Today was my first day back at work for the new year. I enjoyed every last minute of my vacation time these last two weeks but it was finally time to get back into the daily grind. After a long break such as this, I usually treat going back to work like my first day back at school. I take time the night before and have everything laid out and ready to go the next morning. It’s like being a little kid again but it definitely helps get me back into the swing of things a little easier. Being organized and streamlining my daily life (mornings especially!) is something I’m hoping to get better at this year so it felt good starting today off with everything ready to go!
If I could give one piece of advice to my younger, fresh-out-of-college self looking to dress workplace-chic, it would be to invest in good blazers. I never realized how great they are for transitioning a casual look to a professional one. I tend to go for more fitted blazers to suit my petite frame and look for collarless styles to avoid looking too stuffy. This look, paired with a colorful bubble statement necklace, was the perfect way to kick off a new year in the office!
