Mixing and Matching can be a bit risky but yet super fun. Floral prints are the ultimate trend for the 2017 summer season and I absolutely love my white oversize button-down with embroidered floral prints around the shoulders. My pearl earrings brightens out my crisp white top even more. While pairing my color block mini skirt with vibrant colors, it separated the multi-color statement. Kick off the outfit with a caramel quilted hand bag and bronze ruffled sandals.
Fringe trend has been making a HUGE comeback since 2014 for both fall and spring seasons. In fact fringe is taking it back to those ’80s, so just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. BAM! It did! It’s glamorous, sultry and quite sexy, and a very modern silhouette look. This olive top is already unique so I really didn't have to do much to make it pop. The placement of the tassels are perfect and I I love how the hang pass the hip line. Since my top was a dark shade I deiced to wear a light tone trousers, but not just any grey trouser. The side stripe pants are at the top of the trend report and has turned athleisure wear into in street wear slacks. You can embrace yours with a nice cap-toe bootie or a pair of dope platform kicks.
I thought of going a bit in time with today’s post, when the fabulous Diane Von Furstenberg invented the iconic wrap dress that was a symbol of femininity, women’s freedom, a staple, and so much more than just a dress.

From jerseys to silk, to long sleeves or no sleeves, from mini to maxi lengths, from wild prints to clean designs – there are infinite styles, and even more infinite ways of wearing a wrap dress.

This all white top elongates dramatic sleeves, so why not add your favorite crop to give it a chic definition. I decided to choose a all black crop top with embroidered hemline.
It’s often difficult to decide what to wear and how to wear it, especially in Miami’s scorching mid-summer heat. Shorts and a tank top might cut it in other parts of Florida, but Miami has a palpable passion for trend-setting style and beauty.

I decided to let my body breathe by wearing the perfect champagne metallic pleaded skirt.

To keep my outfit chic and classy, I styled it with a blue and white button up shirt. It definitely brought out that edgy look I was going for.

It’s feminine, flattering and a simple rust tank or tee keeps the look super polished. I decided to pair mines with the same color bottoms as well. To spice things up, my floral print and olive green Kimono was the ultimate go-to. Kimonos and Ruana wraps have been on trend the past few seasons and this spring will be no different. Not sure if you guys have noticed but platform shoes have become one of my favorite trends this season and it can be yours too. I decided to go bold and gold, by adding a metallic platform shoe.
Sometimes New York can be way too busy for heels... but who says you can't still embrace that on-the-go city look!

Spring is finally here and the word Japan evokes. Are you headed to a date night and have nothing to wear? Well I have your answer! First off some of you may be asking what the heck is a kimono??? The Kimono is a iconic garment that was worn for thousands of years by all Japanese. The word Kimono literally means a thing to wear and nowadays it is mainly an outfit for any occasion. It can be worn direct, without layers but more modernly worn as a robe or sheer layer. I paired mines with straight legs slacks and a strappy open toe sandal. They are also great for the summer over a swimsuit or a light weight layer with shorts or distressed jeans.

Forget the everyday Ugg boots and college sweat shirts, lets GO-DENIM!!! I'm usually challenged by denim but this time I was a big proponent for denim and leather. With denim never going out of style, it is possible to wear an all denim and blue outfit. An all denim and blue outfit can be mixed with hints of color to tone it down. My outfit today is a monochromatic outfit. Starting with the jacket, it isn't denim material but it the perfect denim shade. It is a light blue leather detailed jacket, so I paired it with a all white tank for contrast. Now, Lets talk about the jeans. First, I love the light wash super fitted jeans, Skinny leg jeans are always a girls favorite. I finally paired my look with a yellow handbag and neon open toe sandal.
As I was headed to my great uncle's funeral, all black is always the the ultimate go-to attire. Fashion is always changing, therefore it is important to keep tabs on what is deemed appropritate for more somber occasions. The struggle many seem to face when dressing for a funeral is to not offend the honor of the person who has passed while also being comfortable and feeling good in what you are wearing. Funerals are not about being flashy or showing off. This is the time to pull out your simple jewelry, minimal as possible. Today I wore a simple extended vest blazer that complimented a pair of tailered black trousers. To keep the attire fashionable I added a all black sheer long sleeve top and a sophisticated pointy toe pump. Taking this risk was the perfect and appropriate way to go.

I emphasized my femininity in this super cute turtle neck top with my casual off-the-shoulder structure for heightened style.
There are a few wardobe essentials that we lean on more than the classic white button down shirt. In crisp cotton or soft silk, its tailored shape brings elegance to colored denim shorts or just a simple distressed jeans. Tuck it in or let it hang loose; tie it in knots or roll up your sleeves to give it that fashionable cuff. You can't go wrong with this year-round essential.

Your white button-down can also be added with a little something extra, like a statement piece around the neck. When in doubt the white button up top is always something you can depend on.

It's pretty clear that the phenomenon of street style is here to stay. Keeping up to date with the latest in streetwear can be quite a daunting task. After attending OVO popup shop, I thought why not pair one of their hats with a red and navy reebok thrift zip up jacket. Longer shorts have taken urging women to step out of their comfort zone and I figured a pair of tailored bermuda shorts make the perfect summertime outfit. Add high heels and accessorize with a statement ring or bracelet and your good to go!
