    The Look: Kate Bosworth in Guess
    It's Thursday, which probably you've exhausted all your cute Monday-Wednesday outfits that you laid out on Sunday, and are just trying to leave the house in something that sort of matches. The trick: double denim. It's basically a mid-week fail safe. You know it matches, and you know you're going to look cool. Today I'm taking inspiration from Kate Bosworth's Guess outfit with some skinny cropped jeans and a light wash chambray shirt. 

    The Face: Aerin Lipstick in Winter
    OK, so wearing denim on denim can make you feel a bit like a dude, even when you have your skinny jeans on. Again, I'm taking a tip from Bosworth and pairing my Canadian tuxedo with a red lip. I love the lipsticks from Aerin because they go on creamy but actually stay on all day. That's a makeup victory!

    The News: Pharrell Launches Yet Another Line of T-Shirts for World Happiness Day
    March 20 is World Happiness Day--did you expect Pharrell to let a holiday with his hit song in the title go by without releasing a new project?! The tees are all black with a smiley face wearing "the hat" on front and happy slogans beneath. They'll be available at Billionaire Boys Club stores and online. 

    The Inspiration: Verushka in 1971
    Consider this the source material for Kate Bosworth's look. 

    The Song: "Jealous Guy" -- John Lennon
    Keeping with my 1971 vibe, here's a song I can't help sing along to by John Lennon.
