It’s crazy how times flies and the saying: everything happens “in the blink of an eye” is so true. It’s been 2 years that I’ve been in this blogging world and even though it’s not what I envisioned because I wish I could post more often, it’s still something I take pride in and love to do. I’m always saying that I am going to be more consistent with my posts but unfortunately, we live in a world that can get unpredictable – anyway, shut up Cristina! Onto the fashion, please (lol).

“Summer Summer Summer time” Summer is unbearable in Miami, I feel like this year has been brutal … it feels like you’re a melting popsicle that has been left outside in the hot sun. This anniversary I didn’t fancy it up like I did for my first year anni. I went for a very summery look – a loose denim off-the-shoulder dress. This cute little denim dress is light and breathable for being denim material yet if you’re looking for a tighter piece, this dress also comes in a more fitting style. Another item that has resurfaced after being gone for years are choker necklaces. I remember being little and wearing the black plastic ones everywhere and now they are back in style!

I have been looking for the perfect choker necklace and hadn’t really come across any that I fell in love with. I was in Hobby Lobby and decided to roam around the store and ended up in an isle that had every color suede cord and the light bulb in my head turned on to make my own necklaces. So I bought the same color cord as my shoes and made a choker – it worked out great. Onto my fav part of the outfit: my shoes! These heels are so comfortable because they have a chunky heel and the caged look is fitting on your foot. I hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully, I can continue blogging more outfits to keep doing what I love. Happy 2nd Birthday, Mimosa and Pumps!!!!!!!!!

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 1st Birthday Mimosa and Pumps!!!

Photography: Jessica Rivas

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.

When you think of spring and the fashion essentials that are needed … what comes to my mind is rompers! Rompers for fashion bloggers are probably one of the easiest pieces of clothing to own. Rompers make life 1000 x easier because you don’t have to pull together a outfit from scratch. All it takes is some accessories, the right shoes and your ready to go. I wore this romper to the first ever Coral Gables Fashion Week (check it out on my Instagram @mimosaandpumps) – the colors are just right for spring, a pale pink with purple flowers. I added nude lace up heels, paired it with a nude bracelet, and the infamous purple bag that I posted for my (Fall in line) post too, which screamed my name when I walked in to the store! Had to buy it! 20150507-RIV_343220150507-RIV_3438 20150507-RIV_3444 20150507-RIV_3445 20150507-RIV_3450 20150507-RIV_3464 20150507-RIV_3467 20150507-RIV_3471 20150507-RIV_3472 20150507-RIV_3473 20150507-RIV_3504 20150507-RIV_3560 20150507-RIV_3576 20150507-RIV_3616 20150507-RIV_3618 What are your spring essentials?

Coachella Fashion

Oh Coachella, Coachella … how I wish I was attending this year! Not only have I missed weekend #1, I’m now missing weekend #2 too but no worries, promise that next year this bug will be attending!!! Any who, onto the mean style games that these fierce Coachella/Festival chicks pull out – Coachella is pretty much King when it comes to “Festival Fashion” so why not look your best?20150413-RIV_0728

Just because I didn’t attend Coachella this year doesn’t mean I didn’t make my own Coachella while shooting these looks. I brought a speaker to the shooting site and started jamming to Tove-Lo on Pandora the entire time. Jessica Rivas, my photographer, loves when I become playful because it makes for better pictures so I did just that lol. When you think of Coachella, you think of: lace, crochet, fringe, chunky jewelry, killer sunnies, crop tops, and shorts.

I went with an all black look for this years day #1, black overall shorts and the best part about these overalls are the bottom! They have lace trimming ahhhhhhh. I paired them with a black crop top and a crochet, long cardigan which in my opinion adds that Coachella boho vibe. Fringe is a must (duh) but really, what about these Madden knee-length fringe gladiators? Are they perfect or are they perfect?! (lol). Thanks to my mommy for these, they were perfect as a birthday gift, Kisses to my Queen.

Accessories: Every girls fave! I went with a very chunky, statement necklace – so right for this look. I put on all the rings I could find, okay… lying I have a lot more but went with the most appropriate ones lol. Obviously my floppy hat called for the occasion, it’s perfect for this look and my John Lennon glasses – as I call them – which adds to the boho/hippie vibe.

Hopefully, this helped all my love bugs attending weekend #2 of Coachella or this can help you all for next years outfit! Trust me, none of these will go out of style for next year.

Fall and plaid … they just go oh-so-well together, don’t you think? I have to say, plaid has been my go-to this fall. I can throw on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, and to spice up the outfit – a plaid shirt! Now, when I laid eyes on this little dress … I was in love! Who wouldn’t want a plaid dress? It’s comfy, cute and can easily be dressed up or down. Believe it or not, I felt so unstoppable with this outfit. The dress was just the right length, and the height of the boots were perfect, everything came out fantastic. Not only are these boots incredibly fabulous, but aside from their look – they’re fitted so they hug the leg well! Omg… I’m drooling!

I threw on my not-so-infamous floppy hat (another go to this fall) and the looks I got in public when walking down Sunset Place with my hat covering half my face and shades hiding my eyes were awesome. With my lovely photographer, Jessica Rivas, snapping away – it just called for turning heads and serious stares. “Is she famous? Who’s that, omg look?”

I was iffy about throwing in a loud purse – I thought it would clash but I took a chance and it paid off. Being that the whole outfit is all black and white, throwing in that “loud” statement piece really worked in my favor and brought the whole outfit together. Not to mention, the bag was only $25.00 from Target! I just had to have it.
