I need help

or a personal shopper, or something.

I went today to get some more clothes for work, since the 'I'm a student who always wears jeans and a hoodie' look won't work at my internship and I would have to start repeating clothes way too soon without acquiring some more. I spent at least 4 hours at the mall and various other stores and ended up with one pair of pants. One. And I can't even wear them because I have no brown shoes. And I think I may also be without any tops to go with them, but I'm not sure because I have, for some reason, no idea what goes with brown pants.

Dillards had a ton of stuff 50-75% off, and I still got nothing. Except 4 t-shirts, a hoodie, and coat all for Doug! I tried on at least 6+ shirts and 10+ pairs of pants in Dillards alone. I did find about 5 suits that I really liked, but my office is definitely too business casual for any of them. Is it weird that I kind of hope to get a suit-wearing job so I don't have to deal with this ever?

Is it possible that I am just not a business casual girl, that I can only comfortably live within the casual and suit realms?

Shopping advice, I need it. Or someone to just take my credit card and deal with this for me.

As a teacher, I have to say I have my "uniform"... the same style of pants in various colors, a rotation of shirts in different plain colors with a jacket over it (I have denim, khaki, white, black, brown suede, etc). I remember how hard it was to dress before I found my groove. I'm not saying I'm the most stylish thing my school has ever seen, but it is comforting knowing that I have a certain number of outfits I cycle through and I don't have to give much thought to getting dressed in the morning... save your creativity for going out! That's my advice!

Have you tried Cato in Highland yet. I go there everytime I'm in town, I LOVE it. There is always something on clearance, and if not, their stuff is really inexpensive anyway! Try it, you might like it! :)
