My first outfit post received such great support so I am incorporating more fashion and beauty posts to the blog. Make sure to stay connected and don’t miss a beat as new and exciting things are coming to the blog.
I had promised on Facebook that I was going to have this post up earlier today but I had a very awkward day. Somehow, someway, on my walk to court this morning I managed to cut my ankle. Initially I thought I had just hit myself so I kept on walking. I realized after going through security and looking down at my shoes that there was blood on my foot. (yuck!) Although minimal, the cut caused my foot to swell up. Putting any pressure on it hurt horribly. The pain is now gone and I [hopefully]may be able to walk tomorrow without limping. What a day, right? The good thing about this incident is that I realized I should have a little first aid kit with me — and possibly slow down haha. Now onto the outfit post.
I wore this outfit to a master immigration court hearing a few weeks back. My go-to outfits for criminal court are usually black suits because they make me feel more empowered. Trust me, when advocating for my clients the more “empowered” I feel, the better. For immigration court, however, I can get by with more casual wear, specially for master hearings. Master hearings are basically short hearings where we give the judge a status update on the underlying case or show up to file paperwork. During these hearings, I am in front of a judge for no more than five minutes.
Usually if I am only going to be in court for a bit and expect to go back to the office for the rest of the day I try to dress as comfortable as can be. Comfort is the key to productivity.
This day was right before a big storm hit Southern California, and as a true Californian I was freezing in 65 degree weather. I decided to wear pants to stay warm and comfortable. I paired the pants with a white polka dot top and a warm blazer. Ideally, I would have paired this outfit with nice warm booties but the pair of booties that I have are extremely uncomfortable for distance walking and when in downtown Los Angeles, I have to walk at least a block or two … or five to get to my car.

Although this outfit may seem a little too “casual” for court, it definitely works for these type of hearings. Of course, for individual immigration hearings (which resemble trials) I opt for full suits or dress suits. This outfit would also be great for just a business casual day at the office.
I hope you enjoyed this outfit post. Let me know what type of outfits you want to see featured. As stated above, new things are coming to the blog and I’m excited and hope you are too. The next outfit post will be a more casual mom outfit so stay tuned!
