Blogging is a dangerous business for me: spending hours browsing online shops tempts me to whip out my debit card and click “order.” Usually, I gather enough self control to realize that I do not, in fact, need a sports bra with the city skyline printed on it or a bracelet infused with the Earth’s elements no matter how unique and cute they are, but last week I decided to be a little frivolous and indulge my impulse!! I bought a pair of grey sandals from Zara after I found myself repeatedly clicking the link to their page on Zara’s website in a previous post of mine.
The shoes only shipped to my house last week, and I’ve already worn them 3 times, earning me the nickname Twinkle Toes by some friends! The first time I wore the shoes was also my first day of work (ah!), so they were an instrumental piece in my very important first-day-of-work outfit. I opted for a simpler outfit with minimal accessories since the sandals are bejeweled. I lovingly refer to them as foot jewelry.
I am an intern at CoCommunications Marketing and Public Relations where I mostly scour online and print publications for articles published about any of our clients. I really, really enjoy my job; I am learning a lot about what works and what doesn’t in the marketing/public relations field, which is my intended major in college.
All of the girls at the office are very stylish, but not business-formal, which was perfect for me. I fit right in on the first day in my dark wash chambray shirt (similar), black ribbed jeggings (similar), and flashy sandals. I even got a compliment on my jewelry (bracelet and watch)! I couldn’t ask for a better work environment, and my coworkers are so helpful and friendly. We’re running a corporate 5k tomorrow! (I am very excited and very nervous at the same time, yikes)
