These fun shorts are cut from a washed-out fabric that have a bit of stretch so they are super comfy and easy to wear. They sit high on the waist and softly flare out for a loose fit through the legs. I wore them with a lightweight knit top and sleek blazer, but you can wear them with pretty much anything – like a linen blouse and espadrilles for a casual look.

I’m a firm believer that what you wear is a true reflection of who you are or how you’re feeling at that moment. Think about it, when you choose bright colors you’re most likely feeling happy and if you’re wearing black in the dead heat of the summer, you’re probably feeling conservative and/or somewhat out of your mind.

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven’t posted much on the blog lately. Last week was busy with traveling but so worth it. I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to style for such an amazing brand and to experience it with one of my best friends and my photographer. I’ll never forget it and can’t wait to share it with everyone on the blog! So stay tuned – come July 1, it goes live.

Get into a playful spirit and show off those sun-kissed legs this summer with a pair of sophisticated shorts. I love this style because you can dress them up for a night out or go casual. Either way, sophisticated shorts will definitely make you feel a bit more refined and put together.

If you’re a girl, there’s no doubt that dresses are a staple in your wardrobe. All you have to do is zip them up and go – dress them up or tone them down. So easy! But no matter where fashion takes you, there’s one style you can’t live without – a classic dress – because it’s enduring, instantly sophisticated and simple, and can add a hint of mystery and sexiness to your look. Plus it’s important to have just in case you ever get called upon to meet the president or for a royal portrait… you never know.

Since I’m digging bold prints this season, I couldn’t resist when I spotted these trendy pants – adorned with a modern graphic print, which surprisingly ended up being very flattering when I tried them on. Needless to say, they were purchased in .2 seconds.

 Summer is the time to go bright, play with prints and be casual and comfortable… especially when you’re dealing with soaring temps. A great go-to piece that’s classy enough for the office, but sassy enough for a night out are printed “pj” pants because they are super lightweight and airy, and magically create the illusion of supermodel legs thanks to an elastic high-waist. And if you already have long legs (lucky!), this style will only accentuate them even more.

Raise your style standards with a pair of high-waisted trousers this summer. I can’t get enough of this trend because it makes me appear taller – and if you’re petite like me, you come to appreciate anything that gives the illusion of a couple added inches. While you may think you can breathe a sigh of relief, think again – this style can be tricky.

It’s easy to look fabulous all the time when you have an unlimited budget at your disposal. Unfortunately for most of us, spending thousands on clothing isn’t always realistic. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t be stylish – I’ve met plenty of people who look fabulous, regardless of their limited bank accounts because they have an amazing sense of personal style. They know what clothes to buy, what looks best on them and how to maximize their existing wardrobe – without breaking the bank.
