Working Girl Must Have's

I work for a skin care and cosmetics company, and I am able to do my networking and business work from a number of different places. A coffee shop, my living room couch, the grocery store, etc. Anywhere I can meet amazing women! In order to do this I need certain things that will keep me put together and always looking fabulous :) A first impression is so important in any position, but especially a beauty company. When I'm presenting myself to women I've never met before, I need to look the part. From my shoes to the bag I'm carrying to the lipstick I just applied in the car, I need to look and feel confident so I can make others around me feel confident and comfortable too!

Here are my must have's for any working girl. They are simple, inexpensive tools that will make your life easier and keep you put together and looking fabulous all day :)

1. Calendar
Every working girl needs a cute calendar to stay organized and on time! I bought this planner at Target at the beginning of the year, and I can't live without it!

2. The Perfect Bag
I have a few different bags I switch between, but they all have something in common. They are all simple and classic. You want something big enough that you can fit everything in it, but at the same time not look like you're headed to the airport. Classic black, tan, brown, or white will go with any outfit and won't look out of place at your appointments. Try this great one I found on Target.com!

3. Black Pumps
They go with everything and will never go out of style. Need I say more?

4. Lipgloss 
My advice for lip gloss/lipstick is to find something neutral or with just a little bit of color. For days you're wanting to make more of an impression you can always apply something more dramatic, but for normal days just keep it simple and classy. This Mary Kay Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss in Cafe Au Lait is perfect for everyone. Adds just a little bit of color and shine to complete any look!

5. Professional Business Outfit
Every girl should have a professional business outfit in her wardrobe that she can always rely on. For me it's my favorite black dress. It's classy, I can add accessories, it goes with my black pumps, and it's appropriate for almost any meeting I'm attending. I bought it at Target awhile back on their clearance rack for only $12. It doesn't get much better than that!
