Formal Work Look Wearing Ivanka Trump and J Crew

J. Crew Lady Day Coat

Everywhere I’ve worked in PR the daily dress code has always been casual. Jeans and a sweater are totally acceptable everyday as long as you look polished and put together. While I LOVE that aspect of my job, you could say it’s made me a little lazier when getting ready in the morning. I would definitely have to make some changes to my wardrobe if I worked in a corporate environment.

I can’t remember the last time I wore a dressed up work look or my J. Crew lady day coat — please let me know if formal office looks are something you’d like to see more of in 2016!

I was wearing…
J Crew lady day coat (similar pink style in stock) | Ivanka Trump fit and flare dress (love the sleeveless version too) | Henri Bendel satchel c/o | aviators | black pumps | David Yurman bracelets | silver watch

If you’re looking for affordable formal workwear, definitely check out Ivanka Trump dresses at Nordstrom. The just under $150 price point is perfect for my budget — I’m always willing to spend a little more if it’s something I’ll wear to client meetings, etc.

I’m also a big fan of the Henri Bendel W 57th handbag collection. I have this a paranoia of getting robbed on the subway so I try to only use handbags that zip close during the work week. I love this line because the bags come in a variety of sizes — I have a large brown version too!

    I’m lucky enough that I also work in a super casual corporate office, actually wearing jeans and a sweater today 😉 But I agree, I do love randomly getting dressed up too! This is a great look Katie!

    I LOVE my lady day coat, even though it’s hot pink, haha. And totally agree about laid-back dress codes. They’re AMAZING, but sometimes they can make you a little lazy on the getting ready front 😉

    You look so cute!! 🙂

    Love to see a lady dressed up for work. You look so professional. A jean look once a week is fine, but
    I believe we have gotten extremely lazy in the workplace. I love your entire outfit and you look like
    you could conquer anything you put your mind to. Pink, pink is my very favorite and I love the coat you
    are wearing.

    Katie you look gorgeous!! I love how the pastel coat contrasts with the dark dress underneath. I feel the same about getting lazy with dressing up! But dressing up also makes me so much happier so I’ve been trying to put more effort into doing that. Have a wonderful day, girl!

    Such a pretty dress! I work in research so I pretty much roll out of bed and am out the door in 15 minutes. I’ll even wear slippers when I’m just doing analysis at my desk all day. It’s the BEST!
