Here to help you see-through it all…

The days are getting warmer, and yet, there’s no stopping me from layering up. Why would I throw on an extra item of clothing instead of strip down to a bikini top you may ask? For one, yes, I live in Miami but I don’t walk around in just a bikini top like it’s 1995. And secondly, it’s all about subtly adding dimension to an outfit in an interesting way. Enter the sheer sundress.

I was able to get my hands on this flowy number during Nasty Gal’s recent blow-out sale (RIP NASTY GAL 💔). A sheer dress is flirty, romantic, daring, and there are so many ways to style it. Did you see all the transparent variations on the SS17 runway? Designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Del Pozo, Saint Laurent, and Galliano are all about it. You name it, from chiffon and tulle over bralettes, denim+tee combos, mini-skirts to slip-dresses…all working to achieve a modern freshness without being crude. You can wear one over swimwear during the day, and then throw it on over an outfit to take you through the night. Have you tried the sheer look? Are you thinking about it but not sure how to wear it? Let me know, I’m here to help you…out of your comfort zone 😉

Wrap Me Up In Your Warm Light

04.11.17

jana rose carrero oj and cigs yesi flores simply lively editorial street style fashion photography miami inspiration golden hour 1111 Lincoln Road Herzog & de Meuron zara youngfrankk hands earrings

“Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.” – Horace Mann 

 

I learned about magic hour, or golden hour, in film school. It’s a phrase used to describe the fleeting moments shortly before sunset or immediately after sunrise, when the natural light is warm and yes, golden. These lighting conditions create beautiful shadow, texture, and depth in images, not to mention the overall feel is quite pleasant. If you scroll through the pics below you’ll notice Yesi and I happened to catch it in all its golden glory from the 1111 Lincoln Road building (architectural masterpiece by Herzog de Meuron). It was almost like the sky was on fire right before the sun fully set.

About the look, my day-to-day face is natural and dewy. I’ve been obsessed with glossy lids lately, and also this deep red lip in “Carnelian” by Aveda. Details on what I’m wearing are down below. Happy scrolling 🙂

The Walls Speak – Miami Street Art

04.04.17

The world is our runway…and our canvas too. 

photography & video shot and edited by Nelson Dellis | Nelson’s YouTube

Thanks to the prominent urban art scene in Puerto Rico I’ve been a fan of street art and murals ever since I was a kid. It’s like the walls are speaking a form of street poetry, if you will, and I’ve always felt a connection with it. A lot of people seem to feel this way as Wynwood – Miami’s prime art hub – has now become a major tourist attraction. The walls are covered in gargantuan, albeit beautiful works by established muralists from around the world. While I LOVE murals and consider it a positive form of community beautification, i can’t help but wonder about the smaller visual poets and painters (NOT to be confused with the tagging vandals). Where can their “voices” be heard? Enter abandoned factories and cavernous warehouses. It’s quite special to discover an old structure that was once bustling with life, now taken over almost post-apocalyptically by a mix of nature and aerosol. My friend Nelson and I shot this in Wynwood (points if you can guess where), and came across an artist trying to finish his artwork, while simultaneously swatting at bees. It was funny to see nature trying to reclaim this land, but I felt for the guy. He was just trying to finish his little mural in peace.
Fashion may take a bit of a back seat in this post, because I sort of wanted to blend in with this magical place. I hope you like it! Scroll down for photos and outfit details <3

Dancing With Myself

03.14.17

oj and cigs jana rose carrero yesi flores simply lively glow fashion photography miami street style blog blogger south beach art deco

Even when I go a bit darker with my style (the city girl in me), I’ll find myself drawn back to color to mix things up every now and then (the island girl in me). We found this amazing little vacant building tucked away in a residential non-touristy area of South Beach to serve as the perfect backdrop for capturing movement in the warm golden light of the setting sun. It almost looks like we took a little road trip to the Keys, doesn’t it? As of late, I’ve had this thing for sparkly sheer shirts and love how this one shimmers in that 5pm natural glow. Nothing like closing your eyes and dancing with your shadow to put you in a good mood…and sure, maybe a few curious passersby shelling out words of praise/encouragement to make you feel a little less weird LOL.

PS – This look is pre-haircut. I’m a little backed up on content, so bear with me while I catch up! Meanwhile you can keep up with me on Instagram <3

A Nod To Mod

03.02.17

On 1960s Mod…

Short for the word “modernist, “mod” is an umbrella term for a subculture that began in 1960s United Kingdom and spread to other countries through fashion, art, music, and pop culture. The word itself referred to men who listened to modernist jazz, most notably correlating with the beatnik culture of the time. It’s really difficult to define it all in just a few sentences, as the trajectory and evolution of “mod” is pretty far-reaching, but fashion-wise, it was sort of the antithesis to the uber feminine “poodle-skirts” style that preceded it…Cue bold colorways, mini-skirts, and short bob haircuts à la Vidal Sassoon (side note – peep my Instagram for my new ‘do!). I urge you to read up on what the trusty Wikipedia has to say because everything about this period is pretty interesting.

I quite like this unintentionally-mod look I whipped up and how Yesi so artfully captured it around the streets of Downtown Miami. Perhaps I was subconsciously inspired by the book I’m reading, “Grace” (the legendary Grace Coddington’s memoir), which has taken me on the coolest fashion journey stemming back decades. I dig it.
