That’s it peeps!! This is officially my last summer post; hence, the title. I went with an all white look since Labor day already passed haha. What saying or rule has ever stopped anyone from wearing what they wanna wear, anyway? This top is my new obsession … like for real, for real, it’s perfect in so many ways. Not only can I wear it again with a skirt but I can pair it with jeans and denim shorts. Come on people, what more can you ask for from a top?! I recently wore this top to brunch with my bestie and got caught up on her Euro trip. I went with this Ella top from Peace Love World. The top is truly amazing and to give a little bit more information for the ladies – I don’t have to wear a bra! Sorry but for those of you who know me know I’m recently obsessed with not wearing bras – yuck gross! Just the word “bra” kills me!

I went with a white mini skirt because I wanted to show the dressier side to this top. I purchased the skirt in Marshalls, and by the way people, this is my store. I know you ladies hate looking through those racks but trust me, it pays off when you come out paying $10 for a skirt that another store is selling for triple the price. I wanted to keep it neutral and classy so I stuck to nude Steve Madden heels. Omg, you would think Steve Madden pays me for advertising his shoes so much but they don’t trust me!! I just find them so comfy and so effing cute, my god! I added a rose gold envelope clutch from Rack to Closet which is so fabulous and fits everything and of course with anything white, I like to layer on necklaces and see how long it takes me to get annoyed by them choking me by the end of the night. I just find layering necklaces really gives a outfit that extra “humf” and touch. Now, farewell summer you were awesome to me but way too hot! I’m ready for it to cool down so I can start layering and wearing all my olives and fall colors.

So, the summer is winding down people! It ends September 22 and that means less colorful, tropical prints and more olives and burgundies. To start my good-byes to the summer apparel, I’ve decided to go a bit crazy and show you the wacky side to me. Now, when people usually look at prints like these, they stray away … very far away (lol) but that’s the total opposite for me. I usually like to challenge myself and think: “Can I wear that? How can I wear that and where?” Then I think: “Well, yes I can wear them because I’m Cristina!” If you have a bold piece in your wardrobe – make sure to pair it with something basic and I don’t need a special occasion to wear these shorts. I live in Miami, the city of the wacky-tacky tourist!

I wore these shorts because I think there is no other better way to experiment with an outfit (since I just so happen to work in the fashion industry and receive real opinions). I went with a plain-white Logan top from Peace Love World (its on sale!!). The top can be worn so many ways like with jeans, shorts, and even leggings because of the length in the back and how it covers the bottay. I added a denim jacket because I like the contrast of the coral-orange with the white. For the shoes: I went with as, my brother likes to call them, my “Jesus sandals” (lol) not nice Chris!! But they are just so comfy and I truly wear them with everything – the color goes with everything so you can’t blame me, can you?

Something I think it makes this outfit that much better is my hair style! I don’t usually talk about hairstyle but when I asked Jessica, my photographer, if I should put it half up-half down, she didn’t even hesitate to say “omg, yes that would be so cute!!” and thank god I did because the crazy hair did it for us. If you follow me on Snapchat (cristinags) you’ll see my hair like this all the time mainly due to the heat and humidity in Miami and because it’s cute.

So, as the summer fades and the fall quickly approaches, take advantage and go ahead … pull out all those funky prints and bold colors and put them to good use before you have to wait for summer all over again! There will be one more summer post after this one and then begins those Fall posts that I’ve been counting down for!

Happy Labor day weekend peeps! Another holiday we get to spend celebrating in a bikini or wearing a cute outfit while on vacation or hanging out by the beach. For the ladies who don’t want to show as much skin but still want to look cute and enjoy the day celebrating, I usually go for a crochet slip or something flowly and fairly easy to take on and off on top of my bathing suit. I went with this purple ombre dress which is beyond gorgeous! From the colors to the crochet top. So basically your getting the best of both worlds (lol). Not to mention the dress was just $19.99 at Marshalls duhhh, I was season shopping for fall and came across this dress and just had to have it, just look at it, I just couldn’t put it down. For the ladies that like to bare it all in that itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny bikini, please, by all means, do so in this colorful Victoria Secret swimsuit. I’m so in love with this bathing suit not only because is it flattering to all my assets but it’s so comfy and is never riding up and the top is never flying off either, hard to believe I know with these puppies. Make sure to stay safe and drink responsibly!! But most importantly, I like to go by my motto: Have fun and look cute while doing it!!! Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Very in this Spring and Summer has been the denim overalls and romper trend. Not just saying it because it’s one of my go-to looks, and because it just so happens to be the easiest outfit for me to put together. Not every shade of denim can be paired together to make a Texas tuxedo, it takes the right shades of denim to make it work and work right. So when I came across this denim romper in Marshalls, the image that popped into my head was the show “That’s 70 Show” something Mila Kunis would wear back then (lol). This trend is very in and I believe it’s going to stick around just like the birks, and wide leg pants have! I went for this outfit because it’s so Miami-summer appropriate not to mention it can totally be transitioned into fall, as well. I went with nude lace up heels to dress it up and give it more of a modern yet old feel. Threw on a floppy hat because it called for the occasion and my huge purse and called it a day. This is a look I would totally rock, it’s very groovy and so me (haha).

Summer style, to me, is basically dressing in summer dresses and shorts. It pains me to even have to put on jeans in this horrific heat. This off the shoulder dress is the perfect print, and the style can be worn with sandals and a belt around the waist for a lunch date. I recently wore it (Instagram) for my momma dukes b-day dinner. I love that it’s off the shoulder because it gives it that sexy yet elegant look. For sure this LA Hearts dress stole my heart and the floral pattern was just the icing on the cake. For the shoes, I went neutral with nude wedges to keep the focus all on the dress and of course, this fabulous fringe clutch from Steve Madden. I was iffy mixing the clutch with the dress but again I took the risk and I’m sorry but I did a damn good job! (lol) Hopefully this helps you ladies pull the perfect summer look.

Okay so what can I say, this chick is so ready for her Sundays and Monday nights to go back to normal. Not only am I a fashion blogger but I just so happen to be obsessed with football and especially with the Chicago Bears!!! Since football season is back – what better way to welcome it back other than with fashion (besides the wings and beers lmao!) There is nothing worse than shopping for game day pieces and all you find are jerseys with no shape, team tees in pink, and tees with sparkles. Like come on, get real. Not every girl wears pink, and not every girl wears sparkles … especially for football apparel. I’m extremely picky when it comes to game day gear. I like team tees that I can wear with a variety of options like jeans, shorts, and sneakers. I prefer a jersey but to me, team-logo tees last longer because I can wear them year round even when football season is on hiatus.

On to the sports fashion part of the segment! I’m usually not one of those girls that goes to any sporting events with heels and all dolled up like ever, so not me! That’s more of a “WAGS” style not mine but since this is a blog, I kind of have to show the dressier side to attending a game and the casual side as well. I paired this Chicago Bears v-neck with high wasted shorts because for me to wear jeans or white pants would just not be real of me tbh. I’ve given you two options for your shoes – I know there are women out there that enjoy wearing heels or wedges because they like it so I put on my most comfiest wedges I own to give you an example of how it’ll look. My personal preference is usually sneakers and obviously, has to be team colors so blue converses it is. If it so happens to rain, I usually take a bears jacket for back up so if your team tee gets covered by your jacket – your still repping your team. Happy football season, and bear down!!

Happy 1st Birthday Mimosa and Pumps!!!

I can’t believe that it’s been one year since I started this incredible journey! Happy birthday to my baby, my pride, and joy. I’m over the moon and very proud of myself for putting on my big girl panties and deciding to start this fashion blog! It hasn’t been easy but it’s been worth every single step. I’m so happy I’ve been able to collaborate with such amazing people like AlectricVisuals and attend so many events, and was even asked to be a special guest blogger for the first time at the Fashom event I attended.

Now on to all the mushy-gushy stuff (I feel like I’m receiving an award! lol), I want to thank everyone – especially my friends and family who have pushed me and told me to follow my heart and dreams and never give up because I belong in this blogger world. I want to thank my mom and brother who put up with my annoying a**! and all my questions: “Does this outfit go with these shoes?” “Does this outfit look good together?” (lmao) 😀 To the most important person, the one I owe the biggest thank you to, is Jessica Rivas. The lady behind the lens, without her my blog would not be here and wouldn’t have the most amazing pictures it has today. I would be so lost without you and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you do for me and this blog. I love you and appreciate you so much. To all my love bugs (my followers), my blog would not be as successful as it is without you – thank you all for your constant support, means so much to me, I love you all!!!

On to the fashion portion, my specialty! I wanted to do a completely different look than what I usually go for. I wanted to choose a fancy, classy yet fabulous outfit. I went with this navy blue midi-skirt from Agaci which I instantly fell in love with. I was iffy because of the length and puffiness but the hell with it! My height isn’t going to stop me from wearing this gorgeous piece. For the top: I was debating on this top or a similar one in white lace and decided to stick with this one because I wanted the focus to remain on the skirt and shoes. These shoes are to die for … right? lol I wanted something more appropriate because of the fanciness of the skirt and since I didn’t have much color on, I went with a pop of color on the shoes. The jewelry i went for a very minimal touch because I was focused on the cup of mimosa (duh, it is my blog name) and of course, had to do the balloons and confetti – it’s a party!! Thanks again to everyone that has showed support and so much love, I appreciate it and can’t wait to continue to grow and collaborate on this catwalk.

This was the second look that AlectricVisuals asked me to put together, and something I probably would wear on a daily if I ran out of jeans and t-shirts forever. I went for this urban look instead of jeans because, like I said in the previous post “I‘m with the band,” it’s way to hot for jeans right now. This dress is honestly my LBD (Little Black Dress) for going out; to dress it down I just threw on a camo long sleeve shirt around my waist again, and called it a day! Now I was stuck on whether to wear booties or converse and went with my gut feeling and stuck with converse and I’m so happy I did because the white makes the outfit stand out that much more, and gives it that street style. On to accessories. I live by hats, and I mean if I can own every floppy color hat in the world I would. To make the outfit a little less dressed down I added this floppy hat, and love the pattern contrast between the hat and the camo patterns. Now, I know this is a risk -but hello do you know who I am, Cristina the risk taker- I’ve been dying to share my bag that I got back in December for Christmas from my lovely mother, it’s a MK messenger bag, and it’s so perfect: the colors of the camo aren’t to dark or to bright and its just the right size to fit all your necessities. I hope most you can relate to this outfit because God knows I can (lol). Stay tuned for more, and make sure to follow me on all my social media accounts!!!

DSC07349 DSC07374 DSC07379 DSC07324 I know this isn’t the outfit you envision when stepping out of your home, and into this 90 degree Miami weather but like they say, “beauty is pain”. When AlectricVisuals reached out to me and said she wanted to do a summertime urban look, I knew just the outfits to pull together. So, obviously you can’t go out anywhere with jeans on, so shorts are all you’ll be seeing this summer, I guarantee you. I just didn’t want to throw on a graphic tee- that’s just not me- unless I’m dressing it up, and since this was a more urban casual look, I went with a faux black vest, and a plaid shirt tied around my waist. Now if any one knows me, you know I’m obsessed with tying any long sleeve around my waist and calling it a day, it’s my current obsession. Now I only wore this beanie because it matched the whole look but I don’t recommend wearing a beanie now, because not only will you mess up your perfect hair that you worked on all morning for, but also I’m assuming your head will probably catch on fire because of the oven we are currently living in (lol). If you want to wear something on your head go for a baseball cap, not a beanie. And, also, add some accessories and your set to hit up Wynwood and go bar hopping with this look.

This top is from the new summer collection of Peace Love World and it’s to die for. Alina Villasante and the design team did an awesome job with this Ann pullover top, it can be worn so many ways with shorts and wedges or how I paired it above. My favorite part of the shirt has to be the sleeves which feature a textured knit pattern from shoulder to cuff. Also, the two gold zippers add that cool effect – you can also lift the zippers as high as you want or as low as you want. Yes, the shirt is white and arms are a off-white giving it that unique look because everyone knows Peace Love World loves making unique yet fashionable pieces. I paired this top with Free People bf jeans which I live in (lol). I decided to dress up the look and add these fabulous shoes from Justfab.com which are so comfy and affordable!!! For accessories, I went with gold layering necklaces and the double pearl choker because layering a bunch of necklaces is so in and I believe, pulls a look together. Don’t let this heat in Miami prevent you from dressing up, I usually wear this top on days I know I’m going to spend my entire time in an air conditioned building, or even to dinner (inside of course). Hopefully you girls take a risk and buy the shirt because once you buy it, it’s love at first sight!
