I don’t know about you, but I never really had a “motto” until I found this shirt from Le Motto. When I saw this cute and practical tank with this awesome message, I automatically decided to adopt “Live more and worry less” as my new life motto. It really fits any life situation perfectly right?! Do you guys have any mottos? Please share! Le Motto has tons of tanks with awesome messages…maybe yours is already there!

This look is a little more serious than what I usually post, but I was in the mood to go a little darker for Fall. I wasn’t daring enough to change my hair color though! This look is so practical and comfy though. I’m thinking I might wear it to travel to NYC next month. This knit sweater from Darling Clothes is literally the cutest and yummiest sweater I own. I know it will not be leaving my side when it starts cooling down. Have a great weekend beauties and always thank you for reading!

Essential Sweaters for Fall…

There are definitely some cute sweater trends this Fall and I am loving every one of them.  Although it is still very warm here in South Florida, I am looking forward to my trip to NYC in November for Thanksgiving break so I have been on a sweater hunt. There are so many cute options out there, but I thought I would show you guys my top 5 favorites I feel are on point, and still very classic.

#1. The layered look

Sweater by J. Crew (find it here)

Ok how awesome is this idea? You don’t even have to layer and feel like you’ve gained an extra 5 pounds putting your sweater on! I love this! This red one is stunning, but they have a brown and a navy on sale now with the code PICKASALE. Guess what I’m doing…?!?!

#2.  Acrylic

H&M Sweater (find it here) 

Probably my second favorite trend right now is the acrylic sweaters in the pretty pastel colors that are everywhere, yet still hard to find in my opinion! I found this one at H&M the other day and snagged it right up!

#3. The statement print

Leopard sweater found here

Of course every girl needs leopard in their life, and why not a leopard sweater to complete the collection? Love this one!

 

#4. The long cardigan

Long cardigan found here

I am loving that the long cardigan is back and in full force. I love this one because it is on key with the super hot color right now for fall. It’s grey if you didn’t know already! I also love the length, I feel this length could compliment anyone.

#5. The wordy sweater

I just can’t get enough of top with a cute saying on it, am I right? I have this one in black, but also loving this cute yellow color. It’s also on sale for $34!

Top: c/o Bradamant | Shorts: J.Crew (on sale!) | Necklace: c/0 Julie Vos | Earrings: c/o Kendra Phillip | Ring: c/o Kendra Phillip | Clutch: c/o GiGi New York | Sunnies: Kate Spade via Nordstrom | Bracelet: David Yurman | Watch: Michael Kors via Nordstrom | Shoes: Steve Madden | Lips: MAC Pink Pigeon

I always love to style a neutral top with some cool accessories and stand-out pieces. What makes this top unlike others is that it is a bodysuit! That’s right, no accidental peek-a-boo’s from you know where. The material is also extremely soft and comfy, being made from silk and cotton. The material is perfect for that yucky South Florida heat and humidity. I loved completing this look with this stunning necklace from Julie Vos and metallic shorts. And how cute are those dainty heart earrings and ring? I die. I was a little surprised how cute my go-to leopard Steve Madden wedges complimented the look. I just love it when looks come together like that!

How do you girls like to style different patterns? Are you intimidated doing it? Don’t be! You’d be surprised how cute the end result will be! Take a picture and post it on Instagram if you guys try it out yourselves! Be sure to tag me so I can see you!

Hope you girls have an awesome Monday and a great week!

Love Always Your Miami Beauty Girl,

Elyse
