Blush, Grey and Leopard

I simply cannot get enough of “Blush” these days and one of my favorite ways to pair this soft, neutral hue is by pairing it with my all-time favorite neutral, LEOPARD!  Yes, leopard is a neutral and if we can’t see eye to eye on that, then we may need to reevaluate this whole relationship.  :)

This A/X leopard print skirt pairs beautifully with shades of blush due to its perfect palette of leopard and grey- which happens to be my second favorite neutral to pair blush with.  Any shade of camel, tan or nude would come in third! I glammed up the look by adding gold details from neck to toe!

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!

Work Style Wednesday: The Trouser

First of all let me just say that I am ecstatic to be a part of this fun and associative project alongside Nathalie of Earnestyle Blog!

As a part time blogger with a full time career outside of fashion, “work wear” pretty much governs the majority of my Monday – Friday style choices. I like to describe my personal work style as professional, yet playful.  While always keeping in mind my office dress code, I can’t ever resist adding a bit of color and flare to professional and structured pieces.

Today’s Work Style Wednesday look is the perfect example of how to add a little feminine flare to a work wear staple, the trouser.  Man or woman, the trouser is at the top of every working professional’s list of “must haves”.  And because trousers are so unisex, what better way of claiming a feminine stake on trousers than by adding a little bit (or a lot) of sparkle!

I absolutely love the fit of these Michael Kors Jogger Trousers, even though after breaking them in a bit I realized that they are a tad big on me.  Nothing a bit of tailoring can’t fix! Tailoring is a very important part of work style, it’s the difference between slouchy and polished.  Fortunately, my tailor is conveniently located directly across the street from my office!

I hope you all enjoyed my first Work Style Wednesday post and don’t forget to take advantage of the work style inspiration provided by Nathalie of Earnestyle and every other fashion blogger babe that joined our Work Style Wednesday Fashion Blogger Link up!

Stop and Smell the Roses

One of my absolute favorite past times is wandering, aimlessly, strategically, locally or internationally.  There’s just so much to see and learn when you take a step back, stop and smell the roses.  My boyfriend Daniel and I have been doing a whole lot of wandering lately. While I snap away at pretty much anything in sight using my new camera (a Christmas gift from Daniel), Daniel is busy finding landmarks and hacking portals via Ingress– “an augmented reality massive multiplayer online role playing GPS-dependent game created by Niantic Labs, a startup within Google”.  Sounds like a major geek fest, but its actually a pretty cool game, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Last weekend we took the Metro Mover to its final destination at the School Board Station and wandered off into Wynwood to check out all the incredible murals left behind by artists from all around the world during this year’s Art Basel.  We came across this lovely rosette mural and I couldn’t help but use it as the backdrop for my OOTD.  Not only does it fit my all around feminine and colorful style, but how great did it match my look that day?!

If you have some leisure time go out and get lost in your own city.  Go for a long walk or bike ride, you’ll be amazed at how many new things you’ll discover when you’re not trapped inside a car.

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all an adventurous and inspirational Sunday Funday!

On the Grid

Are you guys as excited about the long weekend as I am? Jumping right back into my routine after a sleepless, eco-adventure vacation has me running on fumes.  Nothing like a 4 day weekend to get me back on the grid and back on the grind!

Speaking of being on the grid, I am sure you guys have seen this grid print on my skirt everywhere this season! I love this black and white grid print because it is very versatile, you can literally wear it with just about any color.  I also love this print because it is an chic and modern take on plaid.  Everyone is mad for plaid this season, but I for one loathe plaid.  That’s right, I said it, I loathe plaid.  I just can’t. I don’t hate it on other people, but I personally refuse to wear it.  Therefore, grid print is an acceptable substitute in my book.

I wish you all a wonderful long weekend and a blessed Thanksgiving!

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!

Good morning and Happy Veterans Day!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  No matter what you are doing today, working, BBQing, boating, whatever. Don’t forget to take a moment to reflect on the meaning and importance of this holiday.  Freedom and liberty are not free.  Our rights and liberties have been and continue to be paid for by the blood, sweat and tears of the selfless and brave men and women that serve this great country. Today I am grateful to the heroes of our nation who sacrifice their lives and time away from loved ones so that we may live in the land of the free.  THANK YOU!

Now, here’s a quick look at What I Wore this weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Mixin’ Vixen

Hey lovelies! So if you can recall from my Valentines Day post, I am simply wild about mixing prints.  Some say mixing prints can look tacky or overwhelming, but when done right, mixing your favorite prints will have you skipping and singing to The Sound of Music’s “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things…” Trust me, that is exactly the way I felt yesterday as I walked out of my apartment wearing this gorgeous, floral “DVFurstenberg-esque” print skirt from Forever 21 and ruffle polka-dotted blouse from The Limited .  Flowers and polka-dots? Come on, how can you not LOVE this look? Another mix I am completely obsessed with right now is floral and leopard print.  Think Lisa Frank meets Victoria Beckham…. Stay tuned. See my do’s and dont’s on mixing prints here.

Happy Humpday Lovers!
