First Day of Work : Part Three


Hello friends! To the faithful readers of my blog - I know, I know, I've been totally MIA for the last few weeks. As I mentioned before, I recently started a new job. The last few weeks have been crazy. I'm learning a lot and my brain is just filled to the brim with new information. 

Today, I bring you the third installment in my First Day of Work series. I asked some of my most fashionable girlfriends what they wore on their first day of work. The first and second part of the series can be found here and here.  The first few days (or even weeks!) of work are so nerve-racking. Aside from making a good impression and knowing the ropes of your new position, it's important to dress the part too. That means, always looking put together, appropriate, and of course... stylish! 

Name: Kimberly
Occupation: Middle School Teacher
Dress Code: Professional

Kim has one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs. The best part of her job? Being an educator. The hardest part of her job? Picking an outfit in the morning. Kim has to impress her students and her fellow teachers! 

What better way to start off the school year than with flowers? I'm obsessed with the color pattern of the flowers on Kim's dress. It's subdued yet has personality. Kim can be professional in this dress but still express excitement for the first day of school. When you're working a long day and standing in front of a class of students all day, it's important to be comfortable. Kim says that this dress is one of the most comfortable dresses she owns. It's made of polyester and spandex. This sleeveless and breezy dress is perfect for those warm September days. Kim always has to pay close attention to shoes. Kim says that most teachers avoid heels because they are on their feet all day. Certain days, like the first day of school are exceptions! Kim's shoes are Calvin Klein and it's easy to make it through the day in these pumps. They're so professional and match anything. Hmmm. I may have to purchase a pair for myself... 

The book Kim is holding in the pictures is called The First Days of School by Wong & Wong. Kim says, this book is a must read, whether it is a new teaching job or a new school year. It literally is a survival kit. It is filled with goodies and motivation. It is sure to put a smile on your face and remind you of how exciting it is to be a teacher. 

Kim's advice for the first day of work - No matter what you decide to wear on the first day of work or school, always remember that your best accessory is your smile :)

Thanks so much for reading! Check back soon for the next installment in the series!
