Rosie Pope Maternity

White after Labor Day…yes, it still manages to make headlines (boring, I know). I have seen so many articles in prominent fashion sites and magazines about this issue…which is bizarre to me because honestly, white is year round as is EVERY SINGLE COLOR! The days of following rules are long gone and if you’re smart, you can make even the most summery piece suitable for fall/winter.

This Rosie Pope maternity is a perfect example of that. It’s white, crisp and lace…certainly not the “typical” fall attire but add a denim jacket (easiest fix ever) and some fall colors and voila, you’re good to go! Continue reading →

Ted & Muffy

Fall in Miami….the notion of sipping warm drinks, wearing cozy knits and rocking boots is in the minds of all us gals but the reality of fall in Miami is very different. We get to pick certain aspects of those notions but never all of them combined. You’d overheat before you know it ;)
Anyway, I always opt for the boot option when it comes to fall attire because I can keep the rest of my look breezy and light.
When the team from Ted & Muffy reached out to me offering one of their custom fitted foots, I debated for days which one to take because let’s be honest, boots are timeless and can be in your wardrobe for many seasons to come. I wanted to pick something that I could foresee myself in this fall and for many falls after. Enter this suede knee high boot. Yeah, it’s perfect.

Sassoon Salon

There are a kazillion perks to vacationing all summer BUT one downside is the effects that the sun, sea and hard water (very common in Europe) can have on your hair.
I deal with this every summer in Switzerland.
The water is extremely hard and it always leaves my hair fried towards the end of our stay.
Sassoon Salon reached out to me and offered to “revive” my hair from the exhaustion of summer and I gladly accepted.
After many swims in the Lake of Zurich and washing my hair with the Swiss hard water, my hair was thirsty and brittle.
Step inside the Sassoon Salon in Miami with me and find out what steps they took to give my hair some much needed CPR ;)

Tiffany Rose

Okay, you guys know I’m been kind of hard on maternity clothes. Mostly because I seldom feel amazing in them and because I’ve often found that instead of accenting the belly, they tend to camouflage it…making you look even bigger. But pop open a bottle of champagne because I’ve found an exception to the rule! Case and point: Tiffany Rose from England. They sent me this stunning dress to wear to our friend’s wedding and let me tell you, I was shocked at how good I felt in it and how sexy it was on. Yes, maternity clothes can make you feel good and sexy…who knew?!!

My husband said it’s one of his favorite dresses…so you know I’m giving the crew at Tiffany Rose major brownie points for designing clothes that will make us preggo gals feel damn good. Continue reading →

Juvia Miami

A while ago there was a feature in Racked Miami featuring its diverse and beautiful “Instagrammable Walls”…I knew exactly which wall I felt needed recognition so I made sure to shoot it as soon as I could and submit my image. This stunning and ‘live’ wall is part of Juvia’s allure. The restaurant sits atop of the famed 1111 garage on Lincoln Road and it provides its clientele with some of the best views in South Beach…but let’s be honest, the view right up the wall is pretty fabulous too. If you haven’t seen it, I encourage you to take a peek at it next time you’re around. Grab yourself a drink, enjoy the view and soak in the greenery.

Pink Blush Maternity

I swore I wasn’t going to buy any maternity looks this pregnancy but truth be told, this Pink Blush Maternity dress looks like anything but maternity. It’s a dress that can easily be worn pre/post pregnancy. It has a simple tie in the back letting you adjust the tightness which also helps give it some shape. And of course, there’s the color…it can not be more summery. It’s a fabulous color that seems to work on basically everyone. I wore this simple number to a dinner and it was a big hit. Paired with some gold and black accessories, it was an easy choice for this preggo mama. Continue reading →

Keep It Simple

Simplicty is the most complicated thing to accomplish…or so I’ve been told although I have to admit, since becoming a mom, simplicity is my middle name. That’s why I love dresses so much, they keep things simple. Now that I’m flaunting a little baby bump the notion of simplicity is even more important. I want pieces that I’m comfortable in, can chase my two year old toddler in and will allow me to maintain my personality. This look is super simple and thanks to the elastic waistband (yes…elastic waistbands have become my best friends), I’ll be able to wear it for at least another month (or two…or is that wishful thinking??).

Summer White

White…you are just a perfect color, aren’t you? I mean, there are summer whites, winter whites, fall whites, spring whites…
Truth is, you can’t go wrong with white (or black but that’s a different post).
It just looks polished and clean. I got this dress at Ann Taylor for a steal (it’s linked and still on major sale) and I loved it immediately.
Not only does it “camouflage” my baby bump (who knew white could camouflage), it moves so nicely when I walk. And you know I love me some girly dresses.
Pretty sure “fit and flare” was created for me.
On a side note, Ann Taylor has a lot of fabulous dresses on sale right now (here) and if my belly wasn’t getting bigger with each passing day, I would be jumping on those sales immediately. Continue reading →

Nicole Miller

Little fun fact about this dress, my mom purchased it to wear at my rehearsal dinner almost 8 years ago.
She ended up wearing a different one and this beauty sat in her closet for a couple years before she rediscovered it and gave it to me.
I waited for the right occasion to wear it and as you know, I have a ton of dresses, so sometimes the perfect moment can take a year (or 5) to arrive.
Fast forward to our dear friends Mario & Gilles’ wedding this past month. They are one of our chicest friends and when they invited us to their wedding, I knew I had to find something that was a little bit special and definitely up to their standards. So, this Nicole Miller dress was the perfect choice.

Patio Dress

I love me (especially now) a free flowing easy dress…especially in the hot summer months. You’re able to basically walk around naked and no one will know…except you ;)
I loved the fit and the fun tie-dye look to this Shibori patio dress by Banana Republic.
And it has pockets. I think we don’t need to go into just how fabulous it is to have pockets.
Banana Republic is doing an amazing job lately with their new collections. This is one of several dresses that I picked up while browsing their summer collection. Marissa Webb has done a tremendous job on giving this classic brand a new and trendier vibe while staying true to its roots.
