A Learning Experience

Its officially the weekend which means I have made it through my first week as an intern! I'm looking forward to finally having two days to get out and do some things around the city; most days I'm too tired after to work to do more than grab dinner and collapse into bed. What I have learned from my first week here:
-Googlemaps is AMAZING. It has saved me from getting lost quite a few times so far
-Its inevitable that no matter what shoes I'm wearing, my feet will hurt after walking what seems like a zillion blocks doing errands for the company
-Apparently its normal to photocopy clothes so the factory knows what they look like when they go to make them
-The Q subway line is the express metro and DOES NOT stop at my station...instead it just zooms right through it
-Besides that, the subway really isn't as bad as everyone makes it seem, although I did encounter my first creeper today
-I need to start packing a lunch or I'm going to be BROKE (even more than I already am)...spending $7+ everyday is starting to add up
-NYU has its own frozen yogurt place in one of their dining facilities and its surprisingly very good

Now for today's outfit...

Occasion: Work
What I'm wearing: Forever 21 top, Gap Always Skinny jeans, Vintage bracelet, Urban Outfitters earrings, Isaac Mizrahi for Target sandals

The accessories: H&M sunglasses, Coach purse (2007)

My work is really casual, so I caved and wore jeans today. I'm going to try to make a point of not being this casual most days because I never know what kinds of places I will be visiting on errands and when there will be networking opportunities. First impressions are so important. But for today, it was nice to be comfortable. These are my favorite pair of jeans. I never used to like the way Gap jeans fit me, but the redesign they did in the Fall made a huge difference. These are my go-to jeans. Today I decided to include an accessories picture because I love this bag. I have had it for a few years now and have gotten a surprising amount of use out of it considering the color. I normally don't splurge on anything that isn't a neutral, but for some reason, I just had to have this bag. I saved up all of my tips from my first job and bought this beauty (with a 20% off coupon that Coach sometimes sends me). Clearly, it was a worthy investment...I'm still in love with it to this day.
