I do contract work, but I've been very fortunate to work for the same company for the last 2 years. Well we hit a lull with the trials for them, so I found myself with some time on my hands. So I picked up another short-term contract job that should wrap up right before the wedding. Perfect! As a result, my outfits are probably going to be a bit more conservative until I figure out what is appropriate at the new office. Plus, I've been sick for more than a week now, so all I want to put on are my comfy pants and a t shirt, so expect to see a lot more pants than usual too. I hope you don't get too bored.

What I Wore To Meet New Coworkers:

What I Ate At the New Office:

2010-03-08 food

First day at the new job, so I had no idea what the kitchen situation was. So I didn't bring any food. They had Panera catered for us for breakfast, and I actually went there for lunch too. I thought I was doing pretty good on my lunch choice of a veggie sandwich and low fat veggie soup, but after checking out the nutrtion info online that night, I see that it was still higher in points than I expected. But the muffin! I had that as a snack and it just blew me away that it was more than 10 points and I didn't even eat the whole thing. Yikes!
  • breakfast: plain bagel (6) with plain cream cheese (3), water, Monster
  • lunch: 1/2 mediterranian sandwich (6), bowl low fat veggie pest soup (3), baked lays not the bread shown (3.5)
  • snack: 7/8 of a pumpkin muffin (10), juju hearts, not shown (9)
  • dinner: beef pho (13.5)

Total for the Day: 54 points, no exercise, still sick as a dog

Beef pho is one of my favorite foods EVER. Yum yum yum. Love it so much.

Gorgeous outfit, as usual. I want some white beads like that. Very pretty!

Totally Inspired said...

This is a good look on you.. and conservative too.

Kasmira said...

Best of luck with your new office and office-mates!

Panera is a sneaky place.

Sarah said...

Love the outfit, simple and so glam!!

Kari said...

The timing sounds perfect for you - good luck on the new contract!
I love seeing you in skirts and dresses, but I think you make your pants outfits equally put together and polished - something that I struggle to do - so I look forward to seeing you switch things up a bit. :) Your pretty black-and-white patterned outfit is a great start (and wow, your waist is TINY!)

HEy black and white is never dull to me! That pho looks delish!

Tina said...

marianna - thanks! I almost og t rid of these beads b/c I wasn't wearing them at all, but that changed over the last few weeks and I think they'll be good for summer. Maybe if you're a good girl, I'll send mine to you 1/2 way through the summer!

Totally Inspired - thanks.

Kasmira - thanks. So far so good with the new office. Although I did already get in trouble for talking too loudly. Oops.

Sarah - thanks!

Kari - aww. You are too sweet. And I think that you always look polished in pants too!

miss_e - True. Black and white is a classic. :)
