The Graduate...

It's funny to think that this month it is 2 years since I got my degree. I studied with the Open University for 6 years and eventually the hard work paid off and I passed with a 2:1, I got a BSc (hons) in Social Science with Politics. I loved doing my degree even though it was super tough and took up all my spare time, because I worked full time through 5 of the 6 years I did it, and for 2 of them I managed a shop. I sometimes wonder how I did it!
I never got around to sorting out a Graduation Ceremony though, which I sort of regret now as I feel it would have been a nice way to close all the hard years of study. Nonetheless, the Boy is graduating next weekend and I spent rather a long time (probably too long!) deciding what I'd wear to the ceremony.
I know they're quite smart affairs, so I thought it would be nice to wear a dress of some kind. I just so happened to find that knife-pleated cross fronted vintage one in the charity shop the other week, and so I have done an outfit based on how I thought I could style it for the graduation. Of course my ASOS WHITE coat had to feature-the irony of the £1 dress paired with the £290 (!) coat is not lost on me.
Coat: ASOS WHITE, Dress: Vintage, Shoes: Staccato, Belt: Vintage

These shoes have been worn so much since I bought them-they really do go with everything.

I think the same will be true of this jacket-I can see myself wearing it forever. I got a bit hot in it yesterday in Birmingham but it was perfect for the train home, lovely and warm.

Tee hee! Some of my pictures are just so incredibly cheesy!!

I love everything about this dress-the fit, the print and the length. It was a fab find!
