Making a Statement

Sweater (Steinmart); Skirt (Eva Franco, Enza's Boutique); Necklace (Jazzy Jewelry Indy); Purse (Charming Charlie); Boots (Schutz; Amazon)
"You are always so serious about your job and so thoughtful with your counsel, but I appreciate that you smile with your clothes." This unsolicited statement from a longtime client after a recent meeting on matters of much more substance than what I was wearing really resonated. You don't have to wear a navy blue suit to be taken seriously, but what you wear does make a statement about who you are, so think about what you want to say! My own workday style is "professional with personality," so my colleague's comment was much appreciated.
Lately, I've been wearing a lot of "statement necklaces." It's a quick way to add pizzazz to otherwise basic pieces like a solid color turtleneck. This pearl collar necklace from local Indy retailer Jazzy Jewelry Indy is a current fave, and I've even found myself building outfits around it. Jazzy Jewelry Indy offers a host of statement making pieces - check them out online here, and find pieces like this one at Profyle Boutique!
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!

  1. Thank you so much, Jody, for featuring your gorgeous headwear with Hat Attack. Your participation is so important to me. I've been slow this week with my comments because my daughter gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, so I've been spending time with them during these magical moments. Hope to see you for April's Hat Attack. Your style and beauty are an ongoing inspiration to me.
