Ringing It In

Belatedly, here’s what I wore this year to ring in the New Year with my very best pals, watching some awesome bands perform. I would have gotten these up sooner but my trip to DC for the annual American Historical Association’s conference threw me a bit behind schedule.

The conference itself was great – my travel there was an absolute nightmare of delayed and cancelled flights but I made it one piece and then had an enjoyable few days of reconnecting with academic colleagues and friends and visiting two of my very best friends from New Haven (and their adorable puppy) who now reside in DC. So, despite the travel problems, it was a wonderful trip!

dress: Zara / blazer: Zara / shoes: Steve Madden
