I wore this outfit under my master’s robe for graduation. Pencil skirts are my “teacher wardrobe” staple and I love hot pink too much to pass this one up (along with too many other hot pink items J.Crew came out with that season). When wearing one loud color, I generally like to keep everything else simple and neutral. The closeup shot is of my nails that I painted purple and gold for graduation in honor of my school’s colors.

    Seriously love this look, Carolyn – hot pink and lace!! I love J.Crew pencil skirts, but they just don't fit me right!! You look absolutely beautiful on your big day!

    I also love the school pride on your nails!

    Love your outfit!! The pink is so pretty and reminds me of cotton candy. Congrats on graduating, that's very exciting. I'm also a fashion/food blogger in Seattle who recently just started. Great to find another Seattle blogger : )
