Swap Out Your Classic Paint Job for These 5 Nail Art Ideas

A classic coat of nail polish is a lot like a white t-shirt and blue jeans: it will never go out of style. But just because the sheen of a high-gloss coat will always look great doesn't mean that it can eventually feel routine, too. Instead of sticking to a single color the next time you paint your nails, jazz up your hands with a bit of nail art. From easy geometric shapes to an out-of-this-world galaxy design, these five projects work for days when you want a subtle upgrade to nights when you want to go all out. Match these looks with an eye-catching jacket, brightly-printed shoes or a fun purse, and your turn with on-trend fingertips may just become a personal staple.

Two-Toned Nails to Rethink a Neutral Look

Neutral nails don't have to mean boring nails. This two-toned design uses nude and white polish to create an interesting finish that'll match all of the clothes in your closet. Paint on the nude base coat, and then use a small paintbrush or cotton swab to add the white dots to the bottom part of each nail. Your friends will never believe you did this yourself instead of splurging at the nail salon.

A Negative-Space Mani for a Clever Use of Color

If you prefer a pop of color on your nails but think you aren't skilled enough to paint on a design, this negative space look is the perfect solution. No steady hands required! Use small pieces of washi tape to section off a triangle at the bottom of each nail before painting like normal. Remove the tape before the polish dries and say hello to your new favorite mani!

Colorful Floral Nail Art for a Special Occasion

From a casual lunch with your friends to a garden wedding, there's no wrong occasion for romantic floral nails. But don't be intimidated by the colorful design. Since it's more of an abstract approach, the roses don't need to be perfect. Just take your time, and you'll end up with beautiful nail art that looks as gorgeous as a blossoming bouquet.

Galaxy Nails That'll Steal All of the Attention

Keep your outfit casual and go bold with your nails by painting on a stunning (but surprisingly easy) galaxy manicure. Start by brushing on a dark base coat, and then give it plenty of time to dry. After, use a piece of sponge to dab on a mixture of different colors for the galaxy pattern. Dots of white polish mimic stars to complete the intergalactic print.

Geometric Tips for Any Color Combination

Master this simple technique and you'll be able to create geometric nails in any color combination. Sticking to neutral shades can be the most forgiving option for beginners, but that doesn't mean you can't use bright polish, either. Since you'll be using strips of washi tape to section off your design, you don't have to worry about free-handing the triangle tips.

The Best Swimsuits for Apple Shapes

We've got top picks and shopping tips to make finding the perfect womens bathing suits for your body a cinch.

"Flatten My Belly!"

Even helpful salespeople don't always have your best interest at heart. Case in point: Cathy Thomas's strapless maillot. "It was the clerk's recommendation," Cathy explains. "The legs don't even fit right, but there were so many choices and I was in a rush, so I trusted her judgment." Cathy, though, needs a style that supports her chest and visually separates it from her stomach; ruching and tummy control offer subtle concealment.

1. What to Look For
Look for a style that supports your chest and visually separates it from your stomach; ruching and tummy control offer subtle concealment. "My stomach looks smaller without the suit digging into me. I love it!" Cathy says.

2. Tummy Trimmers
Stick with V-neck suits. They're the most flattering, and they draw attention up and away from your trouble zone.

5. Shopping Secrets from a Swimsuit Designer
Swimwear designer Malia Mills shares what she's learned from helping thousands of customers suit up for 18 years. "Women often think they need a bigger size to cover more skin. But it's better to get the right size in a fuller cut."

6. How to Find the Right Size
"To tell if a suit is too small, go by how it feels and not just how it looks in the mirror."

13 Game-Changing Ways to Go Glam This Season

Fashion rules are meant to be broken. Going beyond the whole "no white after Labor Day" rule (puh-lease!) and the age-old myth that you can't mix navy with black, we're ready to make daytime metallics a thing. Hear us out: During a season dominated by wooly knits, heavy-duty toppers and the prospect of bundling up, there's something to be said for embracing OTT metallics for work and play. 'Cause why the heck not?! Between swishy metallic skirts, slinky slip dresses and high-shine bodysuits, it's all about dialing it up this season, whether it be a fancy night on the town or just because. Make way for 13 game-changing ways to turn up the drama and go all-out glam this season.

1. ASOS Dolly Coat in Floral With Faux Fur Collar ($129): Found it. To all you vintage-loving girls who thought metallics just weren't your thing, we've uncovered the retro topper for you. This metallic jacquard number, featuring an intricate floral design and sassy faux fur collar, calls for a flapper-esque drop-waist dress and art deco-inspired earrings.

2. Scotch & Soda Metallic Trousers ($135): Whoever said you couldn't pull off lustrous fuchsia trousers in the workplace was surely mistaken. Pair 'em with a silk tie-front blouse, smart specs, a herringbone blazer and some good ol' suede block heels and HR won't bat an eye.

3. Topshop Metallic Parka ($250): A 50 percent chance of rain showers, you say? It looks like it's time to take cover in your fly metallic gold parkas for women. Rain or shine, it'll give you an excuse to embrace flashy metallics and show everyone who's boss. Toss this versatile hooded hero piece over a free-wheelin' jumpsuit, embroidered jeans or a roomy mock-neck sweater dress for some post-festival season flair.

4. ASOS Pleated Midi Skirt in Metallic With Contrast Hem ($64): Take a scroll through your Insta feed and there's a good chance you'll spot at least one Instababe sporting a twirl-worthy metallic pleated skirt — and for good reason. They can be dressed up with a blazer and ankle strap steppers or pared down with a slouchy sweater and Chuck Taylors. And a messy top knot is always the best accessory.

5. Halston Heritage Metallic Jersey Bodysuit ($195): Nothing to wear? You obviously haven't met a metallic jersey bodysuit with this much over-the-top appeal. The come-hither style may not be for the overly modest, but boy is it guaranteed to make an entrance at a Vegas-themed bachelorette party or black tie affair. Team it with high-waisted trousers or a thigh-high slit skirt, and toss on a body chain to complement the plunging neckline. Sky-high stilettos are obviously obligatory, 'cause flats just aren't going to fly.

6. Topshop Camouflage Jacquard Pencil Skirt ($95): Take the guesswork out of figuring out what to wear to a cocktail event or wedding reception by opting for this metallic jacquard print skirt that's downright sophisticated. Up the wow factor with a scalloped cami, sparkly chandelier earrings and a compact minaudiere clutch.

7. Topshop Moto Metallic Hayden Boyfriend Jeans ($90): Test drive a casual-cool downtown aesthetic with a pair of these slouchy metallic boyfriend jeans that can be dressed up or down. Style 'em for a lunch meeting across town alongside a silk blouse and d'Orsay pumps, or go full-on athleisure with an oversized pocket tee, a utilitarian jacket and sneakers.

8. Silence + Noise Satin Shine Slip Short Dress ($59): This just in: Snagging that coveted model-off-duty look is as simple as a few layering tricks. Take this high-shine slip dress, for instance — all you have to do is pop this wardrobe workhorse over a mesh tee and slip on some Chelsea boots for a street-inspired getup that demands attention.

9. Topshop Metallic Pyjama Shirt ($90): Perfect your roll-out-of-bed-and-go routine with this relaxed fit pajama shirt that can actually be worn IRL. We're dead serious. Style it alongside black slacks and heeled mules for the boardroom or a velvet pinafore dress and hoop earrings come the weekend. The metallic mint hue will lend just the right amount of glamour to every #OOTD.

10. Chi Chi London Bardot Metallic Jacquard Mid Length Dresses With High Low Hem ($129): Pretend like we're Blair Waldorf for the day? Don't mind if we do. Take style cues from the Queen B herself by styling this swoon-inducing strapless metallic dress with a tiara, simple pearl studs and Manolos for a head-turning look.

11. Zara Metallic Top With Frilled Hem ($36): Cue the fancy frills with this metallic top that can be worn as-is or layered over a button-down for a considerably more polished getup. Come the holidays, it'll straight-up stun with sequined pants and velvet platforms.

12. Kimchi Blue Floral Sheer Mesh Maxi Dresses on Sale ($89): Outfit conundrums simply don't exist when your dress is this DDG. Get ready to bring the drama by styling this sheer maxi, featuring shimmery gold blooms, with a gold choker and lace-up ghillies for a wedding under the stars or a fall soiree. Sign us up, please.

13. Zara Reversible Leather Jacket ($229): Keep the outfit blahs at bay with this reversible metallic bomber that's leather on one side and faux fur on the other. Sport the metallic side when you're feeling like Beyoncé and the flip side when you're just trying to be Miley. Either way, the swagger is on.

9 Tips For Dressing For The Workplace

When it comes to dressing to impress, there's no denying that Of Mercer founders, Dorie Smith and Emelyn Northway, know how to pull it off! Their brand features a collection of work-appropriate clothing that inspires us to bridge the gap between creative expression and professionalism. From ultra-flattering shift dresses to elegant blazers that can go from "desk to dinner" in a snap, the brand is catching the eye of working gals all over the world who are looking to up their style game at work without having to up their budgets.

Today, Dorie and Emelyn are here to share nine tried-and-true tricks for making an appropriately eye-catching statement while strutting the halls at your paying gig. Read on for their strategies, and then curate your own collection of must-haves here!

1. Little Black Dress

If you own one piece of workwear, it should be classic black sheath dresses. If you can't find one that fits you perfectly off the rack, make the investment to get it tailored. It's the essential building block of any work wardrobe. It also provides endless opportunities for layering, accessorizing and, thus, countless outfit options. And when you're in a pinch because you haven't done laundry, you can never go wrong with a great-fitting LBD!

2. Statement Color

If you like color, wear it! The rules of dressing for the office are changing. Even in the most formal office environments, a bold color is more than OK. In fact, it can be an asset—wearing a bold color in a sea of black suits projects confidence. Choose classic, not-too-tight silhouettes (like a hot pink pencil skirt), and pair the pop of color with neutral separates and accessories to make sure you don't overdo it.

3. Pocket Detail

If you are going to a networking event, wear a dress with pockets. Pockets provide a great place to stash your business cards so you can look professional and don't have to rummage through your purse to grab them.

4. The Perfect Silhouette

Always be mindful of your hemlines and necklines, and how they behave over the course of your day. When you're shopping, do a "sit down test" to make sure you won't suddenly show off your upper thigh when you take a seat at the conference table. Be wary of necklines that may unexpectedly open up or creep downward throughout the day. We found wrap dresses to be guilty of this, so we designed our own wrap mid length dresses specifically to wrap above the bust—no camisole necessary!

5. Legging-Like Pants

If you wear it to yoga, you shouldn't wear it to work. We constantly hear complaints from HR teams about employees embracing the athleisure trend in the office. So, invest in a great pair of skinny-leg work pants that feel like leggings for women, but aren't. Make sure they have "real-pant" features like belt loops or pockets that make it obvious you aren't wearing your Lululemons.

6. Neutral Sweater

Always leave a classic cardigan on the back of your desk chair for easy access during the day. Choose a neutral color that will go with anything. It's the perfect defense against over-air-conditioned offices, and will help you seamlessly transition between seasons. It will also keep your shoulders covered for that unexpected meeting with your boss.

7. Feminine Draping

Dress for comfort, but not at the expense of looking sloppy. Look for fabrics that are wrinkle-free to avoid creases from sitting at a desk all day. And if your idea of comfort means a looser-fitting dress (something that never touches your body, for example), make sure you aren't choosing something that resembles a sack. Opt for a style that has tailored detailing and a feminine drape.

8. Modern Blazer

Invest in pieces that can go from work to weekend. A tailored blazer looks equally chic as part of a suit for a big board meeting as it does over your favorite vintage T-shirt for Sunday brunch. When going for a more traditional look, choose one with a peaked lapel, and for a more modern look, go collarless!

9. Your Personal Style

No matter what your office dress code is, the most important thing is to always embrace your personal style and wear clothes that make you feel your best. When you are confident in your outfit—whether it's a feminine evergreen dress or pair of slacks and a button-up blouse—you will exude that confidence in everything you do, including totally nailing that important client presentation.

25 Epic Cosplayers to Inspire Your Disney Halloween Time Costume Game

There are many, many reasons to head to Mickey's Halloween Party, Disneyland's annual Halloween Fest. Not only is there free flowing candy, opportunities to meet a wide variety of classic (and rare) Disney villains (from the Queen of Hearts to Hades) and those super cool overlays (the Tim Burton take on Haunted Mansion: to die for!), but it's also the perfect place to get in touch with your inner cosplayer, Disney style of course.
Mickey's Halloween Party is the ONLY time when us adults can come through the gates in full costume, since this is a privilege that only children under 14 usually possess (and you know you're always jelly of the girl in the Cinderella gown). After you decide that you're going (and you should, you really, really should), then comes the hard part: figuring out who to dress up as! To help you out with the oh-so-important decision, we have 25 inspiring and awesome examples of Disney best halloween costume for you and your squad that go beyond the basic princess. (These magical costumes are great for Halloween activities outside of Disneyland as well!)

1. Inside Out: Get emotional over your choice of costumes with Joy and Envy from Pixar's Inside Out. Recruit a Sadness, an Anger and a Fear, and you've got the whole gamut of feelings. This one is relatively easy to pull off, as adhering to their color code is the most important (and bonus points for getting the appropriate hue of hair color).

2. The Girls from Beauty and the Beast: "When you hear your bae Gaston is now at Disneyland but Belle still doesn't give AF." Best. Caption. Ever. We love that this trio of pals went as the Gaston groupies!

3. Gadget Hackwrench from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers: Do you remember Gadget from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers? It doesn't matter if you do or don't, because I think we can all agree that this adorable (and comfy) costume is perfect for any occasion. You just need a gray jumpsuit, purple belt, goggles and a big set of ears. Done and done.

4. Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Take the traditional gypsy costume and Disney-it-up a notch with this The Hunchback of Notre Dame-inspired outfit. A white blouse, purple skirt and blue corset are all you need. Tambourine is totally optional.

5. Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from Zootopia: While you could do Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde in the outfits they wore for most of the movie, this couple mixed it up and went for the final segment of the film, when Nick signs up with the force. It's like a "where-are-they-now" spin on Zootopia.

6. Peter Pan: If you have a crew that refuses to grow up, this Peter Pan group outfit might be just the thing. While we do see a fair share of Peters and Tinks, it's more unusual to see a Wendy and a Tiger Lily.

7. Jane from Tarzan: Watch out Tarzan, Jane's coming! We love the incredibly cheery yellow dress that Jane sports in the 1999 Disney flick, but as you know, her dress doesn't stay that pristine for long. Note: This dress takes some serious planning to pull off properly.

8. Ariel from The Little Mermaid: While most costume-crazed ladies would go for the more traditional tailed Ariel, we're totally digging this toga-wearing version of the Little Mermaid ladies halloween costumes. And it is seriously easy to do; you just need a white sheet, a rope and a long red wig. Done!

9. The Cinderella x Snow White Mashup: If you can't decide between Cinderella or Snow White, why not combine the two? They both have horrible stepmoms, are good at cleaning and meet their prince in the end, so it's kinda the same thing.

10. Gaston from Beauty and the Beast: "No one's slick as Gaston. No one's quick as Gaston." Well, except this chick. She is! Why be beholden to gender when dressing up Disney?!?

11. Wendy and Dipper from Gravity Falls: It's not just movies that should get Mickey's Halloween Party love — it's sometimes fun (and easy) to look for inspo on the small screen. This Wendy and Dipper duo is a fab pic for couples (you can also add on a Grunkle Stan and a Mable to make it a group costume).

12. Tarzan x Star Wars Mashup: You saw the Jane costume higher up on the page, right? Well, if that's too girly for you, toughen it up by doing a Jane x Boba Fett mashup. It's crazy how well those two work together.

13. Lilo and Stitch: It's a bit of Disneybounding but in a way that still works for a costume party. Individually, you might not know who they are, but together it's totes obvs. Bonus: You can wear the dresses IRL!

14. Oogie Boogie from Nightmare Before Christmas: Who can make Oogie Boogie look chic and feminine? This girl! Burlap, bugs and green tights are all you need to pull this one off (the dyed green hair does help though).

15. Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit: The thing about this getup is that you have to possess the figure to pull it off (it helps that this cosplayer totally does). But if you've got it, flaunt it! You just need a body-hugging, low cut dress, blue gloves and a long red wig. If you get tired of wearing this, bring costume No. 8 with you for a quick change (it'll be way more comfy, and you already have the wig).

16. Disney Fairies: While many might default to Tinkerbell, you might consider going as one of her crew, like Fawn, Silvermist, Vidia, Iridessa or Zarina, the Pirate Fairy. For a big impact, get a whole bunch of you dolled up as Pixie Hallow residents — major squad goals.

17. Star Wars: The Force Awakens: This is a fab pick for a Force lovin' couple. While we don't know if we're more impressed by the costumes or the car, we do know that you can't go wrong with Star Wars-inspired halloween costumes for men. There are several combos you can do: Rey with Poe Dameron, Rey with Finn or even Rey with BB-8 (which works sooo well if you have a small child).

18. Bert and Mary from Mary Poppins: Cute couple alert! Cute couple alert! There are a whole bunch of Mary Poppins costumes out there, but the look really gets elevated when you have a Bert by your side (especially when he's wearing such a sporty jacket).

19. Aladdin: The blue face paint may be quite the commitment to this costume, but the results are worth it. Spray paint a pair of Mickey gloves to really give it that cartoonish vibe.

20. Moana: Disney's Moana isn't even out yet, but her cosplay game is already strong. We love this barefooted and boldly confident style (and also that there isn't a love interest in Moana, it's all about HER journey).

21. Rapunzel from Tangled: Who says you have to be a girl to pull off Rapunzel?!?! Not us! And not this guy. He totally went for it with his purple ensemble, epic long blonde beard and bare feet (nice deet!).

22. Elsa from Frozen Fever: Elsas are ALL OVER THE PLACE. So if you're going to pull out the Snow Queen this Halloween season, try her look from the short Frozen Fever (minus the sniffles, that is).

23. Star of Star vs. Forces of Evil: If you indulge in contemporary Disneyana on TV, then you've already fallen in love with Star Butterfly from Star vs. Forces of Evil, the magical princess from the dimension Mewni, and seriously, there's no way you couldn't. Dragging your own Marco around is totally optional.

24. Anastasia and Drizella from Cinderella: While many dream of being Cinderella, really, how fun is it to be that PERFECT? Not so much. Instead, grab a BFF and be Cinderella's really-not-so-ugly stepsisters.

25. Vanellope von Schweetz of Wreck-It Ralph: If you're more of a t-shirts and jeans type of gal, then the low-maintenance (yet totally adorable) Vanellope might be just your speed. And you know what: You can snack on as much candy as you want since you ARE a resident of Sugar Rush.

Tips: Disneyland has a few conditions that must be considered when selecting a costume for Mickey's Halloween Party. The costume in question must be family-friendly (so avoid those saucy Sexy Snow White or Sexy Nemo costumes). And as much as you know how amazingly awesome your costume is, you can't pose for photos for your adoring public in your costume (it confuses the kiddies and they'll think you could be a cast member). They'd rather you not wear layered costumes or bring big props (if you do, there will be additional screenings). And they warn that you should not wear long costumes, since tripping may happen. But most of all, they want you to have fun!

20 Duffle Coat Outfits For Fall And Winter

I think you know that duffle coats (or duffel) are very popular right now. If you don't quite imagine, what it is, it'a coat made from duffel, thick woolen fabric, and it has a capacious hood and three or four wood or horn toggles with leather loops, a buttonable strap neck and two large patch pockets. Many fashionistas and celebrities pick them up for their casual looks. So why do guys love such coats for women so much? First of all, a duffle coat is very comfy and, secondly, this type of a coat looks good for almost any occasions. Nowadays it has many modifications, for example, this coat can be without a hood and looks perfect for elegant outfits. Now let's consider some coat ideas.

Neutral Color Duffle Coats

Initially these coats had a dark color palette from navy blue to dark gray. If you aren't ready for bold clothes combinations, now you can find gray, black, navy blue, camel or beige coat and pair it with other neutral color clothes or some bright accessories depending on your wish and style. For more fashionable looks you can wear printed pieces of clothes such as striped shirts or geometric patterned skirts.

1. With neutral scarf, brown boots and big bag

2. With oversized sweater, crop pants and metallic shoes

3. With striped shirt and midi pencil skirt

4. With striped shirt, cuffed skinny jeans and black flat ankle boots

5. With striped shirt, mini skirt, black tights and marsala hat

6. With white dress, black tights, brown ankle boots and pastel color hat

7. With white shirt, dark gray sweater and skater skirt

8. With cuffed jeans, brown boots and black bag

9. With high socks and pumps

10. With blue sweater, skinny jeans and high boots

Bright Color Duffle Coats

I'm sure you'll fall in love with these colorful coats! Now you have a really big and difficult choice, cause there are so many interesting ideas. At first, just choose a favorite color for your coat: sunny yellow, adorable red, awesome orange, elegant marsala or stunning blue ones. Then try to mix it with simple clothes (for example, for every day you can choose jeans, black or white shirts and mid calf boots) or eye-catching ones. Don't be afraid to add to your red coat an orange turtleneck, or for your yellow one — a pink backpack, with pastel color coats you can put on printed shoes, for example, leopard ones. Just add to fall and winter some bright colors!

11. Blue coat with white shirt, black pants and pumps

12 Fabulous Ways to Wear Your Denim Overalls This Spring

Hey there my lovely divas! How are you? My post for today is called "12 Fabulous Ways to Wear Your Denim Overalls This Spring". Denim overalls were popular in 90s and they are taking the stage again this season. If you don't have such piece of cloth in your wardrobe, you better buy one and keep up to date with this fashion trend.

I need to mention that they are very comfortable for wearing, very easy to style and are durable, which gives you the freedom to wear them all day long. Like the other types of jeans, they can be found in almost any shade, form light to dark, as well as in any style, from fit and skinny, loose and baggy. Combine them with a plain shirt or crop top (if you fancy wearing crop tops of course). When it comes to the footwear, you can match them with heels and sandals for more glam look, while you can wear them with sneakers and flats for more casual look.

I have selected 12 outfits to inspire you to wear your denim overalls this season. Let's check them out and draw some inspiration. Let's check them out and pick an outfit. Enjoy and have fun!

Denim looks amazing with everything, so it won't be difficult for you to match it with different colors of shoes and tops. I have also selected some short denim overalls that are perfect for the warm and sunny spring and summer days.

Tips for Women Who Want to Look Super Sexy and without Looking Sleazy

There's a delicate balance to looking sexy without crossing over into being sleazy.
It's all about knowing how much is too much.
It's something that takes careful thought and consideration. These 7 tips can help you to look sexy but never sleazy.


If you want to look super sexy then you need to be selective in how you show skin.
Showing too much skin can come off as sleazy. A good tip to use is to show one area of skin at a time.
For example, if you're showing off your shoulder area of a bit or cleavage then don't wear a miniskirt at the same time.
Or wear the miniskirt but cover up a bit more on top.


You're not going to look sexy if you're wearing clothes that're loose and baggy.
Tents aren't sexy, girls!
You want to wear clothing that fits you and if you're comfortable with it, is form-fitting. It's important to remember form-fitting isn't skin-tight. It's clothing that fits you well but doesn't cut into you or show bra and panty lines.
Think how nice a pencil skirt can hug your curves and you'll get the idea.


This one's surprisingly easy.
Almost everyone has some red clothing items in their closet. Red is considered to be sexier than other colors. There's a lot of room for personal expression here.
You can wear a lace red dress with heels or pair a red top with your favorite worn-in jeans.
Go for whatever fits your personality best.


Statement pieces can absolutely up the sexiness factor.
The trick is not wearing too many at one time.
Statement pieces would be items such as leather clothing, stilettos or very tall boots. One statement piece at a time can speak volumes.
Play around and figure out which statement pieces are right for you.


The way you do your makeup can totally up your sexiness factor.
It can also take you into Sleazeville if you're not careful.
What you want to avoid is makeup overkill.
Play up your eyes or lips but never both at the same time.
A smoky eye or full-on red lips both scream sexy but going for both can spell disaster.


Everyone needs basic tees in their closet.
You pair them with jeans, shorts or even your pjs if you're just hanging at home.
Why not choose the tees that offer the sexiest cut?
V-neck tees are always going to look sexier than your average crewneck.
It's a little hint of cleavage which is perfect. After all, you always want to leave a little to the imagination;
that's the oldest (and best) trick in the book.


There's just something special about wearing heels no other shoe can give you.
They give your hips a tantalizing sway nothing else can.
They make your calves look slimmer and more muscular, too.
Additionally, they make you look slimmer and who doesn't love that?
Wearing heels is a win-win in every department!
These tips can help you to achieve the sexy look you want.
What're your favorite tips for looking sexy but not sleazy?
I'd love to hear your ideas!

Swimwear to Make You Feel Good

Morning ladies yup it's that time of year again when all we can think about are the 3 S's - sun, sea & swimwear!

So today I'm looking at swimwear that not only is beautifully styled, is well made, will last you a great many years to come but most importantly will make you look & feel good.

You may recall that last year I teamed up with the lovely people at Coco Bay an online store that offers one of the best choices of womens swimsuits I've ever seen.

So when they recently got in touch to see if I would be interested in working with them this year I didn't hesitate in saying yes as I totally fell head over heels in love with the swimwear I wore last year & really couldn't fault it in anyway.

Yes it is a little pricier to some swimwear but I honestly believe that in this case you pay for what you get. As I've already mentioned the quality is amazing, with all my swimwear from last year all keeping their shape & colour - non of the beautiful colour pieces faded in the sunlight & still look as good as new. But most importantly I had total confidence in the pieces in terms of holding me in & keeping in place - there was no hoicking up needed, or feeling like I'd soaked half of the pool up in my swimwear & I was even able to go in the pool without my detachable straps, as neither my bikinis or swimsuits moved, which isn't something I've ever been brave enough to do with other brands.

On top of this I just love the fact that Coco Bay offer a one stop shop for all your holiday needs. Stocking swimsuits, bikinis, kaftans, sundresses & accessories including jewellery, beach bags, hats, nail polish & flip flops to ensure you're one hell of a stylish lady poolside this summer.

Now I don't know if you're like me but the thought of donning my swimwear be it a swimsuit or a bikini is extremely daunting. After all there's not many people that are unlucky enough to see me in my underwear so the thought of wearing the same amount of clothing out in public always takes a few deep breaths of courage & if I'm honest the sooner I'm hidden on my sun lounger the better. So anything that's going to help in making feel that bit more confident is a godsend & whether it's because of the designs, colours &/or quality & fit of the swimwear I've tried from Coco Bay it definitely helps. After all I'm a firm believer that if you feel good you'll look good & who doesn't need a bit of help & confidence in that department?!

Coco Bay have very kindly let me pick a few pieces ready for our summer holidays this year (we're already on the countdown till our holidays in August - yup we're the saddos that have been on countdown since the 1st of January!!). So what did I pick? Well as I've already mentioned they stock one of the best selections of swimwear I've ever seen. Plus a huge plus in my eyes is that they offer several different designs of bikini tops & bottoms in the same colour, meaning you can personalise your swimwear to suit your own personal taste & body shape. You can even buy a different sized top to bottom as not many of us take the same size on top as we do our bottom halves & they even have helpful sizing prompts on each item.

Needless to say I spent a very happy hour or so looking through all their beautiful designs but in the end I picked the following pieces.

Starting with a holiday must have of a classic raffia fedora hat. Perfect for hiding sweaty beach hair not to mention protecting my face from the midday sun. Plus to go with my fedora this beautiful bikini set in the most gorgeous shade of red that will look stunning with a tan & I loved my Hipanema bracelet so much from last year that I couldn't resist this black & silver version. Seriously these are so perfect if you love the look of mismatched bracelets layered with a pretty summer top & make travelling light super easy from an accessories point of view.

For me the only thing that makes walking from bedroom to sun lounger bearable is the saviour of a kaftan & this pretty white number is just so beautiful. A great weight, that looks amazing crinkled & has the most stunning edging & detailing that I can't even begin to describe it. Plus of course being white will look amazing once my skin starts looking sun kissed & of course will go with any colour of swimwear. A real wardrobe 'must have', in fact I'd go so far as to say it's the nicest kaftan I've ever seen! You can also just see another wardrobe classic peeking through underneath, which is this lovely black Grecian style bikini. Again a style that will never date & is quite simply timeless.

And just so you can see how beautiful the detailing is, here's a few more views/close ups.

Now as much as I love a neutral wardrobe come sunnier climates I also love brightly coloured swimwear. So when I spotted that this Seafolly bikini in the same design as I wore last year, matched perfectly with this stunning beach bag it became a definite summer must. Like with my clothes I'm not one to wear patterned swimwear but as you can see from perusing Coco Bay's website you don't need to have patterns to have swimwear that has interest & design. I mean just look at the beautiful pleating on this bikini perfect for not creating too much attention without looking plain.

Plus this beach bag is just the perfect size for fitting in everyone's poolside necessities & beach towels. It even folds flat so is ideal for packing. Although I'm already thinking it might come in handy as an extra hand luggage bag if the shopping spree goes well & baggage allowance is looking tight ;-)

Now if you love a long maxi dress for summer you're going to love this one. Quite simply it's just stunning - easy to wear, beautifully cut & I just love the contrast of the fresh white background against the strong blue pattern. Heck it even features two of my favourite summer necessities - pompoms & tassels.

Here's a few more pictures so you can see more closely the style & design of this stunning dress. I just love the lower back, which I've teamed with this bra so no need to have to worry about going braless.

And finally one of my favourite colours teamed with my favourite pattern - if these flip flops can't be described as Bet-tastic I don't know what can!

Now I love a bit of poolside people watching & am constant amazed when I see women on holiday wearing heels/wedges to walk poolside but I've long learnt that if I don't want to avoid any shoe disasters such as slipping ungraciously on my bum on wet terracotta tiles etc then the simple flip flop is an essential & let's be honest quite frankly a wardrobe must have back home too. I just can't stand uncomfortable swollen feet. So what better flip flop than a pair of Havaianas - comfortable, stylish & they go with anything. I have a strong feeling these aren't going to be leaving my feet come the warmer weather.

Back to today & unfortunately it's not quite bikini weather here so I've packed away my new holidays beauties & I'm bringing out another love - denim - to play! Which I'm teaming with my new Marks & Spencer ruffle blouse. Now before you say anything yes I know I'm wearing the blouse back to front but I think I might prefer it this way. When I was trying it on I was thinking what a shame it wasn't buttoned at the neckline on the front then lightbulb moment & having inspected the blouse to check there were no darts in the front I quickly whizzed it round to give it a try & I think it looks ok. All I need to do now is take an unpicker to the label as it can currently be seen & it will be perfect!

Now you may have noticed that I've been quoting a discount code on my links. This is because the lovely people at Coco Bay have very kindly given me a code to share with you that entitles you to 20% off everything on their site - which is a fabulous saving & lasts until the end of July. So if you're on the look out for some new pieces for your holidays it's definitely one to take advantage off - simply use code MID20 at checkout to qualify. I'd defy anyone not to fall in love with several if not all of their range & you won't do better for choice as I know they take a great deal of pride & time in carefully editing their collection so that they can offer you the best quality products to fit & flatter & if you're unsure of sizing they even have a tailored comment for each piece advising if the fit comes up small, big or true to size.

So ladies what are your thoughts? As always I'd love to hear your views on their swimwear & accessories not to mention thoughts on any pieces you bought from them last year. Are you like me a total convert in paying that little bit extra so you feel & look great while exposing parts you'd normally keep hidden? And how does it make you feel? Did you feel that bit more body confident & happy? I'd love to hear.

For starters, rely on staple summer silhouettes — from crop tops to tanks and high-waisted shorts, there's an option for every occasion.

If you're heading out to a more formal affair, we love the idea of rocking a gingham midi skirt and wedges.

7 Irresistible Summer Nail Colors You Need This Season

Nothing ushers us into summer like a bright, beaming manicure. And this summer, nail colors are more spirited than ever. Say goodbye to spring's gentle pastels and the dark, brooding colors of winter -- unlike your typical summertime palette, nail colors this year are taking on a newer, friskier personality.

Top manicurists Jin Soon Choi and NCLA founder Elin Dannerstedt agree that Summer 2015 is giving us major room to play. Think: Neon colors, layered textures and holographics, all the way down to matte nudes and negative space designs. The inspirations come from everything summer -- from gorgeous weather and bare skin to red carpets and trendy '90s street style, says Dannerstedt. This gives us the freedom to strip our nails down to a minimalist mani one day, and dress them up with a bright confetti top coat the next.

Keep scrolling for 7 colors that inspire us to shake things up this summer.

The Shade: Fiery Oranges

Orange lips are dominating the red carpet this summer (See Kendall Jenner and Margot Robbie for inspiration). And now, the sizzling hue is making its way down to our fingertips. Rebel against the ladylike pastels of spring with a bursting orange lacquer. Follow up with a glossy topcoat for extra intensity.

The Shade: Ocean Blues

Vibrant blue nails are tough to pull off any other season -- blue is about as far from our natural nail color as you can get -- so now's the time to rock your cyans, cobalts and indigos. Blue nails really pop against clothes and evoke a certain funky, tomboyish vibe. They also make a perfectly unexpected pedi color.

The Shade: Retro Metallics

Metallic and holographic nail colors are inspired by '90s comeback style, says Dannerstedt. "We starting seeing this trend on fashion bloggers." Pair one of these trendy manis with a bold lip for a fun, retro vibe.

The Shade: In-Your-Face Pinks

Kick springtime's pastel pinks up a notch with these flamboyant colors, gracing the Summer 2015 collection of almost every major nail brand. These pigmented pinks offer a rule-breaking, no-apologies contrast to the edgy metallic trend. Try rocking these with a nautical ensemble.

The Shade: Garden Lavenders

"Pastels are in every year. It goes hand it hand with nice weather," says Dannerstedt. If wild brights make you nervous, opt for one of these classic, yet newly released soft purples.

The Shade: Opaque Neutrals

First spotted on the runway and red carpet, designers and celebs are pairing their summer looks with "twisted versions of opaque neutrals," says Choi. Creamy and matte nudes, sands and ballet pinks put a modern spin on spring's sheer shades.

The Shade: Confetti Coats

"Layering textures is hugely popular this summer," says Dannerstedt. Reflecting the season's lively spirit, many brands are releasing sparkle-laced lacquers and confetti topcoats, which can be layered over cream polishes for a fun, textured effect.
