Something Juicy

{Wearing: Top: LuluLemon. Pants: c/o Colosseum. Juice: c/o Blueprint Cleanse C.A.B. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} Fact: I have been downing Halloween candy like it’s some sort of unpaid, yet overly fulfilling full-time job. Just shoveling it in. Me vs the bag of candy corn. I win! Me vs a bag of ChupaChups. I win again! Me vs a bag of the new peanut butter Snickers. Damn those things are good. I win (and I lose all at the same time). Clearly, I need an intervention. And that’s where Blueprint Cleanse stepped in. I used to do a fast seasonally, but I haven’t done one in a long, long time. And it’s not that I’m trying to drop weight. I’m fine with how much I weight. What I’m not OK with is how I’ve become Godzilla and all the candy in the world is Japan. Things have gotten so bad, I caught…Read More

A Leg Up

  {Wearing: Faux Leather Ponte Legging: c/o Peony and Me. Asymmetrical Faux Leather Top: c/o Peony and Me. Necklace: c/o Express. Shoes: Steve Madden. Bag: Kore. Photographed by me.} As a yogi, I live in leggings. Anytime I can find a reason to wear them outside of my warrior one life, I revel in it, always keeping in mind should I need to bust into a scorpion pose, I’m ready to roll. These leather-ette leggings from Peony and Me are a case in point. The problem with leggings, however, is outside of yoga life, you have to find the right top to wear them with. Otherwise, you risk looking like, well, yeah, no. Brilliantly, Peony and Me created tops that pair perfectly with its leggings, most of which have a mixed media component that I love, like leather-ish and chiffon. I wore a complete Peony and Me look yesterday to Wynwood and…Read More

The Road to Glenwood Springs … My Colorado Adventure Part 2

{Wearing: Romper: c/o Market. Belt: c/o Ramona LaRue. Necklace: c/o T.J. Maxx. Hat: Vintage. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} With waffles, pastries, bagels and juice—the continental breakfast at Hampton by Hilton is no joke—fueling our morning, we sauntered out to the bike. The road to Glenwood Springs lie ahead. Getting there was our goal for day two. The excitement of day one just behind us, the thrill of what was to come propelling us forward. The day was crisp for summer, but given my Miami roots, my perception was bound to be off. I was glad I had my motorcycle jacket with me, although the idea of packing a jacket to begin with seemed ludicrous. The rest of our “luggage” was crammed into the fringe-adorned saddle bags. I had but my one pair of shoes, my motorcycle boots, on my feet, as I hopped on the back of the bike and…Read More

The 2015 Halloween Reveal

Yay, Halloween! Back in September, Mills and I hatched a plan for her to be Jem from Jem and the Holograms for Halloween. To go along with her costume, I decided to be Synergy, her computer that turned her from Jerrica to Jem. So, how does Milly even know who Jem and the Holograms are, since it’s an obscure cartoon from the ’80s? A few years back, I found the show on Netflix on a rainy afternoon when kid and I had zero motivation to even get out of bed. I showed her a few episodes and then blew her mind by heading to the garage and pulling out a couple of the original Jem dolls. (It’s all part of my ploy to give my kid my ’80s childhood.) Since then, she’s been a fan, which I love. I was obsessed with Jem as a kid and probably would have…Read More

Yoga That Saves

  {Wearing: Leggings: c/o Colosseum leggings from the spring 2016 collection. Top: Lululemon. Photographed by me.} How much am I obsessing over these new Colosseum yoga pants from the upcoming spring collection? A ton. Stripes are always a go-to for me, because they’re classic and easy to funk up. I couldn’t wait to get them on and strike a pose. And speaking of fashion you love, remember when you were a kid and you got a new backpack or pair of sneakers or sweatshirt that was your favorite thing? You couldn’t wait to toss it on, wear it to school and show it off. It was the best thing in your whole closet and wearing it gave you swagger. Somewhere in your lifelong closet there an items that’s become part of the fabric of your childhood memories. Sadly, not all kids are lucky enough to have something like that, which…Read More

Who is That Masked Lady

{Wearing: Catwoman Eco Mask: c/o Vivo Masks.} It’s almost heeeere. My most favorite of all the holidays (yes, even Christmas). I love Halloween, in a probably not normal sort of way. This past weekend, I realized why. And it’s not just because I can unearth the weird collection of costumes I have at my house and wear them in public with opera gloves and a beautiful metal mask like this one from Vivo Masks. It’s because Halloween is a tradition in my family. This past week, my mother sent me endless photos of zombie heads, body bags, homemade floating ghosts and a pic of herself dressed as death with glowing red eyes. No, I didn’t grow up in the Adams’ family. My mom, who lives in the middle of nowhere in a giant forest, turned the woods around her into a haunted house for a Halloween party. And, based on…Read More

It’s Sweater Weather in Miami

{Wearing: Sweater: c/o T.J. Maxx. Skirt: Blush. Booties: Bib + Tuck. Bag: c/o T.J. Maxx. Necklace: c/o Kore. Photographed by Ria Michelle.} After what’s been the longest summer in Miami ever (my ac up and died not once but four times this summer), it’s finally sweater weather in Miami. And that’s not just for picture purposes either. It really is sweater weather in Miami. There’s wind. And temps in the 80s. Is this what fall feels like? It’s been so long and so sweltering, I’d almost forgotten. In fact, the weather has been so amazing, I find myself escaping to the great outdoors as often as I can. Just the other day I slipped into this designer sweater from T.J. Maxx and my favorite booties and hit a blogger brunch with Lacoste at Mandolin at Soho House the other day and was shocked to see a table full of fellow sweater wearers…Read More

Now You See Me, Now You Don’t

{Wearing: Skirt: Blush. Booties: Valentino. Smiley Deco Small Camouflage Bag: c/o V73. Photographed by me.} I don’t know when it happened, but it did. I somehow transitioned into a camo wear-er. It all started with a knit hat I got back home, in the Panhandle—the birthplace of camouflage. I bought it at a flea market. It was a novelty purchase. Then, a baseball cap happened. Next, a tank top. Jeans, shirts—there was more to follow. And now I am the owner of a camo bag. It shocks even me. I always thought I was too girly for such things. That, and I’ve never been one to go incognito. But then Valentino took the print and transitioned it from gun-toter gear to, dare I say it, fashionable. And suddenly, camo happened. I know that was a while ago. And I know I’m like 1,000 years late to this party, but when…Read More

Find Your Wanderlust

{Wearing: Leggings: c/o Habit Activ Samson Crop. Top: Lululemon. Photographed by @thelouiscollection} That’s me getting my om on at Leggings Lounge during the last night of Yoga Month. If you’re looking for another community yoga event, I suggest checking out Wanderlust 108. It’s a “mindful triathlon,” which includes a 5K run, outdoor yoga and guided meditation. It’s happening this Saturday, October 17, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Virginia Key Beach at 4020 Beach Drive. What I like about Wanderlust 108 is its message, which is simply spelled out in its hashtag: #ActuallySheCan. It’s a message of female empowerment and self. In other words, get it, girl. And um, brilliant, there’s an #ActuallySheCan trampoline at the event to encourage people to “bounce back from anything.” Love that. So, this weekend, if you’re looking to put a positive spin on your outlook, go ahead, find your Wanderlust. Get tickets here. And speaking of…Read More
