Enter Summer with Style.

  I may be writing this while it's pouring down outside WITH gales!? But summer is sneaking up on us ever so quickly, so it's that time of year to bring out our pretty prints and lace like fabrics for when we do have the right season. If you're like me, I like to update my wardrobe with a couple of statement pieces, but incorporate what I already have to create new looks. And you can do that with accessories too.
