I just got back from spring break in Nashville and Alabama! My girlfriends and I couldn’t help but notice how the women were much more meticulous with their bright colors and makeup down south. That might explain why this traveling outfit looks so ~southern~ with its monogram necklace and tassel earrings—I was just trying to fit in, y’all.

Sweater: Primark, exact dupe here // Sunglasses: Romwe // Earrings: TJMaxx, dupe here from Baublebar // Necklace: Etsy // Coat: Banana Republic, exact same from ASOS here // Wallet: DSW, similar for $38 // Flats: Sam Edelman

This would be a perfect travel outfit for any location if you’re flying. One of my biggest blogging pet peeves (ok, I have plenty) is when bloggers try to pretend that they wear heels while flying. Bright flats are the way to go if you want to look polished and stay comfortable: Sam Edelman makes this pair in a bunch of colors and they are more comfortable than Tory Burch’s signature flats, in my opinion (and cheaper)!

One thing TSA did make me do was throw away a bunch of beauty products that I had foolishly kept in a small pocket of my suitcase. I totally forgot about the size regulations on liquids so I had to say goodbye to several key hair products. Maybe this is a chance to try some new hair items?

The Skirt You Need for Spring

I have worn this skirt so many times that I had to stop taking outfit pictures because it would be obvious that I was on a pink-skirt spree.

This is one of my favorite recent photo shoots; the wind was actually so strong that my camera tipped over. That’s one of the dangers of taking photos by yourself with a tripod. Weather conditions can frustrate or end a photo session. Yet can you blame me for taking the risk? It’s hard to get pictures of an outfit in motion with a timer, but the wind helped give my skirt some volume. Now time to purchase some insurance for my camera in case it does tip over one day..

My last theater show has finally wrapped up! I told you about the HLS production (“Harry Palsgraf: Fantastic Briefs and Where to Find Them”) a few posts ago, and now that it’s over, I’ve already started missing my actors and the thrill of performing.

Top: Romwe // Jeans: Express, dupe here for $22 // Boots: Vince Camuto

(Also, now that the show is over, I can spill the beans on the plot: In our show, several “evil” professors at HLS—we chose our fave professors for these roles—bring back the Dark Scholar to turn Harvard into a school of suffering. The hero of the story is Harry Palsgraf, an orphan who has never had anything good happen to him ever since he interned for the Clinton campaign and bought a Samsung Galaxy Note S7).

I honestly can’t believe that my time in drama is basically over: I’ve worked with the same tech crew and actors for nearly all three years, met new faces every year, and hopefully created a legacy of fun and laughter that will last long after I’m gone. Law school can be a burdensome and depressing time for a lot of students, so our show every year has tried to live up to Dumbledore’s quote: “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Last week, it was so snowy and icy that I could barely stand to take these pictures. But just yesterday, the temps went up to 60 degrees. The weather just can’t make up its mind. Either that or global warming has accelerated quickly within the last few days!

This week is a hectic whirl for me. Our law school’s Parody (annual musical theater show that we put on for the student body) is going live on Friday. Each year we write a unique script that makes fun of our professors and fellow classmates. This year’s theme is Harry Palsgraf: Fantastic Briefs and Where to Find Them.

Our cast LOVES the theme; we’ve divided up the cast into the four “houses” and are competing for “house points.” I’m actually the House Master for “Hufflepuff,” and since I’m also a director, I’ve been trying my darndest to award some sneaky extra points for my House whenever someone does a good job while acting. I never thought I’d be so competitive for a made-up competition, but since Harry Potter was such an influence on my childhood, I’m eager to see my House triumph.

Can’t wait to share pictures from the show! Thanks for reading.

The best thing that can be said about this time of year is that winter clothes are on sale, which is perfect if you live in the North (where winter lasts until April!)

Coat: Forever21, exact dupe here from Rosegal ($43) // Sweater: H&M (last season), similar here // Over-the-knee boots: Franco Sarto, similar here (on sale for $30) // Gloves: love this hot pink one from Etsy ($7)// Lipstick: Givenchy 302 “Hibiscus Exclusif”

This is also great news for me because I learned today the hard way that you shouldn’t wear leather over-the-knee boots on an icy, salty sidewalk. Not only did I nearly fall twice, but the heels of my boots are irreparably damaged. That’s what I get for trying to wear something more fashionable than duck boots :(

If you’re also on the hunt for some new leather boots to replace yours, Aldo’s leather OTK boots are now on sale, and these DSW ones are now $55! Conversely, if you’re someone who can’t wait for spring to get here, Forever 21 is giving 20% off their dresses through today. Happy shopping!
