Today, I’m teaming up with Dress for Success to donate 10% of any sales from this blog post to empowering women to achieve economic independence. In case you’re not familiar, Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that provides a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. As for my own professional journey…
Last spring, I took a major leap of faith and left my job in information technology to start my own business doing online marketing. It’s easily one of the best career and personal decisions I’ve ever made, and I’ve learned and grown so much over the past year and a half. It hasn’t been easy (not by a long shot), but I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world.
One of the most refreshing aspects of being a #LadyBoss is that I get to set my own schedule (mostly, ha!) and dress however I please since I’m now in a more creative field. In fact, I’ve only had to wear a suit once in the past 3 months… Hallelujah! With that being said, I still like to look professional and polished, especially when I’m doing a presentation or meeting with clients. I definitely feel most confident when I’m wearing COLOR and a great pair of shoes, and I think this outfit fits the bill perfectly. I’d love to hear your story of what you wear to feel confident, so drop me a line in the comments!
Below are a few of my favorite go-to brands for office wear. On December 8th and 9th, 10% of sales from my blog will go to Dress for Sucess AND ShopStyle will match this contribution $1 for $1. And be sure to check out the ShopStyle Bloggers Give Back page for more inspiration.
