I loved the simplicity of this look. It was actually reposted several times by pages I follow for daily inspiration and then was drawn by several different fashion illustrators.

IMG_0323IMG_2725I somewhat felt like I let out my inner New Yorker. I remember the weather was so perfect that week! I really wish it wasn’t so hot in Miami so I could wear trenches more often.

IMG_2791I just love this sweater!! IMG_9617I got to meet and interview Custo Dalmau about the opening of his new location and latest collection. He’s beyond creative and such a genuine person.IMG_2862IMG_2927You can never go wrong with ripped denim and a blazer for a casual lunch or dinner with THE best company. IMG_1359Thank you once again to Lacoste for inviting me to the Miami Open 2015 women’s finals where Serena Williams won!IMG_1318

I did not take off my Stan Smiths and that blush trench. IMG_3138IMG_1142IMG_3676Simply because I felt like a princess..

Finals Survival

The stress is killing me and the countdown to winter break feels eternal! Here are 5 easy tips to survive finals week!

1. Hydrate! Drink lots of water because dehydration will decrease exam performance (according to this study). Even bring your own bottle with fruit infused water. Shop the bottle above here!

2. Headphones! Record yourself reciting some of your notes and replay them throughout the day of the exam or in the car ride/walk to it! Shop the headphones above here.

3. Exam Attire! During exams, my appearance is not up to par. I love to be comfortable and wear hats to hide my horrendous eye bags and stressed face. Shop the James Perse hat above here.

4. Supplies! Pack your calculator, pens, pencils, highlighters the night before the exam to ensure you aren’t forgetting anything! I love this Swarovski pen!

5. Snacks! Pack some easy, healthy snacks for those long hours in the library. A yummy granola bar and apple should do the trick!

Now finish studying and kill it!
