Pretty in Pink, Just a Tad Blue

Head in the clouds…feet on the ground. 

 

I’d like to think that I’m a dreamer, but not the super distracted kind (the Capricorn in me would never let me get away with that). Let me explain. I live it up (cuz YOLO) – tattoos, skydiving, roller coasters. I’m also obsessed with movies, books, paintings that most people find ‘out there’ or too depressing. I tend to empathize with tormented artists, and sometimes wish I lived in a Fellini, Godard, or Sofia Coppola film. I like to daydream about traveling to every tropical destination on the planet. And one of the best compliments I could ever receive is being called creative. But at the end of the day…I won’t throw all caution to the wind, no matter how much I’d ever want to. I wish I could be happy not giving a damn about material things or comfort, and I sort of envy people who can be free (in every $en$e of the word), who can drop everything to travel the world and live life not thinking about stress or what others think of them. By the same token, I remind myself that a lot of what we see on social media, is what others want us to see (#perceptions). We don’t even know what’s real or staged! So for the sake of transparency, I admit my life is this thing made up contradictions: fraught with insecurities and a touch of pride, ADHD tendencies peppered with OCD, and yes, paying off debt while balancing a mean shopping habit. But the contradiction that I am actually totally okay with is being somewhat of a creative cynic who’s fond of dreaming and escapism, yet totally aware of the realness of LIFE. And like my very pink sweatshirt says, “THANK YOU,” for listening/reading/escaping/thinking with me.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry BOMB! Do you guys remember that song by The Runaways? Anyways, this cherry-red bomber jacket by Valfre is pretty amazing. I love the detail on the back and the color just pops, especially on a gloomy day. Yesi and I shot these photos at City View Garage in the Miami Design District, one of the coolest parking garages in Miami (the other one is 1111 Lincoln Road). With a distinctive exterior designed by renowned architects and artists, this garage’s colorful Dr. Seuss-like rooftop was sure to work well with my Valfre jacket and this cloudy day. I’ve even featured the colorful floor on my Instagram before, and many have asked for the exact address, so here you go: NE 38th between NE 1st Ave + North Miami Ave. But be warned, if you don’t have permission to shoot here and you go with a professional camera or changes of clothing, you will get kicked out…like us, shortly after these photos were taken hahaha

The perfect black magic outfit… here’s an easy all black look using timeless elements that never go out of style, complete with another pair of Birkenstocks (see my previous all white ensemble with white Birks here). I’m donning a button down vintage fringe top (that can be worn either frontwards, backwards or as a vest) paired with faux leather pants. So what do you think of this look? Black and white are my favorite colors, and like the saying goes, I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.

I leave you with a little Birkenstock inspiration…
