Tips for Keeping Your White Sneakers Bright

Lately I’ve been living in white sneakers! They’re so easy to just slip on and they work well with any outfit. Whether its ripped denim or a flirty dress, I’m obsessed with pairing my looks with white sneakers!

Pretty in Pink Summer Look

In the summer I’m all about rocking a cute dress whether its day or night. It’s almost too hot to wear anything else! So I wanted to share a favorite summer look that I wore to a charity event recently.

I have a ton of sunglasses that I’ve collected over the years from inexpensive finds from street vendors to more luxe frames from designers like Tom Ford, Stella MacCartney and Givenchy.

They look great on women and men and compliment every face shape. These are the aviators that I wear …
