Fall for Boots

Miami = bathing suit weather 355 days a year (if anyone outside of Miami came during these 10 “cold” days that I’m considering – they would probably laugh and jump right into their bikini). Although this SoFla weather is my favorite, it leaves little for fall and winter fashion. Luckily, I will get to play in Fall weather in a couple of weeks when I travel up North – where I will fully take advantage of fall breeze, colored leaves, and booties!

Whether you’re dressing up for a night out, out and about, or men’s inspired, here are some boots to fall for this season:

1. Over the Knee Boots – perfect with skinny jeans or mini skirts.

2. Booties – these are the perfect accessory skirts, pants, or jeans!

3. Riding boots - fashionably walkin’.

4. Moto & Combat boots – menswear inspired that can be worn in the rain or at the club!

5. Wedge Boots – who doesn’t love a wedge?

 

 

Which of these boots will you be walkin’ with this fall?

#TBT “MBFWSWIM Looks” Round Up!

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I have posted. I have been so busy with work (which I can never complain about!)

I am back & here’s a perfect post for #TBT (Throwback Thursday) edition – my “MBFWSwim Looks” Round up!

I got to attend many great shows during Fashion Week this summer. Here are some of my favorite “throwback” outfit and fashion show styles. I loved my neon manicured nails & gold flash Tattoos!

Since these shows were in Miami Beach and showcasing next year’s hottest Swim apparel, I decided to stick with bright colors and bold (tribal) patterns.

But let’s be honest, it’s almost ALWAYS Swim week here in Miami and bold, neon colors are easy to get away with any time of the year!

My favorite designs were from:

  • Mara Hoffman (bright colors, feathers, & leopard prints)
  • Beach Bunny (hello Austin Powers Bombshells!)
  • Frankie’s Bikinis (California babes)
  • Liliana Montoya (gorgeous patterns)
  • Dolores Cortes (animal prints)

SUMMER SUNDAYS

Summer Sundays are the best! But let’s be honest, living by the water in Miami (I know, I’m lucky!) is practically summer year round. Yesterday I took my pup for a walk to the park and relaxed by the water after a full day of work. I wore my favorite gray “Wifey” tshirt, fringe cut off shorts, flippies, and The Britique’s 36″ white clover + cubic zirconia necklace. This necklace is very versatile – I wear it on casual days like today and wear it out at night too! You can check out my outfit + Riley’s happiness near the water + VALENTINA below.

MBFW Day 1 – Neon Hues + Greek Goddesses

I had previously attended MBFWSWIM while in school as a volunteer required by my major, but this time I was lucky enough to attend events as a blogger, and loved it! Miami definitely brought out the heat with high summer temperatures, but that didn’t stop these models from rocking fiery designs on the runway. I kicked off MBFW Thursday night at the SLS hotel where Funkshion held the Barraca Chic show, and then hopped over the the Delano for the Ocean Drive Magazine Party. This summer I am all about neon colors (let’s be honest, living in Miami – I am ALWAYS about bright colors). I paired this yellow crop top with a black and white tribal skirt, and a black statement necklace. Aspiring to make both women and men look sexy and chic, Barraca Chic’s Resort 2015 collection is inspired by Greek Goddesses and Gods with embellished Swarvoski crystals. My crop happened to match a lot of the collection, bright yellow! Check out my outfit and the collection details below.

Beige Lace + Jean Shorts

My little brother is not so little anymore (and hasn’t been for a while, 6’2″ lol)! Yesterday my family got together to celebrate his 24th birthday. I’m lucky enough to live in Miami where my backgrounds and surroundings are gorgeous and inspiring! My summer wardrobe consists of a lot of light, lacy, feminine pieces. I paired this beige lace top with jeans shorts and  beige paten leather peep toe pumps which pop up against this colorful Wynwood art.

Light Pink Palette

Lately I have been loving on youtube makeup tutorials. Although I never seem to create the same results, it’s still fun to try lol! You can see my nude/pink/natural look in the selfie below.

This outfit is inspired by an ultra feminine light pink makeup palette – a lace cut out flower tank, 36″ pearl neck, + rhinestone sandals.

Tourist Style

Living on the beach calls for casual outfits – shorts, tanks, flippies, and over sized hats. I feel like I always look like a tourist, but I don’t mind :)

Here are a few pictures from my adventures last Saturday. Beachin’, Eatin’, + Lyftin’!

Crochet + High Waisted Jeans

Crochet is something that only your grandma played with previously, but has recently become a popular trend for Spring and Summer seasons as it started on the runways with Chanel and was quickly caught on by boho celebrities running around Coachella. This is one of my favorite summery daytime looks and I think is the most wearable boho chic trend right now. Running errands yesterday, I wore this h.i.p. (Happening in the present) crochet top from Nordstrom and paired it with these sailor button up skinny high waisted jeans from Agaci. Paired it with black + gold iPanema flippies perfect for walking. :)

Summer Floral

I love the beach! Growing up living in South Florida, I’ve gone almost every weekend since I was a kid. Now I’m lucky enough to live in Miami Beach, a short walk over to the sand & water. My favorite thing to wear (year round due to the scorching heat here!) is a spaghetti strap cotton dress. It’s light + comfy yet casual or dressy enough with the right accessories. Here I’m wearing a more casual look – a black and pink floral dress from Target (love these) and I topped it with the perfect summer accessory, a fedora hat from Agaci (to cover from those rays!). Summer Floral

Mexican Inspired Veggie Rice Skillet [GF CF Veg]

mexican inspired veg

Mexican food is my favoriteeeeee! So you can imagine how disappointed I was when I found out I could no longer have it due to my severe corn allergy. Here’s a corn-free, gluten-free vegetarian (includes cheese) Mexican inspired dish that totally fulfilled my craving.

Total Time: 30 Minutes

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Cup Rice
  • 1 sliced Zucchini
  • 1 sliced Squash
  • 1 can of Black Beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 2 sliced Tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • Lettuce
  • Canola Oil
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Optional Seasonings: Cayenne, Chili, Paprika, Garlic, White Pepper

Directions:

1. Cook rice (I used Lundberg Organic California White Basmati Rice)

2. Chop up the zucchini, squash, tomatoes. Drain/rinse black beans. Shred lettuce.

3. Heat oil in large skillet, medium heat. Add zucchini and squash, cook 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.

4. Add beans, tomatoes, and water. Increase heat and bring to a boil.

5. Add rice, Add seasonings; stir well. Cover, on low, 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

6. Sprinkle with cheese, let stand.

7. Serve with lettuce. (I mixed mine together)

 

Enjoy! :)

3D Makeup Printer

3d-makeup-printer

 

The makeup industry is a $55 BILLION dollar business. According to Business Insider, Grace Choi, a Harvard student has developed a 3D makeup printer at home. This printer has the capability of printing out all of your favorites – eyeshadow, blush, and lip colors that are the same used by makeup companies. Can you imagine printing out your favorite bubble gum lipstick before going out instead of having to run to the store? The mini printer, Mink, will retail for $300 and hooks up to a computer, like your normal printer allowing anyone to print makeup at home.

Choi talked about how the makeup industry “charges a huge premium on something that tech provides for free.”

 Would you print your makeup at home?

Pearl Remixed

Our 36″ pearl necklace, ELSA is a staple piece that you can dress up or down, yet adds a lot to your look. I’ve remixed it into three different styles here: Neon Fancy, Striped Casual, & Boyfriend Comfy.

Fushcia Splash

{Ring} GABRIELLA

{Arm Candy} KATARINA / KIMBERLY / LONDON

{Necklace} ADEL

{Earrings} AUTUMN

 

This Fushcia Splash is a perfect transition from Summer to Fall! Although in Miami we can pretty much wear flip flops & neon year round, I was channeling NYFW which is taking place this week! The dress speaks for itself – so I paired it with simple pieces – a 16″ silver sideways cross necklace, a lavender 2 tone ring, large 6 ct white cubic zirconia studs (because my hair is in a ballerina bun I like to wear large earrings), & 2 tone layered arm candy.
