First, I would like to apologize for the lapse in my blog posts; however, it was all for good reason! Recently, I moved to Atlanta, GA, for a new job!!! That’s right, I packed my bags after living in Louisiana for three years due to law school and headed to Atlanta to continue my dream of pursing a career in law! It’s truly exciting to be in a new place, meeting new people, and experiencing new beginnings!
Now, let’s get back to business! Here’s my outfit from my first day. It’s definitely taken an adjustment getting used to the weather here, in Atlanta…talk about Brrrrr!!!!
I work in a business casual environment, so the dress code is a little more laxed than business professional. However, still be cognizant of your work environment.
It’s Fall season so I layered a grey vest I purchased from Forever 21 with a pair of grey slacks from Macys, a sheer ruffle top and a grey jacket that I got a steal from, ROSS…yes I said ROSS! For only $12 bucks! Sometimes you find the best bargains in Ross. Caution: MUST HAVE PATIENCE! LOL.

Since it was a cold day…Brrrrr, I decided to wear a long sleeve BCBG Max Azria denim top with faux leather collar, black denim jeans, a Forever 21 bomber leather jacket and black Enzo leather boots paired with gold accessories of course (Gold Nixon watch, Michael Kors bracelet, gold necklace, and gold Swarovski Crystal studs)!
Whether you’re an upcoming or seasoned professional, make sure you have a mentor to guide you in the next phase of your career.
I have phenomenal mentors all across the country and whenever I’m in their city, I always make sure to reach out!
Ms. Brianna E. Williams, Esq., is no exception. She truly is a blessing! It was great seeing Brianna in Atlanta, GA, this weekend!
I absolutely love the jacket I wore to breakfast with Brianna because of its versatility. I caught a great sale at Zara. The jacket goes well with a dress for work, slacks and even with a pair of cute jeans and pumps! Unfortunately, the jacket is sold out, but I managed to find a few similar ones for all budgets! Happy Shopping!

P.S. If you’re ever in the Atlanta area, make sure to visit Thumbs Up restaurant in East Point. They have the most amazing breakfast. The pancakes are huge!
