Those First Day Fashion Jitters & Anthropologie GIVEAWAY

7:00 PM


Dress - ASOS
Shoes - New Look
Watch - Fossil
Bag - Primark

As you may know from my post about 5 things I learned since graduating college, I recently started my first full-time job! (#adulting) Lucky for me, I was returning to an office that I had worked in before, so I was already used to the casual, but appropriate attire. Still, I wanted to look good and feel good on my first day!

I chose this black and white striped ASOS bodycon dress that I had gotten in a recent order, but hadn't had an occasion to wear it on yet. It feels so comfortable and great on, which I don't normally experience in bodycon dresses, so that was a huge bonus. On top of that, the asymmetrical look added length to the dress, so it wasn't too short for the office. All of that combined made this the perfect dress.

I paired the dress with my new New Look gladiator sandals that I shared on Instagram first. I got them in a size too big because they were out of my size, but I'm still obsessed and wear them practically every day. Because I take lunch and a thermos to work every day, I'm using my new (I went on a bit of a shopping spree a couple weeks ago...) Primark bag that was under $20! What. A. Steal.

And, I've never been a watch person before, but I always said I would become one when I started working. Well, not only did I start working, but I found the most beautiful watch at Fossil that I got on mega-sale at an outlet. Um, yes please!

Now, I opted for ASOS for my first day outfit, but I'm also a huge fan of Anthropologie all year round for both clothes and stationary. Because Anthro is one of my favorite stories, teaming up with bloggers for an Anthropologie gift card giveaway seemed perfect. Following me on Twitter and Instagram will give you entries, so go ahead and test your luck below!

  13. I've never been a watch person before either but I got mine for the fashion rather than a job haha #priorities. Love the pairing of the dress and gladiator sandals, it's so cute. Normally when I wear a casual dress I pair it with a pair of Converse and I really need to get out of that habit!

    1. Hey, nothing wrong with that! I wanted to get one originally for fashion, too, so no judgment haha. Thank you! I love the look of a dress + Converse, too! I just don't have any :(

  14. I remember seeing you in this dress on Instagram and immediately fell in love with it, it looks SO good on you and the fit and style are definitely office appropriate. I'm also loving your watch, I'm really loving the look of oversized faces and thinner bands, I need to get one myself! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and such a great giveaway you're hosting! I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. You're so sweet, Jalisa. Thank you!! I think the asymmetrical style definitely helped keep it office appropriate. Yes! I love that style for watches, now that I'm getting more into it :) I hope you find one you love! You too!

  15. First of all, congratulations on your new job! That's a beautiful dress and a very versatile one too. You can easily add a blazer to it and it turns into a more cooperate look.

    1. Thank you! Absolutely, a blazer would make it much more formal, especially since the dress is black and white. My office is more casual, but it can easily be transformed for other workplaces' dress codes.
