Sweater dresses seem to be quite the rage right now. And I can honestly say, I've literally been living in this one. I mean, what's not to love? They still give you the feminine feel of a dress, just a lot more softer and warmer. I love to pair them with over the knee boots or like I did here, with ankle boots. This color is perfect for fall, I have to say, those beautiful colors are what I like most about this season. Don't I blend in perfectly with the backgroud? (in a good way though :P)

Fall is a great season to take my collection of coats for a spin. I recently cleaned up in my closet and I found a few gems I have neglected for too long. I am a sucker for animal prints, leopard- and snakeskin prints being my fave among them. So obviously, this coat had to come out and play :)

It's mac (trench) season, a time where the sun will still occasionally show herself and it's not too cold yet. If there's a brand that knows their macs, it has to be ELVI. Remember their all lace trench? And how about this one, a satin burgundy version (on sale now too!). I actually own three of their trench coats and I can't wait to add more (I mean did you see their metallic trench? omg). To compliment the coat and in true ELVI fashion -I noticed they love snake prints- I had to add these shoes to the mix.
The bag I got as a goody bag at an event, but I liked the way it looked with the coat. It's from a company that recycles clothes and makes other products out of them. Environmental chic!

When I think of my trip to New York last summer, a lot of good memories come to mind. A lot of good clothes too. I actually had to book an extra suitcase for the flight back :) This dress was among one of my finds. I brought a visit to the Monif C. showroom and tried it on, I wore it the whole time I was there, it was tooo good to take off! The steel blue/grey color, the fit, the model of the dress are all so me. The shoes, ohhhh the shoes! " Sparkle" should have been my middle name. I stumbled upon these at a mall in Miami. My sister saw the hearts in my eyes and decided to gift them to me as a belated birthday present. Yay for sisterly love! :)

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably would have seen that I took a break due to the loss of my grandfather, whom I loved dearly. Although it's better this way for him (as he was very sick), losing someone you hold close is something you will never get used to. The void, the memories. I want to thank all of you for the well wishes, they meant a lot to me.
My grandfather was always so supportive and loved what I did with my blog. His first comments after greeting me were always about my outfits and how he loved my look. There was this instance where he was there when I took some blog pics and he even instructed me on how to pose for my pictures, something I now consider a precious memory. I am eternally grateful that both my husband and especially my daughter got to know him so well, as they never had that chance with my grandmother. Alas, losing loved ones is a part of life, and to be honest, the part I fear most. And as crazy as it sounds, life does go on. It has to. I'm trying to get back into my "happy place" and that definitely involves fashion! To make it a little more fun, this skirt gives all the happy feels a girl could ever need. And I'm sure he would have loved this too!
