My graduation day

Categories Uncategorized
I’ve already mentioned it a few times in a few posts, but this is finally the official one. I graduated from high school on the 20th of June. One big stage of my life is over and I’m not really sure if I’m happy or sad. I guess it hasn’t properly sunk in yet and this summer seems like any previous one, with the slight difference that I won’t be attending my dear old school in autumn, but instead going to university and starting a whole new period of life. 
As for my dress (the important part, obviously!), it’s vintage. But not just from a random vintage store, but it used to belong to my grandmother, made for her by her mother when she was about my age. I suddenly remembered about the dress one day and after trying it on and seeing that it fit like it was made for me, I couldn’t imagine not wearing it to my graduation. Paired with a few pretty necklaces, cute kitten heels and a lovely 60s-inspired hair-do, I felt like a princess. 
In the euphoria of the big day and being surrounded my the numerous congratulators (and maybe because of a slight buzz from the sparkling wine) I completely forgot to take proper photos of my dress and the whole outfit. Instead, we took lots of cute pictures with friends, so instead of one dressed up girl, you have five! I hope you enjoy the snaps and are ready to embark on a whole new journey with me! 
Olen seda küll juba paar korda mõnes postituses maininud, aga praegune on ametlik. Lõpetasin 20. juunil gümnaasiumi. Üks hiigelsuur periood mu elust on möödas ja ma ei oskagi öelda, kas ma olen pigem rõõmus või kurb. Ma usun, et see ei ole veel korralikult kohale jõudnud ja see suvi tundub nagu iga teinegi. Ainus erinevus on, et sügisel ei lähe ma tagasi oma kallisse kooli, vaid alustan ülikooliõpinguid ja täiesti uut eluetappi.
Mis mu kleiti puutub (mis on ju see oluline osa!), siis see on vintage. Aga mitte mõnest teise ringi poest ostetud lihtsalt ilus kleit, vaid kleit, mis kuulus mu vanaemale ja mille temale omakorda tegi tema ema. Mulle meenus see kleit ühel päeval ja kui ma olin seda proovinud ja nägin, et see istus mulle valatult, teadsin, et olin oma kleidi leidnud. Loomulikult on see superkonservatiivne, kõrge krae ja pika seelikuosaga, aga kandes seda koos kahe imeilusa kaelakeega, armsate kingadega ja 60ndatest inspireeritud soenguga, tundsin ennast kui printsess.
Kogu päeva eufooriast ja ümbritsevatest õnnitlejatest (ja võib-olla ka väikesest vahuveinisurinast) tingituna unustasin täielikult, et võiks kogu riietusest ka korralikud pildid teha. Selle asemel tegime mõned armsad pildid sõpradega koos ehk ühe lõpetaja asemel on hoopis viis! Nautige pilte ja olge valmis asuma minuga täiesti uuele teekonnale!

  1. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.

    guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of
    the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
