My Graduate ♥

Sunday, 11 September 2011

[WARNING! Photo heavy]
If you read my last post, you'll know that this week was Sams graduation day, and so I just wanted to share some photos with you from the day- proud much!!!

I had a lovely day, and even though the ceremony was slightly boring (I didn't yawn too much) Sam enjoyed his day & has now finished his life at University. How fast the 3 years have gone! I feel like it's an ending for me too, as I too have made friends from his house mates to his course mates & laughed and drank with them too. It is also a new start for me & Sam though, and it excites me to think what the future holds

Firstly my outfit
Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: Primark
Flower headband: Matalan
'XO' necklace: Designs by FaraM*

I didn't want to start looking for a dress too early, because I knew I'd just then go & find a better and prettier one. However, when I saw this dress is the DP's sale, with buy one get one free, I couldn't help my self. It's not usually a dress I'd go for, it's far too structured & a bit too booby, but when I tried it on I just loved it. I felt a bit fatty around the middle, and had to keep pulling it down so it didn't bundle there, but I think it's a good purchase & hopefully I will get to wear it again.
The head band, I could just wear every single day! Oh Matalan, you have done well here. After leaving it behind on my first trip, I just had to go & get it. I was worried how it would sit, but I just adore it, and I think it looks fab- if I do say so myself!
My necklace is is thanks to the lovely Farah at Happy Toasts, she has started a new jewelery line and now has a section on her blog to show case her lovely items. I'm not usually one for dainty & 'pretty' jewelery, but I urge you to take a look at her pieces. They're slightly different, and eye catching but are still very subtle. When I saw the 'XO' necklace, I knew I had to have it. It's gorgeous, and I just love love love it. 


Photos from the day



Hope you've enjoyed the little looksie into Sams graduation day, link me to your graduation posts- I love seeing all the hats & robes
Good luck to any one starting Uni this month, how exciting!!!!

I hope you all have had lovely weekends, and enjoy your week
 
I know it's 9/11 and I don't want to think that this post is all me me me, as I am most certainly thinking about the tragic happenings of that day. It sends shivers down my spine, my thoughts are with every one involved in any way ♥
Let us never forget, and how it's changed our world, I don't think we ever would
