And here are some photos of what I wore to work today:
|cardigan: J. Crew, top: H&M, skirt: F21, wedges: Old Navy (seriously!), watch: Fossil (last year), nails: Essie Mint Candy Apple|
|Awkward smile? Yep!|
As you might be able to glean from these photographs, my place of employment has a rather relaxed dress code...er, rather...not really a written dress code at all. Perhaps this would seem like a benefit to some, but for me it is a struggle. I want to look put together and neat for the students and faculty I work with so that they respect me as a staff member, but I also want to look my age (27) and not like some twenty-something stuffed into dowdy work attire.
It got up to 85 degrees on this day, and I had a feeling the A/C would not yet be on in my building (whaddya know...I was right!), so I dressed in breathable layers. A flash of a bright, cheery polka dots, a little wedge, and a simple top and I was ready to go. Getting ready for work really can't be easier.
PS: I promise to get better at photographing things. Seriously.
