I’m sorry I’ve haven’t blogged in a while. School has been really intense these last few weeks and I haven’t had time to blog. Luckily, this too shall pass!
Last year, I had a co-op placement (internship) and I remember slightly worrying about what I would wear to work. I know right, this should have been the least of my problems (in life) considering the numerous troubles involved in transitioning from a student to a non student. I believe the right word is ADULTING. (More on this another post)
I am interested in fashion and I grew up being overly conscious of my outfits, maybe this could explain why I worried. Interestingly, when it came to dressing for school, I found myself usually in sweat pants, gym clothes (even pajamas) and on a good day- a pair of jeans and a sweater. That said, there were mornings I literally had nothing to wear to work although I was staring at a closet full of “college” clothes.
- Debunk any expectations of a complete closet makeover when transitioning. (Except you can afford it). Still!
- Don’t stress about it.
- Look for inspiration(s) online. Research and be creative.
- Shop for what you need, when you need them & when you can.
- Finally, BE CONFIDENT in whatever you wear!!!
Here are a few outfits I derived from casual sweaters. (MY Mini LookBook)
i) I pair this sweater with flare pants (I almost gave out these pants, LOL).
ii) This is one of my favorite work dresses and I threw on a knit sweater for this look. This look is also featured here.
iii) This used to be one of my worst sweaters till I tried it with this outfit. Threw a belt to make it look formal. I also love how the color contrasts with the skirt. Needless to say, this is one of my best looks!
iv) Inspired by Ellen DeGeneres……
v) I am a huge fan of open sweaters. Why?– You can wear them in the summer, they are also easy to take off and wear over most clothes.
