Summer is officially upon us and this sweltering heat requires us to swap our sneakers for something more light and breathable. It is time to slip into some sandals and show off the pedicure you’ve been concealing in your lace-up shoes. Picking the right sandals can turn out to be a little bit more difficult than expected if you take into consideration the height, price and style, but have no worries because I have picked out my personal favorites for the summer. I know that you will find at least one pair that might make their way to your closet.

The major ’90s throwback piece has been making a comeback and I couldn’t be happier. The weightless dress is a great go-to clothing item for anything from a casual day out in the city to a date night. The silhouette created by a slip dress will truly make a statement if you style it right.SLIPDRESS

I must admit that I have lately been embracing a more Normcore style. Choosing casual and plain looking jeans, hoodies and tops over flamboyant pieces. Now some shriek when they hear the word “Normcore” fearing that it would become an unfortunate fad, which it did. However, when you are a young individual on a budget and constantly on the go there is really no time to deliberate on ritzy getups. HOODIES

Best Fragrances For The Holiday Season

Still having trouble deciding what to get your mom? A co-worker? Or that special someone? Well look no further. While some think that giving a fragrance gift set is too cliché or unoriginal, it is most certainly not! It will most likely be one of the most useful gifts because:

  1. They will want to smell good so they will use the perfume you gifted them with. (Given that it is not Secretions Magnifiques.)
  2. You will be saving them how much ever you spent.

So here is a list I have compiled of the best fragrances that you can splurge on this season that will make an excellent gift. Keep in mind that there is absolutely no shame in picking one up for yourself too.

(P.S. Do not fret when you see the prices because they are for the largest sizes available at stores.)

An outfit inspired by a perfume. That is exactly what I did here with the My Burberry perfume by Burberry. The iconic fashion house is the epitome of British history and are best known for their trench coats and checkered patterns. The mesmerizing deep richness of the perfume has a strong, yet calming effect. Although it is a more mature scent, the floral tones keep it from being too overwhelming. The long lasting fragrance should surely be on the top of your list of winter fragrances.
