I feel very grateful to be a TV Journalist and absolutely love what I do. I’ve wanted to be a journalist since I was a little girl. Thanks to help from my Mom, a strong journalism school (Hook ’em, Longhorns!) and the work ethic from my immigrant family, I’m proud to be where I am in my career. No doubt, it’s thanks to ambition, too. I’m working with Express in this post, to share how I express my ambition through my clothes. As a TV Journalist, my appearance is important, but it’s not the most important. However, I know when I put on a power dress or power suit and it makes a huge difference. I feel more confident like I can interview anyone in the world or help our viewers understand the severity of breaking news.

Express has a great selection of affordable pieces that’ll transform how you feel. Use code 3384 when shopping in store for $25 off purchases of $100 or more. Terms and conditions apply. Whether you’re donning this white ruffle sleeve dress I’m wearing here, a sharp blazer or fun shirtdress, you can feel like the world is yours to conquer. Personally, I love this white ruffle sleeve dress and it’s a piece I’ll wear for years to come. The ruffle detailing on the sleeves are darling, but it’s the ruffle hem that catches my eye. This really transforms a plain work dress into something with more character. I’m wearing size 00 and it fits like a glove. It’s definitely true to size. The skirt on this ruffle sleeve dress is the perfect length for elongating the body. Plus, no hem job is needed since this dress falls just two inches above the knee.

To help spruce up this dress, I’m throwing this floral kimono over it. However, if you work in a more conservative work environment, I recommend this blazer. It’s truly a beauty and will compliment this dress well. Also, speaking of blazers, I have my eye on this bright coral one, which also comes in five other colors! Since flowers are blooming in Coastal Virginia, it’s time for open-toed shoes. Express has a $70 version of my designer heels to help you recreate the look on a budget.
