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.

When I finally dragged my sorry self into the gym last night after work, I saw the greeting to the weights area:

I must be a very, very squeaky-clean girl!

I actually had a Drug Court discharge hearing today. These are usually such a colossal waste of time that the clients skip it and just accept their fate. When the Drug Court Team has had it with you… you're going away for awhile.

Because it's cold in the morning, then warms up… along with my need for a blazer for court the hearing and other in-court appearances today, I went with a sleeveless top and a warmer jacket. A closer look for color and texture:

I don't think I've posted these pretties yet. They were a last-second inspiration to go with the leafy print in the top and the gold on the necklace:

Why does my hair look especially dorky today? I'm going in for a color this evening, and I didn't want to put a bunch of product in my hair right after using a clarifying shampoo… I'm paying for the dye job, and I want it to absorb well! I have the bangs combed out so I can have them trimmed. I think I would like them a little thicker, too…. So a flower for today:

Wearing shoes again:

I'm supposed to go to Tai Ji before the salon tonight… will I make it? Tune in tomorrow and find out!

  1. Love the bling. The jacket is terrific with the print.

    Don't we exercise FOR chocolate? No?

  2. Love that saying! Although the experts now say a bit of dark chocolate every day is good for you.
    Those are lovely earrings! I like your outfit too. The jacket is such a pretty color.

  3. I with Lynne and Debbi on this....chocolate is our reward...
    Love those pretty earrings, they're so delicate.
    This is a good outfit for you; the jacket does a nice job of balancing top and bottom. I should wear more jackets. I love the way they look but they feel so constricting to me. Teal is another nice color for you too.

  4. Wonderful earrings. Your jewelry is always attractive.

  5. i'm squeaky clean, too!! lol. yes, we DO want that dye to stick! they say not to wash your hair for two days, but i try to go as much as three days if i can!


    1. I've only ever been told 24 hours… I'm going to see if I can hold out until Friday morning.
