I was going to post this last night, but my internet started acting up:(
How's the FABruary Style Challenge going? Here's a hint... Monday theme: "Wear a Dress".
Hahahahahaha! I'm in sub-freezing western New York. Yeah... no dress! I did, however, grab this scarf because my sweater had creases down the front that I wanted to cover up:
I love the subtle colors in this... nice job, Mom! I decided to play off the subtle pink/purple color in the scarf:
I'm a bit sad... one of these earrings went MIA sometime during my workday. I was running around between courtrooms, so it's likely not going to be found. This color is a frequent-flyer in my wardrobe, so this loss leaves a gaping hole in my jewelry box.... Maybe I will convert the orphan earring into a pendant. Eventually.
I will take my comfort in my pretty barrette:
To finish the outfit:
While sitting in the courtroom, I noticed that the soles are coming unglued. Will Crazy Glue do the trick?
Tuesday theme: "Belt it Up". Spent in jammies, sick in bed.
Wednesday theme: "Jacket Up". Finally! Something I can do:
This teal/turquoise color is another frequent flyer in my wardrobe:
The filigree is so cute:
I got a little crazy, and went in a different direction with my barrette. I wanted to pick up the gold tones in the jewelry:
OK, this metal doesn't follow the gold theme... but I love the toe detail:
Thursday theme: "Red Lips". Not with this outfit. The way I tied the scarf only work with a buttoned jacket:
But I did try different eyeshadow!
The earrings don't match the scarf in all the colors, but I like the way they picked up the pink:
This scarf is lovely, but a but tricky. The knot kept slipping out! I'm going to have to study up on how to tie big square scarves, I didn't do all that great today. But it's so preeetty!
Here's the messy look I wore at my desk:
I hit the Fashion Bug close-out sale, and got these pants for a buck. I will take them to the tailor, as they are looking sloppy-big. After tailoring, perhaps they won't cover my go-to shoes:
I am a bit amused how many days in a row I styled outfits using the same jacket!

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.
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.
