“Fall” time in Miami

Miami has had only one “fall-ish” day so far. By fall-ish, I mean the temperature dipped into the low 70’s for one day. I am praying for more cool weather because fall is definitely my favorite season to dress for. I am trying to stay out of the heat so that I can dress for the season, but it can be a bit challenging. Luckily, I will be making a trip for Thanksgiving to a cool climate state, so I can wear more cool weather clothing at the end of November!

I hope you all are having a great week. Just a reminder, if you want to keep up with me daily, be sure to follow me on Instagram @bisousbrittany! Thank you for stopping by today.

I received this beautiful statement necklace from Fabulux Boutique (Instagram account: @fabuluxboutique- Check them out) and knew it would be the perfect accessory for the fall time. I paired this beautiful statement necklace with my chunky knit sweater and crocheted khaki shorts from H&M for a comfortable and cozy look. To top everything off, I added my favorite green handbag and was out the door. Now you know me, I love me some bold lipstick, so I recently bought this beautiful Milani Cosmetics lip liner that I used all over my lips. I added a dark gloss on top and was ready to go.

How have you been dressing this fall? What are you favorite fall looks this season?

Talk to you all soon! Thanks for stopping by.

After wearing this red envelope skort, I remember why I loved it so much initially. If you can remember a while back, I wore it for this post, and haven’t put it on since. Why? I have no idea, because it really is the perfect pop of color for any neutral look. You know how sometimes, we forget we have certain items in our closet, and it isn’t until we rediscover them again that we pull them out of hiding? That is what happened with this red number. I guess that means I need to clean out my drawers and closet more often.

Thanks for stopping by today! Talk to you tomorrow!

Fall Chic

Ever since I have gotten my hands on this fall clutch from Linell Ellis, I cannot get enough of it. And the best part, I have a discount code for all of my readers! Type in “LEXBB15″ for 15% your Linell Ellis purchase! I am telling you, the quality and make of this clutch is worth every penny. It is the perfect size, the perfect color/pattern, and goes with just about any outfit.

For this look, you must have noticed that I am a bit obsessed with draping my blazer over my shoulders. I don’t know why, but I think it looks so sophisticated and chic. And can we talk about these heels. I have had them for YEARS! I believe I bought them my Sophomore year of college (2009), and have just brought them back out. They are a bit high for my liking, but aren’t they so cute? I just love the color. I must say, it is the perfect fall plum shade!\

I hope you all are having a fabulous week. I will talk to you all tomorrow.

What says girly more than diamonds, sparkles and hearts? I ‘d say nothing. This outfit combination is ultra feminine with a touch of edge for the leather skirt (which is a favorite of mine). As you can see, this week I have featured all different types of looks with some element of leather. If you want a more edgy look, try something like this. For a more chic and corporate look, try a style like this. And if you are going for a more relaxed vibe, then a style like this is for you!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Thank you for stopping by today and I will talk to you all soon!

My Current Obsession: Leather

This week, I definitely gravitated towards leather elements and even tomorrows post will feature some leather elements as well. I think that leather (faux leather) is always a great material for fall. It is chic but yet adds an edge to any look.

Some tips for wearing leather: 1) Minimal is better. Don’t wear too much leather at once. One key piece will suffice and give you the just the right about of edginess you need 2) Find the leather piece that suits your personality and style. This can be anything from a leather skirt, jacket, dress or even a top. 3) Balance is key. Make sure you are pairing pieces with your leather item that truly compliment that piece.

I hope these few tips help you when shopping for leather this fall and winter. Have fun with your leather pieces and if you have never worn it before, try it out this fall! You may find that you really enjoy it!

With the holidays coming up, the stresses of work always on the rise, and just life in general bringing ups and downs, sometimes we just need to kick off our heels, unbutton our shirts and just relax. I have to confess, most of my weekends are spent preparing for the upcoming week by running errands, cleaning up the house, doing laundry, and a whole bunch of other things. For this post, I wanted to convey that we don’t always have to be glamorous and beautified 100% of the time. It is important to relax, have a cup of tea or a glass of wine, and just unwind. I think a lot of people tend to just go, go, go and forget how important down time is. So this weekend, instead of being on the run doing errands and what not, try to relax, unwind and enjoy some peace and quiet.

A while back, my best friend gave me this vintage skirt she found at a local thrift shop and the fact that it fit perfectly, I knew it was a match made in heaven. This skirt is a suede material and I have worn it once before here. It is extremely versatile and I love the length. It is sexy yet still covers you up. I paired this look with an oxblood colored blazer and accessorized it with a body chain and my fabulous hand beaded clutch. This look is great for a night out on the town if you want to feel sexy, but not show too much skin.

I am beyond happy it is finally the weekend. This work week has been a long week for me personally. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will talk to you again soon!

Just when you thought I was completely into the fall season, I throw another summer look into the mix. I mean, who doesn’t love a good nautical outfit? I know I do! I am trying to get as much use out of my J.Crew hat as I can, because I haven’t figured out a way to make it transition into fall. It may just be a summer hat. What do you all think?

Also, I thought it would be fun to mix prints for this look. So I opted for my favorite Zara cheetah sandals and paired them with my nautical Gap sweater! I am really tempted to start mixing prints on a larger scale. I am a bit scared because it can definitely turn out soooo wrong. But the more and more I see photos, the more I want to try. I think that may be my new fashion challenge for myself.

I hope you are having a great week so far. It has been extremely dreary here in Miami. But that is typical Miami for you: it is still hurricane season.

Thank you for stopping by!
