Tan or neutral-colored heels will make your legs look longer. Plus, they are super-cute year-round.

You don’t have to enroll in a fancy school or camp to help your kids learn over the summer. “The best thing parents can do for their kids is to incorporate learning in a fun way,” says Marlene Caroselli, who has a doctorate in education.
Take advantage of the long summer days (and nights) by taking nature walks with your kids and practicing the multiplication tables along the way. Or, let your child be the top chef for dinner and help you measure out the ingredients. Even an old-fashioned lemonade stand will help him master his knowledge of dollars and cents.
A visit to the museum is also a fab learning opportunity for your child as she/he reads the map to decide which exhibits you’ll see first. And be sure to ask your children to describe (in both English and Español!) what they are seeing and feeling during the activities. It will boost their confidence and language skills, and you’ll get to spend some much-needed quality time with your kids as they learn.
