So This is Christmas [Break]





20121218-155744.jpgEveryone, I have an announcement: I AM HALFWAY DONE WITH LAW SCHOOL.

That’s right, 3 out of 6 semesters are done! I am feeling pretty good right now. I feel even better thinking about the wonderful month-long break that is now officially underway. I was already in the Christmas spirit (I found gift shopping a good way to clear my head in between studying for exams), but now I am extra jolly!

After turning in my last take-home exam, I freshened myself up (in a Beatles t-shirt I stole from Kristin’s closet – thanks, love) for dinner, drinks, and a movie.

In case you’re wondering, we saw Silver Linings Playbook. Some parts were kind of slow moving, but Bradley Cooper was seriously amazing. Who would have guessed? Overall it was very good. At my theater, an elderly couple walked out less than halfway through. And any movie that offends old people is good in my book.

P.S. This outfit was inspired by this photo I pinned awhile back.

I don’t have a real outfit post today because I spent all of yesterday in the car going from my home in Indianapolis all the way to my in-laws’ in Greenville, SC. Over 500 miles. It’s far. By the time we got here and had dinner, there was no light left for good pictures.

But I did take this quick photo in the best room of the in-laws’ house: the Beatles room. Yes, really. It’s fantastic. I thought the vintage photo effect would add some extra ambiance, although I wish I had been wearing something a little more 60s-ish.

This skirt is the best road trip garment ever because it’s made of this soft, stretchy material that doesn’t wrinkle, isn’t clingy, and doesn’t dig into my waist and make me have to pee even more than normal.

Stay tuned for more vacation posts the rest of the week! (with more pictures next time, I promise)
