Hello friends!

High Rise flared denim, block heels, and fringe equals 3 trends in one. Yes! You heard that right. It can be a bit intimidating to play with so many trends in one outfit and goes against many people’s rule book, but my personal opinion is that sometimes rules are meant to be broken. Because it just may work- case in point!

I blame it on the 70’s trend that has me all over it like Nutella on a spoon. What hooked me is the high rise flare jeans (my daily go-to) and block heel- the “IT” Fall and Winter bootie. The high rise flare, I feel like is so flattering to my body type and shape and I’ve seen working well for others with different body types than mine. So before you ditch this trend take my word for it, hop on over to the mall and try it on. You may love it and want to get it in every wash, seriously. Another obsession of mine has been the sleeveless turtleneck tops. For those that don’t know, I work at Baptist Hospital as an Event Planner so dressing business casual and not losing the trendy vibes is my daily forte. I’m sure you’re all sick of seeing me on my social media platforms wearing the turtleneck sleeveless red top (also seen here), and thanks to Ellen TracyI found the perfect dressy and more sophisticated version. My favorite part about this top is the pleat on the side of the collar, its so chic adding a feminine touch to it. It is absolutely gorgeous!

Here’s a few helpful fancy tips while shopping for these trends;

  • When picking out the perfect block heel- make sure that they are sturdy, chunky and not clunky with a streamline upper. These pair from Ellen Tracy are the perfect option, because it fits right into those descriptions and are soooo comfortable. These “IT” booties are definitely made for walking!!
  • High rise flattering flare denim are so versatile- They work great when paired with a button down top, solid top and cardigans, ponchos, a flowy vest and my newest favorite way with the ongoing trend of crop tops. Since flared jeans aren’t tight, fitted tops are usually a great way to balance out your outfit but loose tops work too.
  • Fringe has been having its moment for a few seasons now. I first introduced this trend to my wardrobe back in March (seen here) and slowly have been adding it to all my looks (most recently seen here). I love that it adds such a fun and flirty dimension to your look when walking and moving right along. This trend is not just for the festival season and can be subtly added to all your looks with either accessorizing it or by paring it with your favorite fringe-y heels or suede jacket with fringe-y arms.

Are you digging any of these trends? If so, share below!

Hello!

Last weekend, I spent my Saturday hanging out at the Koko & Palenki Aventura store with Adriana, the Alepel brand shoe designer. What a nice, humble, BEAUTIFUL  and sweet soul she is, who is expecting her first born in less than 2 months. She looks amazing, right? The trunk show was a preview of her 2nd collection for this fall and winter. Adriana is an architect and has curated a very detailed and gorgeous shoe collection with your foot in mind. Her trademark and special personal touch is the line that follows from the back of the heels to the tip of the sole. This rubber line will never fade and you will always spot the line along the way.

No matter where they take you, or where you go,  that line is set to stay. I must say that I really dig it! These are my favorites from the new collection.

Alepel’s entire line is available at all three Koko & Palenki locations (Aventura Mall, Dadeland Mall and Village of Merrick Park) and on their website. Make sure to stop by and try them on during your next visit to the mall. Once you try them on I highly doubt that you will leave the store without them. You’ve been warned. They are trendy, great quality, extremely comfortable and have I said trendy?! They are all designed with an architect’s point of view, with very sharp and clean lines to exude a woman’s sex appeal. And who doesn’t want to look sexy from head to toe!?

Thanks for stopping by and till next time!

There’s nothing more I love, than a casual fall look! Tis the season for layering up, bundling up, and being comfy. After such a great summer we’ve had, a lil cold weather never hurt nobody. The temperature dropped and the bundling up was the “IT” thing to do this past weekend in Miami. Now tell me, what’s your favorite thing about fall?

Hope you all had a wonderful and safe weekend!

Hello friends!

As the weather starts to cool off in Miami (which we all know this transition won’t take place till later this year), we could slowly start to transition our wardrobes into fall by adding the more obvi pieces like a jacket,  coat {more like a thick cardigan for us}, a scarf, coated denim and booties.  Or if you are simply not ready to do so, just add a darker pout, or start introducing fall colors like I did with this dark bloom dress {which is now on sale!}

Thank you for stoping by and happy first week of fall!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Oi amigos!

À medida que o tempo começa a esfriar em Miami (que todos nós conhecemos essa transição não ocorrerá até o final deste ano), nós podemos começar a transição nossos guarda-roupas em queda lentamente adicionando a mais óbvia
peças uma jaqueta, casaco {mais como um cardigan grosso para nós}, um cachecol, jeans e botas. Ou se você simplesmente não estão dispostos a fazê-lo, basta adicionar um baton mais oscuro ou começar a integrar e introduzir as cores do outono como eu fiz com este vestido de flor escuro {que já está à venda!}.

Obrigado por nos visitar e feliz primeira semana de Outono!
