Can you tell I'm loving my new thrifted shoes? I wore them twice in one week! I was able to wear some fun outfits this week thanks to not having many scheduled days in court. Today, however, I have to go to juvenile court and maybe because the courtrooms are much smaller and more intimate, or maybe because most of the attorneys are younger/newer, there's less evidence of "style" there than in regular criminal court, and I'm more wary of even mixing and matching suit separates. Juvenile court is a whole different ball game. Every time I go there I feel like such an idiot - there is a whole separate set of court rules, they use different terminology, have different ways to conduct trials and different sentences/sanctions for kids than adults. I feel like I'm getting the hang of the adult court and then BAM I gotta go feel like a fool again because I have no idea what I'm doing in juvie! Oh well, wish me luck :)

Sunglasses: VersaceAnd a foundation primer update for anyone who cares! I've been using the Monistat Chafing Gel for about a week now. It literally feels like satin when you put it on your face, but I found that it seeped into my skin after a few hours rather than sits atop my skin like the Smashbox primer. Because the gel seeped into my skin, my makeup also seeped into my skin. Also, I found it not to be as hydrating as the Smashbox primer - I have extremely dry skin, and while nothing seems to control the dryness on my forehead no matter what i do, the Smashbox primer did control the dryness around my nose. The gel, however, did not control the dryness around my nose. I will continue to use the gel because I stupidly bought 3 bottles of the stuff because I'm stubborn about getting free shipping on Amazon, but I am in the market for a new primer! I still don't want to spend 40 dollars a tube on Smashbox though, so I will be taking some of the advice from the commenters on my previous post and I'll let you know the results once I get a chance to try another kind! But it will likely be a while before I try anything because now I've got 2.98 tubes of Monistat Chafing Gel to finish...
