The Fashion Brief work outfits

I’m a big firm attorney living in Dallas, Texas – and I hate dressing like one. Black suits and white button-ups are not what you’ll find on this site.

I remember the day I decided I wanted to be an attorney. I wasn’t involved in a serious situation, wasn’t injured, wasn’t discriminated against, wasn’t screwed over in a business deal, nope, none of that. I was at Nordstrom.

I broke my arm when I was 6, and after that, I always wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. I was finishing up my freshman year of college at the University of Texas (HOOK ‘EM!) and I was just bored in science classes. I was at Nordstrom picking something up, and there it was, the most beautiful blazer and skirt I had ever laid my eyes on up to that point. At that moment, I decided I wanted to trade a lifetime of scrubs for a lifetime of dresses, skirts, and blazers that would perfectly capture my strong-willed, hard-working, go-getter (and fun!) personality and my mood that day.

Hopefully this fashion blog will inspire you guys to be more creative and adventurous with your “work clothes” and bring a little bit of style into the courtroom, conference room, classroom, or wherever you spend 40+ hours/week.  Maybe it will even help a few of you decide on your profession. 😉
