Daily: First Day

Yesterday was the first day of my internship for the summer, and I absolutely loved it. They kept me busy, which made the day fly by, and before I knew it, the clock had reached 5. One of the best parts of the internship is that it keeps me inside for most of the day, which means it keeps me from the drenching humidity here in Arkansas. Humidity means frizzy hair for me, so I’m more than okay with staying in air-conditioning. Here’s the breakdown:

Dress: Ann Taylor LOFT
Blazer: Forever 21
T-Straps: Goodwill (Franco Sarto)
Belt: TJ Maxx (American Eagle)
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Earrings: Peebles/Claire's 

I wore an outfit very similar to this last fall (in fact, I’m almost certain it’s the same blazer), but I figured why change a good thing? I wanted to look professional yet feminine for my first day, and the ruffles on this dress scream girly while the blazer keeps things tamed and professional. Surprisingly, I stayed in these heels the whole day without any sort feet. I didn’t even have to pull out my flats that I stored in my trusty (and favorite) Brahmin tote. 

Now onto the second day!
