Internship Look

Oasis button down shirt, $60
Pink cardigan, $33
Whistles cropped pants, £95
J Crew ballet flat, $190
Dooney bourke handbag, $268
AK Anne Klein water resistant watch, $65

I have less than three weeks until I start my internship, and I am already thinking of outfits to wear! I am a nerd, I know! The dresscode is business casual. So, the first day, I will go for something low key, and see what sort of reactions are received. I'll be working at an agency, and I do not want to look overdressed or make my clients feel uncomfortable around me.
I want to wear a simple black trouser (you can't go wrong with black) and ballet flats. I thought these peach ones from J.Crew were just adorable. I am also really big into sleeveless blouses lately.. meaning I have bought a handful over the past few weeks. haha Although inappropriate to wear alone, I would pair the blouse with a fun cardigan. I have been eying this particular one at Target recently. However, I can't justify spending over $30 for a cardigan at Target. Hey, I can be frugal sometimes!
Awhile back I bought a satchel from Kate Spade on one of their online same sales, and I will probably use that bag on my first day. The satchel can fit a whole binder in it and more! I purposely searched for a bag that could fit a binder/notebook, my overly large daily planner, and all of my daily needs in it. I spotted the bag above by Dooney & Bourke, and it is a great option as well (now I want it! haha).
Finally, I need to invest in a watch. I have been looking around, and I just can't seem to buy one. I don't use a watch.. I have my phone, I work at an office, and I always have a clock near me at school or at home, but I need to see the time for sessions. So, I will have to buy one eventually. 
Luckily, my mom briefly explained that she has a watch that belonged to my great grandmother. It just needs another battery. Hopefully I can get a battery for it and use that one! I am excited :)

I hope everyone is having a nice week! Tuesday's aren't very "happy," but at least it is almost the middle of the week!
I can't wait to watch the White Sox game tonight and drink some Moscato with my dad (although he doesn't drink Moscato haha).

  1. Love that internship look!

    So cute!


  2. Haha! I totally do the EXACT same thing when planning what to wear the first day of an internship. I think its great that you plan ahead. And if you wear that, you will most likely be the best dressed, lovely picks!
