Today marked day one of a new adventure in my career. I traded menswear for home decor and became a business analyst with Buyers Support Group. Putting my analytical skills to use and testing my attention to detail.
Excitement and nerves hit me hard last night as I was mentally preparing for my big day. Planning the first outfit can help calm the nerves – so that is what I did. What to wear in order to make a great first impression? Depends on the industry – but in the retail industry it feels like it is getting increasingly more casual. But I continue to have the “old school” mentality that you should “dress for the job you want”. So I planned a business professional outfit with a flare of my own personal style.
Jeans are okay at my new office – but I chose dress pants for the first day. Added a light sweater and some pointy toed sling back heels and a printed scarf to finish the look. Take a peek and feel free to “steal the look” for your first day. I got positive compliments in the office.
