Post-Swim Week Event

Jcrew Swimweek

With Swim Week happening in Miami, I have been following along to find out the latest swimsuit trends. I visited my friends from J.Crew at the Lincoln Road in Miami Beach store to checkout their swimwear collection.  There are so many cute bikinis and one-piece swimsuits, along with coverups and summer dresses, that I am really loving. I picked out a few that I can wear at the beach this summer. Like this white scalloped plunging one-piece, that I styled with a classic white button down to use as a coverup.  Also I want to invite you to a Post-Swim Week Shopping Party at J.Crew. On Saturday, July 20th from 5 to 7 pm, at the Miami Beach J.Crew at Lincoln Road.

Come by for an afternoon of styling, shopping and refreshments. Get a first look at the J.Crew swimwear collection and also enjoy an additional 20% off your purchase of $125 or more by RSVP’ing. Let me and the Lincoln Road J.Crew team help you pick out the perfect outfit. I will be showcasing some of my favorites pieces from their swimwear collection, and give you some tips on how to style and wear them.

Hope to see you there! See below for more info on the event.

Pleated minimal lines

Minimal Lines Rings Au-rate

I love the minimal approach to things and that reflects on my outfit choices also. From the accessories I wear, like dainty and minimal rings, to the dresses I get. Dresses like this pleated one from Ann Taylor with a Geometric pattern. I like clean lines, you may say, somewhat architectural. Hence the name of this blog and my main career. It’s all a way of expressing myself from head to toe.

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.

Plaid dress and White Booties

A trend that I have been really liking is Plaid. There is no other pattern that says it’s the holidays. J.Crew has several selections of plaid in dresses, shirts and pants. I opted for this J.Crew Plaid dress, because of its flowyness and flattering shape. Having a cinched waist makes for a good way to accentuate my figure. I am really liking how I styled this dress. I paired it with white booties and a white bag. And accessorized it with big chunky earrings and a red turban headband to go with the holidays theme. When dressing for the holidays, for me more is more! And that was the look I was going for this holiday outfit.

Also I would also like to invite you to my last event of the year with the team from J.Crew, for a Last Minute Gifts Event this week, at J.Crew in Dadeland Mall. This Saturday December 22nd from 6-8pm. Let the J.Crew team help you with any last minute shopping for some awesome gifts and you know also pick out something for you. I sure do shop for me when I go gift shopping.  See below for more info on the event.

All Pink Outfit

All Pink Outfit illustrationI am the girliest of girls when it comes to cutesy and pink things. I just love everything pink, and when I saw that there was a pop-up Museum of Ice Cream in town, I knew I had to go. The Museum  is an instagram (millennial pink) dream. The popularity of this venue made it be sold out every time I would check to buy tickets. But finally a few weeks before it’s final round my sister was able to find tickets to attend. Although it is a little pricey to go, it is all worth it when you dive into the sprinkle pool and start taking pictures of basically everything. Now don’t expect this to be an educational museum, it is more of an interactive venue that you go thru exhibits, more like a gallery I would say. While you eat ice cream as you move thru the exhibits.

Obviously I had to dress up with an outfit that match the museum so I opted to wear all pink! I got these bright pink paper bag pants and wore it with the Pink as my Vibes t-shirt from the line of my friend Annie The Alchemist.

The Everyday Look

The Everyday Look

I feel that in the past year, I have been dressing more casual. Using as an Everyday Look, basic pieces. It all comes about in my essence of simplifying my day to day. Typically I have really long work days. They start at the gym at 5am and then it goes into a packed day meetings and work. In the middle of all this, I go to fashion events or head on to draw fashion illustrations either for me of for a client.

It sounds like a lot, but this is what bloggers that have very demanding day jobs do. All because we really love sharing stories, and for me sharing my artwork and fashion ideas. So saving a few minutes, everyday. Specially while dressing up, comes as a precious earning. So I can expend less time thinking what to wear, and in that time do things that I love. It is just so much easier when outfits are put together using basic apparel. They look good and kinda pulled together.

Transitioning Layering for Fall

 

If you are in Miami you know we just had a few days of “cold” weather. For us meaning we can start Transitioning Layering for Fall, and take out a few winter pieces to wear in south Florida. One of my favorite ways to do this, is by taking a dress I wore during the summer and wearing it together with a turtleneck underneath.

The weather here it is still not enough to wear boots, but I can totally see this look with knee high boots, or maybe ankle booties in a blush tone, just like these thick heel pumps. I wanted to break up the girly-ness of this dress by adding a fisherman cap and a dark purple lipstick.  Because a little change is good.
