Hello Darlings, It’s your big day — you’ve been asked to do a job interview, your boss requested to meet, or you are presenting your amazing ideas at a conference. Regardless of the scenario, you want to make a positive impression! And, what you wear will set the tone for the entire occasion. It may be hard to believe a skirt, pant-suit, or a blouse can have such an influence, but fact is they can! What you wear will not only put you in a positive self-assured frame of mind, but it will portray the image you want your colleagues to have.
Aside from the challenge of preparing for my speaking segment, it was a challenge to decide what to wear. Very intimidated, I was on the verge of buying a boring grey suit! What horror, I know!
After a few hours, I had what felt like an epiphany. I figured that if I could go this far without sacrificing my passion for pink and girly tendencies, then I should probably stick with what I’ve found works best for my individual style once again. I grew this site in a belief that every woman has something unique and beautiful to offer, and that being comfortable with yourself is the best path to happiness. So I was going to resist being intimidated to conform, and instead spent an hour in my closet coming up with a look that was corporate enough but that was true to my style!

So when getting ready for an important corporate event, staying true to yourself and what you love might be challenging but with some objective thought it can be done. If you’re an overly girly girl who loves bows, then incorporate them in a subtle way. For me it was wearing a pair of Tory Burch heels that were classic but with a fun print and an adorable bow. Accessories and nail color are a great way to show off your personal style, and add some pop to an otherwise conservative and professional look.
There is nothing wrong with letting your personality and style shine through, because that is what can set you apart and above! Dressing for success is essentially believing in yourself and allowing your personality to shine through!
