Looking Cool When it’s Warm

The weather in South Florida is anything but cold right now. In fact, it’s scorching – hot and humid with little to no room for wearing warm clothing. But that’s not stopping me from stepping out in a cute outfit. Besides – If I took off the turtleneck, the look would not be the same. Priorities… 


Leather x Feminine

LEATHER JACKET: (c/o) Bernardo Fashions

BLOUSE, JEANS, SLINGBACKS, CLUTCH, EARRINGS: click pink links for more!

As a blogger, I work really hard at cultivating relationships with brands that not only make sense for me and my style but that I also adore. Yes, this means I grow slower and turn down a lot of projects but at least I stay true to myself and never compromise!

Over the years, I’ve worked with Bernardo (click here and here to see – I can’t believe how much my style has changed over the years!). I continue to work with them because I love wearing their outerwear, particularly their leather jackets. I also love their price points and above all, the craftsmanship that goes into each one of their products. So if you’re in the market for a leather jacket this fall – like this black leather jacket – continue reading this post…


Sweet Sweater

SWEATER: (c/o) Sezane/SKIRT: more options here/HEELS: (c/o) Saks OFF 5th – more options here/EARRINGS: Hermes (c/o) Switch/NECKLACE: (c/o) BaubleBar

Lately, I’ve been pretending it’s 50 degrees in South Florida when it’s really closer to 90 degrees with 100 percent humidity. I wake up in the morning, look at my closest, and instinctually grab a cute sweater before realizing how hot it still is. But I can’t help it! I’ve fallen in love with fall. And have been obsessed with chunky sweaters, leather jackets and miniskirts, blazers, turtlenecks, plaid, the works.


Another blazer…

BLAZER, SWEATER: (c/o) Ann Taylor/SKORT: Zara – similar here, here and here/BELT: Nordstrom/HEELS: (c/o) Saks OFF 5th – love these too!/PURSE: (c/o) Folli Follie ->  save, spend and splurge/NECKLACE, EARRINGS: (c/o) BaubleBar/SUNNIES: Neiman Marcus

As I continue to mention again and again, I can’t live without blazers this fall.

They have always been one of my favorite items in my closet because they are so versatile and time and time again, work for so many occasions like work, weekends or whenever you have nothing to wear. So like basically everything. Am I getting annoying yet? Tell me if I am.


Blazin’ the Way


Blazers. Blazers. Blazers. Blazers.

That’s officially the name of the game this fall, in case you missed the memo and live under a rock. AKA you missed seeing like every fashion girl wear a blazer during fashion month.

The good news? There’s a strong chance you already have a blazer sitting in your closet. Yep, that one. The one you thought you’d only wear to work – not on the weekends.

If that’s you, I’m about to change your mind this season. I’ve already purchased like 5 new blazers and plan to share them all season long. No, I’m not a shopaholic. Ok, maybe yes.


Workin’ 9 to ?

The ahh-mazing thing about being a blogger is that you can reinvent yourself however many times you want to. You don’t have strict rules. Or red tape. You don’t have to ask for permission. You can do whatever you want. And if that means one day you’re “chic and preppy” and the next day you’re “grungy and goth,” then so be it. That’s what style is about. And if your style isn’t evolving, you’ll never grow as a “fashion blogger,” as I like to think.


NYFW 2017

DRESS: (c/o) Storets/HEELS: more options here/SUNNIES: Ray-ban

When most people think of New York Fashion Week, they envision models strutting down the runway in some of the most glamorous creations by household names like Tory Burch, Alexander Wang and Ralph Lauren. They think of Gigi, Kendall, Hailey and now… Kaia. They imagine Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour sitting front row with her infamous sunglasses on. They see swarms of photographers. They see fashion girls and think they are only concerned with brands, status and trends. They see glamour. They see fun. They see opulence. They think, “what a dream…”


Signature 1990s Scarf

Whenever I was bored, I used to rifle through my mom’s things. Who didn’t? I would spend hours and hours going through her costume jewelry, trying on her shoes and belts (some of which I still wear today!) examining her collection of blazers and jackets from the early 90s until she would find me hiding underneath an obscene pile of clothing and say, “Stephanie! What are you doing?! What is this mess?!”

But there was one particular drawer that I loved the most…


Back in Florida <3

Having spent nearly two weeks in New York City crammed in a tiny Airbnb + hotel room, I cannot be more grateful to be back in South Florida where I call this place home. Happy to be back shooting away!

Today’s look – literally, like head-to-toe – is compliments of Express Petites! Ever since they announced “Petites,” I’ve been shopping their line like a shopaholic mad woman.


Go The Blazer Way

If you only buy ten one new piece this season, it should be a blazer.

Per usual, I purchased this blazer from Neiman Marcus on impulse for New York Fashion Week. Why? Because to me blazers are like the magic piece in your wardrobe that will instantly pull together any outfit. Not only do they come in a multitude of styles, but it’s functionality is undeniable – you will get so many miles out of a blazer! I.E. the perfect item(s) to stuff pack in your overweight suitcase for Fashion Week.
