I am a Legal Geek, but I also have range.

Hi, I’m Blessing!

I arrived upon the moniker  ‘The Chic Legal Geek’ and defined it as: ‘someone who is intelligent, connected with the law, stylish and fashionable’. When I thought of this I imagined the lawyer just like me, someone who has a strong personal style and uses it to expresses themselves and tell the world who they are and the energy they are bringing to the table. 

A Chic Legal Geek is connected with the law, be it as a practising lawyer, a paralegal or other legal professional or a law student and they are knowledgable about legal issues that interest them. However, they are also a multifaceted person and that will always shines through in everything they do. There is life outside of Law and I hope that this blog can be an antidote to the idea that lawyers have to look and act a certain way, especially barristers.

 

I knew I was never going to be your standard lifestyle and fashion blogger. For me, it’s less about the things I wear and what I do than it is the feeling that my style and the environments I like to spend time in give me. This blog is where I share my views on legal and political issues and subjects that I consider important as well as posts on fashion and lifestyle. I am a Legal Geek, but I also have range. I hope you enjoy reading! Subscribe to the mailing list so you never miss a post and follow me online, I’m mainly active on Twitter and Instagram and YouTube. 

If you enjoy visual fashion and lifestyle aesthetics you should follow the @chiclegalgeek Instagram page.

I love fresh drinks on ice ✨⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I put fresh fruit in my summer punches and when I get the chance I sit outside listening to @egoellamay in the sunshine☀️ This was a rum and mint concoction I made to go with my brunch. Couple of parts dark rum, then some fresh orange and top the rest off with whatever you can find that has some fizz. I am not an expert.

I like reading Vogue. Also, have you ever put a fresh and very sweet strawberry in your mouth, taken a sip of rosé and then crushed the strawberry with your tongue?⠀

Texture and details ✨⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have been inspired by @aleyole_jewelry and now I want to get staple earrings that I always wear. I love their jewellery and how classic but bold it is. The perfect blend of minimalist and modern. Each piece feels really unique. I like that because I want to feel like I am wearing something special and designed with intention.

Following on from my infatuation with @kaicollective, I have found another amazing Nigerian-British label to give all my money to. This is the ‘Omenma’ top from Ardelle and I just love it. Romantic clothes make me happy.

Planning my great escape ✨⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The legal team I work on is prepping for hearings. My Google Calendar is full. I am falling asleep like a stone these days. I reminisce about Croatia (possibly my favourite place in Europe) and what I would do to be sat on an rock by the sea eating some gregada (traditional Croatian fish stew). Considering solo travel although I do love to be with my girlfriends when I go abroad so I’ll probably do both. Until Summer 2021...

Intentional goal setting ✨⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have always been into making plans and setting goals for myself but recently I have overhauled my approach to my goals and am getting into the practice of being more intentional with how I want every day to feed towards my wider goals. I am using different methods to do this, but one such method is using notebooks like this one from @ramapublishing which is specifically designed to help you clarify and review daily steps to achieve your goals.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you set goals and achieve them? Do you break them down into daily steps?

Song: ‘No Pressure’ - @mahalia | Link to full playlist in my bio⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I make playlists for different moods. This playlist was made in January 2018 when I was deep into the #GDL and Law School was *tough*. I had to focus a lot and I was also trying to complete mini-pupillages, write my first journal articles, produce content for @blessingatthebar, be in a relationship and plan for my future career as a barrister at the same time. It was an insane period of time so I called this playlist “KILLER JAN”. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you also use music to focus and meditate, then this playlist is for you. For when times are tough and you need to remind yourself that you most certainly *are* that b*tch. I picked each song for the lyrics which I feel empowered me and pushed me forward through law school. Shout out to everyone killing it in #lawschool ❤️🙏🏾

I love high quality denim which is why I am a very established @levis stan. It’s funny though because I haven’t worn jeans in so long but I usually live in them! I only own one pair of tracksuit bottoms because I hate tracksuits so I am now resorting to wearing big T-shirt’s as dresses. What about you? Are you wearing jeans in the house?

I love crisp, white shirts. I have about eight white shirts and counting. I love the way they make me feel.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
White is such a pure colour, it demands that you are impeccably clean and careful when you wear it. When I wear white shirts I feel like I tapping into my ultimate #virgo energy. White reminds me of cleanliness, orderliness and precision. I wear white when I am extremely serious and I plan on being taken seriously. I wore white on a date once and underneath I had a black lace body from @ivoryroselingerie, just in case the night called for a sexier vibe (if you get what I mean 😏). It did and I actually took off the white blouse and transitioned into only black because serious time was over!⠀
