Bundle Up: Knitwear and Coats This Fall

Combining great colors and matching garments this autumn might require you to use more of your creativity and imagination. The Huffington Post recently said, “Autumn usually gets a bad rap for its darker colors and heavier fabrics.” Before hefty and dark-hued clothes fill up your closet space, why not try other options such as vibrant-colored knitwears? According to Marks & Spencer’s Style Edit article, “Knits from the autumn/winter shows have a grown-up appeal. Think refined, effortless and chic. Classic dark tones, soft shades and patterns will bring a cosiness to your new-season wardrobe.” To learn more about the sophisticated knitwears to wear this fall, here are a few options: Cashmere A printed jumper tucked into a dark pencil style skirt matched with a glamorous necklace is perfect for casual to evening meetings. Cashmere jumper knitwear usually come in shades of gray and black; as well as red and blue. Patterns  Knit…Read More

Booties to Boot

  {Skirt: Target. Booties: c/o Marshalls.} As soon as a new season rolls around, there’s that one thing you race out to buy to lock in the fact that a new fashion season is upon us. For me, it’s always a new pair of shoes. And come fall, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on booties. Yes, booties. That trend is still going strong. And trust me, with the slew of trends out this season, everything from burgundy bags to cobalt blue dresses and emerald green accessories, locking down just one thing to kick off fall wasn’t an easy task. For me, it was love at first sight when I spotted these black booties at Marshall’s. The store asked me to find a piece that would easily transition my wardrobe into fall, and for me, these booties were it. And for just $60, too, more than $40 off the…Read More

Fashion For A Cause

{Tee: c/o Peace Love World I Am Life tee. Ten percent of proceeds from each tee purchased goes to Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation. Skirt: Target. Booties: c/o Marshalls. Photographed by: Alexander Tamargo / @ALTAimages.} It’s think pink time again. As I mentioned last year, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is something that’s important to me because my junior year of high school I had a tumor removed from my left breast. Thank God it wasn’t anything serious. But it opened my eyes to the necessities of breast health. It’s something you absolutely cannot ignore. And if the month of October is a reminder for us to do that, then it’s a movement I’m going to get behind however I can. This year, I was blessed to be a part of the blogger-driven Fashion for a Cause Campaign, which was photographed at the Sagamore over the course of two days…Read More

My Date With Lacoste

{High/Low Top: Shopblush.com. Leather Shorts: American Apparel. Knee-high Socks: American Apparel. Necklaces: c/o Forever 21. Booties: c/o Lacoste Rosemont Chelsea. Bag: Gigi New York from Petite Chic Gifts.} Last week, I caught up with a bunch of my blogger sisters at Lacoste’s 80th birthday bash at Addict in Bal Harbour Shops. It was a night that was, really, all about the shoes. The traditional 80th gift is oak, but leather kicks are that much better. And it seems we all have similar tastes. If it wasn’t the booties, we bloggers were all about the sneakers. I opted for black booties, of course. And paired mine with leather shorts and a high/low top and knee socks. To be honest, I felt a little like a dark hero in a comic book. What can I saw, Halloween is coming up and I’m uber excited. The knee-socks were a little out of the…Read More

Forward Thinking

{Jeans: Mossimo. Bag: Vintage Nanette Lepore. Shoes: c/o Ecco Ossima Wedge Sandal. Cuff: c/o BeeCharming.com Starfish Cuff.} Because it’s October, but it still feels like August, so we’re still rocking really colorful stuff and sandals these days. But inside, I’m scheming my Halloween costume. Every year I put together a homemade costume for kiddo with something corresponding for myself, the dogs, whomever. And this year, Milly and I already have our concept. Now to execute it. We have one rule though: Our costume is top secret. So, the other day we were at the salon and someone asked kiddo what she was going to be for Halloween and she looked at me, almost blurted it out, covered her mouth and said, “It’s a secret.” Atta girl! Like everyone else on the planet, they will just have to wait until October 31 to see what we’ve concocted. I’m so excited. I…Read More

Going Nude at Neiman Marcus

{Snakeskin dress: Karina Grimaldi. Shoes: Fergie c/o Famous Footwear. Bag: c/o Miss Gustto. Mini rings: Shopblush.com. Necklace: Vintage. Photographed by the very awesome socks Juliana Cardona of afashionsoiree.com.} So what are we wearing on our eyes and lips for fall? Nothing, baby. We’re going nude. OK, not really, but we want it to look that way. Neiman Marcus in Coral Gables recently asked me to talk about the nude beauty trend for fall, and I jumped at the chance. I’ve always loved rocking a nude lip with a smokey eye. Or a nude eye with a big, red lip (my personal fave). But to put it all together was even more fun. An au natural overall, if you will. The night went a little something like this … A director’s chair with your blog name, swoon! Jana Rose Carrero of ojandcigs.com and I pretty much climb behind our seats and…Read More

Emerald City

{Leather and Emerald Green Dress: Karina Grimaldi. Necklace: c/o Bare Collection The Orbit Necklace. Booties: Steve Madden.} What are the fall trends I’ve fallen for this season? Societe Perrier asked, so I answered in their Miami fall fashion blogger roundup, which you can peep here.   I’m obsessed with the leather trend, I love emerald green, I can’t get enough of statement necklaces and I found THE perfect bootie for Miami (open toe and heel). The best part: My dress is made by the amazing local designer Karina Grimaldi. Supporting local brands is something that is so close to my heart. Miami has a pool of talented designers. Seek them out when you go in search of your fall wardrobe. I know I’ll be sporting this number again come Basel.
