Planet Mom's Top Graduation Picks

Nothing compares to the pride and happiness you feel when you see your child march down the aisle and get her diploma. As a parent, a grade school graduation means that we are halfway towards our dream of seeing our child get a degree in college. For our daughter, it is a start of another journey of endless possibilities. We couldn't be any more proud.

I'm one proud momma!
Sure, your child may be marching down the aisle, but you also want to feel good and look good on your daughter's special day. Unfortunately, there are times when mommy duties get in the way thus, making it challenging to have enough time to check out the mall and find the dress for the big day. Thank God for online shops like Lazada Ph because it makes shopping easier for busy moms like me.

What are my top picks?

1. Dion and Mary Jaclyn Dress (Paisley Blue)
I'm not so much of a dress person so I often go for comfortable and stylish blouses. I love the color and most importantly, it is button down which makes it easier for me if I need to nurse my son. This can be paired up with slacks (if you want to go formal) and denims (if you want to go casual).

2. Twinky Macy Suede Peep Toe Heels
I find this pair of shoes formal yet fun. You can use this whether you may be wearing a dress or a pair of slacks.

3. Alberto Handbag
I like my bags spacious so I can stuff one extra cloth nappy, baby wipes together with my make up (for retouch) and other essentials. It's classic and it goes well with any occasion.

4. Samsung ST150F 16.2 MP Digital Camera
Definitely a must-have. You want to have that perfect camera to capture each moment because this is one event that shouldn't be missed. Your baby will graduate from pre-school, grade school, high school or college only once. (Unless they plan to do things all over again, which I'm not sure if its allowed. He he!)
This Samsung camera has Wi-Fi connectivity and takes quality images because it has 5x optical zoom and 16.2 megapixels.

When you have everything set, all you have to do is sit back, smile and take everything in. Remind yourself too to give yourself a pat on the back and say, "Good job, Mommy!"
