This past Sunday marked the chilliest South Beach has felt in a while. I was headed to an outdoor movie with my girlfriend, Colleen, so I happily pulled out some extra layers and, finally, put on some booties that are not open toe. My Toms booties have a super soft foot pad on the interior, which makes them great for walking.
One of my absolute favorite trends for 2017 is "The Brooch". It's not just about pins like the ones you see at Urban or other fast fashion stores, it's all about beautiful, ornate, bejeweled, and intricate pieces of art that accent your clothing. This jacket from Topshop (few seasons old) was screaming for a little pop on the lapel. I was giddy to pull out my vintage toucan brooch. Though, I am more bundled than usual in Miami, I still love adding tropical touches to my look. It feels appropriate with all the palm trees and lush green surroundings. I found this piece at a small antique store in Old Quebec City. I am partial to vintage animal brooches- my fav!
My ripped denim is also a Topshop find. The Leigh fit is my go to jean. Before walking out the door, I grabbed my J. Crew Edie bag to contrast all my neutrals. Sadly, this bag is no longer available at J.Crew, but you can still find a few colors on Poshmark, or shop The Cambridge Satchel Company for a look alike.
Oh, and we saw "Amy", the documentary about Amy Winehouse. It was rather sad, but very well done and insightful. If you are a fan, or even not, I recommend! xo RCN
