I wore this mix of jewel tones to the recent Unlikely Entrepreneurs event, where the talented and visionary Nancy Rosenbaum interviewed me about my circuitous and odd career path. We taped the event and I hope to have some video to post in a few weeks once I’m back from my San Francisco trip and a little less overwhelmed. It was fascinating to have someone walk me through my various jobs chronologically, talk about my choices, and see exactly how unplanned most of my working life has been. Seems like every time I cook up a concrete plan, the Universe throws me a major curveball and I have to scrap it. Works for me. I feel like one of my major life lessons has been “Learn to roll with it,” and I am.

Anyone else feel like career planning never works but hard work and trust pull you through? Or do you rely on a far-reaching vision for your career goals and stick to it?

This cardigan is an oldie but a goody. More of a duster than a boyfriend, it’s super long which makes it feel a little dramatic and tougher to style than some of my shorter long cardigans. But it felt just right with these (birthday!) burgundy jeans and my long charm pendant. A fun mix of subdued shades for weekend rompings.

Anyone else do duster cardigans? Apparently they’re quite trendy right now, though I can’t say I’ve seen loads of them in action …

After much planning, organizing, and fundraising, we launched the Leaders of Today and Tomorrow program year a few weeks ago, and I wore this to welcome our mentors and fellows to our very first workshop. I love wearing red to our workshops because it’s such a bold and powerful color, and decided to do a bright red and burgundy mix to keep it classic. The workshop was a great success, and we’re already gearing up for our next one!

Do you have a power color? Do you reserve it for special occasions, or wear it frequently?
