Monarch Butterfly: Spreading My Wings to Fly

So on my first day of truly taking a work picture with my iPhone, I was more than thrilled with the results. The clarity and accuracy even small subtle detail that weren’t picked up before.

But the best part is wearing the earrings I was given, Monarch Butterfly wings. How cute right. If you look closely in front of my hand you can tell. Butterflies are always spreading their wings to fly to head to their destination. And I feel that this is exactly what is happening to me – me being able to spread my wings and fly without any worry or hesitation.

SO my outfit below is what I wore to work. And for some reason I felt more confident that day than ever. The almost all black attire with cute heels elongated my height, I will take that any day.

Launching Step to Your Next Career

Now, this look I absolutely love because it’s a reminder that you have to show up willing to look the part to occupy your dream job.

In case you hadn’t seen the post – here’s 3 style options to wear to an interview.

If you were to live in clutter it has a natural effect to hamper your ability to think and focus. But when your space is clear and clean much like your appearance it does wonder to your overall attitude and character.

So, if you are headed to a meeting or interview where the need to impress is a must, lighten up and dress your best. And remember the moment you walk out the door is your next step to a career changing moment.

Workwear Fashion: Raining? No Problem – Casual Style for a Rainy Day!

#ragandbone #sweater #bcbg

Although the weather has been quite warm and pleasant in the south, it appears back home in Chicago it is not.

With that said, on cold and rainy days I love having go-to options for casual wear that keeps me warm and comfortable while still making a fashion statement.

My look with a messy bun is wearing Rag and Bone sweater with BCBG leggings and fur trim boots bought from Carsons.

BrittanyKnows Workwear: Old Hollywood Glam Meets Street

With all that is going on I was inspired by Mary Mary’s song, Go Get Your Blessing. Very energetic mind you. You might want to checkout my dance piece before I mention the style choice for workwear here.

All I could think about was moving and shaking before I went to work.

And best of all when I purchased this I tried the top on with these leather pants I owned much earlier so it was a glamorous mistake because who would think to pair this attire together.

Monday Rain! Ugh – I’m Going to Be Late Because I Now Have Nothing to Wear

I just want to say, don’t you miss the days back in school where maybe if it rained too hard there’s a chance you could skip? Or you were so little and tiny you nestled perfectly under any item your mom bought you to protect from the changing weather patterns? OR what about when it seemed much easier to not have to invest so much time in what you were wearing because you were little, a kid, who cares, right?

Well, it rained on us and I wasn’t aware of the rain coming. In fact, I had my outfit picked out the day before and was ready to march. set. go. when I woke up. Didn’t happen, had to quickly adjust which means – yep – I was now running behind schedule.

Where’s My Air Time? Dressing for An Interview to Land that Dream Job!

I remember when I was in high school I always put my best foot forward, regarding my attire for an interview. Plus my mom made sure of it, lol. I knew the culture was to dress very formal and appear executive-like. Well, it certainly helped over the years because I remember later on hearing awful stories of people appearing at an interview like they were at a beach or didn’t bother to wear the appropriate jacket.

Here’s the thing, you want to set the mood, the tone of the conversation. But if your appearance gives the impression you don’t care, well, how do you think the rest of the interview will go?

BrittanyKnows Workwear: Fit for a Marvel Superhero – Red Pantsuit Style

Avenger’s movie is almost here and I had been waiting to release my style work wear option as a celebration moment. I non-purposely created a look with similar theme colors but a very fun yet casual style nonetheless.

My red cape pantsuit and layered underneath with a v-neck long sleeve blue top.

Simple and bright and can be worn with pumps or flats. Since my hair had given up on me I wore it with a hair bun to complete the look and it looked even better by doing so.

BrittanyKnows Workwear: Handbags In My Closet, Burberry vs Louis Vuitton

While I don’t have a wide collection of handbags my reasoning for starting a collection may or may not be different from the norm.

I believe as you move up in your career there’s an image you want to project and sometimes through life it gets adjusted as your income level increases, maybe the position you occupy or even style influences by the location you reside.

BrittanyKnows Workwear: MaxMara Dress Paired with Jimmy Choo Shoes

Channeling Walk Like an Egyptian song, which I Iove. This blue dress is wonderful with the contrasting dark tones and texture from the cotton blend sleeves that are dark blue and the middle layer a lighter blue tone. To add a lighter tone and flavor I paired it with taupe colored Jimmy Choo Shoes.

This look is great for all seasons and especially the winter although I wouldn’t wear Jimmy Choo when snow is on the ground.
