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.

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!

Old Year Things, New Year Thoughts

People have different reasons for hating the past year, ranging from socio-political to pop-cultural. As for me, well, it’s been a mix of high highs and one major low. I should start by recognizing that 2016 was great to me in the travel and work category, and for that I am forever thankful. I also got back into practicing Hot Yoga; made it to Cuba and Hawaii; was cast in a national campaign; went to Gov Ball Music Fest, Halloween Horror Nights and Islands of Adventure (SO MUCH YES); collaborated with people I admire; and fostered new meaningful friendships. On Thanksgiving Eve though, ironically enough, that all faded from view…My world fell apart upon receiving news that I had lost my 16-month-old French Bulldog, Rocky, in a tragic (and totally preventable) accident under a dog-sitter’s supervision. Although I’ve lost extended family members and also family pets (which Mom handled while I was away in college), nothing has hit this close to home. Nothing has ever felt like this. I’ve spent the past four weeks – a time usually marked by holiday joy and inner peace – feeling extreme stress, sadness, and anger. Trying to manage & understand my grief while juggling important birthdays (SO MANY DECEMBER BIRTHDAYS), family time, and work has not been easy. I’ve had to learn that grief comes in waves…The waves may be really tall, and while they won’t ever stop crashing, they will come further apart. 

All that being said, I’ve recently taken up meditation (thank you Headspace app) and am trying to savor every little moment with our other precious Frenchie, Romy, Rocky’s littermate. We got them together, and yes they were inseparable. She is suffering a bit from separation anxiety but at least her depression has somewhat subsided and she’s eating again. We’re thinking about getting her a buddy at some point soon. Also, I am committed to writing & reading more, and vow to leave no book I start unfinished (i’m looking at you, stack-of-books on my night stand). There are a few other things I’ve got engraved in my mind for 2017, but my friends over at Disfunkshion Magazine pretty much sum it all up in this powerful and inspiring piece you should def read. What did you love/hate about 2016? What are you hoping for in the year to come? The first day of the new year is also my first day as a 31-year-old, so I better start it off right, right? See you on the flip side, and don’t be shy, say Hi
