I am back after a bit of a break. I’ve been off the scene for a while trying to work some things out personally and professionally.
Almost a year ago my company called a big town hall meeting and to let us know that they would be going virtual and that our office would be closing by the summer of 2018.
This change would impact everyone from the top of the food chain down to the bottom.
To some the impact was relatively minor but to others it was major.
I was part of the latter group. Unfortunately, the members of my group were working positions that were not able to go work from home. We were told by upper management not to worry because we would all be placed into new WFH positions. Some would be placed into new positions within the same department and others would be placed into new positions within different departments
Of course, despite assurances from upper management we all worried. For those who were already working from home, the worries stemmed from the high probability of being placed under new management.
For those who weren’t already working from home but whose positions would transfer to WFH(like it or not), there was also the added worries of having to find a space in their homes suitable for a home office, along with the fear and possibility that working from home might not work out for them
And finally for the rest of us with out a WFH position, we were faced with all of the above worries along with the burden of not knowing for sure where we would land or even if we would land at all within the company.
I am happy to say that all ended well. The company came through and everyone was placed in a WFH position…including myself.
So now that I am WFH again, I am overjoyed because I love working from home and I love what I do!
While working from home definitely has a huge impact on my work wardrobe, it doesn’t eliminate my need for a dedicated work wardrobe.
Because my WFH position requires daily scheduled and unscheduled video conferencing, working in my robe and Pjs is not an option.
In addition to eliminating a few pieces that I no longer need or want to wear in my current setting, I have been incorporating a few new pieces that I would probably have never worn to my former brick and mortar office.
Which leads me to the featured look of this post. I call this look “Boss Babe”.
To achieve this look, I combined a pair of Teal colored skinny jeans that I grabbed on sale, a fitted tank top and a white thrifted Tahari blazer.
I love this outfit because it can easily go from day to night by throwing on a pair of heels and letting the hair down.
