How to Dress AT Your Dream Job feat. Gwynnie Bee




Maybe it's because I was always destined to work in fashion, but I vividly remember what I wore to my first internship interview at JANE Magazine. I was a sophomore in college, and while I had a job since I was old enough to hustle my babysitting club idea or haul chairs on the beach (yes, really), this internship was the ticket I needed to get in the door and climb straight to the corner office (or so I thought). An internship at a major fashion magazine in 2003 was BIG, and in my eyes it would be my first introduction into the "real world". I remember being anxious, but not really nervous and that , I know, had everything to do with my outfit. Even back then, I knew the power of the perfect look. And so, as I put on my navy blue suit, shadow stripe button down, tortoise patent leather Jimmy Choo's stilettos and the perfect (borrowed from mom) diamond earrings I had not only secured my buttons, but I had secured my confidence.


In 03' I had NO CLUE what a fashion stylist was, and blogging wasn't even a thing. The world we live in now didn't exist - but I knew in my gut that I was meant to be in fashion. I was so enthralled with the power of dressing that I somehow managed to make a career out of it. 15 years later, I am still focused on the "look". Only now, it isn't just for my own appearance, it's also for my clients'! My career path had some {very} windy roads... but the twists and turns were all worth it because they brought me here....

I have my dream job, and I am so incredibly grateful. Part of that gratitude comes from knowing that not everyone is there yet! This month, Gwynnie Bee partnered with Year Up , an organization that helps students 18-24 from low income homes prepare for and land internships at some of their dream companies! SO, When Gwynnie Bee reached out to see if I’d be interested in partnering together to share some of my “wear to work” tips, tricks and advice - I immediately hopped on board! 


Not only because I love Gwynnie Bee for being a size inclusive (0-32) clothing subscription service (wear, return, repeat), but because I'll jump on any opportunity where I get to to encourage others to live their best life, follow their path and dress their best for whatever dream job they're looking to land! While all of our paths are different, and all our timelines unique- the one common thread is fashion. With each interview, internship and job comes a new look! The beauty of fashion is being able to enhance your own story with clothing, using them to better express who you are!

It's all about letting your look tell the story.


So today, I'm sharing what I wear on the job and some tips/tricks I use in my day to day......
