Workin and stuff....

I miss you all terribly :( As you all know, I started my "normal" office job this week....I wanted to come by and post and let you all know how it's going. So here it goes....
Number One.....I forgot how boring it is to work in an office for eight hours a day. Don't get me wrong, I am so grateful that I got an extra job, but really? Why does it have to be so boring?

Number Two......I was really looking forward to seeing what the girls are wearing in the office these days so I could be inspired and share. Not gonna happen. I forgot that the staples to a conservative office are four things: black flats, black heels, black pants and gray pants. I haven't been in an office for five years and it is sadly still the same. There are about three girls who I can say know how to work that fashion fabulousness and one of them is pregnant. I am soooooo going to try to talk her into a picture so you can see her. She is adorable! :)

Number Three.....I am so torn with if I want to get a permanent job doing this for the double income, (I'm currently temping). On one hand, I could really use the money for all of that debt, but on the other hand, I cannot imagine my life for the next I don't know how many years working in an office like this. Everyone is so nice to me, but I so miss my kids and my life. Input would be awesome :)

Number Four....I have not had the time to network with my girls like I was before. Sooooo....if you're a blogger with over one hundred followers and are interested in doing a post for me in an item from my store, email me! jenpolo1979@yahoo.com. I figure this is the easiest way :)

Soooooo....I leave you with a few pics of clothing that I'm seeing in the office everyday, I'm disappointed and I probably shouldn't be....Oh, and the BTW, these are not meant to be cute, just the truth.....


Yeah, I do have like 2 pairs of these but I try to mix it up a bit...


I'm kinda over these...


Same thing, I like khaki pants, just not every other day.....


Basic black top...


Basic cotton top....


:(


I know lots of girls wear these, but they really do bore me.....

So I'll be back soon to update you with what I'm wearing to work. I would have taken pics already but I have been getting up at 4:50am every day and still have not had the time. Grrrr........

Be sure to comment, let me know what you think about the post and the pics. Again, these are not meant to be things that I like, they are things that I have been seeing every day. Have a wonderful week :)

  1. The work clothes make me sad :(
    Fortunately I get away with quite a bit in my office. I wear fishnets, animals prints, bright colours etc all the the. lol, I stick out a bit because everyone else mostly dresses pretty casual.

  2. They make me sad too :( I think if we worked in the same office, we would be friends just because I would approach you and tell you how cool you look :)

  4. Aw, I'm sorry hun! :( That sounds so tedious--think of it this way though--it's just a stepping stone to doing what you love, right?? :)

    As for the work clothes--I'm sure you're setting the stylish and chic example! Maybe your office will have a style revelation! :) The office I was working at was with all older conservative women and men (50+) but I didn't let that stop me! :) Have fun with it! :)

    Good luck Jen! Keep your spirits up and keep us updated! :)

  5. Ah is that what I have to look forward too! I'll be in an office soon too but will try really hard to wear boring office clothes...lol I'm
    already starting to plan put my outfits! Jen I so feel you on the struggle between working & making good money & having your freedom & time. Currently I'm not working & funds are low, but I do love the freedom i have. Even though I don't have lots of money I have been very creative with shopping & other things. It's hard because I need to make more $ but I do kinda dread the long office hours! It's tough but in the end you need to do what's best for you & your family. Making money is good but being happy & enjoying your life is better. Oh I would love to help ya out girl I'm
    not yet at 100 followers but close so let know if you want me to do something for you!

  8. The shoes! What a travesty :( I think you should go in there guns (clothes hangers?) blazing and whip them all into style shape lmao!

    Sad to hear that you're not enjoying your job as much as you'd like. Having never had a job, I've yet to experience the dullness that is work. I hope you have a good weekend :)

  10. Thanks Curvy Girl Chic! No worries, it will not stop me! Over half of them are 50+, so you know :)Veronica, thanks for the post, you made me feel better! I do love my freedom but if I didn't do this for now, I would be filing bankruptcy soon and I would do anything to prevent that. As soon as I am able to crawl out of my self made hole though, I will be back at home and believe that. FB me! I would love for you to do a post for me! <3
    Thanks Bethamint! :)
    Stiletto, I can so see you pushing it! Glad you can relate! Yesterday I felt like I was pushing the envelope when I wore that floral dress that I posted about with some heels! hahaha :)
    You're too funny Stephanie! I just may have to try that thing with the clothes hangers, haha :)
    Elle, haha! Pretty conservative. I'm working for a business office that handles the finances for quite a few different hospitals. Hospitals=scrubs :) I'm kidding, but some people are pretty close to it! :)
