Feasting and Friends

My mint jeans made another appearance last week, this time for a lunch date. Combined with my neon nails, I'm hitting two summer trends with this one. Not that I'm counting.
I also plan to wear them on Monday for another lunch, this time a delicious Mexican feast in Edmonton’s bustling downtown with an old friend. Like me, my friend earned her PhD in the US (also in history of the early modern kind) but we did our MAs together at the good ol’ University of Alberta. Up until now we’ve always only ever reconnected at conferences so it will be a treat to meet again on our home turf and talk shop (we're the Unemployed Early Modernists and we're one bad ass gang).
