A Year In Review

Hi Friends! It's been quite a while since I've checked in. Well, it's official. I have survived my first semester of law school and it was certainly quite a ride. Thinking back to where I was 12 months ago, my life was incredibly different and I honestly would have never predicted being in Louisiana. 

I've made some amazing new friends this year, worked harder than I ever could have imagined, started over in a new city, learned a ton, and soaked up life in DC. 

Here are y'all's favorite posts from each month this year. 

Here's to hoping next year is even better! Happy New Year!

Insta-Life Law School So Far

Hey y'all! So, the initial law school terror I've been experiencing over the last few weeks has started to fade, and dare I say it? I'm actually feeling confident about the work/studying I've been doing. I've officially been a NOLA resident for a month now, and man is it crazy how much your life can change in such a short amount of time! Here's a little peak c/o my instagram of my life in NOLA so far. 

After the first week of getting settled, I've pretty much spent 85% of my waking hours somehow related to school. Now I will say, I expected law school to be tough. The subject, the stress, the long hours, the competition, and the constant anxiety about looking like an idiot. Well, two weeks into class and I have to say so far law school hasn't been too bad. If you're not familiar law professors use the Socratic Method to teach you. Essentially they cold call on you and try to make you look like an unprepared idiot. Fun right? This aspect of law school definitely had me the most nervous. Well. I got cold called. At the very beginning of my very first torts class. Honestly, I think that was the scariest moment of my life. My mind went completely blank and my stomach was instantly in my throat. I completely butchered the ruling of the case, which is kind of the point of reading cases, but you know what? I lived. And I realized that it's really not all that bad. And, yeah there are going to be plenty of stress filled days, but there's also plenty of time (for now at least) to have some down time. So yay for that! Now for y'all, hopefully that means you'll actually see me around this here blog more than I thought! And I'll actually have time to read y'alls blogs too!

July Recap

I can't believe July is really over! Summer is quickly coming to a close and I'm only 48 hours away from a major move! July was a great last month in DC, jam packed with good food (probably too much but oh so worth it), good friends and lots of packing. 
pool time on the roof / pretty plants 
obsessing over purple nails / amazing roasted chicken pizza with cherries
best bloody marys in NOLA / an array of pretty summer scarves
LOTD's / coffee
blogger brunch salads / ham and cheese croissants
the open road / and lots and lots of lavender

How was your July?

Listening to CNN's nonstop coverage of the George Zimmerman trial. I'm so ready for this trial to be over. Anyone else?

Loving that it's Thursday already! This week has flown by! And after this I only have 3 weeks of work left!

Drinking iced coffee. It's too darn hot for regular

Reading an Introduction to The Study and Practice of Law in a Nut Shell. Super exciting.

Wearing a cream v-neck sweater I picked up on super sale from the gap, my thrifted micro-pleat blue skirt and my favorite beige heels. Going for comfort today.

Thinking that I can't wait for the exciting changes to come in the next few weeks.

Feeling excited, optimistic and a little anxious.

Wondering what I should have for lunch. I'm thinking a trip to Taylor's is in order

Realizing that I only have 23 days left in DC! Where is the time going!!!

Happy Thursday y'all!

Life Lately and a Giveaway!

This is what life has looked like lately according to instagram.

Summer weather has officially made it's way to Washington (though I'm thankful it took it's sweet time). I've been celebrating with lots of time wandering around the hill, watching baseball games, and partaking in a few yummy cocktails.

Even more baseball, late nights with good friends, a few pretty flowers and some new beauty goodies to sample c/o Birchbox and Simple Skincare.

Finally shopping for some baubles at South Moon Under, pretty flowers in my front yard, Cheese Shop deliciousness in Williamsburg, and taking in the breathtaking views of the tidal basin while I still can!

Now, the lovely people over at Shabby Apple would like to give one of you fabulous ladies a $50 giftcard! Great way to start the week, right? If you don't already know, Shabby Apple is an online dress boutique that specializes in vintage and retro dresses.  Click Here: vintage dresses to see the selection!
