Hey There CHICsters, 

With today being the first day of Summer, I
thought it would be only right to list a few 
of the season's must-haves.

With the heat and humidity that comes with Summer weather, there are some wardrobe necessities that everyone needs to look hot ...without feeling hot :-) 

1. A maxi dress -perfect for both laid back days when you just want to lounge around in flip flops, and can also be worn with heels or wedge sandals for a night out. 

2. Denim cut offs- great for the beach, or with a cute top, sandals or sneakers

3. A Fedora- this classic straw hat is essential to keep the sun out of your face on those scorching days as well as hide your bad hair days, which I have often in the summer ...#NaturalHair struggles lol

4. Nail Polish- count on ESSIE to come out with bright, fresh colors every summer to put some pep into your basic mani/pedi routine. If your career doesn't allow for a bright colored mani, try doing it on your toes. The moment you step out of those work pumps and see some neon, or hot pink toes looking back at you I promise it'll put a smile on your face. 

5. White handbag- Self explanatory!! Lol ...It's the freshest color bag for summer whether it's a cross body, clutch or tote.

6. Sunglasses- Duh!!! A MUST HAVE for the weather. Get a pair with UV protection to bar the suns harmful rays & while you're doing that try a pair with a colored lens...very on trend this season. 

7. Swimwear- last but certainly not least it's finally time to show off that beach body you've been working on all summer. But if you've been kind of a slacker like me *hides face*, there are tons on great one piece options out there that doesn't look like they belong on your 80yr old Grandma. Try one!

Hola CHICsters,

Sorry for the delayed posting but my life has been super busy. It started off with a spur of the moment trip back to my hometown Brooklyn,NY for a surprise birthday party for my mom....thennnnn it was my birthday, WooHoo, and yesterday was my daughter's Bday so I literally had nooooo rest the last couple weeks or time to blog like I'd really want to. BUTTTTT....all of that's done, so now it's back to business! 

Yesterday I had tons of running around to do for my daughter's birthday,plus it was a little on the warm side so I opted to be as comfortable as possible.

I paired this Royal Blue tank from Old Navy, with a pair of tribal pants, and my
knock around Steve Madden bow flip flops that everybody bought when they first came out. 

A lightweight colorful pant is on trend for this summer & can either be worn with a solid colored top, or another mixed print IF you know how to mix your prints properly.
If not then ummmm...stick to solids LOL.

....an easy summer look for you to pull off 

And most importantly, a very happy 7 year old :-) 

How do you style your tribal pants?
