Working Girl x 4

-->Since graduating from college almost two months ago (eep… time flies!), I have been in the hunt for “professional” clothes, shoes and bags.  When I was in college (read: two months ago) I never really saw the point of collecting pieces that could be useful when I began working.  I always told myself I didn’t need that or that I had plenty of clothes I could wear to work.  While that is partially true, I find myself struggling to find the perfect outfit to wear.

During my last two years of college, I worked in the University Athletic Association.  The office was pretty casual (read: chinos and a cardigan).  And since I was a student and had to walk to work each day, I was able to dress pretty casual for work.  They understood that I had to walk a long distance in the very warm Florida weather…  As long as I wasn’t wearing shorts or jeans, I was usually okay.  But, I have quickly learned that is not always the case.

I am currently working four part-time jobs (while hunting for the right full-time position).  Each of these jobs requires a different level of business-attire.  Two of them are pretty casual (read: jeans are acceptable) and the other two require a more typical business look (or at least business casual).  That being said, I am in the search of my perfect go-to business look.  I am slowly adding pieces to my wardrobe, but need to do a bit more shopping to have a better business-appropriate closet.

Here are a few of my current go-to pieces.

J.Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Navy | J.Crew Factory Skinny Calf Hair Belt | Tory Burch Reva Flats
Loft Ponte Ankle Pants | Vince Camuto 'Elmay' Pump
For those of you working girls, any tips on style in the work place?

  1. great picks! I'll be graduating in a few months but I used to wear business casual to several internships! J.Crew pants and a blazer can go a long way!

  2. I think those are some great pieces - you'll be able to pair them with tons of stuff!
