Paralegal Career Dressing: Visible Monday & Smurf Tights

This week I'll be pulling some articles of clothing out of my tiny closet that I'm not sure if I should keep or donate, like this shawl sweater that is short in the back, but almost a knee length blankie in front. Every time I wear it,  I feel swallowed whole by it. My female supervising attorney suggested that maybe the front ends needed to be tied instead of left hanging, which was a bit of a challenge with the belt attached to the sweater. But I tied it and liked it.

As for the tights, not a single person I met today didn't mention them...good? bad? I dunno, but definitely visible for Not Yet Dead Style's Visible Monday.

Cardigan (old Marshall's); Loft skirt (thrifted); Apostrophe tank (old Sears); Rialto shooties (very inexpensive Ross); Multi-chain necklace (super inexpensive Burlington Coat Outlet); Ring (Jada's Jewels); Tights (We Love Colors)
My boss helpfully pointed out that I matched my dual monitor screens, always a fashion plus.

Is there such a thing as a paralegal smurf?

The original galoshes (Target) I wore in - we had a dab o' snow!
I love, love, love this cocktail ring from Jada's Jewels. It made me happy to look at it even when I was typing boring stuff.
My morning email with Jada's Jewel's specials of the day makes my day. Want to sign up to receive your own email? Follow this link.

Have you got stuff in your closet that's in the undecided category - hard to wear but hard to part with?

  2. Gorgeous ring Lynne!
    You look fabulous in blue...very complementary to your pretty auburn hair.

  3. Love how you can effortlessly tie your cardigan. I have one similar and it always looks weird if I do anything except let it hang!

  5. I love the bright blue tights, Lynne! They are so funky.

    The cardigan is not really my bag - I prefer more structure - but the colour is wonderful. So rich.

  7. Jeannie, thanks. That ring makes me happy, and the hair, well, that's what washing the gray out of it does :P

  8. Narda, I promise it was not effortless...lol. I bought several of those long cardigans when they were "in" - not sure why I thought they would look good on a petite person, but I'm always good so I probably really meant to buy blankets I could wear :)

  10. Sheila, I'm mad for bright tights after getting hooked on style blogs. Can you believe I used to only buy black or dark grey? I thought I was so cool!

    I know I need more structured clothing, because I'm not tall and clothes can overwhelm me. Tying the cardi improved it, but I'll be giving it a long look for the consignment store next time I clean out my tiny closet.
