As you can tell, I’ve done a bit of ombre-like craziness to my hair for the summer. Wanted something new and different, and that’s exactly what I got. I’ve always been the type to be crazy with my clothes and accessories, never touching my hair. So this was a fun experiment. (and definitely an eventful experience) So now the question is … What do you think?

Early in the AM yesterday, I had a lovely breakfast date with Adrian at starbucks. We love to grab breakfast together and get any of our two favorites: the original cuban breakfast (cafe con leche, tostadas, croquetas….the works.) or the breakfast sandwiches at Starbucks. I love spending time with my beau!
To say I have a “favorite piece” from this outfit would be 1. a lie and 2. a very difficult lie to come up with. I’ll start off with my shoes. Go Jane sent them over to me a few days ago and I instantly fell in love. I’m infatuated with it’s southwestern print and bright colors. Definitely a summer statement piece. Let’s not forget the amazing prices at GoJane.com. Their website is definitely my one stop shop for a good steal on a hot pair of heels. Any shoe I’ve bought from them has always been an attention grabber.
Next, we switch our attention to my necklace. I’m a HUGE fan of Dannijo jewelry! I wish I had what it took to be able to own a piece from their collection. But I don’t. So cue in the hunt for a statement “bib style” necklace that isn’t going to make my wallet scream. After researching online, something my friends and family have no clue how I get it done, I got it done. I found the perfect steal. Thank you SamMoon.com! They have such a great variety of jewelry at extremely affordable prices. Instead of putting down almost $500 for the Dannijo bib, I spent $13.99. Yes. For real. I’m not kidding.
Now, let’s take a walk into a neighborhood I’m most familiar with…Broke City. My top is from Orly Shani’s (contestant in NBC’s Fashion Star) new clothing line! I’m a huge fan of her brand Tuc + Wes because it’s so relatable to me, a true broke city chick. All her shirts have great graphics that say “strapped” “over drawn” and the original phrase “broke city”. I’ve had the opportunity to share a few emails with her and she’s such a sweetheart.
Hope everyone is enjoying their week back to reality after the long weekend. I know I’m still adjusting! XOXO

The weather has been extremely grey and rainy this weekend. MEEEH!!!! Needed to brighten up my day with some bright colors so I layered this neon blouse over my basic v-neck and white jeans.

I’ve been all about basics lately with my crazy schedule, but I’ve managed to spruce them up a bit with patterns and heels. Like I mentioned in the sneaky peeky post, it’s my first time experimenting with turban inspired headbands and I must say I was quite amused. I actually went back to F21 and bought two more. It’s the impulsive shopper in me. (I mean, you can’t really pass them up at less than 5 bucks right?).

step one: keep those feets warm. I’m a sock freak. It seems like I have a million pairs, all different colors and patterns. But I’m not as big of a fan like this guy: SOCKS.
step two: throw on a blazer, cause here in Miami there’s no need for coats. I love this blazer cause it’s the perfect match for any season. Now for the chilly weather, and with a tank and shorts in the Summer. Now, let’s focus our attention to those black hidden lapels. Aren’t they awesome? Goes great with a monochromatic look.
step three: It’s scaaaaarf time. Since I’m a girl who loves that pop of color, I couldn’t resist buying this scarf. Even though it’s not that cold here, it’s always good to keep a scarf handy. It’s less clunkier than a jacket.
step four: please put some shoes on.
step five: add your bling or start your arm [insert synonym to the word party here].
and KA-POW. you’re ready to take on the day…or night.
