Post-Dissertation Celebration

I recently finished writing a book proposal for my dissertation (which I suppose is now actually my monograph because I spent all summer revising into one). Two weeks ago I actually submitted it to a press for consideration and then decided that warranted going out for a nice dinner and drinks. And this is what I wore.

dress: H&M / belt: H&M / necklace: the Bay / shoes: Steve Madden, thrifted / watch: Kenneth Cole / rings: H&M
