I’m all smiles on today’s post because this past weekend was a wet one, but the rain did bring in a bit of a cooler breeze on Sunday and I enjoyed every second of it. The cooler temps in Miami are few and far between, so we appreciate mother nature for being kind to us and allowing us to enjoy what’s considered “fall” to many. This vampy tone little dress came out to play and it’s so perfect for this time of year, especially for the ladies (me!) that are skipping on self tanning and rocking the lighter skin look. I feel so pale lately, but this burgundy “ox blood” hue adds the perfect contrast. How adorable is this Boohoo suede shift dress? I love the way it fits and its 60’s – 70’s vibe. What’s even cuter is the price. It’s only $35… So inexpensive and perfect for Thanksgiving, maybe?!
And the collaboration with Tory Burch continues. I had so much fun pulling looks from the Tory Burch Worth Avenue store, and was in heaven styling them. The staff at this boutique is extremely nice, courteous, knowledgeable and so trend oriented. As I mentioned on my last Tory Burch collaboration post (here), I wanted to style everything in sight, but we all know that’s nearly impossible. Oh dresses, how I love them; you all know that. It’s a total agape love, a forever thing. My favorite part about styling a dress is its versatility, highlighting your feminine side, while accentuating your natural curves. Although I die for trendy pieces, I’m also all about flexibility and non-fussy pieces that can easily become staple pieces in your closet. This pleated silk shirtdress can go from day to night, from a casual outing to a more intricate look. It can take you from office, straight into happy hour by switching up your pairings, like adding accessories and/or changing up your shoe game. We live such hectic lives and having more staple and versatile pieces is the name of my closet game. In the past year, I really started to look into quality versus quantity and it’s truly all thanks to the condo life. I have such a love hate relationship with it. Space is limited and I totally ran out of space to hide things, so every time I bring something in, I donate something else. I say it’s a love hate relationship because it helps you live a more simple, de-cluttered life, but also teaches you to shop smarter. I’m always living in the spring cleaning mode and the hubby is not a fan. I even throw away Fancy P’s toys.
