The Fourth of July is right around the corner. And it’s going to be a hot one this year! To keep cool and still represent our traditional flag colors I’ll be wearing these light weight pajama style pants ($24.99). Their little printed flowers remind me of bursting fireworks which is perfect for Independence Day. The pants are cropped and hit my legs at a weird spot. Continue reading

There’s nothing mellow about this bright yellow shift dress ($19.99). It’s faux doily texture adds interesting detail to its classic feminine shape. For a more defined waistline (and a nudge to Jackie O), I tied on a black cotton belt. A
I’ve been trying to build my graphic T collection for some time now. I love to contrast a casual T-shirt with heels or a blazer. This Notorious Big graphic T ($7.99) is my newest addition.

For accessories, I’m wearing one of my favorite statement necklaces and a gold bracelet. A nude purse and shoes allow the other colors to shine while matching the cream hemline of the skirt. How do you style your pleated skirts?

Pencil skirts can be such fun and feminine pieces. I scored this plaid pencil skirt for $7.99. Its classic pattern reminds me of my elementary school uniform. So to break up the school girl look, I added a little bad girl flare with this denim military vest. I chose a simple white tank top to wear under it to keep the outfit from looking too formal. (And because it was a 95° California day.) For arm candy I’m wearing June Cleaver pearls with a gaudy rhinestone bracelet and a black- Continue reading
