Something important in my style is the accept practicality in matching the outfit to the situation and this one was definitely one of those in so many different ways. I think my important swim week rule was to wear as little clothing as possible–it gets hot! It was 80 degrees on the first night. Miami weather is very unstable so the the 3rd day was much cooler, but still warranted a crop and a mini skirt.

By the third day, my feet really wanted some flat shoes and these are the next best thing. I could wear these shoes for most (not all–let’s be frank) any day and be fine. And then of course I can’t pass out cool little details like the clear straps. Clear/lucite trend: I still love you.

And lets not skip over this bag. I’ve got this black one, and also an identical red one, that I currently live in. When you need to stow away lipstick and cameras and pamphlets and x, y, z, a little backpack is perfect. Effective, functional, and still cute. But I think I’m a bit biased to them–my dream Chanel bag is a quilted backpack.

What I can’t tell you about is what was so cool over to my left side that day. Not sure why I favored the left in my photos–hah!

Here is what I wore on my second day out for MBFW Swim! I picked these pants up from Zara’s sale because really, I need lots of work clothes that are also my style and I couldn’t think of a better fit. I love the silver details as most my clothes with hardware have gold details. I also paired it with this long overdue Nasty Gal crop top. It’s super simple and as usual, has back details that are hardwired into my style.

As for shoes, these were a bit of an improvisation since my shoes were late in the mail. I paired them with my trust Dolce Vita pumps with the most perfect pump silhouette ever. And not to mention they’re in my favorite shade of green! I completely forgot about how shows in the Oasis tent had a runway over sand, so I was sinking all night. I need to remember that for next year.

More outfits and other posts coming! :)

What a crazy week this has been. I don’t even know where to begin. I guess what I’m doing here is starting with an outfit post, just so I can get an extra day or two to organize all these posts coming up.

Here is what I wore on the night of the MBFW Swim kick-off party. It was a night time event that I’d be heading to after work so I changed tops and that was that. I knew the day time events would be way too hot so I decided to save pants for evening events. Let me tell you, Miami is still sweltering at night time. Hahaha. I got this top from Zara’s sale (I spent way too much time / money in Zara this past week, ahhhh. Three trips in 5 days was too much.) Anyway, the top is perfect because the open back is so elegant with a silver buckle around the neck. I wish I got better photos of the back! Oops.

These Nasty Gal shoes are a favorite, too. Love their Shoe Cult line. I actually bought these for $26 a little while ago before they went back up in price. And they’re real leather!! So good.

Outfits and show recaps to come! Can’t wait to share with you all. Also, check out some previews and recaps I posted on Instagram!
