event recap: loveyourREALselfie

This weekend started off with a bang at the Aerie #LoveYourREALSelfie event at Mondrian South Beach. I had a great time interacting with party guests, my fellow bloggers, and the team from Aerie for a perfect poolside day celebrating natural and unphotoshopped beauty. The event brought out ladies of all ages–from 6 to 60! It was amazing to see how much fun everyone had with the complimentary selfie sticks, loving their real selfies. The event had hosts like DJ babe Hannah Bronfman, actress Mae Whitman, and blogger babe Sincerely Jules, and Gray Malin was recruited to fly overhead in a helicopter to shoot the largest selfie around the pool and deck area of Mondrian. It was amazing! I was relatively unfamiliar with the movement prior to this event here in Miami, so let me share some of the details. mondrian south beach   Continue Reading…

coated denim

It’s been a whirlwind holiday season, and living in a place like Miami it’s sometimes easy to forget the month, the season… and so on. We’ve had a few chilly days (I use that word very lightly), and everyone seemed to take advantage of the cooler temps. Of course, I was one of those people. And while yes, it might seem silly to wear a beanie in the low 70s, or OTK boots when it’s practically beach weather, sometimes Miami people want to wear winter clothes too.

navy snakeskin

I’m not a huge fan of reptiles, but give me a navy and neon silk snake print top and I’ll wear it with excitement. I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately, so I figured the time was right to shake things up a little and rock a little navy. With black accessories. Lol. This top was an amazing score, so amazing in fact, that it sold out. In fact, the light silk and the sheer sleeves make it kind of the ideal work wardrobe blouse, because it’s breezy enough to be outdoors but also offers coverage to keep it professional. Thankfully, there are very similar styles still in stock (but going fast) like this sweater and this blouse. Paired with an easy scuba skater skirt, sandals, and my trusty staple accessories, I feel like I am finding my own style within a corporate culture. Thank the Lord I don’t have to wear pantsuits or other frumpy stuff! This was one of my last warm looks before this cold front swept in and required me to start wearing pants. Come back, sun!
