It’s O’K to…
Of course we all want to be head-to-toe glammed up everyday of the week, but sometimes it’s just not that reasonable. I am the first to admit that there are mornings before school that I get extremely sluggish and throw on my college sweatshirt and leggings (tisc tisc!). Ya know the days you just don’t feel like getting ready, but then totally regret it when you go to school and feel like a bum! So IN order to stay fashionably lazy, my tip for you is that sometimes its O’K for your outfit take a backseat while your accessories do the talking. Think of your outfit as a base that you want to keep clean and simple; sort of like a blank canvas. By doing this, it allows you the ease of going crazy with accessories IN a short amount of time.!

Summer Fashion Accessories 2012
I admit I never thought I'd see neon make a comeback, but not only did it find its way back onto the racks, neon orange seems to be THE color of choice- I guess if we're going to make a statement, let's be loud and, well really loud! Setting aside the neon's, which hasn't made its way to handbags (yet?) the other really popular colors this summer are pastels- especially tangerine and mint green. What makes pastels so great is their soft, natural tones mix and match really well, so if you are on a budget this can really be helpful.
