Just Because It’s Hot Doesn’t Mean You Need To Be A Hot Mess

I sweat like a beast when it’s hot out and I’m running around. There. I said it. I’m so not that girl who somehow looks perfectly composed as I enter the cool air-conditioned office from the punishing 90-degree heat outside. Sorry. But my personal heat-induced nastiness has given me time and incentive to find way…

How To Keep Your Makeup Fresh In the Heat

It is so god-awful hot these days that the short trip from home to the office generally leaves us sweat-drenched (no, not “dewy”). We used to delude ourselves into thinking that we’d make it to the office with a full face of makeup intact. As it turns out, that assumption was full on crazy. So…

Don’t Look Like A Hot Mess This Summer

As the humidity and temperature spike, so do our chances of heat-induced fashion problems. Every time I step onto a bus or subway or slide into a steaming car, my body sticks to the plastic on the seat and my clothes cling to my legs, delivering me to my destination stinky, clammy and busted-looking.

Crave: Bath & Body Works Jelly Flip-Flops

While most are annoyed about the jelly shoe comeback, we have to admit we’re kind of thrilled. Jellies are pretty, comfy, the coolest texture, and are wearable in the sun, in the rain, on the beach, and pretty much everywhere else. Plus, the word “Jelly” is just so fun to say. These jelly (see,…

Summer Rain Gear That Won’t Make You Sweat

It has been raining on and off in New York for weeks and we are sick of it. It’s easy to prepare for cold weather rain: wellies, a water repellent jacket, massive black umbrella, and, for the really dedicated, a hat. But the task gets considerably more difficult when the pelting rain is combined with…

The Few Things You Actually Do Need For the Summer

You don’t need a $400 Gucci beach towel for the summer.

You don’t need a $315 peace sign bikini ’cause all the goodwill in the world ain’t gonna pay for that thing.

And you definitely don’t need another pair of khaki short-shorts or that same cotton dress in one more color.

Screw It, We’re Wearing Jelly Sandals

We’ve spent years eschewing jelly sandals, turning our backs on the sheer plastic beauties we grew up with. We’re too old for those, we thought, gazing wistfully, but moving on to more grown up footwear. Well, screw it, jellies are back with a vengeance, and I’m leaving leather and other perhaps more legitimate footwear material…

Stylehiving: Lauren Conrad’s Summer Chic

Summer time opens the door for a myriad of new date-night destinations, mainly, the daytime, outdoors date. This scenario can sometimes pose a bit of a dilemma, one that I actually grappled with last Sunday. On the one hand, you want to look cute and make a lasting impression. On the other, you don’t want…
