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

day 18 teaser

We’re in the middle of ’31 Days of Threaded’, a collaboration between A Sparkle Factor and Threaded, a Miami-based e-boutique that offers affordable and fashion forward looks for the chic and adventurous girl.

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?

When I styled the look for day 17, I was really inspired by the idea of a really cool city girl and what she would wear in the summer. I gravitated once again towards the tribal shorts from day 14, day 12, and day 7. (I know, I know, obsessed much?) I decided to pair it this time with the black version of the crop tee from day 3 and day 11. I loved the idea of styling it with a really cute ankle bootie, fedora and some layered necklaces. The look just felt cool and funky! Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: what do you think of this look?

Arguably one of the summer’s hottest trends, rocking a jumpsuit is the most easiest way to achieve that polished, effortless glam look we all crave. The cut of this jumpsuit can be a bit tricky- fashion tape is your friend! I love that the drapey quality of the back gives it a bit of sex appeal, while the cut of the neck keeps it tasteful.  A jumpsuit doesn’t really provide much of a styling challenge, so today’s post is really about the “extras” I incorporated. I decided to opt for a daytime look; because really… styling the jumpsuit for evening is so obvious.  So, I went with a cute fedora with side braid, a casual flip flop and a major statement earring to up the glam-factor. Want to take the look from day-to-night? Lose the hat,  do a smokey eye and swap your flip flops for a cage heel. Done. Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: how would you style a jumpsuit for daytime?

31 Days of Threaded- Day 15: Another Day, Another Way Floral Remix

DAY 15 TEASER

We’re in the middle of ’31 Days of Threaded’, a collaboration between A Sparkle Factor and Threaded, a Miami-based e-boutique that offers affordable and fashion forward looks for the chic and adventurous girl. I’ve styled 31 look so you can have your most stylish summer ever! Every day in July, we will be posting a Look of the Day, totally shoppable at Threaded Boutique.

We’re officially halfway through 31 Days of Threaded. Are you inspired yet? If you haven’t scoped out Threaded’s e-boutique… get on it. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we’ve gotten to the point in the series where I’ve decided to remix several of the pieces you may have already purchased. The point being- I want you to know how to get the most out of your new fashion find and feel confident incorporating it into your wardobe. (By the way, this is the type of thing that I do in my wardrobe remix service! I go with you into your closet and teach you how to build outfits out of what you own. Check it out.)

For day 15, I paired the shorts from day 13 and day 5 with the perforated top from day 7. The blouse is a bit edgier and the short a tad softer; the contrast of the two makes for a chic and pretty look. I loved the idea of incorporating the necklace for a little pop of color- and it’s kind of reminiscent of a bolo tie… but more glam. Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: now that we’re halfway through the series, what do you think so far?

Hope you had a great weekend! I had a lot of fun… Threaded popped up in Miami’s Wynwood area at the Wynwood Style Market, so I stopped by to say hi to Amber and see how it was going. I have absolutely loved collaborating with her and with Threaded Boutique… hope you guys have enjoyed it too!

For Day 14′s look, I decided to continue the remix trend and paired together the tribal print crop top from day 12 with the skort from day 10! As I said yesterday- the greatest pieces are the ones you can mix with others in your closet. What I love about the skort is that it’s super comfortable and a really easy piece to just throw on. The back of the little tribal top is really unexpected and sexy- I LOVE that! I’m a sucker for a great back, it just gives the outfit a little something extra. Right now, I’m loving the silhouette of a high-waist bottom with a crop top- it feels really current and modern, and believe it or not- it’s really super flattering. Shop the look below and tell me in the comments: what silhouette are you loving right now?
