There are so many incredible organizations that help, guide, and support those in need. I am passionate about many of them. However, one organization in particular has always been of interest to me. Dress for Success!
When I learned that the Connecticut PANDORA stores were working with Dress for Success, I couldn’t imagine a more natural partnership. Both brands are fueled by the desire to inspire, empower, and encourage women in different ways & I am so honored to help spread their message today!
When it comes to fashion, especially in the professional environment, many women or girls may not know where to start. I have a few personal tips to keep in mind when putting together an interview outfit, but they can all be combined into one cardinal rule:
1. Keep it simple.
Simple clothes, simple accessories, and simple makeup. That’s not to say you can’t put a little personality into your look & make it your own, but I think that less is more.
I wanted to share one of my go-to looks that always makes me feel both comfortable & confident when heading into an interview, meeting, or professional event!
Shop this look:
Turtleneck (similar) // Ankle Pants (similar) // Heels (similar) // PANDORA ESSENCE Bracelets
Turtlenecks are without a doubt my favorite kind of top – in addition to being timeless, I find them comfortable & flattering as well. They’re conservative & easily styled with most pants, skirts, and even some dresses. For this look I opted to pair them with ankle slacks from Banana Republic, and black kitten heels.
I kept my accessories minimal, but meaningful. I styled this outfit with three sterling silver bangles featuring a mix of ESSENCE charms from PANDORA. I chatted about the ESSENCE Collection a few months ago, and explained how these delicate pieces symbolize the unique values, traits, and styles of women. Once you design your own bracelet, your unique combination serves as a physical representation of your personal brand ….right on your wrist! 🙂
This entire week, the Connecticut PANDORA stores will be donating 15% of their ESSENCE sales to Dress for Success. In addition, they’ll be hosting in-store events on Saturday, October 29th! They’ll be collecting gently used business attire, hosting a raffle, offering refreshments, and giving away an amazing gift with purchase…
If you’re in the Connecticut area, be sure to take advantage of this promotion (out-of-state readers, check your local stores too)! Stop by & pick up something nice for yourself, a friend, or family member… & support a wonderful organization at the same time.
