Well, it's been a busy week.
I started a short work placement at a local advertising agency in the city, and I've spent the last few days working away on a project with them, whilst concentrating on my own digital marketing dissertation - it's a good thing I can multi-task! ;) I haven't had time to do much work experience in the past, so it's been great to have the opportunity to do something different and not be stuck behind my desk all day... Well, technically I still am, but at least I'm working on something completely new and exciting, and I'm able to get a taste for what real working life will be like (doesn't seem too bad so far...).
When I'm on a work placement, I realise I need to look smart and professional. Never one to conform easily to the usual white shirt and black skirt combo, I always reach for this old Zara number. I remember buying this dress about 3 years ago in the Zara store in London whilst on a shopping trip with friends. I remember how the cute and colourful print stood out from the usual palette of black and grey, and I was instantly attracted to the peter pan collar and swallow bird pattern. It's been a trusty, old favourite ever since and I tend to wear it to things like job interviews, internships and just general fancy events - It never fails to let me down. As I'm nearing the end of my student life and on the job search, will I be introducing work wear to you all? Who knows, but if it means I can wear dresses like this, then I can't wait!
