Weekend Vibes

Here’s another weekend casual look perfect for weekend wandering and running errands in style.  I got this Adidas x TOPSHOP jacket last year from TOPSHOP at The Grove Shopping Center in Los Angeles and have only worn it for traveling due to Miami’s eternal summer climate.

The athletic inspired trend was huge in 2014 and has carried over to 2015 due to popular demand.  Those of you who know me know that I have never been one for athletic wear, but when athletic wear brands (such as Adidas) collaborate with fashion forward retailers (such as TOPSHOP) the outcome of fashionable comfort is simply irresistible.

I hope you all have a fun filled weekend! Thank you for visiting me and don’t forget to stay tuned next Wednesday for my new Wednesday feature in collaboration with Nathalie of EarnestyleWork Style Wednesday!

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!

Wednesday Fancy- Palm Tree Print

 

Sky and Calyann’s New Beginning

So if you’ve stopped by lately then you already know that Mondays are normally dedicated to What I Wore: Weekend Fashion Wrap. However, although I fully intend on sharing what I wore with you, today’s post is dedicated to an event I attended this past Saturday which merits it own blog post!

It was an evening full of surprises at Sky Watson and Calyann Barnett’s baby shower! It all began upon arrival at the unique and romantic photo studio/ event space located in Little Haiti. As you approach the entrance, you think you’re walking into your typical empty warehouse turned venue with four walls and a dance floor. Needless to say, this was not the case. Upon entry guests were directed to the outdoor area of the studio where tables covered with beautiful satin, cream-colored linens were set over a beach sand floor, yes sand. Surprise number one, you have been transported to a sandy beach in the Caribbean.

The guest tables were surrounded by elegant gold, silver and clear Lucite chairs and topped with individually unique centerpieces made with an array of romantic candles, white hydrangeas and crystal trees with hanging bubble terrariums. There were two gazebos beautifully draped in white flowing fabric and crystal chandeliers, one where the jaw-dropping six layer cake (plus 5 mini cakes and dessert shooters) were placed and the other hosting the main table where the fab soon- to- be parents were seated. Dinner was a delicious buffet of Caribbean fare including various curried meats, Jamaican rice, roti and macaroni pie just to name a few dishes. There was a DJ and photo booth fully stocked with a variety of props, including Calyann’s favorite – elaborate headpieces.

Surprise number two was unveiled after dinner underneath a beautiful banyan tree, perfectly lit and dripping with strands of crystals where Sky and Calyann proceeded to perform their commitment ceremony. Witnessing the exchange of commitments and union of two (soon to be three) people who genuinely love, enjoy and inspire each other is such a fulfilling and magical experience. I was honored to be a part of it.

The final surprise of the night came at the time of the cake cutting as Sky and Calyann cut into the monumental cake to reveal the BLUE colored inside-indicating that a baby Prince (pun intended) is on his way!! Sky and Calyann have decided to name their little bundle of joy Prince (love it) and considering Calyann’s position as one of the top fashion stylists in the world right now, I put money on Prince being the best-dressed little man on this planet. Watch out Alonso Mateo!! Lol!

Thank you Sky and Calyann for putting together such a beautiful and emotional celebration, it was such an honor to celebrate with you and your families. Can’t wait to meet the little Prince!

Fancy Wednesday

Is it Fancy Wednesday already?? Boy, how time flies when you’re having fun!

For today’s Fancy Wednesday I’d like to share my top 10 picks from www.TOPSHOP.com.  If you don’t already know, TOPSHOP is a British clothing company carrying everything from clothes and shoes to makeup and accessories.  Unfortunately, Topshop has not yet fully expanded to Miami, Florida in the form of an official flagship store, but limited inventory can be found at Topshop’s Pop Up store at Nordstrom located at Dadeland Mall.

Fortunately, Topshop maintains a very well developed and easy to browse website where fashionistas of the female AND male variety (yes, there is TOPMAN- for men) can shop to their hearts desire and stock up on the latest fashion trends from the UK.  Below are the 10 items currently “tickling my fancy’ available on www.TOPSHOP.com !

Happy Shopping and Happy Humpday! Thanks for stopping by!
