Shopping with Ann Taylor

Shopping with Ann Taylor

It is time to continue with the shopping spring kick. This time is shopping with Ann Taylor. I went into the Coral Gables Ann Taylor at the Shops at Merrick Park a few days ago and picked up some really cute outfits with the help of their super nice team. One of my favorites is this floral pleated wrap dress, that is so feminine. I paired it with bright pink accessories. To complete the girly-ness, I wore a custom hand painted bag by me.
I also wanted to share with you. This week the Friends of Ann Event kicks off this Wednesday, March 6th, for Ann Taylor Cardholders and goes through Monday March 10th, where you can enjoy 40% off your purchase!*. For this, I will be having a special shopping event for my readers in store. This Saturday March 9th from 2-4pm at Ann Taylor at the Shops at Merrick Park in Coral Gables. Where you can get the chance to chat with me and I’ll show you my favorite pieces of the new collection. Also as an added bonus, if you mention this post you will receive an additional 10% off. (at the Coral Gables location only).

Spring with J.Crew

Spring with Jcrew

Spring is almost here, and with it time to update the closet. This means, it is time to go shopping. For this post, I have partnered with J.Crew to show you a transitional outfit for Spring. I opted for a black pleated skirt (that you can basically wear with everything) and a pullover striped light sweater from J.Crew. The pattern and scallop neckline of this top has me swooning, it is so girly and cute. I accessorized it with oversized pearl barrettes, which have been a perfect accessory for my short blunt bob hair. They basically dress up any outfit I’m wearing, it polishes the outfit and it works to make my hair look like just done. For shoes, I am wearing pink sneakers, to make it a more low key everyday look. Super comfortable to walk around and do errands thru out the day.

Also I would also like to invite you to come and shop with me and the J.Crew team, for a Spring Shopping event his week, at J.Crew at Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. This Saturday February 28th from 4-6pm. Let’s shop for the new spring collection and see a few of my favorites.  See below for more info on the event.

See you there!

Cooking with Parmigiano Reggiano

One of my favorite things is cooking. I say that if I would ever leave architecture (and illustrating) I would become a chef. I consider myself a foodie and truly love making new dishes. Last week my friends from South Florida Bloggers invited me to attend a cooking class with Parmigiano Reggiano at the Biltmore Culinary Academy. Obviously having the chance of pretending to be a world class chef and cook in a real chef’s kitchen, I gladly attended.
