Sweater Weather

Baby it’s cold outside! Or at least it should be. I have to admit living in Florida has its perks: beautiful beaches, sunny days, and an endless stream of perfectly bronzed men parading around. Ok that last part may not be entirely true, but a girl can dream. The weather is ideal for light layering and a cozy sweater is the best answer for chilly temperatures. As a fanatic for fall clothing, I will make the most of “Florida’s winter” by donning my favorite sweaters every chance I get. Need a little inspiration? Check out my picks for my favorite sweaters.

Blog Spotter: Michelle Almonor of Fashilluminous

Nothing makes me more giddy (yes, I said giddy) than meeting new people and making new friends. I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Almonor, a student at the University of South Florida, at the recent ‘Metamorphosis’ fashion show hosted by The Fashion Executives. Almonor is the president of TFE, an organization at USF, that focuses on assisting emerging designers and boutiques in the Tampa Bay area with events and branding. When she’s not planning TFE events, serving on the executive board of Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed professional business fraternity, and nailing down covetable internship opportunities, Almonor is investing her heart and soul in her fashion blog, Fashilluminous.
