* Class of 2014 *

Hello lovelies! 


If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I was absolutely delighted, and completely over the moon to find out I'll be receiving a First Class Honours degree! I can't even begin to describe how happy/ relieved/ emotional I was when I found out my classification. It was like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders and everything was now ok in the world. Ok, tad extreme but it definitely felt amazing!!

So, it's about time I got ready! My uni has a strict black/white dress code, which leaves little to the imagination. I've put together a few black and white themed outfits to give you all inspiration, as I know many will be graduating around this time. Congratulations to everyone who has graduated this year, what an achievement! 


Graduation 2014



For those in favour of white, a classic, lace dress adds a sweet and summery touch to a rather boring afternoon. I advise you wear comfortable, yet stylish block heel shoes, which will allow you to walk easily on stage when receiving your degree - you don't want to be that person who falls! Add a smart, tailored blazer to take the outfit from day to night. Remember to add a statement necklace and glitter nails, to make sure you really stand out!


Graduation 2014



For those in favour of black, an elegant and classic LBD is always perfect. Accessorise with delicate, understated jewellery which will still give you a timeless look. Instead of a blazer, why not pair with a boucle jacket for your afternoon lunch with the family, adding a slight casual element. Simple, on trend heeled sandals will be the perfect finishing touch. 


Graduation 2014



For those in favour of skirts and trousers, I advise you be practical with comfortable clothing, a sturdy bag and flat shoes. Although it sounds dull, it doesn't have to be. Team a sweet lace top with a flattering high-waisted pencil skirt or tapered trousers. Accessorise with fun ballet pumps, classic jewellery and stylish sunglasses for a sunny day. This formal look can easily be transferable to dinner in the evening; just add a statement necklace, or a pair of high heels.


More soon, 

Helen

  44. Hi Helen! Congrats on your graduation, especially with your First Class Honors Degree:) Do you have specific plans for your next step in life? Whatever they are, I wish the best of luck to you. I recently just graduated from high school this year and now I'm off to college. I love the outfits you picked out for graduation...The first two are my favorites. The dress I wore to graduation was one I made but unfortunately, no one could see it with the robe:( But I would definitely wear these outfits you picked out any day!
