I cannot tell you how thankful I am this summer for my cross body bag. It is a definite summer must have. Not only is it convenient and chic but it fits everything you need for a summers day or night. Square is the ultimate trend in these stylish handbags that range in a variety of colors and sizes.
I’ve seen some trends reforming lately and I’m at no surprise to see that clear accessories are making a comeback. The first time I came in contact with this trend is when I was little and my mom bought me the cutest pair of jelly sandals. Remember those? Mine were clear with colorful sparkles and I wore those shoes every day feeling stylish. This season, clear accessories have been sneaking up on runways all over. From Valentino to Prada all designers are recreating this craze. My grown up approach to jellies is now the oxford with clear sides. What are your thoughts on this trend? XO
Highlighter hues are making a comeback this season with brighter and bolder colors. Not only seen in apparel everywhere but celebrities are also taking the trend head on thanks to Nicki Minaj and Katy Perrys bright coifs.

I call this look biker chic. For an edgy rocker-chick outfit try mixing chiffon and leather. Adding a pastel color skirt with a leather top adds softness and femininity. Pair this pretty but tough wardrobe with another trending item, the motorcycle jacket. Add some black booties and you'll be instantly turning heads. If you want to really glam it up add gloves and bold jewelry with studded accents. I found this pink chiffon and lace dress at the VF Outlet for only $18.00. Looks great worn out on the town or at the office. This is also a great transition from summer into fall.
I’ve found this once before and finally had to try it. The project is very simple, easy and inexpensive. All you need is a pair of heels or flats, acrylic paint, and painters tape. Transform worn shoes into something new.
