This summer, I have two internships – one on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, and one on Wednesdays and Thursdays. What this means is I need lots of business casual. It is difficult – and extremely stressful – to throw outfits together in the morning before work, so I decided to find a basic set of items that, if I added them to my closet, would help me come up with more outfit combinations with the clothes I already had… and give me less stress.
Because Pinterest solves all problems, I started there. I found a handy dandy article with outfit suggestions, which is where I discovered the white dress, windowpane plaid blouse, light-knit sweater, white pants, layered gold necklace and pointed cheetah flats. I then sought out a bright colored blazer, neutral clutch, black pointed heel, and round sunglasses. Ever since I got my first pair in Paris last summer, I’ve been addicted to round sunglasses. They are the only shape that seems to work with my baby cheeks!
