My Graduation - The University of Nottingham 201319.7.13
Cream Dress with Black Collar and Lace Detail | A Wear via ASOS
Graduation Shizz | A whole new world of polyester
I am now, somewhat sadly (bye-bye student discount)... yet kinda happily (hellooo no more exams or essays), a graduate of the University of Nottingham. I must say, us summer 2013 graduates have been mighty lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you feel about wearing layers of black clothing in the heat) with this weather. As Nottingham is quite a leafy campus it was good to have the sun out - it reduced the 'oh-snap-my-heel-is-lodged-in-the-grass' situation at least.
I went with this A Wear dress despite having bought a dress way back in March for graduation. I'd made the mistake of buying quite a thick jersey dress, which I'm pretty sure would have made me sweat 10x more profusely (mm.. delightful, but I swear these gowns are torture in such weather!). So picking out this pricier but airier dress a week ago from ASOS was a very, very good decision!
The bottom image was a request by my Mum for me to do a 'meercat pose'. I'm not sure I achieved that, but I couldn't leave this gem out.
A lot of you lot graduated this week according to my Twitter / Instagram, so congratulations everyone! If yours is yet to come, I hope you enjoy the day, despite the ruddy polyester!
