30 x 30 Day 5: Eggplant, Mustard, & Animal

I added my new J. Crew Schoolboy blazer in purple to my 30 x 30 partly because I obviously wanted to wear my brand new blazer, but also because I wanted to take some risks and have a little more fun with my work outfits. Purple = fun, didn't you know? But in all seriousness, I was so nervous that I'd be called to go to court today that I packed my brown tweed suit and put it on a hanger in my car. You know, just in case. Thankfully, I was able to sport my purple ensemble all day without changing into the suit.
In other random news, have you heard any good lawyer jokes lately? I never understood them growing up. Now, I realize they pretty much all make fun of the fact that lawyers are supposedly liars and crooks, haha. So far, I haven't felt like I've been lying at all - let me say that from the beginning. Lawyering (yep that's not a real word) is often about framing the facts in a way that's helpful to you. I really look forward to putting my spin on things. It's probably my favorite thing to do second to going to court. What's your favorite thing that you do at your job? How do you take risks with your work wardrobe?

  1. I love the purple and yellow combo! I also saw you were picked for links a la mode next week, so cool!

  2. I'm wearing purple and mustard today too!! You won't get to see it until Monday, but I love that we're dressed similarly! I did stripes instead of animal, but I think I like the animal print better!

  3. Can't wait to see your outfit - I have to get more ideas on how to wear purple for this 30x30!

  4. I love the eggplant and mustard combo - definitely puts a fun spin on business attire. :)

  5. I love this combo! The schoolboy looks great with that mustard, and that skirt has such an interesting pattern. Plus your legs look fab.

    whoa, sorry about all the creepy compliments lately but seriously, you look great :)
