The Iyer Order

Casual Outfits


Hello everyone! I wanted my first ever blog post to focus on a memorable outfit. I recently graduated with a Masters degree in Civil Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. I moved to America in 2015 to pursue higher education, and I’m so blessed to have gotten this experience. Being an international student came with its challenges, but I felt completely at home in Austin right from the start. It is such a welcoming city!

For my graduation outfit, I wanted to keep things simple as I had to wear my regalia during the ceremony and wanted to be comfortable. This dress fits like a glove (although quite unforgiving when you have a food baby 🙁 ). While shopping for my graduation dress, I figured I’d rather invest in something versatile that I can wear multiple times, especially as a student on a budget. I’m excited to style it again in a different way in the future! I added gold jewelry and completed the look with my trusty trench coat and black pumps.
