Heat wave: Minimal

We all plan for the perfect time of the year right before the heat wave of summer, and just as winter has closed it's door. Cool breezes to lift the leaves and enough sun to give both glare and reasoning behind wearing shades. This is ideal, resort weather even but realistically it never quite occurs. Straight to "what's the least amount of clothing I can wear without looking like I'm wearing a bikini". Florida sun just isn't pretty, but if you live in it you have to deal with it. Minimal straight to the point clothing is what works and is all I want to wear.

Grass is greener

I say green and you think money? Fashion and beauty leave little room for the color green, and this forgotten hue needs a brush of love; well deserved love. A good mannequin manicure extends the limbs and black will always be the new black, but an electrified green does something more. Neon green; border line bio hazard shades come with edge, glares and stares. They stand out; isn't that what a good manicure entails? No matter "winter, spring, summer or fall"... "you've got a friend"... in green ( nod to Carole King).
