Easy and a little bit fifties. A perfect outfit for hanging laundry on the clothesline, no?

I was happy with it - I felt pretty and I was very comfortable - but this is not my proudest outfit.
It's been a long road and a lot of work, and last Saturday morning I put on a (what I might otherwise consider dopey) cap and gown with a great sense of accomplishment. It's not flattering - kind of shapeless sack, actually - but it made me feel just as confident as my most put-together work ensemble.
This was mostly due to my sweet-ass hood:
Being a master is awesome.
Thanks everyone for bearing with me during my absence, and thank you to my mom and sis for whisking me away for wonderful graduation travels!
My legs are strong and healthy. They carry me across the ice, up hills, and across dance floors with style and aplomb. As I've been training for a 10K these past few weeks, I've been especially glad to feel my legs powering me through the miles.
Plus, they look hot in knee-length skirts.
So legs, I salute you (and knees, please hang in there!).

Appropriately grad student-y, no?
It is also the first day of Academichic's "Dress Your Best" week, in which we dress to accentuate the parts of our bodies we like. Side note: I am SO SO SO excited that this blog is mentioned on Academichic, even if it's only as part of a long list. You guys know how I feel about Academichic. Eee!
To begin "Dress Your Best", we are supposed to make a list of five things we like about our bodies. Here's mine:
1. My eyes. One's a little greener than the other, which I get from my grandmother.
2. My collarbones/upper back. I just think clavicles are pretty.
3. My triceps. They've always been well-defined - softball? Skating? Yoga? Who knows?
4. My calves. That's definitely from running.
5. My feet. I have cute feet.
Today I wore shades of blue/green and purple, to bring out the green in my eyes.
What are your top five? I'd love to know! :)
