Blu Dot Paramount Two Piece Sectionals by: Blu Dot furniture -
Summer, is about minimalism: minimal clothing, minimal responsibility, and minimal expenses! While summer condones wearing the same thing twice, you'll still want a different outfit for every late-night beach and bonfire party -- and if you're looking for deals, you're in good hands this season! Summer get-ups are as easy as slipping on a striped strapless dress or pairing some hot, baby biker shorts under a tunic! Of course, the hotter it gets, the less material necessary, so a complete look can usually be fulfilled with just one piece. Ditch the cute day-time cover-ups that are paired with sandals and a sunhat and opt for your evening bag and a nice pair of heels and you're ready to hit the nighttime summer scene! At this point in summer's prime, some retailers are already offering their floor-clearing deals on some prime summer going-out pieces, but the airy, inexpensive ensembles are hot enough to take care of your club cover charge and even entice on-lookers to gift your drinks! Take a peek at some seasonable, reasonably priced wardrobe additions for your summer nights!

As much as I like the more edgy take on fashion these days, it's all about comfort and relaxation for me when it comes to my home. So while I may don some leather leggings and fingerless gloves, I want to be able to return home and breathe a sigh of relief, curl up and be comfortable. Overstuffed furniture, wicker accents and countryside-inspired prints and florals are reminiscent of a cozy house and home style. So while mom can't be there everyday whipping up her famous chicken noodle soup and green bean casserole, you can add a few things around the house that give you that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Check out the slideshow for some easy ideas on how to make your living space country chic and comfortable!
