The whole “no white after labor day” rule does not exist in my closet, nor in Miami. The transition to fall hasn’t really struck when the temperatures still peak in the 90s mid day. White is an essential, fresh and elegant color that is easily paired with any pattern, texture and/or color. In the spring, I love pairing my little white dresses with a pop of color, but when it comes to fall I like to keep the look simple and chic (not salty today).
This past Sunday, I took my sisters and a friend out for a late lunch and coffee date. I have a new found obsession with quinoa and limonanas (frozen mint lemonades). I want to feel casual, comfortable and chic, so I paired a simple white pair of shorts and shirt with denim and nude, I love expressing myself through what I wear. It’s the best way to say something without actually saying it.
Always dress to kill.

I’m home after a beautiful, short weekend in the capital. It was my first time in Washington D.C. and it is absolutely wonderful. It’s crazy to think so many historical people and moments have walked and happened in these streets. I always enjoyed social studies classes. I loved learning about the decisions people made years ago and are currently making affect our daily lives and our future.
The city has its historical atmosphere, but remains contemporary and modern at the same time. The streets of Georgetown were filled with all these cute shops and coffee places. The food was delicious. I was so excited to finally get a Georgetown Cupcake from their original location in Georgetown, but each time I went the line wrapped around the corner. So, I opted for a vegan, chocolate cupcake from Baked and Wired, a local bakery (“Baked”) and coffee (“Wired”) shop.
I got to see the White House and touch it’s perfectly cut, green lawn. Let alone, I was feet and tons of security away from the Oval Office and Obama. The view of the Washington Monument from the Lincoln Memorial was breathtaking. The weather just made everything even more scenic.
I love September in the northeast. On a day like this, sunny and mid 70’s, the weather perfect for a light jacket and fall hats (which I’m obsessed with). This fall we are seeing a variety of felt hats in different colors and styles. These hats, similar to the one I’m wearing add a Parisian, chic touch to a casual day outfit. They pair perfectly with either pants or a flared skirt. They’re a simple add on to your outfits. I love to wear them with denim and/or leather; simple, edgy and/or elegant.
Traveling the States is always an adventure and I definitely plan on going back to D.C.

I’ve been working on this project for quite a while now and it’s finally coming to life! So here’s my little intro:
I was sitting at the Bloomingdale’s Cafe enjoying my Arnold Palmer and Fish and Chips (YUMMY) and the name just clicked. “Salty and Chic” describes my style and personality perfectly: classy with sass and edge.
Purpose & Mission of Blog
Sometimes the part of your day that should be the easiest, which is getting dressed, becomes the hardest. That’s where I come in. My purpose is to help women of all ages who try on their entire closets before settling with an outfit. I can help make their day easier by featuring the latest trends in different ways. I’ll show how to mix and match inexpensive pieces with high end pieces (which is what I mostly do everyday). The way you dress is a form of expression (cliche, but true) and impressions are very important, but so is confidence.

So dress to impress and KILL!
My love for fashion, travel and life. My family and close friends.
Thank you for the support and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing.
