Conservative & Professional

Conservative & Professional

Sometimes I think that if I hear that phrase one more time, I just might lose my mind. Given my career choice, however, "conservative and professional" is much more than just a phrase. It's exactly what I have to be. I've mentioned before how it's often a struggle. I don't want to sacrifice who I am or my personal style, but I also can't afford don't want to be known as "the girl with the weird necklace" or "the one with the strange clothes."

Conservative & Professional

Much like one of my favorite bloggers, I tend to mix solid separates and typically avoid overly bold prints. I also keep my jewelry to a minimum, often settling for pearls or small chandelier earrings like these. And while this outfit isn't the most fashion-forward, it's {mostly} work appropriate. The only thing I changed was the shoes. Too eye-catching, but lovely none the less.

You look incredibly polished, poised, and lovely. I like to wear skirts, tights, nice ruffled blouses, and coats to work.
