One of the things that has surprised me most about blogging has been the community that I have built up and the friends that I’ve made. I put a lot of value on my friendships with other fashion bloggers, and I want to talk a little bit about why; and why it’s important for you too to reach outside your friend group. My two best friends are women who I adore beyond measure, Maddie my best friend since the 8th grade, and Sarah who is my sorority little sister who I met in my third year of university. Along with these two women I have my friend group of university friends and lawyer friends. What I have been lucky enough to add to my life these past few years has been ‘blogger friends’. Most of these women are women I talked to online for months (if not years) before meeting in person – having met online through various blogger facebook groups or instagram DM groups. There are a number of these blogger babes who I now consider to be friends. Pictured here are some of them including Jessie, Kristina, Jess, Lily, Keyma & Candace. These are women that I see […]

🎄It’s Christmas morninggggggg!!!🎄🤣 Today is the first day of early access of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which in the everyday fashion world is definitely the equivalent of Christmas morning. … If only I had an eggnog latte to start my day! In all seriousness, as I discussed on my instagram, I will not be inundating you guys with Nordstrom Anniversary Sale blog content. I’ve got just two posts planned – today’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale top picks – and a fitting room try-on for next week to show you how items actually look and discuss fit, quality etc. Sometimes it helps just to see the outfits on a real body! If you are one of the people (like me) who are super into this sale and do want more coverage, go follow me in the free LiketoKnow.it app! In the app I will be sharing more picks and favorites. Alright – on to today’s post! Today I’m sharing my top picks from the NSale. If you have early access you can shop these picks right now! For everyone else, you’ll be able to shop on July 19th at 12:30pm. You can always come back to this post and click through the […]

One summer trend I did not see coming that I am absolutely HERE FOR is blazer and shorts sets. These matching sets have all the power-inducing abilities of work day suits (don’t miss my favorite colored work day suits), but are meant for casual summer wear. Blazer and shorts sets are quite versatile- you can wear them with a cotton tee and wedges for a Sunday adventure, or can dress up them up with a bralette / crop top for a summer night out. Stay tuned to the end of this post for a round-up of my favorite blazer and shorts sets available right now. 😊   Blazer & Shorts Set // Bralette // Layered Necklace // Similar Gold Heels – one, two, three This bubblegum pink blazer and shorts set is under $50, so a great way to try out the trend at an affordable price point if you’re a bit uncertain. I love the long length of the blazer and the 3/4 sleeves which are ever so slightly bell sleeved (see picture below). The shorts aren’t too short (hallelujah!) and are a great high-rise fit. This set fits true to size – I’m wearing a medium. I used […]

Other than my post on how I became a criminal lawyer, I haven’t discussed criminal law too much here on LLB, and I’m constantly being asked what it’s like to be a criminal lawyer. The reason I haven’t talked about it much is two-fold: one; this is my fashion/lifestyle outlet away from all things criminal law, and two, my somewhat irrational belief that I needed to keep things about my legal career separate from my blog. When I started fashion blogging I was terrified of anyone in the legal community finding out, but over time what has changed has my confidence in myself as a criminal lawyer has grown. When I was starting out I was so nervous about people judging me because I didn’t yet have a legal reputation, a client base, or the experience to have confidence in myself. Now though, I am very comfortable and proud of who I am as lawyer. I think I’m good at what I do, and if other lawyers want to gossip about my blogging or if a client finds my blog and doesn’t want to hire me, I’m okay with that. I’ve got a good client base, I’m almost too busy, […]

I am so excited today to be bringing you an exclusive insider scoop on the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog was published last week, it is only a fraction of what is actually included in the sale. I’ve been lucky enough to see the full sale list and I am sharing the inside scoop with you. Before I get started, if you want to know more about the sale – especially if you are Canadian / living in Canada trying to shop the 2019 Nordstorm Anniversary Sale – read this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale FAQ/info post first. In general, I can tell you that the brands there are probably the most of are: Leith (an affordable favorite of mine!), BP, & Halogen. There are also a bunch of Eliza J dresses, Zella Leggings & Sports Bras, and J Crew Women’s Blazers (my favorite). I’ve picked 11 of what I think will be extremely popular items that are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that aren’t in the catalog, and are sharing the details below. This section will be updated to clickable live links once the sale launches, so if you want any of these items be […]

Wedding season is officially upon us! It can be hard to find wedding guest dresses that fit the occasion, be it a garden wedding, formal wedding, etc. that you also want to wear beyond just the wedding. Today I’ve teamed up with Eliza J Dresses to share 4 dresses that be perfect as a wedding guest dress. (PS. If you’re a fan of these dresses, check out my other posts with Eliza J dresses. They are my favorite dress brand!)   Wedding Guest Dress 1: Floral Print Cocktail Dress This is officially one of my favorite summer dresses! I love the slight tulip shape, and the floral pattern is gorgeous. This dress has a slightly satin finish, which makes it work just as well for a wedding guest dress at a garden wedding as it does a more formal wedding. Also – this dress has pockets, which we all know is generally a dress win lol, but especially so if you’re worried about getting emotional at wedding! You can have kleenex on you for any emotional moments! 🙂 This dress fits true to size; I’m wearing a size 6. It’s also long enough for all of us tall girls! I’m […]

I’ve officially completed a round of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program; so today I wanted to talk a little bit about my experience, (a FASTer Way to Fat Loss review, if you will), and share my results! If you missed my initial FASTer Way to Fat Loss review – check that out first. It’s a post on The 5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting FASTer Way to Fat Loss. Disclosure: I do want to note that the cost of participating in the program was waived for me, in exchange for discussing it on social media and here on LLB. I was not paid to promote it, nor did I make any guarantees about what I would say about the program. I simply was given a free spot in exchange for talking about it. FASTer Way to Fat Loss Review: My Experience a) The “Diet” Itself: I really enjoyed the ‘diet’… and believe me I never in a million years thought I would say that. We have ‘diet culture’ so ingrained in us; along with the idea that loosing weight means depriving ourselves. I hate diet culture and have never wanted to endorse anything like that. What […]

I am swooning over this leopard print midi skirt I found for under $40 this week!! If you’ve been a LegalLee Blonde reader for a while you likely know pleated midi skirts are one of my closet staples (ex. my scarf print midi skirt and my floral midi skirt) This leopard one caught my eye because the warmer color palette makes it a leopard print you can easily wear during spring/summer. white bodysuit // leopard print midi skirt // heels // similar bucket hat To  keep my outfit summer-ready I paired my leopard print midi skirt with my white bodysuit – which I am obsessed with. It is the perfect fit bodysuit! I polished off the outfit with black sandals and a black suede bucket hat. The bucket hat trend is one I am just coming around to. Bucket hats were big during New York Fashion Week in February, but I was hesitant. They remind me so much of being a ten year old wearing tie-dye sitting at a radio waiting to record songs on to my mixed tape that they freak me out haha. That said, I finally tried out this one and actually really like the shape of […]
