Law Curve New York

// The Day After//

When I heard about yesterday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, I immediately was seized with confusion, terror and helplessness. Despite living in New York now, I grew up in Massachusetts just 20 minutes south of Boston. Being a “Bostonian” is part of who I am. I spent almost the entire day glued to the radio and TV to hear whatever I could about the tragedy, praying the death toll wouldn’t rise. 

It was strange to see such images of carnage against a background so familiar to me. I was lucky to not be directly effected by this event, yet I still feel so violated, so angry. Someone hurt people in the city I call home. Someone tried to terrorize us. In Boston. In my home. It makes no sense. 

I hope all my followers and their families from the Boston area are safe. I hope that the monster who did this is found and soon. 

But back to the (comparatively unimportant) purpose of this post. I just felt like if there was ever a day to rep my hometown, it was today.

I love that dirty water. Boston you’re my home. 

This is one of my go-to outfits. I love this tunic top and this black scarf with pink flowers is one of my all-time favorites.

Spring Break is over… trying to console myself. I could have used at least another week—- maybe 3. Oh well.

// First Nice Day!- Yesterday OOTD//

So I already posted today’s OOTD and I realized I had taken one yesterday and I completely forgot to post it! 

Sweater- Old Navy
Tank Top- Cotton On
Cami- Target
Jeans- Forever 21+
Flats- Macy’s
Necklace- Old Navy

I’ve never in my life worn ripped jeans, but I went to Forever 21+ the other day in search of new jeans and these were just so comfy I couldn’t resist. The jury is still out on whether I’ll be wearing these to class or not— I feel like they might be a little too dressed down for law school. 

Also! My pic from today didn’t show it as well, because it was curly, but I got a haircut! I’m really liking it! I haven’t had sidebangs in a few years so I’m enjoying the new look. 

// Easter OOTD//

I’m not religious- at all. In fact my Easter plans consist of going out for Cuban food with my best friend and her boyfriend (who are both Jewish) and then working on my appellate brief all night. No painting eggs or church for me! That being said I remember being so excited for Easter dresses all through my childhood and I couldn’t resist breaking out my first tights-less dress of the year on this bunniest of days ;)

// St. Patty’s Eve//

I just got back from some St. Patty’s Eve celebrations with my boyfriend and some friends. I meant to take an outfit picture before I left, but forgot, so I hope no one minds an after-shot. I had my hair down and curled, but as the night wore on I threw it up in a bun. 

Also. Please ignore this rachet face I’m making. This was the best outfit shot I had, despite the deer-in-the-headlights appearance.

I didn’t go all-out with the green, because it wasn’t actually St. Patrick’s Day, but I wanted to rep it a little. The outfit was comfortable and appropriate for pub crawling (I always pity girls teetering around in heels and tiny dresses as they go from place to place— I refuse to do that).

This is the boy and I out. He is so quintessentially Irish. It’s adorable. 

// The Law School Challenge//

Pretty much once a week I have a day where I have classes followed immediately by an event that requires me to be somewhat professional. I don’t have time to run back to my room to throw on my normal Business Attire Uniform (post forthcoming) but I need something that’s comfortable enough for class and the walk there. The nice thing is this has inspired me to put together new pairings I’ve never tried before and encouraged me to rethink my wardrobe a little bit. 

Blazer- Forever 21+
Dress- Pure Energy, Target
Tights- Assets for Target
Boots- Avenue
Necklace- Kohl’s

Pairing this beautiful print, jersey dress with a boyfriend blazer gives a very chic, tailored look to the outfit which I like. This dress is so versatile and comfortable, one of the few gems in the usually bleak Pure Energy line. The boots are heeled so they give the outfit that little step up it needs (heh pun.) 

// Class Day and Date Night//

Shirt: Old Navy
Tank: Target
Jeans: Forever 21+
Flats: Macy’s 

I had class this afternoon and then hung out with my boyfriend tonight so I wanted to wear something that looked good but was also comfortable. This fit the bill perfectly. 

I got all dressed up today just to get rained out on my walk to class. Oh well! Love this skirt I got for $12 clearance at Torrid about four years ago!
