Summer totes are a must have especially if you plan to go a weekend getaway. Whether you're planning to go to the beach or a trip out of town, you wouldn't want to be caught carrying something not so pretty. So I suggest you grab either of this six summer totes here. These are my favorites especially the Rebecca Minkoff Palm Tree Cherish Tote and Michael Kors Jet Set Striped Travel Tote. What is your favorite?
This week I will wrap up my favorite drugstore beauty finds,
focusing on products that are perfect for summertime. Many of the products I
use in the winter don’t work as well when the temperature rises. As much as I
love warm weather, I often suffer from shiny skin, frizzy hair and body acne.
Body breakouts are a bummer. Skimpy tops demand flawless
skin and a breakout on my back or chest instantly makes me want to cover up.
Neutrogena Body Clean Body Wash keeps my skin clear year round and has a refreshing grapefruit scent.
As much as I would love to let my hair dry naturally in the
summer, I often find myself even more of a slave to my curling iron,
straightener and blow dryer. TRESemme Platinum Strength Strengthening HeatProtect Spray is a must for my hair before using heat.
Just a few spritzes on damp hair before blow-drying protects my locks from
split ends and breakage. The product has a very light scent and doesn’t weigh
my hair down or leave it greasy.
Zara has came out with their May 2013 lookbook combining sleek and modern elements in their collection. We see a good mixture of cobalt blues, florals and whites in cuts and shapes unlike what we've seen before. They incorporated it in crops, sports dresses and tailored blazers, just to name a few, in different fabrics and silhouettes to give it a more modern appeal.
Boy, oh Boy. Continuing on
the trends for this year, these jeans are actually inspired by the special men
in our lives, hence the name “the boyfriend jean”. Unlike the past few years
when the jeans were getting skinnier and skinnier, the new way to wear jeans
are a little bit baggy but still completely chic. When you first think of
“baggy” jeans, you probably won’t associate the style with being classy or
elegant. By pairing these pants with the perfect pieces, you will create a look
unique and unexpected. One of my favorite ways to work this style is by adding
a relaxed v neck such as this Cream V Neck Blouse, all white sneakers such as
these white Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakersand an adorable strawfedora.
The three main criteria to be considered
“boyfriend jeans” are to be at a length in between the calf and ankle, cuffed
at the bottom, loose fitting (but not too loose), and they usually consist of
rips and tears to give them a destroyed denim effect. These slouchy and slashed
jeans are a great way to add an element of comfort to your outfit but you can
still unleash your inner fashionista by adding a blazer and a beautiful pair of
ankle strap heels. You could also channel your inner cool girl attitude by
adding some wedge sneakers and a loose v neck to finish the look off. There are
so many different styling options with these jeans, whether you are going
shopping on Madison Avenue or running a few errands around town you will turn
heads with your girly take on this previously known menswear item.
Emma Watson is as gorgeous as always in her Chanel number at the Cannes Film Festival 2013. She wore a Chanel Couture dress with a sequined bodice and floor length white skirt with minimal jewelry. The gown is open at the back while the skirt graduated into a short train.
After reading quite a bit of young love and romantic novels, I thought I'd go for a more popular reads this summer. While I haven't dived into these genres before; thriller, historical etc, I decided to give it a try and see if I'd enjoy it. I'm pretty sure some of you have already read some of this novels. If you do, let me know which ones you enjoy!
