Today was my first day volunteering for Dress for Success, a company that helps dress women “by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life”. I have been feeling the need to volunteer more lately, and this seemed like a perfect fit for me. I spent my afternoon helping a woman find the perfect skirt suit, sifting through donated clothes, and tagging those that were deemed work appropriate. And, I also got to meet Laurel from Trophy Boutique who was volunteering as well.
Since I had never volunteered there, I wasn’t sure what to expect. When I don’t know what to expect, I like to wear something fairly comfortable and work-ish. I have worn this dress before, but changed up the belt and added a pile of pearls and chains. I normally don’t like matching my belt to my shoes, but with this busy print, I felt it would be too much to do contrasting colors. Do you match your belt to your shoes?
