Pink in Paradise

Set your mind at rest, wear that pink dress…

I never thought I’d own much pink, but it’s made its way into my wardrobe lately and I’m enjoying it. As you may have noticed, ultra feminine looks are not really my main go-to, which is why I always kind of off-set it with either sneakers or boots or some unexpected element to toughen it up a bit…That’s where these Tevas come in.

I loved shooting here, and the juxtaposition of the colors – pink, gray, blue. Speaking of pinks and grays, I’ve been experimenting with different shampoos, from silver to pastel pink, so my hair is all sorts of different hues. Been wearing it sort of wavy lately too, for that just-out-of-the-shower fresh look. Hope you like these pics, and stay tuned! I’ve got more stuff on the way that I’m really excited about. In the meantime, scroll all the way down for outfit details, and follow me on Instagram ❤️

Sheer Madness: How To Wear a See-Through Dress

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 article 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 😉

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

Flashes in the Night

01.16.17

oj and cigs jana rose carrero simply lively yesi flores miami street style fashion blog blogger editorial wynwood flash night photography

Three cheers for Capricorn season! Today, January 16th,  is not only one of my all time favorite singers and female icons Sade’s birthday, it’s also a day that commemorates one of history’s key figures’ birthday, Martin Luther King, Jr. (observed on the third Monday of every January in honor of his January 15th birthday). I leave you with a set of pictures Yesi and I shot one evening playing around with flash, in which I am wearing a Sade shirt by Deer Dana and my treasured All Saints leather jacket (full credits all the way at the bottom of this post). Follow on Instagram for more stuff on the daily!
