Talbots: Dress for Success

as many of my followers know, i’m an advocate for strong, independent working women.  it’s important that we’re all trailblazers in our own right—big or small–in our daily lives.  and a key component of being an independent women is economic independence.  maybe you’re currently in the workforce or maybe you previously were. 

whatever the case, you know that to to achieve any form of independence not only takes hard work and diligence from our school days and beyond, but also the support from friends, family, and our communities around us.  let me know someone who helped you on your journey in the comments below.

to me, nothing says “strong” and “independent” more than black and white.  in a lot of ways, i’ve put together a simple but classic outfit. i’ve paired my centerpiece cardigan with a crisp white poplin popover and streamlined black ankle pants.  it’s the perfect outfit for most vocations, really.  and anyone can pull it off.  how are you thinking of wearing your cardigan?  what color combinations spell s-u-c-c-e-s-s for you?

    Who showed me how to be a strong woman? My amazing, beautiful, wonderful, strong Mom! She is still my north star, she is 97 and a half and is clear in mind, strong of heart, and full of faith. She was widowed at age 39, with five children. She made sure we all knew how loved we were and that she would always be there for us. I am strong because she taught me how to face life, no matter what.

    Talbots is good to do this each year. I still have a few of those cardigans from the past. The spectator shoes and bag are perfect companions to the cardigan and pants.

    Oh, and my mom definitely influenced me and helped me; she was such an independent force: she had a college degree when few women did, and stressed education for all of us. And once we were all in school, she worked as a chairman of a dept at a local school. She socked her entire salary away and invested it, which helped enable both my parents to retire at 50. They had a wonderful retirement. She was always kind-of ahead of her time, and she instilled a passion for life in us all. She was extremely talented and creative. I think of her impact on me every single day…xo
