Red Midi Skirt







Midi skirts seem most appropriate during the Fall/Winter season, although I'm fairly keen to mini skirts or flouncy A-line skirts.  However, I feel so feminine and radiant in this bright red midi skirt from Express.  I'm a firm believer in dressing for your body type, and for some reason, midi skirts have never really been too flattering on my shorter-framed body until I discovered ways to alter it for a more appealing look (without looking like an oompa loompa).  Whenever I'm wearing a skirt or dress that hits beneath the knees, I offset it with a light colored crop top to elongate the torso and high heels of at least 4 inches or taller.  A neutral heel, such as nude or metallic, helps lengthen the appearance of legs as well.  There you have it - my tricks for hiding my short height.  

What I'm rocking:
Crop top ℅ Missguided
Skirt by Express
Bracelet ℅ Pandora
Heels by ALDO

There are few things more grueling than the process of getting in shape, and somehow letting life happen (because occasionally we all need that plate of greasy french fries, extra cheesy pizza, or intensely rich slice of cheesecake), then having to lose the weight all over again. However, living a healthy lifestyle doesn't have to be such a tragic chore if you balance everything out. I'm a firm believer in doing everything in moderation for a happy and healthy body. As a mommy of a fully energized toddler, remaining active allows me to stay engaged in all aspects of life without having to sacrifice one type of peace of mind for another.  Life is all about balance – whether it be squeezing in a workout early in the mornings while my son works out with me, cooking a healthy meal, cleaning my house, playing with my son at the playground or running to a photo shoot, it's possible.

This is for you. The ones who have it all....on your to-do list.


I'm teaming up with lucy to not only highlight their incredibly versatile workout clothes, but to also give you the chance to win your choice of a year (yes, a year) of housecleaning, babysitting or meal delivery. One grand prize winner will receive all three! To enter for a chance to win more “You Time,” click the link below. Giveaway ends December 16th.

As the end of Summer nears its dreadful departure, two thoughts come to mind - it's time to switch up the workout routine and my face should no longer melt off when I step outside.  Therefore, I'm teaming up with Target® C9 to share my favorite ways to remain active toward the end of Summer and beginning of Fall.  Since Miami tends to cool down slightly post-Summer, it gives me the opportunity to do a variety of outdoor activities such as going for a run or doing a little yoga by the beach.  Although if you know me well enough, it's apparent that I usually do a Beachbody workout in-home.  When the seasons change over, I like to dive into a different program though. 

Lately, I've been quite fond of P90X3 since it allows me to refrain from being soaked in the heat while Summer ends and it's also something that I can do within 30 minutes while still taking care of my little guy at home. What are some of your favorite activities that you keep you fit while transitioning seasons?

Bird's Eye View




Aside from about a billion reasons why I love New York City, there's much to be said about Summers in the city as well.  Shifting from the sweltering Miami heat to much more breathable air along with rooftop views of beautiful highrise architecture, sunlight peaking through the tallest buildings, and endless people hurriedly wandering the streets of NYC, truly feels like you're in the center of the world (if even for a moment).  On the opposite side of the spectrum, basking in the rooftop glory in the city is quite a change of speed in comparison to New York Fashion Week's bloody cold weather.

During my NYC experience with Marriott Hotels, I discovered a gem atop the Courtyard Marriott New York Manhattan/Herald Square.  The Scandinavian-chic décor of Monarch is one of the intricate details of the rooftop lounge, encompassing an indoor lounge with a seductive allure, Vintage bricks, glass doors, teak and grey custom Terrazzo tiles, and accents of true Manhattan elegance.  Let's just say with 5,000 square feet on the 18th floor and a photographic view of iconic Empire State Building, all possible thoughts of doubt or stress go completely out the window (if there were any).

ASOS Miami Swim Lounge

Prior to my New York City trip there were a number of brunches, cocktail receptions, pool parties and runway shows filled by bikini-clad models for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami.  Despite being able to reminisce on each and every one, there are particular ones that stand out the most.  One that I did enjoy was the ASOS Miami Swim Lounge at Soho Beach House, featuring sun-drenched media, bloggers and other VIP guests for a quick poolside brunch and preview of the latest ASOS pieces.

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.

Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. Gap opened its Lincoln Road doors on June 20th for a massive fashion house that was well worth the wait. Although I missed the grand opening of the new Gap store, I had a chance to drop by the epic re-design this week and absolutely fell in love with it. The two-story store is complete with a variety of products for men, women, and children, including GapFit, GapMaternity and GapBody. Upon entering the store, of course there is a palm tree light installation to highlight the reflective city. Additionally, there are multiple photo installations inspired by local Instagram influencers that can be seen throughout the store with "Hello Miami" stamped on them.

Another aspect of this Gap store that I love is that women's, GapFit and children's clothing departments are all under one roof whereas they were separated into two different stores before the redesign. This makes shopping with my little guy so much easier (and more spacious).

Everything about the new Gap store on Lincoln Road screams Miami, including the glass structure which allows an immense amount of sunlight to shine throughout the entire store. Carlos and Jackie Touzet of Touzet Studio did an incredible job on the new design of Gap's Lincoln Road storefront, but don't simply take my word for it. You have to check it out for yourself!

For more photos and buzz from the Lincoln Road grand opening, check out the Gap Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube outlets or www.gap.com.

When you stop in the store, snap a pic and post it on Instagram with the tag #HelloLincolnRoad and tag me @StyleByLynsee! I'd love to check out how your visit went :)

Mesh Tops + Denim Shorts

As seen all over the runways and fashion blogs, the sporty trend is all the rage for Spring/Summer 2014 fashion.  Denim shorts are ultimately an essential staple in a woman's Summer wardrobe, which is why I'm loving Levi's 501 shorts.  The fringed hem keeps it casual while the fit is sophisticated and comfortable.  Let's just say I pretty much...live in them.  Denim shorts don't have to strictly be paired with a basic tee and sandals, ladies.

A white mesh jersey top layered with a bright bandeau can instantly add a sporty effect to a basic pair of denim shorts.  The sporty shirt keeps the look young and fresh while a colorful underlay adds a pop of color.

Adding a pair of Nike shoes with textured bracelets keeps the overall look casual with just the right amount of sporty appeal.  It's the perfect daytime outfit to keep you equipped for Summer action.

The Most Comfortable Lingerie in the World

Well, ladies, I have to tell you about my recent rendezvous.  Nothing is more luxurious than high-quality undergarments against the skin because whatever touches your body needs to be:

1) Comfortable enough to wear underneath anything without giving that whole "granny panty" effect
2) Sexy enough to feel like J-Lo when you're dancing in front of the mirror in the mornings (no, just me?)
3) Sterilized, obviously

In the midst of searching for women's lingerie with all of these qualities, I was casually introduced to ThirdLove. Upon receiving their Mesh Plunge Bra and Bikini bottoms, I slipped them on to immediately feel like Mariah Carey with wind blowing through my hair.  It was then that I realized I wasn't in the middle of a desert, filming a music video but rather in my bedroom staring at a mobile fan pacing back and worth.  However, ThirdLove's tasteful lingerie not only has a luxurious look and feel.  Their pieces honestly feel as though there is nothing on your body.  The first time I wore my ThirdLove lingerie, I had to double check to make sure I was still wearing underwear.




On another note, they provide 1/2 cup sizes for better fit (although I'm part of the IBTC so I don't quite need any larger sizes).  If you're unfamiliar with IBTC, feel free to Google it.  Additionally, ThirdLove has a unique app that allows you to measure yourself with a virtual measuring tape from the convenience of your smartphone.  This seems to be a much better approach than having a random salesperson measuring your bust in a department store.

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.

The Summer Essential: Romper

Every girl in the world needs at least one (or twelve) rompers in her closet, especially during the summer season.  I know what you may be thinking.  But I feel like a 4-year-old when I'm wearing a one-piece.  However, feeling young and vibrant when wearing a clothing item is fabulous.  As an essential item for Summer 2014, a romper is the perfect one-piece garment that never really goes out of style and can be worn with various body types.  After stopping by the new Everything But Water boutique in Aventura Mall, I spotted this little Nanette Lepore number and absolutely fell in love.

Upon perusing through Luli Fama swimwear, Mara Hoffman cover-ups and Michael Kors accessories, I couldn't help but gravitate towards this gorgeous navy blue romper.  Needless to say, I've been living in it.  Proof: I wore it in the video that I posted yesterday as well.

The beaded embellishment on the front portion of this romper gives it such a vibrant look and feel while requiring very little accessories to complete the look.  I paired it with some strappy heels to dress it up, but this would also be great for a day at the beach.  Aside from its appearance, a romper is also extremely comfortable for any occasion as long as it's fitted well.  

Let's talk about my shopping experience with Everything But Water.

Everything But Water had an amazing fitting team to help me throughout my entire experience and made sure that it felt and looked great on me.  For example, a pear shaped woman would look amazing with a romper that's embellished on the upper portion of the piece while curvy girls look great in a romper that gathers at the waist.  For those who are a little top heavy, high necklines or frills work well.

Who doesn't love snacks?  It has been highly requested to feature my son in more blog posts and/or videos, so we filmed how to make some of his favorite healthy snacks in the little amount of time that is available in a day to make them.  Feeding children nourishing food is important, as they burn off plenty of energy throughout the day.  Most of the items used in this video were all purchased from Trader Joe's, but any natural food store will do.  

Taejin's Favorite Healthy Snacks:
  • Apples with Peanut Butter and Raisins
  • Crunchy Fro-yo Banana Bites 
  • Cheesy Pizza-Dilla
  • Pick-One Snack Tray
What are some of your (or your kiddos') favorite snacks?

A color combination that screams "utter perfection" for the Spring season is pink and ivory, as it is delicate and feminine.  As a featured editor for ShopStyle by PopSugar, I've compiled some of my favorite pieces including everything from my go-to rompers, accessories, handbags, Valentino Rockstud sandals, trendy sneakers, dresses, etc.  Anna-Karin Karisson's gold glitter-speckled cream sunglasses are gorgeous paired with the carved roses on top of the frames.   Another Spring friendly accessory that I'm loving is the Erickson Beamon necklace coated with gold-plated Swarovski crystals.  The floral arrangement of this necklace will set off any basic top!  A few other floral favorites of mine are the Dolce & Gabbana Cotton Silk Brocade coat, Givenchy skate shoes, and Erdem's embroidered silk-organza gown (which is to die for).

For ivory basics, the fresh crocodile-embossed crop by Alexander McQueen is a beauty in addition to Malene Birger's wrap-effect jumpsuit.  Jumpsuits or rompers are my timeless pieces that look chic and effortless.  There's also something about a clean, white handbag like Michael Kors' medium satchel, that polishes off a look.  Givenchy's small antigona grained leather bag isn't bad either.
