Neon Silk and Metallic Accents

What else would I be doing at 11:30pm on a Tuesday night than posting my blog of the day?  For today's OOTD I paired this gem of a top with some sequin shorts and metallic accents.  Combining neon with metallic accents can really make your look pop, or if you aren't as daring you can always choose your preference to add to your look to complete it.  For example, pairing a simple bright top with a neutral maxi skirt can go well with a skinny metallic belt and heels.  Whichever way you choose to dress it up or down, it can ultimately look amazing together.  XOXO.

What I'm wearing:
Cotton On blouse
Express shorts
ALDO clutch
Anne Klein watch
F21 earrings
China Glaze nail polish
ESSIE nail polish

Rows of Bows

Happy Monday, beauties (and gents)!  It was another weekend in Miami filled with beautiful weather, so I can't complain too much about my weekend.  For today's OOTD, I'm showcasing this steal that I found at the local vintage market that I mentioned in previous posts before.  On various Sundays, vintage clothing or accessory sellers set up shop on Lincoln Road where anybody can come and purchase items.  There is one that I always stop by and she has some really great finds!  I snagged this one awhile ago, but haven't pulled it out of my closet until now.  It's a black blazer with light pink bow print throughout the outer layer of it.  I paired it with a chiffon black top and my favorite little sequin shorts.  The shoes are from ALDO; however, I removed the generic shoelaces and added my own special touch with some black chiffon pieces. 

What I'm wearing:
Vintage blazer
Arden B blouse
Express shorts
F21 accessories
ALDO booties with custom finish
Sally Hansen nail polish

Friday Favorites: My Top 5 Spring Trends

Happy Friday everyone!  For today's Friday Favorites, I've compiled together some of my top 5 trends for the upcoming season.  Spring is such a beautiful season because the weather is amazing and it allows you to bring out some of your lighter and brighter pieces.  What are some of your favorite trends for the season?

Here are some of my favorite trends:

LEATHER - Adding a leather piece to any outfit can give your look a bit of an edge. 

NEON - Bright and vibrant neon tones can really make any look pop.

MINT - Mint green is a beautiful pastel color that's very trendy this season and it can be as simple as adding minty nail polish to your nails to bring your look together.

DAYTIME CLUTCH - A large or oversized daytime clutch is simple and convenient for this upcoming season. 

COLOR BLOCKING - Combing bold colors together add a bit of brightness to your look, so my spring wardrobe is filled with bright pieces.  I can't wait to pair them together.

Color Pop

One of my favorite rollover trends for this season is color-blocking for the simple fact that various bold colors can look beautiful together.  However, this is not to say that you should throw on every bright piece that you have in your closet.  It's almost like attending art class all over again!  Primary colors, complementary colors, analogous colors, and triadic colors look great together.  Primary includes red, yellow and blue while complementary colors are opposite on the color wheel (i.e. red/green, yellow/purple, orange/blue).  To dive into it a little deeper, analogous colors are typically next to each other (i.e. red, orange, yellow) and triadic colors are evenly spaced on the color wheel (i.e. green, purple, yellow). 

For today's OOTD, I included the analogous colors red (pink), orange and yellow.  I'm very pleased with the outcome!  Let me know what you think.

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 blazer
Express dress
Target belt
Gifted clutch purse

Predator vs. Prey

What I'm wearing:
ZARA snakeskin dress
ALDO heels
American Apparel clutch

Hello loves!  I was so happy to find this dress because I love the fit and the blocked snakeskin pattern.  Also, the nude clutch by American Apparel is so versatile since it can be added to a casual or chic outfit and accented in different ways.  Anyway, enjoy today's post =]

A Diamond is My Best Friend

I thought that I would start off this week with a casual outfit of the day.  This is a typical weekend ensemble that I wear to run errands or go shopping in.  Adding a blazer to an outfit can complete it without much effort.  I've been collecting blazers for some time now and I am continuously searching for colors that I don't have.  Anyway, enjoy the post =]

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovers!  For today's post I decided to showcase some of my favorite health, beauty, home or fashionable items for the week.  These are items that I recently purchased and have been using often or I highly recommend to you.



























Since it's been a little chilly lately, I have been wearing a lot of hats and scarfs and my latest hat fetish includes fedoras.  
























































Those who know me must know that I absolutely love candles, and I probably go through them in two weeks.  Anyway, this peppermint cranberry candle smells so good (available at Target).



























I've been using this ELF eyeshadow palette this past week, and it's great because it has 100 shades in almost every color option.  I also found this beauty at Target for only $10.  They had other palettes for $5 as well.



























This clutch was actually gifted, but I love the detailing and color of it.  It's classic with the gold clasp and chain.  What's also great about it is that the chain can be worn with it as a shoulder bag or removed as a clutch.
























































Since having a baby, I've been very conscience about my diet and work out regimen.  I have been getting a lot of questions regarding what I eat, how I lost my baby weight, and what my work out plan consists of.  I'll post more at a later date, but for now I want to highlight these LUNA nutrition bars.  I LOVE these bars.  They are ideal for women because the calorie content isn't really high, but you still get a high enough amount of protein in each bar.



























Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands.  Lately, I have been switching out these three tones: 1) Buy me a Cameo 2) Clambake and 3) Sand Tropez.  You can purchase Essie at almost any drugstore or generic store.



























Last but not least, these Steve Madden booties are definitely one of my favorites.  The first time I spotted them was while window shopping on Lincoln Road and I knew that I had to have them.  I actually wore these babies for New Year's Eve.  They are extremely comfortable too.

What are some of your favorite items?
