While my first day of employment isn't for another week and a half, I thought I'd show you the outfit I'm planning to wear. Mainly because I'm nervous as while I like to look smart I'm not used to having to be smart daily and also because I value your input so let me know if I'm way off base here. Everything in the image I already own so I won't need to go out and buy new which is a huge plus and this is practically the only work appropriate outfit I own spare a few blouses and knee length pencil skirts. I really do need a capsule wardrobe in this department and I feel like this can be worn with so many other things and be dressed up or down for other occasions too. However it is a lot of black and for someone that likes colour, it'll be odd. Maybe something bold on the lips or a pair of turquoise earrings to liven it up?

So what do you think? Professional enough to make a good first impression?

  1. Wow that's super smart! You're going to look really professional!

    It is a lot of black so maybe some brighter earrings or something as you say (maybe even a brighter bag or something? Though that one is really nice) - I'm jealous if I needed to be smart at short notice it'd be a boring black suit and a plain coloured shirt for me - You'll be a knockout in that! xx

  4. You've hit the nail on the head! That dress is wonderful, I love how glory the bottom half is. You'll certainly look the part! Black is a safe choice to go for until you've sussed out what you can get away with at work, and you'll rock this look! Xo

  5. Black is always a good choice- it tends to look smart without trying! Good luck for your first day lovely! xx
