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 past Friday I had the awesome opportunity to host another Fashion Happy Hour. This one was a little different. Instead of local vendors selling their clothing, bloggers got together and sold items from their closet for charity. We raised over $1,000 for Style Saves. Style Saves raises funds through fashion focused events in order to provide underprivileged students with clothing, shoes, and accessories. I also donated everything I didn’t sell to Style Saves. I was so excited to be able to be a part of such an amazing event!
I wore this outfit to the event. I lucky enough to be a brand ambassador for Umgee! They NEVER disappoint. 🙂 Love the colors, print and flowy feel. The shorts also went perfectly paired with my new MissGuided booties. You HAVE to go check out their new shoe collection. It’s affordable and oh so chic. Stay tuned because there’s more goodies from their shoeseum!
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. 😉
Summer is coming to an end and the bright colors and fun outfits do too. This may be my last summery outfit post because I am ready for fall! Even though it never gets cold here in Miami (boo), I transition my wardrobe with darker colors and different fabrics.
I am currently obsessed with oversized pearls. I found this amazing choker for a steal! ($5!!!!!) Unfortunately, it sold out pretty quickly. I found a similar one for you guys for just a little more expensive, but it’s definitely worth it! It’s an amazing statement piece that’ll take you through every season. Go for it. 🙂
Another hot day called for a semi-naked outfit. The day started at Soho Beach House for a brunch hosted by ASOS and then went on to the Boulan for a pool party hosted by WildFox. ASOS had a delicious spread, yummy cocktails and some awesome clothing. A designer was showcasing her collection that will be coming to ASOS.com in November. Chock full of neoprene pieces and floral fun-ness, I was completely in love with the line. (Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was having too much fun at the event!!) The WildFox pool party was also a blast! Sweat and all. Free burgers and uber discounted clothing made for an awesome event.
I chose this fun romper because I loved the gold detailing on the straps as well as the airy feel to it. Black and white is always the best way to go because accessorizing becomes so much easier! I was able to do some fun mirrored sunglasses as well as a neon clutch.
By the way, for those who always have a problem finding a bra to wear for low back or backless items, this is the bra for you! I. Am. In. Love. It gives you a lift and looks really cute doing it. It’s also available in a ton of colors. I recommend every girl tries this bra!
