DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Lost in the jungle

I'm posting Wednesday's outfit... er... officially Friday morning. I've been lost in a forest of paperwork, phone jockeying, and hearings, and didn't have time to get Thursday photos. So I will need to repeat the outfit soon, because I have questions.

Wednesday... ta da!:

I've never worn this top to work because I wasn't sure if the snake pattern was too risque. I think it can pass... especially because the jacket tones it down.

I've also never worn these two necklaces, hooked together, long like this. I don't normally like long necklaces- they bug me- but this wasn't distracting. I thought it looked interesting under the jacket.

A closer look at the goods:

The fasterers are so subtle I don't mind them showing.

Between the snakeskin and the wood, I figured I would continue a nature theme and go with stone earrings to complete the look:

Top: Mercer Street Studio
Jacket: Talbot's Petite
Pants: Lane Bryant
Necklace: gift from a friend
Earrings: art show in Kalamazoo, MI


  1. This is a great outfit, 'Doll! The snakeskin is perfect under the jacket (great texture), and I love the two necklaces connected together! What a great idea. This jacket is a great cut on you, too - fab!

  2. the close-up of the jacket and the sweater and the necklace together is GREAT! I don't know what the protocol might be in your office, but I could definitely wear this to campus. Beautiful.

  3. I think you can get away with wearing the snakeskin print to work. I didn't even realize it was snakeskin until I saw the photo without the jacket.

  4. I didn't think snakeskin was risque, but I understand what you mean with the snakeskin in full view! So chic under the jacket--like a secret. Paula

  5. I love the cut of this jacket! And the two necklaces together--brilliant! Love the snakeskin detailed shirt under the jacket. I say it's very appropriate and stylish!
