Working Girl

2013-04-28_13-39-37

After graduating college, I was so excited to work in an office. I would get to join the masses in the business world, interact with clients, sit at an actual desk,  but most importantly-dress the part. I had always wanted to wear the modern version of a  “power suit.” It’s classy, sophisticated, intimidating and looks way better than my previous job’s uniform (“Bushmans” are never a good look). The day finally arrived when I landed my first job at a public relations firm and I proudly walked in wearing my new power suit. As the day went on, I didn’t feel intimidating at all, just uncomfortable. I didn’t feel like me. I quickly realized that the power suit was a uniform in itself. It had no character and clearly didn’t portray my own personal style. I decided to switch up my work wardrobe, taking my favorite everyday pieces and pairing them with office appropriate pieces. One of my favorite office looks is a chic dress, tailored blazer, statement necklace and heels. This is the perfect combination for spring, emphasizing bright colors and neutral pieces.
