If you know me, you know that I'm as far from office appropriate as a person can possibly be. The checklist that runs through my head when I go shopping goes something like, "Can I wear this without a bra? Is it cropped? Does it cover my butt? Yes? Sweeeet." 

A big reason why I can't do hardcore corporate world is because of this; I like dressing the way I dress and it's hard for me to change that. Luckily for me, I work at a start-up and we emphasize the casual in business casual. 

In an attempt to be savvy with my money since real life costs so damn much (LIKE WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH TO BE ALIVE?!), I've decided that I'm going to challenge myself to re-wear this blazer -- that was gifted to me from a previous internship -- and these $20 Report flats that I found at Macys for the rest of this work week. Re-wearing is the new black, right? 

Since it's Monday and I worked all day yesterday at my other job, getting up was more difficult than it was getting into these jeans. This was about as much effort as I could summon for the day. So I kept it super simple, with my favorite Alexa Chung-inspired button up and sunnies to cover up those sleep-deprived circles. Completely office appropro, even I was surprised to see myself in jeans when the sun's out. Check back to see how the rest of the week goes!
