Stepping into Spring!
Everything is blooming here in Florida, from the azaleas to the pretty pink Tabebuia trees, and the spring sunshine is in full force. It’s around this time of year where Floridians really start to soak in all of the nice weather before it gets too hot in the summer, so we take everything al fresco – lunches, movies, and even business meetings!
But speaking of business meetings, I don’t know if you are like me, but I always have trouble dressing for business meetings, especially those in the spring! Winter is easy but spring? You want to be more colorful, playful, and fun. When choosing an outfit for an important meeting, I want to make sure that the overall look is both polished and creative. As a creative business woman, I think it’s important to show you can be both! When I checked the schedule and saw we had quite a few meetings coming up, I thought I might need a quick little wardrobe refresh. I stopped by JCPenney, and this is what I found!
But, before we go any further, let’s just go back to that whole JCPenney thing for a second. I haven’t stepped foot into a JCPenney in a long time. Honestly, I think it’s because I never really go to the mall all that much, so when I had the opportunity to swing by our local store last weekend (I was on a mission!) I did so. I found so many cute affordable pieces, like this head to toe (seriously, even the shoes and bag!) outfit, plus this bell sleeve pink top, and this really cute off the shoulder dress. I was shocked and actually kicked myself for not going in more often. Everything I bought was a little over $200 in total, which is NUTS.
While browsing the store, I found two brands that worked well for my aesthetic, Worthington & a.n.n. Both brands had quite a few pieces that I ended up taking to the dressing room with me! And I’ve got to be honest with you, I wore this pretty pink lace top last Sunday at church and received HANDFULS of complements. Seriously, it was such a hit! I can’t tell you how many people I sent to JCPenney on Sunday, so now… I’m sending you!
I am so excited about all the things I picked up especially these floral pants and this bow sleeve top. Both of these I can wear together for a business meeting and split apart just as easily for a more casual look. I’m thinking my next outfit will be the floral pants with a pair of white converse sneakers and a chambray shirt! Wouldn’t that be adorable? For now I am definitely wearing this outfit for our next big meeting, wish me luck!
