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.
