I had to take a mini-break because this week was incredibly hectic. I had my tax midterm (that really didn’t go as well as I thought it would, but I’m fine, this is fine), and big/little week. I was in a crazy good mood the entire week, which felt amazing. It all started with getting up at 5:40am to register for my classes and then watching the sunrise (it was absolutely gorgeous!!). I felt like I was thriving all week long.
This upcoming week, I’ll be going to Los Angeles! More on the reason why in a later blog post, but basically, there will be business networking involved. I’ve been planning what to pack and I actually remembered a really beautiful outfit — wait for it — a recruiter wore once that I absolutely loved. I wanted to recreate it for my networking outfit that I’ll be in for LA. Sometimes, you get inspired from the most unexpected places.
All of my pieces in this outfit are pretty old, but that’s the best part: styling old pieces to form a new outfit! The key here is to find a form-fitting cardigan that can be buttoned all the way up and tucked into a skirt. I’ve never thought to wear a cardigan buttoned all the way because it looks very conservative. But tucked in, it looks very put-together and neat. Ann Taylor always has a great selection of cardigans.
My skirt is one that I hold near and dear to my heart, because I traveled with it for all three months this summer in Europe. It’s elegant, light, and formal.
My nude pumps are a favorite of mine – Nine West does an amazing job designing classic, professional shoes.
What do y’all think? I think this outfit is still professional but definitely more on the “smart casual” side. I’m so excited to wear it this week!
