I am a huge fan of denim – hence, I own denim tops, skirts, jeans, shorts and dresses. I love the versatility and the comfortability of the fabric. Denim is the one item in your closet that will NEVER go out of style. I was in the mood for a denim skirt and went I remembered I had this acid wash denim shirt, I knew I just had to sport it.
The one thing I love about this outfit is that it looks sporty. The shirt gives the outfit a very relaxed look, although I am wearing heels. The shoes really pull this outfit together by making it look sporty but the skirt adds that splash of feminine. The combination of the acid wash shirt and the ripped skirt, really play into the sportiness and rustic look of this outfit. I wanted to add a dark pop of color so I opted for my red clutch and bold red lips to really seal 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 😉 ).
When I saw that fringe was back with a vengeance, I knew I had to get me a fringe skirt. I was lucky enough to come across this gorgeous piece on Romwe and I knew I had to have it. It is a very nice skirt that is perfect for spring & summer as the fabric is light weight.
There is something about different textures and fabrics that really make camel/beige pop. This season is all about neutral shades and what a better way to make this outfit pop with different tones and textures of neutrals. This is one of those easy outgoing outfits that can really make you stand out from the crowd.

Vintage, thrifted clutch.
There is something so crisp about a white button up shirt and black pants. I consider it to be one of my favorite classic looks because you can wear this ensemble either up or down and look very well put together. For this look, I wanted to wear it up but if you wanted to wear this down, it can be easily achieved by wearing a pair of converse, less makeup, a cute cross body or backpack and instead of the chunky chain a nice big watch or earrings.
For this look, I wanted my accessories to do all the talking. Since the colors are very neutral I decided that I wanted to keep that neutrality but with a bit of “spice”. I added these gorgeous patent leather mules that I purchased at Goodwill for $7.00 and this chunky “snake-like” chain to really make this outfit stand out. I finished it with red lips and red toe nails.

Leopard print by far is my favorite print. I love the sexiness, edginess and daringness that the print embodies when you walk into a room. That is why, when I saw this shirt on sale at H&M, I knew I had to have it because it is such a simple shirt that can make any outfit pop. The other reason why I purchased it? It was only $7.00 ! I kept things pretty simple and neutral with this outfit. I wore a pair of black pants, a black coat, a gold purse and white heels for that pop of color. I love how these shoes have that gold chain on the shoe. It gives that simple white heel that extra oomph.
Coat: Tahari ( Purchased at Goodwill )
I am finally back in town and on my computer! Yay! Life without the internet is hard people!!! Ok, I’m done with the exclamation points. I am happy that I am back in the comfort of my home but sadly I am not 100% settled in. I have to unpack ( I did some serious shopping at the Outlet Malls) and do some serious catching up on school work. Today’s outfit is simple and to the point. I wore denim on denim today and added a bit of chic by wearing gold accents ( shoes, watch etc…).What I love about this outfit is that it is simple and chic – this is definitely one of those laid back easy going outfits.
Coat: American Apparel ( Purchased at Goodwill )
It has been very cold in South Florida ! I mean, like HIGH of 51 degrees ( low of 37) where I am currently posting from ( Orlando, FL) and that is unusual for this part of the Southern State. I am currently at my in-law’s and this happened to be the weekend that they are switching over from Internet providers so I had to use the internet the good ol’ fashion way. Now, this isn’t your local McDonalds or Starbucks because come to find out their internet is very very slow. Nope, I had to come to the library! Do those even exist anymore?! Yes, they do people, lol! So here I am at the library using the internet because apparently my in-laws are currently living the dark ages. Oh, thee how I miss the convenience of wi-fi.
We are here for a few days and when I travel, I always check the weather ( especially this time of the year) to make sure that I pack the appropriate clothes for the weather. Thankfully I packed warm sweaters because it is cold and if you are familiar with Orlando malls, they are mostly outdoors. I am actually wearing a repeat sweater that did a post on a few months back. This time around I am wearing my sweater with a pair of black pants, black boots and a grey jacket. I do have another much larger coat with me because lord knows it will get cold later on tonight.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
When in doubt, wear neutrals. That is the rule I have made for myself when I have absolutely no idea what to wear and just want to rush out the door. My second rule? When in doubt, wear a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. This could be any t-shirt and jeans really. Finally, my last rule: when in doubt, wear heels and a jacket ( just in case it gets chilly). Of course, if you are going somewhere extremely casual then wear comfy shoes but do take your jacket. This is a simple look that can be pulled off any day really. It requires minimal effort, its simple and it doesn’t look like you tried too hard, which in my case, I didn’t.
The jeans I bought at the Gap last year and it is their boyfriend jeans. I did not buy them ripped like that actually. What really happened is I have the biggest tights and knees. Whenever, I bend or crouch down the small tear that they had turned into a huge tear. Luckily, I don’t care so I think they accidentally turned out pretty well. I paired the jeans with a simple tank, a jacket and these gorgeous heels I scored at Steve Madden two weeks ago for $19.99. Lucky girl. The purse happens to be my favorite. I bought it a thrift store for $2.00.

We’ve been attacked by a “cold front” here in Florida – so that means, boots, coats, scarves, etc…I should mention that by cold front, I mean high of 50’s. Yes, I know we are very weak down here but hey, it happens. I went out last night to celebrate my girlfriend’s big 3-0 birthday. I knew I wanted to wear these thigh-high boots and a dress, so I pulled this out of the closet. I wore this dress once already with purple heels but I wanted to try something different this time around. The dress a pretty flair so I knew the boots would look really nice. Since it was cold out, I threw on this coat and I also wore black pantyhose to keep me extra warm. To finish this look, I wore a bold lip color and clutch.
Boots: Steve Madden
Purse: Kirna Zabête for Target
It is so windy and cool outside that I wish I would have known to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Instead, I wore this summer dress I had been waiting to wear because I thought it was hot outside. However, after having brunch and trying to beat the rain, I realized that this outfit was a bad idea. Regardless of how bad of an idea it was, it is still a cute outfit. This is another dress I bought at Loehmann’s about a year ago when they were having a store liquidation sale. I seriously got this dress for an amazing deal – $20.00! That was about 80% off retail, SCORE! The shoes were another good deal I scored at my local Salvation Army for $6.99 & the bag, well this was one of those pieces I got extremely lucky with. I call this an investment piece because this was actually $20.00 – way more than what I would normally pay for a bag.
