Denim is such a great fabric for Spring – light, breezy, casual. I scored this denim romper for only $10 at TJMaxx, and it’s the perfect versatile option to dress up or dress down. I wore it to brunch at Morgan’s Miami (photos of our induglent mascarpone and raspberry stuffed french toast, chicken and waffle sandwiches, various tacos, and freshly baked made-to-order cookies can be seen here), but that’s another story… This beautiful and dainty necklace is by C. Alexandria, who sells her amazing handcrafted pieces in her etsy shop. I put together some similar denim romper options, most under $30! These can be worn with sandals or cute kicks, or dressed up with wedges and even the right blazer, making it a great evening outfit for Spring weather.

I’ve been rocking my Nicole Vienna watch nonstop – it goes with every outfit and is so chic and timeless. It’s the perfect accessory for day and night. I rocked it to brunch the other day, and then last night at an Art Basel event. It compliments any outfit and is understated, yet feminine and classy. Don’t forget, you get 15% OFF the entire website with the code GOCHIC. Such a perfect gift for the holidays!

You can’t go wrong with classic and timeless watches, which is why I fell so in love with this beautiful Nicole Vienna timepiece. Their Soir N° 79 Mesh style watch has a minimal design with just the right touch of glam and luxury.  I love the gold mesh bracelet, and the black marbled face dresses it up even more. The watch is made of high-quality stainless steel and effortlessly dresses up any outfit. The other amazing feature is that the strap is actually interchangeable, allowing you to customize the band with other options!  The best part for you, is the price is so great ($129), but you’ll also get 15% off your purchase with the code: GOCHIC. For a piece this stunning, it’s an amazing deal (and option for a holiday gift as we get closer to the season!).

You may have seen this floral off the shoulder top in this post, about my day in Barcelona eating at Flax & Kale and wandering La Boqueria. I’m linking to similar options below, and sharing where this gorgeous necklace is from! Lamara, the sweet owner of Ainkas Jewels, sent me this gorgeous “Dainty Initial Necklace” from her online shop before I left on my travels to Spain. It’s chic and delicate,  but still makes a statement! As for off the shoulder floral tops, here are a few stylish pieces you can rock for the rest of the summer:

I had such a fun day today eating and wandering with Barcelona blogger Nathalie from Cocoa and Buttons. We had lunch at Flax & Kale, an adorable and trendy organic/vegetarian restaurant here in Barcelona that I’ve been dying to try, and it definitely lived up to the hype! I got the Raw Superbowl, a newer menu item. It’s a salad with leafy greens, two types of hummus, zucchini tagliatelle with a turmeric pesto, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes with basil, red cabbage sauerkraut, and sprouts. It was SO delicious! Nathalie got the Supertagliatelle with spirulina, diced salmon, kale pesto and parmesan. We sat upstairs on the outdoor terrace, but the interior decor is also amazing – including their bathroom! (I’m linking similar off the shoulder tops in this blog post.) After Flax & Kale, we headed to La Boqueria in the Gothic Quarter area. It’s a huge open air market with fresh fruits,…

At the end of May, I departed sunny Florida on an 11-day journey to Europe – alone. Well, I wasn’t going to be completely “alone”, but I was traveling solo to Barcelona, where I would meet 38 other strangers and continue traveling together through Nice, Monaco, Cinque Terre, Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Rome, and Vatican City. I travel often and was itching to take an adventurous trip to explore more of Europe, but with the schedules and budgets of my friends, there’s not always a partner in crime to come along. So, I began researching tour group companies that focused on planned tours for my age range (18 to 35). I came across Contiki and remembered my friend did a tour to Greece last year with them and raved about it (more on this in a later post). After browsing through some more reviews, I was totally sold. I booked…
