WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

By this time of year so many college students have officially graduated from their respective schools and universities and are ready to take on the world ahead of them. With their recent graduation comes a whole new realm of possibilities: new job and internship opportunities, the possibility of starting a Master’s or Bachelors program at a different school or maybe just taking some time off to travel the world. College is no walk in the park, and there is no better way to celebrate this recent achievement than a graduation party!

This Fashonista is graduation party ready in this fun patterned romper and a pair of gold sandals that are easy to slide off, just in case the party games involve lots of moving. Rompers are my absolute favorite for the summertime because they are fun and flirty like most dresses, but still offer the comfort of shorts for any necessary running around. This patterned romper features lace detailing giving it more of a flirty feel. Her jewelry selection features some more structured pieces including the watch and bangles, while also offering some fun eclectic pieces such as the faux crystal necklace layered with the other small gold pieces.

These hot summer days that very often transition into cooler nights can be easily prepared for by adding a lightweight jacket. This Fashonista’s dark wash jean jacket is the perfect addition to her blue and white romper and looks great with all of her gold accessories. Whatever it is that you decide to wear to your next graduation event, make sure that you are comfortable, and always plan for a change in temperature.

One Simple Change: If you want to dress the outfit up a little bit more take off the sandals and put on a pair of cute wedges. You can also throw a fun clutch into your ensemble to keep all of your necessities in, while also adding a little bit of spunk to your outfit. Play with different patterns and mix-and-match materials to add that extra bit of flare.
