To The Floor!

Dresses are coming in all new lengths this season, & one of my favorite styles is the Maxi: they make you appear so much taller! Although you may think you can drown in so much fabric, I think Maxi's do just the opposite! They look so chic flowing with the body. If you want to show of your body more, go for a thinner fabric, tighter silhouette, or wrap a belt around the waist. You can pair these statement pieces with flat sandals or tall platforms for any look you're going for. Singer22 has a huge variety of different Maxi silhouettes, colors, and prints! Find your perfect one here:
1. Halston Heritage   2. Parker   3. Gypsy 05   4. Parker   5. Otis & Maclain   6. Wildfox  
7. Jen's Pirate Booty   8. SENA   9. Blu Moon

Ballerina Babe

Now, I am not going to go all “Black Swan” on you ladies. Trust me… I have seen the movie and I have no intention to bring it up again (I am not a big fan of “scary-psychological” movies).

From leggings to tights, from cardigans to tees, channel your inner-ballerina with these Singer22-approved “Ballerina Babe” inspired apparel. Now, I am not a prima ballerina myself but I still do remember a thing or two from way back when (I can still remember how to do the first position!).

NOTE: I do not think these outfits are appropriate for ballet practice, but I am sure it does not hurt to look as if you belong (;

Color Block with Naven!

 

Color is all the rage right now and Naven has great bright colored separates for your wardrobe. I think the color blocking trend is such a fun way to make a bold statement. The Naven collection is great because the pieces are so classy and sophisticated but have a fun flare to them. You can try color blocking the Monroe shorts with any of their oversized blouses. You can invest in a few different colored Naven pieces and create so many different fun outfits!

Wild about Wildfox

Have you seen all the Wildfox that has arrived? I have been DYING! All day yesterday we shot Wildfox. There was literally not one moment of the day where I wasn't throwing on a bright neon color worn in t-shirt with a pair of jean shorts. There is nothing that makes me more happy, I have always been in love with wildfox but seeing all their new summer t-shirts really gets me excited. I love how they aren't afraid to be bold with their neons and crazy sayings. The hot pinks, yellows, bright reds, blues, they are so much fun and clearly make you look amazing with a tan. I would definitely wear one the muscle tank tops with jean shorts and a belt and heels out at night, but if not to go out in, these are the perfect shirts to just hang out in and go to the beach. I already bought my cozy wildfox neon yellow sweatshirt for the summer, so I'm thinking about going hot pink with a tank top. If Wildfox can be wild with their colors, so can I.

Sahara Summer Style

While a lot of people have been crushing over the 1970's hippie style (not that I haven't), I have especially been in love with looking like I just stepped out of the Sahara.  Taking a note from every girls best friend, Sex & The City, I'm steering my summer style toward white linen pants, silky floral jackets and wonderful wedges.  It's a look that's certain to take your wardrobe to the next level and it's as easy as 1, 2, 3 (4, 5). 

1. Equipment Blouse:  A must have item for every girls closet.  Equipment's Signature blouse will carry your summer wardrobe and you can wear it with everything you own.  It's light, comfortable and made from 100% silk. 

2. Jeffrey Campbell Shoe:  I love these open toed Jeffrey Campbell wedges.  They're trendy but understated and you don't have to worry about your feet cramping up. I can wear my Jeffrey Campbell's all day through night and my feet feel friendly. 

3. Eugenia Kim Hat:  The simplicity of this hat makes it easy to pair.  Shield your face from the summer sun with a trendy hat like this Eugenia Kim. 

4. Current/Elliott Trouser: They're wide long, they're white and I absolutely love these Current/Elliott trousers!!! You can wear them at night, during the day as a swim suit cover, or during the day to brunch. 

5. Winter Kate Jacket: The icing on the cake to this outfit is this Winter Kate jacket.  It's light and flowy and will be the statement piece of your sahara summer style.

Introducing: Theodora & Callum

I couldn't be more excited about the newest brand to be carried at Singer22.  Theodora & Callum scarves!!

Drawing inspiration from Morocco, Bali, Turkey, India and the Mediterranean as well as the bon vivant mentality of the late 60’s and early 70’s European jet-set, each style feels as if it has been discovered in a far-off locale.

The scarves are a true embodiment of the spirit of Theodora & Callum – eclectic, unique prints and exotic colors that are timeless and equally as versatile worn on the body, draped over a table, or framed on a wall.

Stumped on how to wear your new scarf?  Lucky for us, Theodora & Callum have made a "Ways To Wear Your Scarf" video that we thought you'd like:

Ani Lee & Me

Sorry I've been a little MIA – I had my wisdom teeth pulled on saturday (PAINFUL), but I made it in the day before to shoot some of the new pieces that had come in. I was so happy to walk into a dressing room of colorful bright summer mini dresses. I am a June baby, so to see these immediately struck the idea of birthday outfits. The Ani Lee strapless dresses are the perfect fit and honestly make anyone look sexy. It comes in this amazing orange which normally I would never go for, but once trying it on it was sort of a must-have in my wardrobe. With some cute necklaces and rings this dress could be the perfect night time go to outfit for the summer. The white and pink would suit the Hamptons perfectly on a night out – with a tan these dresses are sure to be the perfect piece. I paired them with the Sam Edelman pump – which I'm having a hard time choosing between. There is a black t-strap one and then a nude one, while they're both classics, I feel I should go with nude for summer, it goes with everything. I've never heard of Anni Lee until I worked at Singer and I'm so lucky to be introduced to all these amazing brands. After trying on all the new Ani Lee dresses, I checked out their link on Singer22 and saw some of the other dresses they made and of course they were pieces in the past that I absolutely loved. I think I have a new summer crush :)…
