Internship Attire

IMG_4095 I am excited to say that I have a new job and have been back at work the past few days! It is a summer internship within the architectural realm, but dealing more with real estate and site development. I worried at first that my design background wouldn't translate well to the real estate world, but have been surprised at how much I enjoy the work. We have been going on site visits, meeting with the city, and I work on land plans using Illustrator both at home and in the office. I am loving it!

For work attire I am drawn to geometrics and neutrals. I like an outfit like this for work because it is professional, but still young and bold. I'm also carrying one of my favorite notebooks by Quattro. The paper is thick and high quality, and I love the fold over cover in charcoal that is very minimal.

Geometric Lace

IMG_3277 As I mentioned yesterday, I ended up needing to stay in town a day longer than I originally planned. You may remember my interview outfit for a study abroad scholarship a couple of weeks ago. Tonight was an award reception and I received one of the awards! I was so excited and thankful to receive it, and this is what I wore to it.

Sorry for such a short post--my Dad and hit the road right after the reception was over and I'm actually blogging from the car right now! Thank you Verizon hot spot! We are en route to Arizona and will be home tomorrow. I cannot wait!

OOTD 68_"Campus"

DSC_0209 With rain in the forecast, I knew it would be the perfect day to pull out my oversized "geek" sweater and Doc Martens. Coincidentally, "Geek Chic" was the challenge of the day over at Coast to Coast Challenge, so I knew my outfit choice was perfect! I spiced up this look with some studs and polka dots, and couldn't resist throwing on my big pair of glasses to completely geek myself out.

The outfit track for today is "Campus" by Vampire Weekend. The collegiate vibe of this song is perfect for a day of class and hitting the books. Listen along here while you read!

OOTD_67: "Sink or Swim"

DSC_0059 After styling this knit camo cardigan casually in this outfit, I couldn't wait to dress it up as well. Today I paired it with some neutrals, this thrifted chambray top and my favorite leather skater skirt. I love how these three pieces came together, especially how the cardigan hangs over the skirt to tone it down for a school day.

Another highlight of this outfit is my new Jeffrey Campbell Litas! I picked these up at the Plato's Closet in AZ over the weekend for 38 bucks! They were originally marked 65, but I traded in my old clothes and got a 27 dollar credit subtracted off the shoes. I think this may be my best find of the year--and it's not even January yet!

The outfit track today is "Sink or Swim" by a great band, Close to Home. Listen along here while you view! DSC_0117

Before class I swapped out my heels for some tights and flats, but I couldn't resist styling these babies right away!
