As seen on Viva Luxury

Blogger Annabelle Fleur is all about the season’s ’70s looks. “I am literally obsessed with everything about this trend, from high-waisted flare jeans and platforms to oversized aviators and suede fringe,” she confesses. She’s also a reliable source for tips on how to keep this retro look fashion-forward. In these fabulous pics, Annabelle shows how sleek accessories like a light bangle and a delicate hand chain can balance the throwback flavor of flares and a tie front blouse. A chain strap bag brings in a timeless touch, while easy waves and glossy, not-too bright lips add a soft, natural quality. “I couldn’t resist adding a pair of oversized round sunglasses to the mix,” Annabelle adds, “but I honestly feel they enhance this look since the rest of my accessories are so clean and simple.”

Can't stop. Won't stop.

“You know those days where you’re on the go from the moment your feet hop out of bed?” asks Miami blogger Ria Michelle. Oh yeah, we’ve been there, so we’re loving her recent focus on a fun look that’ll transition from day to night with next to no effort required. The striped blazer adds a profesh layer that’s light enough for a hot summer day, plus some eye-grabbing pattern impact. Underneath it is a happy hour-friendly combination of cropped tank and flattering A-line skirt, and the whole look comes together with a day-or-night chain strap bag and cut-out heels. With just a moment to drop the jacket and maybe freshen her bright red lip, Ria’s got a classy-sexy outfit that’s ready for the town.

Sangria with fruit With porch season in full swing, we like the idea of whipping up a pitcher of sangria to share with your girls or your bae. It’s a super-easy move that’ll make your friends feel like you’ve come up with something special just for them. This recipe is summertime perfection – light, not too sweet, a little fizzy and full of seasonal flavors. With frozen fruit, the mixture stays cool without you having to lean too heavily on drink-diluting ice, and the fruit will soak up the sangria as it thaws – so yummy.

INGREDIENTS: 1 bottle crisp white wine like pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc 1/2 cantaloupe, balled or chopped into bite-sized pieces 1 cup white or red seedless grapes 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves 16 oz. ginger ale, chilled 1 lemon, thinly sliced

• Freeze the cantaloupe pieces and grapes until solid.

• Pour the wine into a large pitcher.

• Add frozen fruit and mint leaves.

• Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

• Remove from fridge, stir in ginger ale and top with lemon slices and a little ice.

• Serve it up with wine or rocks glasses.
