Hi! I'm in a very good mood today because I finally got some important details of my thesis ironed out and I finally, finally have an estimated ETA for the conclusion of the grad school phase of my life! This makes me very happy for many reasons, some of which you can probably guess if you've been a grad student. ;) I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I've got a really solid plan to accomplish it and I'm really excited for this glimpse of the "light at the end of the tunnel."
Here's a casual outfit that I wore a few weekends ago to see Beauty and the Beast. Belle is "my" princess and I've always related to her. My first memory of this movie is at one of my first sleepovers when I was about six, and I immediately knew that Belle was my kind of hero. I can so understand the feeling that you're meant for greater things but not knowing how to achieve them (and ending up spending a lot of time dreaming about achieving them). And growing up, I was always the "funny girl" (and by "funny" I mean "weird") who had "a dreamy, far-off look and her nose stuck in a book." I remember being baffled that someone so much like me could be the hero of a story. It's my second favorite Disney movie (favorite being The Lion King, but all Disney movies are my favorites), so I knew I had to see it in the theater again. My boyfriend is kind of awesome and not only took me to see it, but claims he enjoyed himself. Yeah, think I'll keep him.
Skirt: UO (for $5, sweet!)
Shoes: new favorites from Aerosoles
(Are you surprised that I chose Belle as my princess for the upcoming Disney Princess Half Marathon? Nope? I didn't think so.)
