A couple months ago I spent a month in France with a group of girlfriends, and having only packed one suitcase, I learned that basics are my best friends. Now, with my whole wardrobe readily available, I learned that just a basic tank top can go a long way. I feel comfortable, chic, versatile and sexy. Not to mention crazy affordable.
I love this olive tank, one because olive is my favorite color, but also because I wore it all day and night and it didn't lose its tight fit. Paired with distressed jeans and some fun pumps, I was out and about at Art Walk and felt chic but casual. I love that with any basic, adding a pattern in another article of clothing or via a statement jewelry piece like this tribal-esque necklace.
This maroon isn't normally a color I wear, but I thought it would be nice with a stark white, and there's nothing better than a linen wide leg for summer. Being that the pants are so lose, the tight tank worked perfectly to slim my figure and make it proportionate.

Lastly, this neutral tank was ideal to create a layered look with other neutrals and interesting details. Tanks like these work well with a light jacket, as you can take them off and we appropriately dressed, or leave them on and add color and interest with jewelry, prints, etc.

I recently bought the new Caress Forever Collection body wash, as I was intrigued to try the world's first body wash with Fragrance Touch Technology. It comes in two fragrances, and I opted for the Caress Love Forever one because it's a nice floral/sweet fragrance mixture that doesn't interfere with my perfume, but has a natural all-day scent that is activated by touch and leaves a long-lasting impression . It really lasts all day and leaves skin feeling soft and sweetly fragrant. I liked it because it is so feminine and it reminds me of my mom, whom I have never once seen in my life and not smelled that sweet scent she leaves everywhere she goes.
I always relate scents to memories, and I find that my sense of smell is keenly connected with emotions. Coco Chanel said, "Wear perfume if you want to be kissed." I find that smells evoke a strong sense of sensuality, emotion, passion and even affection. In the same way that most people love the way babies smell and it makes you wanna squeeze them and kiss them a million times, I find that having a feminine scent adds to my overall image. When I walk into meetings and wait for others to arrive, I love seeing a well-dressed woman walk in with a strong but not overbearing perfume smell. Can anyone else relate to scents being tied to memories and long lasting impressions?

Sometimes I look back on my blog and my instagram and see how over the past few years I have grown into myself and discovered my style more and more. While I still play the field, solids are what I do best in. I like to have jeans in every color, fade, and style so I can dress them up with heels and a belt, or down with a tee and sneakers and can be on the go easily. I love these Express jeans because they fit like a glove. I started wearing their jeans about two years ago, and they are still on my favorite denim destinations for their affordability, fit and variable styles.
I love this color, olive. I feel like it compliments my skin color and it works year round. I also feel like you can mix it with an array of colors like black, white, navy, cream, even red. I'm working on finding a great pair of pants in this color.
