The most anticipated season of the year is finally here, summer! All year we wait to break out our favorite...
The other day I was browsing the Topshop website and came across a dainty little number with so much potential. The Orange Cutaway Halter Dress (yeah, real original name, Topshop), is, like you guessed, an orange, halter-style dress made of flowy chiffon. Besides the knockout color, this dress also features a stunning cutout in the chest area, giving it a sexy '70s feel and a very thin break in the fabric on the back, which will be evident when you're moving around.
Now that Spring is officially here, I can't wait to start bringing all my favorite warm-season clothes back into rotation -- and of course, pick up some new items as well! One must-have I'm looking forward to purchasing this season is a LWD -- A Little White Dress!
As you start to think about what to bring (and equally important, what not to bring) you might be finding some gaps in your Spring Break-appropriate wardrobe. Got your swimsuit (or maybe 15)? How about something to go over it?
Although the end of summer means the end of many good things in life (i.e. slip n' slides, lemonade stands, dunk tanks, debating the possibility of frying an egg on your driveway...), the end of summer also means the beginning of something brand new. Something fresh and exciting. Something every style-hungry college girl craves out there...
It's still summer and for the past 6 weeks you've been working on that tan of yours. And, glass half full, you've still got a good 6 or 7 weeks left to bronze yourself. You know what is best paired with a tan? White, coral, turquoise and brown - only the best summer pairings since you put jicama and guacamole together.
Okay, so it’s hot. Like really, really sweltering hot. The temptation to stay inside and watch the first season of True Blood on DVD is certainly great, but you’ve got to escape the house at some point. While there’s not much we can do to persuade mother nature to tone it down a few (hundred) degrees, there are a few tactics you can implement to keep cool on your outdoor adventures…and a few you’d do better to stay away from.
Fourth of July is here! Commence drinking, hot dogs, drinking, and singing "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" and maybe burning your hand on sparklers (which I don't care how old I get, they will always be so freakin' cool). I've already given you recipes for the bbq you'll be hitting, and now we have one more thing to tackle: the Fourth of July 'fit.
Whether you choose to wear a bikini or a one-piece, you're going to need a cover-up for going to the beach, or even just covering up a bit to avoid extreme sun exposure. Lucky for you there are some really cute options this year that will easily transition from the beach to the boardwalk (assuming you dry yourself up enough to avoid those pesky wet marks around your boobs...).
Flowers are pretty in the garden so why wouldn't they be extremely smashing printed all over your dresses, shorts, skirts and closet? At least then they wouldn't shrivel up and die after 3 days when you forget to water them. Yes, that is my ultimate philosophy with floral and I'm stickin' to it.
Last week I had a series of outfit mistakes, each one leaving me standing on a subway platform, sweating like a pig, wishing I could strip naked and put on something that wasn’t bringing on hot flashes like a menopausal woman.
The beach has been calling my name lately. Seriously, I think I heard it. But I'm having a slight issue... all of my beach cover-ups are worn and tired. And one cuts off the circulation to my boobs. Seriously.
So I just got back from a glorious seven days lounging on the beach with no worries other then which wine cooler to pop open next and which bathing suit to wear. And of course the second I arrived back at my doorstep I had a major reality check greeting me with open arms. I instantly went from beach bunny to recent-college-grad-desperate to-make-a-dime.
