The denim blazer for Fall

Transitioning to fall
A denim blazer and all white…

On several street style blogs, I have seen the denim blazer (or coat) as an upgraded and more formal looking version of the ever living distressed denim jacket. I love that this blazer version, can be worn to transition from summer to fall, specially in Miami  (where we don’t really have seasons) it can be worn without layering.  I wore it with an all white basics like I did with with skinnies and a silky tank, but it could also go well with a short dress under it.

I also accessorized it with a super cute Agate long necklace that local web shop Amoura Designs sent me this handcrafted necklaced made in Egypt.

See below for more pics and how to shop the look!

Acacia Swimwear St.Tropez dress in Peahi (via iShine365), French Connection Elmyra Pumps (On Sale here), DIY Pearl and Tassel necklace (similar here)

I have a few pics I haven’t posted so I decided to clean the roll and start posting. I wore this outfit for a cocktail party at Soho Beach House in Miami Beach.  This blue slip dress from Acacia Swimwear has been a life saver, as it can be worn pretty much for any occasion. I have dressed it up with pearls and pumps (like on this post), dressed down with flats or sandals or simply worn as a beach coverup.

Prints and a little DIY necklace

City Park
At Prospect Park, NY with a patterned dress from H&M CONSCIOUS (on sale here) & self made tassel necklace

This is another of the outfits that I wore around New York City. Once again I was meeting friends for a picnic at the park, but this time at Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

I had bought this printed dress from H&M CONSCIOUS line, thinking that I truly don’t own dresses with so busy prints, but it was on sale so why not. I paired it with comfortable black slip-ons for walking and I did a little DIY conversion to my Gorjana lariat necklace, that I have been wearing so much lately (see here), by tying to the end a purple tassel.

My Best T-shirt

My best t-shirt
My best t-shirt (similar here)

I wore this outfit during a really hot day in New York city, as I went on a stroll thru Central Park to meet friends. One of the things I always pack when I travel are comfy t-shirts, they are the easiest thing to wear and you can layer them, dress them up or down or even wear them to sleep. As many, I have embarked on the search for the best t-shirt and I have some basic ones that I love, but this graphic tee is soft and expresses precisely what it is, so it does the job for now.

Travelling Solo

Travelling and taking selfies
Travelling and taking selfies

I have always liked travelling, the idea of taking a plane and waking up in another city excites me. Since becoming single I have always dreaded the idea of travelling by myself. But don’t get me wrong I love my time alone it gives me time to think, but for me usually travel included a companion.

Living the fear behind I booked a plane ticket to NYC. I know this city well, so it felt like home.  Walking up and down Madison Ave, I did a little shopping, I reconnected with a few friends that I haven’t seen in a while, I had a nice meal at a trendy restaurant by myself and went to the MET to see a fashion exhibit.

With all and all I got over the fear of travelling alone and I have already booked my next flight.

A regained LBD

LBD and a Bucket Bg
A paneled LBD and a Bucket Bag

While cleaning out my closet over the weekend I noticed that I have a bunch of little black dresses, many that I don’t wear anymore, like this paneled one from BCBGMAXAZRIA. I had forgotten I had this dress, it was one of my favorite ones when I got it a few years ago. But re-descovering that old dress in the darkest corner of the closet made me happy and I’m giving it another spin in life.
