Can I just say now that Flourless Cake is quite possibly my actual soul mate? #passovergoodness
Oh and here is a photo of me before the sedar on Tuesday night. I wore a nice little conversative pencil dress (from Charlotte Rousse) and ate, drank, & was merry with new friends and old friends. We are lucky to have a really great rabbi on campus! It made being away from my family so much easier. He is a really wonderful speaker :)
If you go to school or when you went to school, what did you find yourself wearing most of the time?
Did you like to stand out or blend in?
I like to do my hair in the morning and put together something cute but simple--you never know who you're going to meet (my mom always says) and I personally was glad I looked my best when one of my professors brought in a visiting professor from another campus that was seriously Dr. Hotstuff. No wedding ring either...just saying!
I thought I could live in your arms
And spend every moment I had with you
Stay up all night with the stars
Confess all the faith that I had in you
Happy Mid-week Wednesday :)
My parents hate how revealing (in the back) my blouse is but I love an open back (as long as I can sneak a bra in, I'm sold). I got these boots in DC and have worn them nearly every day ever since. They are so amazingly broken in and comfortable. A bit of a bitch to pull on but once they are on, I'm ready to rock'n'roll!
There I was in a Mexican themed dive bar with sand and dirt on the floors and christmas lights strung from the plank-like ceiling, tapping my boots to a band called the Redneck Rockstars with two of my best-in-the-west girl friends!
I couldn't believe what a different kind of life I live in now--I had a moment, looking past the bleary eyed guy promising tequila shots and slurred singing to his girlfriend and couldn't help but think that I was in such a different and cool place than I had ever been.
I'm pretty okay with Carrie Underwood/Faith Hill/Shania Twain kind of country-lite music! I may even be planning on testing the waters of line dancing with my friends this spring/summer season!
I guess there's nothing wrong with letting the cowgirl come out every once in a while. I mean--I kind of live in the west now!
I'm far from New York but close to something good. I can feel it.
Ipad case by Kate Spade that I completely lucked out by finding @ TJ Maxx this morning for---19,99. How great is that? Plus I had my special Easter bonus associate's discount this weekend...so I also bought this new pair of Kenneth Cole aviators (@ $12.99) because I couldn't find my UO ones anywhere. I love that my new case is super padded and has a built in stand. My Lily Pullitzer alligator one was super duper adorable--a much cuter pattern, to be honest) but didn't fit as nicely or have as much cushion or the bulit-in stand feature :D
Love Kate Spade. And her brother-in-law, David, too!
Find any good Springtime steals yet?
It's a gorgeous day but it's cold at work so I dressed a bit fall-ish.
