It’s time to face the facts, summer is slowly winding down. In the New York area, schools are back up and running the week after Labor Day, so we’re talking just two more weeks. While back to school is mainly focused on kids, we’re here to tell you that it's also the perfect time to think about yourself and your professional goals.
There’s something about the idea of ‘back to school’ that permeates our culture. It's become a season in and of itself, and you take notice whether you have kids or not. Most of us (hopefully) enjoyed some downtime this summer and were able to dial back the hectic schedules that typically run us ragged from September until June. Hopefully you were able to enjoy a vacation or two, or at least a long weekend at the shore. Once Labor Day rolls around, the ‘summer attitudes’ shift and we a become a bit more serious and structured as we sadly wave goodbye to summer Fridays... but with this shift comes a renewed sense of purpose, energy and the idea of a fresh start.
This is a perfect time to reevaluate your work wardrobe. Does how you present yourself at the office reflect who you are as a professional? Does it reflect not only where you are now in your career but where you aspire to be? Do your clothes help boost your confidence? Do you have at least one go-to outfit that you can count on for those big meetings?
Think about your closet and your morning routine. Is getting yourself out the door in the morning easy and stress-free? Do the clothes in your closet bring you joy? Is your closet easy to navigate and filled with pieces you know fit and flatter you?
If you answered no to any of these questions, you could benefit from working with one of our professional stylists. Choose to invest in yourself this back-to-school season, you’ll be glad you did!
