First Impressions Matter

Hello Honeybees,

3 seconds, yep 3 seconds is all you get to make a first impression. In 3 seconds the other person forms an opinion about you based on your appearance, body language, your demeanor, your mannerisms, and how you are dressed. Admit it, when you meet a person what’s the first thing that you notice? It’s probably what they are wearing. We are all guilty. We can’t always control what the others think but we can put our best foot forward.

Depending on the setting this first impression can be the difference between getting the job or not getting the job. The first impression could mean making that connection that could help elevate you to the next level.

I know we can’t ALWAYS be on 10 ALL the time but when we know that we are walking into certain situations we know that we should bring our A game.

This week my blogger friends and I are talking statement jackets as we transition from summer to fall. Bianca, ,  Komal, ,Desiree,  Melissa,  Michelle, 

Jacket: gifted to me over 7 years ago, Top: Ann Taylor, Pants: Thrifted, Shoes: TJ Maxx, Bee Pin: Gifted


I didn’t get a picture of it but the top under this jacket is sleeveless. So on the way to my meeting I won’t faint in this Memphis heat, but once I get there I can put on my jacket for a more polished look.

The yellow of the jacket screams Summer but the lightweight quilted texture feels “Fallish”. I added a bee pin in an unexpected place for a little whimsy & to stay on brand.

What do you think of my statement jacket? Too much or just enough? Will I make a positive first impression?

Let me know what you think!
