Even though it is still extremely hot here in Miami, fall is quickly approaching at the end of September, so I decided to style my favorite felt hat from H&M! It is definitely a transitional piece that can be worn numerous ways for many seasons. I have really been into hats lately, and quite honestly, I have been trying to shop for more. I would love to find a nice burgundy and gray felt hat for the fall, so trust that I am on the hunt for one right now.
I hope you all are having a nice start to your week! Talk to you again soon.

Who doesn’t love a good pineapple print? I immediately fell in love with the print upon laying eyes on it and I knew it would be the perfect summer dress for me. As you can tell, I really did go all out when Zara had their summer sale. If you look back at my posts from the past 3-4 weeks, the majority of my key pieces are Zara. I am sorry, but I cannot pass up a great Zara sale because I typically don’t shop their normal priced items. I am all about a good bargain.
I am beyond happy it is Friday and cannot wait to rest this weekend as I am coming down with a cold. I am hoping I make it to the beach, weather permitting, and get back my summer glow. It is fading a little too much for my liking. What are you plans for this weekend? Anything fun?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!

It continues to be extremely hot here in Miami. The temperature is always upwards of 90 degrees, so as you know, one must dress accordingly. I have been wearing a lot more dresses to combat the heat. This Zara dress is the perfect Miami summer outfit because it is breathable, flowy, and there is no fuss. And as my best friend informed me, there are water colored fish on this dress! Honestly, I never even noticed and just thought it was watercolor prints. But nope! Upon further inspection, there are fish, which makes the dress even cuter to me!
To accessorize this look, I paired the dress with my new Alma Mei turquoise and red bow clutch.What I love about this clutch is that it is extremely large and wide. You can fit so much stuff into it and it even has a gold chain strap if you don’t want to hold it in your hand… major plus! I topped off the look with what I like to call my “princess necklace” to add an element of chic.
I hope you enjoyed my post on how to not melt in this awful Miami heat. If you have any fashion tips on how to stay cool, I would greatly appreciate them! What are you wearing this summer? I know for some of you in the North East, the summer is subsiding and you are already feeling fall. But for those of you in the South or on the West Coast, how are you keeping you cool?
Have a great day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Sometimes, there is that one flannel shirt or denim button down that your boyfriend has in his closet and you think to yourself “Man, that would look cute on me!”. Well that is pretty much what happened in this post. I stole Tyronne’s black and red flannel button down because I knew it would be perfect for the look I was envisioning in my mind.
In this post, I am featuring two different shirts. The first being my new favorite crotchet Zara crop top that I absolutely adore. It is the perfect summer crop top, it can be dressed up or down, it is extremely versatile (I can see myself wearing it for different seasons), and it adds a feminine touch to this boyish look.
The second top I am wearing was designed by my good friend Sarah over at The House Of Sequins! This tee may be THE most comfortable shirt I own. It is so light weight, perfect for running errands, or just lounging in the house. You can purchase this ultra cute tee here. Plus, who doesn’t relate to the quote “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry”. I know I am guilty of being sassy while hungry or B.S.W.H. (I should coin that term haha).
And my latest and favorite addition to my closet are my perfectly bright and white converse! I have been wanting these sneakers for ages and I finally went out a purchased them this past weekend. As you can see from my blog, I have never worn sneakers in any outfit post, but I am trying to step outside of my fashion comfort zone and play around with trends I love.
I hope everyone’s week is going well! Talk to you tomorrow!

Yellow has definitely been a favorite color of mine to wear this summer. The color is perfect for bringing out your summer tan and making you feel happy, vibrant and well, summery! You can see from my post here and here that I was loving yellow this season. And you know me, I love gold accessories. So to top of this look, I added a gold link necklaces, my gold watch, and my new gold bracelet from Nordstrom Rack. Oh and you can’t forget my new J. Crew clutch that goes with literally everything in my closet.
As if the dress wasn’t vibrant enough, I wanted to play it up a little more and what better way of doing that than taking photos behind some fabulous graffiti. If you have been to Miami, you know that Wynwood is our Art District and you can see some amazing graffiti art throughout the whole area. If you have not been before, be sure to go check out all of the artistry in our art district, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you for visiting with me today and have a great week!

Two weekends ago, I attended a great blogger event at Maker’s showroom in downtown Miami. A few Miami fashion bloggers were invited to watch a runway show of Maker’s latest shoe designs, snack on some hor d’oeuvres (with a fabulous black & white dessert bar), and obviously socialize with one another over drinks. The event was created by my fabulous friend Maghan from MaghanItWork (be sure to check her out).
We had such a wonderful time socializing, looking at shoes, and snacking on some delicious food! We also received a little gift before we left, which you will see in a later post!

Summer will not dictate what I can and can’t wear. Some would say that leather isn’t for the summer time, but I beg to differ. I think leather (or pleather in my case) can be worn year round whenever you feel like adding edge to your look. As for a denim button up, I mean, how can you not have one in your closet. I am going on my 4th one at this point because they are so versatile and go with pretty much every single bottom whether it be a skirt, shorts, or pants.
Topknots are for days that I am bordering the 2-3 day mark of not washing my hair. It is such a great summer style. But again, I would and will wear a topknot for every season. It is a great way to look chic and pulled together if you want to show off your face. And it is especially great for all my makeup fans who want to display your beautiful makeup artistry for the day.
Finally, these fabulous sunnies are by far my favorite sunglasses ever. I am not one for sunglasses because they always leave a big red mark on my nose when I take them off. But I am making a huge effort to wear them now, while driving in particular, just because it is better for my eyes.
Thanks for stopping by today! Talk to you all soon!

If you follow me on Instagram (@BisousBrittany), you would have seen that this past weekend, I was in New York City wedding dress shopping for my best friend Kristina’s wedding. New York City truly has my heart. It is such a vibrant city and the second I touch down at the airport, I feel this sense of life that is unlike another other place. I haven’t been to every single city in the world so it is hard to say New York is my favorite city ever. But I do know that it is hard to compete with my love for New York City.
On Friday, we started our wedding dress hunt. First, we went to Kleinfeld’s, which was an amazing and fun experience! Kristina did end up saying “Yes” to an amazing dress, and I have to say, it is stunning! I cannot wait to share photos of her dress in May of 2015. The weather on Friday was absolutely perfect, which I was not expecting. I thought the summer heat would consume us, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was in the low 80′s and there was a perfect breeze throughout the entire day. It was simply perfect for wedding dress shopping.
I wanted to dress comfortable yet cute for the day, so I brought out my new favorite pale pink girly dress! I love how simple the dress is and I am in love with the bow in the back! It is the perfect sun dress. For accessories, I went for my princess look. I opted for my diamond Bauble Bar necklace and beautiful Rachel Roy earrings (that Kristina gave to me when she asked me to be her maid-of-honor). I just wanted to add a touch of glitz to my simple look.
I hope you all had a fabulous and relaxing weekend! Thank you for stopping by.
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!

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!
