Today marks the end of my summer internship as a Style Guru; however, I had to save the icing on the cake for last! Today’s Fashionista is wearing what I would call the perfect summer look. She’s got the tribal print, neutrals, bold accessories and a timeless Louis Vuitton bag. In one look she has covered it all, while keeping it balanced and still staying true to her personal style. What really caught my attention is, without a doubt, her Moroccan inspired necklace. She bought it in Spain at a market, and the vibrant shades of bayside blue add a pop of color to her outfit.

How To: Get Andy’s tribal look simply by matching tribal shorts with a neutral top. It’s very important to keep your proportions balanced as bigger prints can make you look bigger while smaller prints will take off a few pounds! My number one rule when wearing shorts is to never show too much skin. Wearing cropped tops and low-waisted shorts will look trashy. I love the way today’s Fashionista is wearing loose shorts with a loose top, She tucked it in to accentuate her waist and avoid looking heavy. I recommend focusing on one statement jewelry piece, because if you wear crazy shoes, purse and jewelry you could look as if you were trying too hard. My summer internship might be over today, but you still have a couple of weeks to show off your summer wardrobe!
