It’s been a whirlwind holiday season, and living in a place like Miami it’s sometimes easy to forget the month, the season… and so on. We’ve had a few chilly days (I use that word very lightly), and everyone seemed to take advantage of the cooler temps. Of course, I was one of those people. And while yes, it might seem silly to wear a beanie in the low 70s, or OTK boots when it’s practically beach weather, sometimes Miami people want to wear winter clothes too.

navy snakeskin

I’m not a huge fan of reptiles, but give me a navy and neon silk snake print top and I’ll wear it with excitement. I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately, so I figured the time was right to shake things up a little and rock a little navy. With black accessories. Lol. This top was an amazing score, so amazing in fact, that it sold out. In fact, the light silk and the sheer sleeves make it kind of the ideal work wardrobe blouse, because it’s breezy enough to be outdoors but also offers coverage to keep it professional. Thankfully, there are very similar styles still in stock (but going fast) like this sweater and this blouse. Paired with an easy scuba skater skirt, sandals, and my trusty staple accessories, I feel like I am finding my own style within a corporate culture. Thank the Lord I don’t have to wear pantsuits or other frumpy stuff! This was one of my last warm looks before this cold front swept in and required me to start wearing pants. Come back, sun!

It’s been a whirlwind since we’ve moved, and despite all of the amazing inspiration on every corner for shooting it gets a little tricky to set aside the time to take blog photos. Thankfully, my photog cruised down here yesterday and we were able to have a slightly productive photo session in between cocktails. These shorts were a recent purchase and I have to say, I’ve gotten a fair amount of wear from them in the last few weeks, and my last post shared my love for these Saint Lauren sunglasses. But the real superstar of this look is my fabuloso birthday present… the Prada bag my husband gave me! I was totally not expecting it, but I am so happy and grateful for it! For pics from my birthday and also daily looks between blog posts, be sure to check out my Instagram.

sunny days

Is it just me, or does it feel like the weekend is already here? Maybe it’s the fact that this is my birthday week, but I am all smiles. We got a ‘cold front’ here in Miami and basically it means you can walk a few blocks (rather than a fraction of one) before you start to overheat. I think the low is about 70, which is exactly the type of weather I want so I am totally okay with this shift! Speaking of shifts, this dress is by far one of my most favorite purchases lately. I already posted it on Instagram a few weeks back, but I feel like it deserved a little more love. It was an amazing steal, and I am always open to adding more black and white (and designer) to my wardrobe.

I also have to give some maaaajor love to my new designer sunglasses. Ever since receiving them, they have been on my face! I love the classic style, plus black sunglasses are so chic–especially when they are Saint Laurent. In Miami Beach, a great pair of sunglasses are essential–and cheap-o glasses simply won’t suffice. I personally love glasses from Smart Buy Glasses because they ship quick and they have an amazing designer selection.

So… here’s to the ALMOST weekend, and happy early birthday to MOI!
