 Summer is the time to go bright, play with prints and be casual and comfortable… especially when you’re dealing with soaring temps. A great go-to piece that’s classy enough for the office, but sassy enough for a night out are printed “pj” pants because they are super lightweight and airy, and magically create the illusion of supermodel legs thanks to an elastic high-waist. And if you already have long legs (lucky!), this style will only accentuate them even more.

Raise your style standards with a pair of high-waisted trousers this summer. I can’t get enough of this trend because it makes me appear taller – and if you’re petite like me, you come to appreciate anything that gives the illusion of a couple added inches. While you may think you can breathe a sigh of relief, think again – this style can be tricky.

It’s easy to look fabulous all the time when you have an unlimited budget at your disposal. Unfortunately for most of us, spending thousands on clothing isn’t always realistic. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t be stylish – I’ve met plenty of people who look fabulous, regardless of their limited bank accounts because they have an amazing sense of personal style. They know what clothes to buy, what looks best on them and how to maximize their existing wardrobe – without breaking the bank.

You can’t go wrong with a pencil skirt. They are ladylike, brilliantly positioned to accentuate the right areas and go with pretty much everything in your wardrobe. From the office to date night to zipping away with girlfriends for a shopping trip, this staple is a must-have – and this look, (one of my favorites) is not too overdone or fussy, which is why I love it.

With the sizzling heat of South Florida upon us, ‘tis the season to bare a bit of tummy and don a crop top. I know it can be a tad intimidating (trust me, I almost didn’t post this outfit), but it can also be very flattering if done right. The key is to wear the right proportions and highlight your best assets. Whether you’re petite or beautifully curvaceous, there’s a way it can be done. Here’s how:
