Mercedes-Benz Swim Week: Tory Burch Resort Swim 2014 Preview + OOTD

Tory Burch - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim #MBFWSWIM

The Shore Club hotel's private cabanas were the perfect spot to host an intimate preview of the Tory Burch 2014 Resort Collection.  We were invited to enjoy mimosas and mini quiche, pool-side, and browse through some of the new Resort Swim collection.  This was an especially great way to start the morning because I got to (finally) meet Lexi of Glitter and Pearls and Alyson of The Average Girls Guide - in person!  I have followed their blogs from when I first started and they have both been so kind and helpful to me along the way.  It was a Happy day :)
Please scroll down to the bottom of this post to see shots of what I wore to this event. 
Thank you to Annie Weiss from Tory Burch for my invite.

Mercedes-Benz Swim Week: Beach Bunny Swimwear 2014

Mercedes-Benz Swim Week: Beach Bunny Swim #MBFWSwim

Beach Bunny Swim 2014 was a little Xena Warrior Princess, a little sassy and a lot sexy.  This collection was made super edgy by the use of extreme bikini designs, unusual textures, and varied accessories like grommets and geometric jewelry.  A touch of the 80's peaked through, every now and then too; we saw a hot pink visor make its way down the runway, as well as the use of vinyl side panels on some of the swimsuits.  My favorite looks included the gold lame one-piece with black latticework sides, and the multicolored romper.
Thank you to Beach Bunny for my invite!

Mercedes-Benz Swim Week: Agua Bendita and Poko Pano

Agua Bendita - Mercedes-Benz Swim Week #MBFWSwim

Agua Bendita not only featured all sorts of bikinis cut in entirely different styles, and one piece swim suits, but we also got to see great lounge wear pieces in relaxed fits. I really liked the use of pastels in this collection: pale blues, pinks and yellows all melded seamlessly   I am in love with the spikey hair barrettes that the models wore.
Thank you to Tara Ink for the invite to this great show. 

Hello, Angeles!

Poko Pano Swim 2014 featured fun, sky high heels, flowy beach pants, and adorable striped prints.  How cute is the look in the last photo with the retro high waisted shorts and striped bandeau top? Love.  Be sure to check out their website because you can already buy the looks from this show online!

Mercedez-Benz Swim Week Miami + Peroni Emerging Designer Series: Winner

The SLS hotel played host to the Peroni Emerging Designer fashion show last night.  A great time was had by all, despite the inclement Miami weather.  Photobooths always add to the fun at one of these things :)
My favorite designs of the night were by the talented winner of last year's show, Nathalie Kridao, who showed an amazing talent for playing with textures and patterns to make sophisticated and very wearable looks.

Mercedes Benz Swim Week, Miami + Escape Miami Style Lounge At the Sagamore Hotel

Mercedes Benz Swim week Miami begins this week!  I'm so excited to be attending the events and shows this year!  Very lucky to be a local in the city where everyone descends to be a part of the fashion fun.
This year we teamed up with Annie Vazquez of The Fashion Poet to collaborate with Sagamore Hotel on South beach as well as Peroni.  Our swim style photographs will be on display at Escape Miami, a Style Lounge at the Sagamore hotel on Saturday July 20th from noon until 5:00 PM.  The Sagamore event will be a place where you can get spa and beauty treatments, complimentary cocktails, light bites, and touch up your tan.  RSVP to Kreps de Maria PR & Marketing, here.

Some of the styles that I'm eager to try out during swim week are beach pants, jumpsuits, and these cutoffs that I just got.

Check out the official Swim Week schedule here and be sure to check back with the blog for more swim week updates!

OOTD: Neon Shorts + Adventure With Me by Furor Moda

I love this soft tee from Furor Moda.  This Adventure With Me t-shirt is one of their most popular styles.  Isn't it adorable? My boyfriend shrunk it in the dryer but I still love it...and him.
I paired it with my neon Gap boyfriend shorts for a Sunday date day in Midtown Miami.  The murals and graffiti art in this area are always evolving, and they make a great backdrop for photos, don't you think?
I highly recommend the shorts I'm wearing; they're so comfortable and versatile; a great option for hot summer days.  These also look great paired with a great baseball tee.

Part of my arm candy is this great pyramid cuff (Apex Cuff) by Bare Collection Jewelry that was a little difficult to photograph,but I assure you, it's awesome.  The quality really stands out; stay tuned for a minimalist outfit of the day featuring this cuff in the coming weeks.

Designer Spotlight: Citrine by The Stones 10 Year Anniversary

I popped into the Eberjay boutique on Miami Beach this weekend and met designer Michelle Stone, who, along side her sister, Joanne, forms the creative duo behind the well established, high end jewelry line Citrine By the Stones. I've loved these pieces ever since I spotted them on ShopBop long ago.
The line is made up of gorgeous, sturdy metals and unfinished, rough cut gem stones -very in line with my style.

The pieces are hand made, originating in Peru and being finished off in the US, much like the designer sisters who were born in Peru and raised in Miami.  Thank you to to Michelle Stone & Eberjay for allowing us to snap pictures of the collection.

Below are some of the photos I snapped
