In the Trenches

Hi guys! Here’s a look I wore a few weeks ago, but didn’t get around to posting sooner as I’ve been feeling a bit “In the Trenches”.  I’m currently getting over the second upper respiratory infection I’ve managed to acquire throughout this pregnancy and boy has it taken its toll on me!  Congestion has actually been a constant throughout my pregnancy  and apparently its a constant for many women due to the increased blood flow to all mucous membranes, caused by the high levels of estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy.

Miami’s recent temperamental weather hasn’t been much help either, but at least its presented me the chance to wear one of my favorite statement pieces, this maxi sleeveless trench. You’ve seen me wear it on the blog before here, but I’ve worn it numerous times with everything from short skirts and high-waisted shorts to midi-skirts and jeans.  What makes this sleeveless trench a major statement piece is the dramatic length which can turn even the simplest cotton bodycon dress into a head turning ensemble.  Because being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t turn heads in admiration!

Hope you guys have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

xoxo,

Martha

Gypsy Soul

It’s been quite some time since my last blog post, blame it on my gypsy soul.

If you follow me on Instagram then you’re probably well aware that I was recently wandering around Europe for 2 weeks and I can’t wait to (find the time to) share my travel diary with you all!

As for today, here’s a look I wore a few weeks back that fashionably portrays my gypsy soul.  I came across this hi-low maxi skirt on the clearance rack at Express and I simply could not resist its down to earth gypsy vibes. The hi-low trend is a merger between the mini skirt and maxi skirt and is the perfect way to show off your gams (and killer shoes) while still being comfortably covered. I love them for summer with heeled or flat sandals, but will easily transition into fall paired with booties or knee high boots.

What’s your take on the hi-low trend?

Tribal Print

Hey Dolls! I hope you all had a nice weekend!  I am simply glad that I am finally recuperating from the dreaded flu I suffered from this past week and that I felt well enough to attend my friend’s bridal shower on Saturday.  I wore this adorable tribal print fit-n-flare TOPSHOP dress.  Whenever I wear tribal prints I can’t resist the urge to accessorize with fringe! They just go together like teepees and Indians, don’t you agree?

I wish you all a healthy and productive week!

Razzle Tassel

First and foremost, HAPPY FRIDAY!! I am so excited for the weekend!  No major plans yet, but tonight I am going to happy hour with one of my beautiful cousins at Tobacco Road to celebrate their 101 year anniversary! To those of you who are not from Miami, Tobacco Road is one of the top and longest running bars in Miami offering great food and live music every night! What are your happy hour/ weekend plans?

A few months ago and prior to my trip to California I became obsessed with all things FRINGE!! Dingly, dangly, sexy swinging fringe! It’s fun, it’s fierce and I just love the way it sways with the movement of your body!  Tassels are a type of fringe (in twisted form) and today’s look is all “Razzle Tassel,” from my new favorite necklace, the Bianca Tassel Necklace by Stella & Dot, to my fringe detail, ankle cuff stiletto by MIA Shoes.

This uber comfy sweater dress was a great find at the H & M in Union Square in San Francisco and I just love the sexy, peek-a-boo crochet detail on each side! Comfy and sexy! What more can a girl ask for?
