My second Summer as an intern on an architecture studio is about to start. As internships are not compulsory in our architecture school, I couldn't be more grateful and conscious of how fortunate I am right now. An internship in architecture usually means helping the principal architect in any planning, drawing and scheduling task around. It depends on the studio, but most of the time you're sitting on a desk helping with paperwork, drawing plans or help printing huge floor elevations and construction details which will be sent to councils and the required institutions to be signed and checked. I don't really know about this year's workflow but, last Summer I didn't actually stepped any work under construction nor my friends who have been on other medium-sized studios have. But, it's OK, as an architect's work is much more than just building things.

That said, and knowing that the closest I will be to gesso, wood and any kind of tools will be presumably while building some models at the studio, I needed to get prepared some outfit sets for work which were comfortable and suitable for a mostly office job, but also that defined my style and personality. As I always say, fashion helps us to express ourselves and say without words who we truly are. That's why I thought, a striped blue classy shirt with a twist could define quite well what kind of woman I am: mature, hardworking and resolutive; but also fun, feminine and cheerful. As I will be moving to the beach town this Summer and will be living there for work purposes and closeness to the studio, I needed to pack a bunch of versatile outfits (my favorite!) which allowed me going for dinner and have some drinks after job hours without putting a feet at home until nighttime. So, here is my little contribution of advice on how to properly turn your workday outfit into a night outfit with ease!

  • Neutrals are your best friends. When going to work I like to take the best out of my neutral pieces. Light pink, white, ivory and black of course are great colors which either work nicely at day or night. Bright colors are also great, but less likely to be paired successfully when going from one place to another.
  • Always accessorize. Be it minimal or a little bit more sparkly (don't overdo it, though!) accessories are the greatest for an outfit to turn from day to night. As in the pictures of this post, I used my red stone earrings as statement and unexpected piece to spice the whole look. I also like to wear a pair of overlapping minimal necklaces which look great with any kind of LBD or cute top.
  • Black & white. Absolute basics! These are my favorite to change from day to night anytime. A plain white T-shirt + skirt or pants in any sort of shape is the most versatile outfit ever. Swap the black for denim if you're looking for that casual touch. Accessorize or play a little bit with makeup and shoes. TOTAL WIN!
  • When in doubt, pick metallicsA light, shiny satin strap blouse works wonders in both situations, and when in doubt if you find it too showy, you can always wear it in top of a plain T-shirt to highlight it. Also, metallic strap sandals and flats are a nice way to make your outfit stand out of the crowd.
  • Don't underestimate the power of jumpsuitsJumpsuits are fun and very comfy. They let you move freely either at work or in case you end up partying at night (hey, life happens. Long live youth; either physically or at soul!). Jumpsuits are also able to be paired with jackets, high heels or flats, backpacks or little pouches. They always look great whatever you pair them up with!
