Bringing out a coat this heavy in Miami is very…VERY exciting. I wore this when it recently dropped to the low 50’s (omgosh I know like so cold…I’m a Miami girl what can I say?)
Anyway, I whipped out this LookBook Store bad boy faster than you can say “I’ll be sweating in this thing by noon!”.
I actually didn’t star sweating, because the day kept its chilly temps.
And because I moved like really slow and hid from the sun.
Obviously the coolest thing about this jacket is the convertible lapel. How rad is that? Really rad. And I love the rich Navy hue-it’s the perfect winter neutral and will be great for pairing with practically any color!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday season so far and are just as excited as I am for Christmas next week!!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here and I truly miss it! Life has been pretty hectic lately and to be honest I’ve had less time available to make cocktails and have just been drinking them
But behold! This Cranberry Martini made with homemade Cranberry Syrup…it’s not too sweet and has a subtle kick!
Cranberry Syrup Ingredients
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup water
3/4 cup granulated sugar
How to make: Place 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, he water and the sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until brought to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until cranberries are tender but before they burst, about 15 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a medium bowl and let the strainer sit over the bowl until the syrup has cooled to room temperature, about 1 hour.
1 1/2 parts unflavored vodka
1/2 part orange-vanilla vodka (I used Voli Orange-Vanilla Fusion, however just orange flavored will work too)
2 parts cranberry syrup
splash of fresh lime juice
splash of orange juice
To make: place into shaker both vodkas, cranberry syrup and ice cubes. Shake well. Pour into martini glasses. Splash the lime juice and orange juice. Garnish with fresh cranberries!
With the cold fronts that have been hitting Miami lately, I’ve dressing pretty low-key. Lots of layers and boots. So it was so nice to wear this darling dress from Yumi Direct. It’s so feminine and dainty, I love it!
I thought what better than to pair it with delicate t-strap heels? The print of the dress, and the beautiful lace details, called for simple nude heels. This dress is from Yumi Direct‘s Distant Digitals Line, which is all about stellar abstract and color rich prints. This subtle floral dress I’m wearing is the perfect flowery print option for Winter!
And how pretty are those earrings? I’m sure you have been seeing them everywhere like I have. The style is called the 360 Pearl Earring, for obvious reasons. These are from a recent BaubleBar haul. I’ve been wearing them non-stop!
I love jackets. Every color, every style. They make styling an outfit a breeze and add an automatic finishing touch. When I got my hands on this Lookbook Store studded beauty, it was truly love at first site.
This jacket makes me feel way cooler than I am. It’s uber structured and the zipper details are so cool. I get the urge to kick some butt in this thing….”you want a piece of dis?”
Another thing I’m loving these days are cut out booties. They’re pretty sweet. I’ve linked below some different styles at different prices for Cut Out Booties.
I hope you’re all having a WONDERFUL week. Until next time loves!
I know many of you are in much (much much) colder climates at the moment, and either think I’m nuts or are sighing with jealously at these pics since I am wearing cut offs in December. But I promise you, while I love my city, I would love even more to be able to be bundled up in scarves and beautiful coats during the season. So I envy YOU.
Although this combo is truly my favorite look to sport during this time of the year, I wouldn’t mind actually having to put pants on for a change!
Anyway, how adorable is this sweater? I’m in love with varsity style sweaters, so when the LookBook Store sent this over my way I couldn’t wait to get it on! It’s sooooo cozy and can easily be styled preppy and edgy. Oh and it’s currently ON SALE.
And how about these Kelsie Dagger Peep Toe Booties? Also something I haven’t been able to take off since I bought them. They literally go with everything!
