Double Duty

Would you find it odd if I told you I never met my boss? Weird that I've never sat across the table from someone that has been my direct supervisor for just shy of a year? Well, tis true!! (Crazy I know!) This is probably the first time in history where you can be a so close in your day-to-day yet so far in actual distance. Gotta love a virtual workplace! 

Well today that all changes! My boss is in town for the next three days - while we start deploying nationwide trainings. I am very excited, and oddly, very nervous. I know she likes me, she promoted me just a few months ago - but somewhere in the back of my mind I am wonder 'what if she doesn't like me?' Silly I know. 

And this evening also happens to be an event I am VERY much looking forward to!!! I am on the guest list and get to attend a private event at J.Crew, which will be attended by none other that THE Jenna Lyons! Fashion Icon, must dress in Crew and be CUTE! 

Now enter the BIG Dilemma. What does one wear?! Fashion Girl Problems, for sure!! LOL I am coming straight from work, no time to change, as I have meetings til about the time I need to hop in a cab and run across downtown. I need to be Corporate America & first-time-meeting boss cute aka appropriate, ie no jeans. And totally adorable for Jenna! (Plus whoever said dressing for the office to out after work was easy is a liar!) 

I'm hoping/planning to channel something like this! Layered up - sweater for work, off after. Lots of accessories, tons of bracelets and cute shoes! Plus, fun bright nails in OPI On Collins Ave {I'm heading to the J.Crew event with Danielle and Alaina, and we have permission to shoot pictures in the store, I'll share how it all turned out soon!} 

Clockwise: Grey Boyfriend Cardigan. Pyramid Heel Sandals. Layered Inspiration via Atlantic-Pacific. Geeky Watch.  Navy Dress. 

Am I the only one who has never met their boss? How do you dress for work to play?  


  1. Wow, that's so funny about your boss. I love every single piece you picked, I think you are gonna look stunning.
    And I so wished I was going with you to the JCrew event, you know me and my love for that place.

  2. ok, i can't get past jenna lyons being in town. can i suggest bringing an oversized handbag so that I can hide in it? or i may just have to stalk the store.

    either way, i think layering is a great idea and bring a quick change of shoes (if you can't go height all day like me), bring some extra crew bling and you are ready to go!!!!

    i am having same issue with tomorrow night as will be at an event with maria pinto. yikes!

    can't wait to hear how it goes. photos palease!

  3. Sounds like a fun event. I'm jealous! I worked for someone in another state once, but we met fairly often in person. Good luck today!

  4. Ahh wish I was coming to this tonight. Have so much fun, can't wait to hear/see how it goes!

  5. Jenna Lyons- what a treat! I can't believe you haven't met your boss. That's so crazy, but no doubt that she'll love you. Good luck and post pics!

  6. Have fun! That sounds like a great event! I unfortunately do see my "boss" quite often. I'm sure your boss will love you even more after meeting you in person, though!

  7. oOoOo lucky! have fun tonight :) & yes, you are the only one. hehe


  8. I had a job where I never met my boss. It was really strange but I wish I could go back to it! But that could have more to do with my new boss than the working environment. Good luck! You'll look hot no matter what!
