Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Blake Lively is Red Hot

I can't get enough of Blake Lively. In my humble opinion, she is one of the consistently most well-dressed celebs. Her street style is always fresh and eye-catching, and her red carpet style never ceases to dazzle. I love how her style is the perfect marriage of California casual, edgy haute couture and pure elegance. Recently, she was spotted on the set of Gossip Girl rocking a perfect laidback summer fashionista ensemble.

10 Best Things About a Perfect Spring Day

I have come to the final decision that Thumper was right all along. As soon as spring arrived, he could only think about thumping that big foot of his so all of the animals would hear his mating call. I feel the same way as Thumper. Spring is here and so are my raging hormones. Boys and their forearms crawl out of North Faces and down comforter coats...and I can't get enough.

Friday Faves: Flip Flops – Fashion's Anti-Christ

Peppered throughout magazines and blog sites are optimistic articles about delicious summer activities and fashion trends to anticipate and enjoy.

The Weekly Ten: High School Fashion Mistakes

So I was flipping through some old Facebook albums the other day (you know the ones people label THROWBACKS! OLDSCHOOL! And OMG WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!! ) when in between fits of hysterical laughter, I started to catch sight of what I actually looked like. And all I can say is, seriously? I mean, seriously? I know I was young and naïve, but I don’t remember being that naïve.

8 Under $20: Turquoise – Spring’s IT Color

If Punxsutawney Phil was correct this year, we now only have 3 more weeks of winter, which means we can soon wash away those winter blues and bust out those spring styles. This year, Pantone's top color will be turquoise, which is not only a fun, bright color that can be mixed with everything from neutrals to browns to other brights, but it looks great on nearly everyone.

Though you anticipate your vacay being the highlight of the semester, it can be grueling to go all day, every day, and, being far from home, there's a lot that can go wrong.

8 Under $20: Newport News

For a long time, I thought Newport News was a total "mom store" with terribly outdated and, well, momish stuff. Then, a few months ago I noticed some of their stuff in mags like Lucky, InStyle and Glamour and realized that they actually had some super cuteness going on.

Your Flip Flops Will Kill You

They come in all different colors, styles, and sizes. They’re a part of our daily uniform during the summertime (Editor's Note: And if you're me, they stay in rotation until the snow begins to fall); we wear them to the beach, to work, or when we’re just hangin' out in the house. Some people may hate on flip flops, but they are truly god's gift to mankind (after Channing Tatum and Coldstone Creamery, of course).
