Hi all! I’ve been interning at a nonprofit this summer and my biggest struggle at the start of my internship was trying to figure out what to wear to work. My internship is more on the casual side, so I would say this is how you would dress for a more creative and relaxed environment. When in doubt, just ask your boss what’s appropriate!
What to wear
For my first outfit, I wore a pink sleeveless button-down with a striped pencil skirt. This outfit is perfect for a summer internship, because it fits the professional requirement but won’t make you overheat! Usually things with a collar are a good go-to.
The first dress is perfect for my work environment because it fits the ‘three finger rule,’ meaning the straps cover the majority of my shoulders. It’s also a good length and hits just a little above my knees. I paired this dress with sandals, but if your workplace is a little more professional then you can definitely wear this dress with flats or heels.
My third outfit is pairing a red tank with navy dress pants. I find myself reaching for these pants more than often because my office can get freezing, but they’re lightweight enough to wear during summer.
Lastly, this dress is similar to the first one in length and goes well with heels or flats. The neckline is modest as well. If you get cold easily in your office, a jean jacket would pair perfectly!
Of course, I always bring a vitaminwater with me- there’s so many flavors and options to choose from, so you can even match it to your outfit if you wanted!
What to bring
Every day, I take this blue tote bag to my internship and fill it with my laptop, wallet, charger, keys, and lunch. I’ve been bringing vitaminwater with me lately to keep me hydrated and on top of my game during work!
Lucky for you, I have a secret discount on vitaminwater at Target for all my readers! Just follow these 3 steps:
- Go to your local Target
- Take a ‘Shelf Selfie’ in front of the vitaminwater shelf
- Text the picture to 89000 to receive the secret Cartwheel offer link for 15% off a 20oz vitaminwater
This is a look into what I bring every single day to work—including vitaminwater, of course! I’ve found that vitaminwater is the perfect drink to keep me energized and hydrated throughout the day. Personally, I’m a fan of the power-c dragonfruit flavor.
I also love the vitaminwater squeezed lemonade and focus kiwi-strawberry flavors. (See how the vitaminwater focus flavor even matches my outfit?!)
Here’s what I bring all laid out- my planner, graphic design tablet, laptop, chargers, wallet, lip balm and lipstick, and last but not least, a vitaminwater for the day! Since I’ve been drinking vitaminwater at work, my energy has definitely increased throughout the day. The biggest struggle I had when starting my internship was getting used to working the full 9-5 job, so having one of these at lunch was perfect to keep me on top of things.
