I have been so swamped lately with everything. It has seriously been the most stressful quarter yet, and I'm so happy that this is the last week of it! Now that most of my projects are done, I can work on getting my portfolio finished up and applying for jobs and internships (scary!).
It was really great timing, in fact, that Amy from Modcloth asked me to participate in their Uniquely You campaign by creating a look with the "Lead by Example Dress." (Check out the set on my Polyvore). One of the things that I'm actually looking forward to in my upcoming job search is all the cute professional clothes I'll get to go shopping for, and making this set was so much fun! I may even have to get this outfit, because I ended up really liking it for a firm tour or job interview (I'm growing up ya'll) and all the pieces are super versatile and classic.
I love the cobalt blue color of the dress paired with light neutrals for spring and leopard flats (with the kitten heel...so cute) to keep it from being boring, yet still professional. This trench coat is fabulous, and I just love it for springtime, it's such a great take on a classic and looks so chic. I would definitely wear all these pieces separately (um...that necklace? definitely on my wish-list now...) and I think they're perfect for the 20 something entering the workforce that still wants to look modern and youthful.
I firmly believe that your personal style reflects a lot about you and is important for that first all important first impression. Modcloth is a great place to start building a professional wardrobe with their selection of fun-yet appropriate dresses and separates. Check out a few more of my favorites I've had my eye on:
