Weekend Bumpin’

While I still haven’t entirely renounced my beloved collection of stilettos, these days in my fifth month of pregnancy when my balance and equilibrium are a bit off (a common side effect of adjusting to a growing mid-section) you will most likely catch me reaching for midi-heels, kitten heels or chunky block heels during the work week.  But on weekends, sneakers are my saving grace!

Now, opting for sneakers doesn’t mean you’re confined to athletic wear or T-shirts and jeans (not that there is anything wrong with that). The feminine/masculine mishmash of sneakers with dresses/skirts has been a hot trend on the runways for quite some time and according to Glamour Magazine, sneakers are once again one of the hottest shoe trends for Spring 2016!

I personally love J.Crew’s selection of sneakers perfect for combining with dresses and skirts. The key to pulling off sneakers with dresses and skirts is PROPORTION. Never wear high tops with a knee length skirt.  Such combination will visually cut off your legs making you look short and stout– something to avoid at all costs, especially while baby bumpin’. Sneakers that are cut below the ankle such as Keds, Converse or the New Balance’s you see me wearing below will elongate your legs, making the proportion of your comfy yet stylish  outfit look much better!

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend so far and thanks for stopping by Sun Fun Fashion!

What I Wore: Weekend Fashion Wrap

Hey guys! I’m a day late on my Weekend Fashion Wrap, but hey better late than never right!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I had a wonderful weekend celebrating Halloween, as well as spending time with my family on Saturday for my niece and nephew’s birthdays. Here’s a look at my 2013 Halloween costume and what I wore for the casual birthday celebration!

The inspiration for my 2013 Halloween costume came from my Black Milk Clothing – Shark v. Mermaid Swimsuit.  I originally borrowed the shark suit from a co-worker with the intention of simply going as a shark attack victim, but where’s the fun and creativity in that? The Little Mermaid and JAWS are two of my all time favorite movies and this costume is the harrowing marriage of the two.  I have to admit, I may have traumatized a few children this Halloween, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it!

Wild Wild West

Hey everyone!  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!  I am so way behind on my blogging I feel like I am going to explode from the overload of posts I have planned for the near future!  As you all know I was recently in California on vacation and saying that I fell in love with the Golden State is an understatement-(blog post coming soon).

What I find most rewarding about traveling is the learning, influence and enrichment of different cultures and styles.  California is abundant with a variety of different races, cultures and customs, but when I think of California (not sure why) the first thing that always comes to mind is the Wild, Wild, West.  With this theme in mind, my outfit choices for California were pretty heavy on western influenced trends such as tribal prints, suede, denim and fringe…..lots of fringe!  Fringe is my new black, I am obsessed!

I wore this outfit in California but didn’t take the time to memorialize it with pictures (I must have been having too much fun) so I decided to wear it again this past Saturday in Miami for a little shopping in Midtown and a birthday celebration! More looks from my trip to California coming soon. What do you think of this one?
