thrifted cherry skirt:: tank- present :: thrifted red cardigan:: urban outfitters flatforms
Sorry to be MIA here, but I've been busy celebrating my husband B's successfully defending his thesis! If you follow me on facebook, twittter, or instagram, you'll already know that his defense was scheduled for Wednesday, then one of his committee members totally blanked and "forgot" to attend. I can rant about that, but it would be a waste of time. In any case, B got them to reschedule really quickly for Thursday morning (that was a miracle), and we've been celebrating since he got done. I suspect the celebrations will hold until the weekend, which you may think is overkill, but when you've spent a chunk of your life working towards one goal, a few days of festivities don't even come close to making up for the sleepless nights, the frustration, and all the other crap he's endured for years.
What's next for him? For us? We honestly have no idea. Job hunting is tough work, as many of you know. But job hunting for people with grad degrees is ridiculously insane. I should know. We're keeping our chins up though and forging on. Good vibes and thought are always appreciated, and if you know anyone hiring Biochemists and English majors, let me know :)
But on to the outfit. I've been wanting to wear this skirt because I've only worn it once before. With the temperatures back to freezing, a maxi is perfect for keeping my legs warm and not having to wear pants. Best argument for a maxi, methinks. This top has been sitting in my closet for a long time (since Christmas, in fact. Which year? I have no idea) My mom sent it to me as a present, and it's too short for me to wear untucked, but I do love the ruffly bits in the front too much to give it away. At first I thought wearing the texture and the print would be too much, but it turns out, it gives the look more depth, if that makes any sense. And now, I have a renewed appreciation for this once neglected top.
I've rambled on! I hope you have a lovely margarita-filled weekend planned. I am sure mine will be :)
