Graduation is a solemn ceremony, despite the instistance of air horns and wolf whistles, and the dress code is reflective of that. I remember at my own high school graduation spending the morning scrambling all over town looking for a pair of black dress shoes. How I got all the way to my senior year of high school without owning a pair boggles my mind now, but then I wasn't the fashionista I am now, so I will excuse it. For many students this is the most dressed up they've ever been, with the exception of prom, and it's often the first time they've ever worn "adult" clothes.
Even though we are all wearing big, shapeless, musty, and possibly unclean graduation robes, we are still expected to dress nicely. So I knew all the way back in April that I'd be depending on Kiyonna to have me looking right, and, as always, they did not disappoint. I paired my trusty favorite, the Paige Pencil Skirt, with their new Smitten Lace Top. As usual the clothing does not disappoint

So tonight I will be in my finery welcoming the class of 2012 into the real world. It's not always easy, it's not always pretty, but it should be always classy.
