Dressing up for work requires extra effort in the morning, but it also makes you feel good especially when dealing with clients or when meeting someone for the first time. Plus, it shows your boss that you take your job seriously and also, that making a good impression on others is important to you.

This neon number from Cynthia Vincent was scored from TJ Maxx for less than half it’s regular price. It looks and feels great – is not super tight – and is the perfect dress to transition from dinner with your family to champagne cocktails with your girlfriends in. A classic silhouette structured with an eye-popping print and a touch of texture, this dress is constructed with a material that’s light, easy to wear during the summer and one that looks great against a tan!

These sky-blue striped denim jeans from Splendid are in line with summer’s easygoing mood. I especially love that they are cropped and comfortable – made with a soft and stretchy fabric that’s forgiving and easy to wear when it’s hot and sticky outside.

For this look for “This Maxxinista Life,” I went with one of my favorite trends – colorblocking, and paired my yellow pants with a bright, solid-colored top to make a bold statement…

With summer here, you’re bound to hit up at least one or two BBQ’s. From hotdogs to watermelon to sangria, you’ve got to have the perfect look – and one that strikes a fine balance between being causal and comfortable, yet still stylish.

Kelly green is an unexpected color that’s works for both daytime and evening looks. If you’re looking to make an impression at a daytime event and channel a classic vibe, wear subtle accessories like nude sandals and gold jewelry. If you’re going to an evening event, turn to on-trend accessories like printed sandals, bright jewelry and a cute, statement clutch.

As Johnny Carson once put it, “a New York minute is that instant between a traffic light turning green and the guy behind you honking his horn.” Pretty sure that sums up this day of shooting – fast, frenzied and… well, fun.

Tangerine happens to be one of my favorite colors to wear because it’s vibrant, sassy, attention getting – and looks great when paired with a cobalt, ink blue, denim or even light blue colors.

Last month, I received an incredible opportunity to be the contributing editor for TJ Maxx’s “This Maxxinista Life” on Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They flew me along with my best friend, Jen, to NYC to go on a shopping spree and to style and shoot 14 different looks. I had an amazing hair and makeup stylist (Neil Gogoi), a full size RV (yes – an RV in NYC) to go from location to location in and an incredible photographer (Drew Reilly). It was truly an unforgettable experience.
