Awards and Dinner

I recently returned from 10 days out of town. I spent the first few days at the beach with my parents. Then I attended an immigration lawyers convention in the Washington D.C. suburbs. Finally, my boyfriend and I spent the 4th of July weekend in D.C. at the house of some friends.

These photos are from the last day of the convention. This is a three-quarter sleeve dress. The jacket is wool, fully-lined. It was 96 degrees outside. Yet, the convention center was cold enough for me to wear these clothes with tights, and I was still a bit on the cool side. Crazy!

A colleague from Chicago was honored at the convention for her contributions to immigration law. The awards ceremony ran long, but was surprisingly interesting and enjoyable. The honoree hosted a small celebratory dinner after the awards presentation.
