I met with a professor from college a few weeks ago to discuss my new job and before we left she mentioned to me that my hair makes me look like I'm still in HS and need to cut it... and buy clothes that make me look way older. I'm a little bummed. I love my hair and I've only recently learned how to actually make interesting and nice outfits -- I don't want to suck all the creativity out of it! Anyone else get this advice? Speaking of clothes and her advice... what would be appropriate for a first day outfit that is pretty but comfortable, and where do you all shop for younger, affordable professional clothes? I'm on a budget!
