Looking at my schedule for the upcoming weeks, I'm realizing that with a handful of business events, meetings & projects on the calendar, I'm needing to scheme up some fall outfits that will keep me appearing professional, yet looking very much my quirky, style-focused self.  ...This comes from someone who is currently writing this while sitting at my desk in my running clothes and tennies. :)I feel fortunate to work in an industry that allows for lots of creative liberties when it comes to dressing, but rather than throw caution to the wind ALL the time, I think that striving for a polished look is an important and effective tool for entrepreneurial success.  (How's that for a lighthearted Thursday morning sentiment??)Today's Peppery Picks are a collection of pieces that are business-worthy when worn in an intentional way, and on their own would be perfect for creating a more experimental "off-duty" look.  I started with the abstract floral Erdem trousers and the sequined Alice + Olivia shell (both from one of my favorite shopping resources, eBay!), and continued on by adding classic basics to up the chic-factor and balance out the boldness.I'd love to know what you wear to work each day, and how the day-to-day environment has an effect on your sartorial choices... My style has changed so much every time I've switched careers, and I think it's so interesting to hear about the getting-dressed thought-process of others as it relates to their job!
