It has been awhile since I have done a written post. Currently I am experiencing some technical difficulties with my camera but I did not want to take too long of a break from my blogging pals. I miss you guys! So I am going back to my first love of writing to give you this post!
As someone in my late twenties, the struggle of finding a professional outfit that still showcases who I am as a person has been real. I often find myself wandering stores looking for anything that doesn’t make me look like a middle aged women. With that focus in mind, I often lose sight of what I actually like to wear.
I find myself saying things like “that’s not horrible”, “at least its versatile”, “it’s comfortable at least.” And that is not at all what I want for my daily wardrobe.
Lets face it, I am at work more than I am not. So if my personality does not shine in my work wardrobe, when can it?
But lets be real, my fashion taste includes leather, spikes, and anything edgy. How do you make that professional?
Aria Montgomery has done it right. She is edgy, chic and professional. But honestly, crop tops and mini skirts won’t work in my line of work. Even though she rocks it hard! Aria you get me but I can’t imitate you.
Then there is Melissa from Melissa and Joey. She rocks the sexy side of professional which I love. She doesn’t really rock the edge but I could dig her clothes. But the price tag is certainly not something I dig.
Then there is Rebecca Bunch from Crazy Ex Girlfriend, she rocks professional pretty hard but I think its a little too “cute” for me.
Oh and lets not forget Alicia Florrick from The Good Wife. Her style is amazing but just a little too matronly for me.
So what is a girl to do?
I will be honest I still haven’t quite figured it out yet but I have pieced a few things together.
I need a good statement necklace, or two or five. I need some patterned well patterned everything because patterns bring the edge. And I need some fitted tops. Sex appeal with class.
I think I have my work cut out for me. It may be awhile before I find the wardrobe that works for me but the quest is important.
What do you do when searching for the perfect style to fit your daily life? Do you rock what you want to rock? Do you copy cat your favorite TV fashonista? Or are you a drone of the office attire regardless of how you feel?
