Recap of Florida’s Finest + What I Wore to the Barack Obama Fundraising Event

Good Morning ALL!! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I know I had a great time! As we all know last week I was Spring Breaking it and had a week full of Florida guest bloggers! I want to first start off by saying Thank you to each and every one of the ladies who participated in the guest blogger series. I adore each and every one of you and your blogs.

Each lady brought something different to the table. Let’s start off withΒ Sche of Curves and Confidence! She killed it with the three ways to wear a maxi skirt. After reading everyone’s comments I think we would all agree that the third look was all of our favorites and I know we all will be trying out this look. Then we had the lovely Kerissa of A Diva Mom’s JourneyΒ who rocked an A line skirt which she paired with a cute camisole and cardigan. The look was very classic and chic. On Monday the lovely India of IfreeNaturally shared her journey that focused on her transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. She received great feedback from readers as well as friends. Next, Shanequa of Fashion Pad rocked a body con striped midi skirt. She was cool and casual! Wednesday’s guest blogger is my fellow USF Alumni Ariel of Fashion Devotee. I was first drawn to her patterned tights!! They were so unique and flowed well with the rest of her ensemble. Thursday’s guest blogger is also another fellow USF Alumni Jennifer of Chic Desire. SheΒ wrote about rocking denim different ways which was great because I have been meaning to try out this trend! To end out the work week we had Shalonda of Candy Coated Cashmere to show us what she wears on Friday’s at work. I loved those pants!! To start the weekend off we had Dionne of The Prissy Shopper share with us a few purses that she had recently purchased. They were so cute. My favorite purse was the purple and pink one! Last but not least, the lovely Jillian of NuSophisticateΒ closed out the guest blog series mixing prints. Loved the polka dots and leopard mix. Will definitely have to try that out as well.

So there you have it folks. Thank you all for the support that you gave these ladies throughout the week. The RT’s on Twitter and sharing of posts on Facebook was so sweet. They really appreciated it!

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending a Fundraiser for Barack Obama that was hosted by Hope: Young and Powerful group here in Miami, Florida. The event was held in the Design District at CafeIna Lounge. It was such a cute venue. I tried to take pictures inside of the place but the lighting was not agreeing with my camera so I just gave up on taking pictures of the venue. Overall it was a great event for such a great cause. If you would like to make a donation to help Obama’s Campaign click here. Below are pictures of what I wore to the event!

Dress:Forever 21/Shoes:OLD,Nine West/Clutch and Bracelet:Forever 21/Earrings:Thierry-Accessories

I knew that the event was semi-dressy so I opted for wearing one of my favorite dresses that I bought a Forever 21 about two years ago.Β I love the colors and how it fits me. I usually wear my nude heels with it but I decided to wear my gold and tan Nine West heels with it. I purchased these in 2007 and believe it or not I have only worn them maybe two or three times, including last Thursday. They are very comfortable so that is probably why I never parted with them. To complete my look I just added some cute earrings I recently purchased from Thierry, a cute Forever 21 cuff bracelet and yellow bow clutch!

Thanks for your support and I hope you all have a delightful Monday!

XoXo,

Ashley
