I’m very fortunate that I work in the industry I do. For my day job, I get to work in jeans and comfy tops because I do a lot of really, interesting things for my work.
As a social asset manager (meaning I manage social media strategy for brands and assist the brand’s teams in brainstorming, executing and measuring social media initiatives) there are days I am pent up by my laptop all day- but I’ve also been known to have to trek it across town from office to office to see clients, run out to get supplies for a photo shoot or spend my day behind a camera to shoot pictures for a Twitter giveaway.
Max, our little rescue pug, loves my new job. (Well new as of 7 months ago.) It usually means that when I get to work from my home office he has a warm lap to sit in, compared to the 1+ hour commutes I had at my last job.
He sometimes though, doesn’t realize that snoring on a conference call is so not cool. But, on the other hand, when I get to hop on a Google Hangout with colleagues, he’s been known to make an appearance.
I work from several offices depending on the day of the week- so I pack my work tote, my beloved Kate Spade black leather carryall, to house the essentials: Macbook, iPhone, Erin Condren day planner, Gel pens. As long as I have wifi, I can work from anywhere. That being said, I keep my go-tote ready to go in case there needs to be a change of venue.
I love that I can work from anywhere- but it also leaves plenty of room to forget a power cord or something in my other bag, so I try to keep it stocked.
My wardrobe staples: Black Kate Spade work tote, Ray Ban sunglasses. Though I’m a fashion amateur for sure, you can’t go wrong with the classics.
