Welcome to the Jungle.

Merona Shirt Dress from Target / Utility Jacket from The Gap / T-Strap Wedges Apostrophe from Sears

I survived my first week back at work! If you have been reading my blog for a while and/or following me on twitter, you know that last week I return to work.  Its not a new job, same employer just a different position. My previous position had me out in the field doing visits to schools. My wardrobe was a bit more casual and comfortable since I was doing lots of walking. This new position has me in a office and I am now a cube jockey! (LOL read that in a magazine) I am happy about my new position, but now I have to reassess my work wardrobe.  My office is not super strict about dress code, apparent by what some people wear...LOL  I do want to look more professional and look like I give a hoot. My new position does consist of more responsibility and in essence I am a supervisor. I am firm believer that you should dress the part.  The past week I struggled a bit to figure out what to wear for work. If  it were up to me, I would be happy to wear my jeans & a blazer with some cute shoes.  That won't fly so I came up with a few looks that I thought were appropriate for the office, still with in my style and looked cute of course. 

The outfit above was one I had in my head for a while, so glad it came together. So many times the outfit in my head does not seem to work out when I put it on my body. Does that happen to any one else? I haven't really posted many of my work outfit because some worked out and some were kinda boring. I did post them on my flickr page if you want to take a look here!  This morning I was reading Hungry for Fashion, Gabi did a post of her outfit and she wrote about how she wears a lot of her work clothes for her casual non-work outfits as well. I thought that was a great idea!  I don't know why I thought I was going to need a separate work and play wardrobe.  So for those of you who work in a office do you mix up your work & casual clothes together? Do you have separate outfits for work and play? I don't think I can afford to have completely separate wardrobes so I will take Gabi's advice and mix it up.

Happy Mothers day as well to all the beautiful & stylish mommas that read my blog. I know its hard to be a mom and still try to be stylish. Some of you ladies amaze me how you can be great moms, have full time jobs and still find time to be stylish.  You ladies inspire me and hope to be as great as you when I become a momma!  Have a great day!
