ditching my office job to go clubbing

I’m refusing to acknowledge the fact that mock trial is over (we didn’t place at regionals), and that, by virtue of transferring this fall, I’ll never do it again. So I’m repurposing my suit jacket toward more flamboyant ends (and channeling Nadia and Arabelle in the process).

The crop top (in winter – look who’s walking on the [sad, stilted] wild side) balances out the sedate blazer. I really like the lines of this outfit. The stripe of belly complements the skirt’s wide waistband, and the vertical stripes complement them both.

The perfect accessory would be a big ol’ cup of coffee. Too bad I don’t touch the stuff. Caffeine does not agree with me.

I’m going to try to get a job as a high school mock trial coach when I move to New York. My high school didn’t have a team, but a lot of bigger schools do, and I’d like to think my mocking career doesn’t have to end when I transfer.

    I participated in one mock trial in High School, I was one of the defense lawyers… and I’m pretty sure my ‘client’ ended up being charged with murder and was sent away for life… opps! I really love this skirt on you though and the crop top is actually really perfect in this instance.

  2. I love this skirt! So cute. Also, you have the most adorable gap-tooth smile. I love it when people have unique smiles like that. It’s so pretty. πŸ™‚
