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!

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!

“What is one important thing our society needs? That would be harsher punishment for parole violators, Stan. Oh and World Peace!” -Gracie Lou Freebush (Miss Congeniality).

What’s a better topic to discuss than World Peace – with all this hatred/coming together going on all around the world. Well, it just so happens that I work at Peace Love Worldwhere we aim to spread peace, love, and happiness around the world.

This shirt expresses every word I’m about to say, feel, and think. Do we not live in 2014? Because for a sec, I feel like the 1940’s is slowly creeping up on us. Racism and killings, are you kidding me! We shouldn’t be fighting each other because of the color of our skin. Who cares if we’re blue, green, or polka dot!!! We should fight for one another. We are all brothers and sisters, regardless of our skin color, or ethnic background. Stand up for one another, it takes more energy to fight and argue than to leave in peace. Protect those you love and give a helping hand to the ones you don’t know. Prime example is the recent ALS ice bucket challenge – millions coming together to raise awareness for a disease not many people were familiar with. Now millions know and millions have donated to help those in need. Everyday a new story is broadcasted, about a new killing of a young man shot dead. Enough is enough, why are we murdering the kids that are our future!

Rather than holding onto this outfit and passage for a later post, I chose to do this post and style session now because it does mean a lot to me. Plus, what better way to express a world wide concern than with words and fashion! I paired this Peace Love World basic-go-to shirt with a black (very distressed) denim. Every time I wear them, I receive two totally different compliments! Either “Ohmygod, where did you get those pants? They are awesome!” or “Hey, did you fall or jump a fence and get caught!? (lol!!) I personally love distressed anything because I love the old, rugged, and tough persona it gives off. I didn’t want to give the impression of mourning something, so what better way than my go to floppy hat, and loud statement necklace.

This shirt has become very popular with big celebrities, and i mean big!!! Oprah Winfrey, Ricky Martin, Wyclef Jean, and of course, Alina Villasante (creator and visionary of Peace Love World). These are examples on how to spread awareness, all while looking fab. This shirt is more of a fashion statement like, “I’m a fashionista and my shirt means business buddy!” So go ahead and support a good cause – a portion of the proceeds from purchasing this shirt goes to The American Red Cross Foundation.

Remember: Our society needs WORLD PEACE! If you purchase the shirt #worldpeace. ♥
