Hi my pretties!
As you may (or may not) have noticed, I haven’t been so active on social media lately (for about a month) ..or on my blog either for that matter. This wasn’t because I was being lazy or bored of blogging but rather because I went through a bit of a low point recently and have been having health problems as well and I just wanted to keep my negativity away from everyone, hence why I’ve been in a bit of a shell lately. Just three weeks ago I turned 21 and I didn’t even get the chance to enjoy that properly, so I’ve been fairly quite for a while and away from social media and mainly just keeping to myself.. The good news is that I’m getting back on track now and I have some super exciting news coming you’re way soon including my first Instagram giveaway. So if you don’t already, make sure you follow me on Instagram (@prettiinpinkblog) to make sure you don’t miss any updates!
So recently (well actually about two months ago), I started a new job and I teased a picture of my first day outfit on Instagram (here).. This was three weeks ago and I was supposed to have uploaded the post the next day, but alas given my previous situation I wasn’t in any position to do so – so please forgive me.. I’ve finally gotten around to editing all the pictures and uploading them today so I hope you enjoy them! Since it was the first day and I wasn’t sure what to expect I wanted to make sure I didn’t overdress or underdress and I definitely wanted to make sure a bit of my love for colour showed through. So I put together my everyday Jeanswest jeans and a white tank with eyelet detailing from Forever New, my favourite pink wedges, my staple Colette Selma handbag and I finished the look off with a bright pop of magenta. This magenta blazer I scored from Valleygirl a few years back when I was in high school just $25 and I absolutely love the texture and feel of the fabric almost as much as I love the colour itself! For accessories, I simply went with my white gold heart set from Bevilles and a white watch with a thick wristband and mirror cutout detailing. My first day at the new job went much better than I imagined and I’m loving the staff I’m working with.. hopefully I’ll have a few more outfit shoot photos coming up on my blog from my work days.
I’d love to hear what your go-to outfit would be for a first day at a new job. Would it be a blazer + pants combo? Or would you go a bit more girly and wear a classy dress? Or is your workplace a bit more casual than that? Tell me in the comments below – I love reading them all!
P.S.: For those who are wondering, this isn’t my natural hair – it’s what my hair looks like after spending 1 hour with a GHD straightener.
Thanks for sticking by me, my pretties!
