The blues

So I had all these awesome posts planned in my head, and all these pictures I was going to take, but remember what they say about the best-laid plans? I haven't seen my advisor since Friday (we're due for a meeting tomorrow, after which I'll pick up my husband from the airport) and I've been working like a maniac. Also, my computer decided to go nuts. I went to Hamburg's Alstertal Einkaufszentrum to search out the city's Apple Store and I will be taking it in for a software upgrade tomorrow. Oof. Let's pray that my computer doesn't explode while I'm in Greece. Or, y'know, at all.

Because I wasn't planning to leave my apartment yesterday at all after my run, my trip to the Apple Store was pretty haphazard, outfit-wise. But since I had to go back today, for my Genius Bar appointment and the weather continues to be miraculously warm, I decided to kick it up a notch. Here is the dress I wore, a dress that has become a summer staple for me since I bought it in 2007:

Remember how my favorite pants are seersucker? Well, so is this dress. In the summer, there's nothing I like more than tying on a halter dress, slapping on some sandals, and calling it a day. It's what I did here. You will also note my silly Cretan sandals. As I said, I'm a big fan of this dress. I first wore it the day after I got engaged, almost three years ago, and also on my 26th birthday in Greece:

Look how young and innocent I looked three years ago! Alas, the dress doesn't fit me as well as it did then, because when I work out, I don't get supple and slim, but rather Hulk-like. And now my rib cage and chest has expanded. Awesome. Anyway, see? Same dress, three years.

In other news, I went shopping again. I promised myself I wouldn't buy anything this summer, in an attempt to save money, but after a quick scope-out of the Altertal Einkaufszentrum's H&M, I fell in love with a tank. And then I went back to buy it today.

Um, here it is:

Why, yes, that is a tank top with Lady Gaga's face on it. Why? I think this will look really good with my new leggings. Too bad they're in the US. I'm gonna look like such a graduate student in the fall!

Anyway, that's all for now. Tomorrow is gonna be a big day, academically, romantically, and - hopefully - technologically. Wish me luck so that I no longer go crazy with my computer!!

Seersucker dress: H&M
Silver sandals: some store in Crete, remixed
