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 ❤

Rainy Day Outfit: Tomboy Edition

Incase you haven’t heard, its been raining cats and dogs in Florida lately. Gray and gloomy skies often affect our moods and even our sense of style for the day. I like to take advantage of rainy days in sporty/tomboy-ish attire.

Believe it or not, ever since I was a little girl…my dad always encouraged my sisters and I to play sports, anything from soccer, beach soccer, volleyball and running. I think thats why I (low-key) still enjoy dressing down.

 

The Tomboy Rainy Day OOTD:

Black leggings are your starting point. Tights or workout pants? No one will ever know. Since I live in Florida, and since we’re days away from “officially” summer, we’re bound to hit some pretty high temperatures. You can find me in a sports bra and a cotton workout shirt. This one in particular was about $15 from Old Navy! They have the CUTEST workout apparel.

I’ve been quite the sneaker head lately. I love the on-the-go state of mind and feeling. I especially hate the feeling of my feet wet in the middle of the day, so its always wise to wear anything but flip-flops. You may also be wondering, if you live in Florida, why are you wearing a jacket? Hello, the rain! 🙂 Be sure to have a jacket with a hoodie. Camo jackets are my absolute fav! They add so much texture to your outfit.

Dressing athletic has always been a preference of mine. I like the empowering feeling of getting things done that it gives me. Rain or shine.

I love knowing that although I’m a girly-girl, I have this other side to me that many people don’t know of. Which I love! If you’re the same, embrace it. Wanna know why? Because it just means we have the best of both worlds embedded IN us! Badass, and sweet.

So thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post and this outfit. If you’re not already following in me on Instagram, follow me here!

Peace, love and light, 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.

NYFW 2017: Metallics

An AMAZING Fashion week it was! This past weekend, I packed a few bags and traveled to my favorite city in the world thus far NEW YORK CITY for Fashion week.

This ootd was one of my favorites I wore. The first thing you’ll notice about this winter outfit is are the metallics…am I right? I purchased both the rose gold jacket ($40) and silver metallic skirt ($20) on sale at Zara.

I knew I wanted to wear this outfit but I felt it needed a bit more details so I added some fish net stockings and since it was snowing in Manhattan, I added this frayed checked frock coat ($40). Street Style for the win!

Tip: Mixing textures that are have somewhat of a color pallet theme is what creates and completes a street style look.

I wore this outfit to a Shop Style event and had the greatest time with my fellow blogger and friend Jasmine taking shots on a busy NYC street during stop lights.

I still don’t know how I managed to get through the NY winter with this outfit that day – I think I looked great, so felt great and didn’t mind the cold as much!  I hope you liked this post! I encourage you to try something bold like mixing pattens and incorporating metallics into your wardrobe.

I will be posting more on NYFW so stay tuned for more posts!

Until next time!

Old Navy Style Inspo

In Florida, sweater weather only lasts so long. Which means its time to bring out our winter capes and big blanket scarves. This multi-colored one is from Old Navy – it just so happened to be on clearance at the time and I received 80% off! It is the perfectly light layer for a cool day or as an extra cozy wrap inside when the weather really starts to go down, especially for cold offices…like mine!

Ta ta for now, and stay warm pretty ladies!

Thanksgiving Day Outfit

If you’re wondering what to wear to Thanksgiving dinner this year, I put an outfit together just for you.

thanksgiving-outfit-4

Now, I live in Florida but I’m assuming most people will be having dinner indoors. I chose neutral colors, which are super appropriate for fall.

These brown suede bell bottoms were bought for $30 at Forever 21. Any bottoms, whether a skirt or dress in this brown suede texture looks beautiful for this Holiday.

thanksgiving-outfit-3thanksgiving-outfit-5

I paired the suede pants with a metallic polyester tank from Zara ($20) These mixed fabrics go along perfectly  and look divine, for a last minute outfit idea.

thanksgiving-outfit-6thanksgiving-outfit-1

In case you were not aware, suede gives you a very stretchy and comfortable feel – similar to yoga pants. So do not be afraid to fill that belly this Thanksgiving! Trust me, I’ve passed the test and you have nothing to worry about 🙂

I would love to know and see what you decided to wear! So feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Follow me on Instagram: monicapramos_ to get the inside scoop on a Mexican Thanksgiving!

Wishing you and you’re family a great Thanksgiving!

Until next time,

Peace, love and blessings.

TRENDING: Oversized Sweaters & Over-The-Knee Boots

unnamed-10

Pairing an oversized sweater with over-the-knee boots is my absolute favorite fall look. It’s cute, comfy and effortless. Believe it or not, this BCBG Maxaria & Saks Off Fifth Look was only $200!

I found the perfect pair of navy blue-suede boots from BCBG Maxaria at Miromar Outlets ($120 – originally $200) during their Columbus Day weekend sale. It is a trend of this season and a must have in your closet. As I was taking my photos for this post, I had people stop and ask where I got my boots from, I said to myself “Wow, I’m really glad I chose this color.” I typically tend to stick to my blacks & neutrals – this color, is so UNIQUE the BCBG staff wouldn’t let me go with the black #GoodCall.

A cute cross-body bag is a perfect accessory for this outfit. Also, purchased at BCBG Maxaria – this bag was only ($36 – originally $60). This snake embossed navy blue cross body is so CLUTCH and is a great color to wear with any outfit this Fall.

My cold shoulder-oversized sweater is from Saks Off Fifth ($40) which I’m obsessed with. The cut of this sweater is so modern and stylish – to be worn on a nice day out or night out, giving you the ultimate comfort.

img_3940

As a Native Floridian, I will tell you – rain, shine or humidity…true fashionistas will always pull out their fall attire during the “cold months” of the year. I hope this look has inspired you to invest in a nice pair of boots and perhaps and even an oversized sweater to find out how fab you’ll look and feel. You’re welcome in advance 🙂

Happy October & Happy Fall!

I’d love to know your thoughts on this look!

Until next time,

Peace, love & blessings.

 

 

 

 

 

Colors of Fall

img_3088

Everyone’s favorite time of the year is here – Fall! At least, it is for women…and we all know why. The fashion, duh! Orange is the PERFECT fall color.

This gorgeous pumpkin-orange dress is from Bebe Outlets ($30) which can only be purchased at Miromar Outlets in the SWFL area. I was initially drawn by the color, then captivated by the light-weight fabric, perfect to be worn outdoors.

Regardless of places like Florida, where it is paradise 365 days a year – we still like to participate in seasonal trends and colors. We don’t have leaves falling and transitioning into the beautiful autumn colors we all adore and are admittedly jealous of (because they’d be awesome for photos) or the necessity to start wearing oversized sweaters, just yet. What we do have, however, are the most breathtaking sunsets year round and a wardrobe to go along with it.

img_2992

I wore this dress to an event I attended called #CravingFashion held at Waterside Shops in Naples, FL to benefit United Way of Collier County and Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. When you mix fashion and helping the community for a great cause, its always a win-win. Such a great event, with great food too!

HOMECOMING LOOKBOOK

img_2942

I’d like to start off by saying all of these (6) GORGEOUS dresses were purchased at Miromar Outlets with only $200…TOTAL! The deals they have here are SUREAL on name brand buys for anyone in the family and is my personal gem for shopping. Let’s not even get started with their Black Friday deals…

As my second lookbook, I decided to work on a homecoming theme. In hopes it’d be helpful for high school and college students attending this year.I attempted to select a variety of different trends – keeping in mind not everyone has the same style as myself.

So, without further ado…

GLAM ROCK

This Whyte Eyelash dress from Bloomingdales ($60) would typically be the furthest from my personal preference…or so I thought! I thought it turned out super cute and I LOVED the fit. The strapless dress had a very feminine yet cute, adorned with metallic studs for extra touch. This could be worn by anyone, especially if you have an edgy sense of style.

LBD

You can never go wrong with a little black dress. I found this fabulous find which is my personal favorite at Papaya ($25) I especially love the neckline and how comfortable the dress was. Definitely would wear this more than once!

ASYMMETRIC BANDAGE DRESS

This olive green dress was also purchased at Papaya ($23) I actually have one exactly like this in black that I paid over 4x the price for…talk about looks for less!

The Flirty Dress

I’m obsessed with the ruffles on this dress. I am a neutral tones type of gal and this pale pink color is to die for. Also purchased at Bloomingdales ($50) I would wear this dress to homecoming, dinner, church or an event!

TYPICAL LA IG MODEL DRESS

Did you catch the title on this dress? Am I right?! I’ve noticed this style is trending in bigger cities like L.A and Miami…but guess who found the look just in time for homecoming? This look is super classy and sexy with the most beautiful cuts! How often do you find a dress like this…hardly ever.

RED LACE DRESS

img_2934

This detailed red lace dress was found at Papaya ($25) That’s the fourth dress I bought from Papaya…it’s obviously my go-to store for more affordable trending looks. This dress stands out the most – it could be because of the color…or its intricacy, or both.

Over the years, I’ve realized homecoming dresses are a lot more versatile and can be worn more than once, as opposed to the traditional $200-$300 bedazzled dress that can only be worn once – like I did. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the dress…but I was probably the only one wearing a dress that could never be worn again. On top of that, my homecoming dress was borrowed by a good friend of mine!

I hope you found these looks to be helpful – I cannot tell you how thankful I am that I was able to find these type of unique dresses that can only be found at Miromar Outlets, in the SWFL area. Besides their amazing deals, the outlet mall is absolutely beautiful. Filled with dining, shops and so much more. Here are my favorite stores:

  1. Bloomingdales
  2. BCBG
  3. Papaya
  4. Bebe
  5. Banana Republic
  6. J. Crew
  7. Nike
  8. Reebok
  9. Saks
  10. Neiman Marcus

Let me know what you think, I’d love to know what you thought about this post and more importantly…what you wore! I hope you have a grand old time, in style.

Until next time,

Peace, love and blessings.

 

Back To School Lookbook

IMG_2053It’s that time of the year again! I decided to put my first lookbook together in honor of back to school. I’m very excited to share this with you! All of these looks express my personal style of how I would go to school, depending on my mood of course.

I present: The TomboyThe Girly Girl, the bohemian, and The Girl Next Door look.

Whenever you’re in a sporty mood, kicks are where you want to start with putting your outfit together. The red camo Nikes gave my tomboy look an edgy feel ($50). I wore a black F21 turtleneck crop top ($15) and paired it with these H&M olive pants ($20). I added a F21 jean jacket ($30) and a Herschel backpack ($40). I would wear something like this on a day where I’m not wanting so spend a lot of time on how I look.

I know what you’re thinking…that font reminds me of PLL (Pretty Little Liars) Lol, I promise it was not on purpose. I love me a good ole’ casual dress with a great cut…you know – the kind of dress that makes you feel comfortable yet beautiful. This is an everyday outfit that can be completed by simply adding a statement necklace.

For days when you are wanting to look cute, but not feeling like putting much effort into (which is how I feel almost EVERY day) – go with an oversized shirt. Works WONDERS. I’m aware classrooms are almost always cold – hence the scarf.If I could describe this look in one word…effortless.

The one girl who everyone admires for her modesty. I wore my favorite smoky black jeans from Zara ($40) a scarlet colored casual tank, an olive army jacket and some tan wedges. This is also appropriate for a casual college night out, or even Sunday brunch.

I can relate my personality to each of these different looks, as I’m sure you can too! Working full time and going to school part-time can be a struggle, so I 100% understand how spending hours on getting ready might not be a priority.  I hope these looks were helpful to put something quick and cute together! If you’re in school whether its middle school, high school, or college I wish you a great semester. Just don’t focus too much on getting an A+ on your style…get them grade A’s in formation!

Stay Tuned for my Labor Day Weekend Outfit post next! And also, my NYC lookbook! I’ll be traveling to the big apple tomorrow so be sure to follow me on the gram, snap, etc.

Thank you for reading. Until next time…peace love & blessings.
