Business Time*

Skirt, James Avery 

Academia: Yesterday I gave a presentation to the hospitality council of my city about hosting international student volunteers in their businesses. It was at a lunch meeting with about 40 members of the local tourism industry, and it was my first time going to this kind of networking event, which was pretty exciting. I think it went well. I spoke for about five minutes about program, and handed out business cards afterwards. Side note: having business cards is the number three thing that make me feel like a legit grownup, after getting married and buying a house. 

Sartorial: Since this was the first time I had seen this group of people, I wanted to play it a bit conservative with my clothes. I love my jersey maxi skirt and my To Kill a Mockingbird t-shirt, but they  felt like a little too much for a business lunch. So I stuck with the basics: pencil skirt, solid colored blouse, blazer, and flats. Not my most exciting outfit ever, but I think it did the job it was supposed to do. And sometimes that's all you need from your clothes.

*Not that kind of business time.
