Shopping for Flip Flops

With the scorching heat of the sun, its time to let your feet breathe. Summer is not the time to wear boots or closed shoes because the heat could make you uncomfortable. Think of this season as the opportunity to be as casual as you can be but of course it still needs to be fashionable. Flip flops is probably one of the summer’s staples. A trip to the beach will not be complete without this favorite footwear.

This is probably the most relaxing pair of footwear in the planet and if made with the right materials it could provide an extreme amount of comfort to achy feet. Brazil is considered to be the birthplace of flip flops; this tropical country known for its wonderful beaches introduced brands such as Havaianas to the rest of the world.

Now women from all walks of life are seen wearing this type of sandals in different styles some are flats while others are wedged. Anyone could easily incorporate this footwear to any casual wear. In shopping for one, always buy the right fit. Refrain from buying a size that is smaller or bigger, most brands offer half sizes which means it’s easier for everyone to get one that is the perfect fit.

A good point is that price is not a huge factor to consider. Flip flops are probably one of the most affordable types of footwear anywhere in the world. With a wide range of colors and designs to choose from, you could own not just one but several pairs and match it with your summer outfits.

Choosing Children’s Bedding for your Kids

One of the many ways to ensure a sound sleep of your children is having comfortable bedding. Childrens Bedding plays a vital roll in their good sleep and being comfortable when they are in their bed. So, if you noticed that your child wakes up every now and then whining and the worst scratching, you also definitely need to check their bedding for it might be the culprit. Kids love to snuggle their pillows and blankets and if they have rough and dirty beddings, do you think they can sleep soundly?

Most parents also made it a point to make their kids room colorful and lively as this can excite their kids making it pleasurable for them to be in their room to play, study or sleep. There are also lots of beddings with cartoon characters or themes that you can opt to choose and always opt for the theme that your kids like.

Also, you don’t have to spend a fortune on beddings as there are many shops offering high quality beddings for children at affordable price. Just scour online shops or local malls for comparison and ideas.

Here are just some of the many children’s beddings from The White Company that can jazz up your kid’s room.

Tips and Tricks for Updating a Tired Wardrobe with Beautiful Silk Scarves

Do you ever walk into your closet and immediately feel bored? My husband accuses me of standing there as though I believe that if I stand there long enough, a new outfit will magically appear. But, tragically, I am stuck with the same outfits I’ve had for a few seasons now.

Of course, I can go buy a new outfit. But, I can’t go buy a whole new wardrobe, so I’ve been looking for ways to update some of my basic outfits that are still fashionable, but are feeling a bit “tired” to me.

The recent renewal of interest in scarves has really made it easier to punch up some of my outfits to make them more reflective of some of the current trends. Here are some little gems I found on Net-a-Porter.

For example, I’ve pretty much stayed away from the whole “skull” trend, thinking that these prints are certainly more suited to women with a bent toward a “goth” look. But, the Alexander McQueen skull scarves are so summery and fresh, that you kind of forget that they have skulls on them!

This one will pair quite well with most of my simple jeans and tees, giving them a quick shot of color and making them a bit trendier.

Another of my favorites is this Marc by Marc Jacobs scarf. This print is so bold, it’s sure to rejuvenate some of my basic business suits. I can’t wait to pair it with a pale grey number and some cute peep toe pumps.

I’m also excited about using some of these beautiful scarves as belts with simple summer capri pants and tops. How about this one by Antik with my black capris and a white cotton shirt?

This one, by Marni, is one I’m thinking of to dress up a pair of beige trousers and a pale blue short sleeve silk sweater.

Like many busy working women, I’ve always favored a pretty basic wardrobe that includes a lot of solid color pieces that can be mixed and matched. It’s a great choice for versatility, and helps me to appear to have more clothes than I really do.

However, sometimes these versatile pieces lack the punch and personality that one of a kind prints can offer a wardrobe. That’s what makes scarves like these such a necessary supplement to a fashionable wardrobe. A beautiful scarf like any of these can take an outfit from “simply fashionable” to “knockout memorable”.

So, if you’re tired of the basic wardrobe pieces in your closet, see which of these beautiful scarves can turn your outfits up a notch this summer.
