So it’s the beginning of the week, let’s start off right…with a good hair day!

When I take the time to take care of my hair, I always feel put-together, as if i’m presenting the best version of myself. Something so simple gives me a sense of empowerment. When I know I look my best, I know I am projecting confidence and poise. Hair is universal, it is by no means just a lady thing, women might don more hair but it is still the most noticeable accessory on a man as well, why not make it a power tool. Win-win if you ask me, healthy hair and a confident swag…..game on! The only issue is, I don’t know how to do hair the way I like it but there is a solution for that…

Hello Loves,

On my previous post here, I spoke about working with the lifestyle photographer Shaun Honda and mentioned our project together at the Flower Market in Downtown Los Angeles.

Summer Black

As the sun shines brighter and the days get longer I wanted to show you that in fact you CAN wear black in the summer. Don’t shy away from wearing black, but take it from me, black always works. If the spring/summer collections are anything to go by, from Saint Laurent to Céline, black is the Smart is Sexy‘s new summer day to night outfit. With black, love it, you don’t have to take that last piece of jewelry off before you go out at night or you don’t have to do too much with your hair or makeup. You never have to worry too much about working it too hard. I like to think like this; a Smart is Sexy girl knows that the sexy isn’t in the clothes, hair or makeup but in the attitude and the intelligence of picking the right articles and being done with it. I’ll show you, currently i’m loving this black BCBG lace jumper that just makes my life beautiful and simple all in one ….
