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!

We all have our one favorite LBD (“little black dress”) that we reach for when we are in a rush to get dressed and don’t know what else to wear. Well this dress is “that” dress for me! I purchased this lovely black number last year from Express when I was in New York City. What I love about it is the material and shape. It is a heavier material that clings to my body perfectly. Plus, I love the skater cut. It is fun, flirty and feminine!

I paired this dress with my new Nine West heels that I found on clearance at Nordstrom Rack and added some deep green accessories for a fall look! I am really getting into fall, I have to say. How are you all transitioning into fall?

Thank you all for stopping by and I will chat with you again tomorrow!

Words cannot express how happy I am that it is officially fall. Even though Miami won’t have any cool weather for a few months (if that), I am happy I get to wear fall colors now. I had tried extremely hard this summer to wear more bright colors, and I think I did a pretty good job. But now that it is fall, I can bring out my darker hues again!

One of my favorite fall colors is oxblood (also known as maroon, burgundy, wine or bordeaux). It is the perfect color to wear on your nails, on your lips and definitely in your outfit. What is your favorite fall color to wear?

I have to say that I am loving this pairing of oxblood and deep green!

Thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you all soon!

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!
