Favourites Friday No.87

There’s such a relief when I get around to writing my Favourites Friday post. It means the weekend is just around the corner and I get to focus on all the good things. And this week it means putting work behind for a few days.

What to Wear to Work This Week

As a new member of the working world, I have discovered a lot about my closet in the last week. No longer is it 8am lectures in leggings and layered sweatshirts with a traveler of coffee. It’s time for real pants, real tops, and coffee mugs.

I’m two weeks into my job and I already have figured out exactly what outfits work with the dress code and keep me comfortable from 7:30-4:30. It’s an art, trust me.
