Top: J.Crew ~ Pants: J.Crew ~ Shoes: Steve Madden ~ Lipstick: Perfect Red by NYX
When deciding upon which dress I would wear to graduation it hit me that I would not wear a dress, but an OUTFIT. These have been some of the most creative years of my life, so why would I settle for any old dress? I tried on this black lace pant and top set at J.Crew and just knew it was perfect. The lace is so detailed and elegant, it is perfect for any holiday party you my be attending this year! The wonderful part about this set is that...well it's a set! I've worn the top with light jeans and a flowy sweater, and I've worn the pants with a bright sweater tucked in and a jean jacket over top. These pieces are incredibly versatile, and can easily be dressed up or down.
My time in college, and Chattanooga are all coming to an end and that my friends is cause for much reflection. If you know me at all, then you know I am an incredibly sentimental person. I subconsciously find meaning in everything, and you better believe that part of my brain has been buzzing as I tie up my time in college in a pretty bow. I could sit here and write paragraph after paragraph detailing each wonderful memory, but that is why I have a journal. I'll put it simply and say I'm grateful for all of it. Every lecture, friendship, organization, laugh, cry, and awkward moment (and there were many of those). All of these are memories now; some will fade, but some I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I have been so incredibly blessed with a such a wonderful community in Chattanooga, and I will cherish that forever.
Phew, man I told you that might get sappy. So you may be asking yourself, "What's next for ole Mollie Anna?", and I'm so glad you asked! Sunday I leave for Europe for three weeks to travel with my dear friend Courtney, but don't worry I will blog every adventure we encounter. When I return in January I will be heading out west...(wait for it)...and moving to California! This move is not permanent, but my wonderful brother has oh so graciously opened his home to me as I process postgrad life. I hope in this time to process these past four years, and figure out what's next! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! I wish you all the best, and I'll see you in the New Year!
