Today I’m teaming up with two fellow lawyers, Leeanne from LegalLee Blonde and Nina from The Law of Fashion, to show some office wear for the fashionable lawyer. These ladies are fun, fabulous, and fashionable, so be sure to hop over to their blogs to check out their looks for today!
Now, as many of you know, I don’t have a typical firm job. I work as part of an in-house team for a family of affiliated companies. So I don’t have to wear suits to the office everyday. If you follow along on my Instagram, you know I keep it fairly casual (but always fashionable).
That said, when I have to wear a suit, I prefer a classic black suit, with a twist. I always like to brighten up the black with some pops of color. Here, I’ve paired this washed-out neon blue top with the suit to give it more of a summer feel. And I chose crop pants, because in Kentucky, it gets HOT in the summer. We’ve already been in the mid-80s for the past week, so it’s only going to get worse.
I love to cuff my sleeves on my blazer for a more fun look, and it matches the look of the cropped pants.
Let’s talk about this bag for a minute. This is a Jet Set Tote from Michael Kors (outlet). I absolutely love this tote. It has 3 compartments with a zippered middle compartment. I like to stick my papers in one compartment, my Macbook Air in the other, and my personal effects in the zipper compartment. It also has side pockets and inside pockets for organization. It’s seriously the perfect combination for a handbag/work bag.
