Internship at Nordstrom HQ’s in Seattle, WA

For those of you that may or may not have read my novel of a post, The Fashionista’s Internship & Essential Pieces Packing Guide, you can see what I packed for two months of 9-to-5 chic and off-duty style. Functional fashion and versatility meet so I never have to wear the same outfit twice– all by packing just a checked bag and a carry on suitcase.


Look One

{Parisian in SeattleA simple stripe tee and leather shorts make a laid-back option for exploring my new city.


Look Two

{Pattern Craze} Layering a shift dress with a collared sleeveless tank gives a preppy and polished look.


Look Three

{First Impressions} A first day at my internship calls for professional pieces with pops of personality.


Look Four

{Work Whites} A mint meets snakeskin combo is a workwear win. White accents are the perfect summery counterpart to black for the 9-to-5 grind.


Look Five

{Jumpin’} A jumpsuit paired with a blazer breaks up workplace monogamy.


Look Six

{Blue + Bow} My (affordable) spin on a classic Yves Saint Laurent style gets a modern twist with a track pant.


Look Seven

{Shifty} A shift shape with updated classic strikes a perfect note for the office.


Look Eight

{Denim Days} A casual friday spin on grid-print work pants comes in form of double denim.


Look Nine

{Metallic Monogamy} My clutch for chic office style? Metallics, in any way, shape or form. Today’s look was no different.


Look Ten

{Corporate Casual} A cheeky graphic tee gets a 9 to 5 twist with pumps and printed pants.


Look Eleven

{Cobalt Cutouts} A colorful shift with cobalt details is paired with metallics for a chic corporate option.


Look Twelve

{Repeat} I copied this exact look – head to toe – from this spring. An office take on sporty-chic.


Look Thirteen

{Duplicate} Another dupe outfit from earlier this summer that was 100% buying office approved.


Look Fourteen

{High Neck & High Heels} Taking one dress from cubicle to cocktails is easy with this great high neck dress.


Look Fourteen

{Olive + Leopard} For a casual meets chilly Seattle day, a simple blouse, olive skinny jeans and a leopard belt are the perfect trifecta.


Look Fifteen

{Repeat Offender} My go-to black blouse gets styled in an edgy and modern way.

Look Sixteen

{Endless Summer} A vibrant romper paired with an equally punchy blazer has me craving an endless summer.
