21 Things to Do Before Summer’s Over

21 Things to Do Before Summer’s Over

Happy Solstice! Today marks the official start of summer, and I couldn’t be happier. Warm, sunny weather is especially rare and precious to those of us here in Seattle, so the city tends to shift into overdrive in the summer. It’s like everyone mutually agrees to jam 12 months’ worth of fun into a 3 month time span, starting with the annual naked bike ride through the Fremont District at Seattle’s annual Summer Solstice Parade. Because nothing says “summer” like the meeting of body parts,... Read More

It's Thursday once again, which means it's time for another edition of Throwback Thursday. We are simply having too much fun with the celebrity childhood photos to stop now. And this week's photo is a real stumper, if I do say so myself.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Fashion: 4 Friends, 4 Distinct Style Profiles

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Fashion: 4 Friends, 4 Distinct Style Profiles

Delicious mysteries, jaw-dropping plot twists, drool-worthy guys … there are so many reasons to love Pretty Little Liars (which returned for its fifth season last week), but my favorite reason has to be the fashion. Aria, Hanna, Spencer, and Emily share a lot of things (secrets, suspicion, ominous text messages…) but one thing I love about PLL is that each Liar has her own unique, personal style. Throughout the seasons we have seen each girl evolve in her own skin, and the best part is that regardless... Read More

Summer 2014: Must-Have Fashion Trends By Style Profile

Summer, glorious summer. We've yet to meet an individual who is resistant to its charms. Balmy breezes, golden dusks, temperatures rise, and necklines plunge. Summer is a time for relaxation, especially as it relates to that white-knuckle grip you’ve held on your traditional wardrobe standbys. The trends this summer are particularly playful. Think California hippie cool meets burnt out ‘80s Miami beachcomber. Colorful acetate shades, palm tree and pineapple prints, hats, gladiator-inspired sandals,... Read More

So, in honor of Orange Is the New Black kicking off season 2 this weekend, we're exploring ten stylish ways that the rest of us can rock this summer's trendiest color. We're not sure if the show's creators meant to spearhead a trend with their title,... Read More
