Dancing With Myself

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.

Cozy Gal Denim Double Down

Cozy keeps me sane, so I’m down for comfy cool looks and double denim all the way. Lately I’ve had sneakers on heavy rotation (THESE NIKES ARE FREAKIN MAGICAL), and lots of hats, because I find bangs and hats go well together (who knew). Also, did you know Opening Ceremony and ESPRIT dropped a designer collab collection? That’s where the pants are from, AND they still have several pieces available on sale! You’re welcome. I have another cool Downtown look coming up, plus I’m prepping for a trip back to the motherland (Puerto Rico) so stay tuned…I may or may not be changing the hair. Catch me if you can, on the ‘gram.

Downtown Rainy Day Champion in Stutterheim

01.27.17

Who loves a good rainy day? This girl right here. Rainy days are perfect for catching up on the dozens of VICELAND shows on my DVR (Ugh I love that channel). Rainy days also get the creative juices flowing, and put me in this super productive mood where I rid myself of any guilt for spending the whole day indoors working on the computer. <Does anyone else relate to that feeling?> Another interesting thing I’ve noticed about rainy days in a bustling city is that it relaxes me to walk in stormy weather if I’m dressed and ready for the occasion, which usually involves a sturdy, flip-proof umbrella and Hunter rain boots. It’s just comforting to feel protected while braving the elements. But, oddly enough, I’ve never owned a rain coat. Enter the generous folks from Swedish rainwear brand, Stutterheim, whose motto is “Swedish Melancholy At Its Driest.” They had me at ‘Swedish’ (and probably ‘Melancholy,’ cuz I’m moody af). Swedish brands usually always get it right though…construction, aesthetics, form and function. And this coat is so awesome, it makes me wish it rained more in Miami. Scroll down for full outfit credits and to see more moody pics of my Downtown evening stroll.

Flashes in the Night

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!
