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 ❤

3 Art Walls in Wynwood to Visit this Summer in Miami, FL!

IT’S SUMMER TIME! ☀️

3 New Art Walls in Wynwood Art District: 

Coming from a Native Floridian who lives on the west coast of the state in Naples, I travel to Miami a little too often. (As one should!) Miami is mainly known for South Beach, which is nice if you’re looking for more of a tropical atmosphere. But the GEM many haven’t discovered in Miami is the Wynwood Art District.

It’s probably the closest hipster area to Austin filled with modern art galleries, art murals, the dopest coffee shops, boutiques and so much nightlife! If you’re looking for some GREAT-Instagrammable content…you may want to keep reading because I’ve put the exact location of where you can find 3 new art walls in Wynwood along with details of my OOTD which might come in handy with our weather!

BTW, are you following me on Instagram yet? If not, follow me here! 🤗

This wall literally looks like a cauliflower-flower tattoo drawn on a huge chalkboard, doesn’t it? I was obsessed as soon as I laid my eyes on it. The coolest thing about Wynwood is you’ll see art like this in every corner. Like this one, located at the corner of NW 24th st and NW 2nd ave at the Shinola store. Trust me, I wasn’t the only one taking photos at this time, its always packed!

This wall is perfect for a bright and colorful outfit, like mine! Located at the corner of NW 23rd st and NW 1st pl…this street offers some of the dopest hot spots like El Patio (nightlife) and a delicious lunch spot called the Butter shop.

So, for anyone who is interested in something other than travel and being a foodie…I have some ootd tips when being in Wynwood!

  1. Wear comfortable shoes. I’ve been such a sneaker head lately- obsessed with these Cole Haan shoes that can be worn anywhere, anytime.
  2. Cotton or Linen. All the way, all day. Unless you want to be drenched in sweat. I’m not even kidding, the humidity here is insane! Thats why I wore a over-sized cotton shirt to keep me as cool as possible.
  3. Pack light. If you are traveling, please leave all suitcases and large backpacks in your car. Wynwood is an all-day walking around type of place 🙂 A small cross-body is all you need.
  4. Why am I accessorizing with a windbreaker? Well, if you’re from Florida…you’re cold ALL.THE.TIME. Especially in the A.C. And Wynwood is known to blast their A.C. It was lightweight so perfect for coffee shops or restaurants.

I’ve been more on the sporty side lately. I love the on-the-go feeling. Especially when traveling, you’ll always catch me looking a little “edgy.” So even though this outfit might not be considered to be hardcore fashionable, it definitely felt like it.

Last but not least, the pink wall. It’s actually on the same street as the white mural. You cannot go wrong with pink! I hope you enjoyed this travel/fashion post. I would love to know if you found it helpful, if you have any questions please let me know :) I can’t wait to see all of your photos! Don’t forget to tag me on Insta @monicapramos_

Enjoy Wynwood,

Until next time

VICTORIA BECKHAM X TARGET COLLABORATION

I wanted to share this dress by Victoria Beckham I purchased at Target last week. If yo have not made a Target run this week, please do so you’ll be impressed just like I was. This dress could not have been more perfect for Easter I mean check out that bunny neckline!

I will be showing you a few more pieces from her collection soon so stay tuned and follow me on Instagram! @monicapramos_

WEEKEND OUTFIT INSPO: SPRING EDITION

Hey y’all!

I was cleaning my closet out the other day and realized I had not done a blog post on my favorite bell bottom jeans I own, so I thought I’d put a weekend outfit together for you as some spring outfit inspo.

Let me start by sharing the amazing deal I got on these jeans…the store, The Limited, was closing down so everything had to go…I ended up getting these jeans that were originally $70 for 13 bucks. #WINNING

I have naturally long legs so I love wearing high waisted pants like this from time to time because it makes me look taller! Thats one benefit you’ll get. Also a pair of jeans like this have a great fit to compliment your body no matter what shape or size and are super comfortable and stretchy.

During springtime, something like this would be perfect to wear on weekends for brunch, a food festival or just to go shopping lol – I added a metallic cami from Zara (mixing different textures really makes a difference and brings your outfit to life) along with adding a few accessories like some sunnies and a bandana! Throw on some wedges and a cross body and you are all set!

This style is a little more casual which I prefer because its easy and takes no time whatsoever to put together. I’m sure anyone including yourself can throw something similar together by something you have in your closet right now.

Thats all she wrote!

On a personal note, I’ll leave you with this I put on one of my Instagram (@monicapramos_) captions the other day as something I definitely need to hear more of lately, hope it encourages you too:

 Life is all about pushing oneself to become the best possible version of ourselves. We have our down days, but there’s always more ahead. ALWAYS keep your attention there, make a plan and follow it. Tomorrow is a new day.

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!

URBAN LIGHTS AT LACMA: LOS ANGELES, CA

One of my biggest recommendations on things to do when traveling to LA is to visit some art galleries if you’re into that kind of stuff. LACMA specifically speaking has been a personal favorite because of the Urban Lights!

I had been to LACMA one before, however, it was during the day so I knew these lights were famous at night time. I went for a date night and found out it’s especially popular at night for photos!

If you’ve been to LA lately, you know its either been raining or super cold…this was a pretty chilly night. I wore black ripped jeans from Zara, a graphic tee and bomber jacket from Papaya and a faux fur scarf from Ann Taylor.

It was a beautiful night, definitely recommended for date night or a nice place to walk with family or if you’re a blogger…for photos! Hope you enjoyed this post, please follow me on Instagram (@monicapramos_) for more of my adventures!

Until next time,

Peace, love and blessings ❤
