daily work outfits

Sometimes I either don't have time to take nice photos or I don't feel an outfit is worthy of being posted on the blog. Here is a compilation of outfits I've worn to work in the past 2 weeks that don't deserve individual posts but I thought I'd share together.
This week I had my first 14-hour work day, and I surprisingly found it was one of the days that went by the quickest. I covered my boss's court calendar in the morning while he was away, I wrote objections to a pre-sentence investigation report (a PSI is basically an entire history of your criminal life plus your family life and it helps federal judges (not sure if state judges can get PSI's also?) when they choose your sentence), did a ton of research, and then finished the day by going to visit inmates at a jail 20 miles away - I didn't get home until 10 pm.

(This day my boss forgot to tell me I had to go to court for him until after I already arrived at my office, so I had to go to court in JEANS! I was seriously so embarrassed but at least I was wearing my darkest jeans I own that day. You should have seen me - I was using the files to cover as much of my legs as possible. Good times. I brought an extra pair of dress pants to work to keep in my desk the next day so this will never happen again.)

  3. I really REALLY like the blazer + dress combo. I wonder if I could get away with that for a school interview...

  4. If you mean the black and grey combo, I'd say no. Med school interviews are probably a lot like job interviews and its best to play it safe and wear a matching suit. If you meant the black on black dress/blazer I'd say yes but I wouldn't roll the sleeves like I did. Congrats on your interviews and good luck!!

  5. ah, sorry, I should have been clear. I did mean the black dress/black blazer combo :) I either need to buy a whole new suit (I really hate my current one and the pants are too short so I can only wear flats) or buy a blazer and heels so I have a professional dress and I feel I would get a lot more use out of those pieces.

  6. I love this! I should start doing this so that I can show the outfits that don't make the full photo-shoot cut too! Love all these blazers - I need to wear the 4 I have more often so that I feel okay spending money on even more!!
