standard mornings

What better way to start the day than surrounded by nature? As a condo dweller, I love wandering around the Standard Miami Beach and having some serious garden envy. From totem poles to hammocks, a fire pit to mud baths, there’s plenty of ways to engage with nature while you unwind. Of course I coordinated with the manicured yard with burlap Proenza Schouler sandals and a nice spring floral shift by Chloe. Easy does it.

miami music week 2016

This year, I had the best experience at Miami Music Week. It’s funny, most of the year I kind of lay low–just like to travel, relax, sleep, and be pretty low key. Then Music Week rolls around and I remember just how much I enjoy it. I got to watch and meet some of my favorite DJs like Michael Calfan and Klingande, got a sweet pair of V-Moda headphones, and also met with the awesome team from Swatch. Big shoutout to Glamsquad for keeping me festival ready when my energy levels were low.

‘Til next year…

Most of us have a white shirt, black skirt, black shoes– not to mention various versions of these, so it should be an easy habit to take on. Keeping a color palette of black and white still gives you room to personalize your look: stripes with solids, polka dots with florals, black with black, and so on. Point being: black and white is a very basic guideline that still gives you a lot of creative freedom. For that, I love this classic color combo.
