I Needed More Clothes
After officially getting offered the job I have now, the first thing I said was, “I need clothes.” I haven’t had to wear work attire for a little over a year and since then, I’ve had to put on weight. Guess how many pairs of pants fit me when I tried them all on? None. That’s what 10 pounds will do, haha. Sooooo, I knew I had to go out and get a new work wardrobe. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never liked shopping, but it’s even worse when you’re shopping for clothes in sizes that seem big to you. Should it matter? No. But it did bother me and therefore made shopping even worse.
Luckily, I have an amazing mom and sister who accompanied me and made the whole situation better. They picked things out for me and I just stayed in the dressing room trying things on. I mainly shopped at three places: The Limited, LOFT and Target. Everything I bought was on sale, but it still adds up! After my first couple of purchase I felt bad spending so much money (I’m super frugal) and returned a few things. A few days later I got this text from Todd. Remember, he was in Taiwan at this time.
That made me feel so much better and made me laugh 🙂 So here are some fun outfits I’ve worn over the past couple of moths…
This was when I first started. You can tell because Riley still had to wear a Tshirt because of her surgery. The blue dress I got on super clearance at Target.
Both of these outfits are brought to you by my mom and sister’s closet! Nothing like borrowing clothes to extend your wardrobe 🙂
It’s hard to tell the color of the shirt in the first photo so I took another one on my drive into work with better lighting. This is one of my fave outfits! The pants remind me of That 70’s Show. I got those on sale at The Limited.
More fun outfits from the fam. Kristin got me the blue leopard shirt for my birthday and the other tops I borrowed. The main things I bought, at least in the beginning, were good pants that fit and were made well (from The Limited.) “Investment pieces” if you will. Black, khaki and grey pants are a must in a work environment and so having those staples that I know will last a while, were worth the extra money (but were still on sale 😉 )
What do you wear to work?
