So needless to say, it’s been a little busy these past couple weeks! You know why?
I got a new job!
Yes, that’s right! After working in nonprofit marketing/communications for three years, I am headed to the corporate world! I’ve accepted an offer with a pharmaceutical company in the area and will be working in the Corporate Communications department. I am SO excited for this new chapter in my career!
I’ve been super busy wrapping things up at my old gig and am anxiously awaiting my start date. I’ve got a few days off before I start in September, so I hope to take some time to relax, recharge and do some shopping!
The corporate culture in terms of wardrobe is very different than a nonprofit. That said, I’ll definitely need to get a few pieces to “step it up” a bit in terms of professional attire. I know I’ll be able to remix a lot of what I already have, but I am making a list of key investment pieces or completer pieces that I know I’ll need, like blazers, nice shells/tops to go under them or to be worn alone, dress pants and close-toed heels. I definitely hope to document this transition on the blog as I go! Do you have any advice on how to achieve corporate chic style?!
As for the blog, I’m not sure how my schedule will be affected so I am really playing it by ear. I definitely plan to continue blogging, but maybe just less often with posts and comments, etc. I definitely plan to blog more of my outfits, but it might be a weekly or twice a week thing—we’ll see!
As always, THANK YOU for reading! I’m off to my second to last day of work and then our office is closing early for the staff to head to a local restaurant for drinks & appetizers in my honor…super sweet right?!
