Wearing Lately

Disclaimer: This is not an outfit post.

Since starting my new job I feel like I've learned how to step up my overall look. Whether it's to appear older, more mature, put my best foot forward or to mask my inside awkward feelings - it's making me feel more comfortable on a daily basis.

My new take on my style isn't temporary, it's the beginning of creating the personal branding that I've needed for some time now. When I can expect to have a new first impression each day I feel the need to do what I can to be memorable in a good way and subliminally send the message that I've got it together.

  • Doing my hair in curls every morning.

  • Planning outfits that are clean, simple and classy.

  • Strategically choosing accessories (including jackets and purses) that go best with my outfit.

  • Avoiding sneakers, casual wear and my beloved hoodies and zip-ups at all costs.

  • Carrying my moleskine planner everywhere with me - shows that I'm organized!!

  • Sticking to neutrals and earthy tones to avoid the risk of my outfit being louder than my words.

Look good, Feel good!

Lucky me I have a knack for finding great deals, only buy what I love and a mother who knows what I like and loves to add to my wardrobe.

Thanks to instagram I have a few photos to show you what I mean:

Grayling Jewelry (gifted) + scarf (gifted)

It makes me happy to 'play dress up' and has truly given me an additional layer of confidence lately.  Hoping to share more with you guys soon!
