Ever visit a major city and see someone walking down the street wearing a killer outfit? Someone who captures your attention? Who stands out from the crowd?

Cue street style.

I’ve always been a fan. But don’t get much an opportunity to share street style shots on here because I live in beautiful Palm Beach where everything is manicured and perfect. Street style doesn’t vibe here like it does in a major city. Where you need cars. Buildings. People. Movement. You get it.

So when I get the opportunity to shoot street style in Miami for the blog, I get excited! And basically treat the street like my catwalk…

Fun fact: Street style emerged when people like goths, hippies, hipsters, etc. all started dressing different. They stood out. People noticed. You could relate to them – whether that be through their style or culture. And above all, they were authentic.

One of my goals this year was to start featuring more and more emerging designers. Designers who are somewhat new to the scene or getting noticed and growing in strength and popularity. They’re blooming. And super cool.

Cue high-end Brazilian brand, Iorane.

Iorane has been around for 20 years. Mainly in Brazil. Until 2015, when they decided to go global and expand to places like Miami.

Cue Stephanie.

I was first introduced to the brand when I saw Rocky Barnes wearing them. Then I met with them in person at StyleMrkt and fell in love with their line. Each and every piece was different. Classic yet edgy. Cheeky. So me…

What’s cool about street style is that it bridges the gap between everyday people and brands. It opens the door for brands to get noticed. All it takes is one shot. And next thing you know, you’re getting featured in major magazine. And the brand explodes overnight.

But even with all of this, one thing remains the same – street style is authentic. And the most successful bloggers who share street style snaps remain true to themselves. Perhaps this is why I (and many more) love it so much.

Hello, bow! Hello, Wednesday! Hello, CRAZY weekend!

SWIMMIAMI (also known as “Swim Week”) officially starts tomorrow! And I’m beyond excited! Tomorrow, I’m attending the opening party at the W Hotel in South Beach. Then, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – I’m attending shows, lounges, events – you name it! I plan to document my journey (and outfits) on Instagram (@thestylebungalow) and Snapchat (@stylebungalow) so be sure to follow along!

Then on Monday (my birthday, whoop whoop!) I’m flying back to Houston to visit my boyfriend and family for a week… PHEW!

Today’s look is one of my recent favorites! I’m wearing a bow top from NA-KD (use code: Bungalow20 for 20%) and shorts from Milly via Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton. Just an FYI – this top runs a little small (it’s cropped) so be sure to order a size up or wear it with high waisted shorts/jeans, if you end up buying it! It’s so adorable!

One more thing! Happy 30th birthday to mi amor in Houston! I love you so much and can’t wait to be with you next week… <3 (Let’s see if he even reads this… Guys, my boyfriend doesn’t even have an Instagram account. #eyeroll #lolz)

Anyways, wishing everyone a great week! Click the links above to shop today’s look…
