For any normal person ‘The Weekend(!!!)’ entails long sleep ins, afternoon walks with the family dog, reading rubbish magazines and re-watching old family favourites, however as a third year law student with zero mid-week motivation, one too many part-time jobs and far more coffee-date plans than sense, it is unlikely that I will be spending any down time with the family pet* this weekend.
Between the lectures, tutorials, readings, workshops, recommended readings, 85-page-statutes, 45 recommended case studies, and all the other ridiculous expectations set by the Uni, it is safe to say that sometimes we law students, struggle to find the light at the end of this very long (5 years to be exact), very dark, soul-crushing tunnel we call, law school… Our only hope of any kind of happiness or sanity is to make the absolute most out of every single social event possible; I am talking birthdays, dinners, parties, gatherings…really any kind of social event where the red wine is flowing and the canapés are yummy. So you can imagine what happens each year when August rolls around and it is ‘Law Ball’ season… lets just say, all self-dignity gets left at the lectures.
With an abundance of options, I narrowed it down to Robb&Lulu’s St Tropez- Deepsea & Fire Dress. The light weight silk, bright colours and surprisingly handy pockets (I know, they really do think of everything) made it absolutely perfect for the occasion, or any occasion really (I plan to wear it again next weekend to a 21st…)
Hope everyone has a much more exciting weekend planned than I do,
Much love… Ciao x
