If these photos look familiar, it’s because they were published last week with a post aptly titled “Never Professional.” A post that my employer deemed unprofessional and “requested” I remove. Consider this a re-do. As I’ve shared before, I am relatively new to the working world. Not that I’ve never worked before (I wish); rather that I’ve always been a creative. In other words, I never sat a desk until last year. Though sometimes challenging, the transition from artist to working woman has been pretty successful. While, for the most part, I am able to conduct myself as a professional, it’s been a challenge attempting to dress like one. Or, more to the point, a cute and stylish one. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought of office wear as kind of drab. Suits and slacks leave me stifling yawns. Not to mention that my closet was not stocked with the corporate world in mind. But I’ve made due, gotten creative and adjusted some of my play clothes into work clothes. This jumpsuit is a perfect example. Super chic and easy to dress up or down, I’ve found that, when worn with a pair of pumps and buttoned up a bit higher, it becomes office-appropriate. Or, at least, it passes for professional. Which is pretty much what I’m doing anyhow.
