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!

  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!
