Hey guys!

I’m writing this post from the bus as I am on my way to Quebec City to celebrate my dad’s birthday. It is such a gorgeous day outside and I am so excited to get out of the city to enjoy it!

Last Saturday was my grad ball and I wanted to share some photos of this very special event with all of you. As I’ve mentioned before, I still need to take 4 classes to graduate, but it truly felt like the end of a chapter on that evening! For the occasion, I wore a long navy blue dress with a bright flower pattern from Asos. I wanted something that was both classy and fun to celebrate the event. Plus, since the dress isn’t too formal, I’ll be able to wear it again for weddings or dinners. I opted for a long dress since I wanted to wear flats to have total comfort during the evening. Besides, since I am 6″0 tall, I usually try to avoid making me look even taller! Overall I was so happy with my look. It was chic, classy, fun and comfortable.

As for the evening, I didn’t have any specific expectations, but it turned out better than I could have imagined! My friends Geneviève and Christina came to my apartment before the ball so we could all have a glass of champagne, and then we headed to the Marché Bonsecours in Old Montreal to snap a few photos. My boyfriend Marc-André even met up with us to say hello and take a few pictures with me as well! It was such a great way to kick off the evening.

The ball itself was amazing! The decor was beautiful (as you may have seen on my Instagram) and the little appetizers during the happy hour were sooo good. I kept running after the waiters!

Since this was such an important night for me, I wanted to share some photos of it on my blog. I hope you enjoy!! By the way, I recently added snapchat on my phone, so if you’d like you can follow me at @candidlyjulie 🙂

Although it may seem Marc-André and I are always fairly serious in our pictures, it takes a lot of shots to get those kinds of photos as you can see below… 🙂

Photo Voltaic was the official photographer for the evening, and here are a few great photos they snapped during the celebration…

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked this sneak peek of my grad ball 🙂 Xx
