Thankfully the days of mirroring men’s attire for the workplace are gone. However, If I have a business meeting I still like to dress for the occasion. That includes a mix of classic styles and fabulous colors with a feminine touch. I call this my new power suit – and it suits me just fine.
Everything I’m wearing has been on repeat numerous times, which tells me they were good purchases. For my power look I paired this Ralph Lauren blazer, Anthropologie silk blouse, Zara trousers, Nina kitten pumps, BaubleBar earrings, Chloe bag and Kate Spade sunnies. I feel like a million bucks and ready to tackle the task at hand.
This is my negotiating face saying, “Is this the best you can do?” Ha-ha.
Although clothes can greatly enhance one’s confidence, it must start from within. When I feel uncertain or scared about a decision or meeting I take time to explore why I’m feeling that way. Generally it’s for a nonsense reason like, “what will they think”? Never let what they think become more important than what you think. When I was younger I was taught to “fake it till you make it”. There’s a grain of truth in that cliche because feeling 100% comfortable in your own skin is a life long work in progress. Keep on truckin’!
These are my new favorite Kate Spade sunnies. I love the black and pink design on the sides. Also, when I have a lot of color in my blouse there are times I trade in my traditional red lippies for a lighter color. Really enjoying this Bobbie Brown in Sandwash Pink.
When my day has been productive I’m happy. Now it’s time for food!
