Asos Lace Shift Dress

I was looking through photos and realized I never posted what I wore to my graduation. I will warn you that it is not enlightening or anything. I ended up wearing two different dresses - this one to an award ceremony where we received our honors cords (the green cord below) and another dress to the actual graduation ceremony which got literally 0 pictures taken of it! It is the phantom dress. Sometimes I think it's to my benefit when no pictures are taken of me in a dress, because then I have free reign to wear it again and no one will remember. I ended up wearing this dress with simple gold and rose gold accessories, and neutral shoes to make my legs look longer. The white cardigan was worn indoors but it was too hot walking around campus to keep it on.

University of Miami's campus is so beautiful, but I really took it for granted for the past 3 years. Walking around the campus with my family was a great way to appreciate the beautiful nature and landscaping of the whole campus. The tree behind me here I think is called a Banyan tree - it is actually one of the smaller ones on campus. The campus is actually an arboretum (tree museum/conservatory/botanical garden-ish) which is pretty cool.
And now, a gigantic picture of my face! Underneath the black robes I am donning a beautiful dress of which there are no pictures to document its wearing. 
When a tree falls in a forest and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? When a dress is worn and there are no photos taken, did you really wear it? 


  1. That dress looks beautiful on you! I really love the colour and the lace is beautiful! Perfect for your graduation!


  2. I love the colour of your dress! What are the medals for?

    Congrats on graduation by the way! :D
