Tuesday is looking pretty bright with today's outfit!  I teamed up with Nylon Mag, who now has their own online shop, to style these neon floral print high-waisted shorts.  I'm all for floral and all for high-waist bottoms, so the two combined was a win-win for me.  They're fun and a great statement piece for the summer.  The print actually reminds me of a painting.  I paired them with this hot pink crop top that I found at Cotton On for like $10.  As my friend says, "You had me at crop top." haha Can't get enough of them!  Since the outfit itself is super bright, I tried to keep a good balance with a neutral bag and shoes.  Speaking of these shoes, I have to say how surprised I am by how comfortable they are to walk in because the heel is really high.  A few people have asked me how I am able to wear heels so often.  The secret is to always bring a pair of flats in your bag!  As much as I love my heels, there is no way that I could walk in them for hours on end everyday.  The roll up flats are the best because they can fit in almost any size bag.

Hope your day is great!

Playful Colors

Outfit Details 

Top: Dynamite (here) / Skirt: Aeropostale (also love) / Shoes: Apt9 (here
Bag: Apt9 (here) / Earrings: LMae (here) / Sunglasses: Apt 9 (here)

It looks like it's going to be a colorful week here on the blog!  With July coming to a close, I really want to take advantage of these last weeks of summer.  I am definitely going to miss this weather, but I am also looking forward to fall fashion.

 It's difficult for the camera to pick up on neon, so this top isn't showing it's true color in these photos.  I got it on clearance for only $10 before my Miami trip.  I love simple solid colored tops like this since they are perfect for pairing with printed pieces. Speaking of printed pieces, how cute is this skater skirt? I just can't seem to get enough of them.  They are so girly & fun for summer.   I decided to pair this outfit with these chunky heeled sandals that I got at Kohls a few weeks ago.  They're a great daytime shoe if you're looking for some height, but don't want a thin heel.  I decided to finish off the look with a high ponytail to keep it playful.

Aeropostale just launched a new campaign called AERO NOW.  In celebration they are having an in-store event today at 4pm to reveal the new collection and you will receive 30% off any single item in stores and online with promotion code THIRTY.  :)

Hope you all have a Happy Monday!

Miami Swim Week Diary

Here's my swim week recap! :) I just wanted to get it all in one post with a mix of photos & instagrams, so this is going to be a long one!

Day 1

I stayed at the Loews hotel on Collins Ave.  This was my second time there and it's definitely one of my favorite hotels in South Beach.  I was only a couple of blocks away from everything, which was perfect. The first day after checking in I grabbed some lunch, stopped by the Escape Miami party for a few and went to the Convention Center to check out some of WET Swimwear's new collection.

Airport selfie, of course. 

I wore this cute two piece set from H&M and these chunky heeled sandals from Apt 9. 

WET's new collection consisted of some faux leather/denim pieces.  Sexay!

After that I went back to the hotel for a quick change and headed to the LSpace & Mara Hoffman shows.  I wasn't able to get any good images myself at LSpace so below are a few from getty images.  

I loved the sleek & sexy wet hairstyle that all of the models had.  LSpace teamed up with Jonathan Product Hydracurls to achieve this look.  

I scored this matching set at the Zara sale!  It was the last pair of shorts too.  This jacket was one size up but I had to have it.  - Shot by Ryan Chua 

I'm proud of myself because I actually took these shots myself at Mara Hoffman.  I have no idea how I did it because I got the lighting to be perfect.  This will probably never happen again lol

Such a great show!

Day 2

Sunday started off with a fun brunch at the SLS Hotel with TRESemme.   They did a braid in my hair that lasted all day and saved me from the humidity.  I need to learn how to do this on myself. 

I wore a dress from Forever21 & Sandals from Apt 9. - Shot by Ryan Chua 

After the brunch it was time for WET's pool party at The Delano!  I had a blast with all the girls. 

With my babe Daniela 

Changed into this printed romper from Forever21 and Zara shoes that I scored on Poshmark for dinner & the 6 Shore Road show. 

Loved all the cutouts & fun prints!

Day 3

I had breakfast on the balcony, then laid out by the pool and went to the beach.  A fun day in the sun.  If only I was able to do this here in Jersey. 

My Monica Gellar hair lol

I changed into this black romper from Forever21 and these fab Prima Donna heels for my last night.  

Day 4

My last day :( After check out, I went to Lincoln Road for lunch and then straight to the airport.  Boo! 

& that's a wrap on my Miami trip!  Sorry for the photo overload.  Hope you enjoyed the post!
Happy Weekend. <3
