Yesterday JD was officially admitted to the New York State Bar. I am so proud of him. Though it may sound cliché, he is the best person I know. He is so kind, generous, dedicated, hardworking, I could go on and on. The ceremony was held in the gorgeous Appellate Division, First Department. I couldn't get over the ornate ceilings and chandeliers (you may have seen this snap of the lobby ceiling on instagram). Of course, I was not permitted to take photographs inside the court room, but the stained glass dome was breathtaking.

JD and I were under the impression that proper court attire was required for both the new lawyers and their guests, meaning a jacket and closed toed shoes. Apparently this was not the case, or people just ignored the little note at the bottom of the ticket. I'm the kind of girl that would rather be over dressed than under dressed, so I played it safe in a black and white Erin Fetherston dress, blazer, my favorite Joie flats, and my Alexa. JD joked on our walk to the subway that I looked like I could be going to work with him. Though I'm not exactly sure how "court appropriate" this outfit would be, I did fit right in with the crowd.

Happy Tuesday and thanks for reading!

  5. Congratulations! I always defend that it's quite better to be overdressed than the opposite!
