Working Girl

Summer is here (finally)! Now that school is out for the summer, I can devote more time to Stylin' Iowan, as well as my internship. I love dressing up for work, especially in the warmer months. It's fun to wear cute work appropriate dresses and fun pencil skirts, pieces that I don't normally wear from class to work. Today I'm featuring one of my good friends from work, Britt! We actually took these photos on her last day of work, as she recently graduated from Iowa this spring. She will truly be missed at JPEC!

Below is a message from Britt about this outfit and her personal style:

"My name is Brittany and I just graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Health and Human Physiology: Health Promotion and a Certificate of Entrepreneurial Management. While in college, I was extremely busy as I was a full-time student, I was the Marketing & Events Intern at the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center, I created a student organization and coordinated an annual 5K. Even though I am quite busy, looking my best has always been important to me. When shopping, I search for “classic” pieces to build my working girl wardrobe. I usually spice up my outfits with a great necklace, shoes or a jacket. As I am always on the go, I like to choose outfits that can go from work to a night on the town. Overall, I think my style is simple and chic with a little bit of spice every now and then."

This dress is great for work! I like that the straps are thicker, making it more appropriate so that the shoulders aren't completely bare. Depending on how formal your work environment is, you can throw any colored cardy on with pumps, or even tights for the fall and winter months. Versatile and affordable, all things girls love! 

Dress: Forever 21 ($25)
Necklace: Francesca’s ($20)
Shoes: Younkers ($30)
