January Fashion Wish List

January 23, 2015   

As a true fashionista I have already began compiling my next wish list of wants only a few weeks after the holidays. I’m a big fan of mixing prints so it’s not a surprise that I was immediately drawn to this sweet striped shift dress and floral sneakers. The dress looks easy and stylish which are two musts for this mommy on the go. Together they create a perfect weekend uniform and the ideal outfit to welcome spring.

I love a patterned shoe that can add a pop of fun to any outfit and these slip-ons are just that. I have been coveting this J. Crew tote bag for weeks especially now that my little one is two years old and I’m ready to transition from my diaper bag to a tote bag. I like that this one is structured and stylish in a classic color. I would absolutely have it monogrammed for a preppy and vintage feel. This pretty necklace by Catbird gives it the perfect finishing touch. You can pick the shape, metal and message that you want. I adore jewelry with sentimental value like this beautiful necklace.

These items create a chic “go to” outfit that is classic and stylish, while still allowing you to chase your little ones. They are also items that you can mix and match within your wardrobe. Happy shopping!

WEAR IT FOR LESS: Jessica Alba Floral Blazer

January 21, 2015   

What is there not to love about floral prints? They're feminine, colorful, and look great with just about anything. I've been obsessed with them for quite some time.  I love how no matter the season, there is always a way to make these beautiful prints work.  Especially during the darker wintery months, they're a great way to liven up any outfit and get you thinking warmer thoughts.

Here we see Jessica Alba pulling off the trend effortlessly by pairing up this colorful topper and Nic + Zoe bottoms ($118).  She keeps the accessories sleek by adding white pumps and an Alice.D color-block leather clutch ($230). Interested in this look? Here's how you too can wear it for less.

VF's Closet: NYC

January 20, 2015   
Jacket: Michael Kors via Burling Coat Factory, Jeans: GUESS, Shoes: T.J. Maxx

We arrived in New York yesterday and will be staying until Wednesday before heading back to Miami. Here are a few pictures we took while visiting Washington Square Park. It was so cold (especially for a Miami girl like me) so I definitely packed on the layers. 

Underneath I wore a plaid button-down shirt, a sweater, a leather jacket and then this Michael Kors puffer jacket I bought at Burlington Coat Factory for just $99 bucks! I've never owned a puffer jacket before and was a bit worried it wouldn't keep me warm, but it has definitely proven me otherwise. 

I'll be sharing some more pics on Instagram, so be sure for follow along @vivafashion.

VF's Closet: School Drop-Off Style

January 16, 2015   
Our little guy recently started pre-school and as most of my moms out there might agree, trying to get your child ready for school, while attempting to make yourself look somewhat presentable (and not like you just rolled out of bed) can sometimes be challenging. So I thought I'd start a fun little series on the blog called School Drop-Off Style to show you what I wear to drop-off my son at school. 

As a work-at-home mom, it forces me to get out of my pajamas or work-out clothes and actually get dressed for the day. I've been learning to find a balance between putting together outfits that are still stylish, but appropriate and comfy as well. 

Here's the outfit I wore today for school drop-off, it includes my go-to shoes, slip-ons. Although I love heels, I find flats so much easier to put on while I'm running out the door. I paired them with grey skinny jeans, a classic white blouse (an easy outfit-maker), and a black leather jacket (it was actually chilly in Miami today). 

I didn't have time to do my hair this morning ha ha, so I went for a simple and easy side fish-tail braid. And voila! You have a simple outfit that works for school drop-off. I like to call it my "cool" mommy look. 

Let me know what you think of this series and if you'd like to see more.

Splurge vs Steal: Jaime Chung

January 14, 2015   

By Contributor Natalie Howell, You can check out her blog at OneSundayMorning.com

As a mom on the go, I'm always looking for outfits that are not going to complicate my life.  Particularly, clothes that allows me to move around with ease.  So in order to be prepared for what's in store each day, "comfortable" has to be an essential aspect of my weekday wardrobe. Despite what some may think, "comfortable" does not have to equal BLAH. In fact, "comfy" can be very stylish and on trend. Here, Jaime Chung is rocking a casual but chic look that anyone can pull off. Now depending on your budget, you can choose to splurge a bit by getting her exact pieces, or you can get her look at a steal of the price. My favorite part is that you can get her actual jacket by Elie Tahari for Kohl's for a fraction of the price since it's currently on sale.    

Where to Buy: Splurge
Loeffler Randall, Lou Pointed Toe Flat, $175
Lovers + Friends, Tatum Skirt black/white, $119

Where to Buy: Steal
Elie Tahari for DesigNation, Faux Suede cream Moto jacket, originally $130, (Sale) $65
Aaron Flats, Penny Loves Kenny, $26.59
Charlotte Russe, Textured Damask Print Skirt, $19.99
