I've been wanting to share this exciting piece of news for a long time! Kate Spade asked me to style a dress at my graduation for their blog. Obviously, I jumped at the opportunity! It was so much fun picking out which dress I wanted to wear and which accessories to match.
The post on Kate Spade's blog went live last week and it was such a thrill! I loved hearing your tweets and seeing your comments on the post, Instagram, and Facebook... it means so much to me!!!!!! I was so excited to share my special day with everyone. And a huge thank you to the Kate Spade team for asking me to be a part of such a fun series on the blog.
Read the rest of my interview here.
So a bit of a confession, I took most of the pictures for the blog before my actual graduation. If you've been here for more than a month, you've probably already figured out that I'm quite the planner. I'd much rather be early than late... I like lists... and I hate feeling stressed!
I wanted to make sure that my pictures for the post (and pictures to keep forever) looked amazing. Luckily, there are tons of great photographers in the D.C. area. Naturally, I didn't just find a great photographer... I found the BEST photographer!!!!
Carissa Gallo is ridiculously talented. I found her because she takes gorgeous pictures of Taza and her family (aka one of my favorite "Mom Blogs"). I contacted her and was SO excited for her to photograph me in the KSNY dress. I thought the pictures came out beyond amazing.
As awkward as it was posing for graduation pictures on campus two weeks before actual graduation, it turned out to be great! On the day of actual graduation, all the pretty parts of campus were swarming with people and covered in tents.
These are my favorite shots! Eep! So fun!
THANK YOU Kate Spade and Carissa Gallo for making my graduation that much more memorable.
