Anyway, check out this cute Pre-Fall 2019 Mini Dress by Markarian that I spotted today. It actually ships out in the spring to summer and makes a great statement dress. I’m in love!

A Clean Slate

So I really took some vacation time the last few weeks and did not get much done. I feel refreshed and ready for a New Year. So some of us are scared by the possibilities and the unknown. But we are given this time, energy and health and if you haven’t done it already, the beginning of the year is a great time to reflect and write down your goals. A full on business and personal plan is great and you have to allow yourself to embrace the unknown. That is, give yourself a clean slate.

I read somewhere that it’s a good idea to clean house. Discard things that no longer serve you- including items that remind you of that ex-friend or whoever. Throw out or give to charity those things that you don’t use or wear. Just clean. You’ll be surprised how much energy this can give you.

Then write your plans. But don’t get overwhelmed. Start with day-to-day and month-to-month action items with deadlines. Share your plans to a trusted someone if you so choose and ask them to be your accountability partner. As a financial planner by day, sometimes the hardest thing to do for clients is to simply create a budget. But that’s where it starts. 

Hope this helps, you’re not alone. Don’t be afraid of change or the new things that come our way in life. Here’s to 2019.

Sincerely,

Tibi Asymmetric Yellow Skirt in Downtown Miami

Happy New Year! Hope you had a great holiday. So believe it or not, the temperature can drop in Florida. LOL It gets into the 50s sometimes. Now I know what you’re thinking. That’s nothing. But this wool yellow Tibi assymetric skirt (similar here) and black cashmere sweater (similar here and on sale) are just the thing for those winter days in Florida. There’s not that many winter days in Florida but you get the point!

I paired the outfit with my classic vintage Prada booties and loved it. This is actually an outfit you can take to the office and out for drinks at happy hour if you so please. And if you’re up north, yellow will definitely give you a little energy in the midst of all that grey and snow.

Anyway, happy 2019! Check out more photos below!

Captain Frank’s Seafood Market in Boynton

One of the best things about Florida is the fresh seafood. In New York, the good seafood restaurants usually had to outsource their seafood so I really appreciate it here in Florida. Yesterday I stopped by Captain Frank’s Seafood Market in Boynton Beach and was just taken by their decor. Not to mention the fresh fish. I grabbed some lobster cakes, crab cakes, escargot and white fish dip. Had some last night and it was awesome.

Do you like seafood? If so, where do you get it from?

Proenza Schouler Tiger Print Cami Dress

 

This Proenza Schouler Tiger Print Cami Dress is really cute for this Fall. Yes, there’s a midriff cutout but it’s a lovely piece to layer in cooler weather. And, of course it’s great for warmer places that take longer to transition to the colder weather. Who can resist a great animal print for fall?

Herve Leger Mini Skirt and Badgley Mischka Heels

Greetings from sunny Florida! I found these new purple Badgley Mischka heels at Nordstrom Rack and paired them with a vintage purple Herve Leger skirt. I topped it off with a For Love and Lemons bodysuit. The mini skirt shows off your legs and stretches to match your curves. I just love the outfit. Check out more photos below.

Exclusive Walk To The Beach Merchandise

Hey Everyone! I’ve had a lot of things going on recently. But I wanted to announce some new Walk To The Beach merchandise available on my RedBubble art shop. If you haven’t seen some of my artwork, make sure to view some of it here. Beaches are beautiful so what better way to celebrate nature than to wear it on a t-shirt or a cell phone case? 

Summer might be over but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the sun!
