Spotted in the Gables

Last week I teamed up with Miami photog Danny Delgado to shoot a special project at Coral Gables boutique My Bestfriend's Closet. Owner Patty Flores designed the store to look like the walk-in closet of my dreams, (and probably yours, too!) and I got to ham it up among the racks of beautiful fashions a la Confessions of a Shopaholic. Post shoot, Danny & I took a stroll down the Mile to capture a new favorite outfit. While Miami weather would lead you to believe otherwise, fall has arrived and I'm pretty excited to start wearing more leather & printed tights. Now all I need is a cool breeze!

Best thing about this outfit? Head-to-toe under $100.

The first awards show of the 2012 season is in the books! Trends of the evening included yellow, shades of blue, tulle, and.... boobs. By the number of bright hues and even floral prints that appeared on the carpet, it seems that the ladies of Hollywood just don't want to let summer go. I have a few favorites (hello, Sofia!) but you'll have to tune in to CBS Miami on Monday at 5PM EST to hear my picks! In the meantime, search twitter for #KellysRedCarpet to read my thoughts from the red carpet telecast. Update: Watch the segment below!

Fall Into Floral

While today officially marks the last day of summer, it doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to your favorite summer trends. Floral prints have popped up everywhere from blazers to skinny pants (like these super affordable ones from Prim&Proper,) and can easily transition into fall by pairing with dark hues & rich textures. I took this look from summer to fall by swapping my white and cream accessories for dark denim and brown leather, topped off with a burgundy felt hat. 

Do you dare to wear flowers this fall? Let me know in the comments.

Breaking Fashion Rules is All-White

If you're still abiding by the antiquated "fashion rule" of not wearing white after Labor Day, my guess is you're the kind of person that also thinks you should wait 30 minutes before swimming after you eat. Kidding! (Not really.) In fashion there is only one rule - have fun! Nothing is more chic than a head-to-toe white look, and it is possible to pull off during the fall and winter months. 

How to Wear White After Labor Day
The key? Warming up your makeup palette. A burgundy or wine colored lip is a big trend this season and can be worn day or night - if done right. I like Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge #9, it stays on all day and won't leave your lips crusty like other long-wear lipsticks. With a bold lip, the rest of your makeup should be very minimal to avoid looking like a vamp. Start off with clean skin. I'm loving the new Pore Refining Solutions Makeup by Clinique ($26). I received a sample before it hit stores this month and now use it daily. The "Instant Perfecting" foundation is oil-free and virtually erases your pores, leaving your skin with a satiny finish. Next, apply a plum or soft pink blush to the apples of your cheeks for a pretty flush, and slick your hair back into a pony or topknot. Finally, toss on your white ensemble and shun anyone who dares scold you for breaking the no white after Labor Day rule; they are clearly so last decade.
