State of the Blog: Halfway There

May 1, 2015

One year ago, I left D.C. to chase my dreams on the other side of the country.  I can’t believe that I’m halfway done with law school.  At least I will be after I spend seven out of the next 12 hours taking two constitutional law finals.  (Deep breaths.)

The blog will be back next week, and we’ll have two blissful school-free weeks to enjoy together.  Think Two Ways and Work Wednesdays posts, yay!

Good luck to my fellow finals-week warriors.  I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing weekend.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go clean green highlighter off of my fingernails.

    Hi Belle! Good luck with finals! I left professional fundraising last year to take on an advanced one-year law degree in Ireland and had Jurisprudence today after Property Law on Monday and Company Law on Wednesday! With another four exams left, I feel your pain! The pay-off will be worth it though!

    You go girl. It will be hell to go through it, but coming out the other side feels soooo good!

    Go Belle! Kick some finals butt!

    Good luck on your finals!

    Good luck Belle!

    Congrats! My brother graduated from UPenn last year and I remember each year how much pressure there was around finals time – not that there was a lack of it the rest of the year!

    Good luck!

    Good luck!

    I have to say, I am mildly entertained that this is the first post on your site to greet me in my first visit. I am a WDC attorney, referred here for style guidance by another attorney….and you’ve left DC to become a lawyer. 😉 Great luck to you!!

    Good luck! Will be sending good thoughts your way!

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
