I LOVE mixing prints! Checkered prints are super in for fall so it’s always fun to mix to mix two different versions of a similar print. But don’t forget my advice, when mixing prints, always make sure one bring is smaller or bigger than the other. This stops you from looking like a crazy lady!

This past Saturday, the always fabulous Refinery29 curated a fun little shopping block in the middle of Dadeland Mall. There were local boutiques, a MAC station and a cool little DIY station. It was a great place to hang out with my fellow blogger babes. I even got featured on Refinery29.com! (YAY)

I absolutely love this cool floral sweater from Forever 21. It’s thin so it’s perfect for layering in Miami. Plus, my favorite necklace right now – it was the perfect edgy outfit for a daytime event. Layering can easily be done in Miami! Just try light layers or pairing those layers with shorts.

‘Little Black Boots’ Inspired.

Jill Wallace, blogger of Little Black Boots, has the best bohemian, free-spirited and effortless style. While I sound very mean girls, I saw her wearing a peasant blouse and an overall dress, so I had to wear a peasant blouse and overall dress. Of course, I added my little flair. 🙂 Plus, I had to top it off with little black boots.

This outfit truly made me feel like it was finally fall! I love prints but I especially love leopard for fall. Where it’s a little chillier, feel free to wear a cute sweater and tights under an overall dress like this. We’re still hitting the high 80’s here in Miami, so this is the best I could do (and I was still sweating!) Can’t wait till it gets colder here so I can definitely try this outfit with a sweater.

Wrap It Up.

This outfit is the perfect transitional outfit for fall in Miami. Bright colors are in for fall so adding a bright colored chiffon scarf to a neutral outfit will add the pop of color that you need! Have fun with scarves this season! Try different styles and different prints. I recommend YouTube for finding cool techniques to wrap a scarf. I absolutely love this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs40P0dasGU. It helps you turn your scarf into a vest!! So cool. 🙂

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.
