Fall Florals

   
    
    
 The leaves may be turning but that doesn’t stop me from wearing pretty florals. The key to staying true to the season is in the colors…look for navy, orange, purple or any other fall colors. I absolutely love this top by Daniel Rainn. I kept it modern by pairing it with flares. The denim is from a few seasons ago but another pair that would work is the Joy in Pulse by DL1961. You can shop my entire outfit at LaLa Couture Boutique. 

XOXO,

Fall Transition

   
    
   
I can already taste the pumpkin spiced lattes, hear the crowd cheer of a football game, and feel the cool crisp breeze….ok so I’m dreaming a little bit…

But fall really is right the corner! It’s the time where we ditch the bright summer colors for rich earth tones and replace the sandals with booties. It’s FALL Y’ALL!

This outfit is mostly items I already had in my closet, since most fall styles are just now hitting the stores (plus it’s SO hot here in Florida that I wouldn’t be caught dead in cashmere right now…even for a blog post! 😝).

My white blazer is from Zara. Yes, you can wear a white blazer year round! To me it’s the perfect transition piece. Find a similar one here.

I paired it with faux leather shorts from Free People from many seasons ago (buy similar here), a silk tank by Rory Beca (new and available at LaLa Couture-call to order), and heels by Schutz

The leopard foldover clutch by Clare V is one of my favorite purchases for fall…it’s super roomy without being oversized. Last but certainly not least, my all time favorite go-to accessory is by none other than my favorite accessory designer Ted Rossi. You can special order the leather talon cuff from LaLa Couture Boutique-it comes in a variety of colors and styles. Call 954-712-1100.

Mexico, I Love You

DSC_0308DSC_0224

Traveling: my second love. My husband and I have been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling over the years, and one of our favorite destinations is Mexico. We have seen and explored many parts of this beautiful country; from Mexico City to La Paz to our latest vacation destination: Puerto Vallarta.

Despite the 90 degree weather and ultra intense humidity (that’s saying a lot from this Florida gal), we were able to enjoy all that this coastal town had to offer. We wandered through Zona Romantica (the Romantic Zone) and the Malecón where the streets were filled with the aroma of Mexican spices and local vendors setting up their shops. I got a lot of looks and compliments on my sandals 🙂

Stopping for a refreshing Michelada (beer and lime juice with spices), we realized that we were some of the only Americans in town. Puerto Vallarta is where the Mexican people  come to vacation.

My husband and I have never been “resort” type of people…always choosing to stay more in more rustic places. Don’t get me wrong, I love a 5-star hotel, but when we have the chance, we prefer to be a little bit more off-the-beaten-path. A bit more authentic 🙂

We stayed in a beautiful Villa, and score…it was very inexpensive and we had a wonderful local woman cook for us. Waking up every morning to freshly made chilaquiles and guacamole could make a girl stay here forever. By far my favorite part of the villa was the pool and the view overlooking the Bay of Banderas. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I enjoyed putting outfits together for this trip; there were a few things I wanted to wear but couldn’t due to the extremely hot temperatures.

All in all, we truly enjoyed our stay in Puerto Vallarta. Hasta la próxima, México!

Faux Fur Fix

DSC_0155

Faux fur…I own way too many pieces of it for a Florida girl. Coats, vests, stoles…you name it…I’ve got it. You could call it a borderline obsession. People up North might poke a little fun at us Southerners; we wear our faux fur when the mercury drops below 70.

No brand makes tops quite like Rails LA. Known for their soft, comfortable fabric, Rails really hits the mark on the classic button-down. I love the print mixing on the rolled cuff of the sleeve. I chose a cranberry colored plaid for this outfit; I love anything burgundy for fall!

Leather pants are a huge trend this season, but if you can’t afford leather, opt for a coated denim. It’s a similar style with an easier price point. These amazing stiletto skinnies are by Current/Elliott. Trend alert: look for a pair that has zip detail on the bottom.

To complete the look, I added a neutral Rebecca Minkoff bag (my absolute FAVORITE bag of the moment), navy panama hat, stiletto heels, Chloe sunnies and a gorgeous Ted Rossi cuff.

Here’s to a fashionable fall y’all!

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.
