Old Habits (See Jane Wear)

J Crew shirt + skirt, Zara cardigan, Karen Walker sunglasses, LV bag, Express wedges
I can't thank you all enough for your kind and encouraging words regarding my recent career change.  It's a big change but I'm ready and excited for a change of pace.  I know I'll be working a lot of late nights and scrambling to get new clients (which, by the way, if you know of a guy in your life that may be interested or just want me to answer any questions--just email me!)

Anyway, I mentioned that the new job doesn't really have a dress code but I definitely won't be shaking my button-up and cardigan collection that I've acquired over the years.  The skirt is shorter than I'm used to at work, but it's fun to be able to wear it all day.  It'll take me awhile (or never) to stop my business casual tendencies; old habits die hard.


PS. Did you notice my sad, little basil plant in the first picture?  It died while on my honeymoon...probably time to get rid of it, eh?

    If I ever have to go into the real business world it will be so hard for me to dress business casual since where I work we don't really... XD

  11. Still so appropriate but very cute!!! A little freedom will be fun to play around with - plus a preppy/classic look is always a great look no matter the job!

  25. I'm so excited for you on your new venture. You look amazing in this outfit. I love the shoes. I ordered them in red awhile ago and had to send them back because they didn't fit well. Did you order your regular size or go up or down a size? Just curious.

    Also, as an extension of See Tracy stalk See Jane, I recently purchased the Lafayette E&J sunnies. I LOVE THEM!!! You inspire me daily.

    xo,
    Tracy

  26. No reason to change your style just because you don't have to dress business casual! I dressed up way more to go to classes than everyone else but I love how I feel dressed up and that's all that matters :) I felt silly at first, but got over it pretty quick and it wasn't long until people were telling me they loved seeing what I was wearing every day :)

  33. This look works very well. I love the sheerness of the shirts and the breeziness of the shorts. The look is so effortless until you get to the shoes. The shoes are so fun!
