Summer Coral Crush

Spring and summer are all about color! You can add just one piece to your outfit or rock an entire look of colors to jazz it up a bit. I love bright colors, especially colors in the coral family, because they make me look tan and they are a great pop, without trying too hard.

Summers are so busy, so if you can find pieces that can instantly take your look from blah to GLAM buy them... immediately! This blazer can help to take any outfit to the next level, it's great for day or night and really does go with so much. 
When you're shopping for summer pieces, I try to find things that I can wear again and again in a number of different ways. I definitely do have shorts in a pretty strong rotation in my wardrobe because they go with so much. Here are some of my season shopping secrets:
When I'm buying pieces for an upcoming season, I head over to some of my favorite fashion magazines to see what trends I'm loving. People StyleWatch is definitely my favorite! I take pictures of all the things I like on my phone and then I always have a "wish list" with me when I'm out. I try to find pieces that are similar and then delete them off my phone so I'm not tempted to buy a bunch of things that look similar. What's that saying  - out of sight out of mind? I also try to set a spending limit for myself, which helps to me not splurge on items that are really trendy and won't last past one season. If I am going to splurge on something, I do my best to make sure it's more of a classic piece that will last for a few seasons.
What are some pieces you're coveting for summer?
