Welcome to the Real World

Some of you may have noticed I've been a bit MIA for the past 2 weeks. I know I was going to try harder to post more often and more consistently..but this time I have a REALLY good reason.


And the best part?? It's in NYC, baby! I'm a marketing coordinator for a small company and I couldn't be more excited! I started on Tuesday, November 19 and have been busting my behind ever since. Although I must say that I started at quite a fortunate time since my first 2 weeks were short due to the holidays.

So that's a little update as to where I've been recently. I took some pictures of my first couple of "work wear" outfits. The office is totally casual, but a girl can't help but dress it up a few knotches :)

Day 1: I went for a modern twist of the business suit as well as incorporating the black and navy trend. I had on navy Zara leggings, a white Zara top (similar), a black blazer with leather detailing from Urban Outfitters (similar), and (of course) my Steve Madden cut out booties (similar). 

Day 2: I eased into a slightly more casual look. I wore the same Zara leggings except in black, a black and white sweater from Target (totally affordable and totally chic!), and, you guessed it, my Steve Madden cut out booties (similar).

It was fun and nerve wrecking picking out my outfits for the week. I'm lucky enough to work in a casual environment where pretty much anything goes, but I still wanted to impress them! I'm just glad the I'll be able express myself and experiment with my fashion while working a full time job. Not many people in the business world get the same opportunity. 

So far I'm loving my job and the people I work with. I think that's something that has always been a priority to me when looking for a job. Even if I wasn't doing exactly what I wanted to, I needed to be surrounded by people and in an environment that was open and exhilarating. I have found just that. And it is wonderful!

I'll be sure to keep you updated on how everything's going. I'm still trying to get used to the new routine (6 AM mornings and 8 PM returns? Oy.). I even asked for an iPad case with a keyboard attached to it for Christmas to be able to draft posts on the train rides so I can just upload them when I get home. You have no idea how exhausted I am by the time I get home at night. I can barely keep my eyes open. 

Speaking of which, it's getting to be that time where my eyes are shutting. But don't worry. More is sure to come!
