Hello there strangers!
It really feels like I haven't blogged in an absolute age. I think it has been a week since my last post or something like that... Naughty aren't I? But you have to let me off, because it is all due to the fact that I have now entered the world of work. That's right, I, GabriellaSofia, am now an official grown-up, who pays taxes, and works 9am-6pm and wears many pencil skirts and peep-toe shoesies. And you know what? I'm loving it!
So, what does a Recruitment Consultant at the Phones 4u Head Offices wear to work? Well, now you're asking... On my first day, I wore the same little outfit I wore to my job interview because I figured, 'Hey, if it made a good impression on that day, it will now too!' This was the dress:
As I started on a Thursday, and Friday is own-clothes day (I wore my black bodycon skirt, grey tights, black booties and slouchy Topshop jumper also in gray) I didn't have to panic about what else to wear until the Monday morning. I had the whole weekend to plan. Of course Monday morning rocked around and I was zombifiedly exhausted as I was getting ready and hadn't really planned what to wear. Plus, my hair looked terrible so I had to put it into a bun and my eyes were bothering me so I couldn't put my contacts in, meaning I looked like this:
Geek-chic could we call it? Nerd-girl office-girl more like. I'm spec-sy and I know it. Nonetheless, I liked this outfit because the navy dress (Dorothy Perkins, a steal at only £22) is made of a soft cotton-like material and I was able to accessorize adequately being all matchy-matchy with my colours. Grey glasses, cardi, tights and Nine West peep-toes were off-setted by my brown belt and brown hoop necklace whilst my earrings were almost the exact same colour as my dress. Considering the outfit was a bit out there personality-wise, I think it did the trick, looking smart but being comfortable and having a real GabriellaSofia injection of fun thrown into the mix too...
What do you think about this outfit? Would you wear such a stand-out look in your first few days of working for a new company? What would you wear in an office environment whilst also trying to incorporate your own personal style?
Let me know...
Love and snuggles
