Girly Grad

June is finally here and as schools prepare to close up for the summer, students prepare to enjoy a few months free of exams and homework. For others, the month of June means that it's time to graduate and explore new possibilities. While graduates are forced into the unknown of the real world, they don't have to be in the dark when it comes to their outfits for the ceremony! I just purchased my outfit for my graduation and thought I'd provide my fellow graduates with some stylish ensemble inspiration and options! Whether you decide on a bright color or a classic neutral, the key to a great graduation outfit is comfort! Remember, you'll be spending a great deal of time sitting down so you might as well be comfy! As for shoes? Heels and wedges can polish off any look from pretty dresses to sleek slacks. Being the nervous klutz that I am, I'll probably leave my wedges at home and bring my flats instead.

For those finishing off another year of school, enjoy the summer months and for those who are graduating, congratulations and best of luck in your future endeavors!
