Two weeks ago, my mom and I stayed in Miami for five days to celebrate her birthday! Miami has tons of amazing hotel properties to choose from so it wasn’t difficult to find two for our stay. We wanted a city to beach experience so we went with J.W. Marriott Marquis Hotel, an upscale 5-star hotel located in downtown Miami, and AC Hotel Miami Beach, a European inspired boutique hotel located across the street from the beach.

Good afternoon everyone! Today I’m featuring not one – but two – new outfits from Missguided, a women’s fashion online store from the UK.

A couple months ago, I was introduced to Missguided after ordering a pair of wide legged pants from their petite section. (Again, with the wide legged pants – you can never have enough!) I fully expected to take them to a tailor (because I’m so petite) but was pleasantly surprised to see that they fit me perfectly – right out of the package! Then I started thinking, “surely everything else has to fit this way too?” And I got really, really excited because this never happens! 9/10 I have to take something to the tailor or fix it myself.

So effortless…

Tucked in. Tucked out. Tied in a bow. Tied in a knot. Nothing is more chic (and easy to style) than a white button-down. I firmly believe it’s a wardrobe essential. I own like 10. I have one for meetings, one for lazy days, one for the pool and beach, etc. etc. Each button-down has a different look and feel to it; adding instant polish to whatever it is I’m wearing that day. And each one, I’ve worn over and over and over! Thus, making it a great investment!

Simply put, a white button-down belongs in your closet. Don’t have one? Don’t worry…

When it comes to decorating my studio apartment (click here to see a full tour), I take small steps. Simple things like rearranging my coffee table display, switching out my old rug for a new one, changing my bedding, adding a new piece of artwork to my collection can totally change the look and feel of my apartment.

That’s because tiny floor plans, like mine (my apartment is less than 500 sq. ft.), don’t allow for a lot of wiggle room when it comes to rearranging furniture. Everything counts in a small space. Just moving my coffee tables or placing my accent chair in a different spot or rearranging my decorative items can completely change the flow.

It’s time (literally) for me to wear a different watch. I’ve been wearing the same one over and over for about a year now; hesitant to buy a new one. Recently, I was introduced to CLUSE watches, a watch brand based in Amsterdam. And well, by the looks of things, have made the “switch” to a new brand. Here’s why…

Hello, hello from Houston!

I’m back in Texas visiting my boyfriend and family for the weekend. Planning to be back in Florida tomorrow. Wishing I could buy a jet plane so that I could travel back and forth more often. Ugh, anyone else feel the same? Have you lived through a long distance relationship? If so, I would love to hear your stories and tips for making it work!

When it comes to lace, I swear… Alexis does it best. I absolutely adore this blue romper from her latest collection. It’s bright and playful. Perfect for a vacation or an evening out. It’s cut from the most beautiful blue French lace that accentuates your waist and shows off your legs. And is definitely a statement piece!

I love denim. It’s one of my favorite trends to feature on the blog. It’s also pretty affordable (i.e. you can get a lot of use out of one denim piece) and really easy to style. Whether you pair denim with a leather jacket, red bandana and white sneakers for a downtown vibe, or throw on sandals, a straw tote and a floppy hat for a beach-y feel, you can pretty much make denim work, no matter what your preferences are.

Downside: Denim can be tough to wear during the summertime because it’s usually made out of heavy, structured fabric. Until…
