Some Personality

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I wore this outfit for an interview I had earlier this week. For companies with a more casual dress code, it's hard to walk the line between looking professional and still fitting in with the company culture. It's always important to look put together, but that doesn't mean you have to wear a black blazer and pencil skirt to every interview. For my outfit, I opted for this button-up, because I thought the print gave it more personality than just a simple white dress shirt. I then decided to pair my trusty mustard midi skirt with it because the color matched well with my shirt, and the length made it interview appropriate. 

Later in the day, I swapped my skirt out for boyfriend jeans, and my heels out for Sperry's. I usually don't wear button-ups, but I really like the feel of this printed shirt and think it will be a great piece for spring. I've also been noticing a ton of "menswear" button-ups online, so I can definitely sense a spring trend on the horizon! Loose shirts like this are perfect because they can be worn with pants, skirts, or even worn open over a top or dress.

P.S. I'm officially done with all my papers and finals...TGISB (thank goodness it's spring break)!!

  4. 1. I LOVE this outfit! It's super flattering on you. This color palette looks great with your coloring. 2. Is it casual? I feel like girls can get away with being more casual...but a button down and heels says dressed up for me.
