Outfit: What to Wear to an Internship


After finishing my first week of my internship, I can officially say I have figured out my own personal dress code for the rest of the summer. On the first day, I went to work wearing my favorite neon pink fluted skirt, a lace tee and flats only to realize that everyone in the office dresses a bit more laid back than I expected. Because I'm interning for a company that houses several footwear brands, everyone dresses stylish but not necessarily super formal - which I love! (Think the J.Crew Style guide for reference.) That being said, I've been wearing a lot of outfits like white jeans and nice tops with wedges, or dresses with sneakers and a statement necklace. This look is what I wore last Tuesday and I can't get over how cute and comfortable the dress is. The color is so pretty for summer and it pairs perfectly with my cognac bag from Tory Burch and my lace up sandals. (It also comes in the cutest army green which I'm considering buying too!) I can't wait to get more wear out of it this season! 

My rule of thumb for my new dress code is to pick one or two elements to dress up a normally more casual look. For example, a pair of wedges with jeans or a skirt with a tee. That way, you're still comfy for the day but look put together at the same time. 

I'm interested to hear: what do you wear for your job or internship?
Look out for a post soon all about my work bag + what I bring in it!

  2. I'm working at J.Crew Factory this summer and had the same experience, everyone at my work dresses very cute but not very dressy. White and dark wash jeans and a cute top are my go-to!

  3. This outfit is SO cute on you, Caroline! I love your bag- my mom has the smaller version of it in the orange color and I always love borrowing it!

  4. Those shoes are to die for! I am the same way, I am interning at an engineering firm (that sadly is mostly male dominated) so it was kinda up to me to decide the girl dress code!

  5. This is a great internship outfit! I'm working an office job that isn't in fashion, so I usually wear dress pants with a blouse or a dress with flats.
