Grade 6 Grad Style:)

My Master 12 has just graduated Primary School.  He had his graduation last Thursday.  First half was the ceremony and for the second halfnparents left and and the school hosted a dinner for the students:)

Dress code was 'formal... for kids" and there was quite a variety of dress styles paraded by the boys from shirt and tie to shorts and tshirts (welcome to Australia:) ).  The girls all wore short dresses and I saw a lot of very high heels (we are talking 11 and 12 year olds).

Master 12 and I discussed what we thought we be appropriate and an authentic representation of how he sees himself so he decided on skinny black jeans, black hi tops, white tee, black vest and black blazer.  He is so my son!! I promise I did not influence the his colour palette:)

Just thought I would share a couple of photos:)

#1 was at home before we left
#2 was in the church foyer, and I was snapping away as he turned and gave me the "that's enough mum" look lol

So proud of my young man.

    He's so stylish at such a young age! His haircut is incredible too. Wow! I can definitely see mom's influence. :) 

  • Sal replied 8 years ago

    He looks great! My son had s similar night last year and he wore black skinny jeans shirt and tie(tie was compulsory!!).

    Hope the night was fun!

  • Echo replied 8 years ago

    Deborah, congratulations! Your son is definitely stylish and handsome at such a young age; there is no question he takes after his mum!

    And Sally, congrats to you, too! Your son looks great (and you have a beautiful home)!

    Echo - thank you!  My son is adorable and handsome and he is the opposite of stylish.  He wore this because it was the dress code - he lives in shorts and sports tees and has zero interest in clothes at all.  My 10 year old is the same.  I make sure they have trendy sneakers and redirect the rest of any shopping budget my way :) (or to be more honest into tennis and swimming lessons and tournaments).

    How cool he looked!
    Savour the moment Deborah- high school flies by so much faster.
    Does he have friends going to the same school next year?

    Look at these boys with their funky hair. I'm loving it Debs and Sally. Your boys look very dashing and handsome. They take after their stylish Mums. Congrats to both of you. 

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    So stylish! I hope he retains that sense of style moving forward. Congratulations!

  • Helen11 replied 8 years ago

    Deborah, congratulations to you and your stylish son. It is a special time.
    And Sally, what a handsome lad you have, too. Even if he doesn't care for fashion, at least he'll know how to dress for the occasion. (Which is what I hope for my boy!)
    Well done to both of you. Enjoy the holidays!

  • Summer replied 8 years ago

    It's obviously in the genes, Deb.  What a stylish lad.
    Sally, you also have a very dashing young man.  Well done to both of them.

    Very funky. I can see he's your son Deb.
    Sally my DD was saying how strange it is to see the boys dressed up.
    I just came back from her year 6 Grad. Lovely evening and she got a prize too.

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Sally your boy is gorgeously handsome and one looks great!

    Anne, your DD is so beautiful. Just like her mum. Such a lovely dress.

    Ladies thanks for your kind comments! I dropped !aster 12 at his new school today for orientation and I'm an emotional mess. He's so grown up! These milestones are wonderful and exciting but also a little anxiety producing for mums (well this one anyway lol).

  • Marilyn replied 8 years ago

    Super stylish just like his mom.  :)

    I totally get what you're saying about milestones.  For me, I just can't believe how fast time seems to pass.  My oldest is turning 29 in a few weeks and it just doesn't seem possible.   How can I possibly be the parent of a full blown adult!?  Next year will be a big milestone for both of us.

  • anne replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Deborah - I think she's beautiful too! (Of course) Hope she gets to wear the dress again - we splashed out and got it from Myer.

    High school is such a big step isn't it Deb?. And Marilyn I know - time does go fast. I was telling DD yesterday that when she was born 2008 (when she started school) seemed in  the very distant future - and now she has finished.

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Anne, your DD is gorgeous. A true natural beauty. She has your beautiful skin. 

  • anne replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Angie - she does have lovely skin - and I prefer it to mine as hers less olive/ yellow. She burns more easily though.

  • Helen11 replied 8 years ago

    Oh, these lovely kids.
    Anne, your daughter is beautiful.
    (Thank goodness mine are not this big yet. I know what Deb means about the milestones creating some anxious mums)

  • Summer replied 8 years ago

    Anne, your daughter is so beautiful, and her dress is perfect.  Gorgeous!

    Marilyn, it gets scarier, believe me.  Just wait 'til the next generation comes along!

  • Sal replied 8 years ago

    Anne, your daughter looks so similar to you, and she looks stunning for the dance.

    Thanks for your kind comments all.

    Deborah- it is a strange feeling. My youngest son finishes his primary school next week, and I feel very sad about it. He is keen to move to intermediate school though.

  • Cerinda replied 8 years ago

    Congratulations to all three of these lovely young people!  And Anne, Sally, Deborah: don't blink or they'll be off to university!

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    So New Wave!

  • Mochi replied 8 years ago

    Oh dear, I think I remember when he was Master Seven! :)  How handsome and self-possessed!
