Floaty graduation

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: July 13th, 2011

Yesterday I attended my younger brother’s graduation ceremony at Royal Holloway University in Surrey (not the Holloway Prison in London as most people assume so), I wore a pretty print georgette dress bought from Benetton the other day.  Paired with black suede heels and a velvety-fur trimmed clutch, the style looks basic and yet chic.

I love the Victorian-gothic architecture of the university building, it has a touch of Harry Potter-esque.  I hear Basic Instinct 2 was filmed there and other mentions in the best selling book The Da Vinci Code.

Some interesting colour palette on ceremony robes.

The after-ceremony is all about having fun and celebration with close friends and family.  Hat throwing is a favourite tradition with students, the end of c’est la vie hardship, now they are leading a new life as a graduate in a quest to find a dream career.

Are you graduating or attending a graduation ceremony this Summer?  If so, what will you be wearing?

The print georgette dress (style 4M5ASV1V4) retails for £49.90 and is available in selected United Color of Benetton stores.
