New Job, New Outfit. Naturally.

I just started a new day job as a digital product manager (what is that you, you ask?) at a pretty cool agency in DC.  Naturally it feels a little like the first day of school.  It may not happen once a year anymore (hopefully), but it certainly has the same sense of new beginnings – what will I do, where do I go, will I make friends, and most importantly, what do I wear??   Naturally, I’ve been shopping for…
