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!

I’m a Working-Class Person Working with Class.

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!

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.

Comfy but Chic.

As you all may know, I am the web director for ShopBlush.com. They are a chain of Miami based boutique that recently launched their online website and sometimes, I have the lucky chance to assist on the buying trips in LA.

When I explain to everyone my short one day trip to LA, they are always in shock. I usually leave a Tuesday night, arrive that same night and then leave the next night. Yes, I’m only there a mere 25 hours.

The day is spent running around visiting different vendors and of course, In & Out. After a long day of being in the beating sun and being left with swollen, pulsating feet, we head straight to the airport to catch the red-eye. This trip takes the life out of you and is not meant for the weak at heart but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s fun, exciting and a great way to soak up the LA vibe for a bit. It’s also great seeing things that I’ve specifically chosen carried at Blush Boutique and seeing people love them…yes, I love my job.

Anyways, back to my outfit. I wanted something comfy but still chic. This dress is kind of long and frumpy (I’m used to this since I’m so petite) so adding a denim shirt tied around the waist was the perfect touch! A cool belt, maybe a chain belt, could also totally work to help spice up a little dress like this. Not to mention the birks; you can’t travel to LA and not wear birks. 😉

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!

WET Swimwear – MBFW Swim.

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. 😉
