Thank you to all of my friends for your support over the first year! I can’t wait to see what’s to come in 2013…

All You Need is Love.

Top: Theory ; Shorts: Free People

Love Necklace: Sugar Bean Jewelry ; Shoes: Diane von Furstenberg (Suggested)

[Tip 1.]  When I am stumped by the weather (it’s too hot to wear pants yet too chilly to wear a tank top) this is my go to outfit.

[Tip 2.] Use all over pastels (white, lavendar, rose gold, beige)

[Tip 3.] Invest in a love necklace. Because afterall… all you need is love (I just couldn’t resist!)

[Tip 4.] Invest in at least one henley this season.

Dress: American Apparel  ; Jacket: Zara (ThisThis, or That)

Some may lay claim to black on black being boring and basic. I, in fact, see it as an extremely creative outlet.

Tip 1: Picking a single color palette allows you to experiment with textures.

Tip 2: Black is one of those colors that you can buy very frugally without it looking cheap (tan- not so much.)

Tip 3: You can choose any pop of color that tickles your fancy.

Tip 4: Black = classy, so it is okay to show a little more skin

Tip 5: DO NOT mix your shades of black if one or more is faded

Tip 4: Invest in a structured, Alexander McQueen-ish, dress. (Suggested)

Tip 5: Don’t make fish faces in public.
