Boredom Breeds Creativity
For my 22nd birthday my friends and I got a HUGE bottle of Jack Honey, one of my favorite drinks, to celebrate. Once the bottle was finished (a month later) I bedazzled it for decoration. This blingy bottle can stand alone or can be used to store things like loose change or to hold flowers. Get creative!

Beauty Bulletin: L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow
I love dramatic eye makeup, so naturally I fell in love when I tried L’Oreal’s Infallible 25 Hour Eye Shadow. This product is rich with pigment so you don’t need to use a lot at once and one container will last a long time. In this photo I’m wearing the color, “Amber Rush,” which is a glittery amber that goes great with strawberry blonde hair. I finished the look with a liquid eyeliner cat eye, bold lashes and a natural lip so the focus is on my eyes. This is a great product for summer nights when you want makeup that will shimmer in the dark.

Meetings n’ Stuff in NYC
Planning an outfit for a summer interview may seem challenging, but with a nice sleeveless blouse and a conservative-length pencil skirt you can still look professional in hot weather. Since I’ve been interviewing for positions in fashion PR, I decided to add flare to my otherwise conservative look with heeled French Connection sandals and my mint green purse from JustFab.

Beyoncé X Rita Ora’s Unreleased Adidas Collection

Beyoncé recently posted these pics wearing pieces from Rita Ora’s unreleased collection for Adidas. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the line looks like!

Hot Child In The City

Summer in the city can make looking cool difficult when the weather is unbearably hot! This is an outfit that is perfect for July in Philadelphia- loose, comfortable and cute. 

I am wearing a floral romper from Urban Outfitters (now on sale for only $20!) and a Levi’s denim vest, a staple in my summer wardrobe. My favorite part of this romper is its slightly open back. For a daytime look I chose to wear a vest over top, since this romper’s skinny straps are a little too “sexy-night-out” when combined with my heeled shoes.

Gladiator sandals have been very popular this summer and my pair from ALDO make the perfect summer shoe for the city. While they are stylish (and necessary for a short girl like me to stand out!) they are also comfortable with thick heels and multiple straps for support.  

I styled my printed romper with neutral items to match while still giving my look some variety with denim, browns and blacks. Add a simple chain purse from H&M and some round black sunglasses from Urban Outfitters and this outfit is city-ready! 

Get The Look: Selena Gomez July 4th Outfit

Selena Gomez wore a Topshop ensemble during her Fourth of July celebrations, which you can find in stores and online now. She paired these floral high-waisted shorts with this matching blouse that was tailored into crop top. To give this girly outfit an edge, Selena wore this fringed leather jacket from the Kate Moss for Topshop collection. Selena accessorized this look with nude ankle strap sandals, like these sandals from Steve Madden, and a pair of very affordable round sunglasses from Urban Outfitters. 

Noteworthy Look: Kylie Jenner
One of my fashion favs, Kylie Jenner, stepped out in Malibu last week wearing an amazing pair of over-the-knee Alice + Olivia boots. I love the pairing of a simple outfit with a killer pair of heels- very daring and bold, baby Jenner!

Noteworthy Look: Nina Dobrev
Nina Dobrev attended the Chanel couture show this week wearing the ever-popular suit style trend. Her outfit mixed the sophistication of a navy blue blazer with the sex appeal of a mini dress. Dobrev showed off her long legs and accented the look with a sleek top knot.

Get The Look: Megan Fox in Cosmopolitan (August 2014)

Looking for the perfect summer party outfit? Draw inspiration from Megan Fox’s look in the August issue of Cosmopolitan. The sun-kissed actress is styled to perfection in a Sass & Bide strapless plaid romper and trendy orange Tamara Mellon gladiator sandals. You can copy her look with these two outfits, styled by yours truly:

Left: Palm print Topshop romper, sexy black Nasty Gal gladiator sandals and BaubleBar silver collar necklace

Right: Yellow Topshop romper, brown Tildon gladiator sandals and BaubleBar gold collar necklace.   

I recommend the left outfit for nighttime and the right outfit for daytime. Either way, this hot look is perfect for August festivities! 

Beyoncé: On The Run Tour Style

By now, I’m sure you’ve all seen the pics from Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “On The Run Tour” and have obviously marveled at Queen Bey’s ***flawless stage fashion. I sifted through her numerous tour looks and came up with my 9 favorite ensembles (so far). In photo order, from top left to bottom right:

  1. My #1 favorite OTR tour look of Beyoncé’s is a black mesh bodysuit and matching accessories by Atelier Versace. Beyoncé wears this look with some awesome chunky black heeled booties.
  2. A close second, I love the colorful Versace bodysuit and embellished beanie look.
  3. Coming in third is Beyoncé’s custom Diesel denim jumpsuit with its metal embellishments for the win.
  4. In fourth is a black leather bondage bodysuit and matching cropped hooded bomber jacket by Alexander Wang.
  5. Similar to Beyoncé’s outfit in the “Partition” music video, my fifth favorite look is a lace bodysuit with flowing flared sleeves and over-the-knee leather boots.
  6. Paired with those same boots, coming in sixth is a menswear inspired black leather Givenchy onesie with sports jersey style writing on the back. 
  7. Adding another bodysuit to her repertoire, my seventh pick is Beyoncé’s floral and glitter two-tone ensemble.
  8. A necessary super sexy look for “Partition,” my eighth favorite OTR outfit is Beyoncé’s black assless bodysuit.
  9. Last, but not least, is a more “ready to wear” outfit of denim shorts with an amazing studded grey leather jacket with “TEXAS” written on the back.
Trending: Suit Style
Over the past few months I’ve noticed suit-style ensembles trending in women’s fashion. The above celebs wore this trend in various ways, all sporting a plunging neckline to insert sexiness into their menswear-inspired looks. Black and white are classic colors for suit style, maintaining the elegance of a blazer with a solid simple color. Take cues from these celebs and wear this trend as a dress, a jumpsuit or simply wear a suit sans shirt!

Noteworthy Look: Beyoncé

Speaking of the recent halterneck trend, Beyoncé glowed in a white halterneck jumpsuit earlier this month. She wore this winning look to the Chime For Change One Year Anniversary, paired with chunky black platforms, fresh ombre locks and natural makeup. The definition of ***flawless. 

Trending: Halternecks

This summer halternecks have taken over runways, stores and streets as part of the recent 90s style revival. Celebrities have displayed the many ways, both modern and classic, to sport halter tops and dresses. My favorite style of halterneck prevalent in stores now is the skinny, stringy halter (seen above on Kylie Jenner and Kiera Knightley). Halters can be super sexy when they have an open back, a low cut chest or a cropped fit. Here are some of my picks for halterneck items, in stores and online now:
