I just got back from my annual beach getaway with my mom, sister and daughter. I love going to the beach--the surf, the sand, the sun and the great food and shopping! A key to a fun and relaxing beach getaway is packing appropriately for the event. Who wants to stress about what to wear when you are supposed to be relaxing?
After all my years as a beach fan, these are my must-pack items for a great beach getaway wardrobe:
Whether you want to ward off a chilly seaside breeze, shield yourself from the sun, take your bikini from shore to café, or cover up your curves between dips in the pool, a great swimsuit cover-up is a must for any stylish woman. Now is the time to purchase swim cover-ups on sale as, though the swim season has just started, retailers are trying to clear out their summer inventory to make room for fall fashions.
Here are a few styles I have seen lately that are fashionable yet budget-friendly:
With the start of each new year, there is a whole new list of hot fashion trends. Weeding through the crazy, the unwearable, and the flash-in-the-pan fads, here are some trends that I believe will be big in 2012 and are also quite wearable.
A heat wave has spread across much of the United States; while writing this I am hiding out in my house blasting the A/C and keeping the shades drawn. Us fashionistas, however, need to leave our homes for work, errands and of course having fun.
How do you stay cool in such weather while still looking stylish?
Unless you live under a rock, you know that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge just finished up a tour of North America. Every blog, newspaper, and morning talk show has broken down not only the royal couple's itinerary and activities, but Kate's sartorial choices.
We all don't have a royal jet or royal funds (or an on-call hair stylist), but we can learn from Kate Middleton and her travel wardrobe. Throughout the entire trip, she always looked effortlessly chic, comfortable, and completely appropriate for every situation.
Retailers use flash sales to spur sales of particular items. They mark down a particular product for a specific amount of time. The sales are only open to people who have joined the site, and the products typically sell out before the discount period has ended. Flash sales started at high-end fashion stores that wanted to clear out inventory quickly.
The trend has become more widespread in the past few months with more flash sale sites opening that sell more than just high-end fashion.
