Not only am working on DC Wine Week and co-hosting an event appropriately titled Red, Burgundy & Plum: A Night of Fashion & Wine, but I was also selected to appear in Washingtonian Magazine's online site Shop Around Blog for their What I Wear to Work series.
Would you believe I am their FIRST pregnancy feature?
I had to come up with four different looks that I wear to work and describe each one depending on what part of my job I am handing that day. Being in PR I do about a million things at once, so describing my responsibilities wasn't difficult.
Oddly enough when it came down to actually putting the looks together, I got a bit overwhelmed. OH THE PRESSURE! I tried to vary up the outfits and not repeat shoes or major pieces. A bit tough considering my wardrobe isn't massive, but I made it work.
Here are my four looks and what I am wearing.

We shot around Old Town, Alexandria at night with photographer Kate Warren of Go Kate Shoot and after each shot, I just popped into local cafes to change into the next outfit. It was fun, but lots of work!
Glad I don't have to do that every day.
I do hope you read the full feature on Shop Around Blog where I go into more detail about my job and about each look.
Happy Friday everyone!
