“Your education is a dress rehearsal for a life that is yours to lead.” —Nora Ephron
,lIt is that time of the year when graduations are happening! It's so exciting to see young, successful, driven people working their hardest to reach their potential. I remember four years ago graduating from college, thinking the sky is the limit. Being a teacher, I got to see all my students graduate and it was such a beautiful experience.
I got to watch parents, grandparents, and all the in-between come together to celebrate the success of their child. There's something beautiful about watching a proud parent bask in their child's hard work and motivation.
One of my favorite things about graduation is figuring out what you will wear. I always find bright, summery colors exhilarating, but being in the teaching role, I wanted to be colorful but professional at the same time.
I decided to go with one of my favorite designers, Lilly Pulitzer. She's got some great summer dresses that are perfect for graduation. I decided to go with the Mila shift dress, color seasalt blue on parade! The dress was under 200 dollars as well! I wear a size 0 and one thing I love about Lilly Pultizer is her designs fit shorter statures, making me look a tad bit taller than normal, especially in the torso.
Not only was this dress super fun, with it's bright greens, pinks, and blues but it was comfortable too! Now, if you're looking for some dresses, on a budget, I've listed three other, under 100 dollar options to wear for graduation that will make you look absolutely fabulous!
1st: here is a link to my LILLY PULITZER DRESS!:
1ST option: I love this lace trimmed dress. This is super elegant and awesome for graduation. It can be customized to either be super formal, or laid back and casual, depending on the look you're going for! Also, it's under 70.00!
