Here I am in a dressing room at Barney's in Vegas on the way to a work dinner (always gotta find time to sneak in some shopping!). I liked these leather shorts for a night out on the town.
Rothy's: the new pointy toe flats you will start to see everywhere. Why? They are stylish, comfortable, and they help the Earth. How did founder Roth Martin come up with the idea?
Same name, same nationality. Both fashion icons. Completely different styles. Which one are you?
The other British Kate: Kate Moss.
Totally different style from Kate Middleton. Moving from polished & put together to bohemian and effortless. Kate Moss embodies the French je ne sais quoi I just rolled out of bed like this look. Messy sexy
Kate Middleton is out and about! She is popping up all over my instagram lately. Can't you see why?
She is the epitome of classy chic. Always elegant, understated, classic, not trendy. Poised and
You know that one dress that you end up wearing all the time? It always fits-even if you are 5 pounds up of 5 pounds down. You can wear with flats for a casual lunch or with wedges out to dinner. You throw it on with flip flops to go to the grocery store. Your romper will be like that.
A must for summer! It looks great with flats for a brunch, add big earrings and heels for a night out on the town. Perfect for travel. Will transition into fall with a denim jacket. Comfy like pj's, no need to figure out matching.
Summer weather calls for summer pj's! Push those red flannel pajamas to the back of the drawer and buy something fresh.
A typical summer Saturday outfit for me. Old soft comfy tank top. Stretchy jeans. Metallic birks.
The tank is no longer available.....I purchased this years ago
Are tassel earrings trendy? Yes. Should you spend millions on them? Probably not. Just get some at Target. Who cares if they're not in style next year!
Target offers another trend! Crystal necklaces. I bought a crystal necklace last summer in Napa last summer. Copy the trend from Target!
What also looks cute with jeans & a t-shirt? A statement necklace. Something chunky. Options below from Target.
Another necklace trend is delicate layered necklaces. Some of these are already layered for you; some you can add to your existing necklaces. Layer away!
I still get compliments on my Target tassel necklace from last year. People can't believe it's from Target. Although that one is sold out, here are some other Target tassel necklaces
Basic summer outfit for a hot Saturday? Either a flowy dress or a soft t-shirt and shorts. Here I am walking home from a pedicure.
What color looks good with a tan and good with white? Blush. Add a ruffle, a bow, or some petals, and you're even more romantic.
Here is a glimpse into my life....I had to take my car in this morning, so here is what I am wearing.
I see a few categories of sandals popping up this summer. As predicted from my trip to Italy last year, I knew flat slides would be in. Perfect to throw on with shorts. Gladiators are still around.
Happy First Day of Summer! Yeehaw. Get ready for afternoon bbq's, pools, watermelons, bathing suits, the beach, sandals, sundresses, sunglasses, hats, & sunscreen.
Need a new swimsuit for summer? Some ideas of bikinis for you below.
Headed on summer vacation? Lucky enough to live at the beach or have a friend with a pool? Or maybe you live in SF and can take a summer beach bag to a park for a picnic. Lots of great options
Headed on vaca soon? It's really fun to have a few new outfits for the trip. Some ideas for you below.
What will you wear on the 4th of July? Order now and have it in time!
It's that time of year again! Time for a new cover up. Look cute walking to the pool or to the beach or having lunch. It is fun to buy a new cover up!
As your dermatologist or mom will tell you....stay out of the sun! Lather on the sunscreen, stay under the umbrella, and if you are out and about, wear a hat.
One pieces are here to stay. No longer frumpy mom bathing suits, these can be sexy and stylish. Some examples below-get yourself a one piece this summer!
Let's take a vote. Can I wear jeans with holes in them to work? What if it's with a nice blouse that goes to the cleaners, heels, and I curl my hair? I know Mom will vote "no," I know Melina will vote "yes." What do you think?
Ok, so yes, my friend Sarah bought these in 2015. She told me to buy them, but I did not. She was ahead, and now I am behind.
Well.....this one is a bit controversial. Can we wear all white now?
My Southern conservative traditional mom approves....her rule is after Easter and before Labor Day. The more traditional South may say only between Memorial Day & Labor Day (but what about Easter?). I think the rules are more relaxed these days, and the weather is weird &, so if you want to wear all white, go for it!
Let's take a vote! Who makes the best sheets? Which ones are the most soft, luxurious, long lasting, not wrinkly. Lots of new start up bedding companies. Which ones have you tried? Which ones are not really worth it? Which ones are fabulous?
