.Desk To Dinner.

In a couple of weeks on May 9th, I will be giving a talk to high school juniors and seniors on how to dress for their first interview, their first job, and their first entree into college! I have to admit, leaving The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and coming to the University of Chicago was a completely different shift in wardrobe. As I began working at UofC, I had to do a major wardrobe overhaul and learn a lot of techniques, tricks, and the best methods to dressing business every day, without losing my sense of style and unique character.

Over the last two years, I can honestly say that I think (I sure hope so!) I have mastered the art of business-casual-but-not-boring dressing. I've done similar workshops in the past and usually refer to my methods as "Desk to Dinner" - meaning, wearing clothing to work that is both professional but also appropriate for an after work drink, date, or a fun night out with your girlfriends. I ran into this problem when I constantly had blogger events after work, but had no time to stop home and change since my commute is long. After all my years of refusing to shop at Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor LOFT, I cannot stress enough how it has been my saving grace!! Take a look at 2 outfits from LOFT below that fulfill this goal: dressing for your desk and for dinner!
