Do you ever have those days where you jump out of bed in the morning and can't wait to get started on a fantastic new work project?
Lately, I have been having those types of mornings a lot. One major reason is that I started this blog, but also because I recently received a promotion at work. It's a nice feeling to be validated for not only what you do, but most importantly "how" you do your work. The reason why I like this outfit for work is because it represents an attitude of fierceness, ready to accomplish a lot and take on whatever tasks the day may bring. However, I usually wear a cardigan over all of my tops at work for a more polished and professional look (so I would advise that when styling also). Southern California is a bit more casual when it comes to work attire, so how you style this outfit for work just depends on your office dress code. When I have something really important to do, I usually wear red and black. Why? Red is powerful and people notice you wearing red in a crowded boardroom or when giving an important presentation. Black is also powerful, but classy and sophisticated. I would also advise wearing a black suit with a red blouse or button up collared shirt (no leopard print LOL) to a job interview. This will make you stand out and you will probably have a better chance of being remembered for the position. Let me know if you do this and it works. Peplum is my new "old" love. The reason why I say "old", is because it is an old style adopted from the 40's, but is a look that really is timeless. I also like peplum because I think it's a nice feminine style that looks great on most women. When choosing accessories, I chose black because red is so bold and I wanted the shirt to be my focal point. When choosing accessories; it's always a good idea to make sure that the gold or silver hardware on your belt, jewelry, shoes or bag match for an overall cohesive look.
Hope you have a Fashionably Fierce and Fabulous Work Week!
