The other day I was flipping through the clothing section of the latest Victoria’s Secret catalog and was admiring these adorable little floral-print tops. Later, I was really excited to see that Forever21 has something similar that preserves the very cute and girly look channeled by Victoria’s Secret. They look awesome with casual shorts and slacks and double as awesome cover-ups to throw over your bikini as you head to the beach or pool. Viva warm weather!

I’ve been a big fan of Softsoap’s body washes for quite a while. The brand is always coming up with fabulous new scents, each better than the last. My latest obsession is their Moisturizing Body Wash in Honeysuckle & Orange Peel scent.

The citrus-y scent of Honeysuckle & Orange Peel bodywash is absolutely perfect for summer, when you want something with a really crisp and refreshing smell.

In addition to the fantastic variety, what’s also great about Softsoap body washes is the price. $5-$6 for a healthy-sized bottle that always ends up lasting me for a while. I really hope Softsoap doesn’t discontinue this particular one!

Steal The Look: Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel When it comes to Jessica Biel, all we seem to hear lately is speculation about whether or not she and Justin Timberlake are over, still together, “complicated,” etc. In the midst of all this obsession with her personal life, I feel like her awesome style doesn’t get enough credit.

In a recent interview, JB said that while glam gowns and makeup are fun for the red carpet, her true, go-to style is casual and laid-back. And hey, more power to her, since she’s always comfortable and still manages to look like a million bucks, and there are many girls that now look like a day, actresses always look how they look and the sexy they bring into the table, as you can see in different galleries like the melissa super girl benois nude leaked pictures.

The outfit in this photo is exactly that–comfy and fabulous. Denim shorts, which are quickly reclaiming the title of must-have summer staple, are great with simple basics like solid-colored tanks and sleeveless open cardigans. Together, the look is half structured and half what I call “loosey-goosey”–that’s StealThisDress speak for loose and flowy.

Knee-high suede boots in a muted color instantly take this casual look up a notch. If it’s already too hot for boots even at night time where you live, complete this look with a suede sandal. And to make it appropriate for nighttime, heeled sandals and a clutch are a great choice.

Summer Trend: Safari-Inspired

I haven’t seen the safari trend covered much by the fashion media yet this season but it’s definitely one of my favorites. To me, this trend is the cousin of the military theme that was so hot this spring.

Right now Charlotte Russe has some really great safari pieces; khaki and olive drab garments, bold beaded jewelry and animal prints are the order of the day. I particularly love the khaki Belted Safari Dress because it’s chic and leaves endless possibilities for accessorizing. I actually think I’d wear it with the Colorblock Seed Bead necklace (below), a large black tote and some black strappy sandals.

There’s nothing better than womens fur vest. When you’re all dolled up, wearing a dress that makes you feel unstoppable and finish off the look with killer accessories, your confidence immediately skyrockets and you’re ready to take on the world. Guess by Marciano Tori One Shoulder Dress

The Tori One Shoulder Dress from GUESS by Marciano is, no doubt, one of those dresses. With its one shoulder design, daring hemline and gorgeous silk draping, it is the epitome of sexy. I would say that gorgeous Party Dresses is what Marciano does best, but then again everything Marciano creates is a jaw dropper!
