Pre-Graduation-Pictures Pictures

Yesterday I went up to north campus with Matt to snap a few pictures before the actual graduation festivities begin. I'll be taking a bunch more with my family today and tomorrow, but I thought it'd be good to get a few practice poses in. Plus I could wear a more casual outfit in these - not that I'm not pumped to wear my new red lace Shabby Apple dress!

We ended up running up there pretty quick in between the rain. It started pouring once we took out the tripod to take a few pictures together! So we ran. And that was the end of our Wednesday picture time adventure.

These were taken with my new camera! Hooray!

Ringing the UGA Chapel Bell:

With the arch, the symbol of the University of Georgia. (It's a legend that if a freshman walks underneath it then they'll never graduate. So most students refuse to walk under it until they graduate, just in case. I haven't yet!):


skirt, shoes, bow: forever 21
blouse: kohls
belt: thrifted



Matt and I in front of the arch. This is when we started to get rained on:


I'll be participating in a convocation ceremony today! And then tomorrow is the big cap and gown graduation day. So be prepared for more UGA and graduation themed posts within the next few days.

Happy happy Thursday!

Yay for graduation! Yay for such a cute outfit!

I like that cute like tradition. We have a tradition at my school about an arch too! However, our is an arch in a dorm, so people have to walk under it. We have a thing in the beginning of the year called storming of the arch and the freshman try to get through, with the upperclassmen (especially the rugby team) defending it; it says that if the freshmen get through they get free housing. They have never gotten through. :)

Your university looks so cute compared to the ones we get in the UK haha! Also, seriously love the outfit!

You are very cute! I love that first picture. My alma mater has a similar deal to UGA's gate, except ours was with a seal on the floor of one of the main buildings. I still haven't stepped on it, even though I graduated four years ago! Congratulations on graduating :)
