Most people go "Back to School" shopping around this time of year. For me, it's "Back to Work" shopping.
I've been in the professional world for just a young three years, but each position I held required me to dress in suits. You could open my closet and find about ten suits and a lot of button-downs and cardigans.
I am turning a 180.
I would describe my new office dress code as trendy/chic/business casual. Imagine my embarrassment when I showed up to my first interview in a pin-stripe suit and girls were there in leggings and tunics. Not to say that you shouldn't always show up to your interview in a suit, because you should, but it was a nice surprise to see that the dresscode was .... cute and comfortable!
All this to say that my typical fall shopping has changed. I haven't bought the first pair of trouser slacks. Not the first blazer. I definitely haven't bought any button-down shirts with collars. Instead, I am having a ball purchasing skinny jeans, tunics, fun dresses, chunky poncho sweaters, and slouchy boots! I tore up Old Navy yesterday! Here is one of new fall outfits -- at a great price!! Jeans: $20, Henley: $10, and Poncho sweater: $35
