Graduation Dresses

Although I am not graduating this year, it is so hard to believe that graduation is only a few short weeks away! I think it is so hard for me to wrap my head around because it will mean I have officially been out of college for a year, which is so beyond crazy to me. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was walking across that stage officially becoming a Springfield College alumni, saying goodbye to that part of my life, and getting ready to begin the next phase. Truthfuly, it feels like it was just yesterday that I was moving into my dorm room as a freshman and yet almost five years have gone by. Where does the time go!? 

As I said in this post, I urge soon to be graduates to make the most of the last few weeks!! I can't even begin to describe how great my last few weeks of college were leading up to graduation. I was lucky to go to a school that not only put on a lot of senior events but that also had a senior week leading up to graduation. Although those left me with such wonderful memories, some of my fondest were just the times I spent doing absoultely nothing with friends. It is still those moments that I miss so very much. To all those graduating seniors, go out there and have the time of your life. It is in those moments that you will make special memories that you will always carry with you.

If you are anything like me, then you know that one of the few pluses that came along with graduating is shopping for a graduation dress! For as long as I can remember, I have associated graduation with white dresses. I wore a white dress when I graduated from high school, and of course I did the same last year when I graduated from college. Chances are good that I will wear one when I graduate from nursing school as well! There is just something I have always loved about the look of a white dress. It is such a classic style that you can wear time and time again, not just when you graduate. Not only that, but for the most part you shouldn't have to worry about your dress clashing with you cap and gown! 

I absoultely loved the dress I wore last year for graduation. It was such a winner. Between the shift silhouette and the eyelet fabric it really was perfection. I just dug it out of my closest, and it reminded me once more how much I love it. It will definitely be making some more appearances this summer! It is Banana Republic, and since it is from last season it is sadly no longer available. Check it out above for some inspiration!  

I have linked a bunch of beautiful white dresses from this season below! Happy shopping, and although a bit premature - happy graduation!! Give yourself a pat on the back and don't forget to celebrate a truly wonderful accomplishment!

And here is the final look, cap & gown included!
