It is always so odd that during the hottest days of the year, we wear the longest dresses. So how do we beat the heat and still rock these summer staples? Here are a few maxi dress styles that will keep you cool all day long.

Sheer Maxis

So chic these styles allow for a seamless transition from day to night without overheating in the day. If too sheer, layer with a slip dress or just buy one that comes with a slip.

Lace it up

With Eli Sabb and Burberry sending these styles down the runway, they are worth the investment. Plus take deep tones from summer to winter with a chunky sweater and sweater leggings! Double duty!

So time to go shopping (like we need an excuse 😄)

Happy Hump Day,

Okay, it is finally hot outside so how does a guy dress in hot weather without taking his shirt off or looking grimy in a sweaty tank top? We lined up three alternative out fits that will keep you cool and attractive.

The Khaki has it

Shorts or pants does not really matter, when it comes down to dressing cool they work well. Unlike jeans, they move and breath. Also, you can dress them up with a light button down or down with a striped tee.

For the Adventurous

These looks from Versace’s summer made we swoon. Try to recreate this look with baggy pants and a graphic tee. It is not tpo over the top but can say loads about your personality. Forever21 has a great selection of graphic tees while baggy pants can be found at H&M or Urban Oufitter.

Urban Chic

If the heat really does not bother you or like me, you are always cold, try urban wear staples. A sports jersey could be an alternative to the hoodie.

IN ANY CASE…DO NOT BE THIS GUY

Happy Man Monday,

Yvette 💋

Okay, the tassel has literally been integrated into every accessories from bags and jewelry and even (gasp) the coverup. All these tassels (and sometimes pom poms) are really daunting and if you are tired of these boho staples here are a few accessories that broke the mold.

BUCKET BAGS

Yep these durable and cute bags are alot more chic then the circulat raffia or cotton cord bags we are seeing everywhere.

CLEAR JEWELY

The clear trend is not just for bags! Clear acrylic jewelry also graced the runway! From earrings to necklaces, this trend as staying power!!

BROOCHES

Not in the mood for jewelry? Try a simple brooch to dress up any outfit or to hold that sarong (do people still call it that?) closed after a day at the beach.

Happy Hump Day

Okay, guys have some really interesting choices besides swim trunks these days and we uncovered (no pun intended) these three alternatives to swim trunks or perhaps a way to spice it all up.

Activewear as swimwear

Those shorts and pull up you run with in the am could be your next beach staple! If not interested in getting your sport shorts, pair with a knee length swim shorts for a great casual look!

The cover up

You can buy matching sets of shirts and trunks! Bahama Breeze has a great variety and yes we love a man that coordinates..

Bold Prints

Skip out on basic neutrals and try that ever popular jungle and floral prints.

Let’s go swimming!

Happy friyay!

Hello readers!

Finally the weather is thawing out and we can finally enjoy the sun; but with warm weather comes the humidity and mugginess of Summer..So why not carry everything in a light weight and stylish bag that goes with any of your Summer wardrobe? I first saw transparent handbags when I looked at Korean bloggers’ posts as well as in Japanese magazines such as Mini magazine’s May 2018 issue and couldn’t help but noticed they were more chic and just as structured as regular handbags! I loved how they wore baseball caps, sundresses and either sneakers or sandals for a perfect, fun and stylish warm weather look. It was a little tougher finding these kind of bags in the us online  for reasonable prices but I found several styles all under $40! I hope you find one from our picks and let us know in the comments!

Clear bags are featured in the May 2018 issue of Mini

Espadrilles, flip flops, sandals oh my! Let us take a step back from the traditional footwear of summer (no crocs please) and use our imaginations ( or the runway) to switch it up! Here are three shoe ideas from the runway to spice up your summer wardrobe.

Wear Heels

Heeled mules are the ultimate sexy summer look and if you stash them in your beach bag, you can pair them with your coverup for a chic night out!

GO BOLD

Go for shoes with cool accents like these sheer paneled pearl accented beauties. I dislike my toes out so this is a great alternative to sandals.

Wear boots

Chanel paraded a pair of ventilated white leather knee high boots down the runway for Spring and summer. It convinced us that boots can be worn all year around!! Look for peep toe, airy fabrics and the cute ventilated number like Chanel!!

So ditch those flip flops and show us how you rock these shoe trends! #tfgss to all your shoegasm pics and you could be featured on our instagram and facebook pages!!

Happy friyay!

Okay, it is finally hot outside and we have waited all year for this heat. However, the long winter has made us over buy sweaters and we feel have to default our summer outfits. Tees, Tanks, Shorts and the dreaded flip flop. Never fear, we are here to give 3 tips to look chic in out weather!

A coverup is not just for the beach

Tip #1 means using that coverup to chic up that tank and short combination. Use a long duster ovee jeans and a t-shirt for a elongated long that adds height.

Wear lace

This tip looks best with skirts but you can add lace to any tank top to add chic to your outfit. You can even pair it with shorts and leather sandals!

Ditch the jeans

Okay, this could be the most drastic tip ever cuz well what else do we have in our closets? Soft fabric pants breath easier and keep you cooler plus with prints, colors and so many patterns. Scared? Try a lighter denim colored pants first!

Happy Hump Day..
