A College Graduate

I'm writing today from Nashville, Tennessee. My new home. On Saturday Tyler and I both graduated from college! It was such a weird-bitter-sweet-freeing thing. I will be getting married in a little over a month and starting another chapter of life here searching for jobs (Tyler already has one) and nesting in our new apartment. Looking back 4 1/2 years ago this time never seemed like it would come, and here it is all ready for us.


This is what I wore on graduation. With the lovely addition of a pearl necklace and earrings my parents gifted me.


dress vintage/hip zipper
fully fashioned stockings vintage/hip zipper
shoes thrifted
pearls gift

Sadly, Tyler and I are sick right now so we we won't be running around enjoying our new found college graduated freedom quite yet. Just lounging around sniffling. But, here's to graduating!

xo,
 Em

Congratulations on your accomplishment, and I hope that your wedding day goes perfectly just as you have been planning it.
