These days the Wynwood Miami area is bursting at the seams. There’s no denying that what once was a haven for boutique art galleries, quiet walks, and locals-only bars, has now become over-flooded with tourists, construction, scenesters and ‘young urban professionals’ checking out the new happenin’ restaurants and bars. Thankfully one thing has managed to stay the same, and that’s the fact that the entire neighborhood serves as a canvas for artists who flock here from all over the world to paint huge outdoor murals. Wynwood Arts District has led and continues to lead Miami’s art renaissance, making the city known for something other than night clubs and beaches. So whenever I need to feel inspired or am looking for an artful release, I drive/walk around the neighborhood skillfully zig-zagging tourists to get my fill of street art that I love so much.  In the distance I hear a faint, “I don’t get it, what’s so great about all this ‘graffiti’ on the walls?” <my heart breaks>

psy·che (/sīkē/) – is the totality of the human mind, conscious and unconscious. The mind, soul, or spirit, as opposed to the body.

Many like to joke about how hard it is “to fathom the female psyche,” but you know what? You don’t have to understand it, because women are forever evolving, doing great things and just making ish* happen. That’s why I’m stoked to collaborate with two empowering brands that are all about women and the beauty of imagination, creation. Psyche, whose motto is “imagination is the most valuable thing in the world,” is a handmade jewelry line from Brooklyn spearheaded by girlboss designer Nina Berenato. Combine these thoughtful, beautiful accessories with Swedish Hasbeens‘ clogs from their latest collection, which just so happens to be inspired by the powerful women of the 80s (i.e. Grace Jones, Vivienne Westwood, Debbie Harry, the strong women of Helmut Newton’s photography) –  and you’ve got a recipe for radness.

Minty freshness and a modern minimalist approach to dressing. Style Mafia’s Costa Top is a cool take on the band leader meets chef jacket. Button it all the way up or leave a few undone for a more relaxed look. This plus a pair of comfy Supergas and you’re good to go from day to night, cuz haven’t you heard? Sneakers is the Word. #ComfortIsKing

A look that raises the bar. That’s what we’ve hoped to accomplish here through the use of movement, curves, and clean detail shots. Experimenting with fluid jumps was quite fun, along with playing off of this building’s wavelike surfaces – almost as if the architecture mimics the top’s structured ruffles or vice versa. If you want to feel my flow, I suggest you shop Style Mafia for all this newness ASAP. Oh, and two things: please excuse my crazy outgrown roots in these images. They’ve been fixed since. And secondly, a fun fact – this building is actually a strip clup in Miami’s MiMo District. Thumbs up for strip clubs keeping it classy with their exteriors!

Summer in Miami Calle Ocho Style

One hot Miami summer day, Yesi and I headed to the iconic “Calle Ocho” (Eighth Street) in Little Havana, the heart of the Cuban exile community. This area is full of life, Latin music pouring out of storefronts, walls lined with nostalgic murals, gentlemen playing congas out on the sidewalk, and of course – a domino park. It’s easy for me to feel at home here because it reminds me so very much of Puerto Rico…

We walked into the Cuba Ocho Art Center to treat ourselves to an 11am mojito (a REAL one) cuz YOLO, when the bartender suggested we check out the back garden. Sure enough, it was like a beautiful oasis out of an old film…the fountain, the plants, old furniture. I wanted to stay there forever.

After sweating out our mojitos with a leisurely stroll, we decided to refuel with delicious ice cream from Azucar Ice Cream Shop, which is popular for its evocative flavors like mango, sweet plantain and even Cuban coffee. I went for the raspberry and mango cuz at this point I was a sweaty monster looking for anything refreshing and fruity, ya feel me?! So what are your fave Calle Ocho spots? Do you have any recommendations?
