Vintage Finds + My Weekend Recap

Happy Monday everyone!  I've been pretty busy these past few weeks working on an upcoming project so I spent most of the weekend with my son.  The weekends are always enjoyable because it's our "family time" and Sundays are my cheat days where I indulge in yummy food.  I had some mommy time on Friday night, spent a lot of time outside on Saturday, purchased some new phone candy, and spent Sunday on Lincoln Road as usual.

The vintage market is back in season on Lincoln Road so I was uber excited.  I love vintage shopping because you can usually find some really good hidden gems, but it requires some searching.  Check out my weekend photo diary below and tell me what you did over the weekend.

OOTD: The Perfect Daytime Look

Although it's September and the weather is cooling down in various locations, it still remains HOT HOT HOT in Miami (which is one of the reasons why I love this city)!  My hair might not love it so much, but we make it work.

Today's look is the ultimate daytime outfit because it's casual yet still adds a bit of femininity as well.  I combined a lightweight, neon top with a simple pair of denim shorts and cinched it at the waist.  I'm also rocking a pair of chunky heels that are absolutely comfortable so I can run around all day in these babies!  What's your go-to daytime look? 

What I'm wearing:
ZARA tank
Cotton On top
Target belt
F21 shorts
ALDO handbag

Friday Favorites: Labor Day Looks

Is everybody ready for the long Labor Day weekend?  Whether you're going to a family cookout, spending the weekend with your significant other or going out with friends, I have the perfect Labor Day outfits for you!  You can obviously switch up the pieces, depending on what you may have in your closet but this will give you a little insight on what you can pair together.  The saying is that you aren't suppose to wear white after Labor Day, but I say why not break the rules?  Go ahead and wear whatever works with your style.  What will you be wearing this weekend?

Fashion's Night Out Miami 2012: My Night Out Picks

For those of you who won't be in New York for New York Fashion Week, I'm sure you will be celebrating Fashion's Night Out in your local city.  This year I will be in Miami for Fashion's Night Out and I'm excited to check out all of the various events that are going on this year!  If you aren't too familiar with this annual event it takes place on September 6th in different cities throughout the nation where everyone celebrates the largest shopping event of the year.

Lincoln Road Outdoor Mall
Sunglass Hut
Brilliance NY

Bal Harbour Shops
Neiman Marcus
Tory Burch

Aventura Mall
Herve Leger by Max Azria

Special Announcement! My First Vlog + Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hello ladies and gentlemen!  I have plenty of new projects coming up that I can't wait to share with you, but for now I'd like to announce my new Vlog featuring videos by yours truly.  I thought I would start a video channel on YouTube to add an extension to my blog that is more interactive with you!  It will feature various videos about fashion, styling, beauty tips or tutorials, healthy habits and fitness.  Let me know if you have any ideas of what you would like me to speak about or anything you would like me to do a video about.  My first video is a quick intro with a smokey eye tutorial.  Enjoy ;)

For now, allow me to introduce you to my channel:

OOTD: Standout Color of the Year

One of my favorite colors for the year is this bright coral tone, as it adds a pop of color to any look.  I paired this skirt with a denim peek-a-boo shoulder top and cinched it at the waist to create a more feminine overall look.  I also accented it with these chunky heels to give a bit of an edge, and leopard print is one of those prints that can carry on through seasons if worn the right way.  I tend to use leopard print to accessorize an outfit such as a belt, handbag or heels.  I also love big statement necklaces because they are a quick and easy way to bring it all together.  What are some of your favorite ways to accessorize your looks?

What I'm wearing:
F21 blouse
Express belt
Bebe skirt
Guess watch
H&M necklace
