Please refrain from the jumper/romper look this summer.  I know it looks updated and cool - but if you are over 30, it is a no-no!


Bright neon nail colors are really popular right now.  Don't try it unless you want to draw attention to your hands when you talk.  It can be very distracting.


Are you planning on attending any weddings this summer?  Here are some tips on how to make the best impression...


  • Beachfront - wear a sandal instead of a flip-flop
  • Backyard - don't dress like you are going to a BBQ and watch heel height - you may dip into the grass.
  • Church - a bit more conservative and formal - bring something to cover your shoulders during the ceremony.
