Every season, I’m tempted to buy new clothing to stay up to date with the trends and to refresh my wardrobe. Since splurging on clothing isn’t exactly what’s best for my piggy bank, I tend to invest in key pieces that can seamlessly blend into my wardrobe. That way the less expensive pieces (like jeans from H&M or a top from Forever 21) look more expensive.
What you wear on the weekend should be built around comfort and ease, with lightweight fabrics and chic silhouettes that allow you to move freely, go to the beach or grab lunch with friends.

Floral dresses are a staple every fashionista needs in their wardrobe this spring. This one, by American Eagle, feels fresh and girly, and swishes gently as you walk… or dance!

I went from pursuing a career in ballet to working for a PR firm in matter of three years.
Dance was a way for me to express myself through movement. It was extremely demanding on my body, and forced me to stay physically fit at all times. Often times requiring me to cross train by swimming, practicing Pilates or doing yoga on a regular basis. To land a job in a ballet company was (and still is) very hard and extremely competitive. So when I lost my job dancing for a small ballet company here in West Palm Beach, I had to make a tough decision and reconsider career paths. That’s when I decided to go back to school and eventually, work my way into a local PR firm.
Looking for a dress that drapes beautifully down your body? One that gently poufs out beneath you when you dance’? Glides down your curves… (or in my case, adds them)? It’s all in the fabric.
Keepin’ it retro… and a little sassy for today’s post! Black, white and red for a simple and straightforward outfit for spring that could take you from work to happy hour to date night with the help of a blazer and carryall, red lipstick, clutch and pair of killer heels.
I recently read somewhere that a smart wardrobe is rooted in the classics, with clothing you can wear again and again, and that have the ability to make you feel and look good, despite changing your style. Today’s outfit, inspired by spring (and the rising temps here in Florida), is exactly that – unmistakably classic, yet modern, current and fresh at the same time.

With spring right around the corner and temps quickly rising here in Florida, now is the perfect time to assess what you need in your wardrobe for springtime. You can finally (unless you’re up north – sorry guys!) start shedding those chunky sweaters, blanket scarves, closed toe booties – store them away until next winter – and replace them with cute sundresses, printed blouses, lightweight t-shirts, white jeans and flirty midi-skirts. Much like a big event in my life, I tend to prepare in advance what I’ll be wearing. So this being said, I decided to kick start to my spring shopping a little early this year so you can see what I plan to wear!
Being stylish doesn’t have to be hard – try wearing an easy shift dress for a night out on the town, and you’ll quickly see how effortless being chic can be [slash] turn heads in this fabulous little number. The second I spotted this one on Asos.com, I knew it would be the answer to my style prayers. It has a simple silhouette that’s flattering on just about any body type (especially if you’re petite), is short and sexy, and made in an ultra lightweight fabric that’s perfect for warmer nights out.
