Spring 2013 Wardrobe

It's Monday, Monday, Mondaaaaaay...sang no one ever. But alas, another work week is upon us. To help a little with the Monday blues, I'm guest blogging over at Lena B, Actually. Go check it out and enter to win a $15 Starbucks gift card. And while you're there, check out Lena's blog. She is a kick ass mama who has the cutest style, and two adorable kiddos.

Now onto a little fashion. At my new job we sell designer labels - DVF, Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, and other big names in the industry. The place I worked at before, people literally wore yoga pants to work. So while I have lots of cute clothes, some are far too casual. I don't feel like I am a the level of my co-workers.

I am still waiting on my first real paycheck (this Thursday, thank you baby Jesus!) and eventually will be taking advantage of the great perks (aka discounts) that come along with the current gig, but until then I'm adding some cute clothes from places I can afford like Forever 21, H&M, and Kohl's. Let's keep it real. Even though adding designer names to my closet will be accessible, I'll still always be a bargain shopper and look to these cheaper stores.

Check out the purchases I made this weekend:


Vera Wang leggings from Kohl's / Tank from Forever 21


Elle blazer from Kohl's / Khakis from H&M


Black pants from H&M / Top from H&M


This week I'll feel a little more fashionable and hopefully more confident with my attire. Fake it until you make it, right?

You got cute stuff!

I am no fashionista and I'd be all grumbles if I had to dress above my comfort level. It's awesome that you'll have access to great clothes at a discount though!

I just discovered this link-up and am so excited for it!

I just had a question though- there's another blog that does "Weekend Shenanigans" and they use the same way of entry (Linky Toosl)to link your blog post as you do, so I can't post it on any other blog once I've posted it here?

One of my biggest fears is getting a job where I have to dress up.
