What to my NEW JOB?!?!

Say what?! I have a NEW JOB?!?! Why yes, yes I do. If you've been paying attention, I have left my job at the periodontal office and have moved on to bigger (yeppers) and better (I think so) things. I actually got the news and gave my notice on the day of my What to Wear To Work post! The universe works in wonderful ways. You know my whole "when a door closes another door/a window opens" mess from this post? Well, this is more of that.

What to my NEW JOB?!?!

To be honest, I have no idea what to wear to my new job, which is strange for me. I should just be able to wear what I always wear, but this new place feels like a "pants + blazer" kind of place to me. Or "pants + cardigan" at the very least.

And I have pants, but I would much rather wear a skirt. Words I never ever thought I would ever say (or type).

I'm going to try and make my current wardrobe work, as best I can. But when faced with a dilemma such as this, my first instinct is to go to the store! "But you just spent all your savings on Mexico" says my empty bank account. And I say: "shuttup you!"

And so I've been browsing online for blazers, and pants, and cute tops. And while we're at it, why not some accessories to boot? And with spring coming, I'll need some lighter fare, etc. etc. These are cute too - polka dot hearts blouse + feather earrings - damnit!

I think for Mother's Day & my anniversary, I'm just going to ask for clothes. I feel like a teenager!

Any tips on adapting a wardrobe to a new job? Any "pants + blazer" wearers out there? Can you help a sister out?!

p.s. When I told BFF about my predicament, he told me just to wear whatever I normally wear, because I'm not the type of person to "conform" and let someone else dictate what I wear anyway. HA! Oh BFF...


  1. I agree, just wear what you want. Maybe everyone else will feel free-er (?) to spread their wardrobe wings as well!

  2. I'm also in the wear what you want camp, but I also would fret about what to wear. Best to blend in/overdress at first and then adjust from there. I love that blazer, BTW! Good choice.
