WHAT TO WEAR: WEEKEND STYLE

Hey everyone! Here's another edition of "What to Wear" As you guys know I live in the Caribbean which mean that while some of you are enjoying fall weather, it's hotter than ever where I live. I know I've mentioned one too many times how much I miss Fall, exhibit 1 and exhibit 2 so instead of creating looks for only tropical climates I thought I'd live vicariously through all of you who are enjoying fall and create a few Fall looks. 

Weekend Outfit Ideas
Outfit 1: Cap: Patricia Field / Tee: Newlook / Shorts: J.Crew
Outfit 2: Top: Newlook / Shorts: Boohoo / Sandals: Asos
Necklace: Pacsun / Bag: Nastygal
Outfit 3: Fedora: Asos / Dress: Zara / Sandals: Asos  

I usually spend my weekends running errands and for that I like to be as comfortable as possible, especially in the heat. The accessories I added can be used for each outfit and if you're not running errands and want to dress things up a bit, a pair of wedges or sandals with a cute clutch or cross body bag can easily do the trick. 

Weekend Outfit Ideas: fall

Outfit 1: Sweater: J.Crew / Skirt: Dorothy Perkins / Booties: Sole Society
Outfit 2: Sweater: American Eagle / Jeans: H&M / Flats: Kelly & Katie 
Scarf: Zara / Leather Jacket: American Eagle / Trench: Uniqlo
Outfit 3: Dress: TopShop / Boots: Dolce Vita

For the fall looks, if you're like me and get cold easily, a pair of tights and a heavy coat will keep you nice and cozy if you're wearing the skirt or dress. Leather jackets and trench coats are my thing and they are perfect for any occasion, dressed up or down. Oh, let's take a minute to drool over that gorgeous Sole Society bootie.
What do you think about the looks, would you wear any of the outfits? Don't forget to enter the $300 Kate Spade giveaway. Have a fantastic weekend!

CURRENTLY CRAVING

Island Hipster's wish list

Flats: Zara / Sandals: Topshop here & here / Dress: French Connection / Skirt: Chicwish / Clutch: French Connection / Crossbody Bag: Brahmin / Bucket bag: Halston Heritage

I wanted to share some of the items that I am currently craving / my current wishlist with you guys. Unlike most of you, who are trading in your summer clothes for appropriate fall and winter attire, I am looking for more summer clothes :-) I live in a 365 days a year summer weather and even when it rains it's still lovely; most of the times...ahh the good ole island life. As I mentioned in my previous post, I love fall, it's my favorite time of the year, and as much as I have a love - hate relationship with island life I don't see myself trading it in anytime soon. I don't like winter! Wait, I loathe winter! Believe me, I have lived in places where I experienced brutal winters. I would cry and wish I was back in the islands sipping on a cold beverage while laying out on the beach. All my whining aside about winter, I can't wait to be in New York in November, finger's crossed for really nice weather.

What are you guys currently craving / what's on your wishlist? Have a wonderful weekend :-) xx.

WHAT TO WEAR: WORK STYLE

Work Outfit idea
Dress: Mango / Necklace: Sole Society / Handbag: Tory Burch / Shoes: Sole Society / Lipstick: Mac 'Sheen Supreme' New Temptation



Wear to Work
Blazer: Oasis / Skirt: Dorothy Perkins / Cami: TopShop / Necklace: Zara / Handbag: Zara / Shoes: Asos



What to wear to Work
Shirt: Uniqlo / Sweater: Fat Face / Pants: HM / Shoes: Sole Society / Earrings: HM / Bracelet: HM

Even though I now live in the always sunny, sometimes rainy islands, I love when December rolls around because it gets a bit cooler and I can wear a light sweater, makes me feel like I am back in US. I miss fall, I should also mention it's my favorite time of the year. While all three looks can be fall appropriate with the addition of a pair of tights and a jacket I decided to create the last look with the chunky cable knit sweater because I really miss a cozy chunky sweater. The few I kept are hanging in my closet waiting for me to visit my family so they can come out to play.
