Working Girl

Sunday, January 23, 2011

I don't know about you, but growing up I thought business clothing had to be boring. Even in college when they sent you to career fairs, you were suggested to wear black slacks and a white button down.  When I finally got a "real" job I knew I needed to start dressing more professional but, I'm sorry the whole waiter look was not going to work for me!! Over the last year I have been building a wardrobe that is professional yet stylish. Being a grown-up does not mean wearing mundane clothing everyday, you can still have fun while maintaining a polished look!! My total look cost.... (drum roll)..... $29.50.
This outfit is one I wear regularly when I am out marketing to my doctors. It is flirty and  professional at the same time!! I particularly love the red cheetah print blouse. Not to mention, Red is so in right now!! You can pair red with brown, teal and even purple.
