Paradise in Palm Print

IMG_4607IMG_4600purseIMG_4611IMG_4621IMG_4593

What I wouldn’t give to spend every day in this type of paradise! The truth is, I live here, but rarely get time to come down to the beach. I was SO excited to spend some time here this weekend! And in my new to-die-for palm print swimsuit! I wore it here as a top…love that it does double duty! And the best part gals…it’s only $24!!

My shorts are very flattering (sometimes it’s hard to find high-waisted bottoms that are flattering!) from Lulu’s. My woven bag is also from Lulus and is a MUST HAVE trend for the spring/summer! Only $64! My slides I got from Forever 21 last year but am linking similar ones. My hat is by J Crew from two seasons ago, but linking similar ones. My earrings are by Marlyn Schiff. My necklace is my every day go-to by Sonya Renee.

XOXO,

As we transition from summer to fall here in South Florida, I’ll soon be retiring the shorts for jeans, but for now I’m loving all shorts by One Teaspoon. I can’t get enough! There are no other shorts like them; they have distressed detailing and a super sexy fit that shows off a bit of leg.

Booties with shorts create a great street style look. These Sam Edelmann moto booties remind me of the Chloe Suzanna Stud Bootie (minus the studs and the price tag.) Bonus: they are ridiculously comfortable.

One of my favorite brands of graphic tees is Chaser. Their fabric is super soft and their graphics are uber cool. I happen to LOVE the “Made in the USA” eagle tank because it’s a little bit rock-n-roll.My accessories are from various places. I usually lean toward wearing more gold, but I loved silver with this outfit; it also brings out the silver detailing on the boots. I added one of my favorite floppy hats to complete the look.

My dear friend and photographer, Kristin Potenti and I had a really fun time shooting in this location. Of course I had to take a photo with the “No Trespassing” sign. A bit mischievous, I know 🙂

We also happened to catch the train as it was going by…

Her Royal Catness

Royal blue- one of my all-time favorite colors. It’s a shade that is flattering on every skin tone. I mixed up the look by adding a touch of leopard and leather (it’s vegan leather.)

This leopard top comes from one of my favorite emerging designers, Brittany Rose Collections. Check out her website here.

A simple black heel with an ankle strap adds sex appeal. I am loving the new line by Schutz! Top it off with a leather talon cuff by Ted Rossi (my favorite and most-worn accessory) and you’ve got yourself the perfect nighttime outfit.

Lime, Stripes and Sneaks

How do you make a monochrome print stand out? Add a pop of color! Here, I paired an oldie but goodie Susana Monaco skirt in lime with a black and white striped top from Macy’s.

To keep it casual and sporty-chic, I chose my go-to sneaks: slip-on white converse. These are super comfy and look great with just about anything; everything from dresses to jeans to in-between.

I completed the look by adding my favorite panama hat and snakeskin leather crossbody bag (it also converts into a clutch.) The turquoise really complements the lime.

When I was younger, I remember always wanting to wear heels walking around the city, and my mom used to always shake her head and say, “You’re going to regret it!” And I always did. I’m so glad sneakers are back in style! I’ll save the heels for girl’s night out.
