From Day to Night

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I was paid for this post and received the included shoes as compensation.

 

When it comes to Fall Fashion, I love pieces that I can easily transform from daytime to nighttime outfits. It saves me from having to pick out or purchase a brand new outfit, plus it gets me out the door much quicker. And I’m all about saving time and money!

I purchased this cute floral dress a few months ago and I love how versatile it is. It can be worn any season and can be dressed up or down- it’s all about how you accessorize it.

The best way to change up your look is by changing up your shoes. It’s a simple swap and completely transforms any outfit. 

For a casual look, I love wearing white sneakers! I wear my BRENNAN sneakers from madden NYC all the time and the classic silhouette and easy slip-on fit makes it my favorite everyday style. More and more, I’m seeing dressy outfits paired with white sneakers and they always look so fashionable. Such an effortless way to combine comfort with fashion. Add a jean jacket and you have yourself a super cute outfit that looks good on everyone.

The BRENNAN sneakers come in nine different colors and the white one has a cute black/red design in the back of the shoe. It adds a nice little touch to a plain white sneaker.

Transition your day to night look by adding a classic black heel. For Fall, I love wearing heel boots. I found these madden NYC ROCKETT women’s high heel ankle boots and I had to get them.

I love the gold accents and open but closed concept- perfect to show off your pedicure. I also incorporated a black belt. That’s it! And look how different it looks from my daytime outfit.

The madden NYC ROCKETT heels also come in red and rose pink color. Which would all go perfectly with my dress.

Brunchin' In Style

Thank you Foster Grant for sponsoring this post. Visit FosterGrant.com for all the latest sunglasses styles at amazing prices – for the many shades of you!

Spending time with my girlfriends is my favorite way to spend my weekends. We all get pretty busy throughout the week, which can sometimes make it difficult to coordinate our schedules. Luckily, no matter the number of commitments we may have, we find a way to make time for each other. Even if it’s only once every three months, a girls day is planned out.

Typically good food is always involved.

This past weekend, my girls and I met up at a new restaurant we found on Instagram. Their atmosphere and food looked so inviting that we just had to go check it out for brunch. Luckily, they had outdoor seating because the day was too pretty to stay inside.

Luke's Kitchen and Bar- Maitland, Florida

Whenever I go out to eat, I love ordering a bunch of small dishes and sharing it with everyone. This way, we all get to sample more items on the menu without getting stuffed on just one plate.

My drink of choice was the restaurant's signature sage mint lemonade. So refreshing and a delicious way to cool down from the warm weather.

Seeing as the day was super sunny, it was the perfect excuse to show off my new Foster Grant sunglasses from their Pre-Summer collection.

The oversized cat eye and sophisticated smoke lens make these sunglasses go with pretty much everything. Whether you’re dressed up or down, you’ll look glam in these chunky shiny black frames.

Foster Grant

I like to carry at least two pairs of sunglasses in my car, just in case I want to change up my look throughout the day. I brought my other Foster Grant glasses with me to brunch so my friend Christine could try them on.

When it comes to sunglasses, I tend to play it safe with either black or brown frames. For this pair, I wanted to try something different but a shade that would still compliment my style.

Foster Grant

These round 70’s inspired purple and yellow ombre lenses caught my attention the moment I saw them on the Foster Grant website.  They add a nice variety to my collection and have motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and try out more styles.

Look how good they look on Christine!

With more than 85 years of eyewear expertise, Foster Grant creates every pair of glasses with real quality you can see and feel every time you wear them. All of their sunglasses feature 100% UVA/UVB protection, superior clarity, and scratch-resistant lenses, and are carefully constructed to give you the most comfortable fit.

Best part? They are affordably priced!

Fall in Florida

Off the shoulder grey sweater

There is a cold front expected to hit Florida this weekend, with the temperature reaching 55 degrees! For some, especially if you’re living up north, that is a normal day for you. But for us in Florida, or should I say me, I'm kind of freaking out! Thankfully, they'll be plenty of sunshine and cute fall fashion to keep me warm.

During the Spring time, I added a few off the shoulder pieces to my closet and fell in love with the style. Now that the temperatures are getting a bit colder, I can still keep on with the trend with this cute off the shoulder grey sweater.

Perfect to pair with jeans and maybe a cute jacket or scarf.

This is Fall in Florida!

Staying Cozy This Holiday Season With Solmate Socks

Thank you Solmate Socks for sponsoring this post. Learn more about Solmate Socks and grab your coupon for Free Shipping in time for the holidays!

You know that amazing feeling you get when you put on your favorite sweater when the temperature drops? Well, now your feet can feel just as cozy this holiday season thanks to Solmate Socks!

These super comfortable socks will add color and spice up your sock collection by offering multi-pattern mismatched (yet still stylish) socks!

Solmate Socks

If you know me, you know I am the queen of mismatch socks (and staying warm), so being able to do both makes me a big fan of this brand. Solmate Socks were pretty much made for me... and for everyone in your family! They offer socks for adults, children and babies!

How cute are these patterns?  I especially love the knee high socks. Perfect for wearing them with a long t-shirt around the house or even outside with long boots.

Solemate Socks

Solmate Socks also offers Holiday themed socks as well.

Solemate Socks

One of the many reasons why I support Solmate Socks is because they are Eco-friendly and knit in the USA (Oregon) with cotton yarn that is created by recovering scraps from the production of other cotton products, mainly t-shirts. By using this recycling process, those scraps are diverted from landfills, and the demand for new cotton is not increased.

Besides adding a little something fun to your feet and continually working to improve their methods to ensure the lowest possible amount of waste, Solmate Socks believes in giving back.

Solemate Socks

Did you know socks are the most needed items at homeless shelters?

In an effort to do their part, Solmate has been donating socks for the past 17 years to various charity groups across the US, including family services organizations, refugee centers and homeless shelters.

These donation recipients have shown immense gratitude over the years, and they have reinforced how important it is for their company to continually find ways to give back and help those who are less fortunate.

Below are some of the local organizations Solmate Socks have donated socks to:

Solemate Socks

Along with socks, Solmate Socks has a line of accessories that include hats, scarves, and regular & fingerless mittens. Check out their whole collection here.

Life's too short for matching socks, especially when you can wear fun and beautiful Solmate Socks. Purchase a pair for yourself and give another one to a loved one this holiday season. They make the perfect gift and stocking stuffer!

Use promo code: FUNSOCKS for free shipping until December 31, 2017.

Fall Plaid Look at the Pumpkin Patch

Fall Plaid Dress

Fall is here and let me tell you, I'm all about it!

I love dressing up in warm colors and taking my boots out for a spin! Although it doesn't get too cold here in Florida, it's always fun getting in the Fall spirit.

I rarely wear dresses but this plaid dress was super comfy and the length is perfect! It allows you to move around without feeling restricted. I paired it with my favorite boots and headed out for some Fall fun!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Can you believe last week was my first time ever at a pumpkin patch and carving a pumpkin? I loved the whole process from picking out the pumpkin, to cleaning and carving it! I have to admit, it was much more time consuming and harder than I thought. But seeing my final carved pumpkin, made it all worth it.

If you've never gone to a pumpkin patch, I highly suggest you get to it! This particular pumpkin patch was located at Club Lake Plantation during their Fall Festival- which included games, hay rides and a corn maze. 

Such a fun experience and one I plan to do again next year!

Here are our pumpkin creations! Can you guess which one is mine?

Hint: Mine is the adorable one! ;)

New CHI® Clothes Iron: From Hair to Wear

CHI Steam

When I was in high school and before flat irons even existed, my sister and I used a regular clothes iron to straighten our hair. Although it worked, it wasn't practical and most importantly, safest method to straighten our hair. A few years (and a couple of burns) later, we finally purchased a real hair iron. The brand? CHI®!

I remember doing research online and all the reviews for CHI products were all positive! That was first flat iron I ever purchased and the brand I still continue to use today.

Now this world-renowned brand that has innovated the haircare industry for over 30 years, has come out with a high-performance line of irons and steamers! How amazing is that? Engineered with CHI flat iron technology, these products, from the CHI® Steam, line delivers the precise results you can only expect from CHI.

CHI irons are the only irons developed using the same titanium-infused ceramic soleplate technology that powers the flagship CHI® G2 Flat Iron for hair. Designed with a sleek look and engineered for high performance, the CHI® Electronic Retractable Iron is the perfect balance of style and function.

Besides the advanced technology capabilities, the iron is absolutely gorgeous! It is bigger than your standard iron but the results and performance far outweighs any weight difference. Not only can you iron but you can steam as well.

If you're looking for a more professional way to steam, CHI also has a steamer in their line. All items are available now and can be purchased at Bed, Bed and Beyond

CHI: From Hair to Wear

CHI was kind enough to send me the iron to test out and the opportunity for one of my lucky readers to win a CHI retractable iron!

Update: Contest closed and winner has been selected.

From shinny perfectly styled hair to wrinkle-free clothes for any occasion, now it's easier than ever to create a flawless look from head to toe thanks to CHI®!

Sustainable Style with prAna

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with prAna and #WeAllGrowLatina Network.

This year has been a year of change for me. I've slowly started incorporating healthy eating habits and consistent exercise into my daily routine. These positive changes have also shifted my views on what I should be consuming on a regular basis- the books I'm reading, the shows I'm watching and the brands I associate myself with.

I've been wanting to find cute yoga clothes for quite some time now. Clothing that was not only comfortable but also made from good quality material.

My search was over when I was introduced to prAna!

prAna

praAna creates stylish and sustainable clothing and accessories that are made out of organic cotton, recycled wool, hemp, recycled polyester and responsible down.

They partner with companies and factories that adhere to strict guidelines for safety and efficacy, so they’re able to make beautiful and functional products that we can feel good about wearing.

I love that all the pieces are versatile and can be worn for exercise activity or daily wear.

I have on the lighweight Liana Sweater in the color Moonrock. There is an off white and mint option as well. I paired my top with black leggings and black sports bra.

If you're not working out, you can also wear the top with a white tank top underneath and cute cutoff shorts. Perfect for hot summer days.

Boho Chic

Boho Chic- Festival Look

I've never been into the Boho Chic festival vibe look. Not because I didn't like the style. I just didn't think I could pull it off. I initially bought this red long maxi dress and wore it with a black leather jacket with black bootie heels and a black chocker. I loved how the outfit came together but wanted to find another way to wear the dress that didn't involve the jacket and that had more of the bohemian feel.

Instead of black accessories, I changed it up with gold and brown tones. I typically never wear hats but thought adding it brought together the new outfit nicely. I like evolving my style and trying out new trends or looks. That's the beauty of fashion, it's always fun to experiment!

Off The Shoulder Top: The new Spring Trend

Ruffle Top

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you know I practically live in jeans every single day. They're so comfortable and versatile. You can dress it up with any type of top depending on your style and mood.

I decided to create a look that would be perfect for a casual happy hour with the girls. Living in Florida, it can get pretty hot, so wearing anything light or off the shoulder is the perfect way to stay cool.

Lately I've been seeing a bunch of tops and dresses incorporating the off the shoulder ruffle accent. I love it because it adds a bit of personality to your otherwise plain top. Put on some cute heels, colored purse and matching lipstick and you're good to go!

Coach Dinky Purse

Coach Dinky Purse

If you ask me, adding a pop of color can enhance any outfit- even if you're just dressed casual. Pairing a colored purse and matching lips makes the perfect accessory to what you're wearing without really trying.

I used to own only black and tan purses but soon realized how necessary expanding my color scheme was to my fashion style. Anything in the red color family is the best place to start- then you can work your way to more funkier colors.

The new Coach Spring 2017 Dinky bag is a great purse to add to your collection.  The versitile purse/clutch is the perfect size and it comes in a huge array of colors! I chose the gorgeous Glovertanned (burgundy) purse from the 1941 collection to spice up my outfit- and of course with matching lips to make the purse stand out even more.

Take a look at the whole Dinky 1941 collection here.

Polka Dot Midi Skirt

Polka Dot Midi Skirt

When it comes to fashion, I like to keep it simple and classy.

Recently, I've been into the mid skirt trend. I love the length of wearing pants but in a cute skirt form. You can normally find me in jeans but sometimes it's nice to dress up and play around with different styles.

I paired this polka dot midi skirt with a white off the shoulder top and added a gold chocker and hoop earrings to bring the look together. I tucked in the top to showoff the skirt a bit more since it was too long to wear untucked. A nice white bodysuit would look nice as well.
