outfit post: 5 day work trip to client site




Here's consolidated graphic with the outfits & a checklist of what I packed & wore on my recent 5 day work trip to South Carolina to put on configuration workshops at a client site. It was nice & warm in SC - so it's all end of summer work-wear.

All of these outfits have appeared on the blog before because I find that wearing what I already know looks good, fits well & is comfortable helps my peace of mind in already complex enough situation of traveling for work.

Original posts with outfit details can be found:
**Side note - hee hee - I also put undergarments on my checklist for the first time because I always inevitably get that one email/comment on my packing list, "This packing list is SO UNREALISTIC! Where are your UNDERWEAR??" So that little item is just for you commando commenters! :)

  1. Sorry if this is a repeat post... I'm not sure if the comment I just made went through! I'd love to see a similar post but with much fewer items of clothing... this seems like a lot to pack for just 5 days. I'd like to challenge you to create a 5-day work trip pack list and outfits that is much more minimalist. The challenge is to have very few items to pack but to have the outfits look recognizably different. Will you accept the challenge? ;-)

    1. If you search the blog I've done a few 7X7 posts - those same spot on to what you're asking.

  2. I love this mix! Living in SC myself I get the warm weather comment. We still have a few more months of it! All of these outfits would be great! Just love them. You make it look so easy. I'm getting better because of posts like this so thank you!!
    Random question, similar to the commando questioners...do you change out of work clothes after work? If so will you add those clothes into the mix next time please? Like in a separate category? Unless that falls into the undergarments area, then you can ignore me.

    1. I did a full post about everything I bring on a work trip – http://www.outfitposts.com/2012/08/outfit-posts-reader-request-how-to.html

      But I promise next time – or even if I get a minute to update this one – I will make the checklist graphic include everything!

  3. I agree that you should keep your outfits simple and know what works - a work trip is not the place to experiment with different looks or be frazzled when something doesn't work. Been there, unfortunately! Great advice! Loved the post, your suitcase/travel wardrobe posts are my favorite.

  4. Love all of those looks! Not sure if anyone has asked previously but do you ever dress for pumping at work (if you do, I know you've said in the past that you breast-feed/nurse)? I work at a bank in back office support but I also visit offices so I need to look professional (business casual to business formal) but I struggle with making sure I can wear something that can easily come off on top to pump (which usually means not a lot of dresses).
