This was another one of my “networking” outfits, where I dressed like I was going to work so that I would blend in with the people I met with, who were (of course) wearing jeans.
I went kinda matchy matchy with the shoes, which isn’t usually my style. But when a dress already makes a big statement, I figure I don’t need to do a contrasting shoe. As long as I’m still living in the real world and not on Planet Fashun, this approach seems appropriate. But as you can see below, I can’t seem to NOT wear colorful accessories with this dress! Next time, I think I’ll wear it with a black leather jacket and black pumps.

Bright ideas: It’s the Real Life Remix…
You all know how to make a girl feel special – thanks for all the congratulations on yesterday’s post, and on Instagram and Twitter. It’s a crazy feeling being done with school! I’m not totally sure what to do with myself. Well, that’s not really true. I do know what to do: celebrate!
The first step of celebration was dinner at Olive Garden (gift card – woot!) yesterday after my last exam. We had grand plans to sit on the patio and enjoy the warmth, which is why I wore my Panama hat. But – get this – Olive Garden’s patio wasn’t even open yet! Way to ruin my special day, OG. They quickly made up for it with mini bottles of prosecco, though. 😉 By the way, I actually wore pretty much this same thing for my exam, and just added the shoes and accessories for dinner.
The celebrating continues, as this afternoon I’ll pick my parents up from the airport, and tomorrow is graduation, followed by a trip to Chicago. The blog will be quiet for a couple days while I enjoy some time off, but if you want to follow my Chi-town adventures, you can do so on Instagram. Because can you ever get tired of seeing pictures of the Bean? No, you cannot.
