Well... this is weird.
After years of being ready to graduate, it's finally actually happening. I just keep thinking to myself, "This can't be real!" Last year, living in a house full of seniors I had convinced myself that I was graduating with them. Of course, that was not the case. But it is now my turn and I frankly couldn't be more excited!
I'm sure I'll miss somethings about Georgetown and college in general, but I truly feel ready for the next stage of life. Maybe I'll come back and read this post (and surely future posts and likely past posts) and think about how much has changed and how much I didn't know and how I should have relished my time on the Hilltop.
But the thing is that I've put in the time. Whether I like it or not, graduation is inevitable. (What will be the fate of "The College Prepster" once she's out of college?!?! No idea yet!)
The whole graduation ceremony is already beginning to stress me out... but not for nostalgic reasons. Mostly, the logistics of families, schedules, dinners, reservations, parties, friends.... ugh. I am looking forward to and not looking forward to picking out a dress for graduation. Not sure what I'm planning on wearing yet, but I'm sure that a bunch of you college seniors (and high school seniors) are in a similar boat.
Here are some of my preliminary top picks:
[Note: I'm partial to navy because it's one of Georgetown's colors!]
I love the neckline on this! I'm always hesitant to wear strapless dresses when I know a bunch of pictures will be taken. Not a fan of when the dress doesn't quite make the frame! I also like how the dress is longer.
I most definitely couldn't pull this one off unless I got a spray tan (ha...), but I think it's a darling shape. It has little postage stamps and postmarks all over it. And, hello, I'm dying to go to Paris.
How pretty is this dress? I love the bright turquoise blue... but since the print is on a white background it isn't so intense. I also like the shift shape without being dramatically "Lilly."
I love how simple this J. Crew dress is, but I would definitely wear a pretty coordinating belt. Or I'd throw on a super bold statement necklace, like this one.
This dress is more subdued, but I like it. A lot. It reminds me of the dress I wore to my high school graduation!
(It's totally okay for you to be jealous of my sock tan...)
This is Jessica Simpson! I know, I couldn't believe it either! If you have a later graduation date, the seersucker is perfect. I love the pink piping.
So I think this is basically the spring/summer version of my Anthropologie dress! I kind of want it... really bad!
I think I need to see what the fabric is like in person, but the little detailing around the waist is really sweet! I think the dress, in general, would flatter a lot of body types.
