Snag Her Style: Intern Edition!

Calling all Summer interns…or anyone looking for a little office-outfit inspo this summer! Today’s post is for you… Intern style header

Over the past few weeks, I had so much fun helping my younger sister, Katherine, with her hunt for a Summer internship! I was happy to lend advice when she needed it…and more importantly — interview outfits! 😉

When all of the submissions, calls, interviews, and follow-ups were over, she was offered a couple of really great opportunities in NYC + CT! She ended up accepting an incredible position with a very notable corporate company and would be starting…in ONE WEEK!

Katherine has a closet full of the trendiest clothes, but she wasn’t sure she’d have enough work appropriate outfits. Lucky for her, I have a wardrobe full of “adult” clothes and was happy to put some looks together for her first week. I told her that in exchange for my help, she had to let me share the outfits on my blog, to which she happily agreed! 🙂 necklaces

My sister is hands down, one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen, so I knew she’d look great in anything, but I really wanted her to enjoy the outfits she’d be wearing. My goal was to make her look professional + polished, but make her feel comfortable + confident at the same time!

She + I can pretty much share everything but shoes. So the first thing I had her do was pick up a pair of Comfort Plus heels from Payless in her size! I will rave about these shoes until the day that I die! [You can read more about my obsession here if you’d like.] 😉

Comfort Plus

I had her get a nude pair to start! Black feels too heavy for Summer, and this shade is pretty much guaranteed to go with everything…as you’ll see! 😉

From there, I pulled a couple of outfit options for each day + styled them with a few accessories for her to choose from. I have to say, she was a pretty easy client and I think she ended up looking pretty darn good this past week! 🙂

Take a look! –>

MONDAY MondayFor the first day on a job, I think that a dress or skirt is most appropriate. In an effort to steer clear of anything too short, tight, or revealing, I put Katherine in this super comfortable pencil skirt, a bright red/orange sleeveless top, a beaded necklace, and a gold Michael Kors watch. An easy topknot completed this bold, day 1, power outfit!

TUESDAY TuesdayOn her second day, we went a little more casual. I put Kath in a pair of my favorite Cynthia Rowley ankle slacks with a sleeveless teal top. Her nude Comfort Plus heels, a gold choker, and a cream BCBG tote completed the look!

THURSDAYThursday   Sticking with the bright-color theme, I put Katherine in this pink Cynthia Rowley sundress [with pockets!!]. The racerback design was a bit too revealing for the office, so we topped it with a black cropped sweater. A faux-pearl statement necklace, our favorite heels, and her cute eyeglass frames completed the look!

Friday  After a long week first week on the job, I wanted  Kath to wear something no-fuss on Friday. We revisited Tuesday’s ankle slacks, paired them with a sleeveless black turtleneck, and of course, her CP heels. To add a pop of color, this shamrock green tote made the perfect accessory!

HOW CUTE IS THIS INTERN?!

I am SO proud of my girl for landing such a great opportunity, adjusting to a FT work schedule like a pro, and looking pretty fabulous while doing it! I have a feeling my styling duties aren’t over just yet, so if you enjoyed this post, let me know… I may share a few more [she’s a working woman until August]! 😉

Thank you guys for reading, feel free to share this blog with any students, friends, nieces, granddaughters, etc. who may be entering the working world this Summer! Hopefully it’ll give them a little inspiration!

Have a great weekend everybody!

XOXO

    First of all, I didn’t even know that it wasn’t you in those pics. Y’all are twins! Wednesday’s look is my fav. I love coral and turquoise together. There’s nothing more chic than an all black outfit with a pop of color. Love all of these styles! Your sister is lucky to have such a great closet to borrow from!
