Now that the Fourth of July is right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about what to wear for the occasion that will not only be comfortable but chic throughout the day.  One of my Summer staple pieces is a romper because it can be dressed up with a pair of heels or worn a little more casual.  For a Summer cookout, I like to throw on a lightweight romper like this one from ATIKSHOP, and some block-heel sandals for a look that is effortless and completely wearable.

It's dreadfully hot where I reside, so this romper comes in handy when I feel like walking around naked but need to wear clothes (obviously).  I also add a shoulder or cross-body bag for an easygoing handbag that won't weigh too much since I'll probably be moving around quite a bit and playing with my little guy.  A bag like this also makes the legs appear slightly longer, as it hits right below the length of the romper.

As for accessories, I keep it pretty light with a nude wrap watch and braided belt to cinch the romper at my waist.

Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. Gap opened its Lincoln Road doors on June 20th for a massive fashion house that was well worth the wait. Although I missed the grand opening of the new Gap store, I had a chance to drop by the epic re-design this week and absolutely fell in love with it. The two-story store is complete with a variety of products for men, women, and children, including GapFit, GapMaternity and GapBody. Upon entering the store, of course there is a palm tree light installation to highlight the reflective city. Additionally, there are multiple photo installations inspired by local Instagram influencers that can be seen throughout the store with "Hello Miami" stamped on them.

Another aspect of this Gap store that I love is that women's, GapFit and children's clothing departments are all under one roof whereas they were separated into two different stores before the redesign. This makes shopping with my little guy so much easier (and more spacious).

Everything about the new Gap store on Lincoln Road screams Miami, including the glass structure which allows an immense amount of sunlight to shine throughout the entire store. Carlos and Jackie Touzet of Touzet Studio did an incredible job on the new design of Gap's Lincoln Road storefront, but don't simply take my word for it. You have to check it out for yourself!

For more photos and buzz from the Lincoln Road grand opening, check out the Gap Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube outlets or www.gap.com.

When you stop in the store, snap a pic and post it on Instagram with the tag #HelloLincolnRoad and tag me @StyleByLynsee! I'd love to check out how your visit went :)

As I reflect on the past year, I can't help but appreciate where life has brought me and be grateful for all of the positivity surrounding me.  Surprisingly enough, this is the first birthday where I don't have a massive celebration planned.  I think as we grow older, we find peace in the simplest moments and become obliged to a healthy and happy life.

For my birthday this year, I'm keeping it cool and breezy with a sporty crop top and floral midi skirt with my favorite strappy white heels.  I love mixing sporty and feminine pieces for a wearable look that I can throw on for day or night.  Midi skirts tend to be a little tricky for me because I am not very tall, so often times they make me appear like an oompa-loompa (objects in mirror may appear shorter than they really are).  To get around this, I pair it with a crop top and strappy or nude heels to elongate the body.

For a refreshing trip away from the sweltering heat, I escaped to The Sanctuary Hotel in the city that never sleeps.  New York City always has a special place in my heart, as I love trekking through the city's endless destinations, restaurants, shopping, and so much more.  However, this particular trip was extra special because my little guy made the journey with me.

Upon arriving to The Sanctuary Hotel, their incredible staff greeted us with a generous welcome to New York City (complete with freshly baked cookies and a sweet note waiting in the hotel room).  One of their services that I absolutely loved is the S.T.A.R. Experience Program, which is a specialized five-star service that stands for Service Tailored to Any Request.  

Whether I needed endless help lugging my son's stroller or shopping bags from Toys R' Us, reservations at one of their restaurants, delivery of packages that were sent to the hotel or advice on where to take my son, they made the entire experience seamless.  We were within walking distance to all attractions such as Broadway shows, Times Square, FAO Schwarz, Central Park, Sprinkles Cupcake ATM (yes, this exists), Union Square Park, Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and the list goes on.

Each morning we enjoyed a complimentary gourmet breakfast at Tender Restaurant & Lounge, which is decked out with plush banquettes and solid walnut tables for beautiful decor.  In the evenings,  their Haven Rooftop Lounge is exceptional for a beautiful atmosphere surrounded by the city skyline.  The food was not only delicious, but they offered gluten-free and healthy options as well.  


After dining at Haven Rooftop Lounge in the Sanctuary Hotel (New York City) and trying delicious dishes made by Chef Madison Belem, a little Summer cuisine inspiration sparked.  Chef Madison Belem designed a French-inspired menu for the restaurant which includes delectable bites such as the Tuna Tower (tuna tartare with crispy wontons and sesame dressing), Fish Tacos, with a Crab and Avocado Palette.  Located in the heart of Manhattan, Haven offers a stunning view overlooking New York City while enjoying a glass of Sanctuary Sangria.  Inspired by Chef Madison Belem's amazing dishes, here's a spin on some favorites from Haven Rooftop Lounge.

Tuna Tower: 
1-1/2 pounds sushi-grade Yellowfin tuna
1 Tbsp. lime juice
2 Tbsp. sesame oil
2 tsp. soy sauce or Liquid Aminos
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 minced scallion
1 ripe avocado, diced
1 tsp. sesame seeds
2-4 Wonton wrappers, baked (or fried)

Dice the tuna into 1/8-inch pieces and place in a bowl.  In a smaller bowl, combine the sesame oil, lime juice, soy sauce and hot sauce together.  Pour the sesame dressing over the tuna and fold in salt, pepper, and avocado until well incorporated.  To assemble the tuna tartare, place a baked or fried wonton wrapper on a plate and stack the tuna mixture on top.  Sprinkle with scallion and sesame seeds.  Add the other wonton wrapper and devour.

Sanctuary Sangria:
1 oz CÎROC Peach vodka
1 oz red wine
.5 oz Hennessy
.5 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
.5 oz simple syrup (cane sugar + water, boiled and cooled)
Serve over ice.

All in all, this was one of my most memorable trips to New York City.  In addition to an amazing experience with The Sanctuary Hotel, my son was able to discover new territory as well.  If you are planning a trip to the Big Apple, make sure you stay at The Sanctuary Hotel located at 132 W. 47th Street in New York City.  For a S.T.A.R. experience, ask for Brandon!

Maxi skirts are so versatile and wearable for any season or body shape, believe it or not.  As a not-so-heightened woman (roughly 5'5"), I rarely thought I could pull off wearing a maxi skirt because the length would complicate trying to actually walk without tripping over myself.  However, a maxi skirt can be dressed up with a lightweight white blouse and nude pumps for a classic and chic Summer look that is also unbelievably comfortable.

This blouse by BCBGMAXAZRIA is one of my favorite pieces due to its layering in the front, but the back actually elongates to the calves when it is pulled out.  However, I tucked it in underneath my skirt for a more polished outfit.

Lately, I've been living in bikinis and kimonos due to the ever-so-confused Miami Beach weather.  One moment it will be dreadfully scorching hot to the point that I don't want to wear any clothes, and the next second it appears that Mother Nature has taken a turn for the worse.  Therefore, my basics are a simple black bikini paired with denim shorts and block-heel sandals.  A kimono is not only a trendy piece, but it also serves as a versatile lightweight jacket.

I've also been rocking these bracelets by RUBBS with almost every outfit that I throw on.  These rubber accessories are designed specifically for their purpose: comfort.  As a woman with a small wrist who can barely find bracelets that stay on throughout the day, I love these because I can wear them anywhere and they also have edgy hardware added for a beautiful design aspect.

The anticipated re-opening of Gap in Lincoln Road's open-air mall is officially going to occur on June 20th. Offering an array of options for everything, the new Miami Beach store will expand to an assortment of women's, GapFit, GapMaternity, as well as men's, GapKids, babyGap and GapBody. In other words, it's pretty much going to be the mecca of all Gap stores. The two-level store boasts 19,000 square feet of beautiful glass encompassed space complimented by a locally inspired coral-studded limestone exterior.

Aside from its gorgeous design by Carlos and Jackie Touzet, the new store also has some great swag for customers on grand opening day!  A customizable tote will be given to those who make a purchase of $75 or more, which is printed with imagery from some of Miami's top Instagram socialites. Therefore, customers will be able to add their own personal flair to the tote at store kiosk printing stations between June 20th and June 22nd. All in all, it will be a fun-filled grand opening with goodies and plenty of new Summer fashion pieces to check out so make sure to stop by.

Gap's new location can be found at 1001 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, Florida and the store hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday as well as 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

If you stop by the opening, snap a photo of your tote bag and post on Instagram with the hashtag #HelloLincolnRoad to @StyleByLynsee and @Gap so we can see your chic designs!

Bikini Slim Down Results with DeliverLean

For those who don't know, I began a "Bikini Slim Down" with DeliverLean about one month ago and the benchmark is almost up for completion.   This can only mean one thing - it's time to share my results.  Let me preface this by stating that I am only sharing my results to give readers an idea of what to expect from eating clean with DeliverLean's meal plan and living a healthy lifestyle.  Additionally, staying active is added into the mix of a slim down because the pair go hand in hand.

DIET
My meal plan with DeliverLean primarily consisted of pescatarian and vegan options with no gluten.  Cold-pressed OnJuice juices and raw desserts were also added to my plan, which made it even better.




A typical day of my meal plan:
Breakfast - Cultured coconut yogurt parfait with organic granola, mango, blueberries and raw cashews
Lunch - Candy corn salad with corn, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, hearts of palm and vinaigrette
Dinner - Herb mahi scallopine, quinoa cake and lemon dijon kale
Dessert - Gluten-free molten chocolate lava cake

WORKOUT REGIMEN
Each morning, I performed a P90X3 workout (30 minutes) followed by 200 squats and a walk to the park with my little guy.  I also incorporated ab-focused exercises in the evenings, such as Tone It Up.

SLIM DOWN TIPS
1) Drink a glass of water upon waking up to speed up metabolism
2) Drink a detoxifying tea in the evening


RESULTS
Over the span of a month, I slimmed and toned my body while losing 2 inches in my waistline and about 8 pounds.
