THE PERFECT PAIR: RIPPED JEANS AND A BODYSUIT

 

These jeans…too much? I LOVE EM. I think every gal should have some crazy denim’s like this in their closet. Not only do they make a statement on your bold personality but they are also so fun and look super trendy at the same time.

I like to compare this style to Khloe Kardashian’s. I think she has the best style out of the bunch. Or at least the most relevant to my personal wardrobe. It’s not necessary to spend an arm and a leg to replicate the same look because let’s face it, most of us girls hardly wear things more than once.

Jeans like this make you feel some time if way. An idgaf what you think about these jeans cause I like them sort of attitude. That’s how I feel at least.

This entire look is brought to you by Forever 21. The bodysuit, the jeans, and the transparent heels. All under $100.

I hope you enjoyed this outfit! Please follow me on Instagram for sneak peeks of my upcoming looks! @monicapramos_

Until next time my loves!

Kim Kardashian West Inspired Look: A Business Casual OOTD

Many women in the workplace nowadays have not explored the freedom they have to make statements with simply, their attire. So I wanted to share this $40 look with you!

This outfit is probably one of my favorites I’ve ever put together. It’s elegant, modest, stylish AND its professional, depending on what you do. I, for example, run my own business which requires me to attend events where I need to dress up. I never question nor think twice whether I should wear something too “out there.” I just wear it.

Why you may ask? Well first, I will always and forever love fashion. I will always stay true to myself and never change my look for an occasion because of what others will think. I feel that’s what makes one different!

I wore this open-silk skirt from Forever 21 ($20) for an all-day event I did with my local newspaper and USA Today. I wanted to look professional, yet chic…so I paired it with a white long sleeved shirt with minimal details, the ruffles on the shoulders ($20).

I encourage you to be bold, make a statement and most importantly, be you! I will be dedicating a full blog post to my day with the media so please stay tuned! Follow me on Instagram: @monicapramos_

 

 

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

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.

Summer’s Go-To Trend: Rompers

Happy June! We have OFFICIALLY made it to halfway through the year, guys… The start to every new month gives me the best feeling about pretty much everything except Florida’s heat. That’s why you can find me in cotton made rompers at anytime I’m not at work.

Rompers are my FAVORITE because you can wear it to the beach as a cover-up, on a Saturday afternoon and even at night! Florida plays no games when it comes to heat and humidity which is why I chose this one by Forever 21. Its lightweight, sleeveless and has a striped print that never goes out of style – did I mention, comfortable? Wearing white is also always a good idea during summertime because it helps keeps you cool.

This month for me is a time for lots of planning. I have a few trips this summer/fall and I am very excited to share them with you all, so follow my Instagram @monicapramos_

Talk to you all soon!

Xoxo,

Mo

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.

YUMI KIM: #1 Designer Pieces for Spring 2017

For many of us, it is finally spring time! As for me in Sunnyville, FL…it’s either Spring or Summer year round. Okay okay, enough bragging and lets get on to how to dress this spring!
Did you enjoy the dress in my photos? The dress is designed by Yumi Kim which I first heard of at NYFW last month and fell in LOVE.
Its called the “Rush Hour” Maxi dress and is the PERFECT dress for spring and summer because it is a wrap dress thats perfect even for weddings or beach events! The details include a crossover with a deep v-neckline, a self-tie and adjustable spaghetti straps with the sexiest slit!
Now, this fabric is 100% silk so not only did I feel super skinny minnie when I wear it but I also have the ultimate comfort and freshness.
I always try to express my love for fashion as a form of expressing my confidence and to hopefully inspire others. This dress made me feel very pretty, and when someone looks feels good, it shows. That is why I encourage people to think a little deeper when it comes to their style.
“I breathe in confidence and breathe out all fear.”

On a personal note, I have been going through a major change in my life that has not been the easiest, and this blog has helped tremendously to keep my head up – I’m happy to say that I’m slowly but surely getting myself back up by returning to my kickboxing classes that I love so much. I would love to share my day to day with you on Instagram so please follow along! @monicapramos_
Until next time my loves!

CHIC BUSINESS ATTIRE

In modern day, most of us women work a 40 hour week…am I right? Today I’m sharing how style meets business attire!

I typically receive questions on my office attire and I am so excited to share these details! May I start by saying my entire outfit was $20! Both purchased at Zara which has the trendiest pieces for in and out of the office!

This flowy long sleeved blouse shows elegance and style – it is very appropriate for the office because it gives a conservative look but also shows some personality. As for the trousers, a black pair would have worked fine but the shimmer on these pants brings the outfit to life!

I encourage you to mix textures, a personal tip of mine is to try and stick to solid colors for a more put together look!

As a professional in the corporate world, you want to avoid being in a box and have a sense of style! This outfit is a perfect example! Follow me on Instagram for my daily ootd’s: monicapramos_

Spring is among us! At least in Florida it almost ALWAYS is 🙂

Today I’m sharing my latest Zara obsession – this long sleeved floral dress! Can I start by saying, it was $13!! I know, call me “Clearance Queen!”

Zara is by far my favorite retail store because what you’ll find at the prices offered are a no brainer. They do such a good job to keep with with the trendiest finds at an unbeatable cost. This dress for example, looks expensive…but not at all!

I bought this dress in NYC during NYFW and decided to wear it to the office, I received the greatest compliments! It has a silky feel to it which creates the ultimate comfort all day long. It could be worn for a happy hour, a date night, Sunday brunch…its very versatile.

I was feeling extra, so I added this Forever 21 jacket ($40). Roses on any garment is in! I paired some nude pumps by Jessica Simpson.

Be BOLD to mix and match your textures, thats what makes fashion so fun! It’s a statement about who you are and how you feel about yourself.

Until next time,

Cute Christmas Sweaters

Christmas time is for work holiday parties, pajamas on Christmas morning and ugly sweater parties. We held our 2nd annual ugly Christmas dewater/white elephant party and it was a blast! However, incase you didn’t know…its okay to wear something cute rather than ugly.

This cute little penguin sweater was found at Forever 21 ($25) and is definitely made to keep you warm. Living in the Sunshine State means this sweater was not meant to be kept on all night which is exactly what happened. I paired it with rose gold striped jeans from Neiman Marcus at 80% off and some metallic chunky heels from H&M ($35)

I wanted to share a bit of our night with you – this DIY “backdrop” was made from wrapping paper! Although I should have been a bit more considerate to acknowledge there would be more than one person positioned in front of it as well as the fact there are many out there way taller than I…next time, next time.

My friends and family had the greatest time with the white elephant exchange, dancing (suavemente style), having “Photo Booth” fun, eating good and enjoy a nice old glass of wine, beer, rosé and champagne…or two 🙂 Check out my crew!

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and continue to be festive while you can!
