First Class | My Graduation Day!

Graduation 1 Portsmouth Guildhall
This past Wednesday, my family and I woke up bright and early, got  all suited and booted, before making the drive down to Portsmouth for my big Graduation day!

The sun was out in full force, which made for some great shots outside Portsmouth Guildhall, where the main ceremony was held. And as my ceremony was in the morning, we just managed to avoid the absolute scorching heat towards midday too!

Rather amusingly this will be my first proper personal style post for I think about 2 years? Under the gown I’m wearing my gorgeous cream dress I bought whilst in Artists and Fleas in Chelsea Market in New York. My court shoes were from Topshop and the necklace I snagged in the Dorothy Perkins sale last week. The clutch is a loan from my mum and the drop ivory earrings was a graduation present from my Uncle.

The ceremony was great – and I didn’t fall off the stage! – and it was lovely to see all of my course mates all in one place one last time.

After cooling off at home we headed out for a meal at the Chilworth Arms ordering a healthy dose of Pims and toffee ice cream for dessert!

I’ve definitely had a more unusual experience at University than others I know of – something which I’m keen to write about at some point when I get the chance to actually form literate words – but it was so rewarding to finally get to this point after 4 years of seriously tough work.

Oh and did I mention I somehow managed to get a first class honours out of all that work? – please don’t ask me how I did it, I question the sanity of the examiners marking my work.
