white denim is a perfect choice 12 months out of the year. but they are even more perfect come spring and summer. don’t forget to add a pair (or 2) to your wardrobe. add a denim jacket to help ease you into spring. denim and blazers always strike the perfect balance.

many women discount shorts because they think they can’t show their legs. but no one has perfect legs – not even models. this is when we work with what we have and use instant tanner if they are blinding white. just keep an open mind and look for the perfect length for you. a good rule of thumb is that the shorts should stop where your legs look the slimmest. stand in the mirror and play with the length until you find the right length for you. there’s nothing like shorts to help beat that summer heat.
some summer days are just too hot for blue jeans. this is when i slip into a denim skirt. don’t forget to add white denim to your repertoire as it’s perfect all summer long.

to be certain sunnies have that cool factor going for them. but did you know you will protect the whites of your eyes from UV light if you slip a pair on before you head outside?
fancy or plain tees are a spring/summer basic once warmer weather prevails. but graphic tees are fun to wear so grab one or two. they’re perfect tucked under a blazer, cardigan, or shirt. they’re available everywhere and at bargain prices.

flip flops and sandals are easy to slip on during the summer months. but don’t forget slingbacks or ballet flats look great with skirts or shorts.
