Edith Head, costume designer and 8 time Academy Award winner said it best:
“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it”
I truly believe her. Ever since I’ve been more selective and experimental trying to figure out my personal style, I’ve been better at handling life. No, I’m not saying dressing up will make you rich or famous (though hello, this is the case for fashionable peeps who parade their OOTDs on Instagram–they become instafamous!) but it can lead to more opportunities for you which can eventually lead you to a better life.
Di ba when you wear something comfortable and nice more often than not it really makes you feel more confident about yourself?
Power dressing means literally dressing up to project an image of efficiency. Though I don’t go to office and most of the time I’m just running errands, (read: grocery, school, gym) it feels good to sometimes just dress up and feel important like I’m the CEO of my own company. Well in my case I am the CEO of our home and a VVIP to my kids. Heehee.
I don’t really have many pants nor trousers because there’s only a few that really fit me well–most of them all look the same to me kasi. So when I found this pair I gave it a try and whaaadayyyaaaknooow it fits perfectly, so go na!
As usual it’s a black and white outfit.
As to not make it too stiff and serious, I loosened the bow tie of my shirt for a more casual look.
Since I’m a mom, I opted to wear flats instead of heels. But this look would also be great if paired with black pointy pumps or peep toe heels in bright color.
Not an accessory kind of girl–not because I don’t want to but–because I tend to forget! So to make this outfit more relaxed and playful, I wore a headband.
Lakas make-lady boss. Makapag-grocery nga wearing this. 😉 Actually, I did went shopping in this outfit as seen HERE.
