The first week of any new job is challenging- there's the inevitable learning curve, the influx of e-mails and the outfit dilemma of looking professional while still injecting personality into your ensembles. I started the week with trousers and muted colours and ended with colourful tights and a bit of workplace sparkle. Whatever your career, it's always advantageous to dress for success!
Highlights of my first week included starting to set up my work space (I'm surrounded by clothing, shoes and jewellery- an office view doesn't get much better than that!) ; meeting the amazing women (and one man) who will be volunteering with the mentorship program and attending the soft-launch of a personal style workshop (which will be offered to clients over the next few months). Social work and fashion- who knew they could co-exist?
I'm linking up my Day 5 outfit to Inspiration Monday where beautiful actress Emma Stone takes centre stage in a fabulous green tuxedo jacket, black trousers and t-strap heels. I wore a toned down, work appropriate version of Emma's outfit (not to say that I won't bust out my brightly coloured pieces in weeks to come!)
