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.
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.
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!
I got the great opportunity to collab with WET Swimwear during Swim Week. They hosted an amazing pool party at the Delano to bring Swim Week to an end. Unfortunately, due to pure exhaustion, I was not able to make it to the pool party. Swim Week really takes the life out of you! All day events in the scorching heat, not to mention the heels, are killer. (Major #blogger probz.) Instead, I decided to shoot this adorable little number at the beach.
I absolutely LOVED this bathing suit. It gives you support as well as a little lift (for us flatter chested girls.) This bathing suit gave me confidence and it was super comfortable! I opted for a different bottom than the one displayed with the top to add a little edginess to the girly top. I love mixing and matching bathing suits so who knows what I’ll add next to this fun little number. 😉
I had the great opportunity to collab with the Young & Reckless brand. They have badass shirts for men and women! They’re so comfy and fun and are great to wear with anything!
I decided to style this one in the perfect way for Miami. In the summer, there’s always pool parties, boat days and numerous aquatic activities. While you’re just lounging, rock your Y&R tank with a cute bikini bottom. This American Apparel one is so fun, stays on trend and lets you hide on those days you feel a little bloated. :O
