What I Wore Wednesday

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

As you may or may not know, I started a new job last week!  One of the first things I thought of was "Yay, I can participate in WIWW again since I won't be wearing shorts and t-shirts everyday!"

I work in a really casual office environment.  Most people wear jeans everyday, but since I've been stuck in jeans and shorts for the last three years, I've been trying to dress up a little bit.  I also needed some new workish clothes so I went shopping, which is why most of these items are new and why it's more fun to share them with you!

By the way, sorry for the craptastic photos - I took all of these as I was rushing out the door.

Day: Tuesday
Where: First Day of Work!!
Sequined tank: Gap (old)
Pants: Trina Turk (Thrifted. And they fit perfectly. It was a match made in consignment store heaven. I knew Trina Turk was a good brand, but when I got home and logged onto her web site and saw the prices of very similar pants to these - I was floored!  I paid $54 for them and they retail for $150-$200.  It's super exciting to find such a great deal!!)
Shoes: Payless (old)

Day: Wednesday
Where: Work
Lace shirt: Express
Tank: Dick's
Jeans: American Eagle
Wedges: Payless

This lace shirt is off-white so I had a hard time finding something to go under it.  Dark colors didn't look good and white kind of clashed.  Next time I wear it, I'm going to try something other than this bright green, though.  However, this shirt is a new fave - it's so cute and comfy!

Day: Monday
Where: Work
Earrings: Target (ack, they were a little too much with this outfit, I think)
Shirt: The Limited
Pants: The Limited ($15!!)
Darn-you-can't-see-my-shoes: Off Broadway - Jessica Simpson nude patent leather pumps.  They are adorable and will match everything I have in my closet, but boy are they TALL.  It took some getting used to walking in them.

Day: Tuesday
Where: Work
Peplum top: LOFT
Necklace: Groopdealz
Jeans: TJ Maxx
Shoes: Old Navy

I went into a LOFT for the first time a couple weeks ago, and it sadly didn't live up to the hype.  It was Memorial Day and they had practically nothing on sale.  I did find this shirt on their minimal sale rack and bought it because you can never have enough black tops, but I don't think I'll be sad if I skip this store the next time I'm near one.

Have a great day lovelies!
