It's the summer before senior year and internships are SO important as we head into our final year as students. Making a good impression on the job is key, but it's also important to dress for the part.

As college students, employers almost expect that we are disheveled and unprepared and it's our job to go above and beyond to prove ourselves. Beyond being responsible and timely with your assignments at work, it's important to dress to impress. You don't want to wear what you wear on the weekend with your friends, but that doesn't mean you can't recycle some key pieces in the office from your everyday look. 

I love my white tank from this look. It's so versatile and I can easily wear it to work or at a nice restaurant in the city, it literally goes with everything. The slacks I'm wearing are THE BEST! They no longer come in the pattern I'm wearing but the exact same pant in different colors is linked above. They are so comfortable and have some stretch to them, so they are perfect for the 9-5. My only complaint is that they only have faux pockets. 

I wear the lace-up flats from this look all the time, seriously! I got them last fall from Steve Madden and was worried at first that they would only be good for just the fall season but I actually have been able to wear them a lot this summer, despite their darker color. My bag is also so useful, despite the fact that it's HUGE! I've found that the size is perfect for an internship setting, especially since I have to lug my laptop back and forth on the CTA each day. I also like to be over prepared for whatever may come my way during the workday, so this bag can fit anything I may need. Lastly, I always wear a watch at my internship so I can quickly check the time without pulling out my iPhone. I love my Kate Spade watch, the face is the perfect size and it is so high-quality, I know I'll have it for a long time.
