first day of work.

First day!Today was my first day at my new job! I was nervous and excited, as expected, and couldn’t sleep last night, but it turned out to be a very relaxed, easy-peasy day, filled with trainings and readings, having lunch with my new team, and ID picture adventures.

Yup, it was also picture day, so I decided to maybe look nice. This outfit of the day was brought to you by Target (sunglasses, cardigan, and bag), random beach shop in Huntington Beach (zig zag top), Banana Republic (skirt – my gift to myself when I got the job offer!), and Nordstrom Rack (flats). I also accessorized with, as my Mom would call it, my ‘inheritance’ (sapphire necklace) and a handmade wrap bracelet. You’ll  be glad to know that I brushed AND flat ironed my hair, too. So how did my ID turn out? As expected, a little gross. C’est la vie!

And now some tips for your first day:

  • Wear layers – it could be chilly, it could be warm in your new office
  • Prepare snackage and/or do some research on eateries around the area
  • Bring hand wipes – to tidy up your new workspace

How do you prep for a big day? Comment below!

Local markets are my kind of tourist attraction. Crafternoons are my favorite. Good food makes me dance.

    Can’t believe how cute you look for your first day, in January, in California (lucky!)! My first day tip would be to try to remember everyones name that you are introduced to, they will be super impressed the next time you see them and you remember!
