OOTD: Hello, Goodbye Summer

Happy Monday everyone!  As we are all recovering from New York Fashion Week and starting off the new week, I thought I would share this outfit of the day which is one of my favorites on a hot Miami day.  Although it's cooling down in other areas, Miami seems to remain warm and humid (my hair is loving it of course).  When it's really hot outside, I tend to throw my hair up in a chic bun to keep it off my neck.  If you have thick hair, as I do, this is the perfect way to stay cool from head to toe!

A simple way to create a look that is both comfortable and weather-appropriate is to pair some colorful shorts with a basic white tank top.  I've also added open-toed platform sandals in a coral shade which complements the shorts.  If you'd like to see how I transformed this look into a Fall outfit, you can view it here:

What I'm wearing:
ZARA tank
Target shorts
H&M necklace
F21 earrings
Guess watch

Friday Favorites: My Steve Madden Shoe Picks

How I Organize my Clothing and Accessories

As I've mentioned before, I am very detail-oriented and organized so I am always coming up with new ways to organize items in my condo (or life in general)!  My next project is my closet, but that's a completely different story which just might take me a decade to finish.  I've devised some space-saving and creative ways to organize my various accessories, clothes and other items.  What are some of your organizational tips?  I would love to know!

Previously, I kept my jewelry in a standing jewelry organizer but I like this method better because I can see my pieces right up front and it serves as inspiration when I'm piecing looks together.  I found a similar version here.

In the past, I've kept my shoes in their original boxes and stacked them in my closet but I was looking for a way that I could have them out on display so I can easily grab a pair by viewing my collection.  Unfortunately, I didn't purchase enough of these stacked cubby organizers so I'm running out of room already.  However, they are great for keeping my shoes out in the open and allow me to showcase the pairs that I wear most often.  Here is a similar version.

Here are some of my most worn pairs for the spring season (plenty of open toe or sandal platforms)

After a wondrous trip to IKEA, I scooped up these white boxes with metal finish to store some of my accessories.  I wanted to save some space in my closet so I bought these storage boxes for about $10 and they came in a pack of four.  As you can see, I've labeled them so I can easily find what I'm looking for.

This is an easy way for me to organize my shorts without having to hang them up in the closet, where they occupy too much space.

My clutch purses store perfectly in these boxes.

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.

Rows of Bows

Happy Monday, beauties (and gents)!  It was another weekend in Miami filled with beautiful weather, so I can't complain too much about my weekend.  For today's OOTD, I'm showcasing this steal that I found at the local vintage market that I mentioned in previous posts before.  On various Sundays, vintage clothing or accessory sellers set up shop on Lincoln Road where anybody can come and purchase items.  There is one that I always stop by and she has some really great finds!  I snagged this one awhile ago, but haven't pulled it out of my closet until now.  It's a black blazer with light pink bow print throughout the outer layer of it.  I paired it with a chiffon black top and my favorite little sequin shorts.  The shoes are from ALDO; however, I removed the generic shoelaces and added my own special touch with some black chiffon pieces. 

What I'm wearing:
Vintage blazer
Arden B blouse
Express shorts
F21 accessories
ALDO booties with custom finish
Sally Hansen nail polish

Friday Favorites: Spring Shoes

Happy Friday!!  For this week's Friday Favorites, I would like to showcase my favorite shoes for this upcoming season.  I'm estimating that the following shoe styles will be very prevalent in my Spring blog posts.  Check them out, and let me know what you think!

1) Platform heels - I love the chunky platform open-toe heels because they are great for warm weather and shorts/skirts.

2) Pumps - These brightly colored pumps are the perfect addition to any outfit for the Spring.

3) Accented Mary Jane Heels - The femininity of these heels bring out the delicacy of the upcoming season, and nude shoes go with everything!

4) Wood-bottom heels - These are the ultimate daytime shoe because they give you the right amount of height and color, yet remain casual at the same time.

5) Chunky, low heels - I like to throw these on when I'm running daytime errands and they go great with floral prints or shorts as well.

Look for Less: Eva Longoria

 "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." - Coco Chanel

First of all, I'd like to say Happy International Women's Day to my beautiful and ambitious ladies out there!  After my first "Look for Less" blog post, I received a lot of positive feedback and requests for another one.  Therefore, today's post features yet another one - Eva Longoria.  I love the simple and casual look with just the right pop of color and handbag choice.  For this look, I paired a sheer collared shirt with some denim skinny jeans and these bright purple platform heels by Steve Madden.  Open-toe platform heels are the perfect Spring/Summer shoe. 

For those of you who don't know, Jason Wu recently designed and launched a line for Target and everything nearly sold it immediately after it was released.  I managed to snag this two-toned handbag, which goes with everything!

What I'm wearing:
Guess gold watch
F21 blouse
ZARA skinny jeans
Steve Madden platforms
Jason Wu for Target handbag
