Paralegal Career Dressing: Meanie Mouse

Paralegal Career Dressing: Meanie Mouse

Can you believe it? No one else at the law firm dressed up.

The Deets: Forever 21 sweater dress (GoodWill); Naturalizer boots (Ross Dress for Less); Peacock infinity scarf (Charlotte Russe clearance); you can see just a glimpse of my blue spider web earrings from Megan Mae

I went as The Dormouse Has a Day Job in a Law Office.

Only somehow the receptionist started calling me Meanie Mouse. After he poked me in the ribs and made me spill uncooked oatmeal on the kitchen floor. Which then exploded all over the microwave while cooking.

I do get mean when no one brings in any Halloween candy. On Halloween.

Oh, I guess I could have.

Here’s my best effort to look scary in this costume.

Gimme Halloween candy. Now. No, I will not brush my teeth.

Happy Halloween, y’all.

  1. You're totes adorb! We could have been a matched pair this Halloween. I'm glad you dressed up, hope you still managed to get some Halloween candy tonight!

  2. Awww! Glad to see that you dressed up! I love the ears, too cute! I was the only one who dressed up the past two years, but this year one co-worker dressed up, and another wore a Halloween sweater. I think it is cool when people dress up for work, it shows that you have a good personality 🙂

  3. Your outfit is fabulous with and without the ears!! I love the tights and boots!!! Like the others, I hope you got some candy eventually. Meanie Mouse? I really hope they said that in jest 🙂 I liked your picture at the end.

  4. I love this! That's the kind of costume I probably could have gotten away with at work! I want a sweater dress in the worst way for winter this year, yours is adorable!

  5. I bet the folks at the law office just love you!
    That is so adorable and so you!
    Next year a memo needs to go out a week before Halloween: BRING CANDY! I mean really the nerve!

  6. What Melanie said ^^

    I was thinking – nah, not scary – just sweeeeet! I met a friend for a drink and she had fantastic pumpkin earrings and a horned tiara on – the best.
