Bikini Season

It’s that time of year when us girls hit the beaches in our sexiest swimwear. The ultimate swimwear line, in my opinion, is Victoria’s Secret. The options are endless and affordable! I like to shop online for the largest selection but the VS store in West Edmonton Mall also carries swimwear. Some of this year’s hottest suits are…

The balconet top with slight push-up is a definite way to enhance your features. This particular bikini has an underwire which allows you to order in bra size to get the perfect fit! Any color in this suit would be flattering but animal print is always a fun, flirty option.

Mix and match styles are always in! Who said your bikini top had to match your bottoms to be cute?

Finally, the subtly sexy monokini is a must-have. It’s a great way to show off your curves and provide a little more coverage if you don’t feel comfortable sporting a two-piece.

Enjoy the sun and sand ladies!

I walked away with two important accessories for summer from Sunday’s Lilac Festival; a sunburn (but soon to be tan) and these lovely earrings.

We saw quite a few variations of the feathered earring on display, but these really caught my eye. You can pick these up and other feathered accessories through Karly Thompson of She’s So boutique by visiting her facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/ShesSo

Dear Talula, thank you for creating the perfect summer shorts! These high-waisted,
button-down shorts are form fitting and stylish! Complete with sailor-inspired anchors on each button to remind us of the freedom and adventure that summer holds.

Ladies, check out your local Aritzia store for a wide selection of these Talula shorts in various colors. I bought three pairs: classic black, cherry red and nautical blue-and-white striped.

Hot Lips

Lips are meant to be accentuated! Simply slap on some lip colour to highlight your best natural accessory – your lips! Various hues of lip color can be used to create the perfect, classic look and make you feel ultra-chic. There are quite a few brands to choose from to achieve this bold, mysterious look. Here are a few of my faves…

The “Just Bitten” line by Revlon works wonders in creating a lasting lip color. Lip stains create a matte finish but require fewer touch-ups resulting in a defined, dark look that is easy to maintain.

Want to create a luscious, glossy look? The “Lipglass” collection by MAC is the best way to do this! They have an abundance of bright, rich hues to choose from. My personal favourite is called “pink poodle”. Want to plump up your pucker while adding a tint of color? I suggest the “Plushglass” collection by MAC to get that bee-stung look sans botox.

Whether you decide to go with a deep blood red, a bright cherry hue or a passionate purple tinge, lip color should be treated as an accessory. A way to accentuate even the simplest of outfits. A bold lip color combined with subtle eyes creates a timeless look that personifies beauty.

So paint on a little rouge to draw some attention to those HOT LIPS of yours!

Hold Onto Your Hat, Doll

Ladies, start your engines. The Kentucky Derby is coming to town! Well, not actually. But the elegant, large-brimmed hats found at such elite occasions are! As the summer approaches and the sun shines brighter we need to adjust our accessories accordingly.

Bucket hats, or cloche hats, are another way to do this.These 1920s inspired bonnets are perfect way to add a touch of vintage to any summer outfit!

Hats can do more than just block the sun. They can add a little flair too!

Hats Off To You, Sir

Newsboy caps have to be THE MOST attractive and stylish hat a guy can wear! Throw on one of these neutral colored “grandpa hats” with a hoodie/suit jacket combo and you’re gold! Newsboy caps have a way of adding a little more style to the overplayed, predictable t-shirt and jeans look that most guys tend to sport.  Of course, they can always be dressed up with a nice leather jacket or scarf. (Bold, confident men need only apply).

Fedoras can also have this style-enhancing effect. Again giving the casual guy a little more class.

Perhaps what I enjoy most about these hats is not their tendency to give even the most fashionably clueless guys a chance in this trendy, hipster world but the way they remind me of simpler times. Times when chivalry prevailed. A time of scotch-drinking, pipe smoking, ruggedly handsome men.Those type of men… never  go out of style.
