On Monday, I had the pleasure of attending the Ciroc Summer School of Mixology class hosted by Ocean Drive Magazine! I brought my friend Lorena with me to the Mondrian South Beach, and to say that we had a great time is an understatement. We learned how to make delicious cocktails, we socialized, snacked on hor d’oeuvres, and of course, drank all of the amazing Ciroc mixed drinks we learned from the amazing bartenders.

I am not one for alcohol by nature at all. Honestly, I don’t even like the taste, so if I ever do have one drink, the alcohol taste has to be masked. The Ciroc drinks we learned to make were all perfect, and believe me, I am not just saying that. Many of them featured juices like pineapple juice, lemon and lime juice, and other fruity elements that I really enjoyed. My favorite was definitely the Ciroc Martini. It was the Ciroc take on the Cosmopolitan. And of course, the bartender brought up how Carrie Bradshaw made the Cosmo so chic and fashionable, so I was sold at the description.

To end the night, we all went outside to take a group photo of the graduating class of Ciroc Mixology, and saw the beautiful sunset (last photo featured). It was the perfect event. A huge thank you to Ocean Drive Magazine and Ciroc for a beautiful event!

Bisous, Brittany Michèle

Blouse & Bracelets: Nordstrom Rack, Skirt: Zara (Similar), Necklace: Banana Republic, Sunglasses: Italia Independent, Heels: Jessica Simpson from Nordstrom Rack (Similar), Nails: Julep “Liz”, Watch: Michael Kors

As you can see, I am staying consistent with wearing pops of color for the summer. Even better, I have been color blocking a lot this season and I am absolutely loving it. Something about two bright hues paired together makes me feel extremely happy and well, colorful.

This skirt is from Zara’s summer sale, and I it may be my new favorite skirt. For one, it is midi length. Two, it has pockets!  And three, it is bright yellow; the perfect summer color. I wore this look to the Ocean Drive Magazine & Ciroc Mixology event on Monday, and as you can see, I have one of the drinks I made in hand.

Post coming soon on the actual event! Thanks for visiting!

Prints that remind me of Miami are really something I am drawn to at the moment. Anything that has a palm tree, pineapple or flamingo, I am all about for the summer time. This Lyfe tee is definitely a favorite of mine right now. I received it after participating in the Escape Miami 2 event, then went to the brands site and feel in love with all their tank tops. I have to say, the quality is extremely breathable and light, which is perfect for the summer time here in Miami. I can’t get over how hot it has become in the past couple weeks. So if you are looking for something that is lightweight and that is Miami inspired, check out their site.

I hope you all are holding up in this hot summer! Thank you for visiting with me today.

Fashion Happy Hour is an event that happens once a month for bloggers, vendors, designers, store owners and those who love fashion to come together and mingle. This month’s event was held at The Catalina Hotel in Miami, and I had the pleasure of being asked to contribute to the Styled By Bloggers segment. Each blogger was able to style their own model. I went with a Miami chic look for my model Jasmine. She wore ALX Couture printed shorts, clutch and hot pink top and MV Trends earrings. I also wanted my model wearing a top knot because this heat is no joke right now in Miami.

If you are in the Miami area and are looking for a fashion event to attend, be sure to check out Fashion Happy Hour’s calendar on their website.

Thank you all for visiting today!

I’m back to my colorful ways and bringing to you a pastel summer color-blocking look! I am wearing two new items that I purchased over the last two weeks from the great summer sales that have been going on. First is my beautiful new J.Crew necklace. You know me, I love a good statement piece, and I believe the price tag was only $20-$25! That is amazing for J.Crew. I typically don’t ever shop there because their prices can be a bit high, but their sale right now is out of control.

The second piece that is new is my mint colored Zara pants. Aren’t they so fun and summery? They fit perfectly and comfortable, and I absolutely love this bright mint color. You will be seeing a lot of new Zara pieces coming up in my wardrobe. I went a bit crazy with their sale. It was just too good to pass up, so I stocked up on supplies!

I hope you all are having a great week! Thanks for stopping by today!

Okay, okay, okay, I know I just got done telling you all that I am staying away from black for the summer and trying to incorporate more colors into my wardrobe, but you have to understand, this is a crotchet black dress! So it is very summery. Plus it is sleeveless and a great length for the summer time to keep you cool in this Miami heat.

This cute little LBD is from my favorite boutique of the moment, M and Co. It isn’t restrictive, it is loose fitting, but still makes you look feminine. Pair this LBD with your favorite pair of strappy heels, and you are set for a night out on the town.

Okay so I am just going to pat myself on the back and say, I have really stepped up my color game this summer. I have been doing pretty good if I do say so myself, with staying away from my typical neutral palette. So let’s talk about these fabulous lime colored shorts paired with printed tank top from M and Co. How perfect is this color combination for summer time? It is a great look for the day time with a cute pair of sandals or it can be the perfect alternative for going out. Paired with some high heels (like I am wearing in this post), you are ready for a night out on the town.

Last night, I attended my first show for Miami Fashion Week Swim! I saw some gorgeous swimsuits. A lot of metallics and yellows were on the cat walk, if you are interested in purchasing some on trend color bikinis.

I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful start to your weekend!

The little black dress is always a go to for nights that we can’t figure out what to wear. Every woman on this planet should own her perfect LBD (little black dress) that will rescue her in times of fashion desperation.

This beautiful black dress is new from M and Co. and is the perfect sexy black dress for summer. The material is light weight and the thin straps are perfect for the summer heat. When I saw the back of this dress, I instantly thought “Sexy Sack”, just like the J.T. song – yes, corny I know. But I still entitled this post Sexy Back anyways.

By the way, has anyone checked out the Zara sale that is happening? I may have done a little too much shopping.

Thanks for visiting!

First things first: Can we just talk about this fabulous neon skirt for a second? I am absolutely in love with it. And what can be more fabulous than a little lace detailing at the bottom? I would would say… nothing. This skirt is perfect for going out this summer. The color itself screams summer and the black lace detailing is sexy and sophisticated all in one.

This week, I have teamed up M and Co. for a July collaboration to showcase for you all their amazing new clothing that is currently out this month! If you are looking for some great pieces for your summer wardrobe, look no further than M and Co. 

I hope you all are having a fabulous week! Talk to you soon.

On Friday, I had the pleasure of working with Miami photographer Tola Osokoya (IG @hi_tola) and my good friend Joanna in Key Biscayne. We shot at the Marine Stadium which is an amazing place filled with walls and walls of graffiti! I had such a fun time with the two of them and as you can tell, I liked almost every photo we took! The scenery is unbelievable because the stadium seats over look the crystal blue water.

I decided to wear something that wouldn’t clash with the graffiti so what better than an little black and white number.  I paired the look with black aviators and a pop of color on my lips with this fabulous MAC color!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I am so excited for the upcoming week as it will be Miami Fashion Week-Swim. So get ready for some fashion week posts!
