The Versace Mansion

Formerly known as the Versace Mansion, The Villa Casa Casuarina is definitely a must see destination, only steps away from Miami Beach. Although the only way to take a peek inside of the mansion is through a dinner reservation at Gianni’s, a booked stay at one of the ten different suites, or some other form of reservation, you should take any opportunity you have to explore the amazing grounds.

Today, I was lucky enough to spend the morning exploring the mansion and snapped some images; from the Azure suite, to the stunning pool made of 24 karat gold! I was definitely itching to jump in the pool with this crazy Florida summer heat, next time I’ll remember to pack a swimsuit.

4 Trends to Try in 2016

With 2016 officially underway, it’s time to leave last year in the past and embrace everything new—and that includes fashion trends. Though chilly temps might still be the norm in most parts of the country, spring styles are already front and center in the fashion world. And as much as I love my sweaters and boots, the latest designs for the spring season make me glad to live in a place where I don’t have to wait until May to wear them! Keep an eye out for these must-try trends to add to your wardrobe in 2016.

  1. Half-Moon Bag

As soon as Victoria Beckham’s half-moon handbag design walked (or rather, was carried) down the runway at her Spring 2016 show during New York Fashion Week, fashion-followers everywhere starting lusting after the new “it” purse. As Glamour writes, the crescent-shaped style has all the key components of a bag of the season: it’s highly Instagrammable, has a distinguishable shape, and, perhaps most importantly, it’s roomy enough to hold all of your must-have items. Check, check, and check!

2. Shimmer and Shine

The holidays may be over, but don’t put away the sparkly pieces that you rocked during the annual party circuit just yet. High-shine details and metallic shimmer are in for spring, making every day feel a little more festive than usual. PopSugar’s coverage of this trend can be helpful, as it covers everything from shorts to cocktail dresses, giving you a way to wear a NYE-worthy outfit year-round.

3. Surprising Sneakers

If one thing is for certain, it’s that this particular trend of 2016 is not made for the gym, tennis courts, or any other type of sweat-inducing activity. Spring’s sneakers put a spin on the classic shape, elevating the once-simple shoe to a more interesting level. While some designers opted for a pointed toe or luxe fabrics, others showcased colorful stitching and metallic finishes. To find your new favorite pair of kicks, Lyst’s shoe collection is a good place to start. The sampling of different designers from across the industry ensures you’ll find just the right surprising sneakers for you.

4. The Slip Dress

A staple of ’90s fashion, the slip dress is trending once again for the new year, and it’s sexier than ever. The subtle, strappy slip of decades past has gotten a makeover, with feminine lace, ruching, and hints of graphic color. Still, if wearing the lingerie-inspired piece outside of your bedroom seems too risqué, top your slip dress with a light oversized sweater or layer a simple tee underneath.

Holiday Goodies

After an amazing time spent in Miami for the New Year (@aroonmelane) it was such a treat coming home to some new sparkley surprises! 

   

  
  I am absolutely obsessed with these PeachBox rings. My love for rings has grown so much over the past year. 🙂 And Niwas tea light holder turned out to be the perfect place to store them! I love finding multiple uses for items and the tea light holder adds a little something special to my jewelry collection.

Florida Holiday Style (discount code)

 
    
 Finding out about new clothing brands is always so fun! Excited to share with you guys an Australian clothing brand called Ashleigh Taylor

Obsessed with this color; and the slit down the leg gives it that special something. The great thing about living in Florida is being able to wear cute dresses like this and not freeze your bum off. But this dress would also look gorgeous paired with a long jacket!
