This outfit is actually from a couple weeks ago – the last day of my Bar review course. The day before, I had put absolutely no effort into my appearance and I was in a total funk all day. So the next day I wore this. I’ll be the first to admit I had absolutely no one to impress; all my fellow Bar-preppers were stressed and too worried about themselves to notice what I was wearing (I’m just assuming this based on the fact that I was stressed and didn’t notice what anyone else was wearing). But darn it if I didn’t feel a million times better about life.

However, now that we’re only a week out from exam time, please don’t ask me how I feel about life currently. K thanks.

You know what they say…when you find something you love, get it in two colors. I loved my olive parkline dress, so I waited for another sale and grabbed it in blue.

There’s always been a lot of blue in my closet, but until this month (when I got this dress and a pair of suede pumps), there was never much cobalt blue. And I think I know why. I grew up in North Carolina, and even though I don’t have much allegiance to my home state, I will be a UNC basketball fan for life. If you know anything about North Carolina or about college basketball, you know the UNC/Duke rivalry is EPIC. So naturally, my love for UNC is accompanied by a hatred for Duke. The point of this story if you don’t already know: Carolina blue is like a sky blue, and Duke blue is pretty much cobalt. So I think when I see cobalt I subconsciously associate it with Duke. But I decided recently I shouldn’t let a stupid sports team steal a perfectly beautiful color from me. And that’s the story of how I beat Duke.
