Sparkling Sunlit Sky - Coral Gables

Hey there Readers!

It's been a few weeks since my last post... I've been busy getting things ready for the holiday season. Not to mention exploring a bunch of places in South Florida. Which means I have TONS of photos to edit and share, (yay!)

This past Sunday I went to the Sunlit Sky art installation in Coral Gables. It's in the same area of Giralda Plaza as the Umbrella Sky Project was this summer, and made by the same people. Only this time, instead of colorful umbrellas hanging above the courtyard, it's thousands of silver and gold tinsel.

With the holiday season in full swing, this is the perfect time to go see it. As the tinsel reminds me of shiny garland people use to decorate their Christmas tree. Or even the confetti that comes down at the start of the new year. But, if you're like me and like to visit the Everglades, it also looks like a shinier version of the River of Grass. Whatever their inspiration was, Sextafeira did a great job.

That morning I was a bit stressed about putting together a cute enough outfit...

Fall and winter weather in Florida always confuses me. It goes from being chilly at night, to warm during the day, but you can still feel the cool breeze in the shade. With the help of my new Amazon Echo Look, I was able to transition a summery top to a more fall #ootd.

The Look helped me choose which jeans would look best with my top and boots combo by using the Style Check feature in the app. It considers factors like current trends, fit, color, and style to give you the best recommendation. Honestly, it was SO HELPFUL. Plus it has all the same "Alexa" features as the regular Echo devices, with the added bonus of a camera to take photos and videos of your daily look. 
Below is a screenshot of my Style Check as I was getting ready!

Ok now onto my outfit details!

Happy Holidays!
