Despite the typical morning routine, we all tend to shift our routine on the weekends (especially during the summer).  Let's admit it, we sleep in later and dress a little more casual when Saturday morning approaches.  Check out the video below to see my morning routine on an average summer weekend with me.

The Perfect Casual Look for the Summer

One of my favorite items for the summer is my floral shorts, which can be dressed up or down.  In today's look of the day, I put together a casual outfit that I wore over the weekend.  An alternative to dressing these shorts down would be to pair them with a sheer black blouse or peplum top along with some strappy sandal heels or lucite pumps.  Since I was just out running some errands and having brunch, I decided to go for a more casual look that allowed me to stay pretty comfortable.


 What I'm Rocking:
Bag (Gifted from Italy)
Mossimo shoes by Target
Shorts by ZARA
Chambray blouse
Cuff by H&M

Weekend Recap.

After what seemed to be the hottest weekend in Miami (literally), I managed to survive the scorching weather and spend some time relaxing.  My favorite day during the weekends is Sunday because all of the local Miami-ans migrate to Lincoln Road where the ritualistic farmers market takes place every week.  I love to go there and pick up local fruits and veggies for the week, grab an iced coffee from Starbucks, a sushi lunch at Doraku, and occasionally shop around.

Here's a little photo diary of my weekend:

OOTD: The Perfect Daytime Look

Although it's September and the weather is cooling down in various locations, it still remains HOT HOT HOT in Miami (which is one of the reasons why I love this city)!  My hair might not love it so much, but we make it work.

Today's look is the ultimate daytime outfit because it's casual yet still adds a bit of femininity as well.  I combined a lightweight, neon top with a simple pair of denim shorts and cinched it at the waist.  I'm also rocking a pair of chunky heels that are absolutely comfortable so I can run around all day in these babies!  What's your go-to daytime look? 

What I'm wearing:
ZARA tank
Cotton On top
Target belt
F21 shorts
ALDO handbag

Friday Favorites: My Hair Trends for Summer

For this week's Friday Favorites, I'd like to share with you guys some of my favorite hair trends for the summer!  I saw these on the runway and thought they were so creative.  I can't wait to try some of them out.  Sometimes, changing your hair style can make a world of a difference in your overall look.  If you're rocking some skinny jeans and a white top, do something special with your hair to make it more polished.  Let me know what you think of these!


1) A twist on your average ponytail, which doesn't look too complicated to achieve.

2) Add some hair bling with a sleek headband.

3) Incorporating hardware in your hairstyle can give you a bit of an edge.

4) The glamorous curls/waves will never go out of style.

5) Add volume to your hairstyle by teasing it at the base of your hair and pulling it back.

My Summer 2012 Dress Picks

During the summertime, I wear plenty of dresses since the weather is perfect for rocking them with some platform sandals and bright nail polish.  I've put together some of my favorite dress picks for this season, ranging from affordable to some of the more high-end labels as well.  Of course they can be swapped out depending on your budget, but this is to give you a general idea of my choices for the season.

1) Forever 21 | High-Low Floral Dress | $24.80 | Buy here 2) H&M | Peplum Dress | $34.95 | Buy here 3) BCBG | Baile Cutout Detail Evening Gown | $328 | Buy Here 4) Phillip Lim | Double Layer Floating Kite Tail Dress | $750 | Buy Here 5) The Webster by Target | Scoop Neck Print Dress | $39.99 | Buy Here
I think everyone needs a high-low floral dress, a peplum dress, a sexy evening gown/dress, one statement dress, and a printed dress for the summer.
