Small Girl, Big Ideas

The Graduate

Jason graduated! I for sure thought I would end up having to miss his final presentation, but the timing ended up being fine and I got to be there to see his team show off the game they have been working on for the past five months (available here if you are curious). Despite the chilly weather and rain, we still got to go out for a delicious meal and drinks with a friend and celebrate a bit.


This is another dress picked from a Skype date with Jason awhile ago, and I really love how classic the style is. I didn't actually plan to wear a jacket with it, but I am fortunate the one jacket I brought went this well.



jacket :: target remixed
dress :: minuet via modcloth
sweater :: target remixed
heels :: seychelles clue bootie remixed
necklace :: via noto remixed
ring :: kiel mead forget me knot remixed
bracelet :: kate spade remixed
bag :: foley + corinna remixed

  1. Love that dress - perfect length for you, and those cute shoes make the look and really make your legs look longer - which is why I wear a lot of nude shoes with summer bare legs :)
