What I Wore Wednesday
New Work Clothes


My office recently relocated to another part of the city. I have a longer commute in some major pain-in-the-ass traffic, but it could be worse. I'd rather have a longer commute than no job at all. The new office digs are super fancy. See?


photos from the building I actually work in


We were asked to step up our work attire. I never had an issue with dressing too casually, but I totally used this an excuse to add some new pieces to my wardrobe. Here are three of the outfits I've worn since the move. All photos are taken with my iPhone in the bathroom mirror. So far, no one's walked in on me taking pictures of myself.


belted sheath dress from Target + pumps from Payless
*I really need a pink bubble necklace to complete this look.


striped knit dress w/black belt from Body Central + Jessica Simpson flats from T.J. Maxx


paisley peasant dress from NY&Co + Fioni Kutzie knot pumps from Payless




Today, I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

I'm in love with that cutsie shift dress! I wish I could wear those, but they unfortunately make me look like I'm wearing a potato sack instead of a dress!

Stopping in from What I Wore Wednesday!

I love that dresses are so in and perfect for EVERYTHING these days. Going for dinner, work, out for drinks, church (that's nothing new..,lol) it seems like I never wear pants (except jeans) ever anymore. These 3 dresses are work-perfect!

Love it all! Especially the first dress and the last shoes. Payless, really? I haven't been there in ages. I gotta check it out. Your hair looks so pretty and shiny!

I am LOVING that first dress from Target, and that you paired it with pink! Check out the link below.. she did a DIY hot pink necklace. Totally easy and I think it'd be so perfect with this!

You look great, and that building looks pretty fancy. I have to ask, if you're being asked to step up your work attire, is the company throwing down extra money? I'd be all kinds of frustrated if they weren't. Sucks you have to battle traffic, but you have a positive attitude about it!

ooh la la - that office space is amazing! I want to live in the bathroom. Your gear is awesome. I love the stripe dress!!! Sorry about the traffic though but you're right, it's better to have a job with issues than no job at all :)
