Lunch Date

Top: Forever 21 | Kimono: Charlotte Russe | Jeans: J. Crew Factory | Wedges: Nordstrom Rack | Bag: The Sak | Dangling coin bracelet: LOFT | Sunnies: Love Shopping Miami
Happy Friday, everyone!
I wore this outfit for a lunch date with some of my therapist friends last week.
This is one of my favorite places to shoot (some examples: here, here, here) and it was like a block away from where we had lunch. So I decided to take some blog pictures and who do I bump into but none other than Jackie of Dash of Panache. She's super sweet and her hair is even more fabulous in person. 

So about the outfit.. I'm obsessed with kimonos lately. Which is pretty late in the blog world, but I had been looking for the perfect one all summer long and now I own two. The thing I like most about kimonos is that they're thin enough to work for the fall in warm-weather climates like Miami. The print on this one is a little more spring and summer, but I have another one that's perfect for transitioning into fall, with a darker, more muted floral print. You'll see that one in my next post, or maybe the one after that. :)

Thanks for reading!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

This is not a Mother's Day post in September, nor is it in honor of a special date or event in our lives. It is simply a fun little post that came together unplanned when my mom and I dressed very similarly to go to the mall one day. This happens a lot, actually.

Shoesday Tuesday: Let it Rain

Hi folks! Here is a late Shoesday Tuesday post inspired by today's god awful weather.

When it Rains
blue bow flats | cloudy umbrella | confetti flats
yellow Hunter boots | floral jelly flats | black bow flats
Let it Rain
short red boots | black flats | fuschia rim umbrella | forrest green boots
 black floral boots | navy floral boots | confetti flats | pink Hunter boots | red Hunter boots

Miami is infamous for its moody weather, especially in the summer. But it's still hurricane season, so we'll continue to be subjected to some rainy days (and I do mean days) until the end of November.

So of course I've been wanting a pair of rain boots since FOREVER AGO. Why I haven't bought a pair I haven't a clue. I think I've been waiting for just the right pair to come along. And now there's the rain flat too, which looks less out of place in Miami. Because even though we get loads of rain, it's pretty weird to see people out and about in rain boots.

Thus, if I weren't on a shopping ban and hadn't had a slip-up last weekend at Nordstrom Rack, I would get the black floral Ted Baker boots in a heartbeat. They are so pretty and could probably work year round. But then there's the cute flats too, particularly the black bow flats which are so adorable and work appropriate!

I think I may buy something from here by the end of the week. In fact, if my favorite items are still available by Friday, I'll get one of them. Rationalize away, Nathy.

Hope you enjoyed this edition of Shoesday Tuesday!

Castillo de San Marcos

I love this little gem of a site.
Construction began in 1672.  First it was Spanish, then British, then Spanish again, and lastly American.
It's so rich with history. It's a little piece of Spain right here in Florida.
