classic pieces + a timeless smile

When you think about filling a closet with items that are “timeless,” what do you think of? You can rattle off the wardrobe staples like the little black dress, a great pair of jeans, a cozy white sweater. Taking it further, you want a structured handbag, a great heel, a chic flat…the list goes on. But one of the things that looks classic, timeless, and forever in style is something you might not have thought about: a beautiful smile.

seeking the perfect smile with invisalign

Like a lot of people, I had braces as a teenager. Also like a lot of people, I didn’t do much in the area of wearing my retainers after my braces came off. That’s why, a decade later, I’m embarking on a new adventure: Invisalign. While my teeth aren’t terrible, they are crooked enough to bother me. I find myself generally “smizing” in photos rather than smiling, because when shadows hit my teeth at certain angles they look quite bad, in my opinion. Like other bones in your body, teeth age. They move, they shift. Now, at age 30, it became clear to me that my teeth were only going to continue to move, and it was time to do something about it.

I’m not the only one who feels this way–Mionetto Prosecco shares this idea!

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.
