The summer season can get very busy with meet ups, dinners, coffee dates and just plain old fun. All of these fun events require the same thing… outfit planning. It can get difficult at times because you do not know what to wear when. I am queen of not knowing what to wear just ask my husband. It takes me 30 minutes to pick and outfit, another 30 minutes to put it on and then another 30 minutes to put on my make up. Yeah it is long process. To cut down the time I have narrowed down my fav piece into one look to wear when I do not have the time to pick. So what I have done is that created a “ Summer Uniform”. Yes a Summer Uniform.

What to Wear This Summer
I have created an outfit that I can always pull on quickly. Ironically it is a black and white look. You know how I feel about black and white. Not really a fan unless it is in a print. Ha!My summer uniform is a simple black mini skirt, white dress shirt and simple sandals and my Chanel. The skirt is stretchy so it is a contrast to the men’s dress shirt. My Chanel can hold so much so it is a perfect bag for dinners and lunch dates. My sandals are the blogger sandals of the year from Zara. They are so unique and covered in pearls. It is such an easy look and that is the point.
Creating a summer uniform is all about your personal style. You want your summer uniform to be somewhat neutral and easy to wear. If you have a colorful printed dress that you want to be a summer uniform, feel free to make that look your fav all summer. Regardless of what you pick as your summer uniform, You want to feel confident and gorgeous in that outfit.

One of the joys of Christmas is giving gifts to children. They are just full of excitement and fun. There is nothing better than seeing my godsons smile when I give them a a gift they really wanted and somewhat earned during the year. I also spoil them all the time so gifts at Christmas are the icing on the cake.
The question when purchasing gifts for children goes like this:
" What should I get for a girl?"
" What should I get for a boy?"
Above I have selected a few gifts that I think any child would appreciate, enjoy and love. There are a variety of gifts for a variety of ages and some are gender neutal.
Also, think about the the children that do not have.
Purchase some gifts for them and drop it off at your local shelter.

In my post on Monday, we styled a cool outfit for Christmas dinner. I got a few comments about the look. It is casual and perfect for a cozy dinner with the fam. But I know I have super glam girls who love to dress up for Christmas dinner. So I headed to the vault and pulled this look together.
Here is a more glam look for dinner but you can also wear it to walk the dog. Ha! I know PETA won't like my fur stole but it is vintage. The skirt I made a while back and the bodysuit is from ROSS. The gloves were a gift from my husband a few Christmases ago.
My shoes are by Louboutin and add a litte more sparkle.
I love wearing white blouses with full skirts.
I wore a similar outfit in the UK and it is my go to look.
What glam holiday outfit will you wear this season?
