Well hello there! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted but that’s because I started my new J-O-B in the corporate world! It’s been going great but unfortunately, I haven’t had all that much time to post. So I figured I’d give you a recap of what I wore to work my first week.
Although I have a slightly more formal dress code than my past job, I was thrilled to see women in sleeveless shirts. This week, I left myself an option to have a cardigan/blazer to wear for meetings, but opted to take it off while I was at my desk so I was a little more comfortable.
PS- you’ll also notice that my hair is much darker…I decided to ditch the blonde and go brunette for fall…and I’m loving it!

We have half day Fridays year round (woo hoo!) They are also casual Fridays, so I can wear jeans. But this Friday, I had made plans long in advance to head to Cleveland to visit my friend for her bridal shower and bachelorette party. Needless to say, I forget to snap photos. Whoops.
Which look is your favorite?

Very exciting about the job and I’m loving the hair, you look great!
Aww thanks Ginny! I’m digging the dark hair for fall too! :-)
Love the new color!
Half day Fridays year round is awesome!!!!
Thanks Kim! I think I will especially appreciate the half days in the winter since I’ve had summer hours before, but never a year round thing!

Great outfits!!! And it sounds like you’re already fitting in great. Plus, half day Fridays all year round? I’m so jealous.
Thanks Erin! Yeah the half day Fridays are nice..but in my department, it isn’t always guaranteed depending on workload…still figuring that out :-)

You look simply smashing as a brunette – I LOVE it!!! I really like your outfits for your new job – the black dress with leopard flats is probably my favorite – I love it!!
