The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Well, not out loud anyway. I have a whopping case of laryngitis. Possibly strep. (I’m hoping my co-workers don’t read my blog much, because I did go into work this morning. I thought I felt better. Sorry, guys!) Please, please pray it’s not strep. I hate, hate taking antibiotics so much. The side effects are worse than the underlying condition 🙁
So when I looked at the pics I took this morning, I thought, “Sheesh, you look kinda sickly.” Which I am. But I can’t miss Not Dead Yet Style’s Visible Monday, because Patti celebrates real women every week, especially those of a certain age, who aren’t becoming less visible with age, but simply better with time.
I’m going to be frank. Sometimes I look at style blogs and think, “What am I doing here? I’m not young or photogenic, and I don’t have much of a clothes budget. Heck, I usually don’t have a photographer.” Then I think, “But I’m me, and we’re all unique, and we should celebrate the style that works for us, whatever our age, budget, body types, and style needs.” My style needs are to find reasonably priced clothes that meet my desire to be a little different, suit a middle-aged short person, and are appropriate for a work environment that alternates between uber buttoned-up court activities to a biz casual law firm.

|This is the goofy result you get when you try to get the watch and necklace in the same pic.|
|This wrap watch is perfect for skinny wrists.|
Does shopping for the perfect watch make anyone else a little crazy, or have you already found it? (If so, do spill the deets!)
