'friend Lindzee!) and my favorite Michael Kors pave eternity ring, along with two rings that I wore everyday when I was in college - one from my sorority and a vintage crystal cocktail ring from my aunt. The necklace was a gift from my mother in high school - a vintage treasure that is one of my favorites, and my statement shoes were sky-high, hot pink and purple, color-blocked, peep-toed, patent wedges. loves

These pictures were taken right outside the Communication Department on my big day - so happy the sun came out just in time for a quick photo shoot. Hope you all are having a beautiful week! Graduation recap will be posted on Monday!! Can't wait to share with y'all my favorite graduation photos <3

Dress: J.Crew Ella dress in 'Garden Floral' - bold orange brushstroke floral print, silk; Shoes: Vince Camuto peep-toed wedges; Earrings: Kate Spade "Putting on The Ritz" studs; Rings: Alpha Delta Pi sorority and vintage crystal on my left hand, Michael Kors pave eternity on my right; Necklace: vintage hammered gold wreath from the late 70s; Purse: Louis Vuitton (pictured below, last photo Trench: Michael Kors)
