Today I start a new job!!
I think I forgot to mention that before. I've been tweeting about it, but the time just flew by so quickly, that I never got a chance to say "Hey blogging friends, guess what?!?" So... skipping that step I guess.
I'm so excited to start! I'd been at my old office for over four years. I started as a student worker, and got hired full-time right before I graduated college. It was a wonderful place to start my professional career, and it had the added bonus of being so laid-back that my wardrobe choices were easy. I basically wore whatever I woke up in the mood for!
But it was time to move on. I am still working within Texas A&M University. Mostly because I love my alma mater and I also love
What I'm most excited about is that with a new job comes a new wardrobe. Right? At least that's what I've been telling myself.
My new office is in charge of all the technology for all the classrooms in two buildings on campus - and part of my job will be to tend to any issues in the classroom if there's no one else around. Which means crawling on the floor in front of 100 college kids, or climbing up on a table in front of 30. I've thought about these - and a few other described scenarios - in addition to the fact that I now have to walk 5 minutes across campus to get to my new building from my new parking spot - and realized that my usual wardrobe of heeled sandals and a dress, or flip flops and a skirt, may not be the best options.
Here's an outfit I've been putting together in my head for day #1 on the job....
Luckily, I just bought a few Blowfish flats that'll be perfect for the duration of the winter, and I have tights to keep my legs properly covered, if I opt for the skirt/dress route. But once it starts getting hot again, I'm not sure how I'm going to cope.
So here's where you come in... I'd love your input!! How do you figure out how to balance "work appropriate"-ness and cuteness?
It's never been an issue for me before. And while I'm excited about the challenge, I'm also nervous!
Can't wait for some tips!
