Summer has officially arrived…otherwise known as caftan season! Take cues from your favorite warm-weather destination – whether it’s your local beach or some faraway place like St. Tropez – and shop accordingly! Now is the time to be daring, so play with colors in every combination imaginable and layer on the accessories. Fashion rules are meant to be broken, right?!

Bright sunshine, salt and sand require a more natural approach to beauty. Instead of wearing winter’s heavy formulas and dark colors, get a “no makeup” makeup look with a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, beach hair and a bright lip. A sunburn is so not chic, so we will show you the newest, most innovative ways to tan safely and flawlessly. Sunscreen is nonnegotiable!

June is a month to embrace my constant obsession with anything and everything eco! We have tons of suggestions on deck from organic skincare and clothing to stylish buys for the home. We’re sure you’ll be hooked on these eco-friendly finds.

Last month was all about moms, but now it’s dad’s moment. As an eternal daddy’s girl and wife, Father’s Day is obviously one of my favorite holidays. If you’re stuck on what to get dad for his special day, my team and I have MAJ ideas in store; everything from fabulous monogrammed bathrobes to stylish golfing equipment.

One of the proudest moments of my career was becoming a member of the CFDA. I am beyond excited to attend the CFDA Awards again this year to celebrate emerging talent, which I value more than ever as a newer designer myself. My all time hero and friend, Tom Ford, will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award so it should be an amazing night to remember. I’ll be sure to post lots of glam photos on Instagram, so stay tuned!

Until next month, laugh, love and live glamorously!
