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.

Hot Babe... or Cool Chick?

I went into work on Tuesday, dressed for fuzzy winter weather:

And I was too hot... that is so rare, it's pretty much unheard of. As is the step I took next:

That heavens I wore a jacket that could actually close! I had to button the bottom, even though the jacket is still a bit snug around the hips, because I didn't want my navel ring making an unscheduled appearance. But I did have some accessories I actually wanted to be visible to the public:

Finally! I have a decent photo of my cool new Christmas prezzie:

The one bit of color in the outfit, I also get a kick out of the echoing of the circles on the earrings:

I've had the jacket taken in, but 6 lbs. down, and it's looking big on me! My prim courtroom look for Wednesday:

Which only covered my rock-chick-ish in-office ensemble:

What stinks is that I was too warm yesterday, and told it was going to be warmer, so I deliberately dressed lighter. And was freezing! I just want winter to be over... I need to be in my kayak!

I noticed that I've been wearing my hematite accessories a lot lately:

I actually didn't realize that my nails matched my accessories until one of my girlfriends pointed it out.
