Put a bow on it

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

Happy Friday! Today is my last day at my current job and we’re having an appreciation lunch for some departmental liaisons which means I’m only in the office half a day. What could be a better way to end six years here? Well, wearing my favorite bow dress certainly adds some extra joy to a day that will be bittersweet.

If you had told me seven years ago that I would be moving on to my second job in downtown Chicago and living in a two bedroom apartment in the city with an 8 month old puppy I would not have believed you.

I moved to the city area for this job six years ago and in those six years my life has changed so much. I’ve grown so much professionally and personally. I’ve learned skills I didn’t even know I had. I’ve made more friends in six years than I had in all of high school and college combined.


Everyone keeps asking me if I’m excited to start my new job and the answer is yes! I am looking forward to the new challenge which is not something I thought I would ever say about myself, either. I will certainly miss some of my coworkers and some of the perks of my current job but I’m ready to do something new.

As I mentioned on Monday, I don’t know what the new job will mean for the blog but hopefully you’ll stick around for the ride. I’m sure it will be fun for everyone!

    I just got here a week ago, so of course I’ll stick around a while!

    Good luck at the new job and I hope today goes well for you!

    I am so excited for you!!! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the new job!

    And so cool to think about where we end up versus where we thought we would! I was reading a blog post today about someone who turned 30 and she was listing all of these things she never thought she’d be doing now. So fun!

    This is so adorable! I love bow-tie print, and I love that you styled this lovely dress with red, blue, and gold. Great look!
