-- Every working girl needs a good jacket.

The good news? I've accepting a position as a music therapist! I opted for part-time, since I intend to keep teaching voice, singing, and developing some options that fall outside the scope of my employer's services. I will actually be traveling to my clients' homes, which will make dressing for work an interesting challenge - more on that later!

Because music therapy isn't exactly investment banking in the dress code department, I knew I didn't want to wear a "real" suit to my interview, which also involved playing instruments and singing. I also nixed my pencil skirts because I felt I looked too much like a vocal professor, and my prospective boss would have come through a college music program (and voice teachers are known for their drama -- not something I want her to think about). I settled on my unlined chambray jacket, a BR abstract floral top, and black, wide legged, cuffed trousers. My bits of fun (because I did want a bit style) came in the form of my pearl ear cuffs, and my ivory shoes -- peeking from beneath the serious trousers.

This blazer is great for summer A/C. Sorry about the wrinkly arms -- they aren't bunchy like this, unless I'm holding my phone.
2. Same outfit with slim pants and flats for singing in church
3. My near white out look, worn to a meeting and for errands.

And another daily outfit, thrown in just for fun:
4. Loft top (with double flounce peplum), BR Resin crop flares, Croc shoes (so comfy)

My new work will demand some outfit creation, and I'll be so happy to have the forum to help!
