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.

Wednesday was day two of court on the same matter... billable hours-- yee haw!

My suit jackets aren't back from the tailor yet, so I went with my colored tweed jacket and the same ponte knit pants I wore the day before:

I don't know why it looks like these pants "grab" my knees in photos, they don't look that way in real life. Irritating. I really need to find a spot to put my good mirror, so I can bring it up from the basement! Perhaps that would help. Our place is small and weird, so it's going to take some doing....

It does crack me up that, as many accessories as I already own, I did not have the willpower to resist this beauty:

I've actually seen real lace necklaces at the farmer's market, but I didn't like that they were so lightweight. This one is metal, so it stays in place nicely.

Of course, I don't really like any of the earrings I already own with it. *sigh* I tried these hematite ones with it, but I was disappointed with the combination:

So I will have to keep my eyes peeled of something I like for the necklace. But at least I'm loving that I can finally wear these high heels... but they only seem to work with the new ponte knit pants, so I'm breaking them out as often as possible:

I wonder how some of my other shoes would look with those pants... hmmm....

  1. I am so sorry I have not been by in a while...I love your hair!! You look great in this outfit.

  2. You have the best accessories, LD. And this checked jacket is great - classic yet modern. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  3. A striking necklace!
    I have one single spot that I am able to take my own photos where I can set the camera at the right distance and angle. I'm really in awe of those folks that actually get outdoors and do location shoots w/ tripods, etc. I've had my old point and shoot (w/ a 10 sec timer at least) camera for about 8 yrs. now. We make do with what we got and have time for. :)

  4. I love your statement necklace and blazer. Lane Bryant has some really great looking pieces.

  5. Gorgeous, tip to toe! Speaking of toe ... those are great professional shoes with your very refined look. Bet your evening things would take this right out for drinks and dinner after work! Hope you are getting some R & R these days, and that you get out and about for the holiday season. You could wear this whole outfit!
