While the rest of the U.S.A. is reaching for their cozy cashmeres and fuzzy Uggs, we here in Miami are still sweating up a storm as though we live on the equator à la Kenya, Africa. So not fair! #GlobalWarmingIsRealPeople
I feel like the best way to “winterize” any ensemble here in the
desert 305 without dying from heat is by throwing on a distressed denim jacket and praying for a cool breeze to pay us a kind visit. For this white asymmetrical dress, I added hot pink lace-up sandals from Salvatore Ferragamo for a pop of color and fun. Aren’t they sexy AF? YES. Duh. They’re the kind of heel that make you want to slip them on and romp around the house butt naked — but wait! — that would totally freak out my kids and force them into therapy and that would not be a good thing BECAUSE NO CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUBJECTED TO THEIR MOTHER CHANNELING A PLAYBOY PLAYMATE. Talk about trauma from yo’ mama.
Anyhoo, how cute are my clover jewels in this look? Miami-based jeweler (and mommy of four!) Jacqueline Pinto kindly gifted me these pieces and I’m o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d. In fact, I’m now a Jacqueline Pinto Jewelry Brand Ambassador (what! what!) and wear my earrings with pink tourmaline everyday and people always ask me, “Where’d you get that?” Well, now you know. And knowing is half the battle, kids.
