My office has a Toastmasters Club, which I recently joined. For my first speech, I needed to look put together, and a little toned down.
I went with this purple blouse with pleating detail and some slim fit pants. I felt good. I wish you could see the shoes better, they are light gold high heels with a linen wrapped heel. I pulled some old photos just so you could see them, because I thought they looked really nice…
And I kept the jewelry toned down with this beautiful pendant my Dad designed for my Grandmother and I inherited.
My mother and sister have copies as well, so I was glad to inherit this one, because I like the idea of us all having one to wear.
This bracelet was also my Grandmother’s, from her costume jewelry collection.
My speech went really well! I received very positive marks on my evaluation and I was so glad to have that first one behind me. Hopefully next time I won’t be as nervous, I was shaking like a leaf for the hour beforehand. And to make matters worse, my boss, who I joined to hang out with, had to go to a luncheon for executives off campus! But I am ready for that second speech now! The first one is always worst!
