Hi ho, hi ho...


I'm off to my first day at my new job today! I really have no idea what to expect once I arrive, other than filling out my I-9. Everything about my new job is different from my old one. The size and format of the company, location, dress code.  Since I did a lot of lab work at my last job, I used to head to work in jeans and flats. You can tell from my current dress, that I won't be in the lab today!






I'm new to this whole business casual dress code, it will take a while before I find my personal work style.  How do you dress at your job? Is your workplace a suit and heels kind of place, or are you rocking your favorite jeans every day? I need some inspiration!


Baby it's cold outside!

  1. What a polished outfit, Vicki! Love that skirt. The dress-code at my work place is business casuals and I love jazzing up my outfits with scarves and necklaces. BTW, how was the first day at work?

  6. Hope your first day at your new job went well! Your outfit is lovely! :)

    My office is business causal too, but very casual so on any day you will find people wearing jeans. I try to keep them just for casual Friday :)

  8. I like how professional and polished you look! I don't have to dress up at work, so that's a plus for me. You look lovely. And by the way, I like your blog.

  9. Fabulous look! Professional yet the opposite of a boring work "skirt and blouse" attire.
    I really love every single piece from head to toe!
    At the office I wear a lot of dresses, skirts as well and now while we have snow, often trousers, usually with a silky top and a blazer.
    Good luck in your new job!
