Career Reinvention: The New Dress Code

As I announced last week, I am my new boss!  I have started a new career working as a Marketing and Public Relations Consultant, Freelance Writer, and Blogger.  The support from so many has really encouraged me...especially the support from the stylish women of ORCHARD BRANDS,  who want us to Live Beautiful at Every Age.  Orchard Brands represents 14 retail catalogs for the stylish Woman 50+.  They sent me items from Drapers & Damons, and Appleseeds!
Now, of course, I will need to step up the wardrobe from high school teacher to marketing professional.  I will be at more events, and representing clients in the community.  So, the boss is setting a new dress code...confident and professional.  Orchard Brands selected some special pieces just for the new code!  I love this CLASSIQUE BLACK DRESS and the SIENNA BACK BUTTON JACKET and know I will wear them often.  It can be styled up or down for any occasion.  The jacket also comes in navy and khaki and is perfect for warmer weather as it is very lightweight and doesn't wrinkle.  ( Please don't comment on the flip flops...it was so hot on this day, my toes needed to breathe!) I will wear this with many different professional styles of shoes. 
The MYSTIC BREEZE BLAZER IN DRIFTWOOD and SLIMTACULAR SLIM LEG PANTS are fabulous. These pants are very popular because of their fit.  They come in 11 colors!  I love the fit of both pieces and they are perfect for meeting and visiting clients.  
Of course, great accessories make a difference and this TURQUOISE STATEMENT NECKLACE is fun.  I am so glad to have them as a sponsor of my reinvented career style!  I will show you a couple of other pieces they sent later.  But, you must check out their clothes...sale prices are on. 


Thanks ORCHARD BRANDS!  The boss approves!

HAVE A WONDERFUL BEGINNING
TO YOUR WEEK!
