When I started this blog many, many, many years ago, I was a student, able to dress however I wanted.  Now, as a young professional, I like to dress business-casual, but with a hint of hip.  I find that many other young professionals have a hard time with office chic and struggle between the balance of looking too formal or looking too cool on the job.  And so I have decided to document some of my work ensembles.  Somehow, I have been able to shop at trendy stores like Urban Outfitters and still be able to wear those outfits to a business environment (and comfortably, too!) :D  I am able to meet with clients, go on business lunches, and, at the end of the day, hang out with friends in a fun atmosphere without feeling stuffy.  Today, I am wearing everything from Urban Outfitters: Kimchi Blue Mix Fabric Crepe Jacket, Sparkle & Fade Knit Carved Shoulder Circle Dress, UO Sheer Animal Tights, and Kimchi Blue Molly Patent Pumps

Yes this can be hard to pull off. My friend is a lawyer and works at a law firm and she is totally in to the rock billy look and has full sleeves of tats on both arms. It is really a challenge for her. But she likes to dress sorta retro--think Mad Men. You did a great job!

that is really cute. I can see how it could be really struggling to find a balance in office space. I am not there in my life yet but I can see how it could be a problem

It's interesting to make the change from dressing however you want for class to dressing professionally for work. I had a difficult time with the transition simply because of what I had in my closet.
