Day 95 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project was a day to get a lot of things done. Between working from home and running around to take care of things on the personal and professional side, I still needed to be pulled together to present myself in public. Though there’s a tendency for today’s busy women to throw on yoga pants, a T shirt and flip flops if not in the office, I still believe we can be comfortable without looking as if we simply don’t care.
Besides, I love being a girl and would rather be in a comfy, pretty dress for business casual than pajama pants. I’m always shocked when I see women leave the house looking as if they just rolled out of bed. It’s not a look that leaves the impression most of us want to! There’s looking like we work hard for the money and looking like “She Works Hard for the Money”! Taking a little time to slip on an easy care grab and go dress or pants and top in fun colors is just as fuss free as sporting drab athletic attire. And running a brush through hair and adding a dab of makeup does wonders for the self esteem and boosts the spirit.
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Chick who wants to share my styling tips with others, I’m including a list of what to look for if you like this look:
Get the Getting Things Done Grab n Go Look
- Easy care dresses, pants, and tops in fun, solid colors.
- Lightweight cardigans, shrugs, or jackets in staple colors (i.e. white, black, khaki).
- Colorful shoes with details such as perforation, stripes, or hardware.
- Quality handbags to pull look together and keep you organized.
I hope this inspires you to build your wardrobe with these pieces. They transition well into fall and even winter when layered with sweaters, tights, and boots and will more than pay for themselves with years of function and fun. Especially if you purchase them at affordable discount stores like my go-tos: TJMaxx or Marshall’s. And I recently found some of my favorite brands at Burlington Coat Factory. All that to say, if you follow these styling tips and score them at a good price, not only will you be able to get things done in grab n go green (or any other color in the rainbow), you’ll save some while you’re at it. Now that’s being Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose!
