Work Wardrobe

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I appreciate all of your kind words regarding my last post. It means more to me than you know.  Tyler and I went to Raleigh Saturday and were able to spend time with close friends.  So many of our friends have moved back there for work.  The town has certainly grown on me in the past few years.  We went shopping yesterday so I could find a few extra things to take with me to wear for my chapter consultant travels.  It's hard to pack a whole semester worth of things in 2 suitcases.  I can't believe I leave a week from today!  I wrote back in March about my exciting news of finding out I was hired by Phi Mu and given this amazing opportunity

I wanted a few more versatile pieces to wear while I was traveling this next year.  I found some great pieces that I can incorporate into my wardrobe that will carry me through most of the fall.

I found this adorable dress at our Banana Republic in Wilmington.  I immediately fell in love with it because I'm obsessed with wearing yellow.  I'm 5'2 so I have to have petite sizes from here.  The Wilmington store doesn't carry petite so I tried to order it when I got home and OF COURSE the one size that was out of stock was my size.  The Streets at Southpoint had one dress left in my size.  I couldn't pass it up.

I've also been eyeing this blouse from Banana Republic and finally broke down and bought it.  It is very comfortable and I can wear it with so many things I have.  

Between all the recruitment parties I will be attending where I will be standing the whole time and business meetings, I thought I needed a pair of comfortable pumps.  I found these Ivanka Trump low-heel pumps yesterday at Nordstrom.  I wanted something that I was comfortable in walking around in all day.  I tried on many different nude pumps but these were my favorite.  

I also found this skirt at Nordstrom.  I have a lot of tops that will go with it so I thought it would be perfect to take with me in my suitcase.  It was such a good price that I just couldn't say no.  

I hope y'all have a good rest of your Monday!
