Or skirts and dresses. I work from home full-time no longer and I'm ok with it. I actually was starting to miss people and wearing real clothes.
So the first thing I had to do was check out my closet. Yikes. I had gotten rid of a lot of stuff I didn't like a year ago but I hadn't tried on things. Lots more ended up in the donate pile and I was left with a pretty limited work wardrobe.
So armed with some coupons I headed out with the intent to get some pants, skirts and tops I could mix and match. I had 3 stores in mind: Old Navy to check out their 50% off clearance, NY & co and Express. In just about 3 hours I ended up with 2 skirts, 2 pairs of pants, 5 shirts, a sweater and a belt for about $250. I was very happy with that.
I waited on shoes till I started and I'm happy to say that on 5 days in I can wear all the high heels I want. I do need to go back to Old Navy to have them remove the security tag from the sweater and I need to exchange a shirt from Express that is just a bit too big.
So I'm doing the office thing again but this time I'm only buying stuff I love. No more "Well, its cheap and for work" because then I don't even look forward to getting dressed. I'm also not allowed to wear black pants every day.
