New Kid in the Cube
Today was my first day at a new job, and as such, I knew I needed to put some extra thought into my outfit. Most publishing offices are pretty laid-back in terms of dress, and since it was pouring rain this morning, it was tempting to put on comfortable pants and a sweater, but I resisted that impulse. On any first day, it’s important to dress to impress, so that you can make a good impression on your peers, your boss, your customers–whoever.
For my first day outfit, I wore one of the more office chic dresses I have (and Tania has too!), a cardigan in case the office air conditioning was out of control, and comfortable flats to navigate the busy city sidewalks. I jazzed things up a bit with a fun necklace as well. Here’s me, on my new fire escape, in my first day of work outfit:
Work was great and I’m excited to get going on my new projects. Best of all–after making burgers for dinner, Joe and I took a walk around the neighborhood, and got amazing ice cream sundaes at the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain to celebrate.
Do you dress up for your first day stuff?
