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.

WATERMELON AFTERNOONS




A little color doesn’t hurt every once in while. I’ve been embracing being a Miami Beach resident lately; we’ve had friends and family visiting for the past two weeks which has led to the discovery of unknown/new local activities. I tried stand-up paddleboard for the first time –it is my new sport of choice- so freaking fun! Doing new things and stepping out of the routine is mind opening, sometimes we are so caught up with daily responsibilities that we forget to let go and relax. This outfit embodies that felling of letting-go, no limits, no boundaries just going with the flow.

UNEXPECTED BLACK SUIT









































































Is not everyday that one come’s across with the perfect top hat.  This one in particular was found at my best friends closet last October. I saw it and immediately asked if I could have it – we have a system of trading items – I’ve had given her a fedora on a previous occasion so I was convinced she was going to say yes. In a matter of seconds it was mine and I was trilled!
 My husband thinks I look crazy when I wear it; he always tries to convince me that it doesn’t match my outfit. I never listen I absolutely love it. Would you believe me if I told you that it’s from a Halloween store? ...We don’t have to spend a fortune to look epic right!

CHUCKS AND SLACKS








It’s interesting how just the simple mix of a tan blazer, a white cami, pinstripe trousers and dirty converse can look on point. Sometimes the must understated things turn out to be the most impactful. My friends and I are making a pact of minimizing our wardrobes. We are all terrified! It’s going to be extremely hard, but at the end of the journey we will have perfect curated closets with long-lasting pieces. Let's hope we can all follow the rules, I'll keep you posted!
