The Unseen Accessory

As women we are always on the hunt trying to find the right outfit, the hottest shoes and making sure our hair is on point. But what about finding the right scent? Shopping for a new perfume can be an overwhelming experience because there are so many to choose from! I've found the best way to choose the right scent is making sure it matches your personality. If you tend to be more on the quiet side, a soft scent like Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan or Daisy by Marc Jacobs would be a great compliment for you. The sex kitten of the group? Try Mademoiselle by Chanel or J'Adore by Dior. Determining your perfect scent can be difficult but you don't have to decide in one day. My tip...GET SAMPLES! If you like a scent ask for a sample and use it for a week to see if you like it. Enjoy!

Cute and Casual

I have put together some cute outfit ideas for those days where looking cute is the last thing on your mind. We've all had this experience when you see someone you didn't want to see and you look horrible! And you know what they're thinking, " Wow, she looked way better in high school!". My goal is to make sure that never happens to you again! These outfit ideas are going to only accentuate your positive attributes and help you look cute while casual.

Tip #1 - Instead of a boring t-shirt, try wearing a blouse. A blouse creates a more feminine appearance and always make you look more sleek and stylish. Pair them with your favorite jeans and some cute flats or sandals to complete the look.



Tip #2 - Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize! If you have to wear a t-shirt and jeans with flip flops, make sure your accessories pull it all together. Necklaces, rings, earrings and handbags can add personality to your outfit and color. Use them to take your outfit from a boring day to day look to something more polished.

Tip # 3 - Trade in your old flip flops for a cute sandal. I understand how comfy flip flops can be and there are times when they are very appropriate (only at the beach). There are so many different styles of flats and sandals that can add a pop of color to your outfit and make you look 10x more stylish.

Pantylines Be Gone!

I don't know about you guys but my one fashion pet peeve is visible panty-lines (VPS). I mean come on ladies when you've found that perfect outfit for a night out on the town, don't ruin it with those unflattering panty-lines! You've got to put just as much thought in making sure you look good coming, as you do going ;-)
Your undergarments are an extension of your outfit and if done the wrong way, can give you extra lumps and bumps that I'm pretty sure you don't want! One way to eliminate panty lines all together is wearing thongs. I understand everyone isn't comfortable with thongs but give them a try and you might find out they can be quite comfy! For you panty wearing females, I've included some great panty options that will make our butts look it's best!

Victoria Secret ( it's no secret they have the cutest panties, but now you can have beauty and function)

Bare Necessities ( this affordable website is a one stop shop for great undies)

5 Summer Essentials

Figuring out what to buy this season or how to pull together the warm-weather pieces you've already got , can make dressing this summer a fun and stylish event!

# 1 - The Shirtdress
Their formal- looking cut makes even brightly patterned versions seem super polished!

#2 - A Cardigan and Belt
Pair both pieces with your favorite summer dress to create a stylish yet sophisticated outfit

#3 - Baby-doll dress
Use bold accessories, like necklaces, to add some flare to this clean cut dress

#4 - Florals or Bold patterns
Pairing a floral or bold pattern shirt with a simple top and a cropped blazer can create a stylish look for daytime but take it off and you can go out and have drinks with the girls!

#5 - Wearing White
Don't be afraid of wearing white. To classy it up a bit, use more serious pieces like a brown belt if wearing a dress or classic pumps with pants. Doing this will make your outfit seem less beachy and more streamlined.
