Love the bottom one, althoush I would have to hem to get rid of the fray for work.  Not allowed.Smiley Happy

 

Thanks @lolakimono .  I got the black and am in TOTAL shock because this line isn't what I usually wear, I looked at Joan Rivers, "no go".  Thank you again!Smiley Happy

I may need some "work" tops.  I am starting a part time job next week, 3 days per week, in a local jewelry store.

 

When I worked in the school district, June thru August, I dressed very, very casually.  Like Fresh Produce casual clothing.  It's been 17 years since I had to wear presentable clothes in the summer!  And makeup!  I may have to rethink this!Woman Wink

 

So I will see what J.Jill has and then wait for their sales.  I won't need much, just a few tops.

I really need new Spring/Summer tops.  I needed them last year but decided to put it off.  I can also use some crop pants.  If budget allows, a new pair of Birkenstocks.


@ScrapHappy The shoes should come in here with Sally, assuming she still does them.  They're often at a special price and easy pay.

 

You might want to look at Land's End now.  They have 40 percent off with their code.  I know @lolakimono really likes them.


That's a really good sale at LandsEnd, because it includes free shipping in addition to the sale prices.  I just added two Supima tee shirts to my collection.

@roeroe1005 If you're going to work in a jewelry store, I would suggest dressing like the mgrs you saw when you interviewed.   

I taught 37 years, job coaches my students, keeping higher ed as the first step, and upon retirement went into retail sales.  I have worked in jewelry for almost 5 years for Belk.  Jewelry stores here are very suit oriented.

 

I am told now I'm my town's top stylist.   Please let me know if I can  help you.  I would suggest you begin by looking at slacks and blazers in your closet and trying them on.

The same thing I want every year! The baggy shorts, cargoes or boards, like the boys wear!

@ECBG,

thank you for your advice.  I will take you up on your offer if I have questions!

 

I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue in their jewelry department for 20+ years as a part timer.  

 

When I worked in the school district, I was in the main office - basically the first person everyone would see when they came in.  So I always dressed; not like my corporate days, but I made sure I dressed appropriately.  In the summer, when things were very quiet with no students/parents, etc, I dressed very casually, as the whole administration did.  But come the first day of school, I was back in my dresses and skirts.  

 

Being a NYer, my uniform is mostly black pants, black skirtsWoman Wink.  I love the J.Jill Wearever collection and that's where I would buy 99% of my work clothes.  Since October, I have been subbing as a teacher's aide in one of our schools that houses autistic students.  You have to see how everyone dresses, I'm in leggings and a casual top and I still look overdressed!  

 

The hardest part will be figuring out shoes again.  I'm not used to standing 7 hours a day anymore.  What brand do you find comfortable?
