Crochet & Mom Pants

Wearing: Crochet Top, Mom Pants, Crystal Necklace from Electric Boutique, YSL Pumps, and Rag & Bone Hat.

Happy Monday!
This look is completely from a local shop called Electric Boutique the store is complete with a variety of pieces, all very different in style, from edgy, to basic. For my look, I was immediately drawn to this crochet top. First, because it is a crop and yes, I'm quite obsessed, and second because it so flirty, summery, and can be worn in many different ways. For instance, you can opt for a pair of cutoff shorts, a skirt, or even a pair of trousers. I decided to pair it with these funky denim pants because I wanted to add some edge, the fact that these were so distressed made them even better! The necklace added more of a boho feel to the look, and I loved the color of the crystal therefore, I just had to wear it. Overall, the look was my twist on a flirty summer look. I wore it with a pair of pumps, however, it can be worn with some flats. Or even try the top with some denim shorts, and some fun sandals. Now go check out electric, and if you do shop these items please share with me how you styled them!

Hello Happy Wednesday!
First, I hope you all are having a wonderful week. This look is completely from a local Miami shop called Shop Emporium owned by Sara Zaminkoff. The boutique is full of amazing pieces, super adorable boho looks, and of course pieces for a night out, as well as so many unique jewelry pieces (My Favorite). I just wanted to wear every single necklace she had in there all at once. Since my go-to look lately has been very basic, the necklaces are perfect. Now, about my outfit. 
This look is very casual, and summery, but it can very easily be transformed into a night ensemble by a simple swap of shoes, a pair of fun colored pumps would do the trick. However, my look is perfect for your typical day out in miami, brunch, or even a night at a hotel, so very tropical in a chic, nonchalant way. On the other hand, the two pieces can be worn separately, both are very versatile. For instance, the tee can be paired with a midi skirt, a pair of jeans, shorts, or even tucked into a pair of trousers. The skirt can be worn with a button down, a crop top, a tank, or a graphic tee. So head on over and check out Shop Emporium!

P.S how amazing are the flash tattoos also available at the store, simply to die!!!

Big Lamps

Wearing: In All Honesty Dress, Phillip Lim Shoes, River Island Hat, Jennifer Zeuner Lariat Necklace

Happy Monday! Last week I went for a lunch date with a friend of mine around midtown, and I came across this awesome spot to shoot. I felt like alice in wonderland because of the fun colored large lamps. The Design District is up and coming here in Miami and I am loving it, if it means awesome back drops for my blog post I am all for it. Now lets talk about how amazing the dress from In All Honesty is I adore the fact that it is a neutral color, and the leather shoulders are right up my alley. The cut of the dress is classic, yet edgy, making it versatile and easy to style. I opted to wear it with my new favorite loafers, they are bi color, have a clear panel, basically they are perfection. In sum, this look is perfect for this summers hot weather in lovely Miami. Just throw on this fun little dress, pair it with any shoes you want, or tuck it into your favorite denim shorts, and you are looking effortlessly chic!

Chloe + Isabel X Carolosiphy

Good Morning!
Recently I curated a little pop up shop with Chloe + Isabel, this involved me going through all of their amazing pieces and choosing my favorites. To be honest, I was IN LOVE with almost everything they had. However, I contained myself and chose a couple that I felt were more my style, you know a lot of layering necklaces, chokers, and the occasional statement pieces. The online shop has so many options, and has something for everyone, perfect for gifts for mom, bestfriends, and even grandma! Go check it out! Just click the picture!

Wearing: Helmut Lang Assymetrical Knitted Sweater, Abercombie Shorts, Celine Booties, Gucci men's Handkerchief. 

Happy Monday!
First, I hope you all had an amazing weekend! Last week I had a little Mini Shoot with my babe Lauren. I went for this look because clearly I am a fan of the all black look, and I wanted to show how black can still be done in the summer. I know that us women, once summer comes along feel pressured to have our "bikini body" but don't worry if you don't feel 100 precent one day, you can still opt for a look with darker hues. With that being said, this top is one of my favorites, simply because it can be worn all year round, with a tank-top under, with a blazer over, with a skirt, pants,  it is versatile AND it makes a statement. I paired it with some denim shorts because I wanted to go for a cooler vibe, and I wanted to accentuate it's cool cut. Another surprising accessory that is okay to wear in the summer are booties, in my case I wore them to give the look some edge. Finally, I wore a mens handkerchief around my neck to give the look some flare, and add a little color. So, there you have it, an all black look for summer, also don't be afraid to experiment with looking a little undone, as you can see my hair was a little messy, in my opinion it just makes the look a little cooler.

Socially Acceptable Sweats.

Wearing: Rag & Bone Leather Crop Top, Rag & Bone Sweat Pants, Christian Louboutin Stud Pumps.

Happy Monday!
As I mentioned in my last post I did a photoshoot for Second Fleet Magazine, for a feature I am excited to announce that the issue is out, just click the magazine name and check it out! There is a fun little Q&A section on me, my blog, and my style.  Now, lets talk about this look. I decided to go for a quick change since the shoot was in an abandoned area. Thus, I opted for the same crop two ways. As you all know I love comfort, so I thought why not pair this crop with some super cool sweatpants, and dress it down a little since the other look had a little more of a polished vibe. I went with the studded pumps to add some edge, as well as the little cheetah clutch that only fits your go-to lipstick. This outfit is perfect for brunch, or even a night out, it is comfortable, daring, fun, and of course chic. If you don't want to show too much skin, you can even wear a leather jacket over it, or even opt for a tee. However, I say you go shop your own closet and try this look out!
