Vintage Finds + My Weekend Recap

Happy Monday everyone!  I've been pretty busy these past few weeks working on an upcoming project so I spent most of the weekend with my son.  The weekends are always enjoyable because it's our "family time" and Sundays are my cheat days where I indulge in yummy food.  I had some mommy time on Friday night, spent a lot of time outside on Saturday, purchased some new phone candy, and spent Sunday on Lincoln Road as usual.

The vintage market is back in season on Lincoln Road so I was uber excited.  I love vintage shopping because you can usually find some really good hidden gems, but it requires some searching.  Check out my weekend photo diary below and tell me what you did over the weekend.

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: My Top 5 Spring Handbags

For this week's Friday Favorites, I wanted to highlight my top 5 favorite handbags for the upcoming season.  The following items are my must-have handbags for my Spring wardrobe: a color-blocked bag, an oversized daytime clutch, a printed bag, a classic black bag, and a two-toned tote.

When I really want to add a pop of color, I love to rock a color-blocked shoulder bag because it's simple yet bold.  Oversized daytime clutches are very chic right now, as they add a nice statement piece to your overall look.  In addition, I believe that every woman should own a printed bag because it can enhance a neutral look with one accessory.  Of course a classic black bag is a must-have because it goes with almost anything in a woman's closet.  Finally, I love to carry this two-toned tote when I'm going to the beach or running errands throughout the day.  Most of these bags are daytime purses/bags, but a few can be transformed for night looks as well.

1) Color-blocked shoulder bag - Vintage
2) Oversized daytime clutch - Steve Madden
3) Printed bag - ALDO
4) Classic black bag - JPK Handbags
5) Two-toned tote - Target

What are some of your favorite handbag styles of the season?

The Skinny Tie

One of my favorite trends right now is menswear for women.  However you prefer to style it, it can add a bit of structure or power to your look.  For this look, I paired a tuxedo jacket with a collared blouse, a lace skinny tie, and sequin pants.  I've also acquired quite the craving for these loafer heels as well.  They add a feminine touch to a masculine shoe.  What do you guys think about menswear for ladies?

What I'm wearing:
Vintage tuxedo blazer
F21 blouse
F21 skinny tie
Arden B pants
Hautelook (Me Too) heels

G'd Up From the Feet Up

What I love about this outfit are these vintage pants I snagged at a local store.  After seeing them, I instantly had to have them.  What's really great about vintage pieces is knowing that nobody else will have the exact piece that you have.  I am a big fan of high-waist pieces because they help elongate my legs.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 blazer
Defined top
Vintage pants
Target belt
Bakers shoes
Guess watch

Neon and Bright Maxi Skirts

What I'm wearing:
ZARA tank, Lulu's maxi skirt, Victoria's Secret bra, Vintage belt, Steve Madden handbag, Forever 21 necklace, H&M bracelets

One of my latest fascinations is neon garments.  As you can see, I've added a neon green bra underneath a loose fitting tank top to highlight the outfit and complement my maxi skirt.  It's perfect for a breezy day in Miami.
