So, last month, in preparation for heading back to work a took a hard look at my closet and realized I have close to nothing left for work. You may think I am being dramatic, but I purge my closet a lot. Plus, I haven’t had a reason to wear non-maternity work clothes for almost 2 years. The few items I had were definitely outdated and even a little dusty. It was essentially back to the drawing board.
After taking advantage of some of the killer January sales, I think I have curated a new mix of items perfect for my business casual office. But, besides being perfect for my day job, each item works for another aspect of my life. Closet space is slim in our house, so to justify buying anything, I only buy things that can transition to either casual weekend or evenings out too.
Lastly, going back to work after having a baby is a huge deal, and there will plenty of things I will be worried about (like getting to work on time) So, having a mix of items that can work on the fly is just what the doctor ordered.
