Ladies and Gents, this skirt is HOTT!
Today I bring you an exciting outfit that I had been dying to show off for a while. I bought this skirt back in March for my birthday but because of some unforeseen circumstances, I was not able to wear it. However, on Friday I told myself that I would finally wear it because it just had been hanging pretty in my closet and looking at it always made me sad ( because I hadn’t worn it). I have to say the amount of people that asked me where I bought was astonishing. My boyfriend gave me the side eye when I told him I was wearing this in public and by the end of the night, he was irritated ( not really more like amused) by the amount of people that stopped me to either compliment me or ask me, “Where did you get that skirt”?
I knew that I wanted a white shirt to go with this skirt because I really wanted the skirt to be the focal point of the outfit. I really did not want to use another color that would have either overshadow the skirt or made the outfit look to costume-y. I also decided to opt for a pair of matching pink ankle straps because they made this outfit look effortlessly chic.
I really hope you all love this look.

Hey loves! As you all may or may not know, I am from Miami, Florida and I love my city dearly. Part of growing up in Miami ( besides the beaches) is the exposure to different latin american cuisines, music and culture.I myself am from Latin America , I am from a Honduras, a country located in Central America. Every last Friday of every month, Calle Ocho which is an avenue (a very long one) located in Little Havana, a predominately Cuban neighborhood, hosts a street festival called Viernes Culturales or Cultural Friday’s where street vendors, musicians and restaurants step out of their enclaves to bring food, music and local souvenirs to locals and tourists. On the same strip, there’s a Dominos park, an ice cream shop, an old school jazz bar ( made new school), a theater and plenty of cigar shops that are all reminiscent of old Cuba. While Calle Ocho is a long avenue, the event is held within a 4 block radius, so you are able to enjoy everything that is offered that evening. Here are some wonderful pictures I took for you all to enjoy. If you ever happen to be in Miami on the last Friday of the month, don’t forget to stop by Calle Ocho in Little Havana. Happy Sunday, Karla.
