Must Haves: 20 “Comfort Sandals” That Don’t Look Like Comfort Sandals

After breaking my foot, I’ve had to rethink my summer shoe wardrobe. My closet consists of strappy heels I can’t walk in, T-strap flat sandals I wear every day, flip-flops, and gym sneakers. After breaking my foot, I need to avoid my heels, flip flops, and flimsy sandals for something with more support. At the moment, I am…

Must Haves: 10 Beach Totes & Towel Combos

Summer is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but I pack for the beach like I pack for a mini vacation. A beach tote is essential, and must be large enough to carry my towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, beverage, brush, and a change of clothes, but adorable enough to carry around town. 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…

Would You Wear These Pricey Designer Flip-Flops?

I don’t blame you if flip-flops are one of the very last things on your mind today. I know that I am personally far more concerned with hunting down functional yet stylish all-weather boots (digression: do these exist, and if so, please point me in the right direction) and a down jacket that won’t make…

Must Haves: 10 Anything-But-Basic Summer Tees

OKAY, CONFESSION TIME. (God, I feel like I’m always confessing! So much latent guilt!) I love a good breezy tank top as much as the next human being with temperature receptors, but honestly, I don’t necessarily feel like shaving my armpits every day in the summer. I also personally (PERSONALLY! YOU DO YOU!) don’t like…

Must Haves: 10 Pretty Pairs Of Spring-Ready Shorts

Shorts are a standard come the warm weather, but wearing denim cutoffs every day can get old fast. Upgrading to a more put-together lace or patterned pair brings your casual summer look to the next level — and even better, if your office is on the laid-back side, these may just fit the bill. These…

Style Stealer: Keira Knightley Does Florals With Her Fiancé

I often wonder aloud how the guy from Klaxons, a terrible band, managed to score babe Keira Knightley, but that is neither here nor there. Keira’s long-running tenure as, you know, Elizabeth Swan paved the way for her public entity, but in the last few years she’s really proved herself as one to be watched,…

Style Stealer: Jordana Brewster’s Pretty Pink And Orange Color Combo

I don’t know much about Jordana Brewster, other than the fact that she’s an actress and was in that terrible movie “D.E.B.S.” But that was a long time ago, and apparently Jordana has had a resurgence on television with “Dallas,” which I have never seen. I’m seriously flashing my incompetency right now, no? Anyway, I…

Can We Talk About The Horrors Of Thigh Chafing?

Whenever summer rolls around I look forward to hot days, gorgeous nights, skimpy sundresses, and sangria. But there’s one thing about this amazing season that fills me with dread, that makes me sigh dramatically as I unpack my summer wardrobe, that makes me cringe at the thought of an afternoon stroll through the park. Two…

Style Stealer: Eva Longoria’s Chic Shift Dress

Let’s ignore the fact that from the neck up Eva Longoria seems to be rapidly morphing into a Kardashian, and talk about her awesome outfit instead. I’m in love with everything from the crisp white shift dress to the trendy peep toe booties and–gulp–Birkin bag. Want to steal her style at a much, much, much

Awesomely Affordable: 13 Bandeau Bikinis That Don’t Cost A Fortune

You guys, I simply cannot stay silent for a moment longer. The cost of swimwear is too damn high! It’s. Too. Damn. High. I’m going to Mexico in a month so I’ve been on the hunt for a new bikini to bring with me and wear basically 24/7 while I’m there. But I am seriously appalled by how much…

Summer Trend: Stacked Friendship Bracelets

ummer camp dressing is the antithesis of style — Color War T-Shirts, unflattering denim overalls and hiking socks typically fill the cubbies of eager campers — but one trend we’re ready to revive is the friendship bracelet. No longer reserved for 14 years old BFFs, this tradition is an easy way to add a playful…

Take It To The Max

Let me tell you a secret: sometimes, when I am feeling supremely lazy, I will wear a maxi dress all day long and then sleep in it that night. I mean, a maxi dress is essentially just a nice-ish looking nightgown, so can you blame me? Well, one maxi dress I won’t be wearing to…
