Can we have it all - a fulfilling career, a happy marriage, houseful of kids (or a single child) raised on home-made meals? Valerie Monroe (Beauty Director, O The Oprah Magazine) says we can! May be not all at once, but gradually, subsequently! Last night I had the pleasure of attending an style event where she spoke about ageless beauty and shared her experience of being a successful career woman and a mother. Valerie put her career on the back burner when she was raising her son. She continued her free lance writing, authored two amazing books and when time was right, joined O Magazine's editorial team. Given her professional success, she actually manged to have it all! Her comment about 'having it all subsequently' stuck with me and reinforced my belief - stick to what is working for you. What are your priorities? If career comes second to managing home and kids - embrace your new role of the full time caregiver. If career comes first, stick to managing quality time and semi-home made meals. But always respect other people's priorities! Mine may be different than yours, but we all strive for the same - having it all one day!
Coming to the outfit - The accordion pleated OASAP skirt paired with my old Ann Taylor blouse make an easy, effortless summer outfit. I added a touch of gold with this necklace from VJ-STYLE.COM The best thing about this outfit is that every piece is mix-and-match-able and can crate a totally new look every time - now that is one have-it-all outfit if I may say so!
