Winter is officially here! While I know that most of you have already been covered in snow, you are probably reading this and saying, “Is she serious?!” But, serious I am being in deed. The first day of Winter was yesterday and I must say that for us South Floridians the weather was actually warm compared to the last few days ( it’s been “nippy” and/or chilly here). Many of you might and might not know that it doesn’t really get cold here in Miami or South Florida for that matter. Our winters are EXTREMELY mild and some might even say we don’t get winter at all, which in all honesty is very true. The draw back about having to live somewhere warm is that you do not get to see snow ( ever ) and if you’re into fashion, you’ll never be able to bundle up and look fabulous. I promise though, I am not complaining. I have seen snow – don’t care for it and I can only handle so much cold; 50 degrees to be exact. So, with this being said, my fashion looks for winter will most likely be different than most bloggers and at times, you might think it’s summer/spring wear instead of winter wear ( gotta work with what I have). However, I am going to make it my mission to provide you with as many as “winter fashion” looks as possible.
Ok, the shoes are part of my Christmas present and as I mentioned in my previous post, I DO NOT do gift wrapping. Instead, as soon as the FedEx guy left, I ripped the bag open and wore my shoes immediately ( talk about being impatient!). During the day, I rocked the shoes with a pair of jeans, a black top, a black blazer and my blush colored bag. Since I was going to be out all day, I wanted an outfit that I could easily transition for an early Christmas dinner. The dinner was very casual and laid back, so I knew I could get away with this look. The only think I swapped out was my purse for the black clutch. The shoes were the talk of the evening I must add. They are absolutely gorgeous!!! I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. I had been craving for the Valentino’s original version ( see here ) for a while now but I can’t fork out $1000 for a pair. These however, fit the bill perfectly – they looked like the Valentino’s without the Valentino price tag.

Yes, more sparkle for me. Actually, I think I might be running out of sparkle ( if that even is possible) but I am not 100% sure if this is my last sparkling piece. I wanted to wear these shorts one last time before I departed with them. I really love them, but they have gotten to the point were they are too big on me.
I wanted to let the shorts do all the shinning so I did this whole black think. I wore a black button- up chiffon shirt with a faux-leather collar and sleeves, added a black blazer for a more “sharp” look, black leggings to fend off the cold and black heels. I really wanted to the shorts to shine and I really like sequin shorts with blazers. I did a cool red lip and my hair side swept. Unfortunately, I am going through an awkward stage with my hair. The bangs I did this summer are growing out and since I have curly hair, the shrinkage is unbearable. I am running out of ideas with my hair! Anyway, hope you like this look.

As my last post, I made it to Art Basel on Sunday night, the closing event. I have to say that every year that I attend Art Basel it just gets bigger and bigger. The art is amazing at Art Basel, there is sooo much to see and to experience. I took a few shots of the evening, see them here.
So, originally I had planned for a whole different outfit but being that it was chilly out I had to switch. Instead, I wore this comfy turtle neck shirt, faux-leather jeans, black heels and this gorgeous back. I pulled my hair back in a pony tail to keep it sleek. The heels are actually ankle straps but I removed the ankle straps to make them look like simple pumps. I added a matching bold lip to complete my look.

This was my Friday OOTD. Which most of the outfit was purchased at Goodwill.
I decided to wear this beautiful skirt from H&M that I found at Goodwill a while back. The skirt was still brand new with the tags. I paid $8.00 for the skirt, score! The shirt is also a Goodwill find, it’s a DKNY shirt and I paid $3.00 🙂 Lucky girl, I know. The clutch was also a Goodwill find and I paid about $3 for it as well.
It was a hot summer day again in Miami so this outfit was more than fitting.
I absolutely love this outfit, it was chic, simple and sweet. I have to admit though, the bangs made it look retro which was another cool factor to this outfit.
