While I would love to snap outfit pictures of all my looks, let’s be real – ain’t nobody got time for that! So in place of daily outfit photos I’ve been taking a mirror selfie or having Nick snap a quick picture of me for Instagram before heading off to work in the mornings. I wish I could tell you guys that I look as nice for work everyday as I do in my blog photos. I just always feel like I’m rushing and no matter how much time I give myself I always have to leave something out – styling my hair, putting on makeup, or taking the time put on a well thought out outfit. As you can see – when it comes to work attire I really go for comfort and convenience. My office is super casual so I really don’t feel the need to wear heels or a full face of makeup.
It’s really funny. One of the most common questions I get asked is, ‘Do you feel pressure to wear all designer clothing to work since you work at a fashion PR agency?’ The answer to that is HELL NO. I think the media and stupid reality shows like The Hills and Kell on Earth have given people this view that the PR industry is so glam and everyone walks around in Louboutins and Chanel. Completely not true. Everyone I’ve ever worked with has always worn a mix of highs and lows. Most PR jobs starting out aren’t very high paying so it’s really rare to see someone my age wearing designer clothing. The most common brands I see around my office are Zara, Forever21, Club Monaco, Topshop and J. Crew and Coach. There is the occasional AH-mazing Celine bag or red-bottomed heel but for the most part I’d say we all dress, well, pretty normal.
What do you wear to work? Do you feel pressure to dress a certain way or wear certain brands? Would love to hear your experiences!
