Smarter Style: Shine, Baby, Shine!

Trend alert! Sequins have made an official come-back recently. I'm loving all the shimmery tops, skirts, and even kid's shirts and summer dresses I'm seeing. Here's one site with some super cute options: http://www.jcrew.com/girls_feature/welovesequins.jsp?intcmp=cc_p5_sequins

Of course, that's the not the only way to add some shine to your summer look. Jeweled open-toed shoes are hip and flirty, too, like these tan and turquoise sandals, which won't break the bank and bring out a great pedicure really nicely: http://www.zappos.com/roper-jeweled-sandal-tan. Jeweled adhesives, like these http://www.kmart.com/doodlebug-adhesive-jewels-45-pkg-ladybug/p-021V004896820000P?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=G1, are a fun and fast way to add some shine to anything you wish, from a boring tote, to kids' shades or shirts or shoes.

Another fabulous and easy way to shine this season is by choosing some high-gloss cosmetics for your nails, lips and even hair. I love the bright, dazzling look of products like these http://www.sephora.com/rock-candy-nail-glaze-P378028?skuId=1492727 or these http://www.sephora.com/gloss-in-love-P379984?skuId=1530856. You can even add some gloss to your cheeks with a products like cheek gelee! Check it out: http://www.sephora.com/coconut-waterproof-cheek-gelee-P379101

Of course, a simple dab of golden or glittery eye shadow or blush will do the trick too: http://www.kmart.com/milani-blush-baked-powder-luminoso-05-0.12-oz/p-015VA53268012P?prdNo=8&blockNo=8&blockType=G8 and here http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_015B040806110001P are some nice options. Just be sure to find the right shade for your skin tone.

How do you add some shine to your summer look?

 I like lots of bling...well not over the top, but just a touch or two. I've added jewels to old sandals that make them look new.
