STYLE / 06

As a freelancer, client meetings can be scary, and sending the right message is important. But, professional attire can be so boring, right? It takes a little courage to mix two prints together (and then accessorize on top of that) but just embrace your inner β€œi like it, and don’t really care if you do.” I sometimes tone down their first impression a bit by covering up my colorful pizazz with a nice solid jacket, and then BAM! (see below) open up and reveal that I have no fear when it comes to my favorite styles. I think clients like confidence, and an outfit is an excellent way to show them that you have it.

    I love it! You just radiate creativity.

    Haha, loved the gif! I work for a bank, where everybody dress the same, all the girls dressed like men, and I don’t care, they may look at me like I’m a freak, but oh well, that’s me.

    Pink Ronnie says:

    Agree with Missy – you really do radiate creativity Bri!
    Love this outfit. I need to trim down my waist first (babies will do that) and then look at acquiring a few printed skirts for mixing and matching!
    (That GIF rocks.)

    I love the unexpectedness of this!! You know just the right tools to knock em dead!!

    Sarah Morgan says:

    This is so great! The pop of yellow is fabulous. I’m sure clients appreciate getting to see your personality!

    eva burns says:

    Gawh! I have that skirt and always wear it with a boring ol’ t shirt. Boring no more! Thanks for the pattern boost, Bri!

    Brittany says:

    I’m just cruising through your style posts for the bugillionth time and I love all of your huge rings. You wear one or two in almost every post and even though I’m not a big ring person, I’m seriously considering becoming one. Can’t wait to see the new style pics you guys took this weekend (Yes, I stalk you on twitter as well.)

    Avelina says:

    It’s very easy to find out any topic on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this post at this site.
