Networking Night

Posted by Picasa
Hot on a job search, I've been attending a lot of networking events and meeting a lot of cool people!  I've been trying to mix business with the creative side of my wardrobe, since that is what I'm hoping to do professionally.  It's a fun task to get the conservative business wardrobe pieces to wake up just a little, I have a feeling if I get hired in the industry I want, I'll be embarking on a fun new fashion challenge!

Summer "Suit"

I sometimes wonder why I live in a place that had a high of 112 this week.  Don't worry, I'll remember again in the winter.  On those days the need to dress up for work/church/interviews just makes me want to cry when I look at my black suit.  I'm trying to find some nice alternatives that won't make my internal organs when I go outside.

Summer Lovin'

The truth: I'm actively looking for a job outside of teaching, but I may have to teach one more year even post MBA.  I am trying to tell myself to enjoy summer instead of stress.  I'm also trying to tell myself applying for jobs in your pajamas all day isn't cool.  So here is attempt #1 at dressing up my summer casual wardrobe.

Wait! There's a Cardigan...

Do you ever snap pictures after work and then think, oh wait, I had something else with this? Maybe you grab your bag or put your shoes back on, I remember that cardigans are wore the first half of the day and then it's so hot by afternoon they come off. That is AZ in the summer for you!

The Summer Blazer

This is a key summer piece for me, preppy, a little casual, and versitile. Did I mention lightweight? I can't live without it! What are some of your summer pieces you can't do without for work?
