Barbie Pink

C'mon, who doesn't absolutely love a Barbie moment in 2020? Even if pink hues aren't your style, there's no denying that the pink aesthetic is taking over the world - online and off. One way to exude femininity this season is a monochromatic pink look, with hints of silver or gold to break it up. The Kyle Midi is the perfect length and fabric for summer days that lead into summer nights. Along with this show-stopping dress, Eclectic Bella is a go-to for effortless street style and comfort. Each collection is curated with quality and price in mind.

Lemonade Yellow

If you've been dying to recreate a look similar to Beyonce's Lemonade, look no further. The Naya Robe and Ekon Pants from Andrea Iyamah scream 'summertime fine!'. The super long pants help to elongate your legs, with a waist tie to give you more control. Whether you have a smaller waist, fuller hips, or a longer torso; these pants accentuate any body shape. The chiffon robe with exaggerated sleeves elevates this luxurious look.

Money Green

While I gravitate towards any hue of green, this green is perfect for the summer season. Lively and energetic, this dress from Lilly's Kloset hugs every curve perfectly. The draped neckline is ideal for any size bust. The asymmetrical hemline and mid-section ruching help to create the most delicious silhouette. The lightweight fabric is ideal for summer, with a flirty slip underneath to facilitate the beautiful draping.

Oh, hello hunty! Red is the color of romance and we all need something extra for summer nights. Getting date-night ready is easy with this adorable look from Cushnie. The plunging neckline and low back create a romantic and flirty vibe; the high slit exudes sexiness and a bit of mystery. Located in Targets across the country, Cushnie constantly has the cutest and most size-inclusive dresses.

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
