Why I Love Dressy Shorts

Miami fashion blogger Stephanie Pernas wearing Soprano floral ruffle shorts and a camisole

I love dressy shorts! Especially if they’re ruffled and printed, I am sold. A great dressy short is just so effortless and polished, yet totally comfortable. They’re a great alternative to skirts. During the summer, they’re perfect with light camis or crop tops. Come fall, you can easily throw on a cardigan over the cami or pair with a chunky knit sweater as the temperatures cool down. Once winter hits, add a pair of tights and booties and you’re good…

Last Days of Summer

Miami fashion blogger Stephanie Pernas styles a ruffled off the shoulder swimsuit and jean shorts

September has absolutely flown by. I can hardly believe that this is the last week of summer! The past few weeks have slipped by in a blur of no power or wifi, packing, unpacking, flus, organizing, cleaning… while the damage from Hurricane Irma to our homes was minimal, it’s taken a long time to get back to normal. In that time, I’ve barely even remembered what day it is. I was sort of shocked when I checked the calendar today…

Getting Back to Normal

When it rains, it pours. After being knocked out in bed for a full week with the flu, I was so excited when I finally started to feel better and we headed to Bonita Springs for Labor Day weekend. I was psyched to a) be healthy and b) have the chance to float around a lazy river for a few days with my sisters. I couldn’t wait to get away and to wear pretty dresses again and to shoot some…

How to Get the Most Out of a Blogging Conference

  Happy Monday! Wow, it’s been awhile, huh? Did you miss me? I know I missed you! I got hit with the worst flu of all time last week and have been in bed since Tuesday of last week. NOT EVEN KIDDING! I’ve spent the last week half dead and there was basically no way I could get any work done. I’m still not 100% , but at least feel semi human today so wanted to get some fresh content…

22 Fall Outfits to Copy

Miami fashion blogger Stephanie Pernas of A Sparkle Factor shares 22 fall outfits to copy this year. Get fall outfit inspiration here.

Not going to lie, I’m sort of in disbelief that we’re already in mid-August. School is starting up, September is within sight and that means that Fall is almost here. Considering the fact that it’s currently in the 90s here in Miami, it’s hard to believe that Fall is anywhere NEAR soon… but it’s time to start planning outfits nonetheless. While I can’t necessarily fathom wearing a blanket scarf right now, I thought that maybe going through my archives and…

The Perfect T Shirt Dress

There’s just nothing like the ease and simplicity of a t shirt dress. T shirt dresses are my summer go-to for working from home, running errands, traveling, you name it. BUT, not every t shirt dress is created equal. While soft jersey is the most comfortable, they’re typically not the most flattering. When I spotted this AQUA t shirt dress at Bloomingdale’s, there were a ton of things I loved about it: the flutter sleeve, the teal color, and most…

Perhaps This is the Moment…

Charming Charlie Austin earrings

One of my best friends made me a beautiful hand lettered sign printed with a paraphrasing of one of my favorite Bible verses… “Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.” Esther 4:14. It sits on my desk and I look at it often. It’s a beautiful sign with a beautiful message. I’ve always taken it for granted that for me, there have been no huge, earth-changing battles to fight. To me, that phrase simply meant that I’m…

Jean Jacket + Navy Chiffon Dress

Last week I shared what I wore to the TBSCon opening night cocktail party and day 1 of workshops. Today, I’m sharing what I wore to day 2 for a full day of panels and a breakfast with Charming Charlie. When I was putting together outfits for the conference, I immediately gravitated towards the polished ease of dresses paired with jackets. The cool temps in Chicago put a slight crimp into my outfit plans, honestly, but then I saw that…

Under $100 Floral Dropwaist Dress in Chicago

Happy Friday! This week sort of flew by, didn’t it? Getting back into the swing of things after the conference was definitely both a challenge and exciting. I came back so refreshed and ready! When I outfit planned for Chicago, I knew that I wanted a pretty yet comfortable dress for the first day of the conference. I knew that we would be in workshops all day and wanted to be wearing something that wouldn’t be distracting or uncomfortable. This…

I was so excited to head to Chicago over the weekend for The Blog Societies’ 5th annual blogging conference! If you have no idea what a blogging conference is, it was a three-day conference of workshops and panel discussions about blogging and photography, networking with brands, and having an absolute blast with some of my fave blogger babes. I love blogging conferences, you always leave inspired and motivated to get back home and work on your blog. One of the things…
