As I’ve said several times, transitioning into fall is almost impossible in Miami with this 90 degree weather. Little slip dresses like this make it seamless. Grab a light, flowy dress in a fall color, add some booties and you’ve got a chic fall look you won’t die of a heat stroke in.

Texas Tux with a Twist.

A Texas Tux is essentially a denim on denim outfit. And, as you can see, there is a million different ways to channel this look. My #1 recommendation is the denims should never be of the same shade. You want to avoid looking like a cowboy (trust me.)

Here I did acid wash overalls with a darker wash denim shirt but you could do darker overalls with an acid wash denim shirt OR dark overalls with a light wash denim shirt…really, the possibilities are endless!

I hope all of you test out the Texas Tux! It’s easy when you’re not sure what to wear. ;)

90’s Inspired.

Crop tops and baby doll dresses with chokers and dark lipstick – 90’s are in. And, I love it! In this outfit, I felt like Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It’s easy to create fun and edgy outfits like these. Don’t be afraid to pair booties with any flowy dress! Plus, this amazing choker is a great way to top off any 90’s inspired outfit.

“Fall” in Miami.

In Miami, It really is hot all year round. So when it’s time to transition into fall, it’s more difficult for us. We could wear long sleeves and boots but we’d just go into cardiac arrest and die of a heat stroke. My best advice for us Miami-ans is to try to make a summery piece work for fall. Take this tropical print romper. Usually for the summer, you’d add a bright shoe & a lot of color. Just tone it down, add black sandals or boots and some cool silver jewlery and it’s instantly a chic & cool fall outfit.

 

Positively Radiant.

aveen15Clear skin is so important! It’s also very important to take care of your skin so I decided to share with you my beauty/cleansing routine. I usually do this routine before I go to bed every night, not in the morning, because I come home from work or wherever I’ve been and I feel like I need to wipe away all the debris from the day.aveeno9aveen2 aveeno1 First, I wipe away all my makeup using the Aveeno make-up remover wipes. Cleaning your eye make-up thoroughly is one of the most important parts. Going to sleep with eyeliner and mascara residue is bad for your hair follicles and can cause eyelash loss and you know how hard we girls work for full and long looking lashes! Plus, these wipes smell amazing so you’ll fall right to sleep with this delicious scent.aveeno8aveeno14aveeno3Next, I wash my face with the daily brightening cleansing wash. This helps brighten your skin and even tone. I make sure to wash my face very well, including my neck, and even let it sit on my face for a few seconds. Then, of course, rinse! The scrub is also great but since I had a tan (haha) i didn’t want to scrub my hard-worked color away! My favorite part about this collection is that these pieces have that “bronzer glitter” that leaves you with a natural glow.aveeno10

Just apply a small amount to where you need even your skin tone and get rid of dark spots.aveeno6aveeno5 aveeno7 Lastly, I moisturize. I only recommend this for people who have dry skin. Washing my face dries my skin immensely so I ALWAYS have to moisturize after. If you have oily skin, you shouldn’t need to use a moisturizer. This is a great daily moisturizer though because it has SPF and adds that bronzer glow.aveeno11 aveeno13Another of my two favorite products are the body wash and lotion. They smell delicious and leave your skin silky smooth.

All these products are available at your local drugstores or super markets. Trust me, you’ll love them and feel POSITIVELY RADIANT!

Strapless Jumpsuit with a Twist.

Like most girls are self conscious about their body, I am self conscious about being skinny. Some things just don’t fit me right because of my lack of curves. I usually NEVER wear strapless pieces because they really make me look extremely thin, which I hate. SO I always try and improvise because there’s always going to be those pieces you just have to have.

I absolutely love this jumpsuit from BLUSH. It is so comfortable, chic and it has pockets (which is always a plus.) Since it was strapless, I decided to add the mesh top to be able to cover up the area I don’t feel great about. I loved that you could still see the print through the top and it actually added a great touch. The jumpsuit was also very long (especially for a girl standing at a mere 5’2) so I tied it at the hem. This helped with my boho-arabian-vibe.

I’m glad I was able to wear this jumpsuit and reinvent the outfit into something that made me feel comfortable. So, don’t hesitate from trying something outside of your comfort zone but, when in doubt, change up the outfit until it suits you best!

Cool-lottes.

Norm-core is the latest craze. We’re going back to basics and I absolutely love this trend! Especially with pieces like these. I have fallen in love with culottes. I thought I wouldn’t be able to pull them off because of my petite 5’2 frame but I did it anyways! I know I shouldn’t have worn an ankle bootie style heel because that also makes you look shorter but I decided to embrace my smallness.

If you live in the MIami area and you’re looking for something new and fresh with great prices for those must-have staples you NEED in your closet, look no further. Market is that place. With it’s crisp clean feel, this store is beautifully curated and the girls are so helpful! Make sure to stop by this new gem in South Miami.
