“…and turn the page to begin a new chapter.” -Marissa Cummings
I didn’t expect that I would graduate high school so soon. I can still remember in first grade when I thought to myself, “Wow, you’re never getting out of elementary school” (I was a very optimistic child). I remember my first day of high school. The awkward introductions, the unfamiliar faces, the desire to fit in in this sea of unknown… High school was a great experience; a place where I met my best friends, strengthened friendships, and learned a whole lot more than what was presented in the classroom. I will never forget the memories I made in high school, and I thank everyone who I ever encountered in high school because each and every person, whether the encounter was positive or negative, shaped me, bettered me.
To all my dear friends, I will seriously miss you. No one from my high school will be going to my college in the fall, and part of me is really sad about the fact that I won’t be able to bother Leah in Economics, to see Grace fall asleep, to nag at Kevin about everything, to be disgusted at how cute Paul and Marissa are, or even to recite Spongebob with Abi and Ronald. However, I know that although all our paths are diverging, somehow, someday we will all meet again. It may not be next week. It may not be next year. It may not be the year after that. Somehow, someday, we will meet again.

Enough with my sappy feelings and on with the outfit! My mom and I are Ann Taylor addicts. We always browse that store and look at all their look book type advertisements, but we always wait until their sales. The Memorial Day sale was A+! I believe it was 60% off of their clearance section, and man, we took advantage. This dress I wore under my cap and gown was a steal, and I love all of the details. From the tweed texture to the eyelet trims, this shift dress was perfect. I paired everything with simple jewelry and my mini wedge ballet flats (did that phrase even make sense?). I didn’t want to trip on stage, and knowing me, I probably would have.
Graduation itself was pretty chill and a lot longer than I had expected, but I had fun sitting with all people in my row, clapping for my friends and laughing about how some names were butchered. After graduation, I didn’t spend too long taking pictures outside in the sweltering sun, and my family and I rushed to celebrate with my favorite food: Mexican food. Look at that salsa shot. So good.

This is Ronald Pabello. He wanted to be in my fashion blog. He’s a better model than me.
My dog, Chibi, wanted to tell you to have a nice day!
Thanks for taking the time to read this post! Have a wonderful day!
