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.

Wrap It Up.

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. 🙂

Strapless Jumpsuit with a Twist.

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!

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. 😉

Black in the Heat of the Summer.

Black is always ok to wear. It’s great to add some print and color.  Also, wearing shorts and keeping the black items to light, breathable fabrics helps you not  break a sweat!

Stay cool, bitches. xo

 

My Kind of Happy Meal.

First off, let me talk about how much I LOVE Moschino’s capsule collection. The pieces are iconic and so much fun! As a recovering fast food addict, it’s fun to get my daily dose of McDonald’s in a healthier and much more fashionable way.

I was lucky enough to find the ONLY place in Miami this bag is being sold! Capretto is located in South Miami and carries everything you’ll need in designer shoes and accessories. Plus, they’re always having amazing sales! Ditch the department store and head there instead. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re a little hesitant about this bag, don’t be! It can be worn a million different ways. Here I chose to wear it casually because I just wanted to wear it right away! But you can totally wear it with either your sweats and birks or with a leather jacket and your highest heels. This is the happy meal that keeps on giving. 🙂
