Summer is right around the corner, and I don't know about you, but my look was needing a major refresher. It's pretty easy to get stuck in the Winter rut, without even realizing it. While I'm all about keeping your life, wardrobe, and look simple - sometimes we need to mix things up a bit. So I've put together 5 tips that you can use to freshen up your look, without breaking the bank or losing your own personal style.

Tip 1. Mixing up your hairstyle
Curls are nothing new for me, I've always loved curling my hair. But ever since I chopped my hair off last year, I have favored a straighter style. Now that my hair is getting long again, I decided that I should mix things up. It's simple changes like this that give you a little bounce in your step (and your hair).

Tip 2. Change up your accessories
I am not someone who wears a lot of jewelry. And when I do wear jewelry, it's typically dainty and minimal. So I decided to switch things up by adding a bunch of layering pieces. From bangles, to necklaces, to rings. I went all out and it was so much fun to get back into that bohemian vibe, especially for Summer.

Tip 3. Change up your silhouette
I have always loved and the minimal, sack dresses I see all over Pinterest, but I haven't had a chance (or the desire to spend as much as they cost) to try them. When I found this similar dress for a steal, I knew it was my chance to give the look a shot. It was so fun to step away from the classic dress silhouette I would normally wear and go for something a bit closer to a style I wish I could wear.

Tip 4. Simplify your bag
For whatever reason, I become a hoarder during the winter. My purses always seem to fill up with receipts and junk much quicker than in the warmer months where I tend to travel light. So I emptied my purse, grabbed only the essentials, and stored them in this cute tote bag that is perfect for Summer!

Tip 5. Freshen up your smile
Smiles on, everyone! It's Summer and that means a fresh start. With the new, easy to share, Extra® Gum Spearmint, you can not only freshen up your own smile, but the smiles of all those around you. It's the perfect way to come out of your Winter shell and make some new friends, because the new durable and recycled packaging makes it easy to take your Extra® Gum Spearmint everywhere you go.

Sometimes it just takes a fresh perspective on things to make them feel new again. And remember to bring a little freshness to your life with the new Extra® 35-stick pack - found at the checkout line at Walmart.
