This week saw me graduate from Southampton Solent University with a BA(Hons) degree in Photography. It’s strange to think that three years has passed already! For my outfit I didn't want anything too extravagant. Even though I had the choice to splurge, I went for budget options. This was half due to not wanting to spend loads of money but also that nowhere had anything I liked that was appropriate! I already had an idea of what i wanted to get before hand so ended up piecing together things bit by bit. The best thing about this outfit is that I can easily wear it at work (I start teaching at a college in Manchester on Wednesday). I went for a short sleeved blouse with lace detailing which I tucked into a patterned skater skirt, topped with a casual blazer style jacket. Brogues seemed like the safest option so I didn't fall flat on my face while going on stage and mickey mouse tights, need I say more? My boyfriend bought me the Evenstar necklace for my birthday and I simply couldn't receive my degree without a bit of geekery, could I?

Luckily I didn't fall on my face and am now officially a photography graduate. Afterwards me and my parents went for a lovely Italian before heading to meet some of my friends to say a final goodbye to Southampton. Unexpectedly I ended up staying out way later than planned, visiting my old haunt “The Hobbit Pub” (oh how I'm going to miss that place). Dad also treated me to a soft toy of Olaf (from new Disney movie Frozen) the next day while I got myself a Kindle Fire HD, graduation was just an excuse for that one really haha.

Overall it was a nice day and officially marks the start of my adult life. I’m currently pursuing a post-graduate teaching degree with plans to teach photography and art history as a source of income while I work on my own practice.
