A Week Of Work Outfits

I recently got an internship with National Geographic Cengage Learning, a textbook publishing company. Unlike my past jobs, this is a professional environment, meaning professional attire. However, I was faced with the situation of my closet being filled with clothing for service industry jobs. So I decided to make it a challenge and see how many different outfits I could make with my limited pieces. I thought I would share with you my outfits from this week!

Please excuse the phone mirror pictures. My apartment currently lacks a full length mirror and since Cody leaves long before I wake up each morning, I am forced to make the most out of the mirror at work and my phone. :)


Tuesday, Wednesday




Tuesday: This was my first day, so I wanted to dress my best. As you can tell I was very excited to get my key card.

What I am wearing:
- Khaki dress pants and jacket from Express
- Black tank from Target
- Black DV by Dolce Vida wedges
- Rose gold Michael Kors watch

Wednesday: This was my favorite outfit this week, as I feel it portrayed my personality the most!

What I am wearing:
- Colorful top from Kohl's
- Black tank from Aeropostal
- White dress pants from Express
- Taupe Steve Madden wedges
- Rose gold Michael Kors watch
- Michael Kors Hamilton handbag

Thursday, Friday



 Thursday: I had to get creative for Thursday because I did not have another pair of dress pants and it has been much too cold to wear a skirt. By wearing flats and no jacket, I was able to dress down the same pants from Tuesday and make a completely new outfit!

What I am wearing:
- White top from Ann Taylor Loft
- Khaki dress pants from Express
- Rose gold Vince Camuto flats
- Rose gold Michael Kors watch
- Michael Kors Hamilton handbag

Friday: I was informed Fridays are "casual". To me, casual is my regular work attire worn with a pair of dark-wash jeans. The picture is very dark which makes it hard to see what I am wearing.

What I am wearing:
- Plum cape sweater from Ann Taylor Loft
- Kim skinny jeans by DL1961
- Black DV by Dolce Vida wedges
- Rose gold Michael Kors watch
- Leather/Rose gold key bracelet from Fossil
- Michael Kors Hamilton handbag

Surprisingly enough I didn't wear any nail polish this week. I like to give my nails a break for about a week every few months. I find this makes them healthier and naturally shiny!
As you can tell, my watch, handbag, and DV wedges are three of my favorite items to wear.

What are your favorite accessories right now?
