I love bringing awareness and learning about new causes. My mom actually found this amazing foundation and has been rockin' her purple bracelet for over a year now. Unsure if you have noticed but I have been rockin' my purple - Rockstar Ronan - FU Cancer bracelet with my arm candy. The Ronan Thompson Foundation helps fund research for neuroblastoma a form of childhood cancer. For me, I wear this for all the cancers out there and stand proud to say F U CANCER.

Its becoming a lot harder to post outfit post with a day job! The sun was setting as we captured these pictures of another office look. I'm loving the longer pencil skirt and of course the polka dots. The top is sheer and features a peasant collar!!

Hope you all are having an amazing, relaxing an enjoyable 4 day weekend. Let not forget what this holiday means and honor our fallen troops! Today I have a special Mens edition post on summer essentials. Here is what Mike from twitter had to say!
Of course, there are many styles that should be banned from every man's summer wardrobe. First and foremost, jean shorts are a definitely don't. They aren't very flattering, often come in odd washes, and create a sloppy, unprofessional look. Another trend to avoid would be tank tops. Tanks are very hard looks for men to pull off and can end up looking dated. Finally, men should be careful with flip flops; they should make sure to get a pedicure to clean up their nails. Keeping these don't do’s in mind is important so that men can start putting together a great new look. Finally, avoid old, sloppy baseball caps; these should be saved for working around the house, not out in public.
There are many great styles to try for summer, and every man should consider the following staples: button-down shirts, a relax pairs of shorts, and a great pair of designer jeans. Button down shirts can be dressed up or down, which means that a day look can be turned into a night look very easily.
At the same time, picking a pair of comfortable, casual shorts is a good goal for every man. Find something that fits well and is flattering to help pull a look together. Also, a great pair of jeans is perfect for summer nights when the temperature starts to go down. Pick a style that's fitted (though not too tight) and dark, which will be great for any late-night gatherings matched with some dusty boots for that laid by stylish look.
I love a good camo on men!
To really take a look to the next level, men should consider pairing accessories with these new outfits. Although some men may shy away from including accessories, they are a great addition to make any look pulled-together. One great accessory to try is a fedora, which is the type of hat that looks great on everyone, try matching one with a teal coloured watch for instant stand out!. Also, a great pair of sunglasses is a must; men should stop by a sunglasses store or eye doctor to find a pair that fits their face shape. Picking a quality shoe is also a great way to add accessories without going over the top. Men’s shoessuch loafers or boat shoes work well, both of which are comfortable and work with a variety of summer looks. Finally, pick out a great belt that ties the look together. The key is to not overdo the accessories and pick the ones that are comfortable and work with the outfit.
This summer, men should think outside the box and try out new looks to see what works and what doesn't work. With so many fun new trends coming out, it's a great time to check out different trends. By considering accessories and changing up their normal styles, men can look forward to a fun, fashionable summer! All of the accessories seen in this post can be found at Express.com!

This weekend we are honoring our troops! I would like to thank all of our service men for all that they do to protect our country. Growing up as a military brat I have gained a lot of appreciation for our men / women in uniform. This weekend Im hanging out with my military family and hope you all are enjoying a peaceful 3-day weekend!
Have you noticed my new summer love affair with Neons? I snagged this top at Love Couture a store I had never been in and went in an found this. I think the bright color is fun for summer! I paired it with these forever 21 leopard shorts and Steve Madden flats!
I love V's laid back style. She pair this Target stripe top with jean shorts, forever 21 feather earrings and boyfriend Juicy watch! I think its an easy breezy look for summer. Check out the last posting I did of V in a beautiful cobalt dress!
The next couple of days I'll share some pictures me and my girlfriends took. We all had a good time and just laughed! We all have such different style but I must say we are some stylish ladies. I love what O has on and its all from Target-- what a deal!

Heres a picture recap of my weekend in Vegas. My girlfriends from New Jersey came out to Arizona and then my sister (we've been best friends since childhood and we just say we are sissys) from Alabama met up with us in Las Vegas.
