February Work Outfit Ideas for a Science Outreach Event

In January, the Science for Alaska Series started. Scientists of the university give talks about their research. Typically, the institute director introduces the speaker. However, he was out of town, and I had to jump in to introduce my colleague at the venue. I went for a business casual feminine look with a sheath and cardigan.

The audience typically dresses outdoorsy or very old worn-out clothes when a talk is about climate and has a provocative title like “Some like it hot.” The following photos are from the venue that took place at Ravens Landing, a senior living center in Fairbanks. More on what to wear when giving a public talk and more on professional looks for a science conference.

Over-the-Knee boots Are Office Appropriate in a Casual Work Environment

I love the combination of brown with pink/fuchsia. I combined my over-the-knee boots with my leather skirt for the office. More on how to wear over-the-knee boots over 40.

Styling a Scuba Summer Sheath for the Office in Winter

Once the weather allows, I start adding pieces from the warm season to my outfits as a winter to spring transition. This year, I was a little bit earlier as a Chinook brought some pleasant warm air. Ok, ok, what an Alaskan woman thinks is warm. Temperatures were still below freezing. But compared to 40 below they are warm and not worth wearing a bikini look.

Therefore, I wore my scuba sheath dress with a shirt underneath. The material of scuba clothing is actually in spired by the clothes used for surfing. The cut of the dress permits wearing it for work despite the fabric was made for play. See my February Lookbook on what to wear in Alaska on weekends.

British Classic Work Style

This outfit is what I call my British Classic. The recipe is take a pair of pants, a heavy wool glen check blazer (best with corduroy details), cardigan and romantic blouse or collar and, of course, chelsea booties.

Color Blocking

Color blocking is always a great idea. Here I went with orange and burgundy. More on color blocking formulas.

Styling Work Outerwear

When you are a regular reader, you know that I am a big fan of styling outerwear. It’s an outfit too. Therefore, style it to stay out of winter wardrobe boredom.
