it’s always a privilege partnering with Ann Taylor. this brand represents the modern woman offering timeless classics with a modern twist. Ann is never dull with a bright color palette always in stock as well as subtle neutrals. if you’re in the mood for a feminine flirty dress, jazzy wide-leg paisley pants, or a pair of Bermuda shorts Ann has your back. but if i’m ever in need of a new pair of shoes Ann Taylor carries everything from sneakers to sandals to a sexy stiletto. Ann Taylor also offers sizing for Petites, curvy and tall. how’s that for catering to the modern woman? but today it’s all about casual summer ease. i’ve got the the perfect casual summer outfit for you.
what’s better than slipping into a cute but comfy pair of pants? this pair of cargo pants has slimming vertical stripes, elastic waistband and a self-tie belt. but the neutral color scheme lends itself to mixing and matching with all sorts of color schemes. today, i chose a simple flutter sleeve shell that’s chic and cool. this is the perfect summer outfit that will take me anywhere i want to go all summer long. both the top and pants are a size Medium and fit TTS.
fresh flowers for summer
do you love adding fresh flowers to your room as much as i do? tulips are still abundant so I’ll squeeze in every minute of enjoyment. originally grown in the Ottoman Empire (modern-day Turkey) the tulip was introduced to Holland in the sixteenth century. this flower became so popular that Tulip Mania ensued. when the price of tulip bulbs soared it created an economic bubble that then crashed in February 1637. sound familiar? some claim that a single tulip bulb sold for ten times higher than the annual wage of skilled workers.
