A friend of mine was skyping me while choosing a dress for an event and she held up a gorgeous red midi length dress and proclaimed – “I like the color but I’m not sure about the length..” I recoiled in horror and screamed “put it on right now!!! It’s THE length to be in right now!” I understand why it’s an intimidating length – cut below the knee somewhere around mid calf – it’s certain to make your dad happy – but the truth is it’s incredible feminine, sexy and MODERN. The midi length for both skirts and dresses has been wildly popular for the past 2 years and with good reason – ladylike chic. If you’re concerned about it being too unsexy (because we all want a bit of sex appeal) opt for a more body conscious silhouette and high pair of heels but make no mistake this is THE must have length for all the fashion loving ladies. Check out my favorite midi length skirts and dresses to keep you looking chic, feminine and yes, even sexy.
Summertime is shorts season and it’s time to free your legs ladies. Whether you want something relaxed and casual or a dressier options there is no lack of great options.

Whether you’re poolside or at a summer bbq – paired with flip flops and your favorite tee or heels and a sexy blouse these shorts are must haves! Not a great idea for the office or a wedding, but pretty appropriate for plenty of your other summer activities! Check out my favorite shorts of the season and get going on that spray tan because you may be retiring your jeans for July and August!
Summer is all about being outside, dressing down and wearing some amazing boho prints. What I mean by this is everything from the more abstract tie dyed pieces to the more modern hippie aztec prints – but it’s all about hipster meets hippie and it feels exactly right for the hot weather. Great boho prints are everywhere, at every price point and for every lifestyle. You don’t have to be a 60′s loving, festival girl to rock this trend – it’s all in the way you style it. A great boho print piece like an aztec print top tucks beautifully into a pencil skirt for work and a fabulous tie dyed dress with some fabulous flat sandals works for just about everything. Remember the key is to never where a trend head to toe – it’s always about a balance. So check out my favorite boho prints for summer and feel free and pretty this season!

Can’t help it, I’m a mini skirts kind of gal. When I was working in magazines it was my trademark. I’m tall and my legs are quite thins so when you talk about accentuating your assets mini skirts were always my go t0. In winter with tights and in summer time with a tan. The key to pulling of mini skirts is – whether they’re flowy, voluminous or body conscious – it’s all about finding the balance with what you choose on top. Don’t show to much skin on top when you’re showing a lot of leg on the bottom – and if you’re opting for something tight on the bottom go with something more voluminous on top and if you’ve got a fuller skirt go for something more slimming and streamline on top. However your choose to wear them – with heels, wedges or flats, summer is here, so break out the mini skirts and show of those legs!
A great striped shirt always catches my attention in the most subtle yet confident way. Yes, I’ve talked about breton stripes, but this focus is on the classic menswear staple – the button front. The striped shirt may seem stollen from your man’s closet but they are all feminine. Casually half tucked into your favorite denim bottoms or even the more fitted variety paired with a simple pencil skirt – these tops are the perfect play on masculine/feminine. The perfect striped shirt feels lived in yet polished, preppy yet cool and it’s a classic that will stay in your wardrobe for years to come. These are a wardrobe staple for always – super easy to throw on to achieve instant effortless style. I think its time to find your perfect striped shirt, because your boyfriend/husband/man in your life wants his back!
Quite frankly, a beautiful blouse goes a long way in my book. It’s one of those pieces that services your best for all your needs – from work, to brunch and from a casual day look to a dressed up evening one it’s one of those pieces that goes the distance. Whether you prefer something more polished and conservative or something more relaxed and bohemian – the blouse has so many incarnations. Pair it with everything from jeans to pencil skirts, dress it up or dress it down – it holds it’s own in every situation. Check out some of my favorite pretty versions of the blouse and have one less fashion fret when asking yourself what to wear….
I love playing with proportions in my looks so skater dresses (also called fit and flare) are always an easy go to for me. Not only are the pretty and feminine but they’re the ever important figure flattering silhouette we all know and love. Great skater dresses nice you a nice body skimming look on top, nipped in waist and then a fuller skirt (which always makes me happy when I’m trying to hide my bbq weight – you know all those amazing hamburgers and hotdogs). Super easy to wear regardless of shape, age or even age these dresses are a must have since the beginning of time. Check out my favorite skater dresses for summer and find some perfect options for work and play for night and day.
