Does your summer style lack sizzle?

Well grab your wine spritzer and take a good long sip. Because really, nothing could be simpler. To add pizzazz to your wardrobe, all you need to do is go shopping with YLF in mind!

Copy Angie’s ensembles (casual linen; ultra casual blue and white; pink and olive; ink, brown, grey, black; white sneakers.)

Join Janet (and Jackie) in singing the blues, with the GAP’s camo BF shorts.

Share Shevia’s excitement about some black&white brogues…or pointy toed ankle straps with heels. Boyish, feminine -- it's all good! (Extra points for cognac accents...).

Sport a sack-like shirtdress — like Angie!

Let it shine…like texstyle and Beth. (What would I ever have done without my pewter belt and Bernia gladiators this summer???)

Or sashay along in sarong shorts, like Janet.

Let the cat out of the bag, like Rae, Mary, and Vicki.

Apply Angie’s favoured fix — add white! Snip with your scissors to make your jeans the length you’d like. (Janet did that, too....)

In fact, make it a column of white! Shannon & Ornella & Elizabeth will show you how.

While you're at it, join the J. Crew linen tee and linen sweater brigade, along with Gaylene, Sveta, Elizabeth, Tanya, Inge -- and many more.

Vivify like Viva and Angie with a J. Crew tux shirt (best shirt ever).

Go “tubing” — along with Shannon, Mo, Ms. KK, MaryK, Sveta, Tanya, Diana, Joy, abc, and who knows how many other rabid VC fans! (Do it in white sneakers for an extra jolt of 2014.) Question: was there every a skirt that worked so well for so many body types and so many different styles? I seriously doubt it.

Cruise along in J. Crew linen pants...

Follow Sveta's scintillating lead. When all your shopping is done, yes, ALL of it -- shop once more at the GAP’s 30% off sale and snap up the grey linen trousers. Because two new pairs of linen J. Crew pants are just not enough!!

There you have it. 18 ways....and make you want to hug your closet.

If you read this far, thanks for indulging me. This is the first year in my life when I have actually ENJOYED getting dressed and ENJOYED shopping in the summer. (Maybe even a little too much, LOL.)

And this is my way of saying THANK YOU!!!

If my fall closet is even half as much fun, it's going to be an amazing season!
