Fiance and I both received our Master's degree last December, however the campus wide graduation ceremony isn't until May. We weren't going to walk at first, but changed our mind last minute because our advisor insisted that we shouldn't miss out. He was right, it was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to walk across that stage again, and we had a lot of fun!
Here we were getting ready to walk across the stage! Yes, we were students in the same department :) It was freezing cold Sunday morning and I was so glad I didn't wear a dress like I had originally planned to.
Look at all these people! It was a shame that my parents couldn't make it this time due to the short notice, but fiance's dad came celebrated with us and took tons of pictures for us :)
On the shopping front from this past weekend, I met up with my college roommate and we went to the mall together.
I've been looking for these pump like flats and these were perfect, I especially love the tiny bow detail at the front. I also picked up a pair of silver flats. I've totally been in a flats mood lately. One question, do you ladies wear your flats with socks (those no show socks) or barefoot? I find that I sweat a lot more if I don't wear socks, but it feels weird to wear socks with flats...dilemma...
I also bought this purple skirt from Khol's. It's made with thin cottony material that feels extra soft and light.
Interesting cotton swabs that I picked up: the one on the left are individually packed, and has a regular cotton Q-tip on one end, and a plastic scoop thing on the other for cleaning ears. The one in the middle is also individually wrapped, and one end contains olive oil! I thought this would be perfect to toss in the purse, and to clean away any running eyeliners or makeup smudges in the middle of the day.
