Gotta Work It!

Love this look, maybe not full on orange-red though. :)

I got an internship here in Taiwan for the two months that I will be here. I'm a bit worried about it since I can only speak and listen to Chinese, Can't read or write. But this will hopefully help improve my Chinese. SOO.. I am looking for work clothes for the summer.. that is not too casual looking. They said I can look casual and stuff .. but I want to make an impression so I'm going to dress better than that. I will be going shopping later today to figure out what to wear. This company is definitely more conservative than I am. But it's a great opportunity for me to learn!!

What do you think of my work clothing inspiration? And what do you wear to work without feeling less than fashionable?! Lastly, Since I'm an intern do you think wearing heels are a no-no?

PS updated the portfolio, and the links page. If you want to exchange blog links, I would love it!!

Elle, Hanneli, J. Crew

Kelly, how excited to be in another country! Congrats. I like your work inspirations. The colors are really great. Earth tones are very hot right now. As far as heels, I would see what other women are wearing. I am not sure about the culture where you are working. But if other women are wearing heels, go for it! There shouldn't be any restrictions because you are an intern, but just double check.

Have a great one!

Oooh what are you interning for? I think heels would be fine. But flats are good sometimes too! I like the pieces you picked out...for a professional setting, I like a structured piece, like the blazer, and then something a LITTLE more casual (but still good looking), like black skinny pants. Or a tighter skirt.

Marcie - Thanks for the words of advice and encouragement!!!

Ashley - I'm doing a fashion design internship, but I'll be doing a lot of different things. And that's a great suggestion with wearing something casual w/ something structured.

Jen - Thanks for the encouragement!!

Sabo - I know right, I want it really badly!
