Going out in Style: Perfect Graduation Outfits

Graduation is approaching fast! Stuck between making the most of your final days, saying goodbyes, and getting excited about starting the next chaper in your life…

But the real question is, What are you going to wear?

You have taken a lot of time the past four years to craft the perfect wardrobe that is just the right amount of adorable blouses, comfy sweats and a few “business professional” items but none of that is going to make the cut.  IT’S GRADUATION DAY, no fear here are a few looks to help you looking great all day.

Prepster

Prepster: Give your collegiate look a makeover by adding bight colors to your basics such as this hot pink pencil skirt and canary yellow blazer. Pair these bold pieces with a gold watch, strapy crème heels and shimmer lipgolss to create an overall finish.

Classic

Classic: A timeless look, this dress is just the right amount of sophistication. Blush and nude acessories give this outfit a feminie feel and keeps the mood light for spring. A swipe of eyeliner, pink lip-goss and a pack of tissues will keep you fresh throughout the day.

Funky

Funky: Feeling playful? This vibrant asymetrical dress and floral & striped heels are just what you need! Paired with a clear crossbody to keep your “snacks for later” in. Add a pastel nail polish and fancy studs to complete this outfit.

What look with you choose? Eiher way have fun with it. Make sure you stock up on the waterproof mascara, tissues and cadies to share with your friends. Let us know what your wearing to graduation by sharing your outfits and inspiration @UBlushMagazine!

Khaki Pants: One of my personal favorites! These pants are comfy, adorable and you can find them in almost every color. I added a bright floral print t-shirt to spruce up the neutral bottoms. Adding a pastel sandal and pop-of-color watch and simplistic ring pulls the entire look together. Keep this look classic by pairing it with a basic textured purse.

Leather Jacket: There is nothing like a leather jacket to give any outfit some edge, but when it comes to spring we want to lighten up the mood by adding lots of bold colors! Pair a high-waisted skirt with a crop top; both essential this season. I love adding fun accessories such as these fruit sunglasses and colored bangles; this outfit has me dreaming of soaking up the sun at an outdoor concert.

Riding Boots: These knee high riding boots are great for walking during colder months but don’t let them sit in the back of your closet this season. By pairing them with a patterned dress with lots of color and a simple yet electric clutch, your everyday brown boots become perfect for getting drinks with the ladies! Don’t forget a fresh fragrance and stackable bracelets.

Flannel: Everyone has a cozy flannel that we are holding onto from the winter months but it’s time to give this staple a makeover. A graphic tee and high-waisted shorts keeps a casual vibe. Add a pair of converse, sunglasses, and floral headband to give this outfit a street style appeal ready for an afternoon bike ride.

Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 11.50.42 AM

Patterned Leggings: They were everywhere this winter from stripes, camo, polka dots and even galaxy print – patterned leggings are here to stay. I chose to add a statement blouse with cutouts and floral embroidery. I am obsessing over this “limone” (Italian for Lemon) wristlet and gorgeous diamond earrings paired with a trendy heel gives this everyday outfit a sense of attitude.

Cardigan: This is an essential in every girl’s wardrobe. Perfect for keeping worm at the office and cuddling up on the couch but this spring it’s time to take your cardigan out to paly. A funky sneaker, sheer top (pairs well with a lace bralette or bandeau) and broken in denim shorts are great for spending the day in the park. Grab an oversized bag and swipe on some eyeliner to complete this look!

Spring is here! Let your closet make the transition with you and the flowers as your wardrobe evolves into beautiful warm weather outfits. Share your transitional looks with us @UBlushMagazine !

Spring Into Romance

Beginning

After spending the winter getting cozy with your lover and hopefully going on some exciting dates through out the chillier months its finally time to open up the windows and let in the fresh air or make a trip outside!

Here are some exciting dates perfect for night & day – so ditch the blankets and grab your babe for some spring fun.

GetActive

Get Active

The couple that plays together stays together! It’s time to get outside and make the most of the adventures that are all around you.

  1. Hiking: A great way to exert energy while spending some alone time with your significant other and taking in the scenery. For added romance, take a night hike with just a flashlight as your guide (works best if you have taken the path in the daylight first).
  2. Bike Rides: Most cities have bike paths and parks ready to be explored.
  3. Sporting Events: Surprise your boyfriend with tickets to a baseball game! Get involved in community leagues, or play catch in the back yard. Also, catch a Hockey game before the season comes to a close.
  4. Zip Line: don’t turn away from this seemingly scary activity. Some are designed to be more leisurely and some give you just enough of an adrenaline rush!

SpruseUpThe Home

Spruce Up The Home

After the long winter months, most of us can probably agree that its time to bring a little brightness into our homes.

  1. Spring Cleaning: A classic way to spend quality time together is cleaning. No, I don’t mean let’s do the laundry and dishes together, rather let’s make our home an enjoyable place for the both of us by adding new wall art or storing the extra blankets.
  2. The Earth Laughs In Flowers (and plants): There are plenty of flowers and plants that are great to have around the house. Or maybe, now is the time for you to start you garden together or improve the landscaping!
  3. DIT – Do It Together: Pick out a new paint color and give your furniture, front door, or living room wall a make over. If you are feeling crafty introduce your BF to Pinterest and find something you can make together.

Yummy

Yummy

With the change of weather we are all getting excited to incorporated fruity flavors and try new recipes that pair perfectly with cocktails on the porch.

  1. Picnic in the Park: Pack a basket full of your favorite foods and drinks, and enjoy an afternoon under a shade tree.
  2. Fruit Farms: Go organic and visit your local apple orchard or strawberry farms. This is a healthy and fun daytime activity! Try incorporating your yummy fruits into a new recipe such as salads and desserts.
  3. Mixed Drinks: Everyone enjoys a refreshing drink, alcoholic or not, while enjoying the sun. Try making a new drink, (that you both enjoy) every Saturday and invite friends over for your own happy hour.

GoOutside

Go Outside

It’s finally warm so what better way to spend the afternoon than enjoying the sun.

  1. Garden Gurus: There are plenty of types of gardens you and your sweetie can explore together. Find tranquility walking through a botanical, butterfly, or peace garden. If you are up for more of a challenge hedge mazes are lots of fun!
  2. Drive in Movies: With the weather getting warmer its time to take your movie-nights-in, outdoors. Pack up the car with blankets, pillows and snacks – just the right ingredients for snuggling with your significant other.
  3. Animal Loving: The zoo is never a dull place! Between the penguins, elephants and adorable animal t-shirts you are sure to have an adventure. Also, many zoos have special events such as behind the scene tours that give you a chance to interact with the animals.

Don’t forget to show off your new skills, experiences and clean home to your friends by inviting them over for a couple’s night or meet at the local park! Spring is a perfect time to make fresh foods and create memories in the warm air while spending time with your love.
