Since my roommate and many of my friends will be graduating in about three weeks, I have had graduation on the mind a lot lately. Graduation is very bittersweet this year. Since I am not graduating until December I am going to be sad to see so many of my friends pack-up and leave Gainesville without me. I know most of them are ready for the next phase of their lives, but I will be sad without them next semester.
I posted a few weeks ago about a few black and white graduation dresses, but since we can wear pretty much whatever we want for college graduation... I though I'd post some more options, this time in color. Black and white dresses are so classic, but color is a lot more fun and personally, I think I will wear a colorful dress more often than a black or white one.
J.Crew has a wide selection of solid dresses in every color imaginable. They are a great source for classic dresses that you will get a lot of wear out of. I really love this blue circle eyelet dress... it is perfect since one of my school colors is blue. Plus, it's so classic and beautiful that I know I would want to wear it all the time! I also love the blue Teddie dress... it would be so perfect for me since I am graduating in December and it might (read: wishful thinking) be cool on graduation day.
Anthropologie is also a great source for graduation dresses. They are a little more fun and bright than most of the ones from J.Crew, but it just depends what kind of look you're going for. I know I would get so much wear of any of these Anthropologie dresses. If you choose to go with a solid color dress, like the ones above, you can always pair it with a statement necklace... Swell Caroline has some great jewelry options.
Are you graduating this semester? Where have you found your grad dress?
