Tribal.

One of my favorite fashion trends for the summer is showing off a little abdomen, and Miami has the perfect weather for such an outfit.  Actually, the weather is so hot that wearing no clothes at all would seem perfectly normal in my mind (although my body would not agree).  For today's look of the day I paired a cropped bustier from the Spring 2013 "Forever LA" collection with a pair of high-waisted, lightweight pants from H&M's Conscious Collection.  Although I have not been shopping as much at Forever 21 lately, this particular collection caught my eye with its bold and alluring pieces which feature a mix of graphic tribal prints.



According to Grazia Daily, "The Forever LA collection has two parts, the West Side and the East Side. The East Side is inspired by 90s urban Los Angeles style with vintage and alternative style pieces—think Fresh Prince of Bel Air. While the West Side embodies the laid-back vibe of LA with abstract prints, vibrant sneakers and crop tops.”  The face of the Forever LA collection is the timeless beauty, Cassie.

What I'm Rocking:
Cropped Bustier by F21 (Forever LA)
Pants by H&M Conscious Collection
Shoes by Steve Madden
Bracelet by Kate Spade
Bangles by Boutique
Sunglasses by F21
2-Finger Ring by ALDO

Gillette Venus "Step Up and Step Out" Miami Tour Stop


When Venus invited me to a summer glam experience to benefit Step Up Women's Network, what could I possibly say (but yes, please)?  The Gillette Venus "Step Up and Step Out" tour stopped in Miami last week on Lincoln Road, encouraging women to show off their look on the "blue carpet."  For every step taken on the “blue carpet,” Venus donated $1 to Step Up Women’s Network.  

As a philanthropist myself, I am always down to support any cause that empowers women.  Step Up Women's Network is an organization dedicated to igniting women and girls to fulfill their potential, so Gillette Venus invited all of the ladies in Miami out to bring out their inner "Goddess" for this lavish event.

Women were invited to enjoy a luxurious shaving experience, have access to hair and makeup touchup stations, try on the latest spring and summer fashions from Rent the Runway, and strut their personal look on the “blue carpet.”  I had so much fun trying on various high-end designer items from Rent the Runway and walking the "blue carpet."

The shaving experience was luxurious, as I tried out the Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry razor



Touchup stations were complete with CoverGirl products for days!

For those who couldn't attend, you could simply tweet with the hashtag #StepUp and $1 would be donated in your honor.  Other tour stops included New York City, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. 

What I'm Rocking:
Alice by Temperley Dress (Rent the Runway)

ELLE X Island Spiced Event

As an invited guest for the ELLE x Island Spiced "BRIGHTSIDE" event at Miami's own Nikki Beach, I thought it would only be appropriate that you experience the fab event along with me.  The exclusive beach bash introduced a unique collaboration with ELLE (magazine) and Malibu's newest Island Spiced Rum, including custom mixed cocktails such as their Malibu Sparkling Spiced and Spiced Melon.  The added bonus to the latest Caribbean rum is that each serving only has 70 calories!

Miami's hottest socialites and trendsetters sipped on Malibu Island Spiced cocktails while DJ Ruen was on the 1's and 2's in the DJ booth, Carribean hors d'oeuvres were passed, and prizes rewarded to some lucky guests.  Personally, I tend to gravitate to the photo booths of special events for some reason (don't judge me - they are so fun)!
What I rocked:
Cotton On top
Express maxi skirt
Sam & Libby sandals

The Perfect Casual Look for the Summer

One of my favorite items for the summer is my floral shorts, which can be dressed up or down.  In today's look of the day, I put together a casual outfit that I wore over the weekend.  An alternative to dressing these shorts down would be to pair them with a sheer black blouse or peplum top along with some strappy sandal heels or lucite pumps.  Since I was just out running some errands and having brunch, I decided to go for a more casual look that allowed me to stay pretty comfortable.


 What I'm Rocking:
Bag (Gifted from Italy)
Mossimo shoes by Target
Shorts by ZARA
Chambray blouse
Cuff by H&M
