Last Day

tee and shoes: Old Navy, jeans: Gap outlet

We're back from vacation #2! Thanks to Beth and Heidi for filling in for me while I was gone so this blog wouldn't be completely quiet for a week. I hope you enjoyed getting the chance to know them! I promise to do a recap of all the fun things we got the opportunity to do on vacation, but want to focus on today first. After a week of vacation, I returned to work today for my last day. I know, it doesn't make much sense, but due to my limited available vacation time and the flight back we chose due to the prices, I had planned to return to work today anyway. It just so happened to make the most sense for today to be my last day, and when nobody in management gave me a hard time about it, I stuck with that schedule!

I start my new job as an academic advisor on Monday. I'm more excited than nervous, but feel like it's the first day of school all over again or something like that. I keep stressing about what outfit to wear (although I have plenty of options after spending a decent amount of my vacation shopping!) and I just want everyone to like me. :) I've spent the past two and a half years working with an amazing team with co-workers who are smart, compassionate, funny, and most importantly sane! haha.  (I say this because I think we've all had that crazy co-worker, right?!) I have to say that I'm going to miss them like crazy and I hope we all stay in touch! 

Academic advising is what my master's degree is in and it's what I've wanted to do for several years now. I'm so excited to finally get the opportunity, but have to admit that there's some anxiety there too. What if it's not as great as I thought? What if I'm an awful advisor?! I have a lot of faith in my abilities, but still can't help that those nerves are creeping in!

By the way...linking up with Allison today over at Two Thirty-Five Designs for Casual Friday!


  1. I love your striped cute! Wishing you a great first day at work!

  2. For your new job. Dont forget. Suits and heels are always a great choice.

    - get neutral trouser pants like black and tan. (they can go with any top or shoe)

    - fitted jackets in different colors to go with anything

    - Heels heels heels. Professional and classy

    - Leather flats for the few days you need a break from heels.

    - confidence (show your confident with what your weaing and how your acting to gain respect right away)

    MY advice in dressing for it. Dress better than the job. that is always a good thing to do.

  3. by the way. Those jeans you have on are simply amazing. perfect fit on you and perfect style.

    Have you tried dark wash trouser jeans? I could see those working amazing on you also.

    Now that you are doing your new job dont forget to post your daily work outfits.

  4. Glad to hear that you enjoyed vacation! And I bet the new job will be great - it's always exciting starting something new like that. As far as this adorable jean and tee combo - you're winning my heart with the stripes and neon cap-toe shoes. So cute! Can't wait until it's cool enough in my area to wear jeans all day.
