OOTD: Thesis defense get-up

ootd

N chose this get up for her thesis title defense. She prefers the color blue because it’s their group motif as it coincides with their production name, La Lune (The Moon). We bought this at the department store after we had this thesis poster printed.

She can pair the blouse and the skirt separately with her other clothes. We are starting to buy one piece at a time since she will be wearing a lot of corporate attire next school year as requirement in one of her subjects.

The weave ethnic-like (or is it geometric) design of the skirt has caught my attention. I’m always fascinated with intricate design in fabric.

She used an old pair of comfy flats for the event.

Retirement gift

Hubby may have completed his 30 years in service but he has not officially retired working for the same company. Because of his experience and dedication to his job, the management has decided to keep him as a consultant. And might be given another (hopefully) permanent job by a sister company. Although it’s not a tradition to us to give a retirement gift, I’m thinking of giving my husband a simple usb where he can store all his favorite songs or movies. This way he can have access to his fave music selection or movies he can watch during his spare time at the office.
