Volunteering to co-host the “Dress Like a Girl Challenge” with Melissa has prompted me to give serious consideration to how I present myself to the world. I work in an office that is home to both high level executives and hourly employees – I am somewhere in between, with work attire ranging from scrubs (it’s a health care company) to suits. I often feel as though I am not pulled together, polished, or something is just off with how I am dressing.
Then it hit me this morning as I was fiddling with the outfit that I had quickly thrown on before making my husband’s coffee, switching a load of laundry, and replying to e-mails. I am not devoting any true time to getting ready for my day. Yes, I put on business casual clothing, swipe on a bit of powder and lipstick, and check to make sure that my hair is not resembling a bird’s nest. But I never go beyond that. I am doing just enough…..and that is no longer good enough.
So today, I let the dishes sit in the sink, and went back to my closet to give serious consideration to what I was going to wear. Here is what I came up with (Please excuse the weird head tilt— posing is not my strong suit)
While I don’t want this to turn into a fashion blog, I will be posting my daily outfits for awhile, just to give me some accountability. Do any of you have tips/tricks/suggestions for dressing better?
