"I'm running out of outfit ideas and it's only the first month of summer, what are easy ideas I can always have on hand?" — Jessica
Outfit inspiration is key to keeping your style fresh and on point. Similar to the photos below, my go-to outfits consist of a simple T-shirt and denim skirt or a breezy dress and block heels. So the next time you're stuck with "nothing to wear" or just need a fresh dose of style summer inspiration, be sure to keep these easy outfit combinations in mind.
"Where can I find unique items my friends and everyone else won't have?" — Sarah
Some of my favorite under-the-radar sites are Lisa Says Gah and Genuine People. Both are known for their tightly curated selection of clothing and accessories. Lisa Says Gah is also one of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow.
