Color Me Wonderful

What better way to show off your summer style than through your nail polish?
I love the endless assortment of nail polish hues available and you'll n
ever catch me
without a pop of color on my fingers. Nail polish is a fun way to show off your mood
and not to mention compliments any outfit. Trending for this season are bright pinks
and oranges. Check out Essie's Braziliant Collection to keep those hands happy this

Let Me See Your: Geometric Prints

Summer is in full swing and there has never been a better time to experiment with
some patterns and fabric that you maybe have not tried in the past. Right now,
I find
myself falling for geometric prints! The shorts showcased in the photos from
my daily
outfit are one of my favorite buys for this summer. They're fun, different,
and playful.
Pairing patterns with your outfit always makes it a little more interesting.

She's My Cover Girl

Sunday night my sister and I were lucky enough to get tickets for the reunion concert of
New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys,
forming mega boy band NKOTBSB. For any
girl growing up in the 80's and 90's these boys were the best thing since sliced bre
ad and
the concert was one non-stop dance party. This was the perfect time for a cool concert
look, my version of mixing prints, and
my very first daily outfit post!

New Arrivals: Resort Collections 2012

Designers have introduced their 2012 Resort Collections and I find it amazing how
you can fall more and more in love with clothes every
season they hit the runway.
Currently trending for resort wear this
season is: brights, mixed prints, and of course,
Here are a few of my favorites from each trend.

Brights: Diane Von Furstenberg Resort Collection 2012

Nautical: Yves Saint Laurent Resort Collection 2012

Mixed Prints: Rebecca Taylor Resort Collection 2012

You can match
these looks for a straight off the runway look or wear one piece at
a time, but you never want to over do it or try to hard. Play with different looks to
see which is right for you. So which of these trends are you most likely to be caught

Allow Me to Re-Introduce Myself

So here's the scoop..

I'm Mara. I'm 20 years old and a junior in college, majoring in Fashion Studies. Ever
since I was a little girl there was something about clothing and the art of dressing
that caught my attention. I love the fact that fashion is all about self expression.
Fashion can tell someone how you are feeling without even saying one word to them.
Fashion has no rules and is ever evolving. I
t is something that has always been present,
and will continue on to the futur
e. And that's why I truly love it.

I currently work in retail, at a golf pro shop, I know, not coolest work place for a
glamazon like myself. But I've been working there for a
bout 5 years, and I feel that I
am pretty lucky to have the retail experience that I've been provided with over the
years. Anything from styling manequins, creating displays, sales and events, and even
assisting in the buying has been in my job description. I must say, golf is not where my
heart is, and I plan on moving on from conversations of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickleson,
to the more imp
ortant men, like Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs.
