Chic and breezy summer style: new editorial with teen model Tèa Elbaz

Here’s a look at my new juniors summer fashion and beauty editorial with Tèa Elbaz. Strong eyebrows, turquoise eyeliner in a cat-eye swoop, fuchsia matte lips,  stripes, pops of color and vivid florals all make for easy summer style.  Accessorize with bold pieces such as a cute lips purse and a lady-like statement necklace, mixed with florals and stripes, for a style update.  Frame your face with bold eyebrows and pull hair back or up to show them off.Stripes are loud and proud this year so go big.  Crochet crop tops and lace shorts are breezy and cool for summer.  Mix patterns and colors, prints and florals, like with this sporty rash guard and skinny jeans.  Let hair be natural with ponytails and skinny braids, and have fun with colorful makeup with like Tèa’s turquoise eye liner and matte deep pink lips.  Metallic belts amp up the style of simple t-shirt dresses.  Jean shorts and chambray shirts are summer essentials:  dress them up with graphic short-sleeve pullovers, floral sneakers and a chic chain strap bag.  Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean style takes a vacation!

Peter Pilotto for Target launches today!



Star designer Peter Pilotto has collaborated with Target on a dynamite collection of affordable and highly coveted fashion and accessories for Spring 2014.  Being a huge fan myself, I was at Target thirty minutes after the door opened and by that time there was nothing smaller than an XL on the shelves at all, and there was a line of women with carts overflowing with dozens of pieces each.  I had done my research online before I went and knew exactly the pieces I wanted and with a little persistence and patience, those exact items came back from the     dressing room to be restocked.  Lucky!! I will be wearing this vibrant tank top while I shooting in Miami these next few weeks, not to mention these amazing sneakers – I live for color and these particularly happy combinations are perfect for me.

My advice is to get online quickly if you want to score some of these amazing pieces for     yourself.  There are gorgeous little dresses and skirts that will be your favorite looks for work, weekend brunch and dinner dates, as the season transitions from winter into early spring. Don’t be left out in the cold!

You can also find the collection on Net-a-Porter, so if your choices and sizes are sold out on Target.com you have a second chance.  Hurry!
