I told all of you in January that I was going to do a reinvention touch up this year, and it has been a step by step process. The most recent step was how I dress to work events.
Recently, I had to work an event downtown in front of The Alamo. It was going to either be a clear and hot day, or a rain soaked muggy day. It ended up being a little bit of both. It is a challenge when I have to work as a reporter…stay cool…professional…and mobile. Below, is how I typically dressed to work events like this.
However, I wanted to lighten the look, but still be professional, with more color. San Antonio is a colorful, multicultural city and when working a San Antonio event, I wanted a touch of that style. I took the look below and still wore it with my sneakers and my leather backpack bag…free hands are so important when working a camera and taking notes.
You will notice in the first picture I also wore this with a black tank. It is that slimming, column style I like and I felt perfect in this look. I never got hot…OK, maybe a little (but from sun, not clothing)…and my sneakers kept me on the move easily. They looked great with this look. I am pleased with taking my event wear up a little and it provided the needed confidence to walk up to key people and interview them.
Is there any part of your style you have really changed up lately? Please share if you like, and enjoy the slide show below.
