The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
The only reason I’m putting up a post this late on a Friday is to complete Megan and Keely’s Fashion Challenge: This or That Trends during the same week. ‘Cause I like to finish what I start, and I’m
a lot ever so slightly OCD.
I spent most of the day at the North Carolina Bar Association Paralegal Division Career Fair, meeting many terrific paralegals, students, and legal professionals. Once I started grabbing people for career style pics, my fellow Paralegal Division Council member, Joy Belk, started acting as my hawker, repeatedly grabbing one of the many fabulously turned-out people in the crowd, and styling them for a quick picture. (By styling, I mean, removing those annoying name tags :P)
I thought a suit might be a good idea for a job fair when I woke up this morning, but people, I just couldn’t do it. You know I usually wear some version of a Business Nightgown on Fridays. I compromised with a pin-striped sheath dress. I know you’re thinking, “Black?” for a pastel post, but I really think I worked the theme; I really do. Do I get points for wearing a tie? How ’bout two ties?
Honestly, I do not know where that ridiculous pose came from, only that it was pre-Iced Vanilla Latte, and I promise not to do it again. I’m wearing my belt a little higher than usual, because the dress has an empire waistline.
I’m pretty sure I told eight million people where they can get a MMD obi belt. In fact, I even tweeted the link to be extra helpful.
|This is a blooper picture. Enough said. I look like I just said, “What the hell?” I probably did.|
Two funniest comments made directly to me: “You’re wearing those BLUE shoes again!” [more than once] Yep. I’m officially The Paralegal with Those Blue Shoes.
And, “OMG, I KNOW your voice from somewhere, where do I know you from? OMG, I listen to you all the time!” Yep, that would be the Paralegal Voice podcast at Legal Talk Network. (For my non-legal readers, we did a podcast featuring Erin Brockovich, the real one I accidentally met in person last year. Everybody will like that one.) I really do need to get LTN an updated picture like they’ve asked for repeatedly.
Oh, I was so stressed out by this entire week, that I hit the Tanger Outlet on the way home, and bought a new pair of sandals from Rack Room and several 50% off items at the Loft Outlet. Bad paralegal.
Have a great weekend, peeps. I will share all the great style pics from the career fair next week. Tired now, need pie.
