Outfit Inspiration

This part of the year can be a bit difficult to dress for us in Miami. It's definitely not sweater weather, but you're not quite ready to embrace summer. It makes it even harder when you flip through spring fashion magazines and your favorite blogger's sites to see them still bundled up for the cold.
So what's there to wear at this time of year? 
Hopefully this post will help you out!
We took a few pieces from our "winter" (since we don't really get cool weather here in the tropics) outfits and few from our favorite summer go-to's to create some pretty cool spring looks.
No matter what season it is you can't go wrong with a t-shirt and jeans. Gabby added a cute fuzzy bag to add a unique touch with some classic black pumps.
Here are some similar pieces you should check out:

 
I wanted to make classic white trousers a bit cooler and less business like so I added a band T and a pair of my wildest boots. The patent leather is more of a winter piece but the white pants freshen it up a bit.


I love wearing dresses, so any chance I get to put one on I take advantage! On warm days it's nice to have a light, cool dress on. This dress is perfect for spring and summer. As the temperatures start to rise the next few months you can wear a crochet dress like this with a slip under. When it's full-blown summer it would look really "boho-chic" as a bathing suit cover-up or even with a briefs and a matching bra to give it a sexier look.
Here Gabby is smashing it in a chic, simple everyday look. Black jeans, white T and a pop of color. Not too hard, right?

Bows and ties are so feminine and really add a dainty touch to any outfit. Instead of going for the typical denim shorts, I opted for a pair of vintage capris.

Cotton dresses are an essential for rising temperatures. It's an easy way to look sophisticated and keep cool during the warmer months. The dark color makes it easier to wear all year round!

As you can see from our great mix-match of looks, that it's fun to mix wintery elements with pieces made for summer. It's a nice way to transition to the next season, rather than wearing full-on summer looks like crop tops and denim shorts in the beginning of March.


MFW Autumn + Winter 2018

MFW Autumn + Winter 2018

Milan Fashion Week is officially over and it's time to round up some of the season's best shows. These collections definitely proved that the eighties are Fall's biggest trend so far with thigh-high boots, faux fur outerwear, and oversized menswear being the key pieces. Love what the designers in Milan had to offer and they definitely didn't hold back the glam.

PHILOSOPHY DI LORENZO SERAFINI


Margaux Hemingway was the muse for this 80s inspired collection.
It was also heavy on denim, suede fringe, prairie frills and Western detailing.
The second half of the show was more about black velvet, pink lace, and tulle. 

BLUMARINE


Pretty silk dresses, feminine suiting, and AMAZING outerwear all wrapped into one epic show.


KRIZIA


American Psycho the novel was said to have been the inspiration for this collection. Lots of oversized tailoring once again and a neutral palette perfect for Autumn/Winter.

LUISA BECCARIA


This is my first time taking a look at this designer and I was blown away! I love the delicate lace dresses mixed with power suits and wide-brimmed hats.
"Her models looked like guests at a lavish wedding in the country."
"Beccaria took her cues from Marianne Faithfull in her Rolling Stones days, when she might’ve borrowed attenuated tailoring from Keith or Mick."

FENDI


Fendi added more trench coats, boots, and baby doll dresses to our wish lists!

ATTICO


Last but not least, this line by Giorgia and Gilda Ambrosio was full of 80's glam with pearls, velvet, thigh-high boots, and ostrich feathers galore. This collection was titled Bellisima and inspired by Italian women.
"This wardrobe is like that of an actress. It has pieces for the stage and for daily life."

Bring on Paris Fashion Week!

In the Trenches

In the Trenches

Ever since I was a little girl, I had always wanted a trench coat. I don't know if I simply had great taste at the age of seven or it was my obsession with being a spy. Over a decade later, I made little Nikki proud and snagged myself the perfect trench from a flea market on South Beach.
Trench coats are a classic staple that will never go out of style.

 
 


A few seasons ago, the ultimate trench coat maker, Burberry, came out with brightly colored coats.



This season, bloggers and fashion stars are sporting vinyl trenches.
 

 


Each year the latest trends inspire new styles of the trench coat, but nothing is quite like a basic khaki trench.
