I’ve never really been into hoodies, but I couldn’t pass up this dress! It’s so perfect to just put on and head out the door in this warm weather. It’s definitely a versatile piece too. Wear it with sandals, heels and sneakers…awesome for most activities that come your way during the weekend!
P.S. is anyone else relishing in the sunshine coming their way? Whether it’s a whole lot of it or just small rays, I’ve turned a new leaf when it comes to the sun. Living in Miami, sometimes the Spring and Summer come all too quickly and before we know it we’re all baking like tater totes. I mean so hot you wish walking the streets in bikinis was legal…which it kind of is in Miami. So I guess you wish that it wasn’t frowned upon.
I love chilly weather and sweaters, so normally when Summer comes our way it’s a sad parting for me as that’s when I begin to break a sweat simply walking to my car from a store. In these beginning days of 80 + degrees I have to say, I’m truly looking at the sunshine in a different light. Feeling the heat (and I mean heat) on my shoulders while walking Lincoln Road, even if it means a little sweat in doing so, has never made me more grateful to be able to feel the warmth and squint at the sky.
I know this is totally irrelevant to my outfit post, but everyday I’ve been feeling more and more grateful for the simple things in life and it’s been truly refreshing. Don’t forget to enjoy the little things!
“Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.”- Humphry Davy
I’ve been back and forth for sometime now, on deciding whether or not to buy the on trend ribbed side slit dress. I feel that with some style trends, the theory is better than the reality. I just didn’t know if I could pull off (or anyone really) the look of an over-sized, no-shape, layered look. Then I realized what I always realize when it comes to these things, if I like it…then go for it. It also helped that this dress was so inexpensive, should I have hated the outcome. But, I totally love the look of it and I know you can rock it too!
If you’re a shorty like me, I recommend two things when it comes to styling these type of dresses:
1. If it hits you wellbelow the knee, wear it with some sort of heel-even it is a short one.
2. If you want to wear it with flat shoes, definitely shorten it to lay no more than a few inches underneath your knees. Although I wore it with some of my favorite boot heels, I know I’m going to want to sport this with sandals during the Spring and Summer. So, I’m definitely going to take it to my seamstress.
It’s officially the beginning of outdoor festivities here in South Florida. And the first of sunny events is the highly anticipated Miami Open Tennis!
Like most outdoor events, looking good while keeping it cool is essential. Lacoste makes that easy. From classic shirt dresses and tennis skirts to everyday totes and hats, you’re bound to find something perfect to sport for any outdoor spectator event.
This dress is so versatile, it makes a great investment piece. You can easily style it with some tennis shoes, even a pair of metallic sandals. I decided to wear it in a way that can easily be taken from day to night. Work to cocktails and a little tennis watching.
The black and white print was just screaming for a pop of red (hence the red lips ) and I couldn’t think of a better accessory to play the part than this gorgeous red leather tote. Leather totes, as opposed to canvas or any other material, are easy to take from different levels of dress. Causal during the day and dressier for the evening; it’s another great investment piece to have.
A special thanks for Lacoste on Lincoln road for their help.
Cobalt and Royal Blue are my favorite shades of blue. They are always on trend and add a great pop to any outfit. I particularly love these colors in more casual and laid-back looks.
Another Spring staple that I’m bringing back into my wardrobe this season is my envelope skirt. If you still don’t have one, I really recommend getting one. They instantly make any outfit a little edgy and go with everything!
Today I’m decked out in Dancing Jewels. This adorable online store had great accessories and really unique apparel. I know I’ll be sporting this top all season long-I just love the tropical print! And my double-sided earrings are such fab statement pieces.
My gladiator sandals aren’t available any longer, but below you’ll find a few that are similar and inexpensive:
Well, it didn’t take long for Spring weather to roll in here in Miami. We’re already reaching the 80’s daily and the sun is shining brightly! I do love having the warm sunshine back, but I’m going to miss my sweaters.
So, I’ve had this ruffled crop top since last Spring. I’m pretty excited about bringing it back this season. It adds a great feminine touch to any outfit. Previously, I have styled it with a few different skirts, but once I got my hands on these palazzo pants from Target, I knew they were destined for some great crop top action. The ruffles on the top and print on the bottom make for a fun combo!
Hope you all have a wonderful week! I’ll be back here soon
Tomorrow is Friday! That’s something worth celebrating
I’m pretty excited about slipping on these overalls again this weekend. I just bought them during one of my Target runs, of course I went in for nail polish and left with cute overalls! Target is a black whole for my money…
Anyway, this outfit was so comfy! After wearing heels all week long, it sure feels good to slip on some cute sandals and overalls. This was the perfect outfit to hang around in and run some errands with my fiance.
And how awesome is this ear bar/cuff? It’s from k r a t e, an online jewelry store that is about to launch!
