Stop Dressing Like An Undergrad, continued!

I'm a summer intern with a nonprofit theater in Chicago, and all the other summer interns are of the 19-years-old (or thereabouts) variety. Also, the office culture in this organization is very casual- jeans, sandals, and such. I've got to go to work each day and 1) not look like I'm out of my freshman year of undergrad, 2) not look overly fussy in comparison to the regular staff, and 3) not look like I'm living out of suitcases stacked in the living room. This has meant almost no jeans (unless with serious heels and something more interesting than a t-shirt), and lots of skirt/moderately casual dress + low heels combinations.


Today's combination was augmented by a surprise thunderstorm on my way home from work, so I look a bit less than thrilled to be standing in wet shoes here.


Dress, Kara Janx; magenta tanktop for office propriety, Esprit; black heels, Urban Outfitters; tangerine manicure to up the 80's factor with the neon green trim on the dress and the magenta tanktop.

You do realize, of course, that I want to put myself on the stretching rack, ooch all the way up to your height, and steal your wardrobe?

Just so we're on the same page.
