Casual Friday

Blazer: Zara ( similar here), Jeans: Rag & Bone/Jean, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik ( similar less expensive here and here  ), Tank: Feel the Piece ( similar here and here ) Bag: Louis Vuitton, Sunglasses: Prada, Watch: Fossil, Bracelets: gift from my friend from India

Today I'm showing you an outfit that's perfect for those "casual" days at the office ( minus the hair 'cause, let's be honest, mine's a hot mess in these pics!). A classic blazer, a pair of jeans in an even wash ( no holes), and a pair of closed toe pumps. Come 5:30 pm all you have to do is throw on a statement necklace and you're ready for happy hour!

Happy Hump day, peeps! Just two more days 'til Friday. Any fun plans for the holiday weekend?!

All White, Not Quite

Shirt: Anthropologie, Jeans: Siwy Denim, Heels: Manolo Blahnik, Bag: Clare V, Necklace and Earrings: Kendra Scott, Sunglasses: Bvlgari, Watch: Fossil, Lipstick: Mac " Show Orchid"

Short post today as I show you an "all white" look that's actually not. I am not a huge fan of "all white" or "all black" looks. If you've been coming by for any amount of time, you'll know that I am a huge fan of color- bright color at that. So, true to form, I had to add a punch of color to this outfit. This time it's magenta, by way of the necklace and earrings, and the high heels. And, of course, I added my favorite new clutch! I absolutely love it so, you will be seeing a lot more of it around here.

Wishing you all a great Monday and a fabulous week!

Dreaming of Fall

T-Shirt: Rag & Bone/Jean, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik, Scarf: Anthropologie, Bag: Prada, Watch: Fossil, Bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sunglasses: Versace 

Do not let these pictures fool you. It is nowhere near fall or even fall-like weather here in the 305. While a lot of other areas in the country are already experiencing a drop in temperatures and talking about transitioning to fall, in Miami, August is probably the hottest month of the year. With temperatures in the low to mid nineties and the humidity and UV index rendering the "real feel" into the 100's sometimes, the closest we can get to fall is by dreaming of it- or in my case, throwing on a beautiful autumn-esque scarf and just pretend!

By the way, you still have time to enter the $300 Visa Giftcard Giveaway! It ends this Sunday, August 24th at 11:59 pm central time. If you have not done so already, you can enter here. Good luck!!!

Happy Friday, beauties! I hope you have a fantastic weekend and see you all back here on Monday!

Clutching It


Top: Zara ( liking this one here too!) Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik ( similar here and on sale here), Clutch: Clare Vivier ( also got my eye on this one and this one here), Watch: Fossil, Bracelets: Stella and Dot, Lipstick: Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Harlow Red 

Today I want to show you one of my newest purchases- this awesome Clare V clutch. I had my eye on it for quite some time but was debating on whether or not I really needed it. I have one similar to it ( you can see it here on this post), but it's decidedly not the same. Anyway, after seeing it on two of my favorite ladies, Maggie here, and Nicole here, I was sold. This clutch can be dressed up or down and it will always look elegant. Just by seeing how differently the three of us styled it, you can appreciate its versatility. 

Like most other animal print pieces, this clutch, is actually a neutral. It goes with just about everything and adds that little bit of umph that makes the difference. In my book, it's an absolute must-have.

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! By the way, don't forget to enter the $300 Visa Giftcard Giveaway that I'm hosting along with 9 other fashionable ladies. If you haven't done so already, you can enter here. Be sure to check out all the other lovely ladies' blogs for more fashion inspiration too! Good luck!!! See you back here on Friday. ;-)

Good Monday morning, loves! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Ours was spent dining with friends on Friday and Saturday evening, and then just relaxing on Sunday. As expected, my week-long break was just what the doctor ordered. Although, I have to be honest, I did go on some of my social media sites over the weekend, just to see what everyone else was up to! Lol... The addiction! Anyhow, I'm very happy to be back and want to thank you for all the wonderful, supportive comments.

Pressing the Pause Button

Top: Ella Moss ( also looking at this one ), Jeans: AG Adriano Goldschmied ( also loving these and these ), 
Shoes: Guess ( old, but similar here and on sale here! ), Bag: Chanel, Sunglasses: Prada, Necklace and Earrings: Fossil ( old, but totally swooning over this one here and this color here! ), Lipstick: Mac "Mac Red", Watch: Fossil 

Every so often, about once or twice a year, I like to take a break from the internet and social media for a week or so. During that period, instead of being on FB, Insta, other blogs, etc..., I spend that time either reading a book (usually self-improvement or travel related), in prayer/meditation, going for a walk, or just simply being in silence enjoying the view from my apartment. In this day and age of information overload, we can get "bombarded" with things that, although they may not seem like it, can take away from us actually "living" and being in the moment.

Now, I don't mean to get all philosophical on you. I'm just saying that, sometimes, I need to take a break and disconnect. It's like pressing the pause button, so to speak. Every time I do this, the result is always positive. I come back thinking more clearly, feeling more connected, and with a fresher take on things!

So as my dear friend, Audrey, would say- to make a long story longer, I'm taking said break next week and will see you all back here on Monday, August 18th. I wish you all a fantastic weekend! 

In the meantime, I leave you with a look I wore last Friday to go out for drinks and dinner with my hubby. :-)

Not Chambray, Per Se...

Shirt: Glam via Cavalier boutique in Coral Gables ( similar here and here ), Shorts: Rag & Bone/Jean for Intermix ( also loving these here and here ), Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell ( old, but similar on Sale here ), Bag: Haute Gali, Sunglasses: Versace, Lipstick: Mac "Rebel"

The other day I was doing a little shopping at one of my favorite local boutiques, Cavalier, in Coral Gables ( if you live in Miami, you have to check them out ), and, on my way out, I notice this little gem of a shirt. It's not really Chambray per se ( ooh, that rhymed! ), but it  is the softest, lightest, most comfortable cotton you'll ever wear. Unfortunately, it's not available online, but I did link some very similar ones for you.

I paired it with my Rag & Bone white denim shorts, a pair of ankle strap sandals, and one of my favorite artisan/ethnic bags to add some color- 'cause you know I gotta have some color! 

Happy Wednesday, beauties! See you back here on Friday!
