I’m an Oxford man, myself…

For close to decade, whenever the summer months rolled around, I refused to wear anything but my flippy floppies!  Now that I’m pushing 24 (frightening) I’ve been forced to face the fact that while comfy, my rubber flip flops are about as fashionable as BP is environmentally friendly.  So I’ve relegated the flops to the...
Bust-in' Out

Bust-in’ Out

June is quickly approaching (can you believe it’s about to be Memorial Day?!) and soon we will be sitting on the beach, soaking up the sun, and flipping through the summer magazines for some style inspiration.

Just keep swimming

Just keep swimming

These ruffled bikinis harken back to the swimsuits of my childhood, complete with bright colors and ruffles galore! I would definitely still rock them now. The ruffled top is great for the boobily-challenged (read: me) and the pretty peach color is flattering on all skin tones. Quiksilver, a brand previously championed by surfer babes and...

Cop This Look: Beachy Chic

Cop This Look: Beachy Chic

Still have a while to go before beach season (with the exception of all you spring breakers!) but might as well start daydreaming about it now: boardwalks, sand, sun, surf, friends, windows down.
