Fashionable at Work this Summer with Modest Clothing

I was brought up in a fairly conservative household.  I was brought up to wear modest clothing.  It was frowned upon wearing tight jeans, revealing shirts, or too much makeup. I think this solid foundation my parents set for me has helped me in working world.

At the beginning of my career, I struggled with what to wear to work. One day I was a college student wearing sweat pants and the next day I was working full time with people wearing business suits. My first job was casual but I always kept in mind what the books said, "dress for the job you want to have, not the one you do have." This is something that I have tried to keep in the back of my mind while shopping or dressing for work.  I think it's important to be fashionable but also to not be revealing.  After all, you want people to look at you and not focus on your clothing.

In the summer people naturally wear less clothing and show more skin.  At work, this is not acceptable but there are solutions to being modest yet fashionable in the summer.  Business suits can be plain boring but they don't have to be.  Dress them up with colorful sleeveless tops underneath, a lace camisole, flowery spring scarves, or colorful high heels.  If you choose to wear a skirt make sure it is below the knees.  If you wear a dress that crosses in front, make sure to pin it appropriately so it doesn't open for the whole world to view.  Also, make undergarments your friend by using spandex to make your pants and skirts fit better and show off a more refined figure.  Always focus on your hair and makeup and choose to show off you instead of your body. 

As for shoes, do not choose shoes you would wear to a nightclub or a wedding.  There are work shoes and there are "those kind of shoes."  Make sure your feet are well maintained.  I am sorry, but there is nothing worse than a half polished foot wearing really nice peep toe shoes. 

Some of my favorite celebrities that dress modestly yet fashionable are: Kate Middleton, Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Garner, Savannah Guthrie, Ashley Olsen, Diane Keaton, and Jennifer Aniston.  These woman are very focused on their fashion and style yet they know they don't have to show too much to gain attention. 

Kate Middleton makes modesty beautiful!

Jennifer Garner - a modest mother of three and career woman.
 I hope these tips help this summer for dressing modestly yet fashionable in the work place.   It will pay off to work hard and dress right.

A bread review? Why Yes!

     I am trying to work out and eat better.  I wanted to let you know about a great choice in bread at your local grocery store.  I recently tried Oroweat HealthFull bread.  It is low in calories, high in fiber, and my kids love it too. 

     With school lunches getting a bad rap lately, it is time to think about sending a homemade lunch every day instead of just 4 days a week.  Seriously, did you see the picture of pink slime for meat that is being served?  Yuk! 

Just another thing that won't make you moody!  Try it today.

AmorePacific Review

Last week I mentioned I loved Sephora and today I will tell you one more reason why I love Sephora! They have such a range of amazing products and brands that I never would discover at my local drugstore. Not to say that drugstores don't have great products, but to really discover new innovations and sometimes new favorites, you have to trek to Sephora or visit online.

The newest brand I tested is a Korean brand named AmorePacific.  They have been around since 1945 and unite traditional Asian beauty secrets with modern innovation. They use nutrient-rich, indigenous Asian ingredients like green tea, bamboo, and Korean red ginseng to penetrate, moisturize, and renew skin.

The first thing that made me realize they were different was the unique design of the containers and how they opened.  It was like a hat box and you unscrew the bottom to reveal what was inside.  It took a few attempts to open it but then I realized how modern and sleek the little containers were and how much time was put into the design.  I am very into packaging so I was really impressed. 

The second thing I noticed was the the scent of the cremes.  They had a subtle scent but very nice.  It was a pleasure to use these products. 

To test the three products, I used a three step process.  I washed and dried my face as usual and immediately put on the Time Response Skin Renewal Serum with my fingers.  It came in a small pump so it was easy to use and mess-free.  It had a nice smell and didn't burn my skin as some serums have in the past.  I then applied the Time Response Skin Renewal Creme.  I used it all over my face and neck.  It felt very smooth and nice to the skin.  It also had that nice scent that I mentioned before.  After that, I used a very small amount of the Time Response Eye Renewal Creme.  This eye cream was very sensitive and did not cause any burning on my eyes or any skin reaction (and my skin is sensitive).  The creme left my eyes feeling hydrated and that continued throughout the evening.  I felt like extended use of the Time Response Eye Renewal Creme would really make a difference on my fine lines and problems areas.

The next morning my skin felt and looked great.  It was supple but not greasy.  My eyes looked refreshed and moisturized.  I really liked using AmorePacific and actually ended up using all the serum but still have a little creme left.  I am going to save it for special occasions.  I know it sounds funny but when I find a product that feel luxurious, I like to savor it! 

I hope that when you go to Sephora you will at least stop by the AmorePacific and take a look.  You might just find a new favorite like me!

For more information on the products please visit:  AmorePacific can also be purchased at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Holt Renfrew, and Cosbar.
