What are some of your go-to pieces for staying cool in the summer while looking work appropriate?

M: Dresses carry me through these hot Las Vegas summers! I’m all about a fun feminine print with color. I love the duality of either wearing a bold dress with simple shoes and accessories with or wearing a beautiful basic dress and pulling it together with more statement accents!

What are some of your can’t-live-without accessories this season?

M: Year-round, I cannot live without sunglasses!  I love how the right pair can completely bring your outfit together. Whether it’s a fun and brightly colored pair for a fun day at the beach/pool or a more classic, put-together pair--- sunglasses are my absolute favorite accessories!

Describe your perfect day-to-night ensemble.

M: My perfect day-to-night outfit will always consist of a nice pair of dark denim with a basic top, which can then be dressed up with jewelry and beautiful shoes for the evening.
