from 9AM to 6PM, I transform into & play the role of business professional. it’s me; just a more polished version. I increase my coffee intake, carefully filter any ‘adult language,’ and contently sit in one chair for 8 hours each day. but consistent with my personality ..I have fun, laugh nearly too much, and know my appearance plays an important role. when I look like a professional, I feel + act like a professional. [and there’s just something about a fresh manicure]. but in all honesty, it directly affects my confidence.
there’s no need to sacrifice fashion. but do it in a way that you feel comfortable.
for me .. I keep my heels low [my feet are happier + I’m not as loud in the hallways]. and if I wear tighter work pants [like these ‘career leggings’], I make sure my bum is covered. there is a time + place to show off my assets, and it’s not in front of my boss, or clients.
but I stay true to me; vibrant + young, with an “I’m here to get things done” edge.
cover your bum :)
but with anything, have fun – wear bright colors. accessorize. show your personality.
and then when you get home, change into sweats & pile your hair as high it will go on top of your head. like me right now. and say to your fiancé: “I’m so happy you love me for exactly who I am” and “I work hard for my money”. the end.
it’s date night; wings, beer, & basketball.
don’t let me forget to tell you my story of wednesdays.
