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.

Depending on where you live the winter weather will continue for a while longer, and unfortunately some of you may experience an over abundance of snow. If you want to enjoy the chilly temperature while keeping warm a faux fur coat can do the job. I have always been an advocate against the use of real animal fur, and will never agree with its use. Stella McCartney, who never fails to impress me, took the initiative a while back to introduce her ‘Fur-free-Fur’ creations, which offer an array faux fur coats. Hopefully this effort with help push other designers to join the faux fur bandwagon. WINTER BLIZZARD

Styling A Houndstooth Blazer

Polyvore gave its users the challenge to style a houndstooth blazer of our choice with our street style taste so I chose this gorgeous Carmakoma Blazer. I styled it with a thin strapped romper. (Lately I’ve found myself wearing rompers all the time, I love them!) After that I decided to go on fully black & white so I chose a Ted Baker handbag, a swank pair of Fendi sunglasses, and some white classy pearls to top the outfit.Houndstooth Blazer B&W
