22: Workin' On My Fitness

Sweater: Target | Shirt: Victoria's Secret | Skirt: J.Crew | Shoes: Sam Edelman Portney | Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: J.Crew | Earrings: Target | Monogram necklace: eBay

Tomorrow I have to drive three and a half hours for my bar fitness interview. 
Common questions: do you have to do pushups? Run laps? Is this like bootcamp? I can see how you'd think that, but no. IT'S BETTER. You get to drive all the gas out of your car to spend twenty minutes with a room full of strangers while they politely evaluate whether you're going to turn out to be a serial killer or some other PR disaster for the legal profession before they admit you to the bar.

(If you're reading this, bar examiners, the answer is no.)

I. am. so. psyched.
I hope you guys will forgive me for breaking my 30 for 30 tomorrow afternoon when I don my interview Batsuit. Duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh BAT GIRL! I usually wear all black when I'm seriously suiting up 1) because LC told me to, 2) because it's easy, and 3) because it reminds me of that time I tried to be a goth kid freshman year of high school but my parents wouldn't let me dye my hair or wear black lipstick so I cut up all my shirts and wore dog collars instead. Those were the days.

    1. Oh, I wore the heck out of the dog collar. My parents were so thrilled.

  4. Good luck with your interview, too funny about you h.s. style. When I wad a freshman I went through an awesome grunge phase, plaid shirts, doc martins and all.

    1. My goth phase came complete with safety pin earrings and... rap music? Let's just have a moment of silence and be grateful we both snapped out of it ;)

  5. I love this look and I also love your 30x30 challenge - I'm also trying to improve my remixing, but at the moment the weather just is a bit too difficult to make a 30x30 remix challenge, you never now if it's snowing or raining or quite warm for winter tomorrow...
    And good luck tomorrow!

    1. Our weather fluctuates a lot here, too - you don't have to count rain gear, heavy coats, rainboots, any of that. I think you should try it! But you have to let me know if you do so I can follow along.

  6. UGH I can't believe you have to be interviewed in person! The FL bar just did a really intense background check on all of us, but thankfully no in-person meeting.

    1. IT WAS SO RIDICULOUS. I mean it literally took less than 20 minutes and I had to drive seven hours round trip. One more super efficient mechanism of the law school/bar admission system.

  7. I love your pattern mixing! Good luck on your interview too. Florida doesn't do that except looking into every aspect of your life lol

    1. I feel like I should send them a Christmas card, they know so much about me. If my identity ever gets stolen I know where to look!!

    1. Thanks! It's so comfortable, but it's like an XL or something crazy. Target had a screwy sizing batch, I think.

  10. You.Go.Girl. I'm sure you will look fab, especially if you leave the dog collars at home;)

    1. Damn, maybe that's why they failed me... ;)

  11. I love reading the witty shit (can I say that on blogs? oops) you write. Seriously, I always giggle. Best of luck proving you aren't a nutso :D

    1. You sure as hell can on this blog! Hahaha. I try to project non-nutso in my day to day life, but for some reason it's much harder on paper

  12. Sam, this is such an unexected colour combo, but it looks really great. Sam, I will cross my fingers and I am more than convinced that you will kick the bar examniners asses :-)

    PS: Make sure not to tell them what you do to your fingers when you do those great patchwork blankets they might consider you as a serial finger killer, just saying ;-) hahahaha

    You go girl, believe in you! Viel Glück (good luck)

    1. OR maybe I should have slipped in a little "oh, you see this fingernail? YOU SHOULD SEE THE OTHER GUY." Though I think threatening your bar examiners is probably bad form.

      I need you to be my German tutor! I feel like I've learned more from you in a month than I learned in six years of French classes!

  13. You are stunning in that bun lady! Seriously - I love it sooo much! I hope everything is going ok with your fitness! **Sending happy thoughts**

    1. The verdict on the bun is still out, I feel like an alien with a Cinnabon glued on my head. Once we got past the examiners' impression that I had two DUIs (I was like, uh, sir... this is a subject I feel like a bit of an expert on, and I'm pretty sure I have zero DUIs...) everything went smashingly haha.
