I can't believe it's already been 4 weeks since I graduated high school! This was a huge accomplishment for me. First of all because I've graduated high school!!! And because I've been sick a lot which has meant that I've missed out on a lot of school. I've been really worried about passing my exams and worried about catching up on everything. But I did it! And I couldn't be prouder because I passed with flying colours! I actually got As on all my written exams!!! :D
I thought I would share some pictures of what I wore to my high school graduation. In Norway we don't wear the typical graduation robes and hats people in the US wear. We wear our national costume or, if you don't have the national costume, you wear a pretty dress or suit (if you're a guy). I wore my national costume which is from the region I live in, Sør-Trøndelag. I got my costume for my confirmation when I was 15 and I love it! It's really beautiful. Each part of Norway has a unique national costume, and you have a costume from the region you're from.
The national costume has lots of different parts to it. We have a purse, 2 brooches, earrings, shoes, a vest, skirt, shirt, apron - even pantyhose to match! And each costume is hand made for you!! So each costume is your unique piece - which makes it even more special.
Take a look...
The vest, skirt and apron are all wool.. so it gets pretty hot (I was pretty hot
