colorful friday

After wearing a lot of black and grey this week, I decided to try to have fun getting dressed this morning. I think most people would enjoy wearing jeans on Fridays, but with my generally casual wardrobe, I sometimes make "casual Friday" into "wear a skirt Friday" lol. I'm doing some subtle pattern mixing with the pinstripe blazer and animal print skirt, and I opted for a statement necklace in a turquoise color to almost match the intensity of the pool blue blouse I'm wearing below it. This might be my new favorite thing to do with necklaces - try to match them to my blouses. In non-outfit-related news, I was informed that my firm will be going forward with 2 murder trials in the next few months and I am SO EXCITED! I love this stuff, in case that wasn't obvious by the capital letters. I spent the day pouring over hundreds of pages of text messages. I feel kind of like I'm intruding when I read all the intimate details of people's lives, but it is so captivating! And plus, somebody's gotta do it.

  2. The necklace + shirt combo is wowzas. So exciting about the trials! Not about the actual, you know, someone died part (because I always feel guilty getting excited for trials, since if nothing bad ever happened we wouldn't need them) but the actual process is my fave. Get em girl!

  3. The "someone died" part has to be the worst part of our jobs (because you're in prosecution, right?), and the "crimes being committed" parts too. But I have almost desensitized myself to the crimes and try to focus on the right to a defense instead

  4. Exactly. And if providing the right to a defense happens to be really fun, so be it. :)
