Erica is a Healthcare Manager in the Tampa Bay, Florida area, where she manages and runs the day-to-day operations of a large Outpatient Imaging Center. She earned her MBA with a concentration in Healthcare Management and learned the business of managing a healthcare facility. Erica started her Instagram account earlier this year as a creative outlet after receiving many compliments on her workwear from colleagues, patients/customers and girlfriends. So, she uses Instagram in order to share her workwear fashion and connect with like-minded women. What we love about Erica is how colorful her wardrobe is, and she sets a great example of how to wear a colored suit to work with this look.
What are your favorite retailers for workwear? My favorite place to shop for workwear is New York and Company. NY&Co is about 80% of my workwear. I also shop for workwear on Amazon and other discount stores such as TJ Maxx & Burlington.
What is your business dress code? My work dress code is Business Casual. My personal dress code is Business Casual where COLOR is a MUST!
Describe your style in a few words. I would describe my workstyle as comfortable color-filled chic. My weekend style varies and is very dependent on my mood. My weekend style varies from Tomboy to Glam to Bohemian to Chic.
What do you do for fun? I’m a Florida girl born and raised so in my spare time I love to go to the beach. I’m lucky enough to live only 2 miles from the beach so I go as often as I can. Being near the water relaxes me and it is an instant form of stress relief after a long day or week at work. I also enjoy meeting my girlfriends for brunch, and spending time with family and my 12-year old American Bulldog “fur baby” Sasha. Also, I love being creative in any way in my spare time, painting, crafting, taking photos, and doing makeup.
What’s your favorite “go-to” look when you want to look and feel your best? This one is hard because my workwear style and weekend style can vary significantly. So I am going to separate the two. My “go-to” workwear outfit would be a sheath dress or a pair of high-waisted pants. Both these items fit my body in a way where I immediately feel confident and ready to conquer the day. My “go-to” weekend outfit would be a crop top and a pain for high waisted jeans or a jumpsuit.
