Friday afternoon I had to dress lawyer-like for an interview. I don’t wear my suit often, so I was surprised (and excited!) to find that my suit pants are too big. Guess I have an excuse to go shopping! I chose the ruffle shirt in an attempt to make my suit feel more ladylike. I really wanted to find a way to glam it up a bit more, like adding this belt, but I couldn’t find my belt anywhere. Also, I had a near uncontrollable urge to add a giant, sparkly statement necklace under the collar, but I’m not sure how well-received that would be at a serious lawyer-job interview.
 
Today, my best friend from college came to go shopping for the day. I’ve had an H&M gift card burning a hole in my pocket for a couple of months now, so I couldn’t wait to spend it. I was feeling extra trendsetter-ish today, so what did I buy with my gift card? Faux leather shorts. (Who am I?) I just really love how sophisticated they looked here, so I thought I’d try a pair (although mine are black). Who knows if I’ll ever end up wearing them, but they were only $10. For a price like that, it’s a risk I’m willing to take! Next trends to try on my list: colorful jeans (red, blue, pink, maybe orange?), specifically these and these.
 
Happy long weekend!

    Aww, thank you both so much! I like wearing my suit every once in a while (like, 4 times a year is plenty), but I have a feeling I’m going to have to wear it every day once I get my big girl law job. As for the leather shorts, they will definitely be making a blog appearance soon!

    Corporate Katy is GORG! (Ok, you’re always gorg, but you know what I mean!) I’m glad I don’t have to wear a suit every day but they do make me feel good about myself.

    And leather shorts?! I have to see these!

    Very polished and chic. I don’t think I’ve ever worn my suit since interviewing for academic jobs several years ago. The separate pieces blend in with lots of other looks though. Good luck!
