    Beauty: 6 Summer Scents To Try 

    Today Faith Pierce, our fashion and beauty contributor, is sharing some amazing summer scents to try. I love trying out new scents and summer is the perfect time to switch things up and go for a scent that is fresh and light. Do you have a signature scent or do you like to experiment with different fragrances?

    Until recently, I was a one fragrance kind of woman. I never strayed from my beloved Chanel (a choice I still included in this post - it fit the theme all too well). Lately, I have been incredibly intrigued by scents and wanted to delve into and learn more about the word of perfume. After a lot of research (and some testing) here are a few I think would be perfect for summer. I’m not an expert, so I would love to hear what fragrances you love!

    Balenciaga, Rosabotanica is a woody scent with hints of green, citrus, and rose. Rosabotanica is a fresher, sheerer version of it’s sister fragrance Florabotanica. It’s earthy and fresh, a perfect choice for summer.

    Chanel, Chance Eau Fraîche is actually my signature scent. I have worn it for years and until recently it was the only perfume I could stand to wear - so I’m a little biased. It is woody and citrusy with floral and slight musky tones to it. The scent is very clean and crisp. 

    Giorgio Armani, Acqua di Gioia is probably one of the top scents that showed up during my research for “summer fragrance”. It is citrusy and aromatic with a very green and sweet undertone. Armani himself explains that the scent was inspired by holidays spent on islands and an escape into nature. The bottle’s shape is reminiscent of a water droplet. 

    Maison Martin Margiela, is green and woody with tones of citrus and musk. Many say that the scent has an aroma of greenery and the earth after rain - the ultimate summer smell.

    Bobbi Brown, Beach is a close runner up to my coveted Chanel. The fragrance is sandy and floral with aromatic and salty undertones. When smell this I instantly think of long days spent on the beach with nostalgic hints of sunscreen. 

    Elie Saab L’Eau Couture has notes of white floral and almond with nutty and vanilla undertones. It is part Elie Saab’s Ready-to-Wear S/S 2014 collection and notes from the create list it as an “echo of sun-kissed femininity”. It is a soft and sweet scent for summer. 

     *I found the site http://www.fragrantica.com/ incredibly helpful in learning about the different components of each perfume and how they were created.

    This Week's STYLE FINDS 

    This weeks Style Finds were all great pieces to invigorate your summer wardrobe with. On Monday I featured the quintessential silk cami, perfect to pair with white jeans for a night out. Tuesday was devoted to the edgy shark tooth cuff from Grantlion at StyleCable. This amazing bracelet is the perfect way to add a subtle touch of gold to your look. On Wednesday I showed off the simple and chic white Madewell vest. This piece has incredible tailoring and can be worn in so many different ways. You can pair it with a maxi dress for a more formal look or you can opt to wear it with jean shorts and a simple T-shirt for a laid back feel. Either way you can’t go wrong. Finally, Thursday was dedicated to the sleek black jumpsuit. This is a summer basic because it is such an easy piece to make a style statement with. Not matter how you wear it, with wedges and a colorful clutch or gladiator sandals and gold accessories you will never cease to look stylish. -Carly

    Favorite Swimwear Summer 2014 

    Today our fashion and beauty contributor, Faith Pierce, is sharing her favorite swimwear for the season. 

    With Memorial Day behind us and the Fourth of July on its way I decided that now was the perfect time to share some of my favorite swimsuit options! Three trends I’m loving at the moment are the classic/retro style suits that include high waisted briefs and one pieces, fun prints like florals and timeless stripes, and some more sportier options. My two personal favorites are the high waisted Top Shop bikini and the peachy pink bikini from Triangl Swimwear. 

    Let me know in the comments below which suit style you are loving!

    What To Wear: Weekend 

    As soon as the weekend rolls around, it is time to relax and recharge. Whether that entails sitting by the pool or catching a movie, what you wear shouldn’t be a production. Instead, trying mixing your wardrobe basics with a pop of pattern or color for an easy summer look. Olivia Palermo is a pro at combining patterns without creating disjointed or overwhelming looks. This effortless summer ensemble is a prime example of just how she does it. Most people would never think to combine cheetah with studded heels and a polka dot shirt, however Olivia balances all of these designs. The key is to pick pieces with subtle patterns and to choose colors that will all work together and are not too independently strong. Palermo opts for a lightweight white polka-dot top with understated cheetah print shorts and a studded strappy sandal. All of these pieces are either the same color or pattern and that is the crucial component to recreating this look. She then completes the ensemble by layering feather jewelry and a carryall leather tote. Collectively, this ensemble proves that there is a way to wear multiple patterns and colors without it resulting in an overwhelming look. -Carly
