Dressing well has always been a secret weapon of mine. It’s incredible how much of an inner boost a great outfit can provide. The day we took these shots I was feeling super under-the-weather (struggling with a massive cold). When I threw this outfit on, I was instantly confident that, at least, I looked better than I felt and I could ‘fake it ’til I make it’!
Part of my arsenal this day was this bold vintage sweater. It’s no secret that I love vintage clothing. I love the quirky, unique, unexpected touch that vintage can bring to a look. This sweater is a thrifted piece that provides all those elements. Since the sweater is a bit bulky, I paired it with a lighter bottom. I adore these Elie Tahari leather shorts with lace trim and thought they added the perfect soft touch to the bolder top.
Until next time! Stay heathy!

Happy Monday! Hope the week is starting off right for everyone. I’m feeling the typical Monday morning sluggishness. We’ve had a pretty busy last couple of weeks with lots of visitors in town, which we love, but the action is catching up with me! My brother, Donovan Solis, was in town this past weekend from Atlanta. He is a producer for CNN en Espanol, and is extremely talented behind the lens, so you know I had to ask him to take a few shots for the blog! We started off by the bay behind my house then went to Wynwood for the monthly Art Walk. The whole colorful artsy vibe of this ‘hood inspired me to dust off this vintage dress that I hadn’t worn since before my pregnancy! I adore the print and fit of this dress. It has a great wide belt made of the same material as the dress, which gives a great natural looking sexy shape. Being that I have a boxier build this is a huge plus for me! The bold print speaks for itself so I went simple with the accessories just adding my favorite vintage hat and some fabulous Ferragamo heels.
How was everyone’s weekend?
