What I’m Wearing: My Business Suit

August 26, 2010

For a day spent in and out of meetings I like to put on my business suit.. well, my interpretation of the business suit! A kimono, sequin belt and lime green trousers reads professional business woman, right? I guess in my book, it does.

Over the course of the summer I have picked up a few new statement pieces (the sequin belt and those killer earrings), and they inspired today’s business attire. I needed an excuse to cinch in the waist and show off the belt so high waist pants and a body suit seemed like the perfect combination. To complete the look I tossed on my kimono and slipped on my black pumps (very classic business woman) and turned to the door.

Before dashing out, I clipped on my earrings and braided one side of my hair to make sure they had their proper debut.

Business woman is now ready to conquer to world!

    Given how productive we were yesterday, I think you made the right choice with your bizzness casual duds. The braid, however, still has my mind in knots. I don’t know how you do it yourself. When I try, I look like a 2-year-old with very limited motor skills.

    Great look! Love the kimono jacket. This outfit is a perfect example of what I mean in my blog post “Work Wardrobe” about the difference between dressing for work in a corporate office versus a creative industry job like media, advertising, etc. In a creative industry job, they actually expect you to be “creative” in your wardrobe choices.
