Proof that I Remix



cami & shoes: Target ($9, $20) ~ jacket: Marshall's ($24) ~ pants: Century21 ($35) ~ belt/scarf: from a dress ~ bracelet: DIY

Date: June 8, 2011
Ensemble message: This was a crazy week with little time to think about clothing.  No major meetings or presentations, just keeping my nose very close to the grindstone.  Luckily this outfit came together and looked nice enough to photograph!  This is also proof that I remix... just the week prior, I wore the same exact top and jacket.  I was a little surprised because normally I space out clothes that I remix, but also proud to finally have a closet where I can literally pull out a few of my favorite pieces and have a decent looking outfit :)

Staying Cool



shirt: Anthropologie (gift) ~ skirt: Gap Outlet ($19) ~ shoes: Nine West Outlet ($27) ~ necklace: Aerie ($5) ~ cuff: gift

Date: June 7, 2011
Ensemble message: I wore this during a (thankfully) brief hot & humid spell.  Days like that are always hard to dress for, because the temperature in the office can vary drastically from one part of the building to another.  This outfit proved to be just right: the loose fitting blouse was cool but also covered the top half of my arms, and the skirt allowed for airflow but came to my knees.  I tossed on a fun, colorful necklace and was ready to go!



What do you wear to work on really hot and humid days??

Measure Success in Hugs

jacket: Marshall's ($24) ~ cami & jeans: Target ($9 & $14) ~ sandals: Nine West outlet ($25ish??) ~ watch: NY&Co ($20) ~ cuff & necklace: gifts

Date: June 3, 2011
Ensemble message: This is the face of pure, unadulterated RELIEF!  When I started my new role at the Day Job back in April, I was tossed into several projects midstream.  One project was to organize and facilitate the summer intern orientation.  These photos were taken the day after orientation ended.  I believe the overall experience was a success, as measured by the number of hugs I received as the interns departed for their final office locations ;)  I have to say, helping out with an internship program is one of those areas of HR that takes so much time and energy, but it seriously might be the most rewarding.  I also get to benefit from the program by having an HR intern of my own... so I will try to write a post sometime this summer about hiring and managing an intern!




Oh yeah, not to ignore the obvious, but I'm also back... for the long haul I hope!  Did you miss me these past couple weeks?  While I didn't have time to post, I did take multiple outfits shots that I can't wait to share with you!
