It’s been a struggle trying to blog lately. I recently moved and I have been trying to hold my life together. I did go thrift shopping the other day and boy did I find wonderful goodies. I will be sharing them on a different segment on my blog in the next coming days. This top was actually from that trip 🙂
Top: Jealous Tomato ( Goodwill – thrifted )
Shoes: Madden Girl
Clutch: Jessica Simpson
This has got to be my favorite top this season. It is a knitted crop top from forever 21 and it has proven to be very versatile. It’s such a simple top but it’s definitely versatile (although I have only worn it with skirts) and the perfect summer piece. I plan on wearing this through our very mild fall and winter season.

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.

Spring time is Miami is a lot like summer time so that means we have very HOT days during this time of year. The big difference between spring and summer in Florida is 75 degrees! During spring time we usually get more days in the seventies and a nice breeze. Lately however, we have seen the 80’s and 90’s so its best to wear a minimal amount of clothing and drink lots of water.
For this outfit I kept it nice and simple – a nice “chiffon like” flowy crop top, blue/purplish jeans and my coral pumps from BCBG. This is one of those outfits you can wear during the summer/spring time to have lunch with friends or with that special someone – it looks so simple like I didn’t even try! The only thrifted item here is that cute faux-ostrich clutch that purchased at Goodwill for only $3.00 ( total steal 😉 ).
Crop top and mini’s are all the rave and everyone is wearing them. However, the most common way to wear them is by having the matching top and bottom. I remixed my look by pairing my tweed crop top with a (faux) leather mini skirt. What a better way to pair two winter classics. I kept this look extra simple by simply wearing my leather booties and a cool pair of sunglasses.

Since school started I have been quite busy. Currently I am playing catch up as I was away this weekend and was unable to blog or do any homework.I know, so early in the semester and I have already fallen behind, ;( . However, lets move it on to better news.
I bought this gorgeous skirt at goodwill a few months and I just could not believe how gorgeous this piece was. This is totally a vintage and/or “retro” piece and that is why I fell in love with it. I immediately knew I wanted to wear a crop top with it and when I bumped into this amazing crop top at Urban Outfitters, I knew I had to have it. I love the edginess the top gave the skirt but the skirt still keeps the outfit girly. I added these simply black ankle strap sandals and my black bag to complete my look. Hope you all like.

I have a thing for high-waisted jeans. I love them and I think I might love them a bit too much. I swear I have them in every color and shade possible( ok, maybe a bit exaggerated). I like that fact that they can be flattering and of course they hide my tummy so that is a plus. I was feeling a bit adventurous the other day and decided to take the the plunge and wear a crop top with it. I swear I don’t know why I was feeling confident but I did it. I report and say, it wasn’t too scary or too bad. The hat, if ya’ll can recall I posted it a few months ago on my Monday’s cravings segment ( which I promise to start rolling out again). I bought the hat for $9.99 at Urban Outfitters for their Black Friday savings, the hat was originally $39.00 and I am glad I only paid $9.99. While the hat is cute, I don’t think it is actually worth the extra $30.00 – to me, and this is my personal opinion – it is too “costume-y”. With this being said, I like it but if I was looking for something more durable and I would definitely not consider this one.
Oh, yes, my dog again.

Pencil Skirts. They can be sexy, feminine, trendy, & chic all at the same time. I bought this pencil skirt at the Gap last summer (14′) for $9.97 on Clearance. I still can’t believe that I am just getting around to wearing it. I love the distress look of the skirt and this was probably why I was sold on it ( besides the fact that it fits very nice 🙂 ). Anyway, I decided to wear it with this “vintage” French Connection crop-top I bought at Goodwill. I say vintage because believe it or not, this top is from the nineties; this why they say that fashion is recyclable. I kept it chic by wearing my lace up heels – hello x-mas present. I have a feeling that I will be wearing these shoes all year long!
P.S. – I got a new Hair Cut >.<

So today I totally did a throw back look; the nineties. That time when long messy “beach” hair, ripped jeans, black chunky boots, t-shirts & plaid shirts were a stable to being wrapped around our waists. I guess listening to Pearl Jam back to back may cause this to happen ( by the way, Pearl Jam might just be my FAVORITE band of all time!).
Pretty much everything here was purchased at Goodwill, except the boots. The shirt is actually “supposed” to be a cropped sweater BUT on my petite frame it fits more like a “normal” shirt so I tucked it in. The skirt is high waisted with gorgeous gold and black buttons. I finished off this look with dark chunky boots, a dark lip and my oh, so cool sunnglasses.
P.S. I know I didn’t do my Monday’s Craving segment, but I have finals this week! Therefore, I had zero cravings and lots of studying. Needless to say, the only thing I am craving this week, is for 100% on all of my exams!

Hi Loves and Happy Tuesday!
I love a nice pair of pleated pants, especially if they’re nice and fitted at the leg yet versatile enough to make it work for the that 9-5 or for a casual day. I paired the pants with a beautiful crop top I purchased about a year ago and quite frankly, I need to get this shirt taken in a bit. Now, I added this hot pink coat ( which also needs to be taken in ever so slightly ;( ) to show you that this outfit can be worn on chillier days with a nice coat. Please note, I was HOT AS HELL! It is 82 degrees out there today, I was melting! I only took pictures with the coat, there is no way I was wearing that, ha ha ha ha ha. I decided to make it this outfit a bit more glamours by accessorizing it with that bold bracelet and shoes; I gave it a contrast with the clutch,
