Mother's Day Recap

Since this year was my first Mother's Day, I celebrated with brunch at Newport Beachside Hotel in North Miami Beach.  It was such an exciting day for me since it was my first celebratory Mother's Day with my little man.  Each day that I spend with him is special, but today was even more special for me.  Some of my friends joined me for a ladies brunch where we enjoyed endless mimosas and the most delicious spread of fresh seafood, a specialty chef egg station, fresh ceviche, smoked salmon, cheeses, fruit, muffins, bagels, croissants, pastries, rack of lamb, prime rib, and a large array of desserts as well.  I loved every bit of my first Mother's Day!

What I'm wearing:
ZARA top
Target tank top
F21 necklace
ZARA shorts
ALDO handbag
My DIY heels (see how I created them here)

What my son is wearing:
Gifted shirt
ZARA BABY shorts/suspenders
Dockers socks
H&M shoes

Lady in Red

During the spring and summer seasons I love wearing rompers because they are so simple to throw on, yet chic and feminine.  They can also be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.  In my Spring Trends blog post, I featured a lightweight floral romper that I paired with some neon heels.  However, today's OOTD showcases this silk romper that I scooped up at Bebe.  What drew me to this piece was the bold color in addition to the detailing and pleats.   Therefore, it's one of my favorite items in the closet as of now.  I decided to go for a bit of a casual look by pairing it with some simple snakeskin sandals, but I also added a big statement necklace and a chunky bracelet with my gold watch.  Adding bold accessories to a solid piece can create a very chic look. 

What I'm wearing:
Bebe romper
F21 necklace & bracelet
GUESS watch
Sally Hansen nail strips

Neon Silk and Metallic Accents

What else would I be doing at 11:30pm on a Tuesday night than posting my blog of the day?  For today's OOTD I paired this gem of a top with some sequin shorts and metallic accents.  Combining neon with metallic accents can really make your look pop, or if you aren't as daring you can always choose your preference to add to your look to complete it.  For example, pairing a simple bright top with a neutral maxi skirt can go well with a skinny metallic belt and heels.  Whichever way you choose to dress it up or down, it can ultimately look amazing together.  XOXO.

What I'm wearing:
Cotton On blouse
Express shorts
ALDO clutch
Anne Klein watch
F21 earrings
China Glaze nail polish
ESSIE nail polish

How To Revamp Your Spring Wardrobe: 10 Must-Haves

A great way to revamp your spring wardrobe can be done by simply adding (or keeping) 10 essential items for the new season.  There are a few trends that have carried over to the spring, so not all winter items have to be pushed to the back of your closet.

Here are my 10 essentials for the new season:

  1.  Neon - A lightweight neon top can make any outfit pop
  2. A Bright Blazer - Adding a cotton bright blazer completes the look
  3. Metallic Clutch - Pairing metallic accents with simple pieces or prints can look great together
  4. A Floral Dress - Every girl needs something very feminine in her closet, and what better way to pull it off than a pink floral dress?
  5. Lightweight Pants - I love to throw these on with a white tank underneath and a skinny belt
  6. Pastel - Without looking like an Easter egg, you can incorporate pastels in a subtle way by rocking light pinks, purple, mint green or light blue
  7. A Printed Blouse - These look wonderful underneath some high-waisted shorts or pants
  8. A Colorblocked Tote - Perfect beach bag
  9. A Bright Skinny Belt - The ideal way to cinch up a blouse, dress, or pants
  10. Simple Black Shorts - They go with everything!

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

I Bleed Purple and Gold

I wanted to start off the week with a bit more casual look, so today's post features this loose-fitting tank, a leather jacket, and some DIY denim shorts that I created.  This weekend was pretty busy for me since my mother came into town to see my baby boy and myself (although I'm sure she only comes to spoil him and I just so happen to reside in the same place), but it was a great time.  I love spending time with my family because they keep me grounded.  Anyway, I have a lot of new home decor items that I can't wait to show you guys in a later post!  Lately, I've been revamping the decor in my place and I'm excited for you to see the finished look.

What I'm wearing:
Express leather jacket
Lakers tank
DIY custom shorts (I cut some old jeans up and added my own touch by piecing studs and leather on them with splashes of bleach)

The Bow Tie

One of my new favorite accessories is this black bow tie that I scooped up from American Apparel.  As many of you may already know, I am a big fan of menswear for ladies nowadays.  I've been incorporating skinny ties, bow ties, and suspenders into my looks lately.  For today's OOTD, I paired a bow tie with a sheer collared blouse, bright pink lace shorts, a black blazer, and the infamous Steve Madden Mary Jane pumps.  Enjoy, my loves =]

What I'm wearing:
TJ Maxx blazer (great steal!)
F21 blouse
F21 shorts
American Apparel bow tie
Steve Madden pumps

Miami Wine & Spirits Expo

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?  I had a pretty busy weekend, but I was able to squeeze in some rest and relaxation as well.  I would have to say that the highlight of my weekend was attending the Miami Wine & Spirits Expo, yesterday.  For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Miami Wine & Spirits Expo is a showcasing of various wine and spirits within the United States (primarily more localized).  Therefore, I was able to sample a variety of different wines and spirits! 

As for what I wore, I decided to go with something pretty casual yet professional since I was going for business purposes.  I wore my short suit along with some sandals and a snakeskin bag (faux).  Here are some of the shots from the amazing event:
