It’s about that time again – back to school season has begun! Aside from new beginnings, friendships and memories, the much anticipated “first day of school outfit” must be chosen at least two weeks in advance (or maybe that was just me prior to my first day of school). Preparing for the first day of school can be both exciting and nerve-wrecking all at once, so I put together a lookbook of a few of my foolproof outfits for the first week of school.
Comfort is a key factor in choosing a look for school since there is plenty of walking and moving around throughout the day. Rocking 5-inch heels to school is probably not the best idea. My first look provides a summer pop of color, but remains fairly casual with a chunky sweater and bold patterned shorts.
What I’m Rocking:
Bal Harbour Shops is an open-air shopping mall known globally for its luxury retail stores and exceptional sales. Located in an affluent area in Miami Beach, Bal Harbour Shops is ranked no. 1 in the world for productivity based on sales per square foot. I recently had the pleasure of attending an Alice + Olivia event for Saks Fifth Avenue at the Bal Harbour location, which provided an opulent moment to snap photos of the look that I rocked on that day.
Housing top luxury brands such as Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Tory Burch, Audemars Piguet and Louis Vuitton, the upscale mall carries a posh atmosphere that resonates throughout the entire space. I decided to wear a classic, yet comfortable outfit that wasn’t too over the top. My top is an embellished fabric with a bit of glitz so I kept my other pieces fairly basic to balance everything out.
What I rocked:

As one of the main highlights of the Spring/Summer 2013 runways, metallic clothing is shining with a fresh rendition of new fashion. Combining pastels with leathers and high-shine textures creates a nostalgic effect that leaves an endless fashion statement. I know what you may be thinking – aren’t metallics for space age suits or Sci-fi movies? No. Finding a balance between elegance and a casual relaxed look is key to embracing the metallic trend.
Metallics pair well with confidence, a relaxed attitude, feminine pieces, basic black, and bold hues. Silver metallics have a fundamental element that remains classic and adds an extra level of contrast to a variety of looks, reaching cutting-edge levels of polish with a futurist twist .

As a leader in the Spanish-language fashion and beauty editorial world, Cosmopolitan en Español kicked off the summer season with its annual Beach Bash hosted by Editor-in-Chief Ana Victoria Taché at Nikki Beach Miami. Presenting sponsors included Splat, Samsara Imports and L.A. Colors Cosmetics.
Nikki Beach was the ideal location to host a beach bash, with its open beach space venue along with day beds and teepees to create a relaxing atmosphere. Aside from the fabulous location, guests were greeted pleasantly while snapping photographs in front of the Cosmopolitan Beach Bash step-and-repeat. The cocktail party was designed for fun and fearless women, featuring a Splat Hair Chalk beauty/hair bar, cosmetics application by L.A. Colors Cosmetics, and alcohol-infused cupcakes by Sweet & Tipsy.

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.
