0 In 31 Days/ Style

my lessons learned

Today I get to share probably my proudest achievement of the 31 days challenge — my very first style/inspiration board!  As I mentioned on Day 5, I’ve been wanting to do this for a while.  But, I knew I didn’t just want to throw it together and call it good. I wanted to take my time and make sure my font choices, layout, and overall aesthetic came across clearly. And I’m proud to say I did it! And within 20 days of setting the goal!

Inspired by my { soon to be revoked } unemployment status, here’s my guide and inspiration for dressing for an interview.

I’m a creative-minded person and I’m lucky enough to work in a field where a black pantsuit is not expected during an interview. If you’re the same, I suggest looking for ways to put across a semi-formal, sophisticated look with just the right touch of personality.

This balance can definitely be hard to strike. My tried-and-true method is a simple shift dress — but not pure black — amped up with some fun shoes { I’m ALL about the shoes } and one bold accessory.  When done correctly, this formula shows you’re polished and the right choice for the job, but also gives the interviewer a glimpse of who you are beyond that stuffy interview process. As an added bonus, you also give your interviewer(s) a few conversation pieces { should they choose to accept them }, thus allowing you to gauge your potential compatibility and fit for the job, company, and culture.

I would love your thoughts and comments! And, links for each piece is at the bottom.
