top handle happy

top handled handbags have taken over this spring & summer but don't be fooled into paying too much for this on-trend silhouette!  each of these bags cost right around $50 and lack no style.

full on flirty

a hard silhouette for some gals to figure out-- the full, mid calf skirt!  the key is for the skirt to hit right between the knee and calf muscle.  the first look is bold with mixed patterns and geo earrings {love the grey & orange combo} while the second look is more casual & effortless.  for the most flattering look-- tuck your skirt in to define your waist! 

inspired

inspired by prada's spring/summer collection, these looks are bold and clean.  i am loving the multicolor-strap heels in the first look!

skirt{astic}

flirty, summery & under 30 bucks, these mini skirts can transition from flip flops and a cotton tank to sky-high wedges and a silk top.  talk about getting bang for your buck!

classic beauty

what appears to be a classic undergarment is actually an extremely feminine bathing suit!  the simplicity & delicate lace details are amazing.

spotted

spotted on the streets from fashion weeks all over the globe, computer bags were making a statement all their own!  from oversized portfolios to smaller zip pouches, clutch bags can come from even the most unlikely of places.

the colorwheel

this summer use the colorwheel as inspiration to create bold color combinations!  pair colors from opposite ends of the spectrum {turq & yellow} or stick to different shades of the same color- either way, the bigger the difference the better.

billow bsuit

an unexpected silhouette that is incredibly chic & glam. all you need are oversized sunglasses, a large brimmed floppy hat & a beachside cocktail!

go graphic

graphic prints are always better than dull khakis!  play up texture with lace detailing & seed bead sandals or add color & a mix of patterns with a geo bangle- don't shy away from mixing colors and prints!

poolside perennials

delicate & feminine florals are always a favorite poolside choice! to change it up, look for new and/or different cuts {the cut-out one piece} in these classic prints. 

make a statement

coming in around $10 per pair, your ears {and wallet} have never been so happy! bold & colorful earrings are the perfect way to turn a casual summer T and shorts into a unique look that stands above the rest.
