Starting out a career often feels like a bit of a roller-coaster full of excitement, disappointment, mistakes, learning, and so much more. It is sometimes tough to know exactly where to go next and how to get what you want in the end. As two girls working our way up in the world, the VOF team can attest to this great advice from Forbes.
As for what to wear, VOF loves the looks featured above. Make sure to dress for your specific career and put a bit of personal flair into anything you wear.
1. The Designer and Architect. Try out color and Prints. Don’t be afraid to stand out and show your personality. After all, your overall style is why your clients will inevitably hire you.
2. The Marketer and PR Expert. Marketing and PR fall somewhere in the middle. They are creative fields, but are still set in a business environment. Try out more subtle colors with a hint of texture and bling.
3. The Lawyer and High Powered Business Woman. These fields require keeping it tasteful. Try stepping away from the suit and adding a textured jacket with a fun watch to add some personality to your look.
Sometimes life gets really hectic and you have to take just a few minutes to step back and clear your head. Although I see some overtime in my future this weekend (bleh), I’ll be spending Sunday picking figs and making jam with the beau and his gram. I feel soooo southern. Living here has taught me that I don’t always need to have fifty things going on at once, sometimes you have to learn how to relax. How will you relax this weekend?

It’s finally Friday. This week, I opted out of my work out routine in favor of making delicious food (check back next week for a mouth-watering polenta recipe), watching reality television, and scouring the interweb the perfect content for this week’s Friday Report. Seems like a fair trade, right? (My body disagrees, seeing as it has a date with a swim suit this weekend.) Since there’s no point in dwelling in the past, I present to you, lovely followers, the Friday Report:
