Clearly I’m going through a (vegan) leather skirt stage. From last week’s Leather n’ Blues post, to this week’s look-I just think they are the perfect sweater accompaniment…especially a crop sweater.
While I really am the biggest fan of tucking any top into any bottoms, I’ve notice the relaxed and cozy look that leaving a sweater un-tucked can convey…and I like it!
These are seperates I feel every girl needs in their closet for this season. A crop Aztec sweater, vegan leather skirt (Hot Miami Styles) and vibrant pumps to liven up any winter outfit.
Seriously in love with this necklace. Elephants are my thing and this has baby elephants on it. BABY ELEPHANTS.

There are some looks that you just want to wear over and over again. And for me, this is one of those looks.
I’ve talked about this leather mini before on Sugar Love Chic. I eyed it in my closet for a year before I finally figured out how I was comfortable styling it. I first styled it by dressing it up a bit. Since then, I’ve given it a sporty and more casual twist.
The simplest way of sportifying (attention urban dictionary) a leather mini is by adding some street cred with some funky sneaks. A relaxed sweater and statement necklace are other perfect and easy additions that offer an effortless look.
These are by far one of my favorite Zara purchases. They’re last season, but any funky and sporty flats will make this look.

I want to live in this sweater.
Such a cozy, over-sized cardi. I loved dressing it up for this part one of styling this cardi from Hot Miami Styles.
It was as easy as a killer pair of booties and studded satchel.
Since the sweater does all the talking, a simple t-shirt dress is the perfect layering piece.
And the easiest way to dress up an over-sized cardigan is to wrap it up with a belt. And if it happens to be a bow…even better!
Decided to add these Benevolent Jewels earrings, I’m just so in love with the earth tones in them. Perfect for this southwestern style sweater.

Recent times in Miami, the temperature has been fluctuating between 75-80 degrees. (November what?) However, currently we have been experiencing windy days dropping into the low 70′s. That’s the beginning of our Tropical Holiday weaher.
Naturally, that means one thing..besides being able to appropriately wear a scarf. Hot Chocolate. And if you want something a little extra to really warm your cold (or cool-er) days, try this Earl Grey Tea infused hot chocolate. You won’t regret it, promise.
- Whole milk
- High quality dark chocolate, 60% or higher cacao
- Earl Grey Tea bags
- Heavy Cream
- Vanilla Extract
I gave no quantities here, because it really depends how much you’re preparing to serve. A general proportion is to use 2 squares of high quality chocolate and 2 tea bags of Earl Grey Tea to every 8-10 ounces (roughly a cup) of milk used.
Pour milk into a small pot, place tea bags inside and bring to a simmer. Allow to steep for a few minutes. Then add chocolate. Stir until completely melted.
Use 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 3 tablespoon’s of white sugar and 2 teaspoon’s of vanilla extract and mix until forming peaks-this will be your delicious whipped cream. This can be used for 3 servings of the hot chocolate.

Achieving a fun and laid back look is as easy as an awesome cargo jacket.
It is the perfect layering piece and can be found in so many styles. I love this one from Forever 21.
The two reasons why this particular cargo jacket is a winner is because of the colorful shoulder designs and the great cinched waist. It’s easy to get lost in an over sized jacket, but the perfect cinched waist will keep you cozy, without looking sloppy.
And what seems like many wardrobe items, the cargo jacket looks chic with a pair of cheetah pants. That deserves a hashtag, #cheetahpants
I absolutely loved dressing up this laid back jacket with these Benevolent Jewels statement earrings. They are the perfect neutral color combo for this Fall season and will add the glam factor to any outfit.
