Liu Wen is one of my current favorite models. The twenty-six year old is absolutely gorgeous both in print and on the runway. The Asian beauty came from a middle class family in China, and has become an international sensation since. She's so refreshing, and did I mention that she's STUNNING???

Fishtails peaked in popularity (for me, at least) about a year ago. One girl mastered the braid, and within a week it was as popular and mundane as dark wash skinny jeans. I had almost completely exhausted my ability to stand another fishtail when I was introduced to the above, re-invigorated version. It's thinner, wider, comes in twos, and I absolutely love it.

This summer I will wear:
1. Flare Jeans because I have a feeling they are coming back
2. A Fabulous fanny pack
3. White Blouses, black attracts too much heat
4. Birkenstocks to get those signature foot tan lines
5. Crop Tops because they provide adequate room for my stomach to breathe
6. A one piece swimsuit (hopefully to hide the fact that my ribs stick out more than my boobs)
7. A hat to keep the sun from burning my nose
*Kate Bosworth's wardrobe in And While We Were Here is providing me with some major inspiration, it's on Netflix just in case you're interested*

I will be getting my license soon, meaning that I'm going to need some major sunnies to help me navigate bright highways and streets. I'm definitely not one of those out-of-this-world lucky people that look good in any pair of sunglasses. My face is very particular and therefore requires a very particular type of sunglasses.
I'm no sunglass expert, but I'm pretty sure Karen Walker has got the ultra-cool sunglass design thing figured out. I also love the glamorous feel of Oliver Peoples, and of course, Ray-Ban is the go to classic.

I've always found Valentine's Day to be profusely tacky. It's this random freezing day in the middle of February that not only advertises cheap gifts and over consumption, but also threatens to reek havoc on our already dwindling New Year's diet resolutions. Despite my growing distaste for the holiday, today I had a bit of an epiphany regarding its true meaning. Even with all the fluff that goes into the sales and merchandise of V-Day, it provides a wonderful opportunity to appreciate the people in our lives that we easily take for granted.
So tonight, because I wasn't sent a dozen roses or a hand written card by some gorgeous Calvin Klein model, I won't be going out on a date like the rest of my friends. Instead, I will be enjoying a little home cooked meal with my parents, celebrating the two people who have always loved me unconditionally.
Who in your life deserves a little recognition this evening?
