Amy the Intern

As well as slaving away at my regular job, I recently spent two weeks working with Aigua Media and it’s fair to say, I loved every second of it!

I’ve been asked by a few friends to write more “what I’m wearing” posts, so I thought I would kick start it by sharing with you what I wore for my internship. Job interviews, internships and volunteering positions are notoriously difficult to dress for – most of us always feel under or overdressed, no matter how much research we’ve done. So what DO you wear on that all important first day?

What to wear to an internship

I chose dark grey jeans as apposed to trousers as even in my mid twenties, black trousers have the ability to make me feel as though I’m back at school. The salmon oversized shirt has rolled sleeves, giving it more of a relaxed look, and I layered with a chic coat from Paris, accessorising with a satchel big enough for my laptop and my lunch. Finally, I opted for comfortable flat shoes as I knew I’d be doing a lot of running backwards and forwards – why suffer in heels? I suppose it also helps that I’m 6’1 and don’t need the additional height…

All in all, a logical outfit consisting of a few basic yet fashionable favourites and comfortable classics.
