She started wearing a lot of black, white and grey, and hanging out with architects.
I don’t talk about my day job too much on here, but last year I was promoted to a new position that involves networking with professionals in the architecture field. I’m not saying that architects have a different style than engineers, but architecture is a much more heavily female occupation. Architects also have to think about the aesthetic of their work, which can translate into their personal style.
At any rate, I had to translate my own business wardrobe (or maybe, lack of business wardrobe?) into a style that would fit for attending business casual evening networking events.
This basic, but chic outfit has been my go to – plus all of the items are great for travel and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the event. More formal? Switch out for a black pencil skirt and a short sweater or blazer. Less formal? Jeans it is!
A great accessory for a classic look? Pearls! This gorgeous strand is from my friend Karen at Golden Crown Jewelers. Stay tuned for a chance to win this exact necklace on Wednesday!
