What do you wear to work?

Before my current position in tech support, I was a coordinator at a fancy-shmancy salon & spa.  My wardrobe consisted of a LOT of black.  I wore heels a lot then.  Skirts, dresses, crazy tights in colors & patterns.  I wore lipstick to work.

I find that now that I work in a more relaxed atmosphere, the way I dress every day is waaaay more relaxed (see also: kind of lazy).  As I type this I am in the clothes I wore to work...jeggings, t-shirt & pullover hoodie with my work's logo on it.  I also wore some fake Ugg-like boots.  Not very glamorous...

I work with a bunch of guys that kind of live in jeans & t-shirts and, much to my boyfriend's dismay, it's rubbing off on me.  I guess this post is a letter to myself to try to kick it up a bit. I need to find that balance between being comfortable but still pretty (or sexy ;o) haha).

If anyone that happens upon this post has any good suggestions or photos of outfit inspiration, please share!


  1. Aw, I know what you mean. When I'm out on appointments I have to look my best to impress clients but when I'm home all day doing computer stuff it's an effort to get dressed at all. What I've been doing is getting rid of anything that isn't super cute so I have no choice but to look nice, haha. Do you ever lay your outfit out the night before? Might help you choose outfits that are more intentional if you aren't doing it when you're in a rush in the morning.

  2. That's probably a good idea, just need to force myself into the habit. Also, I have a problem where I have to put the outfit on to make sure I like it haha. Laying out my outfit would probably solve my issue of changing shirts 20 times in the morning...

  3. Love your blog!!
