5 Reasons Your Visual Branding isn’t working for you!!
Your Image: Your image is super important when someone sees you in person or even in a photo your image should speak for your brand in a way that says I'm an expert in my field and I can get the job done.
Logo: Logos can quickly speak volumes about your business, your mission and what services you offer. A business without a logo has no chance of making an impact on its target audience. The logo is the most essential and valuable visual element of your brand, so keep this in mind when putting together your branding budget and hiring professionals.
Brand Colors: Your color scheme should be visible and easily recognizable throughout your brand. That goes for your website, logo, social media platforms, and any graphics you post to promote new products and services. Also colors have a way of communicating, so make sure your brand language is being heard through your color choices. Black is a power color but it's not something that would speak for a daycare or toy store, get my drift?
Fonts: Again we are visible people who have been communicating through images for centuries (think back to the caveman) so allow your fonts to speak your brand language as well.
Your Personality: Yes your personality is one of the reasons your visual branding isn't working for you! Do you know why? Because "You" are your brand and if you haven't taken the time to build your brand around who you are and what your purpose is then you'll never truly be successful! Your brand language draws your clients in by telling people who you are and what you're about. So that language must start with you!! If not, you'll be like someone visiting a foreign country speaking a language or a dialect no one understands.
How would you feel if I told you I could show you how to choose the right "look" for your business. One that included your image and your visual branding? You would have a complete branded style of fonts, colors, graphic styles, and clothing ideas that were all in your branded style. Created to attract your ideal client by speaking for you and what your brand stands for.
My "Visual Branding Guide" walks you through the process of choosing a themed "Look" for your business.

There has to be passion behind the purpose!!
If you're doing something and you don't love it and want to do it all the time then you're chasing the wrong dream. Purpose is something that makes you feel alive. It makes you feel proud because you know you're contributing something great to the earth!!
Trends aren’t something I teach my clients to follow. However, I do believe it’s important to know what’s in and out of style, and just as important to keep in line with the seasons as they change. You never know when a new trend might fit into your branded style. Here are 5 new trends for 2017 Spring/Summer:
Style Tip: To make this trend a bit more professional dress it up with a blazer, jeans, and a pair of pumps.
2. Patent Handbags – A trend after my own heart. When I was younger I hated patent shoes but as a lady I LOVE the chic and sophisticated feel of a patent handbag. This is perfect for a woman with a bold boss like personality!
Style Tip: Pairs perfectly with a dress or pair of slacks. This is definitely not the kind of bag you want to wear with your sweats but you can wear it with jeans if you’re dressing them up with a heel.
3. Cork-heeled Sandals – there have a very 60’s, Bohemian, Hipster, kind of feel. They scream summertime fun and they’re known to be pretty comfortable.
Style Tip:The cork-heeled sandal has a dressier feel to it. So wear them with a sundress or use them to dress up a pair of jeans or shorts.
4. Bardot Dresses – this is really just a fancy way of saying off the shoulder dress. They are named after Brigitte Bardot a French actress from the 50’s who made off the shoulder dresses and tops a popular thing.
Style Tip: This style can be dressed up or dressed down. It’s a perfect way to be sexy without showing too much skin. So pair a Bardot top with a pair of fitted pants or a maxi skirt. You can also pair a Bardot dress with sneakers, flats, or a pair of wedged sandals.
5. Suede Mules – This is another 60’s trend that has returned. However this one works for more than just the Bohemian style.
Style Tips: You can wear the suede mule from spring through the start of fall. It can be paired with pieces for a more casual look or with a dress or slacks for something more 9-5

I've got a TREND ALERT on a timeless classic.
One of this seasons fashion trends is leopard print!! Which is so funny to me because if you ask any of my clients I've probably told them leopard print shoes are a must!! I think of them as a go to neutral. Leopard print is a timeless classic that will never go out of style.
So investing in your leopard print pieces is smart. A great way to style the leopard print is as an accessory. It can be a bit overwhelming to see this print as a coat or shirt. Using it in smaller portions like a shoe, belt, or handbag will allow it to be an addition to your look and not take over by being the focal point.
Think of it as "leopard is the new black" and substitute your blacks accessories for it.
I LOVE the return of fall. It brings back wonderful chic pieces like the "Black turtleneck". It compliments just about any shape or size, by making you look slim and trim in all the right places. You can dress it up with black leather pants and a glamorous blazer, or with a pair of jeans for that simple everyday look. You can also wear it with a printed skirt to bring calm to a patterned storm.
Take a look at some fabulous ways to wear our friend the "Black Turtleneck" and decide how you're going to bring it to life in your wardrobe. Remember when you look good you feel great. So bring a touch of glamour to your everyday life.
