News + Hello Monday Linkup

Hello blog friends!

I can finally let the cat out of the bag- I'm starting a new job soon!  It's been in the works for a couple months, so it's very exciting to finally be able to chat about it.  I'm transitioning from integrations to data & analytics.  I'm also switching to a real business casual environment.  My current gig describes the dress code as business casual, but flip-flops, jeans, and t-shirts are totally acceptable.  While I'm partially excited, I'll miss having the option to show up in Birks and destructed boyfriend jeans πŸ™ˆ.  I'll also miss my coworkers.  Many of my coworkers have also become dear friends, and I will really miss seeing them on the daily.  

As soon as I accepted the offer, I start shopping for a few more business casual staples (no jeans! the travesty!)  I'd been eyeing this blazer at Ann Taylor, and it was an additional 50% off (and is actually an even better deal now!).  So I picked up the blazer and skirt on a whim, and I actually really like them together!  Plus how cute will the skirt be with maroon tights in the winter?

Ann Taylor skirt [exact I'm wearing a 'Tall']  //  Ann Taylor blazer [exactalso love]  //  Gap tee [similar]   //  Velvet Mary Janes [exact]  //  Dagne Dover tote [exact]  //  $12 sunnies [exact] // Nadri earrings [exact]

I also plan to wear this blazer and skirt with this supersoft wine colored tee and this pale blue sweater.  I think the jacket would be super cute with skinny navy trousers too.  Basically, the mix and matching options are endless πŸ‘
