Pink & Professional

Do you have an outfit that makes you ooze confidence?  This is mine!


Dress:  Lilly Pulitzer (similar) | Blazer | Sandals | Earrings

Most days, I skirt the line between a fun outfit and a professional outfit.  I don't think that sitting in an office all day necessarily means that you have to look or dress boring, so I've started pulling out my favorite "fun" dresses and throwing a blazer over them!





Also, I'm kind of having a hair conundrum, y'all!  Do I grow it out or chop it again?  Go more towards my natural brown or get extra blonde highlights?  I'm so indecisive!

Do y'all have an outfit that makes you feel super confident?  I'd love to hear about it!

Happy Friday Eve!!

XX,

SS

  1. Not sure if I have a specific outfit that makes me feel confident, but red is my power color. Whenever I need to feel confident, I try to incorporate it somehow in my outfit.

  2. I love wearing more fun dresses to work -- makes it less boring.
    I like to throw a cardigan over mine because the Texas heat is a little too brutal for a blazer most days.
    Such a cute look!

    1. I agree! Some workdays just need a pop of excitement :) I'm cold natured, so blazers work year round for me, but I can definitely see where you're coming from! Happy Friday! Xo

    1. Thank you! A friend was cleaning out her Lilly collection and sold it to me at an amazing price! I had hair down to my belly button, and then chopped it to my shoulders in January. I love how much easier it is, but I only know how to style long hair. Haha. Thanks for letting me vent my indecisiveness in this comment ;) Happy Friday, love! Xo

  5. I love incorporating fun pieces into professional looks. Your hair color is so pretty how it is now-is that how it is naturally or do you have highlights?

    1. It definitely makes the work days a little brighter :) You're so sweet! I have highlights right now, but they've really started to grow out.

  6. Of course I have a go-to look for interviews or giving a speech, but most days it is just random pieces of clothing.

  7. You look awesome! I'm supposed to dress in business formal for work, but I definitely flirt with the line of being too casual (don't tell my boss!) on a daily basis. I can't pinpoint a specific outfit, but I throw on one of my Lilly dresses when I have an event or need an extra special boost.

    As for your hair- I say chop it for summer! It makes getting ready so much easier and is cooler when you have less hair on your neck! Also on that note, you'll get some natural sun highlights if you spend time outside with your hair down so that could be a lower-maintenance alternative to highlights!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. We're business casual here, but I know my boss would prefer it if I wore a suit every day. (It's just really not feasible... Those things are expensive!)

      I think chop is going to win... It has grown out so quickly that I know I can have it longer again for fall and winter.

      Happy Friday, love bug! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Xo

  8. That's such a cute outfit! I like how it really makes a fun dress work appropriate.

    You should get shoulder length hair! It's nice having short hair in the summer- it is so much cooler, and I bet you'd look great with shoulder length hair!

    1. Aww, thank you!

      I am definitely leaning more towards shorter hair... especially since mine has reached that fun length where it tangles constantly.

      Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Sarah! Thanks for stopping by :) Xo

  9. Love how you added the blazer. It's the perfect professional touch while still keeping it young and fun! Love!

  10. You look fabulous! I absolutely adore blazers, especially comfy ones I can throw over a casual outfit to make it look more "put together" but still be casual and comfy to my liking!

  11. Blazers make anything more professional. That is truth, and it makes your fun dress pop out even more! Hahaha. I think you would look great with shorter hair, but that's coming from a short hair enthusiast.

    1. I don't think I could rock the super short hair like you do, but I think it's time to cut a few inches off! Happy Friday, Bash! Xo

  14. I love this outfit! This would definitely be something I would wear! I will take ANY excuse to wear Lilly! As for your hair I think it would look cute either way but I'm a huge fan of long hair especially for summer because there are so many fun hairstyles you can do with long hair!

  15. Love how bright the pink is, and that blazer completely tones things down! I love it, and for a change, chopping your hair off would be a great idea!
