It's My Anniversary: Ms. Style & Grace Turns 5!


Do you know what today is?? It's My 5th Anniversary and I couldn't be prouder of Ms. Style & Grace. It's been amazing to see the growth of my blog and share this journey with you all. As I've mentioned before, I did something special for my 5year anniversary. It's been a long time since I've been in front of the camera so I decided to do a photo-shoot to commemorate this special milestone. Special thanks to my amazing photographer Laura Metzler, Rent The Runway for my beautiful outfits and most importantly my two girlfriends Ashlee & Brittany for assisting with the shoot. 
Check out a few Behind-The-Scene pics below: 


















What a fun day! I've been doing some party planning because of course with another blog anniversary there has to be a celebration, stay tuned for details are coming very soon and I'll be announcing a very big surprise so stay tuned for that as well. As of lately, I've been on bed rest due to me being ill (my apologies for the lack of posts) but with a few more days of rest I'll be sure to keep you all informed on the Anniversary Party. Thank you for your patience and following my blog, it means so much to me! Happy 5th Birthday to Ms. Style & Grace, big things are poppin'!

RECAP: Urban Sweetheart Product Photo-Shoot

So much is happening (all good things) lately, I needed to take some time last weekend to myself to process it all. I'm so happy to announce that I styled my first product shoot for Urban Sweetheart two weeks ago and it was a major success. My high school friend is amazingly talented and with our creative energy we styled an amazing shoot together. Her boutique features women's sunglasses, purses, shoes, bags, accessories and clothing. The photo-shoot took place in Georgetown at this amazing studio (which I love), so without further delay check out the product shoot I styled for Urban Sweetheart below:

CHIC OF THE WEEK: 2015 Spring Edition!

Happy 1st Day of Spring, it's currently cloudy and snowy in the DMV area but I have high hopes that 2015 will be full of sunshine! This week a few of my favorite Style Icons graced us with some impeccable Spring fashion that makes me want the weather to warm up so I can wear bright colors, light jackets and sandals. Winter was pretty brutal this time around so I wouldn't mind Spring showing up RIGHT NOW, anyway take a look of the hottest looks of the week:
 
 
Jennifer Lopez never disappoints, how amazing is this one piece? Sheer + Sequins = Perfection!

 
Fab-Mommy, Gwen Stefani always keeps us on our toes. I love this polka-dot dress, chic and yet effortless at the same time.

 
Rita Ora glammed it up in this red gown and I love it. Red is definitely her color!

 
Joan Smalls looks effortless and oh so comfortable in this sheer top and white jeans with leopard sandals. Did I mention how obsessed I am with finding outfits that comfortable yet sexy?! Great look for her and anyone looking for that perfect mix of sexy yet comfy!

 
Stacy Keibler is glowing and the zipper detail on her dress has me swooning!

 
Zoe Kravitz is my style crush of the moment. How amazing does she look?! I love the high/low detail.

 
Roxie Nafousi was sheer perfection, I'm in love with this whole look!!!

 
The MVP of the week goes to FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. She looked fabulous in this colorful Kenzo dress, she looks like she is ready for Spring!!
 
 
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!! Happy Spring!!

BESTI-CATION: Miami Is Always A Good Idea!


Travel Swag: Leather jacket by Zara (old)/ Grey Midi dress by Zara (old)/Converse sneakers/Gucci bag/Vintage sunnies/

I've been a little MIA, literally and figuratively...every now then you need to get away for a long weekend with your girlfriends just to relax and enjoy yourself. I'd like to call this trip my besti-cation, here are few of my favorite moments from my trip! This was exactly what I needed to give me the jolt of energy I longed for and perspective that I've been wanting. The weather was perfect and more importantly my company was a delight, check out my besti-cation below:
 
All Dressed Up in White: Bandeau Bralet by Miss Guided/ Thigh High Split Maxi Skirt by Miss Guided/ Jimmy Choo sandals (old)/ Earrings by BEBE (old)/ Rings & bracelets (gifted)/
 
First night out in Miami required some glam, so I dressed the part. My inspiration came from Kim Kardashian as she wore a similar outfit like this a few months ago, I loved the simplicity yet glam of it all and the price point for this outfit was right up my alley. I'm obsessed with white for some reason, every excuse to wear it...I wear it lol! 


 
We stayed at the beautiful and luxurious, Fontainebleu Miami Beach which was all but of PERFECTION. I definitely recommended it to everyone I know, it's all the hype and worth every penny.

 
The girls!



Dinner & cocktails at Prime 112 was delicious and a great start to an amazing trip!
 
 
By Sunday it was....BRUNCH TIME! I pulled out my new sunnies (gifted by my bestie), I'm super obsessed with these. How chic are these?


If you've never been to Yard Bird in Miami, you're missing out on the best Southern meal of your life! I split this meal with the table and still we weren't able to completely finish it. The chicken was amazing and the spiced watermelon was delicious, definitely a staple for me! #BrunchIsASport
 

Resting Brunch Face.
 
 
I love a good maxi, this one is my current crush of the moment. It's bright and colorful and very comfortable, I got it from a boutique in my neighborhood. I want Spring to get to the DMV so bad!

Beach Babe: Bikini top & bottom by Mint Swim/ Sunnies by Zara(old)/Body chain by Aldo (similar found here)/

I've been wanting to wear this swimsuit for a while now, so glad I got the chance wear it in Miami. Kudos to Draya for making me feel so sexy in this knitted bikini, I loved the fit and how comfortable it was. I've become the 'comfy is sexy type of girl' now so I appreciated a bikini!
 

Captain East Coast: Swimsuit by StampdLA/
 
Then there was Monday....Everyone knows my obsession with the Kardashians, so you should know that I was inspired by Khloe with this outfit. I'll admit it, I stole her entire look up to the captain hat (it's not as fancy as hers lol). I loveeee a good one piece and this was perfect plus the whole "EAST COAST" written across the swimsuit was perfect. I rep my coast so hard, had to do it while I was in the South! You like?



Pool side AND getting sun kissed with my girls!
 

 
I couldn't resist stopping at Prime Italian for their signature fried oreos, it's soooo yummy! Tastes like a slice of heaven, tell them I sent you.


 
Nikki Beach lovin! Sun does a body good!

 
For our last night in Miami we decided to go to Sugar Factory for dinner & drinks. We were not disappointed, I love their innovative drinks and the food was delicious too.

 
Morning walks on the beach....


 
messy hair, sunnies and tan lines in a bikini is by far the best way to bring in St. Patrick's Day!

 
Watermelon water...OMG amazing!
 
 
 I'm a water baby so being at the beach everyday was my favorite part of vacation! Miami is always a good idea, thank God for the sun and beautiful friends!
