Same dress, more casual look 🤗 sometimes I'll swap out the flats for my @toryburch Miller sandals and have the perfect #casualfriday outfit where I'm comfortable and relaxed, but still put together enough in case a client or potential new client decides to drop by my office! My health insurance finally kicked in so I'm spending this weekend going to as many doctors appointments as I could schedule! It's such a #millennial problem, but I've actually been kicked off my mom's health insurance
Happy #workwearwednesday everyone!! This is what I wore for a #CLE class I took recently. For those of the who don't know, once you become licensed, you'll have to take continuing legal education classes each year to keep you up to date on the new laws in your field, teach you about a new area of the law, and of course ethics. How much you have to attend depends on your state! Anyways, I wore #businessprofessional just to be on the safe side, and most people either wore that or #businesscasua

My first road trip as a #lawyer is this week! My firm represents clients from all over Texas, so this is the start of a lot of #worktrip for me. I don't know what all I'll need to prepare for a #businesstrip but I'm sure I'm about to learn a lot of tips to share with y'all! In the mean time, if YOU have any advice, I'll gladly take it. As soon as I found out that I'd be traveling a lot with my job, I knew it was time to start researching tilling briefcases or "mobile offices" as this one is

Happy #workwearwednesday everyone! Obviously I was feeling this outfit and was in such a good mood showing it off. This top is from @talbotsofficial and I absolutely love it because it's lined so you can't see my bra at all! A tip for buying a #whiteworkshirt is to got shopping in your brightest, most colorful bra and if you can see it then you know that's not the shirt for you. Better to be safe than inappropriate!
Do you ever wonder how early #RachelZane has to get up in the morning just to do her hair loss makeup 🤔🤔 I try to look my best everyday, but sometimes I just don't have timely for it all • • My favorite hairstyle for #seconddayhair or #dirtyhair whatever you call it, is a simple ponytail! Taking a strand of hair and wrapping it around your hair tie is an easy way to elevate a ponytail to a professional look. I like to think of this as my "get business done" hair because it's up out of
Wearing all black sounds professional, but it can be a little tricky to look like you're going to work and not a funeral. I look for an #lbd that has something playful on it, like how this dress has a fun little tie details on the sleeve or bell sleeves on another black dress I have 🖤🖤 What's your favorite color to wear for #workwearWednesday
My favorite color combo for fall is black, brown and red 🖤❤️ I worked a retail job my sophomore year of college and put a little money aside each month to be able to save up for this @burberry #cashmere scarf and I'm so happy in did! Every year I get so excited when the weather drops so I can pull this baby out. What's an investment piece that you've splurged on and are glad you did??
My work style icon is Emily Gilmore from #GilmoreGirls She always looks so classy and put together so give me allll the tweed. What TV or movie character do you take inspiration from?? • And if you're still in high school, this week's post is all about what you can be doing RIGHT NOW to start preparing for law school (hint: it's more than just good GPA or debate team)! Share the post with your high school friend whose Instagram is full of #Senior19 or #Senior2019
One of my go-to lawyer looks is a classic dress with a suit jacket or blazer layered on top because I instantly feel like an HBIC ready to make power moves. Plus, a dress is less laundry to do than both a top and bottoms 🙈 I take the jacket off to transition to a more business casual look after I get back to the office from a mediation or hearing. • It's #workwearwednesday so as always, if you like something I'm wearing you can shop this look through the #linkinbio or #ontheblog
It's #shoesday 👠👠 As soon as I accepted my job offer I ran out and bought these shoes since my old ones bit the dust 💀 The problem is that since then, it's gotten coldest (evening here in Houston!!) so my feet shrink sometimes making these shoes just a tiiiiiiny bit too big. • • A trick I do on these days to keep my toes from sliding down too far is to spray a little hairspray on my feet, wait a few seconds as it partially dries, and then wear them as normal! 👣💯 • • I've been in a @sam_ed
The secret to wearing heels all day in the office? Don't 🤗 I found these super cozy shoes at @target and slip into them when I'm at my desk. The loafer style with leather and metal accents makes me feel better about basically wearing house shoes at work, and the fur lined bottoms keep my toes the perfect temperature in an office 🔥 I can quickly slip them off and slide back into my heels if I need to. This way, I give my feet a little break while still looking professional when I'm walking arou
My favorite corner of my desk!! For my desk, I decided to decorate it in gold and black, with marble accents. I chose this color palette because it is feminine without being over the top girly, is professional without being boring, and matches the black desk accessories that were already here when I got hired. Eventually I want to have this theme carried throughout my office, but for now I wanted to share this little corner of happiness with y'all 💛🖤
In case you didn't know, today is #GivingTuesday2018 and is a day for you to remember to pause from all the holiday deals and shopping and to remember to give back to the community around you. I've updated last year's #GivingTuesday post to give you even more ideas of how you can give back today (almost all of them are #free to do!). And if you're wondering, that's my wonderful #sister with me at my #lawschoolgraduation but you'll have to read the post to see why Giving Tuesday is a special day
