Ending Comes With A New Beginning

Sunday, April 12, 2015

At this moment, I am still stuck in a phase where my mind grasps the thought that I cannot ask the driver for a student fare anymore and that, I will now enter the so-called real world.
Five days ago, I was with so many people dressed in identical caps and gowns at Manila Hotel to attend a very special event. And that day marks the end of my life at CEU.

It may be the end but I see it as a new beginning. Very cliche, I know. For us graduates, as we step at the center stage and take a bow, we welcome the new chapter of our lives. It may be thrilling because there are lots of competencies out there juggling that job interview you've been dreaming to have ever since and all you think is how you will ace that. Now, I am grateful to land a job in a well-known media company in the Philippines before I even graduate. Imagine, a college girl already has her job before her graduation. Lucky I am says other people because only few are given this chance but to me, it's not just luck that I have. I have my confidence and rosary with me. That's what keeps me achieving things I want.

So, on to my graduation outfit. I opted for a simple, chic, and elegant look. I did not put any blings and tings on me because I just want my look to be simple. With a white dress and black pointed heels, I achieved the look that I want. Don't you think? :)

Dress from ForMe | Heels from H&M | Bag from River Island


If you know me well, you would be shocked if you see me wearing a bunch of accessories hanging on my neck or arms. You'd probably be surprised to know that I'm not fond of accessories because my style is very girly. The usual girly girl has always her dress, skirt, and necklace with her. But to me, I just have my necklace hidden in its box. Haha!

But then, like what I have said, my style is girly so I just can't take those accessories away from my closet. I need those, too. You know, for emergency purposes. Lol. And as summer starts, different styles of accessories come in the market. Just to help you out in finding high-quality shops online, I found a gorgeous selection of jewelry at ZALORA. Aside from its cute and elegant designs, the accessories are very much affordable! Trust me! I also thought of looking for shops that sell today's trendy necklaces such as chokers and quartz charms which I found at Copper and Accent Archive. Just in time for the summer trends, right?

These are the top three shops that I chose because they are very stylish yet affordable. :)

  13. Congrats to you for graduating and bagging a job even before graduating! Wow, what a pride you are :) I'm planning to shift to MassCom by next semester, though I'm still pretty confused :( Need some more convincing, I guess. Haha. Love your outfit btw! I'd choose that chic look anytime for an event like this :)

      Mass Communication is fun and exciting! Trust me. If that's really your interest, go for it. Choose Mass Com if you're really into it 'cause if not, you will feel exhausted at any time of the day working on projects. Think about it, but I assure you, the course is fun :)
