working girl chic

Saturday, October 23, 2010

I can't believe it's been over a month since I left my work at home mom days behind and the planets aligned for me to get my dream job! Crazy. And, that's definitely helped the blogging :) LOL

When I first got my job, I went crazy picking up pieces for my working girl wardrobe, and one of my FAVORITES EVER is this ELLE Boyfriend Blazer I picked up at KOHL'S! Unfortunately it's not there anymore, but I swear I could wear this blazer everyday of my life. Sigh.

Here I am outside one of the hotels I am the Marketing Manager for (I have 3 Portland Airport Hotels), Aloft Portland! So chic and so fabulous....if I was a hotel, I would be Aloft. Check out the website I now work on at (wxyz is the bar of the aloft).

I'm a dork, I can't help it.

I think my favorite picture ever. LOL - thanks to my friend Trish for taking these shots of me! LOL

Outfit Deets:
Blazer - KOHLS Elle Boyfriend Blazer size 2x
Top - Sequin Tank from Torrid
Pants - Houston trousers Red 8 from Lane Bryant
