Building a College Wardrobe at Sawgrass Mills

  {The big kid is off to college …} So you’ve worn a uniform to school every day of the week for the past 18 years to school. And now you’re off to college. What in the world are you going to wear? There’s a fashion-related problem if I’ve ever seen one. And also the question of the moment at our house now that Julien is flying the coop and heading off to college. Yes, we have a kid headed to college. And no, that does not make us old. (I keep telling myself.) After 18 years in private school, donning his polo shirts and khaki shorts, he was a little light in the clothing department. Like five pairs of random jeans, no shirts and a pair of shoes too small light. It also doesn’t help that his feet seem to grow another shoe size every time the calendar changes…Read More

Don’t Forget to Pack Your Fitness Routine

{Look: c/o Hello Molly Sprinter Leggings and Matching Sports Bra in Dark Blue. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris} So much has happened in the past month that I’m thrilled to share with you guys. If you follow my Insta stories, you’ve probably noticed I’m spending a lot of time at The Pilates Place Studios. And here’s the reason why: I’m officially a certified Pilates mat teacher. If you thought I wore a lot of fitness gear before, prepare for a whole new dimension of me exploring new brands just for you. Like this Odd Molly matching set I’m sporting above. I love a pattern. It makes looking down at your legs while they are shaking and quaking that much better. A happy place in a moment of fatigue, if you will. And since I have my certification now, I’m ready to teach group and private mat Pilates classes in Miami, so…Read More

Happy Fourth Anniversary to Leggings Lounge

{Wearing Phat Buddha leggings from Glimpse. Photographed by @thelouiscollection} Leggings Lounge is back. Admittedly, it’s my favorite thing about summer in Miami, which is why I was beyond thrilled to host the fourth anniversary. Thinking back, I’ve hosted every opening of the free yoga and happy hour event since its inception. How cool is that? This year, I walked into the first meet up of the fourth season at Paradise Plaza Event Space in the Design District. There were pops of pink everywhere. And when I say everywhere I mean down to people’s brows. Leggings Lounge partnered with European Wax Center and its Raise a Pink Brow Against the Pink Tax (essentially how women’s products at the same size and even from the same brands cost more). To raise awareness, they were on hand painting people’s brows pink. How fun are pink brows? We all hit our pink mats and…Read More

A Reminder to Just Breathe

{Wearing: c/o Imbodhi Astra bodysuit. Necklace: c/o The Shift by Komusō Design. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris} Sometimes, when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and everything feels out of whack and you feel like ducking and running for cover, the most important thing to do is the thing you most often forget; to breathe. It sounds so simple and yet it’s not. Our body voluntarily does it for us for a reason. If left up to us, we’d be blue in the face—a lot. When I heard about The Shift by Komusō Design, a cylinder-shaped charm with holes that allows you to center your breath by simply breathing into it, I jumped at the chance to feature it. We all need a reminder to inhale the good and exhale the bad. And this is a beautiful, zen-filled way in which to do so. Plus,…Read More

THE FINDS: Valentine’s Day for Under $50

{Notecard Pack, White Orchid & Oud Candle, Rose Gold Heart Necklace, Message Board: c/o T.J. Maxx} I’m so excited to announce THE FINDS is back on the blog. And with Valentine’s Day but a few days away, what better time to find a variety of cute gift ideas for under $50? For this round, Milly and I stopped in at T.J. Maxx to see what would make a sweet gift. We found a packet of the cutest notecards with everything from butterflies to palm fronds. The white orchid and oud candle smelled so yummy we couldn’t pass it up. We’re both into message boards and we love how this one lights up. And would it really be VDay without a rose-gold heart necklace? The best part was we scoured all of this for $49. I know it sounds too good to be true, but check out the breakdown: This post…Read More

The Great Oblication: Zion National Park

Our trip to Utah’s five national parks got wildly off course. We drove past Canyonlands. We drove past Canyon Reef. We drove past Bryce. And we just kept on going. The gravitational pull of Zion was a force so strong we couldn’t ignore it. Plans bend and twist and fold. And when they do, you have roll with the punches. We realized our goal were completely overzealous. Dragging kids from park to park in such a short period of time was crazy. But we didn’t realize it until we got there and pushed their little legs from here to there and everywhere. As long as we were together and making the most of this oblication (a trip you’re obligated to take that you also turn into a vacation), well, that what counts. So to heck with doing it all. We’d skip the rest and aim for the best. But first…Read More

It’s Heeeereeeee: Art Basel 2017 and the Faena Kickoff

{Ginger and the technicolor dreamcoat, which is actually my new fluffy coat from Rebel. Thx, for the pic, Serge.} And here we are. It’s Art Basel, even though Art Basel hasn’t even started yet. And what a wonderful thing it is. This time of year in Miami is an absolute gift. Yes, the traffic is horrible. Yes, you wait in line to wait in another line to wait in yet another line, but it’s all worth it. The weather is divine. The art is inspiring and, well, there really isn’t anything like this on earth. Last night Faena kicked off Miami Art Week with a VIP preview. And let me tell you, beneath the big full moon, with the cool ocean breeze, seeing these installations as a band, outfitted with fire dancers, marched us from installation to installation, ending in a kaleidoscope-projected room inside Faena Forum, where roller skaters outfitted…Read More

{Wearing: Bathing Suit: Hampton’s One Piece c/o Modcloth. Hat: You Me and the Sea c/o Abaco. Photographed By Jorge Camaraza} It’s no secret I love animals. This is me with my bestie, Shadow. I adore her. I recently got to spend time in Turks and Caicos with dogs available for adoption, too, but more about that to come.
