Hello, Fall

{Wearing: (On me:) Bikini: c/o Bianca Coletti Swim bikini. Necklace: Kore. (On Mills:) Bikini: c/o Bianca Coletti Swim. Necklace: Vintage. Headband: American Eagle. Photographed by me.} And there you have it, the first day of fall. How did Mills and I celebrate its arrival? In Bianca Coletti Swim bikinis. Mind you, it’s still in the high 80s with 1,000 percent humidity, but hey, that’s fall in Miami. Those of us who live here know autumn in this neck of the woods is a weird animal. The AC is still at all systems go, but the stores are fully stocked with boots and scarves that you can’t wear for risk of having a heat stroke. But the cravings, oh the cravings, to wear those fall fashions. So we do, in doses. Boots with shorts (and a layer of sweat). Leather skirts with crop tops (and a layer of sweat). Sweaters with…Read More



Safety First

{Wearing: On me: c/o Old Navy jeans, top and hat. On Mills: Old Navy everything.} This Saturday, I’m scooping up kid and heading over to Old Navy for Camp Old Navy’s Play it Safe event, where community heroes will share tips on how and why safety comes first. Mills and I actually hit up Old Navy yesterday to stock up on fall looks and shop the Kids & Baby Sale, which landed us amazing finds, like her patent leather slip ons for $6! And that’s where we heard about the cool event. Think the sale is just for kiddos? Nope, there’s plenty for the whole crew. I landed my awesome hat for just $15. So, if you need to keep the kids entertained and want to do a little fall and back-to-school shopping without breaking the bank, I suggest heading over today. The fact that kids get the 411 on…Read More



Shark Bait

{Wearing: Bikini: c/o Vix Paulahermanny Zaz Ripple Triangle Bikini and matching Tie-Side Bottom. Sunnies: c/o Marilyn Monroe Eyewear Elsie in Vintage Glitter. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} I love a Vix Paulahermanny bikini. There’s something about the cut that fits perfectly. Ever. Single. Time. Especially the bottom. And oh, if bikinis could talk, the story this one would tell. You see, I took it on my recent trip to Key Largo for Memorial Day weekend. It just so happens that day one of the trip included a snorkeling trip on a boat with one of the most beautiful reefs I’ve ever seen before in my life. OK, it’s actually the second only reef I’ve ever seen before in my life because that whole fear of the ocean thing (fish touching me, total fear of sharks, swimming in something that’s basically another planet) is real. I’d been snorkeling once before in Mexico…Read More



Back in Black (OK, Chocolate Brown)

Attempting to have hair in Miami in the summer months is, well, cue the Mission Impossible theme song. And I’m not just talking about humidity-ruined blowouts either. The overall texture of your hair—with weekend pool dips into chlorine-laden swimming holes, wind-whipping boat rides and tress-tangling convertible jaunts lead to lock demise. And let’s not even mention trying to maintain hair color in a city where the sun seeps into every conceivable crevice. As a brunette, summer leaves me red or faded brown with touches of grey. It’s not, I repeat NOT, pretty. And that’s why I headed to Sassoon for an end-of-summer touch up and repair. I opted for a dark chocolate brown to cover up what a summer’s worth of sun did to my mane. Upon visiting with my stylist, I got the deets on a masque that will lock moisture back into hair after a lingering summer. With…Read More



Under Pressure

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. It’s still spa month. That’s me. Enjoying life. I mean, I regularly enjoy life, and these past few weeks have been amazing (or uh may zing, as I like to say it). I’ve traveled here, there and everywhere. And I got to spend a blissful weekend with my kiddo at a posh hotel. It’s been the perfect ending to one of the best summers I’ve had in years. But slipping out of vacay mode and back into real life, well, that sucks. The night after I got off my second plane of the day, hopped an uber and made my way home post midnight, the thought, “I have to return to real life” hit me. Ugh. Double ugh. Super ugh. Noooo. To ease the pain, the next morning I grabbed my beau and headed to The Spa at Turnberry Isle to help ease the sting of post-vacation life. The…Read More



Mills and I Take Over The Loews Instagram

  {Both wearing: Sweet Lola Kids bikini and one piece. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} Tomorrow kicks off the first day of school. THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! I don’t know where summer went. Sucked into the abyss, with only memories of what happened. I have to say I had a blast, though. This past month has literally zoomed by and brought with it a load of adventures. Mills took a trip to Boston with her family. And I went to Colorado on the trip of a lifetime. (More to come on that soon enough.) We celebrated an epic homecoming by checking into the Loews Miami Beach Hotel and taking over their Instagram for the weekend. It was a picture perfect weekend because it gave me a chance to spend some time with my favorite person on earth before life gets back into its groove and things like homework and tardy…Read More




Hello, my name is Ginger, and I will do anything for designer shoes on sale. For instance, I’ll be up at the crack of dawn, waiting—claws sharpened—at the Fontainebleau’s Annual Retail Sale Friday at 10 a.m. Why? Oh, because last year, I snatched up not one but two pairs of Valentino shoes, including these bowed beauties, and a pair of booties that have stopped people dead in their tracks. Guess how much I paid for them? Next to nothing. Yup, 80 percent off. But it’s not just shoes at this must-shop sale. You’ll find women’s, men’s and kids designer apparel, swimwear and accessories from IDAandHARRY, Lapis Retail, Aquamarine, Bleau Signature and Morris & Co., all at up to 80 percent off. That would be 80 percent off brands like Emilio Pucci, Dsquared2, Giuseppe Zanotti, Nancy Gonzalez, Philipp Plein, Barbara Bui, J Brand, Splits 59, Eberjay, Sundek, Vilebrequin, Delfina, Eres, Fisico and more….Read More



Weekend Warrior

    {Wearing: Weekend Tank: c/o Marshalls. Bikini: c/o Maaji Swimwear. Sunglasses: Woodzee Claudia Pear Wood White Dip. Bangles: Forever 21. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.}         How am I already shopping for Milly’s school supplies again? Where in the world has summer gone? How can I stop time, and hang on to what’s left? #realtalk With the end of summer looming, the last vacation of the season planned and practically executed, all that’s left are the weekends. You know, the thing that gets you out of bed on Mondays, that thing that gets you over the hump on Wednesdays. That thing that keeps you hanging on. Thankfully, I live in Miami, where the weekends will still feel like the lot of summer for months and months to come. So for now, with what’s left of the best season of them all, let’s get out there and make the most of…Read More



Christmas in July

{Wearing: Hat: c/o Laundry by Shelli Segal. Top: Vintage. Shorts: Blush, similar to these. Shoes: BCBG. Glossybox: c/o Glossybox. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.} If someone gave me a piece a paper and asked me to write down 10 things that give me unbridled happiness, one of those things would be getting stuff in the mail. I don’t know what it is about packages in the mail, but it evokes a similar emotional response to a kindergarten class all hopped up on Publix birthday cake. I’m convinced half of the reason why online shopping even works is because of the serotonin rush to the head you feel when that boxes arrives. Ordering something from Amazon leaves me like a dog at the window for days on end just waiting for UPS, Fed Ex, USPS, hell, even DLH to bring me stuff. And when it arrives, I, much like Fido, storm the door…Read More
