For the record, the mascot of my university for both my B.A. and M.A. is the "Charger." Apparently I'm the worst "Charger" ever because all of my batteries consistently die. I am quite the daredevil when it comes to charging things because I want to squeak that extra 1% out of my electronics. I've just now let Fins talk me into charging my iPhone every night. If I hadn't, today's outfit would have existed for naught...because if a fashion blogger wears an outfit, but doesn't take a picture of it, did it really exist? I know that these pictures aren't the best quality, but it was the best I could do while my camera refueled. Sorry to punish you guys for my lack of electronic savoir faire.
Apparently, I'm terrible at washing my clothes, as well. I originally intended to wear my trouser jeans with the top half of this outfit, but I wore them to work this past week for a t-shirt and jeans day at school and neglected to clean them. I think the outfit turned out rather well with the skinnies, but I fully intend to wear the top half of this outfit again with a variety of pants/skirts/shoes combinations in the future.
I wore this out to a family dinner to celebrate Fins's parents' 37th anniversary. I think it's pretty amazing that both sets of our parents have only been married to each other without ever being divorced. We are very lucky that all four of them are in our lives on a regular basis...and we're even more lucky to have such great examples of solid marriages to follow. I am so energized by the thought that Fins and I have so much to look forward to in our lives together -- I truly hope we're able to follow the examples set for us.
Okay, enough mushy stuff for now. Have a great President's Day, everyone! I'm going to visit some of the sales with my sister--wish me luck and determination not to break my shopping ban!
(My intentions are strong, but my resolve may not be...)
