Boohoo #TBT Style Icon: Audrey Inspired

Everyone bases their style on someone, right? Sure, I love my geekery, but the basis for the way I style those geeky outfits, makeup, accessories and hair comes from the most perfect lady in the history of ladies: Audrey Hepburn. I like high waists, form flattering silhouettes and classics paired with tons of personality. I like high buns, cat eyed sunglasses and strong brows. But most importantly, I like the heart and soul behind the icon that was Audrey Hepburn, and hope I can portray even 1/4 of that with my own style and life.

That’s why when Boohoo asked me to recreate a style icon’s look using a dress from their immensely awesome dress line, I jumped at the chance. I think I chose the perfect dress that reflected what Audrey’s style would look like today, paired with a little Melificent on the side. The result? A whimsical shift dress paired with fun and kitschy accessories, and topped with Audrey’s iconic top knot (thanks Blo Coral Gables!). Plus, you know I had to throw a little geek in there – check out my denim jacket’s button details! ;)

What I Wore: Magical Chic

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I went on a romantical trip with my lovey to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter this past weekend. It was initially going to be Valentine’s Day weekend, but that was until we found it was a long weekend for kiddos: NOPE! We were graced with amazing weather (well, until our last day) and small crowds, making the parks a complete joy to maneuver. We did some serious shopping (look out for my next outfit posts), and just enjoyed each other…and the geekiness all around us. There’s just something geniunely magical about this place. After 4 consecutive days in the parks, I just didn’t want to leave. Now that we have annual passes, it looks like I won’t have to leave for long! Until next month!

With that said, I wanted to make sure I was comfy but still looking the part. This is where my love of leggings begins. They are just so easy, light and versatile. Just make sure to follow one tip: always make sure you are wearing a tunic top. At the end of the day, leggings are NOT pants. Please don’t wear them as such.

What I Wore: Ugly Christmas Sweater

I hope all of you had a great Christmas! The end of the year is upon us, and I am so happy to see it go. It has been a year of very high high’s and very low low’s. It often felt like I was riding a roller coaster that kept twisting, turning and dropping despite my requests to get off. But I stayed steadfast and here I am. For that, I am proud. I am trying to close this chapter of my life and start fresh in 2015, along with everyone else. This new year has a lot of promise so I am excited to see what paths it leads me down.

With that said, you can’t close out the year without rocking an ugly sweater at some point. It has become quite the trend, but surprisingly this was the first time I participated. I knew I had to find the right geeky kind of ugly, and was immediately drawn to this great Avengers one! It’s no secret I’m a Marvel girl, so I had to have it. I got a lot of compliments on social media for it, so I figured I would do a fun post featuring it and giving you all the chance to snag your own!

What I Wore: Groving

I love me a good Sunday Funday. I’ve been traveling for what seems like ages, but now that I finally have my feet planted back on the ground of my home city, I took advantage by doing what I love to do best: strolling around one of my favorite neighborhoods. Coconut Grove used to be all the rage while I was growing up, but I feel like it is kind of having another renaissance. I see it now as a more laid back alternative to the crazy beach crowd and hipster Wynwood scene. It has a very hippy kind of vibe, which makes me happy on gorgeous days like these in Miami.

Local readers: what’s your favorite neighborhood in Miami?

What I Wore: San Francisco

For those of you that don’t know, my laptop was stolen (along with my husband’s) while we were on vacation last week. It was not a good way to start our trip in San Francisco, and unfortunately, these photos were taken as our car was being smashed and grabbed. However, we tried to make the best out of it and rolled with the punches. I have a new Macbook Air and am ready to blog, blog, blog again!

In case you can’t tell, San Francisco is just a bit windy, especially from the top of Twin Peaks, which is where these photos were taken. Thankfully I wore the right outfit to brave it – you can never go wrong with a tucked in blouse and skinnies! I was actually proud of myself for putting together this outfit as I usually don’t go so dark and basic, but I loved the result. I also think the pop of red on my lips paired with my red shades really pulled the look together and gave it that extra omph.
