WIWS (Vol.20)

Well it is official, my brother has joined the ranks of high school graduate.  Yesterday was his baccalaureate Mass, which by the way does anyone know the history of baccalaureate Masses anyway?  Since that Mass fulfilled our Sunday obligation I figured that would qualify as the WIWS outfit. 

Dress: TJ Maxx/Marshalls
Sweater: Target
Braided Belt: Goodwill
Shoes:  Payless, ($19.99, score for wedding season!!)

And why not throw in what I actually wore on Sunday.

Right after graduation with my grandma.

Excited that now we both have our Gilmour Academy diplomas and medallions. 

And a rare thing happened too, I actually got a good picture of my brother receiving his diploma from Br. Lavelle. 

The details of the outfit:
Dress: one of my favorite dresses that I got at Target a few years ago
Bracelet:  Jade that my dad picked up for me from the Jade Market in Hong Kong, I remember wearing it to my own graduation
Shoes:  You can't see them but these new ones I love from Payless....darn it they are cheaper now than when I bought them a few weeks ago.  

And no they do not wear caps and gowns.  The guys wear dark suits and the girls wear white dresses. 

Congratulations Matthew on successfully completing high school, best of luck as you move on to University of Pittsburgh-maybe I will just have to stop in sometime      



  1. I love how the belt pairs with the dress! Super cute! And congratulations to your brother!

  2. I love both of those dresses! The detail on the top of the second one is really pretty!
