April Showers + 3 Indoor Miami Events

The weatherman warned this week would be ugly, but I didn't care and went to the beach anyway. Luckily I had my Hayden Reis Evil Eye Tote & Melissa Jelly Sandals in tow, both waterproof. Take that mother nature!

The beach is clearly not the place to be this week. (Umm, flood warning?) So here are three great things to do inside, where your hair won't frizz and your shoes won't get soggy.

3 (Indoor) Things To Do This Week

Shop Blush Boutique Online

Want to avoid the rain all together? Stay in! Nothing better than a little online retail therapy. South Florida favorite Blush Boutique just launched their e-commerce site and is offering 15% your first purchase when you sign up. I was recently at the SoMi store and picked up a chic linen short suit that I can't wait to wear in Cali next week. www.shopblush.com 


Beauty Must-Haves

Found in my bathroom: Tea Tree Oil, Bobbi Brown Extra Bright Serum, Benefit They're Real Mascara, Clinique CC Cream

When it comes to my beauty regimen, skincare is my top priority. I'm always on the hunt for the latest and greatest to keep my baby face looking just that, youthful. (Aren't we all?) Your skincare and makeup routine should change seasonally, and moving from spring into summer it's time to focus on less is more - less makeup, more skin, that is. Here are a few new products that I am completely obsessed with right now.

Flowers in my hair, don't care! Sundays are for brunching, and that calls for a chic little dress. Chic, but effortless - no one wants to fuss over anything but mimosas on a Sunday, right? A bright little lace frock (like this one from Hoss' spring collection) will amp your ladylike factor, keeping anyone from noticing when you take one too many trips to the dessert station. Cheers to that!

P.S. Brides-to-be: this dress also comes in cream and is absolutely perfect for a rehearsal dinner. If I was getting hitched it'd be my pick!

#Wear2Where Derby Fashion

Last year I attended my first Derby at Gulfstream Park and couldn't believe how fun, and fashion-forward, the experience was!  I mean, what other sporting event practically requires you to look Stepford Wives fabulous? If you've never been to a race at Gulfstream, you need to gather your friends, some betting cash, and your most fabulous hat and make an afternoon of it. Better yet - let them treat you! Join me on Saturday for a Derby Fashion presentation at Bloomingdale's Aventura where you can enter to win "A Day at the Races" complete with lunch, VIP seating, and a race named in your honor. Pass the mint juleps!

Spring Trends at Bloomingdale's Aventura

Early riser? Start your day with a dose of spring fashion tomorrow morning on Miami's Local 10. I'm dishing on the season's hottest trends at Bloomies Aventura with my girl MJ Acosta in her new segment MJ in the Morning. I had so much fun dressing my barbies models, Priscilla and Kristina, in monochromatic dresses, denim, sparkle, and something I like to call sporty spice

Priscilla wears Current & Elliot Chambray Top & Seven Bootcut Jeans. 
My dress by Karen Millen (borrowed), Sandals by C Label (Only $20!)
Kristina wears French Connection Embellished Jacket & True Religion Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans.

UPDATE: This segment was originally scheduled to air on Tuesday, April 16th, but was postponed in light of the Boston Marathon terror attack. While fashion is an expressive art form that brings us joy and inspiration, I stand with the rest of the country in honoring the victims and heroes of yesterday's senseless act. May prayers, love, and light spread throughout Boston and lead us to a brighter tomorrow. x Kelly


Lost on Lincoln

A while back I had photographer Emma del Rey join me on Lincoln Road to capture these images... somehow I lost track of them in the ensuing months. I was reminded of them last week when I visited the stretch of shops and restaurants twice; once for shopping (duh), and again on Friday night when I took Eric to a preview of Michael Bay's new action flick Pain & Gain. We're hardly into spring and Miami is already starting to reach it's boiling point, making leisurely strolls like this, well, sweaty. The solution? Breezy & backless, baby.

My beauty mantra? You can't go wrong with big hair & bold lips.

3 Ways to Wear Black & White


It's THE trend of the season, and unless you've been hiding under a rock, you probably knew that already. Back in December, I told  Aventura Magazine, "You only need two colors in your closet next season—black and white" Just call me Walter Mercado. (If you're not Latin, you'll have to Google that. I typically don't go crazy on trends, but this monochromatic phenomenon is far more. Black & white is tres chic, classic, and oh so easy to wear! Feel free to spice it up with a punch of color on your lips and nails, or with a bold handbag. I'm seriously crushing on Hoss Intropia these days (last seen here on NYE, and more to come.) The Spanish line's spring collection is chock full of feminine, flirty pieces that make you feel casually glamorous. This polka dot dress is flattering on any woman, and just plain fun. You can find Hoss Intropia exclusively at Bloomingdale's Aventura & Miami stores.

P.S. You're getting a sneak peek at my new digs! Since moving in December it feels like I've birthed a child... I'll get around to posting the extreme home makeover eventually.
