Can't you just see him throwing his jacket over a puddle for you to walk across? Although hopefully you'd stop him because that is a GOOD jacket. Priorities, girls.

How cute would those look with a shiny red apple? Or better yet, these puppies:

How to: Dip tops of cupcakes in royal icing, letting excess drip off, then let stand until set. Unroll fruit leather, and cut strips 1 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. Fold ends in toward the center, forming a 3-inch piece. Cut another strip 1/4 inch long and 1/2 inch wide. Wrap strip around center of folded piece, scrunching to form a bow. Press on top of cupcake, seam side down. Repeat.

My first look is pretty casual with a simple T-shirt, funky necklace, and fringe wedges. I would wear this out shopping or on a lunch date with girlfriends.
1. Shirt- Urban Outfitters
2. Skirt- Spotted Moth
3. Bag- Spotted Moth
4. Shoes- Jeffrey Campbell
5. Necklace- Found somewhere in Portland, Oregon.
The second look is a bit more dressed up. In retrospect, I probably should have chosen a different blouse because the ruffles in the front of this one aren't exactly discreet tucked into the skirt. It makes me look like I have somewhat of a food baby... a lumpy food baby. I also could have just untucked it, which still would have looked nice belted. But I didn't, so you just have to deal with the bunchiness, ladies and gentlemen.
1. Shirt- Forever 21
2. Belt- H&M
3. Bracelet- Forever 21
4. Skirt- Spotted Moth
5. Shoes- Steve Madden
6. Earrings- Spotted Moth
I can think of about a million more ways to style this fabulous skirt and it is so comfortable I could just live in it.
How would you wear it?

What you'll need:
3. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
4. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (We like Bragg Organic)
5. Your lovely face!
Mix equal parts clay and vinegar in the bowl and stir:
Soon you'll achieve that nice, gooey texture and you can smooth it over your face. The mask will begin to dry quickly so try to spread a thick layer evenly and all at once (I did it a little thin in some areas and when I tried to add more a minute later it got real chunky).
Viola! Note the awkward pursed lips-- it's not easy to smirk when your face is experiencing mild paralysis. A few minutes in, things started to get exciting. See, I didn't believe the back of the jar when it said "FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE!" perhaps because I didn't want to-- call me crazy but I find the thought of my face pulsating rather alarming. But suddenly, it was. I felt a subtle twitch in my nose and something like hundreds of tiny rubber-bands gently snapping against my skin. It kept pulling tighter and tighter and after about 5 minutes the only function my face retained was the ability to blink. The directions recommend to leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes for delicate skin and 15-20 for normal skin. I rinsed it off after 10 to be safe, plus it was starting to feel so tight that I worried I was going to end up looking like this:
Alas, I did not. But my pores were completely cleansed and noticeably refined. My skin was a little rosy in some spots but didn't stay that way for long. Overall it was a fun experiment with a positive end result. I reckon it's not often that the Aztecs share their secrets, so I say you all get in on this one!

Christina: How long have you been interested in photography?
Maile: I've been doing photography since I got my first digital camera at 15 years old. I really started to get serious with it as a senior in high school though.
C: What inspires you?
M: I'm inspired by nature. I love the sea, especially. I love old things and little bits of history. I'm the weirdo who sits there wonders how old each grain of sand is.
C: What are your favorite things to take pictures of?
M: I love taking pictures of girls in natural settings. Always with natural light. I've always taken pictures in the evening, but I'm learning to love the morning light as well.
C: Any hobbies besides photography?
M: My hobbies include pressing leaves and flowers and gardening when I have the time. I also like to collect sea glass, shells and rocks.
C: How would you describe your personal style?
M: My personal style is really simple. I don't wear a lot of jewelry or accessorize very much. The majority of my closet is composed of dresses.
C: What are your favorite Spotted Moth items?

It's hard to find the will to be stylish when it's 100 degrees out, isn't it? After all, you can't even put on makeup because it's just going to sweat off mid-application. So why bother with a cute outfit when it's going to stick to your back and make you feel even more uncomfortable?
But being chic in summer isn't impossible. The solution? Wearing something light-as-air. Here's 5 perfect dresses for when you just don't feel like getting dressed:
These are our favorites because they're sleeveless, short, and a little loose. They'll make you forget you're wearing anything at all until people stop to tell you how great you look. And now you're not sweating- you're glowing.
