Rue Horoscopes: July

Get a glimpse into your stylish future – minus the crystal ball

horoscopes

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Cancer
Overstaying your welcome? No one wants that. Luckily, there’s an antidote: presents. Whether it’s a dinner party where you linger into the wee hours or a (very) long weekend at a friend’s, they’ll be so thrilled with a trinket from your well-stocked gift closet they won’t even notice.

Leo
Admit it – you think you’re as close to royalty as they come (it’s okay, we won’t tell). So why not decorate like it? Think over-the-top plushness, ornate chandeliers, and luxe fabrics at every turn. Just avoid going for the whole crown look… trust us.

Virgo
Forget introspection for the time being. Right now is all about analyzing and perfecting what your living room says about you. Ditch that faux wood coffee table, mix in greys and golds, and curate your own gallery for one serious accent wall.

Libra
No worries – you’re a little indecisive, and that’s okay. There’s a way to put that “skill” to good use at home. If you can’t decide between motifs (to go with boho-style floor pillows or modern leather chairs?), switch it up every season. Problem solved.

Scorpio
Believe it or not, people don’t want to hear you bragging about your gorgeous new patio furniture or those oh-so-perfect serving pieces. So throw a summer soiree – complete with twinkle lights and all kinds of tapas – and let the compliments flow naturally.

Sagittarius
Stop. Just stop. Worrying about the inevitable onslaught of fall doesn’t do any good. Instead, embrace the present by lounging on the beach from dawn to dusk. Round up that colorful folding chair, a carry-friendly grill, and a good crowd. And remember a sweater for the bonfire.

Rue Horoscopes: June

Get a glimpse into your stylish future – minus the crystal ball

horoscopes

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Gemini
Running full speed ahead all the time has its perks (say it with us: multitasking). But you know what’s better? Crazy-soft pajamas, breakfast in bed, and a full season of Girls on demand. Pretty sure that’s worth slowing down for.

Cancer
Okay – we’ve all wanted to cancel every plan on the social calendar. Here’s how to get out of that funk: treat yourself to that fit-and-flare dress you’ve been eyeing, then get a blowout (or a haircut). You’ll be showing off your updated look to your newly adoring public in no time.

Leo
What’s the best way to show someone you care? Give them a few of their favorite things. Grab something comforting (like a beyond-soft throw) and a stack of their guilty-pleasure glossies, then clear your schedule to join in on the vegging out.

Virgo
It happens to the best of us: closet boredom. And the best way to treat this style-crushing condition starts with the basics. Update those white tees, go-to jeans, and LBDs, then get started on the accessories.

Libra
You’re a giver. But it’s okay to let other people do things for you sometimes. So hit the spa and totally unwind while those magician-style massage therapists work their magic on your knotted shoulders. Mission accomplished.

It’s a Blogger’s World (We Just Live in It)

Our top 4 picks of the week

 
bloggers

1. j’adore couture
We’ll be taking our early-morning (and late-morning, and early-afternoon…) coffee with a hefty dose of pretty stacked rings now, thankyouverymuch.

2. Fashion Chalet
When a girl can pull off riding pants, neon, and a sequinny clutch – while walking around in the woods – we like her. Instantly.

3. allie wears
Reason to add more stripes and caged sandals to our arsenal immediately. (As if we needed one.)

4. seersucker + saddles
Summer preppy. Slightly glam. If drinking lemonade on the front porch of a Nantucket beach house were a blog, this would be it.

The Denim Hem Guide: Perfecting the Cuff & Roll

You’ve snagged a new pair of skinnies. Worn them four days this week. Then realized people were starting to catch on. Solution? Cuff or roll them. New pair of jeans, in a flash (especially when paired with new shoes).

Here’s how to perfect the cuff and roll, what to pair each with, and more.

It’s a Blogger’s World (We Just Live in It)

Our top 4 picks of the week

bloggers

1. Girls Off Fifth
NYC-steeped style, with a side of gold-dipped bull skulls. Don’t ask, just go.

2. What Katie Ate
What Katie ate, in all its gorgeously photographed glory. Seriously too pretty to eat.

3. OnTheRacks
A master at layering the unexpected, this San Fran transplant has us taking a bold new look at our closets.

4. Carrots ‘N’ Cake
Adore Tina’s food and fitness inspiration – and the simple fact that she calls Boston home. (Marylou’s Coffee abounds.)

Rue Horoscopes: May

Get a glimpse into your stylish future – minus the crystal ball

horoscopes

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Taurus
Big changes are on the horizon. Translation? Your shoe collection is about to get a major overhaul. Toss those worn-in sandals from last year (along with the excuses) and restock with one pair for every spring trend – bold stripes and ankle straps included.

Gemini
Quit being apprehensive about rocking a cutout one-piece at the beach this season and take the plunge. Not only will you set the crazy-stylish tone among your own posse, you’ll take the entire ocean by storm.

Cancer
The quickest way to make some changes? Step out of that comfort-zone hibernation and into a refreshingly new experience (three-day-long spa retreats totally count).

Leo
Don’t be thrown by recent drama. Instead, surround yourself with things that make you incandescently happy, like brand new strappy wedges, those first few drinks on a patio, and froyo. Lots of froyo.

Virgo
If there’s one thing you can count on for spring, it’s (what feels like) a completely new wardrobe. And with certainty comes the ability to plan. Puerto Rico, here you come – umbrella-clad cocktails are calling.

Libra
There’s a secret behind that silver lining everyone’s been talking about (girl-crush Jennifer Lawrence not included). It comes in the form of metallic, buttery leather accessories. Feeling more positive yet?

Your Momma’s Got Style

Prove it for a chance to have her featured on our login page

Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.
