Who is Monica Hill? In her own words, she's a "motivational momma living in Palm Beach, FL by way of CA, NYC, and Brazil.” As we look over all of her different looks on her website and instagram pages, yeah, we have to say that we feel pretty inspired! This Florida fashionista looks like she stepped out of a trendy urban beach catalog with her flowy dresses and breezy Latin American-inspired style blended with American street style. Her website, Glam by Moni, is filled to the brim with new look inspirations for warm weather, fashion advice and tips on how to grow your own presence as a digital influencer. She's about empowering women in general, after all, not just herself!
As much as we're inspired by Monica Hill's personal style, we're even more motivated by her personal story. Her instagram account (@iammonicahill) was hacked just a couple years ago, instantly taking away everything she'd built up over her initial years as a fashion influencer. But instead of letting that stop her, Hill got to work. In less than a year, she'd amassed hundreds of new posts and over 40,000 followers.
As Hill rises to the top, we're taking a closer look at her envy-worthy sense of style. Here are some of Monica's recent looks that have stood out to us the most:
Neutral Tone Polka-Dot Dress with Gold Jewelry
Overall, this look is pretty simple in nature. But whereas many people would already think this fit & flare polka dot dress was great on its own (and it is), Hill goes all in and glams it up with gold jewelry on both wrists and some dramatic eye makeup. It's a confident, even sultry look for going out in the evening, but throw a blazer over it and it'll work for a dolled-up workday outfit.
Sheer Top with Slit Flowy Midi Skirt
We are in love with both of the main pieces in this outfit! Hill pulls off the deep green midi skirt very well, but if you're not feeling that shade, opt for a lighter one for an even breezier look. Or, go with another dark hue (navy blue would also look awesome here) to keep that dramatic flare. And if you're feeling playful, definitely go for a side slit like Hill!
White Skinny Jeans with Cami, Sneakers and Baseball Cap
It's hard not to look at Hill's outfit here and scream "yes!" immediately. This is exactly the type of look we'd love to strut down the street in. While we absolutely love the neutral tone cami crop top, it's the white skinny jeans that really pop out here. And while it seems like the obvious choice would be to make them stand out even more with some dark contrast, Hill manages to make the whole look practically glow with her mostly white high top sneakers!
