A Dose of Dots

Neutrals are my jam right now. I found myself gravitating towards all neutrals with a few pops of color when putting together both my fall and winter capsule wardrobes. Although I’m not working with a strict capsule wardrobe right now, my style has remained about the same. Neutrals just make it so easy to put together easy stylish outfits, something I definitely needed during my spring internship and even now while working from home. I especially love patterned or textured neutral pieces like this dotted blazer and these gold snakeskin patterned flats.

A Dose of Capsule-Worthy Neutral Staples

While I’m still in love with the capsule wardrobe concept, I chose not to work with a strictly outlined wardrobe this spring and summer. Life just seemed a little too uncertain for me to commit to only wearing pre-selected pieces for three months. Between moving home to Portland and starting a new internship, I didn’t have a clear picture of what I needed in a capsule wardrobe.

Instead, I loosely gathered the items that were either part of my fall or winter capsules, a few pieces I frequently wore during past spring seasons and a handful of new pieces. I didn’t have any rules regarding the number of items and I didn’t restrict myself from accessing the rest of my closet. Although I mostly wore the pieces I initially picked out, having the freedom to grab other items gave me some piece of mind as the weather shifted and I navigated a new office culture. Neutral pieces like this olive anorak and lace top allowed me to play with a bit of style without standing out too much as the new intern.

A Dose of Mint

Starting a new internship this spring came with its own set of challenges: balancing a new workload, acclimating to the office culture, and, of course, figuring out what to wear. I had a pretty traditional idea of what postgrad fashion in a PR agency would look like, and it wasn’t the laid-back, casual environment I was met with. I had spent the last six months investing in a few pencil skirts, blouses and office-appropriate dresses, but those pieces suddenly seemed way too formal.

Instead, I found a way to blend my new pieces into my existing campus style to create professional looks that were a natural extension of my style. This mint sweater was one of those pieces. Paired with a staple black skirt or skinny jeans, it looks polished but is totally comfortable for a day at the office.
