work attire.... for me!

Did you hear the good news???

I GOT A JOB!

I'll be working in the insurance industry on the commercial side. I am so excited! I think I hit the pavement pretty hard, and on the exact one month anniversary of us being married, I got a phone call saying I was getting an offer in two days. God really does answer your prayers at the most perfect timing. And right after I legally changed my name.

Obviously a new job comes with a new wardrobe... Well, sort of. At my old job I could literally wear anything I wanted. In the summer it was shorts, flip flops, and a top. In the winter, it was jeans and boots. Now, it's straight business attire. I'm totally OK with that, but I looked at my closet and realized I am going to need a bunch of cardigans to put over sleeveless tops and a few more pairs of casual heels.

Of course I turn to polyvore to pull together a couple of outfits that are work appropriate. Now, if only these items would appear in my closet!

Congrats on the job lovely!! Those outfits are so cute. My wedges are a staple for me, but so are my black ballet flats.

Congrats on the new job! Work clothes advice? Buy a bunch of dresses - appropriate length of course - but the top style can vary. Some of my favorite work outfits are strapless/spagh. strap dresses that I throw cardigans over, plus, then they are cute for going out in as well!

CONGRATS ON THE JOB!! I am still working on making a buisness wardrobe but I wear a lot of cardigans and ballet flats.

CONGRATULATIONS! Honestly your wardrobe will quickly become business only! I have such a hard time now finding something that's NOT business appropriate.

I'm a new follower-your blog is adorable! Congrats on the job. It really is amazing how God answers our prayers at the perfect time! I have a Clare cardigan from the J.Crew outlet in just about every color.They are probably my favorite work staple. The Banana Republic outlet is my favorite place to get pencil skirts for work, and I have gotten some great camisoles and tops to go underneath cardigans. If you're looking for work shoes, Target has some great options this Spring. I have a pair of neutral espadrille wedges that I love, as well as some nude patent and black patent peep-toe heels!
