Ah, June. Right when June hits, you automatically think summer. White, greys and neutrals are on my radar and my goto colors in the summer. The key to my style is all about ease, simplicity and multipurpose wearability. This outfit is perfect for the modern woman - classic, yet fashion forward. Whether out on a lunch date or meeting the parents for the first time, this outfit makes for the perfect day time attire.

slip on dress


I love layering, that's why spring and fall are the perfect months for me. Once the temperature rises or decreases, it takes me a while to adjust my wardrobe mentality. I love those easy, go to outfits that make you look good no matter what. Everything from having a fat day to meeting up with friends over the weekend. My favorite go to is a well draped, simple dress. Whether, t-shirt, tanks or strappy, they make for the perfect outfit that you can slip into and throw on a pair of sandals, sneakers, boots or heels. Not to mention, if it's a bit of a cooler day, pair it with any sweater, blazer or coat. It's just a matter of finding the perfect one.

Sometimes we have our off days. Whether you are feeling under the weather, lazy or just want to be casual, sportswear is in our favor. Have a grey day by opting for sweats - thank goodness casual and easy fashion is trending. Go grey with a crew neck or tapered sweat pants so you don't look like a complete scrub. Even if you aren't having an off day, sometimes its fun to mix and match. Pair a casual pullover with a skirt or pair your pants with a silk blouse. Who said fashion wasn't comfortable?

handful



I'm not much of a foot lover, in fact, in the summer it's rare for me to wear sandals. Flip flops are the worst of its kind. I refuse to wear them unless I'm getting a pedicure. Foot snob? Maybe. However, with the hot weather on the rise, it's going to be a hot one! This season, there are actually a handful of sandals I want on my feet. Three quarters of them may be man repellers, but at the end of the day, it's all about personal preference, right?

dress this way s'il vous plait


Do you have a long, formal skirt sitting in your wardrobe that you bought for a specific occasion? Now that you are purging your wardrobe, you're wondering where am I ever going to wear that again? Well let's put it to good use. If you are having an evening out, but don't want to dress up too much, pull out that skirt and let's transform it. Instantly dress it down by wearing a cotton tank top or your go to tee. This creates a great foundation. Next up, start layering. Pair it with a statement necklace and edge with a biker jacket. Dependent on where you are going make sure you add on the right accessories for a head turning outfit.

zaid affas FW14


Always on the prowl for new designers, I stumbled upon Zaid Affas - a British designer based in LA. With a focus on modern luxury, he plays with architectural garments which focus on tailoring and minimalistic simplicity. His first collection for Fall/Winter 14/15 is strong and well edited. The silhouettes are dreamy, and he understands what the modern, fashion forward woman wants.

When getting ready, I often start by choosing my bottoms. The next thing I know, I'm standing around in my bottoms and bra wondering what I should wear on top. If you run into a similar problem, thank goodness our problem is solved. You don't need a shirt for those bottoms, just wear a bra top. On the cusp of being a little riské, it's all about creating the right pairing. If you are thinking of showing off your abs you have been working out all winter for this very moment, make sure you put a structured blazer over top to keep it classy. If you don't feel like baring it all, try only showing a sliver of skin by putting on a pair of high waisted bottoms (and I'm not saying micro shorts or skirts). Don't forget, it's all about confidence to make the bra top work.
