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.

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!

Palm tree prints have been on-trend for summer. They’re fun, colorful and easy to wear! They can take you on a tropical vacation or to a chic party. For a more subtle print like this one, make sure to add a pop of color! Make sure to try a palm tree print in your outfit before the season is over!
