The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
On Thursday, a co-worker announced, “You have to wear green on Friday!” I asked why, because it wasn’t St. Patrick’s Day. She replied, “It’s a WORK RULE.”
Then, I was, like, “Heck, I don’t have any green clothes.” Then I remembered my thrifted Banana Republic skirt, my first real foray into color. (I know some of y’all are pro’bly thinkin’, “You didn’t have to buy that color.”)
I took reader Louise’s suggestion to pair it with a blue shirt, wore my new snake skin pumps, and the closest thing I have to a bib necklace, another item I would never have bought before reading style blogs.

I’m double-safe from pinching with the green beads in the necklace.
Addendum: This is what I’m REALLY wearing on our our day off, including no make-up. I try to give my face a break on the weekend, due to having adult acne, which is so bad I have a prescription for it. I really admire one of my fave style blogger’s, Elaine at Clothed Much, recent openness about her adult acne – but I wasn’t brave enough to give y’all a close up of mine! I wanted to show my support and empathy for her by commenting at her post, but I thought I might just end up depressing her, because I’m almost 50 and still struggling with it.
