AKM Styled: Graduation Day!

Thursday, May 26, 2016


I've (kinda) graduated!  I mentioned in my last Weekend Lookbook that on Friday, May 13th I graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Hospitality Management with an emphasis in Convention and Event Management.  I still have one more semester online to take this summer but otherwise I'm done!


I thought I'd share a few photos that we took before the ceremony of me in the graduation getup.  Since the ceremony was at 7:30 in the evening I thought it would be best to take the photos before hand.  Needless to say, about 15 minutes into trying to take a photo it started raining.  Also, my head is about the worst shape for this cap so I had to pin it to my noggin and it even kept trying to slip off after that.

The dress is from Darling London, aka one of my favorite brands, and I purchased it back in January.  I haven't had the chance to wear though since it was meant for my Mum's wedding in Late June but she said I could slip it on a month early to wear for this.  I ended up borrowing the cap and gown from my sister-in-law who just graduated from the same University in December but she is much taller than me.  So the gown isn't quite the proper size and I had to use seamstress tape to bring up the bottom of the gown to make it look semi-normal on me.  But it was better than purchasing one for sure!
