As I have mentioned before, I work as a Purchasing Manager at my family's business. I'm also somewhat a supervisor of other employees. So, you would think that I would always dress pretty professionally and business-like; but as you have seen in my daily outfit posts, that's not always the case.

I don't really need to dress too professional since our company's dress code is business casual. So everyday I still dress pretty much the same way I always do. But then there are days like today were I decide to dress more professional and businesslike. And you know what? It feels good! I feel very powerful and executive-like. I know I wouldn't like dressing like this everyday, but every now and then it's good to feel this professional.

Do you dress very professional to work or is it more casual?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this top:

  9. My work environment is very casual too - however I make an effort to dress up - well at least sometimes.
    It does give me a power "feel".

    This outfit is really flattering on you! I'm in law school right now so I can get away with more casual outfits, but while I'm working over the summer and when I graduate I'll have to transition to more professional attire. I'm a little nervous about it!
