Good Boss

I have a guest post entitled The Good Boss up on a new blog, The Ladies Have “IT” where four women at different companies decided to share their experiences in exhibiting “IT”. Chanda reached out to me to write a guest post, and with the recent retirement of one of my all time favorite bosses, I jumped at the chance to write something that would honor him.

My stepfather, owner and CEO of Cabell’s Directories, significantly contributed to the article. But any of the errors or omissions are my own.

Thanks, Chanda and Dave, for the opportunity to reflect on such a critical aspect of our careers – The Good Boss.

Started with…

These.

Then, I tried this jacket.

Hmmm. Maybe a longer necklace.

Nope. How about a shorter jacket.

Bien. Meilleur.

Shifting Speeds

I adore this shift dress. But it’s a different approach for me.

Simple with heels for work.

Matchy polish.

And for resort casual, I love these sandals.

Miss Me

I haven’t pulled this sweater dress from Missoni M out in a while. Paired with a double breasted CAbi jacket and cap toe pumps.

Kate Spade

I still dig her shoes.

Postpartum Style

I have a new appreciation for what carrying around anywhere from 20 – 50 extra pounds does to your joints, your spirit and self esteem, not to mention your wardrobe.

What have I learned?

1. Thank god for Zara. I have a yellow jacket with a little stretch I bought mid-pregnancy that has shuttled me well through the last 4 months postpartum.

2. Spanx can be layered. I am bullet proof.

3. Ponte knit dresses and love to Tory Burch.

Mixed Metals

I usually don’t like to mix metallics. But here, I have pewter Chan Luu necklace with gold accents, copper suede DKNY pumps with pewter t-straps, and a light metallic jacket. I am carrying a graphite ombre bag with gold hardware.

Next time, I am going to limit the look to two different metallics , tops.
