OK so today totally felt like Monday, right? I went into the office last night even though it was closed to get some work done since we have a ton of deadlines this week (it's always the end of the month that gets crazy), I'll be out of town May 31st-June 3rd for a family wedding in NJ, and the other attorney will be out this Thursday& Friday. So, needless to say, this week will be bananas.
Well today, I had big plans to leave the house early, drop Rusty off at daycare early, and then head over to the courthouse to get my attorney badge before work so I don't have to go through the security line anymore (which makes me feel so dirty when they have to wand me or I leave smelling like cigarettes). Um, yeah that didn't quite happen. I left the house maybe 7 minutes early and got to the courthouse well before the office closed to get the badges and when I got to the security line, I asked if I could just go down to the office to get my badge and I showed them my State Bar card but to no avail, I was rejected and told that I wouldn't make it to the office before it closed anyway since the line was so long (it was still about 15 minutes before it closed!!). WELL that was frustrating and annoying but I did have a really great suit on.
- Suit: Ann Taylor
- Flutter Sleeve Top: Ann Taylor
- Shoes: Nine West via DSW
- Double Strand Pearl Necklace: Christmas Gift circa 2009 from parents (via Carlyle& Co.)
- Pearl drop Earrings: Honora (birthday 2010 present from sister- similar to this set but mine had light pink ones instead of the bluish ones)
- Watch: Rolex (law school graduation present)
- Rings: VT Class Ring & David Yurman Petite Albion Ring in Garnet
- Bangles: Malani Jewelers
I got this suit when I was in Myrtle Beach for the Divas Half Marathon and we hit up the outlets the day before the race (remember my frustration that day??). There's nothing I love more than a great suit than a great suit on sale!!! I am literally obsessed with this suit, flutter sleeve top, and shoes. Today's whole outfit made me feel great and confident about life! Yeah life! It's days like today and little things like a new suit that make me feel like an attorney after all these years of wanting nothing but this! It really is a great feeling when you've achieved what you worked for the past 13 years of life (sorry to get so emotional there, I guess it just goes with this fantastic mood that makes me reminisce about the past so many years I've wanted nothing but to be where I am in life right now).
I just got these shoes last weekend when I hit up DSW with my mom and I love how they look professional yet are still super comfy and perfect for this outstanding start to summer we've been having in North Carolina!
In other Manisha world news today, I had a really great walk with Rusty this morning but as we approached my front door, one of my random neighbors who let their cat roam the neighborhood and we found this not cute fat cat was sitting on my front stoop and Rusty went WILD. He is not a fan of strange cats and this one just startled him so I went to pick him up so we could go through the garage since the cat refused to move and he lunged right as my hand was going around him and my pointer finger now is in tremendous pain!
Gross right?? Well, the whole finger turned red since I forgot that you need to keep wounds above your heart to keep from bleeding out (thanks lifeguarding CPR/First Aid class circa 2002!) and I dripped blood all over my kitchen as Rusty had his breakfast haha! You're welcome for that visual! Even though this morning was the epitome of crazieness, I had this little guy to brighten up my life when I picked him up from daycare!
that smile makes my heart melt!
Finally, here is my current life description:
Sometimes, I feel like a neurotic mess like my bff Kelly Kapoor. BUT I'm probably more like Mindy Lahari nowadays?
What is your favorite accessory you had on today? What's your power color you wear when you need a pick-me-up?
(I loved my double strand pearls and shoes the most about today! Red is without a doubt my 'power color'!)
