Style by Lynsee Looks of 2013

New Year's is literally right around the corner and something that I enjoy doing is going back into the blog archives to view my style evolution.  Needless to say, it has transformed over time and 2013 has been quite the journey for me.  Nonetheless, it has been another incredible year that I can do nothing but be grateful for each experience that I've encountered and expect only the best to come in the upcoming year.  With each new year comes many more memorable moments.  Be appreciative for what you have, be grateful for each person who has entered (or left) your life, and be patient for what is in store.  Thank you for coming along this journey with me and love you all!  XOXO.

The holidays are one of my favorite times to layer up on clothing and relax with my family with a hot cup of coffee or tea.  Prior to Christmas, I traveled up to the bitter cold to visit my family along with my little man and I surprisingly enjoyed being in cold weather again.  Although I love the southern heat, there's nothing like seeing snow on the ground during the holiday season.  Therefore, I wore plenty of comfy outfits while I was home.

A trend that I've been loving lately is graphic sweatshirts or embellished sweatshirts that can be styled many different ways.  For this look, I layered a denim shirt underneath and let the collar peek out for a casual yet polished look.  It was the perfect outfit, whether I was going outside to play in the snow with my son or simply staying comfortable inside.  I love pairing bold prints together and blending textures, so I rocked a leopard print scarf along with this Phillip Lim sweatshirt.

Punk Inspiration in the Tundra.

 Although I love the warm climate of Miami, I recently flew up north for the holidays to spend time with my family and get a taste of the cold weather.  When I say cold, I don't mean a slight breeze.  As I pried open my eyes this morning and gazed out into the snow covered grass, I couldn't help but cringe at the sight of it.  There's something about the bitter feeling of being slapped in the face with cold when I step outside that doesn't make me scream for joy.  On the other hand, it gives me the opportunity to layer wardrobe pieces and rock my winter boots or jackets.

I typically live in strappy sandal heels and skirts, but I've really been loving the fact that I can wear my winter pieces while I'm traveling for the holidays.  Aside from fashion, the snow on the ground makes it feel much more like the holidays are approaching.  Christmas lights on palm trees just don't express the holidays quite as well.


Lately, my go-to denim has been DL 1961's Emma in Athens jeans which are the perfect fit and provide the most slimming silhouette.  The jeans have more of a legging-jean fit with faux front pockets, which I love because they make legs look slimmer without bulky pockets.

I've also been loving the punk-inspired trend, which I've incorporated in this look by simply wrapping a plaid shirt around my waist along with a graphic top and leather jacket.  It's such a quick and easy way of pulling a look together that is chic yet comfortable.

Happy Friday everyone!  After much Baseling, Miami still came out to attend Trini in Private's annual holiday event that I hosted alongside Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables and L'Oreal.  On December 10th, Miami and Brickell's most elite came out for an evening of beauty, luxury, cuisine and fun.  We began the night with light bites provided by MPP Brickell, Spaghettino, and Brasileiro Miami.  LeSutra sparkling liqueur flowed endlessly, while Birthday Cake and Ice Cream Wines poured up deliciously decadent glasses of wine for all guests.

A special thank you to all of my blogger sisters who came out to show their love and support, in addition to all of you who I met at the event.  It was such an exceptional experience, and I loved meeting all of you!

Located in the heart of Brickell, Trini in Private offers an array of relaxing services and their team caters to your wants and/or needs.  With six locations in Florida, Trini in Private has become the mecca of beauty and salon services.  Prior to the event that I hosted, Trini pampered me with a shampoo, cut and blow dry.  Additionally, my hair was colored with a chocolate gloss and light highlights which I absolutely fell in love with.  I highly recommend going to Marie, who impressed me with her professionalism and skill.  It was the quickest and most efficient hair job that I have ever received, and I rarely trust new technicians with my hair!  

Aside from my hair, Trini also catered to my nails by providing me with a Shellac manicure which was my first time trying this and I don't think I can go back to a regular manicure after this experience.  I've heard so many rave reviews about Shellac, and decided to try it for myself after Trini suggested it.  It dries instantly and doesn't chip for at least 10 days.  If you're like me, you have a toddler, or you don't have all of the time in the world to do your nails, then I suggest trying the Shellac manicure by Trini.

Another gem that I discovered at Trini was their Paraffin treatment that was applied to my feet as a warm wax application that made my feet feel like silk prior to a pedicure.  Let's just say this - it does wonders for the ladies who wear heels often.

Art Basel Brunch with LACOSTE

Amongst the Art Basel chaos in Miami last week, I had quite the relaxing experience with Lacoste for their private blogger brunch held at Cecconi's in Soho Beach House.  Originally debuted in Venice with sisters in London and West Hollywood, Cecconi's is truly an acclaimed Italian dining destination with elegantly delicious food.

Aside from the amazing food and peach bellinis, the purpose of this blogger brunch was to give us a preview of LACOSTE's collaborative art installation that was designed specifically for its Lincoln Road boutique by artist Mark A. Reigelman II.  The installation, titled "Rockodile," drew inspiration from the diet of American crocodiles which consisted of over 5,500 black rocks suspended in the windows of LACOSTE's boutique.  Each rock was made from 100% post-consumer materials and the rocks were illuminated by a phosphorescent green glow in the evening.  From December 5th to December 8th, onlookers could see Reigelman installing his piece during Basel season.

On Sunday, Reigelman also hosted an in-store brunch to showcase the completed work of Rockodile in LACOSTE.  As he mentioned,

"My research focused on American Crocodiles from their history and physical characteristics to their eating and sleeping habits.  I was especially struck by one particular fact: crocodiles eat rocks!  The weight of the rocks, interestingly, assists with swimming, diving and buoyancy.  This contrary notion of floating rocks is the foundation of Rockodile."

Who knew that eating rocks could be so beneficial?  Perhaps we should all consider grubbing on a few rock appetizers here and there.
