With the exception of Arbor Day, there is no "wait, what is this holiday about" holiday more dangerous than Memorial Day. Sure Columbus Day has its controversial discussions about killing Native Americans and St. Patrick's day has its suspicious green beer, but neither come close to the madness that is this 3-day weekend.
We all remember that scene in the first 'Sex and the City' movie. You know, the one where Miranda's hair down there is doing a bit more than just peeking out of her suit. But if I'm being honest, when I first saw the movie I didn't even pay attention to that extra "collection" south of the border. For all I know, there could have been dread locks coming out of there because my eyes were glued to her amazing, fabulous, please-can-I-have-it-NOW Red swimsuit.
Summer sundresses are awesome for so many reasons: they're comfy, they're cute and they're totally versatile. You can pair 'em with all kinds of shoes (flats, sandals, heels, wedges, boots; you name it, it can work), and you can wear 'em over a bikini, for those last warm days on campus, or for a night out.
I get it. Trust me, I get it. It’s getting nice out and the last thing you want to do is spend an hour or two inside the gym. Who wants to sweat indoors when eating ice-cream by the lake is so much more appealing (and yummy?) But on the flip side, you'll be donning a bikini before you know it (like, ahem, next week) and you want to look h-o-t.
It’s okay girls, count to ten and breathe. I know we all have huge under eye circles, our legs haven’t been shaved in a good week and these study munchies are starting to catch up with our love handles. But on the other side of this pit of fire that is midterms is a glorious week-long party fest.
It's been a long, cold winter, but March and Spring Break are finally here! For those of you spending a week in a warm and sunny environment, here are some Spring-Break-I'm-going-to-paradise-and-I-need-to-look-cute-and-show-off-my-bangin-bod essentials for under $20.
You've seen the commercials (and most likely remember them because they used to discuss "the big O"), but have you actually perused Overstock.com? The site might be overwhelming to some, but that is because it is chock full of awesome deals on clothes, shoes and accessories (in addition to home goods, decor and linens). Overstock.com brings you items that are marked down by up to 80% (!!) and they ship fast and cheap.
I'll be honest: I always thought Alloy was for the 12-17 age group, but then I started flipping through their merchandise and realized that they have a ton of cute stuff for us more sophisticated ladies. I mean, how could you not love this dress!?
Chances are you'll be spending many days at the beach this summer. And chances are good that a day of sun time can often be topped off by a night of fun time out at the bars. Heading out for some drinkies with the girls doesn't mean you have to rush home to get ready.
Now that a lot of us hold weekly office jobs, it makes perfect sense that we want to soak up as much sun as possible on the weekends. However, too many girls make the mistake of not wearing sunscreen while sitting in the sun to compensate for their pale bodies…and end up looking like a lobster instead.
Swimsuit shopping has been dreaded by women for a very long time, but it doesn't have to be. Sure, seeing all that cellulite harshly highlighted by the flourecent lights of a dressing room is U-G-L-Y, but there are so many cute suits this season that you may not even notice those ripples.
There are SO many cute bathing suits, cover ups, sunglasses, totes, etc., out there that are muy cheapo but look muy expensivo. Plus, not only do you look like a beach babe, you look like an original that-girl-has-mad-fashion-sense one to boot.
