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! 🙂
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.] 😉
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 For 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 On 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!
Back to bold! This vibrant orange Cynthia Rowley dress paired with a turquoise statement necklace + her CP heels made for a perfectly polished, and comfortable Summer work outfit.
THURSDAY 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!
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!

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!
