The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Why isn’t this post entitled “Paralegal Career Dressing”? Well, the pictures are from last Friday, when the office closed at noon. My outfit might be a little too casual for most conservative offices even on a Blue Jeans Friday, but I want to share the last refashion of a very bleh blouse, using Megan’s beautiful button flowers. Also, Patti at Not Yet Dead Style, here’s my visible outfit more for play than work!
|Gap clearance purchase mistake last year. Those pleats do not drape well.|
|OMG! Look what those magic button flowers did for this blouse! Saks Fifth Avenue flats (on sale at Saks Outlet); Nine West American Vintage jeans (Steinmart last year); Silver skinny belt (Ross, I think)|
Even though our office was closed today, I did go in to get ready for a Social Security hearing later this week, working mostly on the one-page hearing summary to submit to the Administrative Law Judge. (Which one? Dunno. SSA doesn’t disclose the identity of the judge in advance of the hearing anymore.) While I do feel that many of you are my virtual besties, I’m not ready to share photos of me wearing no make-up and flip-flops (the attorney who hates jeans in the office the most was the only other person there, and he had on shorts!)
But the most important aspect of this day is not whether we got the day off and a long weekend. It’s to remember those that have died serving our country. PBS is honoring the fallen by providing a Virtual Wall of Remembrance at http://www.pbs.org/memorialdayconcert/stories/submit. Audience members can submit a remembrance, eulogy, prayer, or poem during the “National Memorial Day Concert.”
|I got so many compliments on the flowers, and one person asked for Megan’s blog site!|
How did you spend your Memorial Day weekend?
