One of the guys I was teaching with pointed out that I looked like Megara from the Disney version of Hercules in this outfit.  I will assume that was a compliment and report it as such.

J Crew cardigan and dress, Jack Rogers sandals

For reference--Meg was more comfortable with her upper arms, apparently.
I'm finished and at home now--about to head off for a few days at the beach before real life calls again.

Here's my whole lab  together--we had a fun month!  

Team that made it to the quarters, plus me and one of my co-lab-leaders

Casual Land Yachting

You can take the girls out of the East Coast but you can't take the East Coast prepster boating enthusiasm out of the girls.

Summering With My Medium-Me

Obviously Corinne is my mini-me forever but I'm spending the summer at debate camp again and have found a younger personality twin.  Here we are just returning from Sunday brunch.

Me: Kate Spade Dress, Aerosoles Shoes  Maddie: Gap Top/Shorts

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


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

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?
