What a week...  Our beloved family Yorkie unexpectedly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge sometime Tuesday night, and we are all absolutely heartbroken.  Losing a pet is one of the worst feelings imaginable, especially when you have zero warning signs.  He is/was such a huge part of our family, and I can't imagine the last 13 years without him.  We already miss him so much!

Part of being a lawyer means going to quite a few Continuing Legal Education ("CLE") classes each year to fulfill the required number of credit hours to keep your law license active.  Some CLEs are short, but sometimes they can drag on for last 8 hours, which begs the question, what exactly does one wear to a CLE?  This can be very tricky, especially if you are new to the practice and have never been to one.  I had no idea what to wear to the first few I attended.  There is no rule per se, but dress is usually dictated by the time of day and the type of CLE you attend.  If it is a lunch seminar or directly after work, most people will just go in their normal work clothes. On the flip side, everyone is much more laid back for the 8-hour seminars and typically very casual.  When I have to attend a CLE that lasts all day, I want to look polished, but be comfortable.  I love pairing dark denim skinny jeans with a classic crisp white button-down and throwing on a fun necklace, like my Courtney Bib.  Just don't forget the coffee-  I always bring my favorite Kate Spade tumbler to get me through!

Chipper (in the blue) and Baby.  We miss him so much and Baby is so lost without her sidekick.
Back in our younger days.  See you again someday, sweet angel!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  11. Such a gorgeous outfit! Very chic and polished. Love it!

    Also, I'm sorry to hear about your dog :( It's truly heartbreaking to lose someone who's been a huge part of your life. I'm going through a similar scenario as well as my 14 year old pup is battling so many medical issues and will probably past away in the next month. It's so difficult to endure, but sending you prayers and lots of healing days ahead!

  12. I'm so sorry for your loss. Pets are totally family members, and it hurts so bad to say goodbye. Prayers for you and your fam.

    And CLE attire is always alll over the place. You see people dressed to the nines and people who look like they just rolled out of bed. I tend to take you approach. This outfit looks great on you!!!
