What to Wear: Work Wardrobe

Monday, January 27, 2014

I will be starting my first full-time job in two weeks. One of my biggest concerns (half kidding) has been what to wear to work. It can be tricky because as a fairly young adult, I want to look professional and mature, but I don't want to come across as a little girl attempting to look like a grown-up. Also, I've read about how some bloggers made the early mistake of buying work clothes that are too stuffy when in reality, dressing for the workplace can be fun and fashionable! Thankfully, I interned with the company I will be starting full-time with over the summer, so I have a pretty good idea about what is appropriate in that environment. 

I pulled together a few key pieces that are essential for the workplace. These items are simple but stylish, and they are great items to start your work wardrobe with. Small touches such as colorful heels or a bright red lipstick are good ways to make your outfit more youthful and fun!

Shop these items: 1. Excursion leather tote bag from JW Hulme (on my wishlist), 2. Velour blazer from Zara, 3. Black minnie pant from Jcrew (you could wear these everyday, I do!), 4. Gramercy mini watch from Kate Spade (simple and elegant), 5. Mira heel from Madewell, 6. Shiseido perfect rouge in "Sublime"/RD142.

Note: Thanks to my little sis for teaching me how to use Photoshop and Illustrator to create the collage above :)
