Corporate Culture

Monday, August 13, 2012 142 0

Dress: BCBG. Belt: BCBG. Handbag: Gucci. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: Stella & Dot. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Forever 21, J.Crew, BCBG. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene.

 

Last week, the head honcho of our company visited our field office (where I’m located at work). Β It’s an unwritten rule to dress your corporate best when the big wigs show up. Β I’m not a matching 2 piece suit girl, so this is my version of Β formal corporate attire. . .traditional black and white, with pops of pink and gold.

    YEAH Jenny without sunglasses :-D, I had to look twice ;-). Love your cooporate outfit, and how you added some modern twist with the gold and pink heels to it. I am not a matching 2 pieces suit girl either so I hear ya and love your interpretation. Such a huge fan of gold accessoires as well, you look pretty as always and your eyes are pretty so you don’t have to hide them behind sunnies all the time πŸ˜‰

    Have a lovely start in the week

    I used to wear suits almost daily since it’s so easy but now I feel it’s so boring. This is a look I would wear if the big cheese came to my office.

    You look fab!

    Definitely an unwritten rule! I always wore my best suit and collared shirt at my old job. Now I see my CEO almost on a daily basis. My work culture is a little more relaxed now. Anyway, LOVE this outfit! So cute and professional at the same time!

      Yes, it would probably be different if I worked in the same office as our CEO. I wouldn’t have to feel so formal on a daily basis I’m sure. Thanks so much Rachel!

    You should totally get a promotion πŸ™‚ In my book, this is just as professional as a suit, but looks way better.

    You look so cute! (and alot younger dont know why haha)

    • Jenny
      August 13, 2012

      Ha ha, yes, it’s the first time here without sunnies. I definitely look really young (even though I’m not), and that’s part of the reason I wear the sunglasses too. . .I feel it makes me look a tad older (or maybe it’s just wishful thinking)! πŸ™‚

    • Jenny

      Thanks Alison! People confuse this for a top and skirt all the top. It would probably be more versatile if it were two pieces, but I loved the dress so much that I bought it anyways.
