Working Girl Wardrobe | Shelby: Assistant House Manager

wg-shelby








Whether you're interning, working full-time, or job searching, you can never get enough workplace wardrobe inspiration. Business casual doesn't equal boring. Professional doesn't mean stuffy. New on The Lovely Side, we'll be spotlighting how young professionals, college students, and interns dress for work – combining office-friendly elements, chic style, and elements of their own personality.

Today we're featuring Shelby Converse, an assistant house manager for a theatre and the blogger behind A College Theatre Dork. Shelby's go-to clothing items for her position at the theatre include:


Classy Skirts
Skirts of acceptable lengths are must-haves for any young professional or interview-goer. Keep hems classy. (The office isn't a place for showing off skin.) 

Dark or Nude Tights
These also help keep an outfit office appropriate. Plus, they'll keep your legs cozy in cool spaces.

Bright Blouses
Working in the performing arts industry, a little drama (in the form of bold color) is a good thing!

Chic Jackets
Shelby has a go-to black blazer, but she's been switching it up with a dark tweed jacket lately as well.

Fast Flats
On days when she's going to be running around a lot, comfy flats are essential.

Power Heels
Heels lend their height (and a little extra sub-conscious respect from patrons) to Shelby's role. 

Black Basics
Shelby's favorite work outfit consisted of black skinny trousers, a black top, and a pinstriped vest under her go-to black jacket. (The pinstripes really popped!) With all that head-to-toe black, you'd think she was taking a cue from the tech crew – except she stood out in the front of house rather than blended into the backstage darkness.

Thanks for sharing, Shelby!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
