Cadillac CTS Vsport

If looks could kill, the new Cadillac CTS Vsport just caused a massacre.

After driving this beauty during a recent "stay-cation" in Miami,  it's apparent that the CTS Vsport became a newfound addiction.  From its LED lighting to elegantly designed exterior to its revved up engines, every inch of this automobile reflects luxury and class.  With atmospheric control, Cadillac CUE and its media control system, this is the kind of vehicle that caters to its driver personally.  Of course, my favorite aspect of the Vsport driving experience is the performance of going from 0 to 60 in a matter of 4.4 seconds.  Believe it or not, I love feeling the power of a car when I push that gas pedal.  Thus, the Cadillac CTS Vsport is beautifully crafted.

Pampered by Aveda Seven Seas Spa

"Aveda Seven Seas Spa & Salon is one of my go-to beauty pampering spots, for the mere fact that I feel like Queen Lynsee upon entering their facility."

In lieu of spending Memorial Day Weekend in South Beach madness, I enjoy a little pampering off the island.  Aveda Seven Seas Spa & Salon is one of my go-to beauty pampering spots, for the mere fact that I feel like Queen Lynsee upon entering their facility.  The entire staff is welcoming, from the valet service to the hair stylist(s) inside the salon.  On my most recent visit, I was treated to a full day of beauty relaxation with a 50-minute Elemental Nature Massage (which was the best I've received in awhile).  Let's be honest, I'm one of those people with a terrible back and questionable posture at times.  The masseuse at Seven Seas had the strength of Incredible Hulk, with the ability to de-stress immediately.

In addition to a massage, I also opted to get my hair blow dried and styled at the Style Bar along with an Elemental Nature Manicure and Pedicure.  On top of that, the champagne was flowing.  Nobody can possibly complain about that.  Right?

How to be a Stylish Mom: 5 Tips to Chic

It has always been assumed that at some point in my life I would birth a child, but I never expected the journey to be as rewarding as it has been.  Of course, once you take on the role of being Super-mom, it's inevitable that it's not exactly going to be the easiest job, but it's all worth it.  However, becoming a mom doesn't mean that your sense of style goes out the window.  Let's face it, you can still be hot and a mom.  There's no rules to this.  

My five tips for how to be a stylish mom are:

1) Opt for a chic oversized bag rather than a diaper bag
2) Wear clothing that flatters your body type, rather than elastic waisted mom jeans and sweatshirts
3) A little black dress can go a long way
4) Add bold statement jewelry to a basic white tee and skinny jeans for a polished look
5) If you are wearing minimal makeup, try a bold lip for a pop of color

Although bouncing around in workout clothes all day is fun and all, I enjoy the aspect of putting together a polished look to make grocery store runs (because who doesn't shop at Whole Foods in embellished heels?).  Don't get me wrong, I definitely have my off-duty mom days, but it's not an everyday cycle.  And being a Miami-based fashion blogger / mama, crop tops are still part of my sartorial elegance, whether anybody likes them or not.  In 90-degree weather, I enjoy breathing.

My three-year-old son, Taejin, also lives in sleeveless shirts and denim shorts regularly.  He also has a  continuous addiction to hats, lots of hats, and Ray Bans.

Black Mesh + Sexy Maxi Skirt

Now that 100-degree season has hit Miami, I've gone back to my usual Summer fashion routine of not wearing a bra.  In lieu of rocking an over-the-shoulder boulder holder, it's become apparent that mesh bodysuits and high-slit maxi skirts are much more comfortable and breathable.  This is a look that can also transition from a day to night look by adding a little jewelry and a leather jacket for a chic rebel look.  Additionally, black is the notorious must-have color for an effortlessly chic look for the ultimate fashion sheath.  Sultry sheer pieces and all-black ensembles took over the Spring Summer 2015 runway as well.
