Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off to Work I Go


Hi Everyone!

If you didn't know - I have a new job. I am so excited! I've mentioned it before, but the position is within digital marketing, helping people reach their target audiences via different internet mediums. I'm finally on a career ladder and again I really really really really really... (you get the idea) cannot wait!


There is one thing that I am not excited about...


What on Earth do you wear to work?

The experience I have (in terms of work wear) is extremely limited.
I have worn all black as a waitress - I'm pretty sure that this is just a go to colour to reduce washing and to stop making you looking really grubby. It definitely helps hide food stains and water from washing up anyway.

I then wore black jeans and a top, which was too tight, along with too much makeup and big hair in order to get tips whilst working at a bar. I was desperate for money ok!? And it worked

I now just wear uniform.

In a previous link, which is here, I've clearly stated my hatred for said uniform, but now, this safe option, this comfy, this if I put on 7 stone in a day option has gone. I do not know what to do.

Is it acceptable to wear jeans on a Friday?
Can I wear smart jeans all week?
What about patterned trousers?
Do I go smart casual, formal, posh...


But, here are a few ideas that I'm going to try.

The dress and cardi combo
A fancy blouse and slim black trousers
Peplum and pencil skirt
...and that is it
...very boring and not what I want to portray to my new all male team

I will post my outfits on here and do a work week wardrobe vlog post to give others who may have this problem some very lovely advice and ideas as I start to grow my work wardrobe knowledge and the etiquette that comes with it, but for now I will be panicking and grabbing as many magazines as possible for some much needed inspiration!

If you guys have any ideas, please let me know!
