Going under the radar for awhile

This will be my last post for awhile. I have started studying for the bar exam in late July (and I hope you all are pulling for me to pass!) I will be under the radar until the beginning of August. 

This is what I wore on date night with DH to see Star Trek.  I of course love the colors in this outfit. I put it together in my mind during the depths of winter. The happiness factor is pretty dog gone high with this outfit. I feel PRETTY (cue the song!) 

I am wearing:
Sweater - Old Navy 
Cami - Old Navy (it's a beautiful shade of red-orange)
Jeans - Eddie Bauer bootcut 

Thanks for looking!

    Gorgeous!! Love you in these fresh brights with white. 

    Good luck on your studying. We will miss you like crazy. I hope you will pop in when you are able -- you will need occasional downtime, after all! I know you are going to ace that exam. 
  • Runcarla replied 9 years ago

    Do what you need to do, and pop in when you can. I wish you the very best with your preparations and your exam.

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Thank you Suz! I am so happy to have your support during this process.

    I will be popping in and commenting during my down time (I can't stay quiet when I see something lovely)! 
  • rae replied 9 years ago
    OMG, good luck! I will miss your sassy office outfits here. I am sure you will kick that exam's behind!
  • krishnidoux replied 9 years ago
    Pretty! And so you are. This outfit is so uplifting. And so you too. I am sad that I won't see you in the upcoming weeks but wish you all the luck for your studying and your exam. 
  • Eliza replied 9 years ago

    Great outfits. We'll be pulling for you all the way. Here's to August!

  • Sarah A replied 9 years ago
    Will be pulling for you! I guess I have better post my Day Vies & Shevia inspiration outfit (worn 2 weeks ago!) soon :)
  • Parsley replied 9 years ago
    Absolutely pulling for you on the bar exam!
    (ETA: I was proofreading my reply and realized that I had typed "bare exam" OOPS! :-O )
    I know exams like that are so stressful, but I have full confidence in you!

    Your stellar outfits will be missed, but I hope you'll be able to check in from time to time. You can only study so much before needing a little break every now and then!
  • Beth Ann replied 9 years ago
    Bar Exam?  Just one more opportunity to show your fabness!  We'll miss your frequent posts, but will be pulling for you!

    All the elements are simple, but the combined effect is perfection.  I needed this today.  I was just in my closet making like Marie Antoinette ---- "Nothing works, I'm so BORED."  Need to stop focusing on perfect items, and start thinking more holistically.

    Good luck!!

    Love the colours - YLF.

    Best of luck:)
  • Adelfa replied 9 years ago
    Wow, I know you will be working hard. DD went through that process in 2010 for the California bar so I have an idea of what it's like! All the best and *take really really good care of yourself* during the process.  Super important, hard to do because you think you need to study just that much more. Maintain your health and your sanity! I know you will have fab study outfits. Of course we will miss you but this is not a forever goodbye so we will look forward to seeing more of you again! Best wishes! Blessings! Every possible good thing! (DD lurks here so let me know if you want to get in touch for study/sanity tips.)
  • TraceyLiz65 replied 9 years ago
    Going to miss you, but am so happy for you and wish you the best of luck in your endeavor!  

    Love the color combo here!  What a great note to go out on! 
  • lyn* replied 9 years ago
    Best of luck with your examination and I hope you enjoy Star Trek! I hear it's quite good!

    I will miss your cheerful outfits and bright smile, and can't wait to see your "lawyer" looks!
  • Karie replied 9 years ago
    You feel pretty because you look pretty! The red-orange and blue look fantastic against the white of your jeans. 

    Good luck, I know you will pass the bar exam with flying colors (pun intended)!

  • dlb1960 replied 9 years ago

    Good luck in your endeavors. I will miss your posts. You dress so beautifully and I just love your infectious smile. I would love a little of your majesty! I'm guessing you are a tall lady and I'm such a shortie! Best wishes!!

  • Ingunn replied 9 years ago
    You know I love those colors on you. As always, you look beautiful and impeccably stylish. Good luck with studying - I will certainly miss you and hope to see you around occasionally. You will pass that exam with flying colors, no doubt about that!
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    You all are so supportive!  I will miss posting my outfits. To save time I'm sure I will be doing lots of recycling. I will be lurking because I will need inspiration. Time for creativity will be at a premium.  

    Adelfa - Thank you so much for the offer. If you've done the California bar you are my SHE-RO! I will definitely reach out if I start to fall apart.

    dlb1960- I just appear tall. I'm only 5'5". I wanted to be taller when I was a teen, but this is all I got. 
  • Angie replied 9 years ago
    KILLER beautiful :)

  • Thistle replied 9 years ago

    You look sensational! I will miss your gorgeous posts, and wish you luck on the exam!

  • DonnaF replied 9 years ago
    A People United Will Never Be Defeated.  I think I can say with confidence that those of us at YLF, The People, are behind you and support you.  Remember that as you study and slog through those three days.  You will KILL that exam!!!  [And yes, my formative years were during the '60s/'70s. :)  ]
  • JulieJohn replied 9 years ago
    Day, I will miss your outfits like crazy. Like this one - yowsa, it is super! Did you do that sidecar bun on purpose to be very futuristic for Star Trek? I love it!

    Best of luck on the bar, and I bet with your incredible mind you will leave it in the dust! Till later when you unleash your creative genius on us once again!
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    JulieJohn - I did not think about the side bun for Star Trek  but that's a great observation. I did it because I thought it was cute. 

    The movie is worth seeing. It's predictable but finding out the identity of the villain(s) is unexpected. It's probably fantastic in 3D but the fight scenes tend to drag out in 2D. I like the storyline but I think I'm a little odd because my favorite character is young Spock. 
  • Jaime replied 9 years ago
    I will miss your smashing outfits but best of luck studying and passing! Pop in when you can!
  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 9 years ago

  • Debbie replied 9 years ago
    Stunning outfit! Wishing you luck on the bar exam.
  • Kari replied 9 years ago
    You look absolutely gorgeous - stunning smile first of all that really catches our attention, and you also look as cheerful as the cheery colors that you are wearing.

    I wish you the best on your exam!

    I just saw the film today and really enjoyed it.  Good thing to do when you need to take a breather.
  • Mellllls replied 9 years ago
    great outfit!!  good luck on the bar!!!

    You are going out with a bang! And I'm sure you'll come back with an equally gorgeous one. Another stunning outfit from you. Best of luck with your studies. You'll be missed.

    You look stunning DV! I love the fab brights with your white jeans.
    I wish you lots of luck for your upcoming exams; and you will be missed round here.

  • rachylou replied 9 years ago
    Whoa! Smashing!

    Elle-power to you for your bar studying ;>
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Rachy-- only you would make a Legally Blonde reference :-D. I love it!
  • K. Period. replied 9 years ago
    Two things (well really, three): 
    1. Your outfit looks incredibly fab, as always! I am going to miss you on the forum, but boy, oh boy do I understand. I once told a friend who called me in early July: "Yes, I can talk to you. However, you have to understand, I am studying for the bar right now and I believe I am certifiably crazy. This conversation, therefore, can never be held against me."  Bar study is crazy stuff. 
    2. Don't you know that RED SHIRTS and Star Trek are a recipe for trouble! 
    3. Good luck on the bar.  It is unbelievably crazy making and challenging and terrifying. However, if you study hard, you should pass. It isn't life or death. And get ready. When you were just a law student, you were adorably and hard working and wonderful and everyone loved you. When you are a lawyer, not so much. You were a lion cub. Now you are becoming a lion.  ;)  Good luck! You have all of us rooting for you!  
  • Inge replied 9 years ago
    We'll miss you Day Vies. Wishing you lots of luck with studying and the bar exam!! You'll do fantastic!
  • T-Rex replied 9 years ago
    Good luck on the exam!
  • rholmes27 replied 9 years ago

    Good luck to you. I remember when I took the bar the day I signed in I just kept repeating to myself, " I can leave if I want." over & over. It seemed to help.

  • Jamie replied 9 years ago
    You are stunning in this outfit.  Best of luck with your studies, and any time you need a little boost, just pop on this outfit.  It's sure to bring in some sunshine - such a bright and happy outfit!
