The Jolie-Pitt clan is seriously going to rule the world in about 15 years. Their small army of six is too cute for words and they each have their own personal style (or so it seems). I don’t even have as good of style as these 6-year olds!

Jersey Shore season 2 starts tonight, and since the Guido/Guidette craze has been so successful, we decided to change our style up here in the Tog + Porter office!

Sanctuary’s Olivia Vest was featured in In Style! Sanctuary is one of the vendors that we work with and we are excited they are getting the attention they deserve!

Fashion Captive, a blogger that we like to read, is doing a closet challenge! We think this is a great idea, because so many of us get caught up in wearing the same four or five outfits. My rule: If I haven’t worn it in 8 months – toss it!

Joe’s Jeans, one of our go-to denim vendors, is getting some attention from ABC Family’s new hit show Pretty Little Liars (yes, I watch it!) We just love these photos, they are stunning.

One of my favorite things about summer is that I finally have the down time to read for pleasure. No more textbooks, no more online readings, just me and a good book. This summer (well now that I am officially a college graduate I guess I can read whenever, but anyways…) I have compiled a list of books that I want to read.

1. Eat Pray Love

by Elizabeth Gilbert

I have already tried reading this book, however I only got about a third into it before school started back up. So, the other day I picked it up in hopes of reading it before the movie comes out (starring the ever-fabulous Julia Roberts). I love that this book is about self-indulgence and desire.

2. Water for Elephants

by Sara Gruen

Again, I have heard about this book before but what really made me want to read it is that they are filming the movie right now. Okay, what really truly made me want to read it is that RPattz is going to be in it, and let’s be honest, I am only 22-years-old so I am allowed to be on the RPattz train…

3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I have heard really amazing stuff about this book (which is the first book in a trilogy) so I picked it up the other day. Unfortunately it was hard to get into so I put it down and replaced it with Eat Pray Love (I figure I should read it first since I am on a deadline…). BUT I fully intend on picking it up again and powering through the somewhat slow beginning.

4. The third book in The Hunger Games series

The Hunger Games is a series that I began reading a little less than a year ago. I could ramble about it for hours, because it is a really good story, but I won’t go there now. Anyways the third and final book in the trilogy comes out in August and I CANNOT wait! I even have a little countdown ticker on my computer for it (NERD, I know), and i am contemplating rereading the first two books in preparation.

So, what books are on YOUR summer reading list? The best beach/pool accessory is a good book (and some SPF!)

The best summer jewelry is colorful. Bright hues look great with just about anything, more brights or blacks or neutrals.

Here are some of my favorite jewelery accessories of the moment:

Sequin Wave Enamel Bangles

How fun are these? I love the color combinations.

Nordstrom 'Treasure Pendants - Wish' Necklace

I was recently watching The Bachelorette (yes, I admit it) and the girl, Ali, had a really cute gold necklace with a turquoise stone. Well, I got obsessed with it and went on an online rampage to find something similar. This is the closest I got – it’s not the same but I love this necklace.

Skagen Leather Strap Watch

This watch comes in a ton of different colors and would look great on its own or stacked with a bunch of bracelets.

Arielle Collection Enamel Dome Ring

Big rings are always fun and a good conversation piece. I love this one!

Kate Spade Ultra Thin Idiom Bangle

These bracelets are more of an investment really… You can mix and match them with anything.

Now go get to playing with some more outrageous colors!

I have a new obsession (I define “obsession” as I have recently purchased more than one of this particular thing). Summer is finally here in Eugene, Oregon and that means we need to dress the part. Today I purchased my second fedora in a week… (uh oh this is a bad sign). But the truth is that summer hats are awesome for a handful of reasons. Here are a few.

1. They shade your face from damaging UV rays

I don’t know about you, but I do not want to be 30 and have wrinkles and crows feet all over my face. Hats are the perfect solution.

2. Hat = You don’t have to wash or style your hair

Hats can cover up your messy hair. Sometimes it is just too hot out to blow dry your hair, throw on a had and you’re done, Voila!

3. Hats just make you look cool

Have you ever noticed that people wearing hats look cooler? I don’t know why that is but it is a proven fact. Google it. Anyways a hat is the perfect way to give you that beachy, chill vibe.

Nordstrom Grosgrain Border Straw Fedora

The hardest part about wearing hats is the way you feel in them. Most people feel like they just don’t look good in hats, but that is just because you aren’t used to them. Rock them with confidence, everyone looking at you is probably thinking “I wish I looked good in hats!”

William Rast Scarlet Short

When the summer sun emerges, so do shorter dresses, short sleeve tops and, of course…shorts. Cut-off shorts are all the rage this sunny season, and although they’re not necessarily new to our warm weather wardrobe, they definitely are improved. Both sassy and (acceptably) trashy, cut-offs are perfect for an evening cocktail BBQ bash or a night out with the gals and your five inch platforms.

Paige Jimmy Jimmy Short Sardinia

Paige and William Rast’s version of the summer short is flattering and fashionable without being too form-fitting (not to mention fabulous, just to make that alliteration even more fantastic). Match them with a sweet pair of flats or heels, throw on a cute tank, and hit the boardwalk (or sidewalk) in style.
