Dress – Zara | Shoes – Micheal Kors | Cap and Gown -? Earrings and Necklace – From my family
I graduated with my fellow Fashion Promotion and Communications girls in the Guildhall. My mum and dad came and of course, Hayden was there to share in the moment with me. Three years of ups and downs but a Ba(Hons) is worth it all. “Educational” trips to London, Paris and Florence with my uni girls will forever be a high light. Sipping coffee before presentations in the cafe across the road. Frantic messages to each other trying to decipher the notes we had written in lectures.
University isn’t for the faint-hearted, but it will fill your mind and expand your horizons if you let it. You will be pushed to your limits let down by circumstance but you will achieve and create and have an amazing time.
The thank yous
To mum and dad for listening to me cry down the phone to them about silly things. For holding my hand when I needed it and for letting me go it alone. Marshaine, Poppy, Stella, Emily, Amy, Emily, Charis, Tess, Maruta. All incredible smart girls that have been with me on this three-year crash course on, how to create, become adults ( or at least pretend to be) make friendships and love fashion and be a good kind human.
Of course to Hayden for being the best guy. We’ve been together nearly 3 1/2 years and that whole time I’ve been in education working towards this moment. We worked towards it together.

Three years are over. I finish university this month and let me tell you I’ve been waiting for this day since I went into the third year. I wouldn’t say I was over university but I feel ready to start working and getting paid some money. I am over making coffee at the weekends being glued to a computer during the week, either at home or in the library, sitting on the train trying to not fall asleep to and from my university. I’m ready.
My ready-ness is also met with a lot of trepidation as there is no going back. Yes, I can do my masters right away but I want a break I want to be free. My happiness and trepidation helped develop these shots. I wore tan boots stood in a field of yellow, wore a beautiful pink floral dress from Zara, but everything is black and white. There is no colour just shape. I think you can see the thought in my face more then if you had the coloured photos you’d just think the shot were pretty.
I want to start my life but not end this chapter of it yet. My three-year long routine will be over and I will have to start anew.
Welcome to the real world.
