Mother's Day Recap

Since this year was my first Mother's Day, I celebrated with brunch at Newport Beachside Hotel in North Miami Beach.  It was such an exciting day for me since it was my first celebratory Mother's Day with my little man.  Each day that I spend with him is special, but today was even more special for me.  Some of my friends joined me for a ladies brunch where we enjoyed endless mimosas and the most delicious spread of fresh seafood, a specialty chef egg station, fresh ceviche, smoked salmon, cheeses, fruit, muffins, bagels, croissants, pastries, rack of lamb, prime rib, and a large array of desserts as well.  I loved every bit of my first Mother's Day!

What I'm wearing:
ZARA top
Target tank top
F21 necklace
ZARA shorts
ALDO handbag
My DIY heels (see how I created them here)

What my son is wearing:
Gifted shirt
ZARA BABY shorts/suspenders
Dockers socks
H&M shoes

How To Revamp Your Spring Wardrobe: 10 Must-Haves

A great way to revamp your spring wardrobe can be done by simply adding (or keeping) 10 essential items for the new season.  There are a few trends that have carried over to the spring, so not all winter items have to be pushed to the back of your closet.

Here are my 10 essentials for the new season:

  1.  Neon - A lightweight neon top can make any outfit pop
  2. A Bright Blazer - Adding a cotton bright blazer completes the look
  3. Metallic Clutch - Pairing metallic accents with simple pieces or prints can look great together
  4. A Floral Dress - Every girl needs something very feminine in her closet, and what better way to pull it off than a pink floral dress?
  5. Lightweight Pants - I love to throw these on with a white tank underneath and a skinny belt
  6. Pastel - Without looking like an Easter egg, you can incorporate pastels in a subtle way by rocking light pinks, purple, mint green or light blue
  7. A Printed Blouse - These look wonderful underneath some high-waisted shorts or pants
  8. A Colorblocked Tote - Perfect beach bag
  9. A Bright Skinny Belt - The ideal way to cinch up a blouse, dress, or pants
  10. Simple Black Shorts - They go with everything!

Weekend Looks for 3 Different Style Types

As the weekend is approaching, so are the endless options of what to wear for every occasion.  Everybody has their own style; therefore, I have dedicated today's post to outlining three different looks for these style types.  If your style type is eclectic, you can switch out the following looks as they apply to occasions or events throughout the weekend.  Enjoy!

Feminine and Trendy - This look is perfect for those who love delicate fabrics, spring floral prints, follow trends, and enjoy girlie accents.  The ideal occasion: Brunch with the ladies.  Where the items are from: F21 blouse, shorts and bracelet | ALDO heels and bag.

Effortlessly Chic - Although rocking high heels is great, sometimes a girl just wants to throw on a pair of flats too.  It could also be wearable with a pair of denim shorts, as shoulder bags accentuate the length of shorts as well.  This outfit is applicable to those who enjoy a bit more of a casual look, need something cute yet fashionable for school, or on-the-go moms.  The ideal occasion: Daytime shopping or to the local market.  Where the items are from: ZARA top | F21 distressed jeans | Vintage shoulder bag | Target flats | F21 accessories.

Bold and Edgy - For the daring, this look can make you stand out in any setting.  Pair a high-peaked shoulder top with a statement necklace, sequin shorts and colorful pumps and you are set.  The ideal occasion: Girl's night out or a late dinner date.  Where the items are from: ZARA top | ZARA necklace | Arden B earrings | Guess watch | Express shorts | Boutique pumps.

Spring Trend: Florals and Neon

To be honest, I rarely ever wore floral print until last year.  My style has transformed to a mix of feminine yet edgy chic.  Therefore, I have really embraced floral prints during the Spring and Summer seasons because they are so delicate.  I also tend to wear plenty of rompers, skirts, and shorts when it's warm out.  Rompers are not only comfortable, but they can be paired with anything from blazers to a denim vest (depending on what type of romper).  For today's look of the day, I've paired this Urban Outfitters romper with some pink neon heels.  I like the contrast of delicate prints with something a little more bold and edgy.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
Urban Outfitters romper
ALDO heels
F21 earrings
Guess watch

Floral

My inspiration for this outfit derived from the latest issue of Vogue, where a woman was wearing a delicate lace top layered with a denim jacket and floral printed bottoms.  I tend to gravitate to magazines when I am looking for fashion inspiration.  I added a few accessories as my personal touch, along with a color-blocked daytime clutch and brown chunky heels.  These heels are the ideal daytime heel because they are so comfortable.

What I'm wearing:
F21 denim top
ZARA top
F21 shorts
Express sunglasses
Guess watch
Steve Madden clutch
