This week, I began my new job. I’m still working for the same company, but I’ve transitioned from an engineering role to a commercial role. It will be a nice change of pace for me since I was in the same position for about 6 years. (Has it really been that long? I’m starting to feel old.)
It’s been pretty fun hearing the responses of my colleagues. I’ve had several congratulatory remarks and some words of encouragement, but the most interesting to me was one I heard no less than three times: “Oh, you’ll be good at that. You present well.” Huh? Is this a common thing to say to people, and I’ve just missed it all this time? Is it just me, or does “presenting well,” sound like something you’d say about a show dog or good graphical design. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m taking it as a compliment, and I appreciate it. I just don’t know exactly what it means. I’m assuming it means I come across as a professional (either in dress or in speech). Still… it struck me as a little odd.
On another note, can I just say how much I love this dress (worn as a top in these photos)? It’s so on trend and so versitile. I can’t wait until it warms up just a little more and I can wear it without a cardigan.
Here’s the same outfit without the skirt:
