The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Or as close to neon as I own, or dare to wear. Do you know what neon green or yellow do to this middle-aged style blogger’s kind of pasty olive complexion? Think walking zombie, and not one of the better-looking ones. (I’m still participating in Megan and Keely’s “Fashion Challenge: This or That Trends”.)
Also no new clothes were killed to produce this post. I’m trying to dig deep in my closet and wear the old stuff I already own (or donate it), and also the old stuff I took home from my blogger meet up with Megan Mae Daily, like the red belt and nude pumps.
This will be a largely pictorial post, as for some reason, my body is telling me that 7:30 p.m. would make a nice Tuesday night bedtime. Very nice.
P.S. I got the idea to wear my belt and cardigan like this from Sunday Target circulars. True story.
who scored this terrific black and white striped H&M dress from my
blogger swap with Megan. Helen, a former paralegal for eight years, is
now a brilliant immigration and criminal attorney, and is the tiniest
adult human (I knew I’d need to clarify that) friend I have. She also
has a killer shoe collection. For a really cool write-up about Helen’s work, see this terrific article Nicole Black wrote about her for The Xemplar, “Fighting for the Underdog”. Helen is one of many attorneys I know who make a positive difference in their clients’ lives every day.
When I spotted my co-worker and fellow paralegal, Shannon Whitt, wearing this beautiful draped blouse in black and white, I photo-jacked her to stand beside Helen. Trust me, my co-workers know what a brandished Nikon means.
Got any neon in your work wardrobe?
