Occasion: seriously professionalizing
You may also recall how strange it was to dress like a responsible adult for three days in a row. This past week only -- "only" -- had two such occasions, but Tuesday had three different events totaling 6.5 hours of my day which mandated professional attire. 6.5 hours! It's as if it's for real, now. (And what 6.5 hours they were! Lab with preggos, feeling their bellies and learning to do ultrasounds; interviewing applicants; and learning/performing actual pelvic exams, speculum and all, on an actual woman, who was a phenomenally patient and gracious teacher.)
Weird pose -- trying to show off all my little bits, and not look like a dork in the process. Success on the first, not so much on the second.

Coming up next, I've got a 10-day trip featuring four vastly different environs: a professional conference, relatively formal social events in Florida, Orlando's theme parks, and family time/Irish dance viewing in Boston. How will I piece together 10 consecutive days' worth of outfits for two or three different climates and fit it all into one suitcase? Truthfully, I have no idea -- so, tune in to find out!
