To wrap up the month of May I decided it would be best to end out SKIRTS with a bang. For Look 4 I complied pieces that are nothing like you average black pencil work skirt but still very much appropriate for a Business Casual dress code. Each skirt has its only personality to it and if it matches yours I suggest you give try it out! When deciding which top to wear I would keep in mind that these skirt steal the show on their own, so keep it classic! Which May work-wear outfit was your fave?  Look 1, Look 2, or Look 3?

Women In The News-Sophia Amoruso

It’s hard to not be inspired by Sophia Amoruso, CEO/Founder of Nasty Gal, who is thee ultimate symbol of the Effortless Composition ‘personal style+personal career’ motto. I have not yet read her book #GirlBoss which details how she grew the online clothing shop into a multi-million dollar company, but I plan to soon.

This video came across my desk and really bumped it up on my to do list. Watching the clip reassured me that my dreams are worth pursuing, unconventional and all! The quick interview with the Wall Street Journal touches on being the CEO Nasty Gal and the work wardrobe. I had to share it with you ladies and I hope it gives you the inspiration you need to conquer the week.
