Sugar Love Boutique Romper / Isabel Marant sandals 

The colors in this print are so vibrant, I love them. The shades of blue and moroccan pattern are inviting, but still subtle in a way. Ever since I've had this romper, I've worn it several times, because it's easy to. I wore it once to brunch with high heels, and another time to an outdoors dinner with these sandals and bag. Some of you have asked what I have been doing to my hair in regards to color- and the answer is absolutely nothing. After suffering heavy bleach damage, I don't use heat or any color on it anymore. I've let it do its thing. However, sulfate free shampoos have kept the blonde from turning colors. I will work on a hair post, but I must say, short hair is the way to go! So much easier to handle! 


Live in Levi's

These jeans are quite a bit different from the denim I typically wear. I tend to stick to distressed, ankle cut denim, especially for summer time. Now that we're approaching fall, I'm shifting into dressier jeans that I can wear with boots. I partnered with Levi's for the launch of Live in Levi's and got the Mid Rise Skinny Jeans to style. I'm short, so they look more high-waisted on me. However, I like that they stretch in all the right areas and quickly recover to their original shape; the feel of the denim is also super soft.

Best of Both Worlds

Ever since I moved to Miami, I've noticed so much about me has changed/grown. Of course, I moved here when I was 20 years old, so naturally, it was bound to happen. However, I am so thankful I was able to be in this city for these development years. There's not a lot that can compare to what "city-life" does for you. It diversifies you, and it creates a love in you for cultures and people. Namely Miami, with its laid back beach culture, yet glam energy, is to me, the perfect combination. One day, I will be in sequins and loubs at a fancy event, and the next, I will be in a cover up like the one I'm wearing- from a surfing brand. I wore a slip under it to make a dress, but its equally lovely over a bikini. Thank you for letting me have the best of both worlds, Miami - I love you forever. 


A La Elle

H&M skirt / J.Crew Top / Fashionphile Chanel Bag / Valentino Flats
This is such a frilly skirt that I can only pull it out when I'm feeling extra girly. I recently added these Valentino flats to my shoe collection, and I felt so giddy that I wanted to go a-la Elle Woods. This embellished top has been in my wardrobe for a long time, and typical of most J.Crew items, its just as wearable now as it was initially. I love that about J.Crew tops. Most of the blouses I get from there, especially the silk ones last me years. And going back to my rockstud flats (gidddyyyyy)..being that pink is not my first choice color, I was nervous about choosing these. However, I own the neon yellow heel version of these, and they add a great pop of color. I think these pink beauties will serve the same purpose with black, grey and navy outfits in the Fall/Winter months. If you are thinking about purchasing Valentinos, I say DO IT! They are the most comfortable. 



All items from Shop Emporium

I stopped by Shop Emporium this week, a boho-chic boutique located in the heart of Coral Gables, and got to style a couple looks with the help of super sweet boutique owner and style maven, Sara. We played around with her new stock, and some of the items that she thought might look good on me. I love her shop because I can always find great quality over-sized tees, and really unique pieces that she hand picks. Her accessories are personalized, and so delicate -- perfect for layering on. 

In my first look, she picked out these loose, denim pants for me, and I paired them with the softest striped tee I've ever worn. It's so comfy! I love pairing nautical blue stripes with black leather, so I wore my black flats for a casual shopping day.  

For my second look, we went a little more out there by pairing these patterned pants with a delicately embroidered sweatshirt and small layered jewels. 

I love supporting locally owned boutiques, and shopping at them is great because you get such unique items. Although Shop Emporium is Miami-based, they ship everywhere.
