One of my favorite trends of late are super wide leg pants. You can call them palazzo pants or even skirt pants but whatever you call them, they are SO incredibly comfortable and elegant that you will never want to put on anything else! These wide leg pants glide with the flare of a mazi skirt but with the mobility an feel or pajamas. They can take you effortlessly from the office to the playground to date night with a few simple accessory changes. The versatility of these wide leg pants make them a true must have and the added bonus is that they will transition easily for fall! The key is to pair them with something more body conscious, tailored or even slightly cropped on top to balance the volume – and as simple as that – you have a perfect outfit! Check out some of my favorite wide leg pants that will have all your friends coveting the look!
Nothing screams summer like (safely) tanned legs, a great pedicure and some super sexy strappy sandals. I’m not talking about those flat gladiator styles – I’m talking about heels here.

No, not particularly comfortable for your park and beach outings but for a summer soiree, wedding, BBQ and even the office a gorgeous pair of strappy sandals never fails to stun. Whether sky high or just moderately high, metallic, neutral, or colorful – summer’s strappy sandals are a must have! Check out some of my favorites and get ready to show off your pedi with some of the seasons hottest strappy sandals!
Camisoles are not just for layering anymore – they are, in fact, the ideal summer top! Camisoles are essentially sleeveless, lightweight blouses – they can be more lingerie like but there are so many more variations to keep you cool and feminine in the warm weather. Of course, this post must come with the caveat that the slinkier sexier camisoles should be layered for the office – if it looks like underwear – that’s wear it belongs in a professional setting. That said, camisoles can look amazing paired with anything from distressed denim to maxi skirts to a sexy mini for evening. When the weather gets hot – who wants to wear sleeves – camis give you that refined feminine alternative to basic tanks. That said, sleeveless tanks/tops are great for our little ones during these hot hot months as well!! Check out some of my favorite camisoles for summer – and get ready to free your arms dear!
First some camisoles for us:

There has been nothing on my site that has been searched for more than the Fendi peekaboo monster bag – of course it was sold out in seconds at every retailer, so when I saw that it is once again available I had to do a post! The Fendi Peekaboo monster is ladylike from first look, but open it up and its got an extra surprise setting it apart from all the rest – those crazy monster eyes!! This bag is crazy expensive – $5300 for the Fendi peekaboo monster version and $3950 for the non monster style – but it is undoubtedly an “it” bag. Check out this crazy bag – your kids will even get a kick out of it – it defines classic with a twist and is certain to sell out!

I have talked about maxis and minis but there’s a new length in town – it’s midi skirts that are pretty, polished and poised to grab some attention.

There is no questions that textured accessories have a gorgeous expensive look. There is just something about those bags and shoes with an embossed leather or even the look of a skin (real or faux) that gives them that next level feeling. Textured accessories are richer, exotic and completely captivating (at least if you are an accessory addict such as myself). They give off that vibe that makes you want to reach out and touch them… Perhaps they take us back to our youthful love of pat the bunny and the various kids books where we learned to understand touch and feel. The incredible thing is that these textured accessories don’t have to be expensive – certainly when dealing with real skins (from fur to snake) prices sky rocket but there is so much technology that you can get that reach out and touch me look from embossed leather and even the faux leather fabrications that are now available. Bare in mind – fabrics such as python are actually illegal in certain places (such as California) so its incredible that designers such as Stella McCartney (who only uses vegan materials) has delivered that stunning texture in animal friendly fabrics… Check out some of my favorite textured accessories that take the bags and shoes we love to another level – and you won’t want to take your eye or hands off them!
Yes, it’s hot and the natural inclination is to go for a tee or tank but lets not forget the always fabulous summer sweatshirts. I know it sounds crazy but remember – these sweats are not the old frumpy oversized college tops of yore… Summer sweatshirts are lighter and believe it or not – sexy! Its that soft and comfy material you crave but its shrunken, off the shoulder, cropped, short sleeve and many takes on the old classic. Summer sweatshirts give you the relaxed look of the season but with a twist and with so many variations that there is a style you’ll love and not want to take off all season long! Check out some of my favorite summer sweatshirts and choose your new favorite look!
