Spring is finally here, and graduation season is just around the corner. If you’re a current senior who’s preparing to wrap up this academic chapter of your life, first of all, congratulations! Your hard work and effort these past few years are about to pay off, and you deserve all the love and positive vibes that come with finally walking down that graduation stage and receiving your diploma.

You absolutely deserve to treat yourself to some retail therapy, but if splurging on a graduation dress isn’t quite in the budget right now, I’ve got you covered. As a fellow graduating college senior, I know how important it is to save every penny you can, whenever you can, especially as we prepare to step out into the oh-so-scary “real world.” I love a good deal as much as I love a gorgeous dress, and there’s no reason why we can’t have the best of both worlds.

From whimsical dresses that feel like blooming spring flowers to classy jumpsuits with a touch of elegant flair, I’ve rounded up all the best finds from Nordstrom Rack, Amazon, Francesca’s and more that will have you shining on stage this spring without breaking the bank. So, as the ever-iconic Elle Woods once said, “You must always have faith in yourself” (and your shopping abilities).

Congratulations class of 2023— we did it!
