This season’s hottest trends are hardly reserved to cutoff shorts and crop tops. Summer just wouldn’t be complete without draping your body in a comfy, long and sexy maxi dress. It channels a casual, hot-weather glamour that is perfect for anything from a spontaneous weekend getaway to an exciting dinner date. It also looks absolutely gorgeous with basic summer accessories like fedora hats, wedge sandals, statement necklaces, layered bracelets, dangling earrings and oversized totes.
Don’t know how to wear them if you’re petite? Tall? No problem! Fashion bloggers Sydne Summer and Devon Rachel just launched a how-to video show together on YouTube called The Petite and Tall Show and featured some of our maxi dresses. Fashion dilemma averted!
Make sure to check back with the girls for more styling tips on both their channels (Devon Rachel and Sydne Summer).

There are many things that define a going-out outfit. One of the key elements to completing a head-to-toe party look, besides the shoes, is the bag! This is why we’re currently obsessed with minaudieres (mi-noh-dyairs). We love that we can carry them in our hand or over the shoulder and they’re big enough to fit our phones and plastic. Seriously, obsessed!

Whether it’s a flirty skirt, a sexy cocktail dress or a comfy top, we’re obsessed with fuchsia pink! We think it’s the key to unlocking our full summer-chic potential—we’re talking anything from board meetings to dinner dates to our weekly shopping therapy sessions with our girls.
Shop: Look 1, Look 2, Look 3
WHY WE LOVE THESE LOOKS>> There’s nothing quite like fuchsia to give our hot-weather staples a girly, summery pop. It’s attention grabbing and flattering. What’s not to love?
HOW TO MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU>> Balance out this look-at-me hue with neutral separates or match it to a pretty print. Finish with metallic accessories to really give it that glam edge.

Staying fit and healthy can be difficult for those of us who, let’s say…like our cocktails like we like our men (ahem, very strong) and point wildly while shouting “tacos!” at anything that remotely resembles a food truck after a long night of living it up. In a perfect world one hour of dancing would cancel out one hour of drinking, but it doesn’t…so here are some tips on how to stay on top of things.
When looking to start, re-start or continue a fitness routine there are three things we found help us get the ball rolling:
1. Inspiration. We got ours from vlogger Jarmine from JLovesMac1.
2. Nutritious, easy food. Nothing like complex recipes containing ingredients we can’t pronounce to start making a chocolate bar and half a bottle of wine look like a perfectly legitimate dinner option. That’s why we look to Kristin’s food blog Iowa Girl Eats for anything from skinny summer cocktail recipes to workout schedules.

3. The gear. Knowing your routine and dieting is half the battle. The other half is all about feeling good and comfy in a stylish workout outfit. With the perfect look and the right attitude, you can accomplish anything!
