Top: ASOS | Skirt: Zara | Bag Urban Outfitters | Shoes (not shown): New Look via ASOS
You may have noticed that recently there have been a fair few new pieces purchased in the name of the boyfriends graduation. And after so many of you said you were struggling with ideas I thought it only fair to show you (sorry if your graduation has already been!). It was super boiling on the day which scuppered my plans for my neon trimmed blazer – however it wasn’t so hot that it was acceptable for friends and family to wear very small shorts – something I felt should be allowed (I’m super irritable when it comes to wearing clothes during the summer).
In the end I went for one of my all time favourite pieces – my dipp hemmed skirt from Zara, and a slouchy ASOS cami. Yes I look like the Grim Reaper’s intern, but they were so loose and comfy that I breezed through the day without a single complaint, and didn’t feel inappropriately dressed for a second! The boyfriends sister even showed up wearing an incredibly similar outfit. Well, you know what they say about great minds…
OH AND… I’m up for a Cosmo Blog Award under Best Established Beauty Blog. If you love reading Hello October as much as I love editing it, then make sure you give it a little vote – just because it’s nice 🙂 Once again, thank you so much for voting in the first place, it makes my day just to know that you cared enough to nominate me!
Gorgeous, I wish I could get away with black on black, you look so chic 🙂
Suzie you look beaut! It's my graduation friday and I've used it as such an excuse to go shopping! x
Love the outfit! I have a similar skirt from RI, they're great for us petite gals! x
I love the dress! I'd definitely wear something like that for a graduation
I really like this outfit, it looks causal but still sophisticated. Hope your boyfriend had a lovely graduation!

Such a pretty, simple dress, it looks lovely on you x
You look lovely! So pretty xx
Ah you look gorgeous – perfect for tackling this horrible heat!
Lovely outfit 🙂
Thanks for your outfit inspiration. I'm graduating on Thursday and still haven't definitely decided what to wear! This heat makes the decision 10x harder as well. My current favourite is a fitted black dress but not sure if it will be comfy enough. I'll be posting about my outfit and the day this weekend on www.agraduatesnewchapter.blogspot.co.uk.
You look so gorgeous! It's my graduation this Thursday so v excited although it's gonna be sweltering in a gown!
Lovely 🙂 Congratulations on your graduation!
