Quickie update

If you're wondering what black hole I fell into, the answer is this:


Yes...we are selling our house.  The listing went live on Friday, we had 4 showings Saturday, and woke up to an offer on Monday.  Don't want to jinx us but we're tentatively closing at the end of May.

We're not moving very far--just closer to Annapolis so my commute can stop being the worst, and so I can see more of both CJ and the mids (and less of the inside of my car).

Triumphant Return

I'm baaaaaaaack!  And guess what?  I don't have to host a debate tournament for another, like 350 days.  It's AWESOME.  

I didn't manage to get pics of everything I wore (missing my boring pinstripe suit on Friday night and my cute leopard dress on Saturday) but here are a few at least:

Thursday (my husband told me I looked like Amy Adams--you know, OSCAR NOMINATED Amy Adams?  But I think it's just the photo angle.)


Nanette Lepore Dress
Theory Cashmere Cardigan
Dansko Loafers
J Crew Star Necklace 

Sunday (oh my very grainy...this was a crop of a cell phone picture):


Kate Spade Jada Dress
Sophie Cashmere Cardigan
Ugg Josette Boots 
Jones New York Scarf

Monday:



J Crew Maggie Jacket 
(You can't see my navy J Crew ponte dress or my vintage trophy pin but I promise I'm dressed thematically.)

 Thursday (a few snow days intervened to let me catch up on my sleep, which was awesome.  A+, polar vortex of doom.):


J Crew Factory Sequin Bow Cardigan
J Crew Peter Pan Collar Dress
Ugg Josette Boots (switched out when I got to work)
Kate Spade Bow Watch

Here are the shoes I switched into (Kate Spade flannel flats):


And now more Amy Adams:

A Few Good Pics

Pics will come in fits and starts, but I'm still wearing clothes, I promise.


Saturday (headed to my high school best friend's wedding shower):
Kate Spade Cardigan
Banana Republic Blouse
J Crew Minnie Pants
Ugg Josette Boots
Kate Spade "Army Candy" and "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" bangles

I switched shoes when I got there to these:


CJ's in a Gap sweatshirt (duh), Gymboree leggings, and Converse slip-ons.



Monday (my outfit was thoroughly boring--black dress, black tights, black shoes--so I thought I'd do an outerwear shot):
Kate Spade Coat
Kate Spade Scarf
J Crew Ponte Dress
DKNY Shoes
Brooch from the Smithsonian Cherry Blossom Exhibit


Tuesday:
Anthropologie HD in Paris Violante Dress
Anthropologie Moth Precious Materials Cardigan
J Crew Bow Flats
Kate Spade Bow Earrings

Pic quality--our old Nikon has bit the dust after 8+ years of service.  I am ISO a new one.  I don't want to drop a grand on a new camera so I'm looking for a point and shoot that will give me crisp and pretty outfit shots without breaking the bank.  Any idears?

Back to Reality

Class started this week!

Best look scholarly for the first day...:

Eva Franco Frames and Fortune Dress via Modcloth
J Crew Martina Wedges 
Kate Spade Pearl Earrings

And today I ran around in this:


J Crew Factory Bow Sweater
Banana Republic Blouse
Joe Fresh Jeans
Sperry boots
Kate Spade Watch
Kate Spade Bow Earrings

Yep.  My Christmas decorations are still up.  No judgment!  We're taking them down this weekend.  I was away last weekend and Tom knows that my aggressive OCPD will brook no one else taking them down.

Playing Catch Up--Again...

Kate Spade Dress
J Crew Jackie Cardigan
Hue Tights

(Mom's in Talbots.  CJ's in a dress from the Target/Neiman's collab last Christmas and Seychelles shoes.)

Sorry for the extended radio silence, between finals, a trip to NYC, Christmas, New Year's, and a debate tournament in California, all crammed into less than 3 weeks...things have been a little cray-cray around here.

Coming up I have my own debate tournament to host in T-10 days.  So posting will still be sporadic.  However I have a quick moment and a serious outfit backlog so here we go!

First a very few NYC pics:

Christmas Morning at my parents' house:



Okay enough Christmas!!!  (Just kidding.  But I have no more cute pics that aren't repetitive.)

No pics at the debate tournament because...I'm lazy and I forgot my camera I was super busy.

Back to the grind.

Tuesday:

J Crew Minnie Pants
Ugg Josette Boots

Wednesday:


Anthropologie Pleated Ponte Dress

Bad news (for me) y'all--my Ugg run ends tomorrow.  Back in the classroom = big girl shoes.  Boo.
