Over the weekend, I went to a conference and had to wear business appropriate clothing. It was pretty cool because I actually love professional outfits even though I don’t have many opportunities to wear them as a high school student. Blogs like Extrapetite.com make me itch to put on some pretty blouses and pencil skirts!
Now on with the outfits:
1) H&M dress and jacket
Since I’m pretty short, I love how this cropped jacket lengthens my legs! You can’t see it, but I’m also wearing a small clarinet pin from marching band on the lapel. This is the most casual of my three business outfits.
2) H&M blazer and dress, Forever 21 scarf
This outfit was inspired by Extrapetite.com 🙂 I saw Jean wearing a sheath dress from Asos and was ecstatic when I found this exact dupe (except for the color) at H&M for only $3.50! They were having a buy one get one free promotion on sale items. The grey scarf is super warm and cozy for the brisk walk to the conference room.
3) H&M blazer, Dynamite (Canadian brand) dress
I got this dress a while ago when I visited Canada, and although I like the color and tiered design (not very visible in the pictures), there are a lot of loose threads. I pulled most of them out, though, so it wasn’t too noticeable.
I wore black bow heels with all the outfits despite the cold commute (darn! I should have brought boots with me). Also, ignore the green band on my wrist! It’s a pass for a party and I forgot to take it off 😛 As you probably already noticed, H&M is my go-to store for cute, affordable professional clothing. I often get the dresses on sale for less than $10! You probably also noticed that I wore a lot of dresses. I actually do not own any pencil skirts, so I had to wear dresses every day.
I had no school today because it’s Midwinter Break. Most schools have up to a week off, but my school only gave us one day off T_T. I’ll finish it off with my lazy at-home outfit:
One last note: see the neat room? Many thanks to my lovely mom and sister for cleaning up for me while I was away 🙂
Until next time,
