EFFORTLESS STATE OF MIND






Exactly fourteen days ago I turned twenty-eight. Sounds like a big number but I feel younger than ever! This birthday was a major milestone in my life. I can finally say I’m on the right path; I'm confident of who I am, what I want to do, and where I want to go.

It’s not easy to get to this state of mind, I’ve had many struggles along the way but they all serve their purpose. Growing up is quite interesting and beautiful, we have absolutely no clue of how to handle life situations but things always find a way to fall in place.

How do you style a perfect summer outfit? Well, add a long frock and a hat of course. At least that’s the formula I’ve been going by this summer when cut-offs and tees don’t seem like enough. This particular vintage frock/dress/cape I found during a lunch break escape to a thrift store near my office.  I love the uncertainty of not knowing what you’ll find, it’s a challenge but at the same time a relaxing experience that cleanses my mind from day stress. It’s funny how just a seven dollar size 14 old dress can make a girl so happy.

LAID BACK DENIM






With life moving at the speed of light I can only sit back and enjoy the ride.  My husband has been out of town for the past three weeks and although I miss him (words cannot describe how much) I’ve taken this time to get in touch with myself again.
Getting overdue projects done, starting new ones, hanging out with my friends, vintage shopping, organizing the apartment, being busy keeps me on my toes, it keeps my ambitious mind calm and happy.

I put tremendous passion in my wardrobe investments; I question and research 97% of my purchases. Sometimes it really pays off, I hope this denim cape/dress/jacket and these beautiful black pumps last me forever.

BASIC UNIFORM

Currently suffering from post long weekend depression, LOL! It was just perfection to have three days to myself to do absolutely nothing, after weeks of long office hours that’s the least I deserve.

I’ve been relying on comfort outfits to get me through the work-week. When I’m on “go-go-go” mode oversize tee shirts and kicks are just irresistible, especially this tee that is basically the “Holy Grail” of tees…trust me I know.

DAYS ARE GONE








Time is flying, we are already in May can you believe it! Summer is upon us and I’m missing those “chili” Miami days wearing my favorite jackets. I’m glad my BFF Kadeem could photograph one my last “winter” looks. Love the way these turned out, they capture the true essence of my personal style; hair on face, slouchy tee, sneakers…
We managed to turn dingy Doral warehouse district into something cool, looking forward to more collaborations.
