Work Style Wednesday: Summer Frocks

Summer is upon us and nothing spruces up one’s summer work style quite like a colorful frock, or two!  Dresses are the ultimate summer must have and when it comes to my summer work style, I love bypassing the sometimes tedious task of mixing and matching tops and bottoms.  Which means that during the summer, I stock up on dresses, frocks and anything that will keep me cool and effortlessly stylish!

Lucky for me Nordstrom currently has a drool worthy selection of beautiful summer dresses for virtually any occasion, all under $150.00!!

I’ve picked my top 8 Work Style Summer Frocks below, which ones would you love to add to your summer wardrobe?

Work Style Wednesday: Furry Monotones

The cold air has finally made its way down to sunny Miami and I couldn’t be more excited! And neither could my most recent “furry” impulse purchase! No, I didn’t get another cat!

I’ve had this perfect, furry little vest sitting pretty in my closet since Black Friday and it may, or may not have made love to one of the many leopard printed garments in my closet, giving birth to this furry little number here; making that two furry impulse purchases, but who’s keeping count, right?

Fur and all things furry, are currently stirring quite a “fury” in the fashion world right now and despite suffering from a shortage of cold weather, I simply can’t resist the opportunity to give into this soft and fuzzy trend!

In addition to all things soft and furry I am also currently tickled by the color “Blush” so I opted for soft blush skinny pants and blush details and accessories to marry the soft neutrals in the furry vest.  The result is a sweet, soft monotone look, which I simply fell in love with.

As you know, its Work Style Wednesday so don’t forget to take advantage of the countless work style inspiration ideas below!

Fall Fun

Hey strangers! It’s been much too long since my last post. If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I’ve been away on an adventurous vacation in Nicaragua! If you don’t follow me on Instagram, well you know what to do!

Between hiking volcanos and canyoning to fishing in the ocean and living in a tree house, I think it’s safe to say that time and WIFI were nowhere to be found in this adventure. With so many exciting things to share, I’ll be gladly playing a heavy game of catch up on here!

As for today, here’s a fun look for fall! Transition those little flared skirts from summer to fall by throwing in tights and booties. And as for the staple “secretary blouse” or “neck tie blouse”, its everywhere for fall, magazines, catalogs, look books and fahion blogs. I love the femininity and versatility of the neck tie blouse. Wear it in a loose bow, loose knot (as seen below) or simply untied.  What do you think?

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!

xoxo

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!

Fancy Wednesday: SHARKS!!!!!

Shark Week is back and for those of you who know me, you are well aware that (1) I have a freakish obsession with sharks; and (2) I possess a plethora of shark related knowledge that will probably never be of any use to me, unless I end up as a contestant on “Shark Week Jeopardy” (which does not exist-unfortunately)!

Now, growing up I had a wide collection of shark tooth necklaces, bracelets, earrings.. you name it! You know, the ones with the leather rope necklace and African beads, but why as an adult I have failed to own shark tooth accessories is beyond me! That is until NOW!

This week my fancy is being “ATTACKED” by shark tooth accessories! Take a bite out of my top picks below!

Color Happy

What can I say … I’m Color Happy!! I perpetually feel the need to throw in a pop of color. Not that I can’t see myself in a head-to-toe monochromatic look, I’m just saying it rarely happens. Be it by way of jewelry, handbag, shoes or accessories there is always room for color in my world! In today’s featured look I went for all of the above, but balanced things out a bit with a classic black pencil skirt and satchel.  What do you think?

I wish you all a colorful and happy day!  Thank you for stopping by!
