we can work it out

there was a time i was terrified of interviews or formal meetings. not due to my nerves, but more so of the dreadful stare into my dismal closet which lacked the right mix of professional outfits. most of the combinations turned out to be too much, too little, stuffy, uncomfortable, or as if i was wearing my mothers hand me downs. when all else fails and you go through several 'dont's', ive learned you can never go wrong with the "all-black" approach and other work staples such as the high waisted pant, pencil skirt, collared work dress, and the quintessential blazer. these looks exemplify the perfect mix of work chic, class, and comfort - so we can all learn to just 'work it out'

  2. For formal meetings or interviews- I always stick with a pant unless it's summer.

  3. For formal meetings & interviews in my sometimes-conservative area, I always stick with classic skirt & blazer (or pants if it's cold)...but lots of funky accessories make it more fun depending on the person!

  10. I always hate having to pick interview outfits - since I feel there's a lot of pressure - you get judged a bit by what you wear I think x
