TWEED X DENIM
A GREAT FALL LOOK
Hi my loves! I hope your week is going wonderful. The weather in Miami has been crazy the last few days! We quickly go from hot and sunny, to gray with non-stop rain, but that’s okay as I’ve been mostly working and packing. Today’s look has tweed & skinny jeans, two of my favorite things! I love tweed jackets for multiple reasons, and one of them is how versatile they are. While tweed is often associated with classic & sophisticated looks, it can also be a modern it-girl staple. The key to wearing tweed is finding pieces with modern silhouettes like this fantastic textured jacket. I like the fluted sleeves, the raw-edged trim, and that it is fitted, not boxy. This jacket is so me! delicate, feminine and modern.

MOST LOVED TREND:
OFF SHOULDER TOPS
The off the shoulder trend is seen in various colors, forms and textures. And not only in tops, but also in dresses. A woman’s neckline is so beautiful – and this trend is perfect for highlighting our neck and shoulders. I have bought several this season, and this one has been grabbing the most attention. It is a casual, white plain top with a black trim. The sleeves on this top are incredible, and made for standing out! It’s a super fun trend, I love it!
Here are five similar tops from this brand, all under $ 20, in case the one I have sells out!!
What about you? Are you wearing off shoulder tops this season?

TO ADD A BELT OR NOT TO ADD A BELT
I love belts, countless times they have helped me have a ‘waist,’ and other times, they have given shape to my shapeless dresses. But because a belt can also make or break an outfit, it is better to style it properly. Characteristics such as the width, color, pattern, material, style, and length of the belt need to be considered when styling any casual or dressy ensemble. And as always, a person’s torso length, waist size and height will determine which belt accentuates their specific body shape the best.
YOUR BODY’S PROPORTIONS: Wide belts will shorten a long torso, and look best when added to long dresses. If you have a short torso, a wide belt will take up the majority of your torso, and shrink the distance between your chest and hips. So sticking to thinner belts is probably the best option.
SHIFT DRESSES: Whenever I find a shift dress that I love, like the one on today’s post, I always try a few thin belts on. This dress comes with its own belt, and I removed it to add a metallic copper one. Not only does it add a visual interest to the dress, it gives me the hourglass silhouette. I know that not adding the belt makes me look a bit shapeless – but I still enjoy the loose look, and wear it often. It really just depends on the look you want to wear!
MATCHING: You always have the option of matching your belt to your shoes, but you don’t have to. The bucket bag that I picked out for this look has a gold o-ring that goes well with the belt. Matching simply makes you look polished and put together.
Let’s see both ways below! 😉

This blog post was Sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included bralettes as compensation.
Every time I wear a bralette that shows a little, I receive messages regarding how pretty it looks with the outfit, or questions regarding where it is from … Honestly, I love to wear them for two reasons (1) their comfort (I prefer them over a bra), and (2) the visual aspect – if it has a little lace – I love it. Now during the summer, we are not wearing many layers so it is easier to show them off under our summer looks.
Today I will show you three ways to introduce bralettes into your summer looks. I have teamed up with Kohl’s who offers a huge selection of them! Keep reading to see my favorite ways of wearing the
