Bag:: Givenchy
Sunglasses:: Céline
Boots:: Stuart Weitzman 


This is my first official outfit post for 2018. I am so excited for what's to come this year, I truly feel like this is my year, and last year was a learning experience. I just came back from Bimini, in the Bahamas (which was so beautiful), and now, I am ready to get back to my daily grind. I have so many exciting collabs coming up, as well as new pieces for my swimwear line, Tosh Swimwear coming out soon!

So let's face it, I shot this outfit in December (before I went blonder at Igk Salon Miami), and am finally getting around to posting this chic outfit. You can never go wrong with a suede coat when it's cold out! This amazing vintage brown suede Gucci coat is from What Goes Around Comes Around Miami. 

 I paired the beautiful coat with a very affordable classic white button down blouse underneath, vegan leather high waisted pants, (these are a random pair I found at Nordstrom, but here are an exact look a like for under $50!), and black thigh high suede boots. I accessorized the look with a wine colored Givenchy "Antigona" handbag and Céline tortoise sunglasses.

15 THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME



You may already know that I am 27 years old, I am an only child, I live in Miami, I love Italian food and rosé wine, I am a fashion, travel, & lifestyle blogger, and my newly launched swimwear line is Tosh Swimwear. But here are 15 things you don't know about me- Let's go!

1.) I was born in Northern Cali

I was born in Walnut Creek, CA on September 20th, 1990. Walnut Creek is located in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. At a young age, my mom, who was a single mom, moved us to LA, and we eventually ended up in South Pasadena, where I started Elementary School and was raised.

2.) I started blogging in 2013

I always received compliments on my outfits, and was asked several times a day by strangers where I had bought certain things that I was wearing. I had already followed the OG bloggers like Song of Style and Sincerely Jules back then, so I decided to start documenting my outfits too with my camera in 2013, and that's when my blog was created. I have really come a long way since then.

3.)I have two dogs

You may have seen my baby boy Pomeranian, Louie on my social media accounts. I also have a beautiful ten year old blonde Chiweenie, Duchess, who keeps a low profile in her bed, and is a rescue dog from Beverly Hills. (A Chiweenie is hybrid mix of a chihuahua and Dachshund aka hot dog.)

4.) I have a blue birthmark- yes, blue!

I have a blue birthmark in the shape of a heart on the back of my right shoulder. It's about an inch long. I get asked every day of my life if it's a bruise, very annoying!

5.) My first time on tv was when I was just 1 year old

I was in a commercial promoting "In Living Color". My line was, "Homey don't play that." Classic. 

6.) I went to five different high schools

I moved a lot when I was in high school, living in places like Las Vegas, and Northern Virginia. I hated it at the time, but now I am so happy I got to experience so many different places and meet so many different kinds of people.  

7.) I love basketball

I am really good at shooting hoops- I think it's because of my long selfie stick arms, (I bet that's something else you didn't know about me lol), and am a huge NBA fan. Growing up in LA helped me become an NBA fan as a kid. It was all about the Lakers back then. I am so happy I lived in LA and go to games during Kobe's Laker days. My favorite teams right now are Thunder, Warriors, Cavs, and Spurs, with high hopes for the Lakers lol.

8.) I am 5'9"

I don't think people realize that I am tall when they meet me because I am so petite-framed. I have been teased my entire life for being tall and thin. Guess who gets the last laugh. (Click here to see my daily at home work out routine and how I stay toned)

9.) I eat so many carbs daily, I have to stop myself sometimes

Not even bragging, it's a sickness. Really, I am trying to eat more veggies even though I hate vegetables. I have learned to love salad, asparagus, carrots, and mushrooms for the sake of my organs over the years.

10.) I drink green tea errrrr-day

Green tea is the key to good health, and good skin! I drink at least one cup of hot green tea a day. In the Summer, I drink iced green tea. 

11.) I have lived in Miami for 7 years now

I moved here by myself with my dog Duchess on Christmas Day in 2010.

12.) I used to model and do featured background work on tv shows & movies

I've modeled since right after high school before my blogging career. I even did featured extra work on popular tv shows and movie sets in between modeling jobs when I was 19. My first major shows included MTV's The Hard Times of RJ Berger, Glee, & Desperate Housewives.

13.) My first job was as waitress at ihop at the age of 15 1/2

I couldn't wait to make my own money, I became a waitress at the age of 15 1/2 (the legal age to work in Virginia) at a local ihop in Centerville, VA. It was a great experience, and I think it was a huge part of my great work ethic now. It was a huge responsibility having a real job that young.

14.) I am 4.1% Eskimo, 6.5% Ashkenazi Jewish, & 26.8% Spanish

I just found this out last month, thanks to to a DNA kit from MyHeritage.com 

Yes, you read that correctly. My grandmother is Canadian (from Saskatchewan), and she is French Canadian, and part Eskimo apparently. Eskimos originally came from eastern Siberia and north east Asia.

My grandmother from my dad's side, who I've only met a few times, originally came from Germany and is Jewish. 

15.) I have over 200 pairs of shoes

You can never have too many shoes!

I usually don't wear red, but I couldn't resist this red leather Gucci coat from What Goes Around Comes Around Miami. The Holiday Season is the perfect time to stun in red tones. I paired the stunning leather coat with a classic white t-shirt underneath, Anine Bing high waisted jeans, and Louboutin "So Kate" pumps in nude. I wanted to add a pop of color to the look, so I added my new oversized baby blue ombre Porsche Design aviators.

CASUAL CHIC IN CHANEL



:: Outfit Details ::

Chanel Blazer:: What Goes Around Comes Around | Similar style hereunder $100

Who doesn't love Chanel? I have loved Chanel's tweed blazer since I was little, so shooting this stunning light pink one from What Goes Around Comes Around Miami was so much fun! I added my own iridescent Chanel pin onto the blazer, a classic white t-shirt underneath to keep it simple, and my white Chanel classic.

 I completed the casual chic look with a pair of light distressed 7 For All Mankind jeans, and pink Valentino "Rockstud" heels. Shop pink blazers in all styles here.

A PINK CHRISTMAS



Happy Holidays everyone! I decided to have a pink Christmas this year! I fell in love with this bubblegum pink tree from Treetopia. The "Pretty In Pink" tree has been featured in many home decor magazines, and it is honestly one of the prettiest trees I've ever seen. This tree comes in many sizes, including small table top sizes. The smaller sizes would be adorable in a nursery, a play room for kids, or even an office.

All of my ornaments are unicorn and dessert themed- with a few flamingos thrown in. I have gotten so much inspiration from my tree, I wanted to do something fun, so I decided to host a Unicorn Holiday Dinner with friends. We had a delicious taco dinner catered by Miami Beach Mexican restaurant, Tequiztlan. They really have the best Mexican food in the area! 

I think my favorite part of the party was my unicorn cake. I ordered a vanilla 8" white cake from my local grocery store, and asked for a unicorn design. I told them that I was going to put my own cake topper on the cake. I used this one from Etsy. It's so easy to place on the cake, and the cake really made the entire party. 

I always like to give my guests gift bags, and my gift bags were adorable unicorn bags also from Etsy. I collaborated with my favorite candy store, Sugarfina, and we gave my guests large boxes of their "Bubbly Bears", which consists of Champagne Bears with a sour twist. Their classic Champagne-infused gummy bears are dusted in sweet and tart sugar crystals for a sophisticated taste that really "pops," and are made with Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne.
