Soooo Miami

If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught on to the little love affair I’ve been having with flamingos!

There’s a certain nostalgia about flamingos that just tickles me pink! Flamingos bring back childhood memories of family trips to the Miami Metro Zoo, where upon entry patrons were greeted by flushing flocks of flamingos! I remember my fascination with the different shades of pinks and corals radiating from their feathers, as well as my admiration of their flirty, one legged stance.

I also love that flamingos are just soooooo Miami! I dare you to find a postcard from Miami that doesn’t have a flamingo somewhere on it. So whether it be thoughts of my childhood or thoughts of my hometown, flamingos have the power to make me feel some type of way.  So why not wear them emblazoned on my blouse, T-shirt, handbag and necklace?

Work Style Wednesday: Spring Casual

Today’s look is a bit more casual than what you guys are used to seeing from me, but by all means, still very work appropriate.  Having to bear with a strict “no jeans” policy at work can have a girl scrambling to find a stylish alternative to the oh-so versatile blue jean on a Friday morning.  And since scrambling and fussy clothing are no way to start your Friday morning, the fashion gods created khakis!

Equally as comfy and versatile as jeans, you can pair your khakis with virtually any solid or printed top in your wardrobe. I wore my khakis with this perfectly floral top and accessorized with my favorite springtime handbag by Vince Camuto, andcurrent shoe obsession, my YSL Tribute’s; both of which you’ve seen before recently and will likely see a lot more of this spring!

What’s your casual style?

Work Style Wednesday: Muumuu(ish)

If I had to pick one dress to wear for the rest of my life, it would be this H&M Hi-Low A-Line dress right here. The only thing that disappoints me about this dress is that it was not manufactured in every single color and print known to man.

Sure, its shape could be compared to that of the Muumuu, but its fun and airy vibe is simply perfect for spring! Besides, don’t be so closed-minded, this muumuu er dress (and this one too) can bring sexy back real quick, simply by adding a chunky belt creating a more cinched, flirty look.  I paired my fun and flowy muumuu with my new obsessions, my Yves Saint Laurent Tribute T-Strap Sandals; a hard earned gift to myself for kicking ass at work.

Speaking of work!! It’s Work Style Wednesday and I can’t wait for my dose of work style inspiration!
