Gigi in the Gables

I love a good blazer, don't you? It's the best way to make anything look instantly chic and polished. Teaming this floral print style (on sale at Zara) with a chambray top and lace shorts was my way of doing casual Friday at the office, but when five o'clock came around I needed to take my look from desk to date night, quick! The solution? A sunny over-sized clutch by the name of Gigi, from Coral Gables favorite Isa Boutique. The sassy leather clutch is big enough to store all my necessities, including iPhone, keys, lip gloss, and wallet, with room to spare. You can find Gigi New York bags exclusively at Isa's, where you can also personalize your bag with metallic monogramming. Who doesn't love a good monogram?! For a limited time, receive complimentary monogramming on purchases over $100. Use code THANKYOU25 at checkout on, or mention the offer when shopping in store or by phone.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, Look #1

After a stormy start, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2014 kicked off last Thursday at the Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach. Opening day's tsunami-like weather left most of South Beach under water, really putting the swim in Swim Week. The dark skies cleared on Friday as I made my way to the Ford Beauty Suite at Soho House for some last minute primping before a night of shows. The lounge was packed with top Ford Artists offering makeup applications, manicures, hair styling and even Fake Bake spray tans. (I purposely wore black knowing that I was going to get sprayed.) I mean, you can't do Swim Week sans a tan. Fake Bake's self-tanning products are great because the solution is water soluble and doesn't stain or streak. As much as I was sweating the rest of the evening I still had an even glow the next day. Love that! The rest of the night included Agua Bendita Swim 2014, a ceviche break, and Cosmo's Summer Splash at the SLS. The MVP of the night? My amazing crown braid courtesy of Priscilla at Blo Midtown. Not only did it keep me cool, but it garnered non-stop compliments. In fact, braids were a big hit on and off the runway.

#EscapeMiami at the Sagamore

Swimsuit: American Apparel | Sunglasses: H&M (old) | Earrings: Forever 21

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim has arrived! These shots are a peek at the first-ever Swim Week street style photo installation debuting this Saturday at the Sagamore Hotel. The series entitled "Summer Crush" features thirty of Miami's hottest fashion bloggers as captured by Mayleen Gonzalez of Photo Boutique. Miami is synonymous with itty bitty bikinis, so a swimsuit was the only thing that came to mind when I was styling my favorite summer look for the shoot. I was so excited to finally get in front of Mayleen's lens - the self proclaimed photog ninja got these amazing shots in about 10 minutes. No joke! The fastest photo shoot of my life! Needless to say, I'm in love with the final product; I always wanted to be a pin-up girl! 

If you were able to RSVP for Escape Miami before the deadline, get ready for a whole lotta fun: spa & beauty treatments, snowcones (yes!), pop-up shops, a DIY jewelry bar, tan touch-ups, swimwear presentation, blogger corner, & more!
