HOW TO PAIR SNEAKERS & DRESSES

SNEAKERS & DRESSES

 

Sneakers and dresses are my absolute FAVORITE ootd. Don’t get me wrong, I love to dress up in heels and get all dolled up…or on the other hand, I could completely bum it out and be in slides and sweatpants all.day.long.

But when it comes to dresses and sneakers? UGH! It’s truly the best of both worlds. Not too girly, no too tomboy – just the perfect mix. I could wear this on date night, a day out or if I’m traveling! It’s the ultimate comfort-chic!

These sneakers were bought in Mexico, I’ve never seen anything like them which is why I love them! This dress was bought at Papaya 🙂

Latest & Greatest from Little Ol’ Me

More than halfway through 2017. Absolutely nothing has gone as planned…and I am truly the happiest I’ve ever been. There’s a saying that says, “everything happens for a reason” and quite frankly, I’ve been finding purpose behind every challenge I’ve face thus far, this year.

I took a short break from blogging, not because I wanted to (I love writing, sharing awesome experiences in cute outfits I mean, common…what girl doesn’t) but because I have been focused on much bigger goals for myself and my future that I can’t share just yet – but will very shortly love to!

One positive thing I will share is an amazing opportunity that was presented to me by Naples Daily News (our Naples local newspaper) and USA Today. On MONDAY August 28th, I will be sharing all that can be done in Naples, FL with only $100. This is going to be great exposure for me, and I am truly honored and beyond thankful that I was selected for such a great project.

On the other hand, now that summer is coming to an end, I wanted to share the last blog post I was SUPPOSED to be sharing until my life really got hectic. I haven’t even shared any of my Mexico trip details, I was there for nearly 2 weeks!

This was shot in one of my favorite places in Miami, The Design District. Fashion is art, so I was happy to hear all of the great feedback when I was walking around to take photos. I’m glad other people notice I have an eye for things! I paired this funky, back & white Victoria Beckham skirt with a bikini top.

Trust me, you would have been in a bathing suit it was SO hot! This is a typical Miami pool party ootd. Gals usually like to add some style even though they will be poolside, which I love! The whole shabang, hair, make-up & heels.

I have so much more to share! Please follow me on Instagram to be up to date with the latest and greatest going on in my little world! God bless you all ❤

Move for Minds Event to Benefit The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement – Miami, FL

Did you hear all the buzz about the recent Move for Minds event that took place in 8 different cities across the U.S at the same time last Sunday, June 4th? I just so happened to attend the event held in Miami, FL and I have put together all the info you need to know about this amazing, life-changing movement!

Let me start by saying that this event was presented by Maria Shriver and Equinox. As many of you may or may not know, Maria is the founder of The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. The organization’s mission is to raise funds for research and potentially find a cure for Alzheimer’s. Did you know that every 66 seconds a new brain develops Alzheimer’s and 2/3 of those brains belong to Women? Maria is on the hunt to find out why.

In order to participate, each attendee had to raise at least $250 dollars. The three hour event consisted of a one hour workout, one hour of  networking and time to look at all of the vendors along with a time to refuel with healthy snacks (which were complimentary), and a one hour panel.

The workout: The one hour workout was a special designed workout that included both cardiovascular and meditation exercises. See video below.

 

The Marketplace: i.e the brain-healthy snack break/networking time also gave participants an opportunity to check out the innovative products from the sponsors. There were great sponsors like Beats by Dr. Dre, Cole Haan, Smart Water, Lyft and more. My personal favorite perk from the sponsors was receiving a $250 voucher code to receive a free pair of Cole Haan shoes!

 

The Panel: The panel was filled with memory coaches, life coaches, nutritionists and doctors who all realize the gap we need to fill when it comes to Alzheimer awareness. We learned memory techniques to help us train our brains to remember with visuals. 

The Move for Minds event took place at Equinox in the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel in Brickell. Women were empowered, they engaged and were educated for such an important cause that many of us, like myself prior to attending would never have realized the importance. I encourage you all to look into this event, invite your friends and family next year in a city near you.

Thank you for reading. I hope the this amazing cause caught your attention! If you aren’t already, follow me on Instagram @monicarpramos_ to find out about more events like this in South Florida!

Love, light and blessings always,

White on White Spring Outfit Inspo

Hi there, friend! If this is your first time on my blog, WELCOME! 🙂 I love to write about personal growth, food, travel and of course, fashion.

Today’s look is one of my favorite this spring. You can’t go wrong with white, especially living in Florida, its sort of necessary in order to not melt 🙂 But I’m here to give you some tips and advice on wearing white-on-white. Denim is always in style, white jeans, however, are just DIVINE. Its the prefect day to night piece for spring so make sure to get you a pair!

I purchased both my blouse and jeans at Papaya. I love Papaya so much because the clothes is very inexpensive, the clothes are always trendy and since fashion is always evolving…you won’t feel guilty about donating your inexpensive clothes during your next spring closet cleaning.

Spring Trend Tips: Embroidered roses and cropped fringe jeans are IN this season.

Lights in the Garden – Naples Botanical Garden

In the month of December, Naples Botanical Gardens in Naples, FL puts on magical lights in their gardens. I was greatly impressed with their unique, modern and colorful light combinations they showcased.

These Gardens are my favorite hometown attraction, by day the gardens take you through an international journey of unique plants and colors from from all over the world including Asia and Brazil. I had never attended their Night Lights in the Garden until now and the amount of lights gave off an entirely different and magical feeling to the gardens. And live music too!

It was definitely a very popular place to be in December. Every night I wanted to go, tickets were sold out therefore I was not able to go until the end of December. Check their website out here to find out how it looks by day! This was a perfect date night, however Naples Botanical Gardens is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll with family or friends as well as for your kids! They have a little section just for them 🙂

I can officially check out the Night Lights in the Garden off my bucket list, hope you can visit NBG and experience it too! Visit my Instagram for more photos : monicapramos_

Until next time,

Peace, Love & blessings!
