Kindergarten graduation

Outfit Details:

dress - Anthropologie Tied Down dress, necklace - Banana Republic, belt - H&M, shoes - Joe Fresh, bag - Rebecca Minkoff

This morning, my little girl graduated from JK (junior kindergarten). The kids in her combined JK/SK class put on a charming concert for the parents.  Afterwards, the diplomas were awarded along with a tidbit about each graduate's favourite thing about school (Maya's favourite thing is playing with all her friends). The concert/ceremony was followed by a backyard lemonade and cookies social, while the kids played.

Awww, my little girl is growing up.  The good news is we get to do it all again when she graduates from JK for the second time next spring. LOL

In our school system, your start is determined the calendar year you were born.  Maya was born in early 2007, so technically she should start JK next September. But since we needed childcare and thought she'd do better in school than daycare, her montessori put her in the JK class a year early. And she's kept up just fine.

I decided this was the perfect opportunity to break out my new Tied Down dress from last week's Anthropologie visit. I love this dress. It's so comfortable and so versatile. For anyone interested, I sized down one from my normal Anthropologie sizing.

One of my favourite bloggers, Lisa from is having a giveaway to celebrate 1.5 years of blogging.  If you haven't checked out her blog, you should... and enter her fabulous giveaway as well.

Yay, you broke out the Tied Down Dress! This dress definitely needed a belt when I tried it on. Also when I wore it I also layered something underneath. It's such a simple look.
