First Day of Work : Part Two


Happy Tuesday! Today I'm bringing you the second installment in my series "First Day of Work". I asked my most fashionable girlfriends what they'd wear (or what they wore) on their first day of work. The first installment of the series featured my friend Jessi, you can check that post out here

These posts have given me SO much inspiration. Dressing for the first day of work is tough. You want to make a good impression but also have your personal style shine through. I've already had my first day of work, but if I had to do it all over again, I'd borrow this outfit from Michele...

Name: Michele
Occupation: Manager, Client Services at a Digital Media Company
Office Dress Code: Business Casual

Michele works in digital media. She dresses pretty casually most days unless she has client meetings or work functions. She actually wore this exact outfit on her first day of work back in January! This look isn't too buttoned up and the blue and red combo really gives her outfit a young (but professional!) feel. This outfit really works all year round. When Michele wore it last Winter, she added tights. It can also be worn without tights for the warmer Summer months. 

The first thing I'd steal from Michele's wardrobe are these shoes. How great are they? They're perfect first day shoes. Michele says that they're comfortable enough to wear on a first day when you're not sure if you'll be sitting or standing but professional enough to make you look like you're taking things seriously. I love Michele's skirt too! It's super versatile. She's not only worn it to work, but also to baby showers, family functions, fancy dinners, etc! It works with sandals, heels, boots, tights or no tights. I can actually even picture the skirt being worn with white converse for a more laid back,casual Friday look.

Michele says she chose this outfit for her first day of work because it's professional and put together but still captured her personal style. I love how Michele's outfit mimics a suit and puts a hip spin on a classic. 

Be sure to check back next week for the third installment of the series. My friend Kim, who's a teacher, will be sharing her go-to outfit for her first day of work!
