There jacket says edgy to me. I love the color palette (the khaki green and black) and I absolutely love the faux leather sleeves. Like I told you earlier this week, I am obsessed with the “draping jackets over your shoulder” style. It is just so chic looking to me. I paired this fall jacket with my favorite distressed shorts from American Eagle and then added my usual gold touches! You know I can’t get enough gold jewelry.

Happy Friday everyone and I hope you have a great weekend. I will talk with you all soon!

If you didn’t notice already, I love gold accessories. I have never gravitated towards silver because growing up, my mom and family only wore gold and would only buy me gold jewelry. That has always stuck with me and for some reason, I just personally do not think silver looks very good on my skin tone. As you can tell from this look, I added pops of gold accents throughout this outfit. I kept the base of the look neutral with a taupe maxi skirt and a black crop top. What do you prefer more: gold or silver?

I have had my eye out for a cape jacket for months and months now. About a year ago, I had seen one on Chrissy Teigen (and I even posted about it here) and I believe the cape was a Victoria Beckham for upwards of $3,000 (Ouch!). Every since then, a cape jacket has been on my mind. Luckily, draping your blazers over your shoulders is quite the style now. So in the interim of me trying to find the perfect (and affordable) cape jacket, this style will have to suffice.

I actually really like the look of draping a blazer over your shoulders. It adds a sophistication to your look, and in my opinion looks more chic. Just an FYI, I may be doing this style more often in posts because I am diggin’ it that much! How do you feel about draping your blazers over your shoulders? Too much fuss? Or oh so right?

I have been trying to hold on to summer for dear life, but with fall approaching, it keeps getting more difficult. Fall officially starts on September 22nd, so it is safe to say, I have to put the summer clothing away and start introducing fall-like outfits. Consider this look my first semi-fall look. Even though I am wearing a crop top (which hey, give me credit, I live in Miami), the rest of the outfit is in my opinion fall-esque. How are you all transitioning back into fall?

Hope you all had a great weekend and are having a wonderful week thus far. Thank you for stopping by!

Why I Love Midi Skirts

5Skirt: Forever 21 (Similar), Shirt: TJ Maxx (Similar), Heels: Jessica Simpson from Nordstrom Rack (Similar), Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Banana Republic, Earrings: Rachel Roy from Nordstrom Rack, Purse: Canal Street

If I had to pick a length of skirt I preferred most, whether it be form-fitting or flowy, I would hands down pick a midi skirt. Being a curvy girl, this length is great for someone who has a similar shape as mine. For one, it is not revealing at all, unlike a mini-skirt, but is also not as long as a maxi skirt. It is a very feminine and girly look that can be paired with many different blouses, tee shirts and tank tops, and can be dressed up with a structured blazer, or dressed down with a simple cardigan. I also love midi’s in a more form fitting shape. Really, you just can’t go wrong with a midi in my eyes. What length is your favorite for skirts: mini, midi or maxi? The three M’s! Obviously, I think each of the skirt lengths are great in their own right, but I feel most confident in a midi.

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a beautiful day and a wonderful weekend. Thank you for stopping by and visiting today.

I am vowing to now invest in quality over quantity when it comes to shopping. And I have started with this Diane Von Furstenberg I scored at Nordstrom Rack. Over the weekend, I had been explaining to Tyronne that Diane had created the “wrap dress” and made it into the universally flattering dress for every woman. He wasn’t sure who Diane was or what a wrap dress looked like until I found this little red number at Nordstrom Rack. It was ironic, because I had literally just been explaining to him what the wrap dress was, and low and behold, a DVF wrap dress at Nordstrom Rack. Clearly it was fate!

I am guilty of investing in quantity over quality. But that is going to change now. I was and am so happy with this purchase, that I realized I need to invest in more beautifully made clothing, rather than 100 basic and poorly made items. This dress is everything I hoped it would be and more. It is classic, flattering, it is feminine, and it is simply perfect. I know I will be able to wear it for years to come.

I was so happy to be invited to the Ocean Drive September Issue event on Sunday. It was held at The Gale Hotel in South Beach, and the party was great! The drinks were delicious, the music was fun and the scene was low-key yet fabulous. It was my kind of night out.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today! Talk to you soon.

In case you didn’t know, the “no white after Labor Day” rule is no longer true. I have been seeing numerous fashion articles written on this topic, and one article by InStyle in particular really verified that the rule no longer exists. So for my last few weeks of summer, I opted for an all white summer look paired with a pop of colors in my heels. Also, I recently purchased this beautiful three strand gold necklace from Bauble Bar, and absolutely love it! I equally love a good thick and chunky statement necklace, but can always do a nice dainty chain as well.

How do you feel about white after Labor Day? Are you still holding on to the rule? Or are your letting it go like me?

Talk to you all soon!

Summer isn’t over quite yet! I am already seeing so many fall outfit posts online and on blogs, but fall doesn’t officially start until September 22. Since I have about 18 days left of summer, I am trying to get all my summer clothes out of my system. These palm frond pants are the quintessential summer pant. First off, the print is fabulous and the main reason I purchased them. Second, living in Miami, a bold print like this goes with the vibe of the city. Third, the fabric is so light and soft that is the perfect breathable pant.

To complete this summer look, I wanted to add a flowy and loose top for an effortless outfit. The whole look is extremely comfortable and very heat resistant, which is perfect for this 90 degree weather we have been facing.

I hope you all are having a great week and adjusted back to work easily. I know after coming back from a 4 day weekend, it was hard for me to adjust back to my normal schedule. But the upside is that it was only a 4 day work week!

I have been on a mission searching for the perfect summer, fall and winter hats lately. I don’t know why, but I have had the sudden urge to wear hats more and it may be due to my obsession with blog surfing and Pinterest. This J. Crew hat has been on my radar for a while, but it was always too expensive for me. Then one day, I got lucky and scored it on Poshmark for only $12!

With this hat, I wanted to wear a crisp and clean outfit that represents the final weeks of summer. I opted for a stripped over sized Gap blouse and my new favorite white jeans from American Eagle that are the perfect fit. Even though it is summer year round in Miami, I do want to attempt to change into fall colors come the end of September.

Finally, one of my favorite colors for accessories (mostly shoes and handbags) is camel brown. For this look, I paired my summer crisp outfit with a camel colored belt, sandals and handbag to finish the outfit.

How are you dressing for the end of the summer? Are you ready for fall or sad to see summer go?

Thank you for stopping by and talk to you all again soon!

Sometimes, you just need to go the casual route and opt for what is comfortable and effortless. To kick start my Labor Day weekend, here is an easy, yet put together fashion look.
