Workweek Chic: Part 1

I haven’t made any secret of the fact that I have a fabulous career in corporate retail that I just love! I can’t complain about being surrounded by fashion- specifically gorgeous jewels- every day! I am the rare story of a girl who is actually living out her dream career. I’ve always know that I wanted to work in fashion, and the more I learned in college about corporate retail, the more I knew that was where I wanted to be. Four years in and I don’t regret for a day that I have made my dreams come true- I know that this is exactly where the Lord wanted me to be! 

However, working in an office 5 days a week means a certain “dress code”. Since I work for a fashion-forward retailer I definitely have a lot more flexibility in my clothes than if I worked for a traditional corporate office (for example, we always have the option to wear jeans to work), but that doesn’t mean I’m immune to those days when I need to be more “traditional”. 

So, I thought it would be fun to do a little “mini-series” on workweek chick outfits and show you three different looks for three different work scenarios that I encounter in my job. If you like it we can definitely do some more in the future! 🙂 

Today I tackle an “Executive Presentation” – or what I would wear when making a presentation to our executive committee. I love this outfit because it bows to the traditional while keeping my personality in it with the pop of bright coral. For occasions like this I think it’s important to keep your jewelry simple and classic- you don’t want to distract from the great things that you have to say!
