Mid-Heels + Pajamas

Today's look combines a number of my favorite fall trends, including the ever-so-comfortable pajama pants (pajama shirts are also trending) and mid-heels.  I'm typically a 4 or 5-inch heel type of girl, but I'm really loving the comfort of wearing mid-heels for the new season.  Therefore, I paired these Nine West metallic heels with silky cobalt blue pajama pants by ZARA.

Mixing prints and textures is another love of mine, so I added a bit of a nautical touch with this vintage belt that I found at a local boutique.  Of course, a girl can never get enough gold too.  The chiffon H&M blouse is exceptionally versatile, as it can be worn a number of different ways or to dress up/down a look.

All Blue Everything with 2B Bebe

Exposed midsections have been raging for the past few seasons, and an ab-flashing piece can be both sexy and bold.  On the other hand, it can be quite an obstacle to dive into (eating bird food and doing a strenuous ab workout every day might not sound that exciting).  However, there are pieces that provide a slight peek of abdomen without going overboard.

With this in mind, I have really been loving this new cobalt blue peek-a-boo dress by 2B Bebe.  Blue has been one of my favorite shades for the past few months.  There's something about the bold yet calming feel of the color that adds a powerful statement to any look.  This particular dress is detailed with a tribal studded arrangement that really stood out when I chose this daring number.  It's the ideal date night or girls night out dress.

What I'm Rocking:
2fer Forbidden Blue Studded Dress c/o 2B Bebe (also available in white and black)
Shoes by ZARA

Black & White Contrast.

As one of the key fashion trends during the spring/summer season, contrasting black and white colors has been all the rage.  Although we're approaching the fall season now, I still love the simplicity and classic appeal from pairing these two basic colors together.  Designers such as Michael Kors, Maison Martin Margiela, Miu Miu, Ralph Lauren, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez, Jil Sander, and 3.1 Philip Lim went back-to-basics on the runway with black and white pieces.

To pull a contrasting look together, one can pair contrasting patterns or textures into an outfit or simply piece together various items that mix and match.

What I'm Rocking:

Shoes by BCBG
Clutch by ALDO
Bracelet by House of Dion

Video: Back to School Series Lookbook

Although the days of going "back to school" passed, one of my favorite memories of prepping for the new school years was shopping and/or styling new outfits for the first week.  Continuing with my Back to School Series, I compiled a lookbook featuring various outfits for different types of styles that can be worn during the first week of school.

If florals and girly accents are your thing, then the feminine and flirty look may be your best choice.  On the other hand, sometimes rocking a loose-fitting top and denim shorts can be so comfortable yet chic at the same time.  For the daring, I put together a bright and vibrant look that brings the best of both worlds.

Details for all outfits can be viewed on my blog:

Miami Swim Week Recap III: Betsey Johnson SS14 Swim Collection Launch Event

Betsey Johnson, American fashion designer renowned for feminine and quirky designs, hosted the most dazzling event during Mercedes-Benz Swim Week in Miami this year.  Filled with plenty of flare and pink galore, the launch party for her SS2014 swimwear collection was nothing short of fabulous.  The inspiration behind her latest collection combined Betsey's energy and eccentric ability to combine innovative design elements from travel, new trends and ageless discoveries.  Elite fashion bloggers, editors and socialites met on the rooftop of the Betsy Hotel (serendipity, right?) which overlooked a gorgeous view of Miami Beach's sandy beach.

“My swimwear is for the young and the forever young!  It's fun and flirty and a little bit rock and roll. I want my girls to feel good in my suits so it's also all about the fit!”, said Betsey.

Guests enjoyed signature "The Johnson" cocktails infused with prickly pear puree, POM pomegranate juice and Russian Standard Vodka.  Light bites were passed around as attendees jammed to a live DJ and beautiful models rocked Betsey's new swimwear collection.  Guests were also delighted with a special announcement that Betsey partnered with Malibu Design Group on this collection.

 “We are excited to partner with the iconic brand Betsey Johnson. This is a great way to expand our contemporary portfolio and we are honored Betsey is leading us there.” exclaimed Malibu Design Group president Henry Fan.

Miami Swim Week Recap II: Lifestyle Retreat Lounge

Highlighted during Miami Swim Week for a fourth consecutive year, the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge returned for a delightful event filled with pampering for fashion addicts alike.  Also known as LRL, the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge was held in the Ballroom of the James Royal Palm Hotel at 1545 Collins Avenue on Saturday and Sunday, July 20th - 21st from 12pm - 5pm.

LRL consisted of a range of designer presentations, a pop-up beauty salon sponsored by Safar, a photo booth lounge with quirky props provided by Capture Pod, and on-the-go activations.  It was one of those events where I could comfortably spend the entire day at a glamorous lounge full of relaxing activities to partake in.  There wasn't much missing from this Miami Swim Week event!  Guests sipped on cocktails provided by Chateau D'Esclans, Fifty Pounds Gin and Vida Tequila, while the Florida Cookery presented a delicious spread of light bites and treats.

A few of my favorite experiences were the massages provided by Equinox and complimentary manicures sponsored by LVX nail lacquer.  Jay Younger, celebrity nail artist, coated my nails in a tranquil shade of intrepid blue called "Celeste" from the LVX Summer Collection.  I also had the chance to stop by Ibiza Passion's booth to try on their fun and flirty jewelry pieces.  Long Hair Don't Care had plenty of freebies for guests, while Smoothie King served up healthy drinks and gentlemen enjoyed the Monster sponsored ping-pong lounge.
