First Day of Work Outfit

office style

Hello lovelies! Yesterday was my first day of work at my new job and I really enjoyed it. The office is unique because the interior of the building is made from repurposed wood, bricks, barn doors, and an old movie theater tin ceiling. My desk is especially cool because it’s made from an old stained wood floor. The people in the office seem to be a great group with lots of enthusiasm and outgoing personalities.

Any time I’ve ever started a new job my biggest concern was what to wear on the first day. Dress too casually and you’ll feel out of place; dress too formally and you’ll appear stuffy. For my first day, I wore a Lauren Conrad gray and white fit and flare dress with a light pink Charming Charlie blanket scarf. This dress is so comfortable and looks really nice when worn with a pretty pair of heels!

I found these Ann Taylor navy blue stilettos at the outlets and they were on sale for $30! Not being able to pass up a great deal like that, I purchased them and they’ve become a staple shoe in my wardrobe. Since I’m a bit taller than average, I tend to avoid heels and opt for flats instead. One shoe that I’ve been trying to get my hands on is a pair of kitten heels. They look much easier to walk in and won’t make me appear so tall. Let me know if you see any on sale!

I hope your Thursday goes quickly and smoothly. Leave me a comment with your favorite “first day” outfit (I need inspiration for the rest of my work week!)
