I’ve officially had a week of summer already! I went home for the week and it was nice to be able to be a potato for the week and do nothing. Although, knowing me, I did attempt to be productive by doing a lot of planning, setting goals for myself, and making a list of things I want to accomplish this summer. I’ve finished a few books already too and finally completed all the seasons of Parks and Recreation (I’m going to miss those characters so much!!).
Since my internship orientation starts tomorrow (!!) I was getting ready to plan my outfits for the summer. Most Seattle firms aren’t as formal as you might think – no jeans, but not business professional either. My real struggle is the heat getting to and from work and trying to stay sweat-less, but also battling the air conditioning of the office space 😂 BUT I think from my browsing the J.Crew site, I’ve found some basic pieces that I’m drawing inspiration from. I’ve also been loving Fran’s outfits – she’s also interning this summer and her ‘fits are killer!
I’m not able to purchase all of these pieces, but I do own some similar-looking pieces that will do the trick. I think I definitely need to find myself a pair of black mules though because they are all the rage and they look so cute and comfortable.
the short sleeve button-up // the long-sleeve button-up // the classic oxford // the ruffle-sleeve wrap // the wide-leg khakis // the pant suit // the triple-bow pencil skirt // the striped dress // the classic bow dress // the simple flats // the textured mini-skirt // the leather mules // the cognac block sandals // the wide-leg tie pants
I’ve been toying around with the idea of starting the capsule wardrobe lifestyle (if you’re not sure what a “capsule” wardrobe is, Caroline from Un-Fancy is the ultimate queen), so I’ll keep y’all posted.
Wish me luck on my first day of my internship tomorrow!! Thanks for reading!
