Mission: to find beauty in unexpected places…

The outfits, they just happen.

Being the fans of exploring that we are, Yesi and I drive up to this crumbling building, a structure that was probably once full of life, and I can’t help but wonder what happened. I walk up to a little window for a peek, the crunch of broken glass under my pink Pumas.

Everything is covered in grass and green.

Do you ever stop and wonder?

Mellow Yellow, a Brief History – It’s Bananas

The “mellow yellow” low-down…

Summer may be coming to an end, but I’m loving this vibrant purchase from Zara (despite the recent flack the chain is getting for its fast-fashion ways). Now as far as the color yellow is concerned, there really is nothing mellow about it, am i right? It’s a bright, happy shade often associated with glory and harmony. So where did the phrase “mellow yellow” come from? Flashback to 1966, Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan tops the charts with this groovy hit. Here’s the kicker – the song makes reference to vibrators, yes, vibrators. Donovan confirms this in an interview, “It <the song> is about being cool, laid-back, and also the electrical bananas that were appearing on the scene – which were ladies’ vibrators.”

“They call me mellow yellow…

Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase”

I am so happy that people are embracing relaxed fits and new proportions, (enter Cos Stores), these days because I’m all about it. Breathable and flowy, this wide A-line dress works for any body type and is just easy and lightweight. Plus, give me a loose blob of fabric to wear and I’ll take that over a tight frock any day. I’ve been wearing this necklace a lot, also by Cos Stores, and love it because I feel like it makes any outfit a little more interesting. I should warn you, I’ll be sharing a lot by, you guessed it, Cos Stores, only because I’ve been lusting after this brand forever and finally got a chance to visit the Soho store in NYC. Safe to say I got carried away 🙊. And no, this is not a sponsored post, but if anyone from the brand is reading, Hi I love you 😂.

Elevated Basics for the Modern Minimalist

The Modern Minimalist…anything but basic.

I am on this modern minimalist streak as of late, and am very drawn to simple design elements and elevated basics, so when I threw on this shapeless t-shirt dress, I instinctively went with interestingly-shaped accessories and Teva flatforms (which, trust me, i know aren’t for everyone 😊). To be honest, I used to recoil at the sight of Tevas, but the styling gods have helped me see these things sandals for what they really are: little strappy pillows with a sporty/fashion-forward appeal. They’re SO comfortable; I gotta know how to rock these somehow, right? RIGHT 😅?! But I digress… I see this modern minimalist approach to fashion as understated, stripped down and effortlessly cool. Thoughts?

Miami Beach EDITION x THE STAYCATIONERS

08.12.16

Take me away…on a staycay.

When Taste The Style‘s travel editorial series THE STAYCATIONERS comes a-knocking, you say HELL YES. And that’s exactly what I did as I met up with STAYCATIONERS queen, Céline, and Christina of Le City Kitty for this fabulous day at The Miami Beach EDITION. Scroll through as I take you on a tour, captured through the lens of the talented Yesi (aka Simply Lively).

First thing’s first, a little bubbly courtesy of Perrier-Jouët to get the festivities started before the lovely ladies of 1821salon came through to tame these humidity-stricken tresses with none other than Bumble and Bumble goodies (Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil is my fave). We quickly slipped into the most flattering swimsuits and cozy coverups by Cosabella. Then it was on to the pool…

After a few bubbly-induced giggles and cabana-lounging we ventured around the lushly landscaped pools and made our way to The Sandbox. Yep – the most perfect secluded tropical nook complete with hammocks and daybeds. The EDITION knows how to set the stage for ultimate relaxation. No mid-day snoozing though! Because it was on to THE MOST DELICIOUS dinner and cocktails at Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Matador Room, but not before freshening up and changing into this head-turning white hot Style Mafia number ❤️

After our proper chow-down at Matador Room, it was time to get-down…

…to the basement. Basement Miami, that is. What can I say other than this place is a sensory DELIGHT. Bar, club, bowling alley and ice-skating (yes, you read right, ice-skating). This is a must-go. Our friend Alexandra of Spur of the Moments joined us to complete our ultimate girl squad.

Wouldn’t be a staycation without a little jumping-on-the-bed action though, and that included some candy that may or may not have been tossed in the air…sweet ending to the sweetest staycay with THE STAYCATIONERS.
