Pink is trending! I have fell back in love with the color pink. My wardrobe is predominantly blacks, whites, greys and denim, but recently bloggers have inspired me to add pink to my closet. Some have even claimed pink is the new black, but nothing will ever beat black in my book.

Spring Outfit Idea

A classic leather jacket is the perfect transitional piece from winter to spring and spring to summer. A dress can also be worn year round and is a versatile piece, great for layering. This multi-colored maxi dress, can be a beach cover-up, a great brunch outfit or layered for colder days. I can’t wait to wear this dress on my upcoming trip to the Bahamas!

Secrets of a Shopaholic: How I never pay full price for anything!

I am a shopper, but I am also a bargain shopper and refuse to pay full price for an item of clothing. I would hate for you to also pay full price, when you can get that new top and treat yourself to lunch too! Here are my 3 hacks to saving money while shopping online.

  1. Shoptagr: A google chrome extension that allows you to save any item to a list and notifies you when the item is on sale, including coupons, low in stock or back in stock in the size and color you want.
  2. Honey: A google chrome extension, that will automatically apply coupon codes to your shopping cart.
  3. Student Discounts or Email Sign-ups: If you are enrolled in college or university I highly recommend signing up for UNIDAYS. Myunidays.com gives you access to basically every retailer that offers a student discount and allows you to save 10% or more every time you make a purchase. If you are no longer a student, an alternative to student discounts are signing up for a company’s newsletter, usually first time subscribers automatically receive a discount. If you have already signed up for that company’s newsletter create a new email to receive an additional discount for a future purchase.

OOTD: The Elevated Button-Down Shirt

SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

I LOVE that recently designers have created and updated the classic button-down shirt. They have added ruffles, cut-outs in odd places, oversized sleeves and the list continues. I was so happy to find this striped shirt with full sleeves at the previous Zara sale and for only $13. The shirt is very versatile and a piece I will own and wear in years to come. Today I wore the shirt backwards, and undid a few buttons to transform this shirt into a cool off-shoulder piece.

 

My blog story

Hello fellow fashionistas,

On and off over the past five years, I have been blogging on this website I created called, Florida Fashionista, it has been an outlook for me to express my personal style and opinions on various topics, ranging from fashion trends, music and books.

//The first outfit I posted on my blog, later used for my first Linkedin profile picture.//

I used to come home from school with an outfit idea in my head, ready to change and shoot. I would literally open the sliding doors to my porch, beg my brother to take my picture, pick that awful “looking-down” pose (which you can see in the photos above) and shot against a bland beige wall.

Then I disappeared. I still wanted to blog, but I lacked a photographer and I didn’t want to bother anyone. I was only comfortable with my brother as my photographer. Since I started college, if I did want to photograph an outfit, I would make a makeshift tripod for my IPhone in my dorm room. The self-timer feature on my phone would let me have a mini photoshoot in my room. If I liked the picture, I would post it on my Instagram.

If anything, I regret not coming back to this blog sooner. I think being a part of a fashion organization on campus for the last 3 years gave me the outlet I used to have. It’s now my last semester in my organization, but I still want to be part of the fashion world and I miss blogging.

Fashion is something I will always love and be passionate about. All the love to everyone who still follows this blog and enjoys the content, hopefully it can only get better from here forward.
