I have wonderful news! At long last, after months of searching and waiting for the right thing to come along, I am employed. I got a job as a graphic designer in the fashion industry! First day jitters were expected by choosing an outfit was really hard. I really wanted to look professional and fashion forward but didn't wanna lose my cheerful and carefree vintage sensibilities I always keep in my everyday wear. My best weapon for moving casual/everyday over to work attire has been the work blazer. It's the perfect thing to sling over a dress, skirt or pants to give the whole look a more professional feel without losing the rest of your styling.

I think my favourite fall trend right now is knee high socks. They are beyond adorable and these ones sent to me from ASOS are fantastic! They're bright teal and metallic shimmer are a statement maker all on their own but combined with a super duper pair of pumps I feel like I can take on the world. Perfect little addition for a working girl taking on the fashion industry on a day to day basis. I had a lot of fun styling the outfit with different colors as well. I'm confident that I'm not gonna lose brights and color blocking come the fall so finding little ways to bring neons and luminous fuchsia's into everyday work wardrobe has been an exciting challenge.
