What I Wore Wednesday: Work Edition

When it comes to going back to work, one of the things I'm kind of excited about is getting to wear nice clothes again. Quite honestly, my SAHM wardrobe these past few years has leaned heavily on yoga pants and pajamas. Since those outfits won't quite cut it at an office job, I'm looking forward to pulling out some of the other clothes in my closet. (Truthfully though, on the mornings I'm working from home, pajamas may make a comeback!)

I thought I'd document my outfit for my first full day of work yesterday. (Last week I just did a few half days in and among volunteering at VBS.) Unfortunately, I decided to get Dave to take a picture shortly after I got home and Rachel decided that she couldn't bear to be separated from me just yet. So we did a few mother-daughter poses.
Then we tried an individual shot again, but Rachel photobombed it at the last minute.
So I thought I would tickle her, in hopes that she would run away from me and Dave could quickly snap a picture. The look of shock, and then complete laughter, is because my plan totally backfired and I ended up accidentally pushing Rachel over. #parentingfail
Fortunately, she thought it was hilarious, probably because she didn't land on the mess of blocks.
Finally though, I got a picture, by myself, documenting what I wore for my first full day of work in over four years.
t-shirt -- Joe Fresh
skirt -- American Eagle (but a handmedown from my cousin)
necklace -- fundraiser from Willem's school a few years ago

Needless to say, I don't think I'll be trying to get pictures of my outfits anymore :)


  1. Hahahaha- love the outfit, but love the struggle of getting a photo of it even more!!

  2. LOL! That is so funny! I do love the outfit though. You look so nice!

  3. Haha poor Rachel!! Hope your transition back into work hasn't been too rough! I'm glad you're excited about work clothes... I feel like I'm in a never ending battle to find work clothes!

    1. I'm pretty fortunate that my work place is fairly casual. I don't know that I'd go to work in shorts and a t-shirt but I can wear tank tops, jeans, and t-shirts which are nicer. But I'd probably pair the jeans with a fancier top, if that makes sense.

  4. Awe, work clothes. I still have a love/hate relationship with them...probably because I still couldn't fit into most of mine. ;-)


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
