Sometimes I need to dress like a grown-up. I do wish that I could parade around in tulle skirts and bows all the time, but the reality is that I would probably look rather silly. I had a meeting with the professor I will be assisting this coming semester so my goal was to look respectable. Yet, despite my love for cardigans and elbow patches, I promise to never turn into a frumpy academic. Speaking of academics - my bag, which my boyfriend picked out on his own to give me for Christmas from fredflare.com, is actually called the "nutmeg academy bag". It doesn't get more appropriate than that. Plus the brand is called "let them eat cake" which is totally adorable.
