Who doesn't love putting on a cute mini dress and heels and flaunt what their mama gave them? The thing is, mini dresses for night are usually quite tight, skimpy and wildy inappropriate for day wear. Sunny days, however, do call for less fabric on a daily basis and while baring the girls for all to see in broad day light may send a wrong message, showing off your gams is a classier way to show a little sex appeal and stay cool. Mini dresses are totally wearable during the day, all you need to do is make a few minor style changes to make it sunshine ready. Look for a more fluid drape and looser silhouette, sweet (think floral or polka dot) patterns, and brighter, lighter colors. Heels are always hot, but for height, try pairing it with wedges for a more daytime vibe. Or throw on a pair of flats or flat sandals for a stylishly casual feel.

It's time to spice things up at home, and not just in the bedroom either! While we would all love to be jet-setters and fly off to exotic places halfway across the world, it is not a possibility for many of us due to money, time or both. Although the mysticism of far away lands may be enticing, but not quite within reach at the moment, these sumptuous luxuries and richly saturated materials can be brought back and enjoyed in your own home. With ethnic African and safari-inspired prints that make your living area feel like a trip to the savannah, richly saturated and beautifully decorated rugs and home accents that make you feel like you're laying back in a Persian palace, and the minimalist sophistication of Asian-inspired pieces that help give you a peaceful and meditative state, you can take a trip around the world in the comfort of your own home.
