New Beginnings

Happy New Year! Tomorrow is my first day at work, and I couldn’t be more excited for this new phase in my life (#adult). I’m so blessed to have found a niche job, perfect for someone with my educational background. I had interned with this firm last summer, and I love the people, the office, and the actual work we do!

To mark this new beginning, I had to make sure I wore an outfit that made me feel fabulous, yet comfortable. This floral lace skirt is around 2 years old, but is still my go-to all-purpose skirt. It works for so many different types of looks – corporate, casual, or dressy. I paired it with a dark blue formal shirt that compliments the skirt with it’s subtle white accents. Austin’s weather is quite unpredictable this time of year, so I added my trench coat for good measure (also worn HERE). I completed the look with my pumps and my everyday bag of choice – this functional black number from Kenneth Cole. And irrespective of whether it is sunny or not, I like to wear these sunglasses if I need the extra “girl-boss” vibes. 😉

Wish me luck! And I hope you guys have a great start to the new year!
