Being professionally polished isn’t always exciting, but knowing you have wardrobe staples you can count on when you need to look your most groomed and put together is important.
When I need to look well groomed but reserved (ex: meeting a new client for the first time, major presentations, etc.) I opt for the classics and let my good basics make a polished statement.
I found this all grey suit in 2012 when I transitioned from software consulting into traditional management consulting in O&G (aka from a world of color and candor, into black and white formality). Here I’m wearing the suit together, but it works great as separates too – the dress is the grey version of my black sheath dress that finally wore out – I wear the grey a bit less than black, but it too has had repairs to prolong its life expectancy.
My scarf is the same from the last post, just tied differently. I love how wearing scarves instantly changes an outfit, while pulling it all together – they give a limited wardrobe some additional mileage and intrigue.
Find good classic basics and you’ll always be professionally polished.
All my best,

Sometimes we stun, sometimes we’re sleep deprived – but no matter what the day brings we have to be savvy; and self-care helps! Sitting in my hotel after 38 hours with no sleep – took a red eye in to my client last night, and went right to work and have been working...
