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 ❤

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!

 

 

 

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.

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!

Brunch is a must on weekends. After a long week, we may want to go out and have some fun with our friends, am I right? Typically, a night like that results in sleeping in the next day and keeping the good vibes going with some good old fashioned comfort food. Continue reading “The Sunday Brunch Outfit”
