These days, when anyone asks me what I "do," an awkward moment is almost always guaranteed. The word unemployed has such a nasty ring to it. Also, the word blogger is less impressive than I might hope.
However, hope is on the horizon! I've had a couple of interviews so promising that I've starting thinking about my business wardrobe. What I've discovered is that I have nothing to wear. Literally. I haven't had to dress "business" since about twenty pounds ago, and all that remains are some sad mis-shapen pants and an ill-fitting button-up with flared sleeves.
So, this is an example of an outfit that is not office appropriate.
occasion: casual lunch with mah hubby / shirt: Gap (last worn) / jeans: Gap (last worn) / shoes: Nine West (last worn) / scarf: H&M (last worn) / purse: thrifted Gucci (last worn)
I've been scouring the internet (i.e. clicking through the Kendi Everyday, Cardigan Junkie, and A Dash of Spectacular archives) for business wear inspiration. The only thing that really stuck was a sudden and profound urge to wear a scarf. Now that I have that down, I might try working on slacks.
