Ok, lets all just admit it...you know it's not the greatest for you but, you can't wait to get your glow on this summer! Before you start sunning this summer, there are a few summer sun essentials you should know about. Elta MD Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 is the best facial SPF you will ever encounter. It contains 9% of transparent zinc oxide, is filled with antioxidants, glides on smoothly and the best part...it does not leave your skin feeling greasy. Want a little added help when re-applying throughout the day? Murad Essential C Sun Balm is the answer. It is a moisturizing sun balm stick with great effect against the sun, perfect for cheeks and bridge of your nose. Don't forget your lips and continuously apply a lip balm containing SPF. Our fave...Australian Gold Lip Balm - SPF 30, it provides sunscreen protection while natural Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and Jojoba soften the skin. Keep your eyes safe with a pair of shades...you can never go wrong with Ray Ban Aviators...always an accessory staple. Rehydrate your skin with Evian Mineral Water Spray. Last, but definitely not least, every Basically, Us girl needs a new pair of flips during the summer and Havaianas (stop in Stilettos to get a pair too!) are the way to go. They're fashionable, cushioned and come in tons of colors and designs. So lather on that sunscreen, throw on some shades and enjoy that summer sun!
After months of designing, gaining feedback and selling Basically, Us tees in my boutique...the brand has officially come to life. I couldn't be happier considering it's a brand that is near and dear to my heart; mainly because everything that comes from this brand is inspired by my group of girlfriends. The things we say, do and love is what drives Basically, Us.
My hope is that Basically, Us will only get bigger and better. Of course, this can only happen with the help of my girlfriends. You'll get to see how they would rock their fave Basically, Us tee. You'll read up on the hottest new restaurants they've tried or the latest and greatest beauty products they have discovered.

I am so thrilled to say that Basically, Us basic tees made a big appearance on the runway at last month's 4th Annual Fashion's Fight Against Cancer. The tees, styled with clothes from Beyond Boutique in Wicker Park and shoes from Stilettos, were a big hit! Each tee can be dressed up or down, depending on your style and mood. Wear your fave tee with slouchy sweatpants or rock it with your go-to skinny jeans and a leather jacket (Blank NYC-my new fave vegan leather line). Whatever your style, throw on a tee and #JoinOurWorld.
Check out all of our new styles that debuted on the runway here: Stilettos Boutique
The minute I met my group of girlfriends,my world changed. They inspire everything I do...the music I listen to, the clothes I wear, the places I hang out, and most importantly, the way I live life. Basically, Us tees are just that. They represent us.
Throw on a tee, #JoinOurWorld and get a feel for what it means to be Basically, Us.
Gladiator sandals are back this season in a big way. Some fashionistas have been brave enough to rock a pair all the way up to their knees. If you love to try new trends but have to modify them a bit, we've got the perfect gladiator for you. Alexander by Naughty Monkey is trendy, chic and comfortable. We love pairing them with a boho vibe to soften the harsh vibe gladiators tend to give off. Oh, did we mention they're only $74...such a deal! Especially compared to the designer style at $348. This sandal is a great way to bring one of this season's biggest trends to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
We love everything from Gypsy05 and think these gladiators look great with any of their styles. Here are a couple of our faves.
Keep jewels minimal, a few gold bangles and small gold necklace would do just the trick. Keep make-up neutral and you will be all set!
