In the meantime…

Polished Professional Image is re-vamping the blog (I admit, I broke the old one!), but in the meantime, a few tips about maintaining your professional image during the summer months, uh, remaining month.

  • Take a cue from your male co-workers when dressing during the remaining summer days. If they are not wearing tank tops and flip-flops to work, neither should you.
  • Okay, about those flip-flops, even if the guys are wearing them (take a picture and send it to me!), avoid wearing them yourselves. They never spell professional image – nope, not even the embellished ones.
  • Resist the urge to wear that cute, halter top or dress to work. It seems, no matter what top you wear with it, it still looks like a halter top.

That’s it for now. Back to the revamp.

Feel free to post your professional image questions. Oh, but there may be a bit of a delay in seeing your comments. I moderate to avoid putting you through the torment of going through a ton of irrelevant posts by the spammers.

About Bonnie Mahaffey

Bonnie believes that the business casual environment has made it very challenging for women to compete in the corporate arena. "Perception is everything and women, historically, are not perceived as seriously business-minded when they are dressed casually. The mission of Polished Professional Image is to help women choose the most effective business image based on their professional goals and work environments."
