The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Today, I drove to the North Carolina Bar Association Center in Cary to present the one hour of ethics credit after lunch. This is the third year in a row that the Paralegal Division’s Intellectual Property Institute has invited me to present, and as always, they had a great turnout and fun attendees (meaning they laughed at the right places 🙂
The title of my presentation? “Navigating the Ethical Waters of Social Media.” We did have some fun, since there’s never a shortage of Social Media Gone Bad stories about parties in civil and criminal cases, jurors, and of course, lawyers.
Since I was a speaker, I wanted to wear a suit, but I didn’t want to go the traditional blue pin-stripe route. (Thanks to style-blogging, I’m no longer worried if the top and bottom parts of a suit match.) I was also thankful for my lacy Loft tights, as the promised 70 degree day didn’t materialize.
What did materialize was one hell of a thunderstorm. Dear Hubby says there was also one in the wee hours of this morning, sparking another performance of The Cairn’s Thunder Dog act in our actual bed, and he (the dog) barked like crazy and even jumped on me repeatedly, but I never woke up. I am that tired after the long week in the hospital.
|If you wear sequins to a daytime legal professional gathering, you will liven up your presentation considerably. Loft jacket (Outlet); Loft skirt (Outlet); Andrea Jovine Studio blouse (Ross last year); Yoki pumps (Hamricks); Accessories (see below)|
|Uh, too late, wet bench. Tights are pretty floral in person.|
|Leather snap bracelet (Charleston Market vendor); Earrings (from a Jada’s Jewel’s necklace set); Bangle watch (Jewel Box); Glass ring (Family heirloom)|
I think I need a sequined top for work. Do you have a sequined top for the office?
