We had a cold front come through Miami last week and let me tell you…it was a harsh reminder to appreciate our warm weather and enjoy it…always. Even when we’re soaked in sweat because the humidity is 150%. Naturally, after the two day winter passed, I couldn’t wait to get back into my short dresses and sandals. Amazing what a couple of 50 degree nights will do to a Miami gal (if you’re rolling your eyes at me, I don’t blame you). I ran to my local Intermix and picked this beautiful silk dress from Equipment. It’s the perfect springboard to Spring…see what I did there? I love the soft design, the beautiful pastel hues and the ease of wearing silk. Seriously…if it’s not cotton or silk, I’m not sure I want to wear it anymore. Somehow you just feel better in natural fabrics…or is that just me being the epitome of a Princess? Continue reading →
I told you guys here that Sam & Lavi would be a label that was going to start showing up more in my closet rotation and sure enough…here it is up on the blog again. There’s something so easy and chic about this ensemble. The pants are silky smooth and the top is full shoulder and cropped…a perfect combo in my book. Sam & Lavi is definitely LA born but the label works beautifully with Miami’s winter weather. Both items will get a lot of use individually (especially the pants) and in my opinion, they’ve got quite a bit of longevity with their style. Not so trendy that you won’t use them next season but trendy enough to be on point with their cut and fit. Continue reading →
Hey babies…finding dresses that work with my long torso is super tough. Often times, the waistline hits much higher than it should making most dresses look super short on me…which would be okay but depending on the cut, it can look like I’m wearing a kid’s size. Anyway, flash forward to this dress from Vanessa Bruno’s Athé line…yes, it’s short and it could probably hit a little lower on the waist BUT I love it. It’s fun, flirty and the embroidered print is such a great mix of colors. It’s a very easy dress to enjoy and wear. Perfect for a day time lunch in Wynwood. I paired it with my little suede booties to give it a little more bohemian vibe although this dress would also look great with ballet flats for a more Parisian look. If I was going to anything like SxSW or Austin City Limits, I would probably take this little number along for the ride. Continue reading →
It’s amazing how much you change as a person when you become a parent. For example, the kind of gifts that I usually asked the hubby for were pretty Princess typical.
My usual “go-to” list was always something shiny, something blingy, something spa like and/or something bubbly.
And obviously that’s not to say that I don’t LOVE those things anymore (I do!), it’s just to say that other things moved rapidly up the list…like this Babboe cargo bike for example.
I saw it a couple months ago on Instagram and I kept telling the hubby that I wanted it for me and Mia. You know, so we could ride it to the beach, to the farmers’ market, to the playground…basically all over Miami Beach.
Well, the hubby did good and ordered the bike for us and after 6 weeks of waiting, it arrived.
Straight from Holland via Orange Pedal Bikes in Wynwood.
And yes, it’s not as shiny and sparkly as some other things I love, but it’s every bit as fabulous. Wouldn’t you agree?
I had a belated birthday lunch with my bestie last week and he took me out for a fabulous lunch and gifted me with this beautiful box from Body Rock Scrubs. He obviously knows me very well so I knew that what this little red box contained HAD to be good.
I was wrong…the products aren’t good, they’re amazing! You guys know by now that I’m an organic/natural/healthy type of gal so I love anytime that I can incorporate good quality products into my life that not only enhance my well being but also look/feel/smell beautiful too.
The packaging was very simple and perfectly appropriate for the vibe of everything inside the box. A little rustic but very beautiful and chic.
I’m not going to NYFW…frankly, my schedule nor my warm Miami blood could handle it but that doesn’t mean that I’m not super excited to see all the latest trends popping up on my feeds. There will be a ton (more like a million) bloggers there covering the shows, sharing their picks and of course, posing for the photographers. They’re all waiting to be snapped for the coveted “street fashion” shots that will be published in magazines and websites worldwide.
I’m not gonna lie…seeing your picture in a respected publication is really a big deal so I totally understand why people work to perfect their look just for the photographers outside the shows. One good snap can make a big push in your numbers, readership and of course, your personal brand.
Anyway, the point to this is IS…if I was going to pull an outfit for NYFW, it would probably look a lot like this.
Fact: my husband doesn’t understand fashion like this. He was throughly concerned as to why I loved a “shapeless” dress so much. Clearly he doesn’t get “it”. When I saw this dress, I knew it HAD to come home with me. The effortless cut, the fun print and the short sexy hemline…I mean, it’s a win-win-win if you ask me. There’s something very fresh about wearing a dress that’s not meant to be hugging your every curve. A dress that moves and bounces with your walk and doesn’t constrict you. It’s so easy to wear yet I feel very feminine and chic in it. I know I can always count on you babies to get “it”….right?
If you don’t know me, let me clue you in a bit…I love a lot of fancy, French things…and it doesn’t stop with just clothing and perfumes. It spills over (not figuratively of course because I would hate to spill anything) into the world of wine and champagnes. I’m a notorious rosé drinker.
It’s absolutely the best thing to sip on while soaking in the Miami sun or enjoying a sunset cruise or sitting on the beach or while having lunch at the Standard. Any time, any place. Rosé is just a great choice.
Well, if you’re like me (yay!) then you’ll love what’s happening at the fab Edition hotel next weekend….it’s a festival for, you guessed it, rosé! La nuit en rosé is making a stop in Miami and you can be part of it!
Tickets start at just $65 and obviously that’s an amazing price for the caliber of wineries that will be participating. I’ll be there on Saturday day but the event starts Friday night with a VIP opening and continues through Sunday day.

For starters, let’s just say that the title “Walk Like an Egyptian” never really made any sense to me…but walking like a Parisian, well, that makes absolutely perfect sense to any fashion loving girl.
The Parisian women have the “it” factor while keeping it simple.
Three things I’ve found can help you achieve this look: black, flats and Chanel.
You always can tell Parisian women because they’re not done up in flashy and bling. They’re simple, understated but always, always chic. This is my best attempt at pulling in some of that French inspiration as a Miami girl. It’s a simple but everyday look that not only makes you feel girly and polished but also ready for just about any place you’re heading to. Continue reading →
Hey babies…well, here we are in a brand spanking new year. I spent the last two weeks sick with the flu which was definitely NOT the way I had planned to spend my holidays but I can’t complain because today, January 2nd, was my birthday and I didn’t feel sick, I didn’t feel congested and I certainly didn’t feel like staying inside and “resting”. I felt like being outside, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying the beginning of 2015. So that’s exactly what I did…I enjoyed my day…from start to blog post ;)
And it was a perfect day. We started my birthday with a beautiful morning at Burr’s Berry Farm and picked more strawberries than we know what to do with. I mean, I could make you all jam and I’d still have leftover berries. Doing this with my family was just as sweet as it sounds. Deliciously sweet. Continue reading →
