Today’s look of the day is a really great work look. It’s really easy and comfortable, yet polished. The black and white is totally modern and I loved the idea of choosing a flat in a bright color for a pop of color. I decided to pair it with a tortoise statement necklace for a little touch of glam. I love this top! It’s such a great piece that can be paired with so many different things… super versatile!

In my  personal life, ‘boho chic’ isn’t really a style I tend to gravitate towards. If you asked me to describe my personal style, I would call it ‘girly glam with an edge’. But, that’s part of the fun of being a stylist!  Experimenting with different looks and trends is my favorite part of the job. For day 26, I decided to style the ‘Badu’ short with the ‘Nikkie’ bralette and make it a little bit boho by pairing it with a floppy hat. To elevate the look, I added a gorgeous pair of statement earrings. (Gotta keep the glam factor… Always!) Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: do you experiment with trends and looks?

When I moved from NYC to Miami, one of the hardest trends for me to leave behind was leather. Storing my moto jackets was absolutely heartbreaking. There have been times when I throw my sartorial caution to the wind and wear it anyway. (And when I do this, inevitably I hate myself as I sweat it out in 90 degree weather. And usually feel stupid. And like Ross in that episode of Friends… you know the one.) Luckily, warm weather leather is a THING and there are tons of great options for getting the leather look without the sweat factor. One such option is these awesome liquid leggings. They’re the perfect way to get the leather look sans suffering. When I styled the look for day 25, I wanted to do a sort of a fun, downtown vibe, while also being cognizant of the summer weather. I thought the perfect way to finish the look was with a cool loafer and a messy top knot. Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: what’s a trend you abandon during the summer?

Summer is all about brights. When the temps heat up, I find myself gravitating towards brights, whites and neons. This season, I’ve been all about cobalts, lime greens, and electric pinks. For day 24, I wanted to do a fun look that felt polished. I went for the amazing Blaire blazer, paired with the Jane tee and the Luna short. The Luna short is totally fab- it’s kind of tapestry-esque, and has a really cool tribal print on it. I’ve used the Jane tee a few times throughout the series, and really love it because of its asymmetrical hemline. I thought to finish the look, we’d keep it sleek with a pretty bun and go for a flat in lieu of a heel- keep it casual and add a dash of the unexpected! Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: do you wear brights? Would you wear them year round, or are you only comfortable going bold in the summer?

For day 22, I thought I would do two things: bring back a couple of my favorite pieces, and utilize one of my favorite styling tactics. You’ve heard me say over and over again how I love to pair together tailored, structured pieces with more feminine, girly pieces. For today’s look, I decided to bring back my FAVORITE lace tank (last seen here) and pair it with the Blaire short (last seen here). I decided to complete the look with a cage bootie and a pair of super glam earrings. Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: what’s your favorite styling tactic?

In the hot summer months, one piece dressing is really the ultimate in keeping it cool. As the temperatures rise, (especially in Miami!) I find myself gravitating towards effortless, easy silhouettes. When styling day 21, I went for this really easy romper that looks like a dress. (A silhouette that, frankly, I’m totally obsessed with right now!) Now, disclaimer: daisies aren’t usually MY personal style. But, I did really love this romper! Plus: daisies are truly having a moment and I would be remiss if I didn’t include them in a look! Shop the look  below and tell me in the comments: are you into daisy prints? Or should they stay in the ’90s?

Can you believe there are only 10 days in 31 Days of Threaded? This weekend has been kind of crazy; running around from one show to the other for Mercedes Benz Swim Week. It’s been a really great weekend, but being outside all day for the shows takes a LOT out of you! There’s a pretty vibrant fashion scene down here in Miami, but during Swim, it’s on a whole different level. While exhausting, I found the weekend to be inspirational and creatively refreshing. I loved spending time with some amazing fashion girls, checking out great new lines and reconnecting with old New York friends who are in town for the shows. Overall, I feel really inspired and great about some of the ideas and collabs that are in the works for ASF and can’t wait to share with you guys. So, on to day 20!

For day 20, I wanted to put together a look that was partly tough and partly sweet. I opted to pair the cool tribal print jacket from day 4 with a pair of girly orange shorts with lace detail. I really like the juxtaposition of hard and soft in this outfit. The jacket has so much going on, I decided to skip the jewelry and pair it with a cool ankle boot. Shop the look below and tell me what you think in the comments!

It’s officially Mercedes Benz Swim Week here in Miami, so in between presentations and events, wanted to make sure to post day 19! For day 19, I decided to bring back the cutout sleeveless blouse last seen on day 15 , with the awesome green pants from day 6 . I thought a quick, messy top knot, some sunnies and the Single Bloom necklace was a great way to pull this cute and easy look together. Shop the look below and tell me what you think in the comments!

31 Days of Threaded – Day 18: Neon Florals

Neon is one of those trends that scares some people. Especially in more conservative cities like DC, Chicago, etc., the idea of wearing fluorescents can seem a little frightening. In those cities, my advice is this: don’t be afraid, just be sure to incorporate it in a more subtle way. (Read: not head-to-toe neons.) Choose once accent piece to wear in a bright and keep the rest of your look neutral. That way, you can incorporate a pop of color, in an appropriate way.

In Miami, this is definitely not a problem. In fact, when you think of neons, you probably immediately think of Miami. There are times that I really REALLY sartorially miss New York. (Mainly, I miss layering, tights and my leather moto jacket. And all my faux furs… sigh.) But, there’s a definitely a silver lining! (Perma-summer, can always wear shorts and sandals, neons are always ok.)

For day 18, I chose to remix a couple of pieces we’ve seen in past days… yet again. This time, I decided to pair together the floral top from day 5 with the lime shorts last seen in day 9 . The mix is so girly and fun, I felt like I wanted to do a flirty little side braid and a sophisticated earring. The effect is really glam and easy! Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: how do you feel about neons?
