I was wondering if you knew of any places that have cute, dressy cardigans? —My
Forever 21's "luxe" line Twelve by Twelve consistently offers the most fashion-forward cardigans by using unique colors, prints and shapes plus pretty details like lace, fancy buttons and contrasting trim. The dip-dye cardigan shown here is just $29 and also comes in coral.
I will be heading to the lake this summer and would love to find the perfect sarong that will go with several of my bathing suits. … Do you have any recommendations? —emy

I would love some nude sandals that are affordable, preferably under $20.00. —Nicole
For tan, beige, taupe, light brown or nude sandals around $20, check out Charlotte Russe. This jeweled gladiator flat ($18.99) is perfect for casual occasions, while these braided rope wedges ($22.99) should carry you through dressier occasions.

love the style of that cardigan, just not the tie dye
I've found some really cute short-sleeved, dressy-enough-for-work cardigans at several places this spring. My local TJMaxx for one, the Willi Smith line. Ann Taylor Loft (love the Loft!!) has had some cute ones. And recently found my new favorite at Kohls. I love to wear it over a lace-trimmed cami and with a black patent waist-belt overtop. There's just something about a short-sleeved cardigan that's work-appropriate, but very sassy and summery. It avoids entering "prim and prissy" territory, which long-sleeved or 3/4 sleeve cardigans frequently border on.
Those braided rope wedges are to die for! I have a similar Michael Kors pair, but these are a steal at only $22.99.
