Update Your Professional Style

Every once in awhile life sends you a little wakeup call. I received one this past week in the form of a graduation announcement. A college graduation announcement. From my niece. What? My niece is graduating from college? I could have sworn she was still in braces and practicing for her driver's test and now she is graduating from a highly respected university and is about to embark on a career.

Where on earth has the time gone? It wasn't that long ago that I was tossing my mortarboard and trading in my jeans and sweatshirts for pumps and pencil skirts, and now here is a whole new generation of sweet young things entering the work force. And wanting to do so in a chic and stylish way. This is a good time to take stock of your professional wardrobe girls!

It's hard enough to be the new girl in the office, but if you take the time to make sure your work wardrobe is up to snuff it will take a bit of the pressure off, and give you that little extra boost of confidence to start your career off on the right foot…and in the right footwear!

So whether you are fresh out of college or halfway up the corporate ladder, it's a good time to spruce up your professional style. Here are a few tips to help get you started:

  • Don't be cheap with your feet. Buy top quality shoes and keep them in tip-top shape. Stay away from too-high, too strappy, or too casual. Two pair will get you started: one basic black and one nude. Trust me, these two pair will go with everything in your closet.
  • Choose your handbag wisely. Nothing too slouchy or casual — you aren't headed to the county fair. Same rule as the shoes — go with quality over quantity — it truly is an investment! Your shoes and handbag define your style.
  • Keep the hemlines near the knee. Too short and you look like a tramp; too long and you look like a frump.
  • Fit is key. Pants should be fitted, but free of visible panty lines. If they are low-rise, be sure to wear a longer blouse, cami or jacket. Nothing is more unprofessional than exposed midriff. Skirts, especially straight styles like pencil skirts, should be loose enough to sit down in comfortably. Jackets should be able to be buttoned. And blouses shouldn't never gap open (no one really wants to know what color bra you have on).
  • Underwear as outerwear is a no-no. Keep that cute camisole covered with a cropped jacket or lightweight sweater.
  • A polished image is in the details: manicured nails, run-free hose, scuff-free shoes.
  • Remember, less is more when it comes to jewelry, hair and makeup.

Looks to avoid in the workplace:

  • Too sexy: sheer tops, see-through lace, miniskirts, spaghetti straps, flimsy sundresses.
  • Too casual: jeans, shorts, T-shirts, hats, sneakers.
  • Too sloppy: wrinkled clothing, too many layers, baggy-fit clothing.
  • Too fancy: sequins, rhinestones, lamé. Seriously, that adorable eyelet mini might be perfect for a night out clubbing with the girls, but for the office? Not so much.

Best tip of the day:

  • Emulate the higher-ups. Look to the girl at the top of the corporate totem pole and take a page from her style sheet. Remember the old adage, "Dress like the fashionista whose job you want to have."

Second-best tip of the day:

  • When you leave work this afternoon, stop by the nearest bakery and pick up a nice, warm cinnamon roll. Then go home, kick off your shoes, curl up with a really great book, lick the gooey frosting from your fingers and forget all about looking like a total doofus in front of your boss today. Oh wait, that was me. Never mind.

Well my darlings, that should get you and your working wardrobe off to a good start! Have a fabulous day, smile pretty and try not to break too many hearts!

KMS California CURLUP perfecting lotion 

 
Curly haired girls love the heat but hate the humidity! Which is why I’m obsessed with KMS California’s new product for curly hair! CURLUP is designed to protect hair from humidity, keeping curls controlled in any weather, and moisturizes deep into hair to keep it perfectly conditioned. Now if that doesn’t sound like the perfect potion for curls I don’t know what is.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness month…so I wanted to show you once more of our amazing top sunscreens for ALL AREAS of the body that are NON STICKY and smell like THE BEACH YEAR ROUND!

 Liquid Palisade

What it is: 
A liquid, paint-on barrier that covers and protects fingernail cuticles from polish mishaps. (You peel off after you polish!)

What is it formulated to do: 
Liquid Palisade provides an easy-to-apply protective barrier that covers the cuticles during nail polish application. It keeps the cuticle free of nail polish color. It dries quickly before you polish, peels off easily after you polish, and helps create a perfect color line around cuticle after each use. 

What else you need to know: 

Liquid Palisade also creates the perfect French Manicure or custom nail art design. Apply Liquid Palisade to nail where you do NOT want polish. Apply polish as usual. Peel off Liquid Palisade revealing desired french-tip or nail art pattern.
