Almost spring jacket

Cape

IMG_8132.JPGHappy Monday! This winter I have been living in my cape. I wear it on dresses and I wear it on pants. The best part is how chic capes look. To update your cape try putting a broach on and switching the regular buttons to metallic ones. I went for the gold and love how it instantly upgraded my cape. That’s my little chic trick for you.

Beauty tips for your first day at a new job

Work Wear x SP1/2

When it comes to the first day at a new job, it’s important to put your best foot (and face!) forward. One of the easiest ways to settle those first-day jitters and make a stellar first impression is to find the perfect work-appropriate look.

  • Wear your hair in a bun or a braid – Keeping your hair off your face sends the message that you are ready to get down to business.
  • Opt for comfortable shoes – the ones you can easily move around in.
  • Go easy on the perfume – keep it simple and light.
  • Get a fresh manicure – It’ll make you look as powerful and put together as you feel.
  • Accessorize tastefully – Don’t overdo it

Bonus tip – Stock up on mints – Chewing gum isn’t exactly the picture of professionalism.

Remember less is more. Keep it simple, radiant and refreshing and you will be feeling better than ever.
