Boss Babe: LBD
After having a short work-week last week, followed by a full work-week this week, I just seem to be hitting a wall. The #adulting struggle is real, y’all. I’m also kinda regretting the decision I made to completely re-organize my pantry last night instead of going to bed at a decent hour. Are you ever like that? Actively trying to find things to do, clean, or organize around the house, when you should be doing something else – such as go to bed at a decent hour. But you know that if you did end up going to bed you would just lay there all-night thinking of all the things you should… errr, could be doing? That’s me. I really try not to let that happen, because sleep is incredibly important, but sometimes my mind and my weird OCD nature just get the best of me. So, cheers to weird habits and let’s have a good, restful weekend!
On with the blog!!
Do you ever have that one outfit that is your boss babe outfit? You know the one I’m talking about. The one you wear to job interviews, or for that big quarterly meeting with your manager. You may even wear it as your go-to date night outfit or for a special night out with the girls. Well,that is what this outfit is for me. So, check out my boss babe outfit:
For me, this outfit reminds me of Hollywood-glam-meets-CEO-boss-babe-status, don’t you think? Rhetorical question, the answer is yes (lol).
I love wearing black, probably more than any other color, and yes I know… it’s technically the absence of color (if you're talking about light, or all the colors mixed if you're talking art), but I digress. For me, black is so simple, yet elegant and chic. Not to mention, the color basically goes with everything, and everything goes with it. As opposed to white, if you spill anything on your black clothes, it's basically invisible. Not that I ever spill anything… Life hack for all you notorious spillers, just wear black all the time.
This LBD has a gorgeous sweetheart neckline, and long slimming cut that visually elongates the body. For this look, I brought in accessories with golden metallic tones to brighten and dress up my outfit. The belt is a versatile piece that I commonly use with my more modern looks. The crossbody bag, appropriately named Halo, is a staple piece in and of itself. It’s the perfect grab-and-go bag for your daily errands, and at the end of the day, the Halo easily dresses up for your evening date nights and outings. It's quite arguably the most versatile purse (*quickly adds one in each color to shopping cart*).
When you picture a “boss babe” who comes to mind? A current CEO of a multimillion or multibillion dollar company (think Margo Georgiadis of Mattel, Marissa Mayer of Yahoo, Kendra Scott of… well, Kendra Scott)? What about a famous celebrity (Beyoncé, Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Fisher, Meghan Markle)? A famous woman in history (think of Sojourner Truth, Sarah Breedlove, or Jeannette Rankin)? Or someone closer to home, such as a mother, sister, grandmother, or friend? Find me on IG @HaleighBelle and comment or tag a boss babe in your life!
