Happy Friday Lovebugs!
To finish off my mini Graduation series, I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek into the clutch that I took to the ceremony... and drinks afterwards. For the occasion, I turned to my trusty chain mail clutch from Biba (you'll find that in my outfit post HERE). That little baby is without a doubt my most used clutch bag - it makes a statement, can be paired with almost everything and is big enough to hold all of the essentials. Winning!
When strategically throwing things into your clutch before you leave you should think of 3 things - phone, money & touch-ups for photos.
Clearly nobody goes anywhere without their phone nowadays, it's always handier to have your phone and camera all in one on days like this so you can maximise space in your bag. Leave the heavy handling to someone else. Haha. You'll also have professional photographers there on the day to worry about your 'graduation pose' pics!
It's kinda a necessity to bring money with you wherever you go - I didn't have room for my larger MK wallet so I opted for my cute little Anya Hindmarch coin purse. It holds just enough!
After that, you've just gotta squeeze in enough products to touch up your makeup throughout the day! For me, that included MAC's 'Stone' Lipliner, 'Feline' Eyeliner & 'Blankety' Lipstick, Stila's 'major MAJOR' mascara and a fluffy brush. Sometimes the product that's already on the brush is just enough to keep the shine at bay!
And as an incase, bobby pins are always a good option - whether you've got your hair styled up or if you can't get your cap to stay in place (nobody wants their cap to fall off as they're going to collect their degree. And yes, that did happen to someone at my graduation!).
To sum it all up, you've basically just gotta remember the necessities and keep compact!
Can you think of anything I might have missed?
