Casual Monday Sweatshirt + Skinnies.

Although I enjoy putting together glam looks, occasionally a comfy and casual sweatshirt with jeans is needed.  I've really been loving this geometric printed Pencey sweatshirt from Rhythm of Grace, which features contrasting raglan sleeves and fits to perfection.  Christina Minasian, former Kitson buyer and celebrity stylist, designs Pencey's feminine silhouettes with edgy detailing for a standout look.

Paired with the ultimate oversized satchel by Dareen Hakim, this is an outfit that combines both chic and casual for a daytime look.  The fine Italian leather of this bag and the unique shape makes it a beautiful piece that I like to complete a simple look with.

Perhaps some other ladies can relate with me, but I tend to have a hard time finding denim jeans that fit me well and don't cut off my circulation.  However, these James jeans are completely comfortable as they stretch to my body shape and fit like a glove.  The gold detailing is subtle, but elegant.  To make this look a little more polished, I added a thick cuff at the bottom of the jeans to showcase the back of these BCBG open-toe heels as well.

The Short Suit.

A girl can never have enough gold, right?  There is something about the combination of black and gold that entices my eye and creates a polished look.  "Menswear" is trending for fall, so for today's look I decided to play around with textures and put together a short suit with this blazer by Bebe and loafer heels by Me Too from Hautelook.

I've been loving the brocade print, which is a class of rich and decorative shuttle-woven fabrics made with interweaving layers of silk and metallic thread.  I wore this outfit to the Bloomingdale's event that I mentioned in my previous "How to Style Denim" post, so I paired the blazer with shorts by F21.

Since I was attending a daytime event, I kept my accessories pretty minimal with a gold watch by Guess and an oversized clutch by Steve Madden.

Effortless in Alice & Trixie.

Despite the cool weather that everyone else gets the pleasure of experiencing currently, I have been attempting to maintain sanity in the sweltering heat.  Just kidding - I love the warm weather here.  One of my go-to daytime outfits is a loose-fitting silk tank and bold, printed shorts like these Alice & Trixie Vicki High Waisted Shorts from Rhythm of Grace.  I really love the vibrant pattern and scalloped cut of them, which give it an effortlessly chic look.

This look is easy, breezy, and completely comfortable for days when I'll be running around or a quick lunch meeting.  Since my shorts are bold, I decided to pair them with a Blaque Label silk top because it's the perfect basic staple.

Video: How to Style Denim featuring Bloomingdale's


Over the weekend, I was invited by Frankie B Jeans to view the Fall 2013 collection available at Bloomingdale's department stores.  Daniella Clark, the beautiful woman behind this edgy and sexy denim line, was at Bloomingdale's Aventura showcasing her new pieces while guests mingled and sipped on Cosmopolitan or chocolate martinis.  Daniella launched Frankie B. in 1999, and its authenticity and legitimacy as the glam gal's go-to denim collection quickly solidified.

Her denim collection features studded detailing, textures, vibrant prints and colors, as well as the most unbelievably comfortable material!  After trying them on for the first time, I couldn't believe how good they felt.  Denim is a versatile material that can be dressed up or down for various occasions.

50 Shades of Blue.

Hailing from the United Kingdom, one of my favorite new designers is Three Floor who creates some of the most delicate and whimsical pieces.  Three Floor, named "brand to watch" by Vogue, combines edge and femininity by creating effortless silhouettes for women.  After discovering this beautiful cobalt "Shades of Blue" dress at Rhythm of Grace boutique, I absolutely fell in love with it.

Everything from the lace and mesh detailing to the seamless opening on the back of the dress screams "I am Woman", and it's right on trend with the cobalt shade splashed all over.  I'm also loving the grosgrain waistband that cinches at the waist and adds an ultra feminine aspect.

The Three Floor "Shades of Blue" dress is the perfect date night dress that can be paired with some simple nude heels, but I opted for a little more glitz by pairing it with my ZARA embellished shoes.  Rhythm of Grace also carries the China Blue Dress and Mischief Dress by Three Floor, which have a similar look and feel as this particular dress shown above.

Sporty Chic Look + a GIVEAWAY to Meet Jillian Michaels & Shaun T (CLOSED)

Although my outfits are typically dressed up, I decided to play around with the sporty look and feel for today's look of the day.  Focusing on these paneled House of Dion pants, I went for a more structured approach by cinching layered tops at the waist with a leather belt by ASOS.  The cinched belt adds a feminine touch that creates a balance between sporty and chic.

This look is really great for those who have a smaller frame because it accentuates the top and hip area to give a curvaceous appeal.  My inspiration for this look derives from my love for health and fitness, which I really wanted to merge into a uniform outfit.  Pairing a sporty piece such as paneled pants, a sporty skirt or shorts with a feminine top can really create a polished look.

Style By Lynsee on Instagram

I typically spend my Sunday mornings on my balcony, nibbling on fresh fruit (and of course, who doesn't eat their fruit on a gold plate?)

Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a private invite from Calypso St. Barth to preview their latest collection and devour a delicious light brunch inside their Bal Harbour location.  This shot was taken in the dressing room, as I was trying on my favorite new pieces!

Calypso St. Barth has beautiful home decor!  One of my guilty pleasures is browsing home decor items online or via Pinterest.
Morning ritual: Black coffee in my silk robe.  Oh yeah.

One of my favorite new nail trends for the fall season that repeats itself from last year: Oxblood.

This photo shoot at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden was so much fun, and a beautiful venue.
I've been hearing so much about this new water that Whole Foods carries, alkaline fulvic trade mineral infused water by blk.  I was a little hesitant to try it at first, but it ended up tasting exactly like.....water.  Who knew?!
A new runway hair trend that I've been playing with lately, after seeing designers such as Rebecca Minkoff showcasing it at New York Fashion Week, braids.

It started out as a Sunday ritual, but turned into an everyday ritual: Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks!!

Throwback.  I was such a classy little girl, huh?
