While perusing through my closet in what turns into a two hour long journey and a sea of furrowed clothing on the floor, I ultimately come to one conclusion - a one-piece shall suffice for the day.  There is something so refreshingly clean and less exasperating about throwing on a jumpsuit than putting together a complete look that would require even more slashing through my clothes like a Kill Bill scene.  Hence, this Anatomie Doris jumpsuit (also known as my authentic companion).  I'm also giving away a pair of custom Anatomie pants over here.

Let's do this.

On this particular day, I also attempted to wear 5-inch white heels with my hair halfway down in 90-degree heat.  After realizing that I was not Gisele Bündchen and there was no Victoria's Secret runway nearby, I ditched the 5-inchers for a basic black block-heel sandal.  Surprisingly enough, this entire look was the least onerous to throw together and most comfortable to wear while trotting around with my toddler.  Indeed, I did a little jig in front of the mirror upon completion of this ensemble.  The geometric symmetry of this jumpsuit keeps the look modern, while the drawstring adds a casual aspect that makes me feel as though I'm wearing my pajamas in public without the embarrassment or guilt.  Boom.

What I'm rocking:
Jumpsuit ℅ Anatomie (PS. It's on sale right now so be excited)
Shoes by Tahari
Glasses by GUCCI

Swim Week Voyage: Escape Miami Style Lounge

Mercedes-Benz Swim Week is officially right around the corner, which means it's time to start lining up the best shows and events to attend.  I know what you may be thinking - why is Lynsee wearing a sailor hat and holding a massively large popsicle?  As part of "Our Summer Stories," 45 top Miami fashion bloggers and I shot at The National Hotel with photographer Alexander Tamargo for the 2nd Annual Escape Miami Style Lounge exhibit.  My Summer story incorporates a voyage of new experiences and opportunities (with a little fun in the sun of course).  Let me also add in there that lugging a huge popsicle around Miami Beach is quite an experience in itself.

Developing photo projects like this along with the Miami Fashion Bloggers is not only fun, but it's rewarding to see it all come together.  On July 19th, the Miami Style Lounge photo installation will be showcased at The National Hotel.  Hosted by the National Hotel Miami Beach, Peroni Nastro Azzurro and The Fashion Poet, this will be a must-attend event during Mercedes-Benz Swim Week.  As quick note, you will want to grab your tickets now because they are limited.

Come mingle with us over complimentary cocktails and bites, spa and beauty treatments (Summer waves for the girls and beard trimming/haircuts for the guys), fashion illustrations, DIY flower crown sessions, and plenty of pop-up shops to find the latest fashion trends.  There's even a gentlemen's corner this year for the guys to hang out, play some poker, and have an ice cold Peroni Nastro Azzurro brew.  I know, I know...this is quite rare to find a fashion event that also caters to your beau but it's true.  A fashion show begins at 3 p.m. so make sure you stop by for all of the fun!

Must be 21 and over to attend.

Summer Essentials + Giveaway!

Summer is my favorite season for endless reasons - warm weather, beautiful sunsets, beach days with my little man, and cold watermelon on my lips.  In celebration, I'm sharing the top Summer essentials on my list and products or brands that this girl is simply loving right now.  

The combination of high-end fashion and fine art make this line of clothing and accessories so beautiful.  Since 2012, Calaphya has built an array of gorgeous tops inspired by creating art and design for everyday life.  Whether dressing it up with an A-line skirt and heels or keeping it casual with a pair of black jeans, Calaphya tops have been my go-to on an everyday basis.

2. Flurowater
Hydration is key during the Summer.  After my recent trip to New York City, I was dehydrated and needed a pick-me-up (now enters Flurowater).  What makes Flurowater a favorite of mine is that it contains 14 nutrients, contains less than 10 calories, with zero sugar, 6 grams of fiber per bottle, and it makes drinking water a little more exciting.  Since I work out often and don't take many vitamins, this is my lifesaver.  It also comes in delicious flavors like Watermelon Raspberry, Kiwi Cucumber, Macoun Apple, and Dark Cherry.

3. Memebox
Subscription boxes typically offer sample sizes; however, Memebox offers 4-8 FULL-size beauty products to give the best experience.  After trying out various subscription beauty boxes Memebox has become my BFF not only for the full-size products, but all of the items are from Korea. If you haven't tried out Korean beauty products, you must try this out.  They are unique and amazing! 

4. Hollywood Fashion Tape
Fashion tape should be in every girl's purse.  Whether sweat is dripping down your body, clothes are slipping or you're wearing a dress that needs a lift, Hollywood Fashion Tape helps keep it all together.

5. It's a Ten Miracle Leave-In Product
The Holy Grail beauty product for the Summer (or ever).  After showering and washing my hair, I apply the It's a Ten Miracle Leave-In Product for a silky all-day shine.

6. Anatomie Travel Clothing
Made of Italian and French fabrics, Anatomie travel clothes are essential for Summer trips when comfort and style is key.  When I was in New York, I wore their Merika Wind Breaker pretty much everywhere.  Anatomie also offers a custom "Find Your Pant" service where they take your measurements and information to find the exact pair of pants that fits best.  If I'm ever traveling and need pieces that will keep me comfortable on the plane but chic once I touch down, I gravitate to Anatomie. 

7. Doll Face Skincare
As part of my everyday skincare routine, I've been incorporating the Doll Face Illuminating Face Polish, Anti-Oxidant Protective Moisturizer and Pore Perfecting Mineral Mask to keep glowing skin that stays fresh throughout the hot Summer days.  The Pore Perfecting Mineral Mask really helps clean out any toxins that enter during the days, when my face feels like it's melting off in 90 degree weather.

8. Maybelline Baby Lips
Maybelline Baby Lips contain the perfect combination of hydration, tint, and long-wear for lips.

9. Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes
The Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes remove all of my waterproof makeup in the Summer, without drying out the face.
