Dress – LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s (shop similar); Pumps – Payless (similar).
Something pretty exciting happened between the last time I blogged yesterday morning and tonight, and I’m not just talking about the Pretty Little Liars season premiere. (But could you blame me if I was?) This morning, I started my first real job. Well “real” if you count that it’s actually paid, which is really awesome, but it is a part-time temp gig. But hey, that’s the economy for you. #recession
In all seriousness though, this job is just what I needed and I’m super grateful. Plus I have no idea what I’d actually like to do day-to-day, so this buys me some time while helping me pay the bills. And it eases me into the “real world” because let me tell you, I was so not prepared for my 6:15 alarm this morning.
When it comes to dress code though, I usually find the first day to be more intimidating than an interview. At interviews I’m almost supposed to be overdressed and have trouble walking in heels. On the first day? I want to be comfortable, fit in with everyone and make a good impression. And what’s better for that than a flattering print wrap dress? I don’t know because it’s probably not in my closet.
P.S. I rode the subway today and it was glorious.
