New Year's Style Resolutions: Wear More Color!

2.  Wear more color!  Lately, we've been in full-on neutral territory where it seems like all we have been buying (and wearing) is black, camel and grey. While these classic neutrals are the foundation for every wardrobe, the resort collections in vibrant orange, magenta and cerulean are beckoning! A bold splash of color - or an amazing print - is the perfect way to inject an early dose of spring into your winter wardrobe.

What to Pack : Miami

If you're like one of us and jetting off to the sun this Christmas, here are a few packing essentials and some guidelines to follow. Packing needn't be difficult. Put together outfits before packing and edit, edit, edit so as not to overpack. Pack key pieces that can go from day to night and a few great accessories that can dress up an outfit in the evening. Our warm weather musts : a bathing suit and cover up, flip flops, sunglasses, a great bag that can be used day and night, white jeans, a few tops and a dress that can easily transport itself from beach to dinner.
