First Day of a New Job

First Day
Today is the first official day of my new job! I’ve worked so hard to get to where I’m at today and I can’t wait to see where this journey will take me. I’ll be rocking stilettos and red lip stick just in case any of you were wondering. I have a closet full of work-appropriate clothing that I’ve been dying to wear for the last few months and I’m thrilled that today I can start wearing them again. When it comes to first day outfits, I like to appear professional but feminine. I chose this pink blazer and navy pencil skirt because it embodies both of those things. Women tend to think that in order to be respected in the workplace they need to be just as “hardcore” as the men. I believe that we should embrace our femininity and use it to our advantage. It’s what make us beautiful and powerful!

What Saturdays are for

Saturdays Shopping

My favorite part about the weekend is that I can go out shopping and eating with friends. I love farmer’s markets like Eastern Market in Washington, D.C. I also love finding cute little cafes to get my coffee at and then a glamorous place for brunch later on. Going boutique shopping or even outlet shopping is also something I love spending my weekends doing even if I don’t buy a thing.

This look was inspired by the warm summer colors I love so much and the plaids that become a staple for New Englanders in the fall. It’s a great transition look. I’m still holding onto summer for as long as I can.

This weekend I hope some of you get to go out and enjoy the fabulous shopping and dining around your cities. I’ll be sitting in my room doing homework and gulping down coffee while rocking out to my new favorite song- Hideaway by Kiesza! Seriously, it’s easy to get in the mood to do anything with this song playing.

Speaking of getting in the mood to do things, here’s a little sample of my top 5 things I need to do this weekend:

1. Finish my paper and take my quizzes
2. Clean out my closet
3. Exercise (hoping to find a kick boxing program on Netflix)
4. Organize my Lilly planner a little better
5. Relax with my Pinterest and a latte

If only there were more hours in the day… first world problems. Tell me what you’re up to this weekend in the comments below!
