The Woman: Karine
I’m a mechanical engineer by training but quickly realized it was not for me. It was obvious in retrospect, but at the time, the best indicator was that there were no engineering job post-graduation in a field that excited me. My first job was at McKinsey & Co in their Dubai office, and it allowed me to explore different industries and functions in short periods of time, while building a solid business skill set. I transferred to their DC office within a few years, and went to business school shortly after. Business school was also a great avenue to continue exploring, and I found that I was very excited about the technology space and explored it through classes, projects and my summer internship at Amazon. I landed a full time job at Braintree (a Paypal company) and have really enjoyed learning about the payments industry and being at a dynamic, fast paced growth environment!

This look is adds a modern twist to a classic black pencil skirt that should be a staple in every workwear closet. The Zara cross back sweater (similar style here), is perfect for happy hour. If you’re worried about the low back, wear a cute jacket over the outfit until you transition to date night. Top off this outfit with a nice pair of flats and a matching tote!
