I had such a great time visiting the new L’Occitane en Provence boutique at CityPlace last week with some of West Palm’s finest beauty and fashion bloggers. Dionne, the store manager, greeted and gave me a fantastic tour, of which she explained each product line and the history of the brand as well as give me a soothing hand massage, fragrance ritual and luxe mini-facial. I learned that my skin was very dry, likely due to the harsh cleanser I was using on my face, and was given a new foam cleanser and the Crème Divine to remedy it with.

We have all been there – it’s 5 p.m. and we’re about to head out the door to happy hour, but don’t want to walk in wearing a drab work outfit. If you run home and change, you miss happy hour, but if you don’t switch things up – you run the risk of looking too serious in an environment that’s supposed to be fun.

So what do you do?

Top: (c/o) BCBG MaxAzria via Marshalls $39.99/Jeans: H&M (old)/Sandals: Steve Madden $89/Clutch: TJ Maxx $19.99/Earrings: H&M $7.95

I kept today’s look easy with a loose-fitted top with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. I pulled it together with white chandelier earrings, a white box clutch and of course – my all time, favorite sandal – the ‘Stecy’ from Steve Madden.

You could also tuck this top into a high-waisted pleated skirt for a date with that special someone, or let the pattern pop against a pair of white trousers for the office. Either way, a lightweight silk top is a must-have piece for those of you living in warmer climates like yours truly.

One of my favorite ways to punch up an outfit is to do it with accessories. Not only do they polish off your look, but they add personality too. Plus, there’s nothing that brings a smile to a woman’s face like a pair of dazzling earrings, a pair of killer heels or an unbelievable tote (take note, my dear male friends). I’m telling you, adding in that one accessory could be the thing that takes your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. I’ve seen a simple black dress be transformed with the right accessories.

Whether an iPhone case, a bag, hosiery, an itsy-bitsy teeny tiny bikini or a piece of clothing, we have all polka dots somewhere in our closets. The pattern, equal parts classic and girly, can be so much fun to wear – and if you’re a style-extrovert like me, too tempting to ignore.

[c/o L’Occitane en Provence]

As much as I love soaking up the sun, going on vacation, breezy sundresses and longer evenings at the beach, the heat and humidity can be too much and wreck complete havoc on my daily beauty routine. During the summer, I always find myself questioning which lotion I should use, how to keep my skin refreshed, which perfume is delicate enough for daytime wear, and so on – because the last thing I want to do is attempt perfection when I know everything will melt away as the hot day drags on.

 I’m so excited to announce that I’ve been chosen to be a part of an exclusive group of bloggers for Marshalls, called #ProjectFab! Throughout the year, I’ll be blogging like… a lot (as if I don’t already)… about designer and name brands fashions found at Marshalls, trends and so much more. I’ll show you what investment pieces you should splurge on and what trendy pieces you should save on, walk you through my head-to-toe looks and give you advice on how to hunt for labels at your local Marshalls location (did you know every Marshalls location is different?).
