Class of 2013: Graduation Dresses

Graduation is looming right around the corner for both of us.

As you can tell from our fashion posts, we both have different styles. We thought it would be fun to show you guys what type of graduation dresses we are thinking of wearing for the big event.


Graduation, target, teal dress, sheer dress, brooks brothers, hoops, gold hoop earrings, suede pumps, grey pumps, revlon, revlon colorburst, bcbg
Dress: Target | Earrings: Brooks Brothers | Shoes: BCBGeneration
Lip: Revlon Colorburst | Nails: Henry Bendel
Graduation dress, liz claiborne, jc penny, enzo angiolini tanen, blue suede, blue suede peeptoe, loreal paris, blue nails, miss candy, gold ring, gold bow ring, bow ring
Dress: Liz Claiborne | Shoes: Enzo Angiolini Tanen
Ring: Charlotte Russe | Nails: L’OrĂ©al Paris Miss Candy

For my first look I went with a simple turquoise graduation dress made out  light sheer material. The grey suede pumps accentuate the color of dress. The gold accessories add a new dimension to the look. To keep the look light and summery I chose a Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya.

For my second look I chose a bright floral patterned dress. Since the dress is so busy I went with a solid colored peep toe pumps and royal blue nail polish. To keep the look young and fresh I added a cute little bow ring. 

This graduation dress has pockets which is also a plus! I won't have to carry a purse underneath my graduation robe. 


S. Graduation, modcloth, green dress, retro dress, retro green dress, tea party dress, tea dress, mad men dress, sweatheart neckline, pink blush heels, patent leather heels, pink heels, nude sunglasses, charlotte russe, stella mccartney
Dress: Modcloth | Shoes: Simply Soles, LB2 | Phone case: Charlotte Russe
Earrings: Forever New | Bracelet: Call It Spring | Nails: L'Oreal
Sunglasses: Stella McCartney

For my first look, I chose this green retro style dress. I love the sweetheart neckline, and for someone with a larger bust it really helps create a flattering look. 

Because this dress is really feminine, I decided to accentuate it with bow details (earrings and pink heels). Of course, I wasn't going to be at graduation without my phone, so I chose this lovely coral phone cover to pair with the bracelets which also bring some color to this outfit.

Floral Graduation.
Dress: BooHoo | Shoes: Modcloth | Necklace: AlleyDrew
Nails: Dior | Perfume: Marc Jacobs

The second look I chose is a very similar style, but it is much more fun and flirty. The accessories and the shoes are bright. This outfit is all about summer and floral.

I also incorporated wedges into this outfit, because standing in line and being on your feet all day during graduation is something to be expected, and you want to be as comfortable as possible.
