Oddly enough, I rarely wear jeans (which I briefly discussed in a previous post) for the mere fact that my hips are wide and I find it utterly difficult find a pair of jeans that fit my frame just right.  Lo and behold, I do wear them on occasion.  Aside from the typical casual affair that goes hand-in-hand with wearing denim jeans, part of restyling pieces includes changing their average role completely.  Therefore, dressing up jeans seems appropriate at all times.  Rather than throwing a baggy t-shirt and tennis shoes on, which sounds dreamy, perhaps wearing a flared tube top and skyscraper heels may be applied.  

The flared top adds a feminine aspect without making the hips look gargantuan, while the skyscraper heels prevent me from looking like an oompa loompa.   What's your preference for styling denim - casual or dressed up?

What I'm rocking:
Top by ZARA (similar style here)
Jeans by Bebe (similar style here)
Shoes by ZARA (similar style here)
Sunglasses by Gucci (similar style here)
Watch ℅ La Mer Collections (similar style here)

The minimalism of piecing together black and white pieces seems to be a recent unintentional addiction of mine, as it's been circulating quite often in my daily wardrobe.  I'm also quite obsessed with this Topshop crop top, so if it happens to make a cameo appearance on the blog more than usual, now you know why.  I love the way the V-cut of the top adds a feminine appeal that would otherwise be replaced with apparent cleavage or something of that sort (right?).  

To contrast the edge of the black crop top and frayed shorts, I paired it with a delicate lace cardigan that oddly enough serves as a top.  Its typical role would be layered over a camisole and zipped in the back, but fashion has no rules so this happened.  

What I'm Rocking:
Cardigan by ZARA
Top by Topshop
Shorts by Urban Outfitters
Shoes by Steve Madden
Bracelet ℅ Alex and Ani

Team of Two with Honey Maid



Let's face it – Summer is coming to a close, but beach days in Miami occur pretty much every day of the week. If I could live on a private beach or island, keep my feet in the sand, and eat endless snacks with my son, my life would be complete. Therefore, I'm teaming up with Honey Maid to highlight some of my family's favorite wholesome snacks for everyday beach trips (since I clearly take trips to the beach Monday through Friday).  As a single mom, sometimes it's not always easy being a "Team of Two" but we make it happen.  From making him a wholesome breakfast, snacks and lunch, playing with race cars, chasing him around, and teaching him to swim, it's all worth it.  No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will.

Whenever my son and I plan a beach trip, I like to create little “bento boxes” of wholesome, nutritious snacks that we both love. I think it's fair to say that pretty much every child loves Honey Maid graham crackers, since life began. Therefore, we throw some fresh fruit, raisins, graham crackers, and cheese into bento boxes for a delicious oceanside treat.

What are some of your favorite wholesome snacks?

As the end of Summer nears its dreadful departure, two thoughts come to mind - it's time to switch up the workout routine and my face should no longer melt off when I step outside.  Therefore, I'm teaming up with Target® C9 to share my favorite ways to remain active toward the end of Summer and beginning of Fall.  Since Miami tends to cool down slightly post-Summer, it gives me the opportunity to do a variety of outdoor activities such as going for a run or doing a little yoga by the beach.  Although if you know me well enough, it's apparent that I usually do a Beachbody workout in-home.  When the seasons change over, I like to dive into a different program though. 

Lately, I've been quite fond of P90X3 since it allows me to refrain from being soaked in the heat while Summer ends and it's also something that I can do within 30 minutes while still taking care of my little guy at home. What are some of your favorite activities that you keep you fit while transitioning seasons?

In the midst of sweating off every inch of my body in unbearable heat, I stumbled upon this garment creation.  Although I've been living in crop tops and denim shorts all Summer, occasionally I switch it up with skirts of course.  I wore this particular look while out scouting preschools for my little guy (it may appear as though it's a tad bit overdressed but it was the only outfit that allowed my body to breathe).  Nonetheless, throwing warm and neutral tones into my wardrobe was much needed after living in black and white combinations over the past month.  

Indeed, wearing bright colors can be somewhat overkill.  Hence, white heels and a nude skirt to even it all out.  Voila.  

What I'm rocking:
Top ℅ Newd Clothing
Skirt by Cotton On
Shoes by ZARA
Watch by Guess
Sunglasses by Gucci

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?

What I'm rocking:
Top ℅ Mavi
Shorts by Garage
Shoes by Tahari
Watch by Guess
Hat ℅ ASOS

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.  

What I'm rocking:
Vest by Express
Pants by Express
Shoes by ZARA
Necklace by ALDO
Sunglasses by Gucci

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.  

What I'm rocking:
Top from Boutique
Pants ℅ Anatomie
Shoes by ALDO
Bracelet by Kate Spade
Rings by Topshop
