New Job, New Hair, New Clothes!

4 Aug

In honor of starting my new job, I got myself a new hair do. I chopped off about 6 inches and got some low lights. I also bought myself some new clothes. I am kind of excited to have an excuse to care about how I look. I was at my previous job for 6 years and ended up in a rut with caring about my looks. Everyone would show up in jeans and a t-shirt, and you were the weird one if you got dressed up at all. Honestly, I didn’t really mind it; I enjoy being comfortable, but it’s time for a change, and I’m fully embracing it. A new job, a new do, and a new wardrobe. I’m excited!

Here’s a before and after of my hair. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve already seen it, and if you don’t follow me there, then you should! 😉

I have been doing a little shopping throughout the last week or so to build up my wardrobe. Like I said, I am used to rolling out of bed and throwing on jeans and a t-shirt, so I had zero nice work clothes. I bought a pair of black, grey and khaki dress pants and a few new tops. I shopped at the Outlet Mall and found some good deals at Anne Taylor and Banana Republic. I found my dress pants at Costco of all places. You never know what you’ll find there! They are Calvin Klein too. Score! Here are some of the tops I found…

Blue Tee from Banana Republic. It’s so soft, and I love the color!

I also bought a black cardigan from Banana Republic to wear over the tanks.

I’m so happy to have some new outfits that I feel confident wearing. It’s been awhile since I’ve felt this good, and I’m getting really excited (and nervous) to start my new job on Tuesday. Wish me luck!

Where do you like to shop for dress clothes? How often do you treat yourself to new outfits? I think I need to do this more often!



Oh, what a day…

1 Feb

It’s been a long day, not in a bad way. It’s actually been a pretty good one overall, just long. My brain is pooped from a busy day at work. I’m not excited that I have two more days of it ahead of me either (boo Saturday rotation!). But, on a high note, I had a new outfit to wear today. That helps a lot! I scored a sweater and some skinnies from the clearance rack at Macy’s for a whopping total of 28 bucks! The cashier was surprised at all my great finds. I think she was just as excited as me when my purchase of three pairs of jeans and a sweater came to a total of $77. Woo hoo! Anyway, here is a picture of the outfit I wore today..


My favorite part is the zipper pockets on the pants, very punk rock! Heehee

When I got home from work, I got to play with my little man and hang out with the hubs. The hubby made me a yummy taco salad for dinner. MMM MMM!


After dinner, we watched a documentary called “Catfish”. It’s about a 24 year old guy who meets someone on the internet who turns out to be someone unexpected. I really recommend it. It was quite entertaining, and I heard they now have a series on MTV. I’ll have to check that out soon! But, for now I’m going to get some ZZZ’s. Another long day awaits me tomorrow. Night night!
