Plugging Away

Plugging away at the never-ending workload. Got this amazing top from Ann Taylor - adore the wrap effect, adore the color, adore it all. Its a bit low cut for work but as long as I kept an eye on it, it was all good.  Would look just as lovely with a pencil skirt as it does with dark denim.

Also new from Ann Taylor - these nude pumps which replaced the Charles David ones that I wore into the ground.

Thems the Breaks

OMG. I look tiiiiiired in this pic. Probably because, well, I was.  Took it at 8pm in my office after working approximately 11,000 hours; wasn't even going to take a pic but damnit, I loved the outfit!

These Zara shoes I just got (to replace my black pumps which literally disintegrated as I walked out of court on the day we got our jury verdict) are so adorable I can hardly stand it - am I the only one who is super obsessed with the d'orsay trend in shoes? However, they are also wildly uncomfortable so, blah.

Anyway. Going to trial for the second time in two months on Monday. I am exhausted beyond comprehension and am so tired of working. But, thems the breaks.

Rainy Monday, Cardigan as a Shirt

Its a dreary and rainy Monday, which i love, seeing as how rainy days are a rarity in SoCal.  I am celebrating with a bright orange cardigan worn as a shirt (apparently my favorite way to wear this cardigan).

Oh Well.

OK i hate this outfit. The top is frumpy, the skirt is wrinkled, and my efforts to reintroduce these shoes into my rotation has failed because I just decided I hate leopard print shoes again.  Oh well.

Catching Up.....

Well, trial is over. I seriously started to think it was never going to end. This was my first trial ever (!) and it was a doozy - four weeks long! We closed on Thursday, however, the jury won't deliberate until Tuesday since Friday the court is closed and Monday is a holiday. The anxiety!

In the meantime, I am playing catch up with the outfit posts - these four outfits made it to IG, but not the blog, so here you go....

I really was not very creative in the outfit department during trial; I just rotated through my suits - black, gray, navy, repeat.  I found myself wishing I had a nice suit dress or a pretty burgundy suit or something more creative.  I guess I need  to beef up that department of my closet.

(Also - sorry about the crappy hotel room selfies - omg.)

Anyway, here's the gray suit with black and white polka dots... ho-hum. The shoes are burgundy which makes it slightly more interesting but the pic doesn't capture them very well.

Was back in the office last Friday, and busted out this cute new floral skirt. Was pleased to discover it coordinated  so perfectly with this rose-colored cardigan. (Also, I am pretty sure I my entire wardrobe will be from LOFT at some point....)

At a certain point during this never-ending trial, I clearly lost creativity, and basically wore the same outfit as I did a few days prior....only this time, with vertical stripes -  HUGE diff! ;-)
