My past two workplaces have been extremely casual, I wore jeans every day. This new workplace is definitely more business casual. While I'm a little sad that my collection of designer jeans will now need to be saved for the weekend, I'm also excited to start dressing like more of a grown-up. Do you have any recommendations for new business casual pieces that aren't dull and stuffy? I want to make sure I am dressed appropriately for the office without losing style. I'm 5' 9" and a size 4, so I'm pretty lanky. I'm sure you get a lot of these submissions, thanks for your time. Hopefully you can help me out! Best, Veronica"
