Hey friends! It’s been almost a week since we last met up here and that’s way too long. My website was hacked a few days ago and as DJ Khaled would say,  “They don’t want us to chat,” but it’s now back up and we’re gonna chat!

This ensemble is such a simple and easy look to pull off and I think we should all try it at least once. Years ago, I wouldn’t dare to leave the house dressed in an all white monochromatic look, now that I think back I really don’t know why I wouldn’t because I love the way it looks. So chic, clean, crisp, and of course feminine when a touch of blush is added. I picked up this vest at Zara a few months ago, and wore it here a few weeks ago by pairing it with a floral dress. Can’t decide which way I like it more so let’s get chatty and let me know which looks you are more keen towards. Sound off on the comments below. By the way, want to save some money when purchasing a Daniel Wellington watch than use coupon code “AFANCYAFFAIR” during checkout.

This look is such an easy airy outfit to wear. It’s fun, fresh, playful, feminine and perfect for an afternoon in Miami. I paired it with my structured Gucci bag to tone down the fluffiness of the top and skirt. Perhaps, now for Spring I’ll wear this look with a bag that has a pop of color instead. I wore this little number to a dear friend of mine’s salon grand opening, “Je Suis Spa Hair Salon” in Miami, where lucky for me, my mom (Jussara) and uncle (Pablo) work. Read More…

Hello there!

Did you catch the drift? The off the shoulder trend is what every girl wants to be caught wearing this season. I’m not mad about it and neither should you! This trend is feminine, chic, fun and so flirty, a personal favorite of mine. I love anything that has a bare back and bare shoulders, (remember this post?) so it’s to no surprise that I am all over it. Have you jumped on the bandwagon? Read More…

Last week Michael and I decided to go on an early dinner date (#yass ! We took #FancyP with us) and I decided to tuck away my dreary winter clothes and dig in my closet for something with a more spring vibe. I am desperately dreaming of warmer days and I’m not gonna lie, it was a little too cool for this look, but thankfully we ate inside. With spring only a few days away, (18 days, 4 hours and 21 minutes to be exact from when I wrote this post) I wanted to share 7 easy wardrobe tips on how to transition from winter to spring smoothly and fashionably!

**********

Tip #1

Bring on the bold prints (floral,  graphic blouses).

Tip #2

Ditch the darks for something lighter.

Tip #3

Not ready to completely ditch the dark tones? Fine! Just add in the pantone colors of the year –Rose Quartz (pale pink) and Serenity (baby blue).

Tip #4

Lighter layers! Get rid of the heavy, bulky, thick jackets for something lighter like denim jackets, cardigans…

Tip #5

Amp up your accessories. Reach for this season’s trends like fringe, tassels, flower inspired earrings…

Tip #6

Easiest and most significant tip yet! Freshen up your make up and nails by switching up the darker hues for neon bright hues, nudes, pinks, anything that screams gentle, fun and feminine.

Tip #7

Switch up your bulky bags and purses for clutches and bright carryalls.

**********

 These tips are inexpensive ways to make a statement and be season ready without having to overhaul your entire closet. Hope you find them easy and helpful. Now bring on the warmer days and fun getaways!

Thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes with me! Till next time. Grandma-13 Grandma-14

Hey friends!

This past Friday I hosted an early afternoon lunch at my home for some amazing ladies who also happen to be Miami fashion and lifestyle bloggers! They are legit y’all. The best part about being involved in the fashion and blogging community is being able to connect, meet and work alongside some amazing girls and cultivate great relationships with each one of them. As most of you know, I was so blessed last year with the opportunity to experience and travel to Paris with the Veuve Clicquot team, and as the new Miami brand ambassador I want to reminisce and re-live every second of that trip (see more of my trip to Paris here). So why not have some much needed girl time?  I invited them over for an afternoon of sweet laughter, happiness and joy, with delicious tropical themed food, as we sipped on my favorite drink- Veuve Clicquot Rich and give them a glimpse of what it was like for me to be in Paris.

(See here the last party I hosted at home with Veuve Clicquot Rich)

Oh, how cute and fitting is this door bell, “press for champagne”? I wish this door bell was available everywhere, and of course, serving only the best champagne- Veuve Clicquot Rich with fresh cucumber, pineapple or mint and every other delicious flavor you can add to it. (It was a snapchat hit for all the ladies!). Click here for a quick video on how to make your own #richandfancy drink.

My sweet and dear friend, Florencia Valdes, owner of Something Sweet by Flo, makes the most exquisite cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and every heavenly sent goodness you could think of. She is the best baker in Miami and no design is a challenge for her. When I told her about this party, she was so excited to get baking and I was floored when she delivered the cake and the pineapple and flamingo cookies. She did an outstanding job and let me not even get started with how amazing it all tasted. The cake was coconut with pineapple filling and just incredibly delicious. Seriously! #FoodPorn 🙂 . The final touches, with fresh flowers, dwarf pineapples and a freshly chopped coconut were the perfect cherry on top. So Pinterest worthy baked goods!

By the way, my flower arrangements were a total last minute plan! I started off by removing the inside of the pineapples and added some Grenadin white carnations, then a few daisies and lastly some green fillers to finalize the tropical themed arrangements.

I set up a few bar carts in my apartment with some of my favorite fresh ingredients; cucumber, peppers, and mint. We also wanted to stay within the tropical theme, since Veuve Clicquot Carnaval is coming to Miami next weekend! Tickets are still available (purchase here) for those that want to spend the afternoon celebrating and sipping on the finest champagne! Check out using the “Carnaval50” promo coupon code for 50% off general admission tickets. #cheers #VCCarnaval
Special thanks to all my sweet friends for attending and spending the afternoon with me, and of course, thank you for stopping by and reading this post. Till next time!

BRRRR… Miami hasn’t seen cold days like these in a while and I must admit, I wasn’t expecting it either. It truly caught me by surprise. Its’ way too cold for this tropical gal. I love cold weather, but only when I’m on vacation. It clearly didn’t bother me during my winter wonderland trip, remember that? So when the temps drop, all I want is to get cozy and stay warm. I’m not talking about walking around in PJ’. Thankfully there are many cozy and adorbs sweaters like this one that allow you to stay warm and still look put together. And any excuse to take out my OTK boots. I do love these from DUO,. They are so comfy and feel like you’re wearing socks.

Hi friends!

 Seeing double? No, you’re not! The “IT” suede skirt that has been seen all over the world and on here in the past is back on my blog, with a twist- scalloped trim. I really hate picking up similar pieces, especially in similar color, but look at this one? It’s so pretty, sleek and feminine. A must have, right?! Just say YES so I don’t feel bad about it. The color on this suede beauty is more vibrant too, and so versatile. I literally wear it completely different every time because it’s just that easy to style it. I also wasn’t lying when I told you during my last post (here) I was on a lace-up-top kick lately. I really meant it. The hubby likes it, I like it and so does Penelope, so it’s a win win win to me!

 Happy Monday friends!

I’m going straight into this look. I picked up this cozy cardigan a few days prior to being invited to go to Paris as the new brand ambassador for Veuve Clicquot Rich (remember that? I sure will never forget!). It was one of those purchases that I saw and loved, and thank God I did because it came in so handy during my trip, for the long flight and it’s a great addition to any outfit. I wear this cardigan very often, casually or a bit more dressed up, pretty much with everything and noticed this past week that I have never shared it on here. It’s cozy and the color is so soft and perfect to throw on with any outfit. And you all know how much I love a bareback (seen here and here). Geez, I find it so sexy, yet not too risqué- even though this caged up bodysuit is all party on the back and on the front, I had to have it. I’ve been on a little caged-up-top kick lately and this is one of the many tops I currently own. Do you like this trend? So pushing the envelope already by mixing brown and grey, I opted for a white denim. Yes, we all know its past labor day and blah blah blah, that’s so 2000 late. Forget those rules, I think in cases like this it’s a go!

Thank you again for spending time with me today! Talk to you later this week.

Want to know what I’ve been up to this past weekend? Watch my vlogs on my Youtube channel. I will be posting it weekly along with styling videos as well.

Heyyyy!

Sometime mid last year I humbly won the “Up & Coming Beauty Blo-gger of the Year Award” which I was so excited about. With this big win, I was given the opportunity to do an instagram takeover and spend the day with the Blo Dry Bar followers and we had a great time showing off our beautiful city- Miami. I was beyond excited for this opportunity so thank you all that voted and supported this big W. The pictures came out amazing and so I wanted to share them with you all here! The hairstyle I picked was so versatile, fun and on-trend, which took me from day to night. Today’s post will feature my day look and next week, I’ll share my night outfit. Some of you may have already seen it if you follow the Blo Dry Bar on IG and for those that saw my vlogs during #vlogmas.
