Fancy Wednesday: Booties

As much as I would LOVE to start posting “Fall Fancies” to include my favorite fall trends such as moto-jackets and over- the-knee boots, let’s face it, what kind of psycho would I appear to be– considering I live in Miami!

BOOTIES, however, are the perfect way to slowly ease into Fall without suffering from heat stroke.  Whether you prefer sheer, zippered, lace-up, studded or fringed booties, pair them with your short skirts and shorts (for the time being) for a sexy and edgy Semi-Fall look!

Check out my Bootie “Fancies” below and click on the pic for shopping info!

Wild Ballerina

As you may have noticed, I am a shoe hoarder.  However, despite my obsession with shoes, I find shoes to be the most uncomfortable piece of clothing ever created.  Yes, even more uncomfortable than the bra.  Perhaps it’s due to my abnormally large, uncomfortably shaped feet?  Whatever the case, before these adorable Jessica Simpson Ballerina Flats, I was convinced that I could never wear a shoe for longer than 2 hours without experiencing some discomfort.  Identical to a ballerina “pointe shoe” at first sight you think tough, stiff and hard to break in. Well, I’m no real ballerina; and these are no real pointe shoes.

These flats are seriously the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my uncomfortable feet.  They are as soft as Isotoners yet as stylish as the Royal Ballet. And oh yea, they’re leopard print! They are also available in black, coffee, natural and grey leopard, but no matter what color you choose this will be the most comfortable shoe your feet will ever twinkle toe in.  The perfect shoe for travel! I’m in love with a pair of shoes! SHOCKER!

Thank you for entertaining my fashion obsessive rants! I’ll stop here.

Love you guys! Nite nite!

Summer Lovin’

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Yup! Summa Time! And nothing says summer quite like maxi dresses! I’ve had this gorgeous Jessica Simpson pleated maxi dress sitting in my closet since my friend’s pre-wedding celebration in Mexico as seen in this post.

I knew the next time I wore this dress I wanted to style it in a more casual fashion, therefore I opted for another summer staple no woman (or man) should be without; a Blazer Vest!  If you know me, you know I have an obsession with blazers.  Well, blazer vests are just perfect for our steamy Miami weather, however they also transition well into the fall and winter months.  Not that Miami has fall or winter, but just follow along.  Blazer vests are incredibly versatile, they pair great with shorts, skirts, pants or leggings and I just love pieces that can be dressed up and down for the day or night.

I am a little sad I couldn’t get pictures that truly depict the flow and beauty of this dress,  it was actively raining while my dear friend Teri snapped the photos below.  I’m hoping for better weather this weekend!

Wedding Bells Ring in Playa Del Carmen

There are few things that bring me more joy than traveling, but the before and after of traveling is always a nightmare.  Getting back into the groove of reality and catching up on all the missed duties at home and work is tough (hence the delay in posting this blog about my trip). Well, enough about my first world problems….

I recently had the joy and honor of traveling to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico to attend the wedding of my two wonderful friends Michael and Amanda n/k/a “The Mestres.” My lover boy and I along with about 20 other of our close friends stayed at the all-inclusive RIU Palace Resort.  I had never been on a trip with so many of my close friends and all staying in the same resort.  The result was pure bliss and complete madness…Let’s just say it was a trip none of us will ever forget.

The actual wedding ceremony and reception took place at the majestic archeological park Xcaret, which is basically the main attraction and a “must see” location when visiting the Riviera Maya.  Xcaret is absolutely breathtaking and I have been fortunate enough to attend (now) two weddings at this magnificent venue.  I had such an amazing time at the wedding reception that I completely slacked on taking enough pictures of the grandiose cave with surrounding underwater rivers that the reception took place in.  However, being the major foodie I am, I did not fail to snap pics of the exquisite meal served consisting of a mouth-watering  tuna tar tar appetizer, Mar y Tierra entrée and two varieties of desserts.

The days following the wedding were filled with Sun, Fun and of course Fashion… Lol!  Check out the pics of the Fun in the Sun and of course, what I wore.
