Lookbook: Black Lace Dress

As I was perusing online for dresses for upcoming holiday parties and events, I stumbled upon this Alexis dress that I wore to my sister's rehearsal dinner back in October. The perfect black cocktail dress to have in your closet for a last-minute event and now that it is on super sale, I had to share. Over the past year, Alexis has become one of my favorite designers. The Miami-based designer, Alexis Barbara Isaias, is known for her beautiful use of lace and architectural silhouettes which give the feminine styles a little edge. Unfortunately, there aren't any photos of just me, so my husband is making a cameo on the blog today. ;)

Lookbook: Casual Chic Shorts

The part of summer has come where it is just too hot to wear jeans, especially in South Florida. I know I am not the only one who finds it difficult to find nice shorts that can take you from day to night . To be clear, I am not referring to cut-off denim!  I was so happy when I spotted these adorable paper-bag waist shorts at Intermix. They are perfect for running around with the kids during the day and polished enough for a casual dinner out with friends. They would even work with high heel sandals or wedges for a more dressed up look. For those who are looking, here are a few other styles that also fit the bill: Alexis high-waist lace shortsFrame le paperbag shortsALC loop-detail shorts, Rag & Bone lace-up denim shorts, and Club Monaco scalloped hem shortsxo

What to Wear: Summer Weddings // Beach

Summer wedding season is officially in full swing. In the upcoming weeks we will be posting edits on what to wear for the most common dress codes for summer weddings - from beach to cocktail and black tie - so keep checking back! 

For outdoor weddings, specifically on the beach, we love long breezy gowns in bright colors and prints. Although we are avid wearers of high heels, one must be mindful of practical footwear. This means pretty flat sandals (jeweled is always a chic option) or wedges. If the reception moves inside after the ceremony, you can always change into a pair of backup heels. For clutches, we like to invest in neutral styles that can be worn over and over again. As for jewelry, have a little fun!
