If you noticed that last week I wasn’t posting much here or on my Instagram, it’s because my whole family was in town for my graduation from New York University! The fact that I now have my master’s degree seems pretty surreal, but it was such an exciting moment and I’m so glad that I took part in all of the festivities with all of my friends and classmates. We had two separate ceremonies — one for the entire university and one for just my school — and Pharrell was actually our commencement speaker and got an honorary master’s degree. Even though I was absolutely melting in the sweltering heat (I’m talking mascara dripping down my face) his speech made it worth it. I’ll still be here in NYC this summer finishing a final requirement for my program so I’m excited for lots of beach weekends and rooftop parties.
This post will be two-in-one because I wanted to share a new outfit post since I haven’t in a while and also a photo from my graduation below. If you were watching my Instagram stories you know that after I took this photo I wanted to take a cute boomerang where I was tossing my cap in the air. Well, I tossed it too far and it landed in the giant fountain were I had to take my shoes off and fish it out! Graduation fail. Then we had a delicious dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse and spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the nice weather. Congratulations to anyone else who graduated this month!
