Fashion Math: Pink + Orange

Pink alone is alright, but pink with orange? Now that makes me think of summer! I know what you're thinking. Uh, don't orange and pink clash? Yes! But in a good way! How else could a scoop of rainbow sherbet ice cream look so insanely delicious? (Especially right now -- I'm going to Baskin-Robbins at lunch.) I…

Must Haves: 7 Paper Bag Shorts

Let’s be honest, a lot of short styles are not particularly comfortable. They dig in at the waist and crotch, or fit great at the waist but squeeze into your thighs. And once you eat lunch? Forget about it. Paper bag shorts, with their cinched waist and roomier fit, are a cute alternative to regular…

Hi/Lo: White Eyelet Tank And Pencil Skirt Suit

This Alexander Wang eyelet suit costs hundreds more than my wedding dress! White eyelet never goes out of style, but there is no way in hell I would spend $1,000+ on a white suit. I'd have to wear a plastic poncho to protect the damn outfit from THE WORLD! I saw "Can't Buy Me Love"!

Home Inspiration: Wine Racks For $50 Or Less

The “proper way” to store wine -- butt up -- originated out of a need to keep natural corks moist. Natural corks can dry and shrink over time allowing air into the bottle, oxidizing and spoiling the wine. Many wineries use screw tops and synthetic corks to minimize the risk, and let’s be honest, wine…

Fashion Math: Silky Camis + Skorts (Yes, Skorts!)

That isn't a typo! I did not mean to type "skirts" or "shorts." The skirt/short hybrid of our middle school days is BACK, y'all! When I saw this photo of Reese Witherspoon rocking a skort with a silky cami, I was like, Wait, is this a thing or is just one lonely designer trying to bring
