A Tour Through Blogland

Hi, everyone!  

I am so excited about today's post!  I was nominated to participate in "A Tour Through Blogland" by the wonderful ladies of the Brooke and Jane Blog.  I absolutely love their blog and think it is so cool that they are sisters-in-law!  They have everything from fashion to food, beauty, recipes and so much more.  It truly is an "Everything Blog" and you could spend hours perusing around looking for inspiration.  (Guilty!!)  I definitely wanted to join in on the fun and let readers know what my blog is all about.

1. What am I working on?
I recently collaborated with a couple of different brands, which was amazing, and I am currently working on some upcoming posts with other blogger friends. Also, last month I discussed "The Top Five Things I’ve Learned in My First Year as a Lawyer" and I plan on doing a follow-up post discussing Bar Exam Success Strategies and Helpful Study Tips for readers taking the February Bar Exam.  (Things I wish someone would have told me!!).  In the future, I would also love to feature more beauty posts and possibly even incorporate video.  Lots of exciting things ahead on the Lawyer Lookbook… stay tuned!  :)

**Here are a few of my recent collaborations via my Instagram123 (all three looks by In Bloom Boutique, c/o), 4 (eShakti, c/o).  I love all of these looks!

2.  How does my work differ from others in it's genre?
I absolutely love to read other blogs and find so much inspiration from doing so!  I love how blogging and social media gives us the platform to celebrate our love for fashion, yet we all have our own unique story and perspective.  That’s what makes blogging so interesting and fun!  I love getting to know other bloggers and readers, as well as their stories.  With that being said, I suppose what makes my blog different is that it primarily features professional style.

3. Why do I write/create what I do?
First and foremost, I love blogging- it is my creative release!  The legal world is primarily male-dominated and does not always embrace fashion.  In my world, first impressions are everything and I always want to look my best while staying true to my personal style.  In many career fields, so many women are afraid to take wardrobe risks at the office for fear of not being taken seriously.  However, I am a firm believer that professional women can be both successful and stylish (think Ivanka Trump), which drove me to start Lawyer Lookbook.

4. How does my writing/creating process work?
As Kate Spade once said, “Playing dress up begins at age five and never truly ends.”  I could not agree more!  I find inspiration from magazines, blogs, Pinterest and just being out and about.  I plan my outfits throughout the week and my dad takes my pictures on the weekends. He is incredibly helpful and I am so grateful for him!  I know he would probably much rather watch football (haha), but he is an excellent sport and we always have a great time.  I usually create content on the weekend and post throughout the week.  I have learned so much from blogging and I am loving every minute of it!

Without further adieu, I would love for you to meet two of my favorite bloggers!  Be sure to visit their blogs, I know you will love them!  Enjoy!
Hi, I'm Becky from Teaching, Learning, & Loving.  I am a Christian, wife, mommy, educational blogger, teachers pay teachers seller and a Pampered Chef consultant.  I also have a M.ed in Instructional Technology.  As you can see, I wear many hats!  I taught Kindergarten for 4 years and virtually in 3rd grade.  I loved being in the classroom, but after having my sweet girl I decided to stay home.  This has given me time to focus on being a mommy, my teachers pay teachers store, my blog and Pampered Chef.  I started my blog in hopes of inspiring other teachers, parents and home school families. 

Hi, I'm Tif from Bright on a Budget!  I'm a young professional, wife, and mommy.  I'm also a dedicated bargain hunter who's committed to never paying full-price for anything.  I'll give you beauty, life, and style tips for how to be bright on a budget!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
