30 for 30 | 23 & 24: All Work, No Play

Sweater: F21 | Skirt: INC | Flats: Ivanka Trump Annulia | Earrings: F21 | Ring: F21

I miss my internship this semester.
By "this semester" I mean it's been less than a month and I'm dying over here.

To me, class is work. Class kind of sucks. My internship, going to work, that stuff is fun. In class, I read about cases that happened a hundred years ago. Important, sure. But at work I get to see cases that are happening now. They might not ever make it to the Supreme Court or involve any highbrow philosophical issues, but they're real and they're interesting and they're fun.

So here are two outfits I didn't wear this semester because I wasn't going to work, and the temperature was too damn cold to wear them to class for schnitz and giggles. And when I fly south for the winter/the rest of my life, I'm going to flaunt bare legs in 40 degree lows and gripe to my grandchildren about how spoiled they are when they say it's cold.

"You think this is cold? When I was in college an icestorm hit that was so bad I lost power for six and a half days and had to take showers in my 35 degree house uphill both ways in the snow."*

  1. I really like the first look, it's like comfy-chic. I'm officially coining that term, BTW. :) bummer you have to sit in class, hopefully you'll feel like that parted paired off when your a high power, high-paid attorney. :)

  2. Digging the neutral and winter white in the first outfit - glitter flats, yay! and the stripe down the front of your skirt in 24 is so fun. I'm so jealous that you'll be kissing the cold weather behind soon! And by kissing, I obviously mean giving it the middle finger and not looking back.

  5. i LOVE the first outfit so much. apparently a chunky sweater is the perfect way to style a snake skin pencil skirt and now i've added both to my wishlist. the statement ring and sparkle shoes are both simple but really make the outfit.

    come to texas now! we're having 80* weather this week.

  11. I really love those flats every time you wear them. You pull off pointy toe so well and look classy and such. I have such a hard time finding ones that work for me without making me look like a witch.
