Wearing: DEPT dress // Essentiel bag // Twice as Nice earrings
I've been getting a few questions about work wear so I thought I'd show you something I'd wear to a day of meeting clients as a social worker. I am starting my last bachelor year next monday (yikes!), so I don't have a "real" job yet, but we do have internships. As an intern you pretty much have carte blanche. I've had an office job at an elderly home last year, and i'll have another office job this year. As an intern you pretty much have carte blanche, but there are a few rules you might want to follow up on. The basic rule is to dress so that you look approachable. People should feel at ease around you because you are their counselor and guide and you are the one they have to tell all about themselves and their life. So in contrast to a lot of classic offices black and grey are not the best options when you are meeting clients. You can wear these colours to meet the big chief though. There are the obvious rules like: no cleavage, no short skirts/shorts and no stilletto's and thirdly: you have to radiate personality. This actually alignes with the first rule. Your appearance is a big part of the impression you make on others. I try to look inviting by wearing a smile all the time (not when discussing serious problems, ofcourse) and I try to colourfull. This dress is the perfect work dress for me. It's long enough, and with a tank top the cleavage isn't too bad. The fun leaf print and marine blue colour make the look more soft than an all black two piece suit. I wasn't working when we took these photos, so that's why I'm wearing my pretty heels, but I can easily switch to a pair of flats for the office.
The Big Bang Theory just ended, so that means I have to wrap this post up. I promised Kenneth we'd play Call Of Duty together. I'm going to K-I-C-K H-I-S A-S-S!
Have a good one folks!
