We’ve come a long way from the days of the basic canvas backpacks. Fashion designers have finally jumped on board to have our back! Stores that used to only carry handbags, clutches and wallets in the accessories departments are stocking up on backpacks in all shapes, sizes and styles.
There’s really no excuse not to choose a bag that represents your personal style. Some people might think it’s silly to invest in anything special because it’s just a bag to haul your books from class to class. If that were true, then what’s the point in wearing a purse you love? Might as well carry around a paper bag, right? Wrong! A backpack is an accessory you’re going to wear day in and day out. Why not love it?
I love all these options. The quilted leather (faux leather is just as fancy in my opinion) and black floral are very on trend for fall and winter, plus they’ll go with almost any outfit. Click on any of the images below for more information.

I receive so many emails from readers who are uncomfortable with their body and let it prevent them from living their lives to the fullest. Trust me when I say I have my own hang ups. Everyone does!! So I understand the desire to hide out when an opportunity arises that will expose an insecurity leaving you feeling vulnerable. Tamar’s email inspired me and I hope my reply will inspire some of you. If you have additional advice on this topic, please chime in on the comments below!
I’m from the Netherlands so I’m sorry if my grammar isn’t right. Since it’s summer and it’s getting warm outside, a lot of my friends throw their birthday parties at the swimming pool. I love to swim, that’s not the problem, but I hate my body. I don’t feel confident in my bikini at all.
I actually don’t want to go because of that, but I also don’t want to miss my friends birthday. I don’t know what to do. Can you help me?
How could anyone feel blue when they’ve got a rainbow right at their fingertips? Am I right or am I right? I’m a firm believer in dressing for the mood you want to be in. If I’m feeling low energy and want to perk myself up, I’ll put on a yellow dress and let it brighten my mood. I figure the same rule must apply to our nails!
This colorful DIY by nail artist and industry expert Tracylee Percival makes me want to bust out some jazz hands. If you’re not feeling the rainbow and want to go with your own hues, Tracylee suggests choosing colors that are complimentary in color and tone. Continue Reading
Whether I’m packing for a trip or planning out a jam-packed day, choosing versatile clothes and accessories allows me to enjoy the journey rather than worry about having extra things on hand to change into. I like to keep things as low maintenance as possible. To me that means packing less by wearing styles that can fit into any scenario — while being fashion forward and comfortable, of course.
Besides my sunscreen, which I never leave the house without no matter the time of year, here is a list of my double duty must haves that will take you from the beach, to brunch, out to dinner, and back again! Continue Reading
The chicest choice for a summer ensemble is most definitely the jumpsuit. A jumpsuit is the older, cool cousin to another favorite of mine, the romper (which is more casual). Jumpsuits are good for both work and play because they can easily stay with you from day to night. Not to mention getting ready with a one-
piece is a breeze given all you have left to do is accessorize.
When the sun stays out longer, I tend to stay out later. Don’t you? There are few greater feelings than getting off work knowing there are still hours of sunshine left in the day. I think dresses that take you from office-to-dinner are the ultimate summer staple.
If your school or office is on the conservative side, add a light blazer or cardigan to any of these looks and then tuck it away once you’re off the clock. If your day duties require you to carry a large purse, bring a foldable clutch for just the essentials and swap it out for your evening plans.
Right now, all things off shoulder are taking over every best-dressed lady’s wardrobe. Off shoulder tops, rompers and dresses are the perfect transitional pieces for going from spring to summer and summer to fall. How? Glad you asked!
An off-shoulder top can be worn with a pair of jeans on a cool day or shorts when it’s warm. A shoulder-baring dress or romper can go great with both tall boots and summer sandals. I like to have a few basic shoulder-baring tops to mix and match with printed bottoms and accessories. A white eyelet top is a definite staple item in my closet. I’ve listed a few of my favorite picks below along with other great styles.
Brooks and I were over-the-moon excited to book a trip to Africa. Both of us have always dreamed about going on an African safari. Brooks was especially wanting to see Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of the world.
Before we left, we snapped pics of our complete outfits not only for fun but also to stay organized. When you have photos to reference what shoes go with what pants and what top, you’ll spend less time figuring out your outfit and more time enjoying your vacation! Continue Reading
