A week before I started my new job, the husband had me shop for new set of work outfits. So I went to my favorite store in town, ROSS. Yes, I love to shop at Ross because they have the best deals on big brand names. I didn't know how my colleagues dress at work so I want to play it safe. I don't want to look overdressed but I don't want to look too casual either. I was lucky to find cheap tops and cardigans at Ross. I love layering because when it gets too warm I can easily take off my sweater or cardigan. Ross didn't have slacks that I like so I went to JC Penney next and checked out their pants selection. They have pretty great sale items as well but I think they are still too pricey for $32.00 a pair so I only got 3 pairs.
I have noticed that people at work like to dress very casual. Sometimes I think they are pretty much laid back for an office setting but I kinda liked it that way. I wear jeans and sneakers on Fridays, lol! Weather here in Montana can be very unpredictable so I always bring a light coat with me just in case. I really enjoy going back to work. Aside from the fact that there's something to look forward on paydays, I really love the idea of getting ready in the morning and dressing up for work. I have an excuse to shop for new clothes every weekend, haha! And that's what I have been doing. I buy at least 2 or 3 new blouses for work on Saturdays. But I try not to spend over $50.00 though and at Ross that is not difficult to achieve. I have not even gotten my full paycheck yet but I've been pampering myself already, lol! Thanks to my great financier, the hubby! I did promise to take him out to dinner when I get my first ever paycheck. I enjoy my work so much and I am really grateful for the opportunity to work again after 4 years of being a housewife and a stay at home mom.
