Florida Outfit Recap

As you may have noticed I headed to Florida this weekend for a little family vacation. I was so excited to catch a break from the cold weekend we had in New York. Of course I came home to a snow storm on Monday which was a change of pace from the Florida humidity I was experiencing.

My first outfit included one of the top trends right now, that was covered in my previous post. Fishnets are having a moment, but this time I paired them with thigh-high boots from Essex Glam  and high-waisted jean shorts. I then paired the outfit with this gorgeous blouse from Metisu with fun bell sleeves. This was a good transitional look for me in the airport with an added cozy sweater from Knitted Belle Boutique. I loved how the cardigan was longer than my shorts too to give the look some added proportions. I topped it off with my new Furla purse and these gorgeous sunglasses from Zero UV. Last summer it was all about the yellow clear aviators, this summer it is going to be about the pink see-through aviator glasses. These shades are only around $10 too!

For my pool look, I put on my new suit from Tictail NYC. I was invited to go shop with Tictail at their store and selected this swimsuit to take home with me. Tictail NYC is such an amazing store. I was at the store this past week to promote that all sales would go to Planned Parenthood and He for She all week long. All of the brands at the store are also female-founded and it was such an amazing store to visit. I love this suit and was afraid to try out a high-waisted bikini for the longest time, but I should have figured it would have worked well with me. My long torso loves a high-waist. The print with the stripes had me and my friend Zoe drooling over this suit too.


My second day look was a little more dressed up. We were going to a family gathering and I was so excited to wear this dress from Metisu for the first time. Embroidery is especially in right now and I was dying to put this on. I added a little belt to it to accentuate my waist and the flare of the skirt. I then paired it with my poker tights from Time for Tights. These tights are amazing and you will get a lot of compliments. They don’t look quite like thigh-high socks because of the intricate design. It’s similar, but different and will catch everyone’s eyes. I paired the tights with my River Island booties and  a pair of my Zero UV sunglasses. I love big frames on sunglasses, otherwise I feel so uncomfortable when shades feel small on my face.

I entered an Instagram contest to win the experience of a life time. The grand prize was to receive a consultation from none other than celebrity dermatologist, Dr. Lancer.  Dr. Lancer treats celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Ellen DeGeneres. The prize entailed airfare, hotel stay, consultation, a power peel, Lancer Skincare products and spending money all for two people.

My boyfriend and I flew into LAX and headed to the Carlyle Inn in Beverly Hills, CA. The hotel was gorgeous and super Instagram-able. The first night we headed straight to SUR Restaurant because I am a big Lisa Vanderpump fan. The restaurant was just as I had imagined gorgeous and delicious.

The next day we enjoyed our complimentary breakfast. Afterwards we headed straight to Dr. Lancer’s office. Dr. Lancer’s consultation was amazing. He broke down our heritage and learned the behavior of our skin which led to his product recommendation and routines for us individually. After we met with Dr. Lancer we received our power peels. The power peel uses a vacuum to shoot tiny crystals onto your skin, this removes a layer of outer skin. After that we were polished of and had a moist towel laid on us. We were then exposed to liquid nitrogen to freeze skin lesions.

Our skin looked and felt amazing afterward. My boyfriend even received a compliment at work the next day about his skin. We recently received our Dr. Lancer products and can’t wait to see the results.

After our consultation we roamed around Rodeo Drive, ate at Sugarfish (amazing sushi!), grabbed a pastry at Urth Caffe and then headed to the beach. I had never been to California before and this was really the way to do it. I’d like to thank Dr. Lancer and his wonderful team for creating not just a prize, but an experience.
