Sister Style

graduation
(rachel's dress from banana republic; my cardigan from target and dress from emersonmade)

My little sister graduated from college this weekend (CONGRATULATIONS!!). My eyes leaked through most of the ceremony because I am a sentimental mother-hen. My sister, Rachel, is super-stylish and I had big plans to share some of her outfits along with my own but sadly, we only managed to get one shot of what we wore all weekend:

graduation
(rachel's dress is forever 21, her flats from urban outfitters, and her cardigan j. crew outlet; my tee is urban outfitters, flats target, skirt j. crew, belt from our mom)

However, among the pictures our dad took was this hilarious one--like men in black crossed with a J. Crew catalog :)

graduation

It was a great weekend but I'm excited to start catching up this week with new outfit posts, new giveaways, and a book recommendation post. And, ahem, tackling my email account.

What a sweet post. Congratulations to your sister! My sister and I are really close, and my "eyes leaked" all through her high school graduation ceremony, too.

Congrats to your sis! It must be nice to share that important milestone with her. By the way, I love the outfits you girls are wearing in the first picture....very pretty!

MAUD said...

oh my gosh! you two look so beautiful (great hair runs in your family - sorry if that's weird). congratulations to her! i kind of wish i had a big sister who had gone through the ropes before me, but i'm also really excited to be the 'big sister' when my little sis graduates from high school in a few years.

ps. i'm glad to read that you said 'graduated FROM college.' i have a bunch of american friends who say 'graduated college.' like 'when i graduate college, i'll start looking for a job.' what?!? am i a total grammar stickler, or is that totally incorrect?

Salazar said...

You guys look so cute together! And congrats to your sister!

(My sister and I used to dress similarly too, but now that she's married with a kid... not so much! :D)

maud, hmm i'm not sure! i probably wouldn't say "graduate college" without the "from" but i don't know the exact grammatical rule.

i've also never posted. but i recognize your sister's college too! i graduated from there 6 years ago back when graduation used to be inside. anyway it just made me happy to see!

Elisabeth said...

Congrats, Rachel! You guys look so cute. I can't believe she's already done with college...

hurricanekerrie said...

Oh I love the Men In Black photo! congrats to your sister-- I love her dress!

I'm very close to my own little sister, we're really best friends (we share an apartment and she takes a lot of my photos hahah) and though we have a big age gap, I hardly ever feel it. My eyes are prolly going to leak when she graduates...

Pineapple said...

Thank you for your vote and your support! I really appreciate you being there for me during this trying time.
