The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Those of you that work for attorneys know what you have to do at work in order to get a few days off, and it ain’t pretty. But derrieres sounds much more, er, professional and fancy than the actual slang, and I don’t want y’all to think I don’t love my job.
I do, but I sure wish the Paralegal Fairy would visit when I’m away from the office. It took me four hours this morning to answer emails and return calls, and that was just from being out of the office on Friday. Then we had a two-hour team meeting, and then I had two hours left to do a week’s worth of work. I need a candy bar.
I am dead tired, but not too tired to be excited about my Adventure, which starts now, with Megan of Megan Mae Daily. If Practical Paralegalism is quiet the rest of the week, don’t worry. There will be way too many pictures posted upon my return. (Or if you miss me, you can follow my random Twitter feed, @ExpertParalegal.)
Today I’m wearing my most fave thrifted dress evah (until my next most fave thrifted dress evah). I’ve always considered myself kind of knowledgeable about Target fashions for many years, since the Merona and Mossimo brands are well within a legal support staffer’s teeny clothing budget, but I do not recall ever seeing this Merona dress, so have no idea what year it’s from. (I probably didn’t notice it during the three decades a dress had to be black for me to even consider dumping it in a grocery cart.)
|Look, I put my feet on backwards this morning! Merona dress (thrifted); Coral skinny belt (Target this year and worn practically every day); Breva ice blue pumps (John Fluevog and worn practically every day, but hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it); MMD button flower (Megan Mae Daily); Bracelets (assorted); Earrings (Steinmart I think)|
Today, a woman yelled at me from her car in the CVS parking lot, “I love your robin’s egg blue shoes!” I’m seriously considering buying this same pair in taupe, and not just because they’re the only Vogs I can afford if I save up for months. I’ve never had a single pair of comfy shoes complimented so frequently.

Does anyone remember this dress from Target? How could I miss something so awesome?
