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

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.

Downtown Rainy Day Champion in Stutterheim

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.

Walking on Broken Glass

Mission: to find beauty in unexpected places…

The outfits, they just happen.

Being the fans of exploring that we are, Yesi and I drive up to this crumbling building, a structure that was probably once full of life, and I can’t help but wonder what happened. I walk up to a little window for a peek, the crunch of broken glass under my pink Pumas.

Everything is covered in grass and green.

Do you ever stop and wonder?
