10-amazing-things-to-see-and-do-miami

We are back from Miami and we couldn’t be more recharged! We loved the energy and the feeling of being in a city that never sleeps. I knew Miami was a party city, but I didn’t expect it to be such a lively, modern, hip and artsy place! I think I missed the feeling of being in a big city, with beautiful water view areas, hundreds of cool food and drinks spots, a Latin feel, amazing shopping and did we say, art? Yes, Miami has it all – and the weather couldn’t be more aligned with everything the city has to offer!

If you’re looking for a 3-5 day spring or off-season getaway Miami is a great choice that will leave you hungry for more! Here are the 10 Most amazing things to see and do in Miami!

Girlfriend Jeans

It had been a while since I started looking for a pair of jeans to be my go-to pants for Spring. I wanted to steer away from the distressed skinny (my wardrobe is already full of those) and invest in a more classic straight fit. My goal was to get something both comfortable and flattering at the same time, so after trying all sorts of trendy jeans styles like mom, wide leg and relaxed boyfriend, I finally settled with the girlfriend jeans!

This style is still quite fitted, but not so snuggle in the ankles, giving a more relaxed look that I find perfect for warmer days.  I specially like how this girlfriend jeans are high waisted and cropped at the ideal length, making it fun to play with outfit proportions, like pairing it with a shorter suede jacket and loafers.

Spring Layering

Not sure about all of you but we are officially over winter and cold! At least in our minds and in our hearts! Although the temperature has been pretty stubborn these past weeks and didn’t want to show us any higher digits, we can’t stop thinking of refreshing our outfits with new Spring pieces and wearing our lighter layers.

Almost as important as during fall, Spring layering is meant to transition you from winter thicker clothes to more lightweight outfits.

I usually mix a spring / summer piece with a thicker cover-up and try to at least cheer myself up when I am indoors and get to feel like it’s not winter anymore. I am wearing one of my favorite blouses with a wool coatigan. The top is a mix between a silk blouse and a French tunic which I love to wear with denim shorts or suede skirts in the summer.

I like the clash between the feminine style of the top and the edgy crop cut of the coat and ripped black jeans. I wore this to work the other day, so I toned down the look with ankle boots, but this can look really cute with heeled boots or pumps on a fancier night.

Styling a Camel Coat

Since last winter I was on the lookout for a camel coat. I had the perfect one pictured in my mind , but I couldn’t quite find it in stores. Whenever I was shopping, I never saw anything with the exact fit, color, length or price that I had in mind. Don’t you hate what that that happens? ( First world problems! LOL ).  As  last winter passed by I kind of gave up finding it, but once fall came along I made it my goal to get the perfect Camel Coat and I finally bought it at Zara!

Camel is a color that goes with everything and this length specifically makes any outfit look chicer without much effort. I’ve been living in this coat since November and I’m not even close to being tired of it, I think it kind of became my uniform for the season!

Since then I’ve been styling my Camel Coat with white sneakers for a casual cool vibe,  with dress pants and skirts in the office and with various blanket scarfs. Honestly I wear anytime I need to look put together and warm! My favorite color combo at the moment is camel + grey + black with some hints of gold ! 😉

8 Pieces You Should Wear This Spring

Spring is almost here and if you are anything like us, you can’t wait to put your winter clothes aside! As we step into the flower season I keep seeing some cute spring outfits popping up on my Instagram timeline and I keep checking the new collections that my favorite brands are releasing. As my Spring 17 wishlist started to take form and became pretty solid, I thought I should share with you my top 8 Pieces You Should Wear This Spring :

spring-17-wardrobre
1.Floral Maxi Dress 2.Slippers 3. Ruffle Sleeve Top4.Straight Leg Jeans5.Blush Pink Bag6. Statement Earrings7.Block Heels 8.Denim Jacket.

 

Floral dress: spring is all about flowers, so there is nothing that suits better the season than a floral dress. A maxi version can easily be dressed up or down according to occasion and weather. It’ll go pretty well with sandals during your spring break or with a light jacket and a hat for colder days .

Slippers: these are a sensation among the fashionistas, but they quickly became popular due to its cool and chic vibe. They are so easy and comfy to wear that I don’t see any reasons why you shouldn’t try too.

Statement Sleeve: this might sound a bit repetitive as we’ve been talking about statement sleeves since last spring – I particularly love it! But there is something about a ruffled sleeve that is hard to resist!

Straight leg jeans: I can’t wait to drop the skinny jeans + booties combo for the straight leg + slippers!  It’s finally time to show off some skin and invest on lighter jeans styles. I’m particularly looking for a nice one with a frayed hem or distressed details.

Blush colors: although I could live in black, white, beige and gray,  I do feel like adding a pop of color as the season changes. Blush colors are perfect as they still lay on the neutral zone, but can brighten up your look. Adding an accessory in these tonos such as a crossbody bag is a great way to try it out.

Statement earrings: This is quite a challenge for a minimalist kind of person like me, but I’ve been dying to try statement earrings lately. This is definitely something I will wear this spring!

Block Heel:  who knew pumps could be so cute and comfy? This ideal heel goes with almost every occasion I can think of! Definitely worth the investment for me, specially the low heeled one! I’m sure I can wear it from the office to the happy hour .

Denim jacket: this has always been part of our wardrobe in any season, but denim jackets are definitely a spring must wear right? If you are willing to try something different and cool, an embroidered piece is a good call!

So what do you think? Are you ready to wear these too? Let us know in the comments below! 😉
