5 Outfits for a Summer Internship

Summer is in full swing, and for those of us lucky enough to snag an internship for the summer, we’re spending our mornings stressing over what to wear. The typical college look of Nike shorts and a t-shirt just won’t cut it. We’re advised to dress smart casual or business casual on a daily basis, and with a small income that can be hard to achieve. Today I’m sharing my 5 outfits for a summer internship!

All of these pieces came straight from my closet. Except for the pants, there was no additional purchasing of clothes! And I’m pretty proud about that! I tried my best to find the links to all off the items or at least find some sort of similar option. Hope you enjoy!

I’m all about subtle details, and the crochet overlay on this top does just that!

TOP: Marshall’s

PANTS: Costco Buffalo David Bitton Ladies’ Ankle Length Skinny Pant in Grey
These are my new favorite pants. They’re stretchy, soft, and dressy enough for work. I’m 5’2″ and typically wear a size 0 or 1/2 in pants. These are the size 2 and they fit great! Just the right length as well which is hard to find for a short frame.

NECKLACE: Nordstrom Rack
* Can’t find the one pictured, but this one from Charming Charlie’s would look just as cute!

SHOES: Target circa 2012ish

Again with the subtle details. The buttons on the back of this top add just that extra amount of detail that really makes it stand out!

This is one of the simpler outfits from the week, but it’s so comfy! Those pants are stretchy and a nice loose sweater really ties it all together!

A simple grey t-shirt paired with black pants and a gold necklace is one of my favorite looks. It’s neutral (which I love!) and it looks simple and elegant.

What I love most about this outfit is the pop of color in the shoes and the zipper on the back of the shirt! Zippers are one of my weaknesses when it comes to shirts, and it makes this plain black t-shirt a little more unique.

PANTS: American Eagle Jeans

  • Oh my goodness I love these outfits! Also, these pictures are so cute and amazing! I have a very relaxed dress code (I work for my dad as an intern for his company, and I work from the home office haha!) but most days I try to dress up because it helps me to focus better. I love jeans and a simple, black top that I can dress up with jewelry.

    • Haha I recruited my brother as my official blog photographer. Jeans and a black top is like my go-to outfit at school. Simple, easy, and can be dressed up as needed. Is there anything better than that, haha!

    Love all the shoes. There is a special place in my heart for all target sandals. All the outfits were also super cute. Can’t wait to start interning!

    • Target sandals are amazing and I feel like whenever I walk by the shoe section, I have to buy a pair!
