You know the old saying — all good things must come to an end. An intern’s summer in New York City is one of them. You’ve learned a lot, both in and out of your internship, like how to send packages via FedEx or how to navigate the subway, but now it’s time to pack up your cube (if you were lucky enough to get one!), write your thank you cards, and say your goodbyes. In these last few weeks of summer as an intern before our return to the world of studentdom, it’s all about trying to get in those last few moments, sucking all you can out of the opportunity you’ve been given. From last minute networking dates and typical errands at the office, to running crosstown to a dinner or to see one more inch of the city that you haven’t covered yet, dress to impress on your last week – but dress for your jam packed last week schedule.
This Fashionista has got this fusion downpat. Her look is casual, consisting of jeans, sandals, and a button down shirt, but has office friendly elements, like the fine, olive green fabric of her top, and the pearl necklace around her neck. The dark wash and fit of her denim automatically make her ensemble more office appropriate in consideration with light washes, and her tan sandals are perfect for jaunting around the city.
To get the Fashionista’s look, try a dark pair of jeans, like this pair from Madewell. The dark wash is perfect for taking your casual, comfortable outfit up a notch. Try a silk blouse in a bold color from J.Crew and pair with a looped beaded necklace around your neck to bring the look up a notch. With your favorite pair of sandals, and you’re wardrobe ready for your last week as an intern! Real world, see you post-grad!
