Everywhere I’ve worked in PR the daily dress code has always been casual. Jeans and a sweater are totally acceptable everyday as long as you look polished and put together. While I LOVE that aspect of my job, you could say it’s made me a little lazier when getting ready in the morning. I would definitely have to make some changes to my wardrobe if I worked in a corporate environment.
I was wearing…
J Crew lady day coat (similar pink style in stock) | Ivanka Trump fit and flare dress (love the sleeveless version too) | Henri Bendel satchel c/o | aviators | black pumps | David Yurman bracelets | silver watch
If you’re looking for affordable formal workwear, definitely check out Ivanka Trump dresses at Nordstrom. The just under $150 price point is perfect for my budget — I’m always willing to spend a little more if it’s something I’ll wear to client meetings, etc.
I’m also a big fan of the Henri Bendel W 57th handbag collection. I have this a paranoia of getting robbed on the subway so I try to only use handbags that zip close during the work week. I love this line because the bags come in a variety of sizes — I have a large brown version too!
