Teal, Grey, Floral

Oh man you guys, I have been so busy this week. My bosses started picking a jury for a death penalty trial Monday and I stayed with them in court for 2 days. My job was to do little google background checks on all the potential jurors to see if anything popped up that would make us want/not want them as a juror. I also kept my computer with me to do some last minute research if an issue came up (and several did). On Thursday I had to spend the entire day at a seminar about professionalism. It's required that all new Florida lawyers go to this seminar within your first year after passing the bar, so it was mandatory. I found it utterly useless given that my law school made me take a class on ethics and professionalism AND I had to take the MPRE (an ethics exam similar to the bar exam). Let's just say I think I've learned everything I can possibly learn about ethics at this point. The only thing I found useful was that apparently the advertising rules for lawyers are now being applied to social media as well, so I guess I'll keep that in mind if I ever decide to make my firm a Facebook page, lol. While I was not paying attention at the seminar I started reading a book on my phone called Child 44 - it took me a while to get into it but I'm really liking it now. Anyway, here is what I wore to work today. I went to take pictures this morning and realized I misplaced my memory card, so iPhone photos will have to do until I find it! Hope everyone has a great weekend. My plan is to go to Plato's Closet and try to sell some ish I never wear, and then head to the outlets to try to buy a navy suit :)

  1. It's all about ethics, isn't it? We have to take an ethics course every year as part of our mandatory continuing legal education credits as well.

  2. Yea it really is - Florida also makes us get I think 5 hours of ethics credits every 3 years

  3. Hi, excuse me while I pin every outfit you've ever worn on your blog. I'm trying to get more creative with the looks I wear to work now that I'm stepping into a higher position at work (showing people houses... Wooooo), and you're probably going to be my number one go-to. Hope that's cool with you.

    Sorry to hear about all the stuff you've been going through! As a licensed real estate agent, I'm going to have to be taking a bunch of ethics credits every 3 years just to maintain my license. Super excited about it...


  4. You are one busy lady!! I love that you were reading a book during the useless conference!, haha! I would totally do that too! I love is look! Very professional and classy! I love the pop of color and pattern in the top!

  5. Great outfit. Love the colours and the fabulous bling!!!

  6. Gosh your job sounds so interesting. And I'm still lusting after all of your mix/match suits. I would LOVE to hear your tips on mixing and matching to still look really professional! I see it done wrong so often. And, most importantly, thanks for linking up!!!! :)

  7. thanks so much bri.. I'll have to think about what "tips" I might have, if any. A lot of it is just being rushed in the morning and throwing on whatever I find haha!

  9. Really like the printed top with the suit pieces, and the gold jewellery is a very nice touch. Love how professional your looks are while still seeming comfortable and suitable to wear for long days :)
