Cool and Cozy

Hi all!

I've worn this outfit twice recently-- to the movies to see The Revenant (great movie!) two weekends ago, and this Sunday to brunch. There was an old lady next to me at brunch that day and she just pointed at my shoes. Her daughter said, "She likes your shoes." Mom kept pointing. I said thank you and told them I got them at Nordstrom Rack. But that stylish old lady kept staring at my pretty, shiny shoes. It warmed my heart to see her daughter care for her and bring her to have brunch on a Sunday. So sweet. <3

Later that day when I took these photos, it was in the low 60's, maybe high 50's. I started out cool and confident, then decided to add the scarf in my bag from earlier that morning because the "cold" was winning. Lol. It felt so good to be all bundled up. Classic Miami. Every winter I try to wear this cardigan and sweater, which I've had for maybe 4 years. The scarf is pretty old too. I love how comfy and cozy they feel. 

What do you think of me wearing this in 60 degree weather? My Miami sensibilities are not used to this temperature, ok?! Haha.

P.S. That was a real phone call. It was a happy moment so I documented it. :)

Shoesday Tuesday: Fun Heels

fun heels
I love a good heel. My mom saw me create this collection and she thought they were mostly all hideous, with the exception of the beige ones. I disagree, Mami, ok? These heels are LOUD (except the beige) and I like them that way. They are statement heels, perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans and simple top for a fun night out. So many tassels, too. I couldn't help myself. They've been having a moment for quite some time now and I'm nowhere near over it.
Do you like bold and funky heels, or do you like to keep it classic? I say both. ;)

January Recap

PicMonkey Collage

Well, I'm off to a good start in 2016 here! I met my 6 outfit per month goal-- a goal I've had since 2013 but so often miss since blogging is merely a hobby for me. I don't say that casually, though. This style blog is my creative outlet and very much a part of my self-care. Some therapists do yoga, some do art. This is my art. :)

And here are my favorite shots shared on Instagram. The chocolate con churros shot no podia faltar. Every January during one of our "strong" little cold fronts, I make sure to have some of that pure deliciousness-- that little piece of Spain-- from La Palma cafe on 8th st. and 60th ave. 

#EarnestyleSpent some time at my beautiful alma mater today. #umiami #richterlibrary #brunfelsia

I'm so glad I got to blog to my fullest potential (as restricted by crazy my job) this January! 
Thanks for reading!
