Work It Wednesday: Legal Interview Edition

Jacket: The Limited, Top: Forever 21, Skirt: Forever 21, Bag: Zara, Shoes: Zara, Watch: Michael Kors

As you know, it's OCI season for law schools right now.  This means back-to-back interviews and a whole lot of ... corporate apparel.  To be honest, I used to hate suits and the idea of wearing suits.  Whenever I would wear one, it just didn't feel right because I never felt like myself.  It was strange at first, but now I feel so so comfortable!  I definitely feel a lot more official in a suit and it always helps when all of your peers are rocking it as well.  

One thing that I did struggle with early on was finding nice and affordable pieces that I could wear to interviews and networking events.  I ended up splurging on a nice pant suit from The Limited.  I still feel that blazers/jackets should be a bit of a splurge, but I've noticed that with bottoms, it's often okay to go a cheaper route.  I just try to find pieces that compliment my nicer tops and I definitely try to keep the two shades as similar as possible.

  1. I always go into The Limited and want to purchase something but I have nowhere to wear it formally. I love that bag!

    1. Thank you ! literally i only started shopping there because I needed a suit for law school events/interviews. It is a great place for necessary business clothes, but you're right, if you don't need it you're better off shopping elsewhere :)
