I have an announcement to make.

It's probably pretty ridiculously obvious how much of a health freak I am, aside from my love for fashion and food.  If my words are not enough, then check out my Instagram for proof.  Over the course of about six or so months, I have been working on a project for you guys that I am quite excited to share with you.  In between snapping photos with my tripod in face-melting weather, turning into a gourmet chef as I whip up macaroni and cheese or chicken nuggets for my toddler, or transforming my condo into a video shoot, something developed.  

Without further ado, I launched an eBook dedicated to harnessing positive thoughts and healthy habits.  The eBook encompasses a range of healthy recipes for radiating mornings, beauty tips, inspiration, and even some of my favorite workouts and juice recipes.  Creating a radiant life isn't only reliant on eating habits, but mind, body, style, and so much more.  Hence, my first eBook, Chic Eats: Radiate Your Mornings.

Amongst one of my favorite photo shoot locations, my tripod and I took a little jaunt to snap this little denim get up.  Despite the appearance of possibly looking as though I'm straight out of Dallas, the all-denim look is actually quite appealing to me.  The combination of pairing together various denims with a block heel sandal and favorite fedora keep it chic without the whole "cowboy Lynsee" feel.  One can't possibly sustain wearing an entire denim outfit consisting of the same pattern of denim, so my conclusion is to incorporate various textures and colors.  

Upon completion of shooting this post (and attempting to shield myself from random peepers peering down on the rooftop of this building), I started thinking of other variations of head-to-toe denim that would be equally favorable.  How would you wear it?

While I live in Miami Beach, I legitimatelly have been rocking black monochromatic looks quite often lately.  Despite the immediate sweat-induced weather, there's something classic about an all-black look that I love so much.  There's also something to be said about not wearing a bra, ever.  I'm not burning my bras or anything, but it does feel quite fantastic.  In combination with the whole braless phase, my take on a tux for women also occurred.  Typically, a full piece tux would require meticulously checking to make sure everything is in place and tucked in.  However, this particular look works well enough to handle the face-melting heat without feeling as though I'm sweating my life away through every pore.  

Although the Northerners may question my lack of certain undergarment pieces through the dressing routine, this is the result of suffering 90 degree heat each and every day.

I've never been much of a denim jean-wearing lady, as it's pretty rare to find the right fitting pair of pants that cover the width of my hips while maintaining a balance at the waist.  In lieu of of continuing on this never-ending retail mission, I've finally found the pants of my dreams.  Designed with comfort for travel, Anatomie's Skyler Skinny Pant legitimately fits like a glove without feeling as though the pants are going to suck the life out of you.  They are made of an ultra light-weight nylon-lycra micro fiber fabric, which is incredible to walk and move around in.  Admittedly, the first time I opened up the package to find the pants I was a little nervous that they were going to be too small.  The exact opposite occurred, and they actually fit to each body type. 

Who knew that there was a magical pair of pants made just for me?  

My personal style has found itself in crop tops, skirts, and an array of high heels to attempt to make me appear taller than my 5'5" frame towers in the air.  We all know I'm not much of a pants person, but these may have just changed my mind.  Give me a little more time and you may find me in Birkenstocks and overalls.

Since my lifetime of residing in Miami, it is around this time of the year that I consequently wear crop tops day and night.  As personal protocol, I have not left my condo without throwing on one of these shoulder-baring, abdominal highlighting pieces.  Although the standard theory for a "little black dress" is every breathing woman's go-to outfit selection past 8 P.M., I've exercised a permutation that is sexy enough to stop a little traffic but wearable during the day.  

The symmetry and proportions of this particular crop top pair quite well with a draped skater skirt (which I have been perpetually wearing on a regular basis).  The ab-baring piece is also quite flattering for my fellow smaller-chested friends, as it accentuates the shape with a deep slit.  Oh, and Beyonce wore this same top.  Winning.

Let's face it, women are exquisite creatures.  By exquisite, of course I mean never having anything to wear amongst a closet full of clothes, eating dark chocolate and greasy pizzas while crying over dramatized life events, and complaining about their bloating season every month.  Therefore, I am here to highlight how ladies can simply solve the ongoing battle of what to wear and how to wear it without getting millions of befuddled glares as to why you're wearing such an elusive outfit.  

Despite today's pop culture and Instagram fashion, one can actually go through life wearing what reflects one's style and personality without replicating what every celebrity in the universe has on during the Teen Choice Awards or otherwise equivalent red carpet event.  Whether or not you're fascinated by the fashion world, or believe that you have a sense of personal style, what you throw on that day defines your creativity (without the judgment from any onlookers or ogling men).

In lieu of sticking to the "safe" approach to what you wear every morning, try stepping outside of the comfort zone and expressing a little personal style by switching things up.  Don't get me wrong, if you feel comfortable wearing basic tees, sweatpants and no bra every day, then by all means go ahead.  But don't dress for the rest of the world simply for the sake of what people may perceive you to be.  If you're comfortable in your own skin, go on with a confident approach to what you wear as well.  After all, it won't kill you to try something new.

Aside from about a billion reasons why I love New York City, there's much to be said about Summers in the city as well.  Shifting from the sweltering Miami heat to much more breathable air along with rooftop views of beautiful highrise architecture, sunlight peaking through the tallest buildings, and endless people hurriedly wandering the streets of NYC, truly feels like you're in the center of the world (if even for a moment).  On the opposite side of the spectrum, basking in the rooftop glory in the city is quite a change of speed in comparison to New York Fashion Week's bloody cold weather.

During my NYC experience with Marriott Hotels, I discovered a gem atop the Courtyard Marriott New York Manhattan/Herald Square.  The Scandinavian-chic décor of Monarch is one of the intricate details of the rooftop lounge, encompassing an indoor lounge with a seductive allure, Vintage bricks, glass doors, teak and grey custom Terrazzo tiles, and accents of true Manhattan elegance.  Let's just say with 5,000 square feet on the 18th floor and a photographic view of iconic Empire State Building, all possible thoughts of doubt or stress go completely out the window (if there were any).

Stripes and Snakeskin.

If you're anything like me, then you have undoubtedly tried to magically conclude a solution for a comfortable look that doesn't involve "mom" jeans and a scrunchy.  Cue the flashing lights because I discovered the glamorized sneaker of my dreams - and it's coated in a snakeskin print with regimented studs.  Interestingly, I was perusing the epic Macy's in Herald Square when I spotted these beauties upon walking about 15 miles in barely-there sandals.  The snakeskin printed sneakers gloriously gave me that "come hither" look and it was a bittersweet ending. 

Stripes are also all-the-rage right now, but usually rocking stripes can go one of two ways.  They can either be the most flattering or obviously ridiculous pattern to wear - the trick is to opt for pieces with vertical prints that fit loosely and leave a little breathing room.  Obviously, wearing a skin-tight striped dress will highlight every possibly protruding part on the body.  Now that I've speculated the stripes syndrome, when taking a closer look you can see that this flowing top is indeed laced with vertical stripes.  Paired with scalloped shorts and bold accessories keeps the look effortless yet chic.  Live on, chic moms throughout the world, live on.

As far as my closet is concerned, Summer days of fully clothed abdominal areas and legs are few and far between.  Despite a sartorial catastrophe of reliving the 90's trend, I've managed to discover a chic approach to rocking a crop top without looking like Kelly Kapowski in all of her Saved By The Bell glory.  We've shifted to a monochromatic look, guys.  Let's do this.

In efforts to accredit my fellow small-chested women, crop tops seemingly work quite well with the boob-unfortunate.  There's nothing obstructing the downward path while throwing it on over head, and might possibly go in the books as the quickest fashion piece to slap on.  To counteract my lacking in the chest area, I've combatted it with a silky high-slit maxi skirt that consequently feels like I'm barely wearing any clothes.  This may require an occasional, am I still wearing bottoms, glare from time to time, but it just might be the most comfortable piece of clothing that I own.  While many of us don't have the satisfaction of sporting DD's, abdominal areas and legs are the next best points to accentuate.  

Combining this look with an early morning P90X workout and abdominal circuit, the viewer can't possibly notice the chest area.  Winning.

PS. If you didn't see my last post, I'm giving away a trip to Hawaii and more with Tommy Bahama.  It's in your best interest to enter here.

How to: Relax in a Day + Win a Trip to Hawaii

Summer is all about relaxing, despite some of our shortcomings in physically being able to take a break from work or school, and simply be.  Nonetheless, everyone needs a little R&R periodically to reset.  Therefore, I'm teaming up with Tommy Bahama to showcase some of my favorite ways to relax in one day (you can relax for one day - nobody will tell the relaxation police).

8:30 AM / Despite my ridiculous inability to sleep past 6 AM on any given day of the week, Sundays are my days for rest.  Beginning a day of relaxation obviously requires a delicious cool smoothie and an inspirational book, and a Tommy Bahama Chillax recipe is just the fix.  Rather than opting for a coffee (although I pretty much live for it), this mango and coconut-infused smoothie gives an island escape vibe for the entire day.  It could also be mixed with rum, but an 8:30 AM cocktail may be a little too much relaxing just yet.

9:30 AM / Migrate to the bathroom for a little skin therapy - there's something about applying an anti-stress facial mask and Lancome's exfoliating cream all over my body that instantly relaxes everything.  Perusing through my e-mail inbox and scrolling past Instagram selfies has never been so tranquil.

10:30 AM / Select an outfit for the day that consists of barely-there bikini bottoms and a matching top of course.  Anything else would be uncivilized.  After all, National Relaxation Day is August 15th so that's the excuse that I'm going with for rocking a bikini all day, every day, up until then.

1 PM / By now, switching to a beach or poolside lounge chair has probably taken place.  Take some time to clear your mind, rub a little tanning oil on the body, read a good book, and bask in all of this relaxing glory.

3 PM / It's probably considered happy hour somewhere, so now would be a good time to add a little rum into that Tommy Bahama Chillax smoothie.  I opted for non-alcoholic, but feel free to spice it up!

The Chillax Recipe: 
1 ½ parts Cruzan® Mango Rum (optional)
¾ parts Cruzan® Vanilla Rum (optional)
1 part Mango purée
1 part Coco Lopez
1 ½ parts Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Shake over ice and immediately strain over cubed ice or blend it up for a deliciously refreshing beverage.

4 PM / By this time, I'm ultimately ravished and craving either chocolate or another snack that is equally healthy enough for me.  In an attempt to combine the two, I concocted probably the most epic snack of all time: Cookies n' cream popcorn.  Shut the front door.  It's even kid-friendly (tested and approved by my toddler).  The recipe for this will be on my YouTube channel.

8 PM / Wrap up the day with a lavender foot soak and run a hot bubble bath, accompanied with a Lush bath bomb for utter relaxation.  There's something about the scent of lavender and jasmine that feels ritzy and comforting to the soul.  Wonder what you accomplished for the day, and realize that it's been one hell of a relaxing day.
