I graduated yesterday! I am now the proud owner of a first class LLB hons in law, who would have thought it?! Luckily the rain held off till the afternoon so we were able to get some pictures outside, which is great considering I look horrendous in the professional one that we had taken (which you can guarantee will be the one that my parents give to everyone).
I had an absolute nightmare trying to decide what to wear to graduation. I even embarked on a last minute online shopping spree at ASOS but I felt that what I ordered still wasn't appropriate! In the end I went for a black, very lightly pinstriped dress that I already had from New Look. You can't really see from the photos but it has cute shoulder ruffles and a little bow brooch on it. Its one of those dresses that fits me really well and I thought black is probably the best route.
However, wearing the dress makes wearing the gown a nightmare! They weren't kidding when they suggested that you wear a top button shirt, as this is what actually holds the hood down at the front. Because I didn't have a button I was essentially being slowly strangled all day.
My tip if you have a graduation coming up is remember to bring some pins!
