Just posted this super comfy cute vintage cardigan and wanted to post some street style pictures I’ve come across of great ways to wear this classic. As you can see, the options are endless! From layering it over sundresses, skirts and blouses, even layered over other sweater and the list goes on! Has me itching for the cool Fall breezes ahead!

I have a confession. I have come to the realization that I look forward to and enjoy the street style pics more than the Fashion Week shows. I love the fearlessness of some of these avant-gard fashionistas and always get inspired to make a trip to my closet to play around and conjure up new, fresh looks. Here are some of my favorite street style shots so far this NYFW to get you inspired to go out on a limb, push the limits! That’s what makes Fashion so much fun!
I went to Boston for a weekend trip and wore these great Pinkerton silk pants on the flight there. These pajama pants are perfectly comfy for travel. It was as hot and steamy in Boston as it is here in Miami so I was grateful for the super light material since we went straight on a mini tour of the downtown area after arriving. Pre-pregnancy, I preferred to wear them with a cropped flowy top for a lighter, airier look, but my options are a little more limited nowadays. Silky pajama pants have been heavy on the street style circuit, check out other cool ways to style them below. I love when clothes are just as comfy as they are fun to wear!

Summer in Miami can be steamy hot to say the least. I’m always on the lookout for the lightest, smallest summer dresses that still look classy and that can be a lot to ask for. What makes this task even MORE challenging is my belly bump which seems to be growing a mile a minute these days. Having a newfound round Winnie-the-Pooh shape, I find that I really want to show off my legs to balance out my roundness and make me feel feminine! This dress is one I recently found at TJ Maxx for just $40 (on clearance, of course!) and it more than fits all my requirements. I absolutely love it. I paired it with my-oh-so-loved YSL Platforms (purchased at the yearly designer shoe sale at Off Saks a few months back), and my new love-of-my-life hand-stitched Fendi purse (purchased at the ONLY place I buy designer handbags- Consignment Bar). There is something about walking out of my house in an outfit I love that makes me feel like I can take on the world!

One of the many reasons why I love Miami is that there is always something going on. MAC had an “insiders” party that I attended last minute with some friends a few days ago. It was at the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar in Design District and was such a cool laid back event. I was on visual stimulation overload (in a good way) and could barely focus on one thing. There were human statues and living art exhibits everywhere surrounded by this beautiful mural-covered courtyard. I love this kind of crap!!
PS: How much fun are my 80′s inspired striped jeans from H&M?!
HAPPY FRIDAY AND HAPPY HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND!
The weather in Miami continues to be a little too warm for fall clothes and a little too cool for summer dresses. I’ve had this little summer dress and found a perfect way to make it work for this in between seasons weather by layering with a sheer vintage short sleeve shirt. I tied the shirt in the back to keep the waist accentuated and ta da! A new outfit is born! Keeping your look updated is all about reworking what’s already in your closet! Happy Friday!

I’ll be 29 on Tuesday and for some reason that age was feeling pretty daunting. On top of that I have recently come to the realization that my highlight of the week went from being Friday’s cocktail hour to Sunday brunch. When did that happen? Either way, I’m getting old and I’m proud! Who wants to be young and clueless forever anyway!? We went to Sra Martinez for brunch and I was happy that it finally got chilly enough to wear this beautiful vintage coat/sweater that I purchased months ago. I absolutely adore the vibrant red and purple color combination. Another perfect Sunday brunch followed by a Sunday stroll in my vintage coat and in all my Grown Woman glory!
PS: Stay tuned for some beautiful Despy vintage jackets and outerwear soon to be posted for sale!
Mr Christian Louboutin himself had quite the soiree last night at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Miami’s Bal Harbour Shops. The event was a celebration and shoe signing of his new “Capsule Collection” made especially for his 20 year anniversary in the biz. I loved how they incorporated a Miami touch to the event with complimentary Mojitos, Cuban sandwiches, Ceviche bites and live Latin music. We got a sneak peek at the ‘Capsule Collection’ (available to all in March) which included signature shoes as well as handbags – in the shape of an actual capsule. It goes without saying that they were all stunning. My favorite shoes were the ones pictures below with the invisible straps and little dainty bows. It is his ingenuity that makes this man a fashion genius!

I recently bought this Gypsy 05 jumper and wore if for the first time a couple of days ago. The jumper is so light and silky that I almost felt wrong for being too comfortable in public. Being someone that usually places comfort last in matters of fashion, this made me think that I may just have to re-asses my fashion priorities… maybe.
I have a job that requires me to dress down all week so my absolute favorite part of the weekend is dressing up!
