The Essentials




The product of my recent overconsumption of wanderlust has left me with life's essentials: a basic white tank, skinny jeans, skyscraper heels and a leather coat.  Upon traveling to the arctic (or what America likes to call the Midwest in January), it's needless to say that I did a terrible job at packing for such weather.  It would seem that I have not learned my lesson from living up there for over 17 years, but I digress.  

And so here I am, open-toed and all, in Miami Beach once again.  Now that I'm back in the Magic City, it's only suitable that I share some of my favorite go-to spots to hit up post-traveling.  

Mexican food and I have had quite an extensive love affair ever since I can remember.  My entire pregnancy is sheer proof of that, but one of the newest taco spots in Miami Beach is a combination of a backyard food truck fused with a hidden gem (the bathroom door actually leads to an after hours lounge).  Try the Pescado with Grilled Mahi, Charred Pineapple Slaw, Picked Onions, Cilantro, and Chipotle-Cotija Dressing for a sweet $4.50.  Boom.  I just blew your mind. 

Sunday is undoubtedly considered the dedicated day of brunching; however, one of the greatest parts of this place is its ability to understand the value of a Saturday brunch.  With its 1930s New York style chandeliers and burgundy leather walls, it carries a "local Miami" aura that I became instantly amused with after my first visit.  The low down: the champagne and bloody mary's, for those of you so inclined, flow until 4pm every Saturday.  Food wise, you need to get involved with the tuna tartar (with truffle-soy vinaigrette), sweet potato fries, and the seared North Atlantic salmon salad.

The quintessential modern and contemporary art museum is a must-see every second Saturday of the month, as it exhibits international artwork from the 20th and 21st centuries at no charge.  The architecture is exceptional, and it comes equipped with outdoor swings and lounge chairs with a beautiful bay view of Miami.  

The way to my heart is obviously through french macarons, and Ladurée has the absolute best tasting selection ranging from salted caramel (my favorite) to Marie Antoinette, Praline, and Pistachio.  Whenever I'm perusing Lincoln Road after a long trip, this is the perfect pick-me-up treat.

Korean restaurants are few and far in Miami, and the closest one that I've spotted was in North Miami (which closed years ago).  I've secretly been dying inside from the lack of Korean food in the area that I live in, but alas, the time has come.  The Drunken Dragon is a Asian gastropub with Korean barbecue-style tables and tiki-themed cocktails, that serves up goods until 6 a.m. on weekends.  The hot spot has everything from twice fried chicken to white kimchi, Shanghai style fried rice, D&D fries and octopus.

The New Icons



So here I am, on a rooftop, in a knotted-tee and bandage skirt.  It turns out Winter in Miami isn't so bad. As a result, my daily wardrobe tends to consist of my beloved crop tops and short shorts (or in this case, a skirt) to give my Summer pieces some relevance once again.  Although I've never really been the woman to check the weather prior to stepping outside, so I usually just throw on these basics and hope for the best.  When in doubt, throw on a graphic tee and a bandage skirt (to suck everything in) and call it a day.

Plunge Jumpsuit + Pastel Cocoon Coat







There are few things that beat the Winters in Miami, paired with sun-filled Sundays, toes in the sand and salty water splashing through the hair.  And just like that, I'm back in Miami Beach (and my fluffy white bed).  Don't get me wrong…it's always a joy to travel home and see my family, but it feels good to be back in crop top/denim short weather.  For the best of both worlds, I decided to pair this black GUESS jumpsuit with an alternate soft-toned cocoon coat.  I love the combination of pastels with dark shades, as it offsets the femininity of the coat.

The Skirt Trick






Oddly enough, I'm sitting at my laptop, with a pile full of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Speculoos Cookie Butter Cups as I blog my life away at 1:04 A.M.  Obviously, what else would one be doing at such a time?  Cyber family - I have come to a realization that I failed to post anything in almost a week, which is highly unlike me.  Although I would like to place the blame on my presence at home, visiting family.  Yes, that sounds like a good excuse.  I've also taken on the role of posting a new video every day of December on my video channel, which seemingly takes up more time than expected when I initially had this grand idea in my head.  Nonetheless, I like to stick to my word so I shall push forward.

As I sit in the 40 degree weather, enjoying the 10 degree increase since the past week, I recall this look that I shot back in Miami prior to traveling up here.  If you grew up in the 90's, this dandy little wonder called a skort, was all the rage.  What could possibly be better than a skirt that ultimately remains shorts?  This skirt trick has a sexy edge without looking ridiculously crazy.

GUESS Holiday in New York City

Advertisement
There's something beautiful about melding fashion exclusivity with New York glamour, which is why I'm excited to announce the latest project that I've been working on. GUESS recently invited me for a night of glamour in New York City, where myself and a few other influencers were "glammed" up and laced in the new GUESS holiday collection. I'm overly fascinated with vibrant reds for Fall/Winter, so I instantly selected the Off Shoulder Corset Dress for our photo shoot at The Griffin.

There's something alluring about a peek of shoulder and a little leg that makes the corset dress essential for a girl's night out. To accessorize the look, I paired it with a Sunrise rose gold watch, Greyson satchel bag, and Cayen heels (which just might be the most comfortable pair of high heels existing in my closet). 

The photo shoot was so much fun with the girls, complete with gold confetti for days! Check out photos from the shoot below, and get some glam inspiration for your upcoming holiday parties.

Royals









Lo and behold, I find myself back in Miami Beach after a long trip home to see my family and a quick little business affair in the city that never sleeps (New York City).  Relaxing, in both the literal and sartorial sense, has never really been my forte.  I somehow tend to end up as the apparently overdressed  person at the movie theater or 5-inch heels as I peruse through a grocery store.  On the other hand, anybody can appreciate a great wide leg pant or jumpsuit for comfort and style.  

One of the simplest go-to pieces that has infested itself in my closet is a jumpsuit - there's something easy and breezy about throwing on a no-fuss one-piece that makes even the worst days improve.  A monochromatic look also keeps the look chic without bombarding the piece.

Amongst one of my favorite photo shoot locations, my tripod and I took a little jaunt to snap this little denim get up.  Despite the appearance of possibly looking as though I'm straight out of Dallas, the all-denim look is actually quite appealing to me.  The combination of pairing together various denims with a block heel sandal and favorite fedora keep it chic without the whole "cowboy Lynsee" feel.  One can't possibly sustain wearing an entire denim outfit consisting of the same pattern of denim, so my conclusion is to incorporate various textures and colors.  

Upon completion of shooting this post (and attempting to shield myself from random peepers peering down on the rooftop of this building), I started thinking of other variations of head-to-toe denim that would be equally favorable.  How would you wear it?

Equipped for Lincoln Road + a Summer Picnic with Levi's

As much as I love denim shorts, I've always had a hard time finding a truly comfortable pair that are wearable in any occasion and my search has finally ended.  I fell in love with Levi's 501® Shorts almost immediately after I tried them on for the first time, as they are vintage-inspired with the same iconic fit that started it all.  

A classic blazer paired with denim shorts and white basics allows me to be equipped for summer days, whether I'm running to a quick meeting on Lincoln Road or switching shoes and ditching the blazer for a picnic in the park with my son.

To polish off the outfit, I'm wearing a structured navy blazer which hits right where the Levi's 501® Shorts end.  Pairing a long blazer with shorts not only counteracts the shortness/tightness of them, but it also elongates the legs.

Of course, the accessories complete the outfit so I decided to kick it up a notch by throwing in a leopard printed belt and my Guess watch.  When shopping for the perfect denim shorts, I suggest looking for a button fly with a raw hem and soft roll like these.  They also sit right below the natural waist, which is ultra comfortable for any activity.

Sweater Weather


As the weather cools down around this time of the year, one of my favorite essential pieces to keep stocked in the closet is a chic sweater.  I've been rocking this chunky, cable sweater by ELAN and loving the embellishments of it.  It's a standout piece that completes any look and can be paired well with pretty much everything.  For a feminine look, I paired it with a flippy skirt and bold accents.



A gold watch can really glam up a casual sweater, yet keep it classic at the same time.  Since I kept my accessories fairly minimal due to the sweater's embellishments, a gold watch polishes the complete look and brings it all together.  




What I love about chunky sweaters is that they can be worn with a skirt to dress it up, a pair of skinny jeans to keep it casual, or layered with a collared shirt to give it a preppy vibe.  Although this look is primarily monochromatic, I wanted to add a bold print and pop of color to keep it edgy and chic at once.  



Of course, I had to dress the look up with some chunky platform heels and these velvet Steve Madden shoes add a touch of luxury to the look.  


What I'm Rocking:
Sweater by ELAN | Skirt by Express | Hat by F21 | Watch by Guess | Bag by ALDO | Shoes by Steve Madden

The Short Suit.

A girl can never have enough gold, right?  There is something about the combination of black and gold that entices my eye and creates a polished look.  "Menswear" is trending for fall, so for today's look I decided to play around with textures and put together a short suit with this blazer by Bebe and loafer heels by Me Too from Hautelook.

I've been loving the brocade print, which is a class of rich and decorative shuttle-woven fabrics made with interweaving layers of silk and metallic thread.  I wore this outfit to the Bloomingdale's event that I mentioned in my previous "How to Style Denim" post, so I paired the blazer with shorts by F21.

Since I was attending a daytime event, I kept my accessories pretty minimal with a gold watch by Guess and an oversized clutch by Steve Madden.
