Those who follow me on Instagram, know I was in a bit of a panic a few weeks ago when I decided that, after a long hiatus, I would complete the second portion of my degree to become a practicing lawyer.
An amazing opportunity came my way to be an instructing solicitor in a criminal trial. However, even with the excitement of making my way back into the legal world, I was stressed about the fact I had absolutely NO court appropriate clothing. Although my main goal was to look the part (judges are known to comment), I also had a second goal in mind – to show that I am a force to be reckoned with. I want to show that there’s nothing I can’t handle and most importantly, that I belong in this world. That’s what this outfit is to me – a lady boss who’s ready to take on the next challenge thrown her way.
Noteworthy pieces –
Blazer – Country Road (old – was my mum’s in the 80s)
Culottes – DISSH (last season)
Heels – Jo Mercer
