What I Wore to Work – September 2023

Ahhhh – September 2023 was one for the books! From kicking off the month at the beach in Delaware for Labor Day Weekend to ending the month on a GREAT note with lots of professional development and volunteer opportunities and then spilling water on my personal laptop sadly, September 2023 was a good month despite being *just a* bit of a rollercoaster. My September 2023 work month kicked off with an in-person workshop on GenerativeAI which was an excellent opportunity to network and see some of my many great colleagues in-person. And, my September 2023 work month ended with an incredible Fall week working at home. Needless to say, September 2023 was a GREAT month professionally (!!!!!).

Initially with the start of September, I felt sad that Summer was coming to an end. As I’ve said before, Summer 2023 was an AMAZING Summer for me and blew it out of the park and truly changed my perspective on loving the season much more than I have in the past. HOWEVER, over time and specifically thanking a trip to Trader Joe’s (or two!) on this one, I started getting so so so so so excited for Autumn and the transition within my own wardrobe from Summer -> Fall. Oddly enough, I felt SO excited for Fall in June LOL yet not when the change of seasons actually occurred – ugh the irony haha! Now that it IS October, I am more than excited to be styling some bright Fall fashion work outfits (!!!!!).
