Perfect Summer Accessory: White Teeth

Nothing complements all your fun summer fashion better then a nice, bright white smile. I find that especially in the summer, when skin is a bit tanner and the clothes a bit brighter, a white smile is the perfect accessory. In the last few years lots of new over the counter products have come out for the everyday gal who can’t afford in-office whiting. The GO SMILE Smile Whitening System is a product that has less sensitivity because the apply the product right on the teeth only. Although GO SMILE products tend to cost a bit more then the grocery store variety, they have been super successful and a good way to jump start your whitening efforts.

Of course when talking about teeth whitening, Crest has to be mentioned. In my mind they were one of the first companies to offer at home whitening at an affordable price. The latest product from them, 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects, has a better sealed strip and is a once a day 30 minutes treatment.

If you don’t want the time or the commitment of strips or other at home whitening, then maybe just ease into it with some whitening toothpaste.  There are so many different types and brands of whitening toothpaste, it would be impossible to cover. So just head on down to your local store and pick the one you think you will like best, I really like ARM & HAMMER Advance White Brilliant Sparkle.

Survive the Heat in Style

The temperatures are rising high enough for many to abandon all sense of fashion and jump right into the shorts and t-shirt look. Here are some great picks for tops and dresses that can keep you looking hot while feeling cool during these simmering summer months.

Tank Tops
The key to a cool tank top is to pick breathable fabric that is also washable.  Dreamy Designer Sweet Pea’s signature nylon mesh is a great choice for summer. Like this 4 Tiered Ruffled Ruffle Tank in rain (blue).

This tank if full of flirty fashionable details but is soft and comfortable enough you will feel free and easy in it.  This tank is perfect for an outdoor bbq or even a a hot day at the park.

One of Vintage Fringe’s newest arrivals is also a perfect pick for a hot summer day.  Collective Concept’s trendy Racerback Flared Tunic Top is a great example of California style summer clothing.  First this nuetral color is both trendy and smart for hot summer days.  This tank is loose but has so many flattering details like the beaded straps, tunic length, and racerback.  Wear this tank anywhere this summer and you will stay cool and oh so stylish.

Short Sleeve Tops

Splendid no doubt had hot summer days in mind when designing it’s Navy Slub Shadow Stripe Waist Tie Top.

The wide sleeves and signature jersey slub fabric makes this short sleeve top a great choice on a hot day.  I also love how Splendid infamously makes a clean and modern statement with color choices that are both flattering and classic.  Pair this top with khaki bermuda shorts or denim capris… the options truly are limitless.

Designer Dresses

On those scorching summer days summer dresses are the coolest choice to make.

I love love this Modal Jersey V Neck dress also designed by Splendid

You can feel cool and trendy in this adorable jersey dress in blueberry (light purple).  This dress has a flattering empire waist, is machine washable, and is the perfect length for a cool summer dress.

From tanks to tees and even dresses, being hot is no excuse for not being fashionably adorable.  Don’t miss Vintage Fringe’s Summer Steal’s Sale where you can get 30% off everything until July 28th.

Detailed Summer Shirts

In fashion, versatility is high on most women’s list of importance because we all do so much and require a wardrobe that can keep up. In today’s economy especially we have to be a bit smarter with what we buy and how we can use it for different occasions. I for one am all about a top that can take me from grocery shopping,  to a business meeting, to meeting the husband{or girls!} for dinner.  I think that a shirt with detail is the easiest to dress down and look chic or dress up and look fabulous.

Scoop Neck Sequin Top by Collective Concepts

Check out the beautiful sequin detail on the shoulder of this Scoop Neck Sequin Top by Collective Concepts. It is shown perfectly dressed down for summer and yet could easily be tucked into a pencil skirt for work or pared with leggings or skinny jeans for a night out, love that!
V Neck TIe Wasit Tunic

Secondly, the ivory embellishments at the neckline of V Neck Tie Wasit Tunic by Collective Concepts are just gorgeous. I love that the deep V and cropped short sleeve all bring the attention up, elongating both the neck and the arms making us all look a bit sleeker. The detail once again makes this top easily transform from day to night and the neutral color is a perfect choice for all. I for one would par it with leggings and embellished flat sandals.

So, tell me what are your favorite looks for going from day to night? Do they involve something that is embellished?

Chic Tank Tops by Collective Concepts

When it comes to summer fashion, looking good and not melting in the sun can be tricky. Lucky for us, tank tops are everywhere and Vintage Fringe has some new super chic tanks that won’t break the piggy bank available. I am loving the look of longer tank tops with leggings, it is comfortable and much more light weight and breezy compared to jeans. Check out this Racerback Flared Tunic Tank Top from Collective Concepts. The neutral color is great and it is so easily a weekend piece over leggings, or if your dare, pare it with some sky high heels and hit the town at night. The beading detail is great and right on point with today’s trends.

If you didn’t hear me before, stripes are in and will probably be in for a while. There is something about stripes that reads laid back chic. I love this next look with sneakers and cropped skinny jeans. The Lace Trim Stripe Tank by Collective Concepts has a comfortable cut with lace and pocket detail.

Lastly, lace seems to be showing up everywhere right now, from leggings to tops, to dresses and this Lace Tank with Pocket fits right in. Wear it over a cute shirt, under a cropped blazer or even over a swimsuit. The options are many for this chic design.

Smart Summer Sunscreen

Kim Kardashian with a wicked sunburn.

Kim Kardashian with a wicked sunburn.

We have all been here haven’t we? The one time when we fell asleep, forgot to re apply, or maybe just wanted to start a “base” tan. Whatever the reasons, sunburns seem to happen and they damage skin more then we like to acknowlege. Here are a few easy ways to stay protected, so that we don’t end up looking like Kim Kardashian without feeling like a grease ball.{which I think is atleast one of the reasons that women tend to not protect themselves.}
Supergoop SPF 30 Sunscreem Swipes

Supergoop SPF 30 Sunscreem Swipes

I love the idea of just being able to wipeon sunscreen, no rubbing in, no white residue! These Supergoop SPF 30 Sunscreem Swipes have zinc for sensitive skinand can easily be used on the face or the body. They are non-greasy and a great easy option to just keep in teh car or toss in your tote.
Clinique Sun SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick

Clinique Sun SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick

Another great way to get coverage as well as convience is in a stick formula. This is not ideal for all over coverage, but for face, or other small areas it is ideal, non-greasy and again easy to take with for second applications. Try Clinique Sun SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick, which is allergy tested and 100% fragrance free.
Sephora Sun Safety Kit

Sephora Sun Safety Kit

If you are not sure if a lotion, spray, wipe, powder or cream with suite you best, try a few smaller ones and then decide what you like best. This Sephora Sun Safety Kit has over 10 different products to try before committing to the full size version.
The sun is out, go and enjoy it! Just be sure to protect yourself first! What is your favorite form of sun screen?? I like powder or spray best, but I think I will give the wipes a try soon.
