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.

When I saw this top, I knew I had to have it! I am definitely a working-class person working with class. 😉 Graphic tees are so much and so easy to wear! They add a sort of edge to an outfit and can easily be dressed up or down. For example, pair this top with a mini skirt and some cool booties and you’re ready to take on the night! Find a cool graphic tee that describes you.

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. 🙂

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.

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.
