Happy Pumpkin Pie Day

{Wearing: Dress: Blush. Necklace: Vintage. Platform Wedges: Aldo. On Kid: Dress: Target. Moto Boots: Gap Kids.} Normally, on Thanksgiving, I launch into some rant about how it’s my least favorite holiday, or go on a tirade about how shopping on Thursday instead of Black Friday is morally wrong because it takes employees away from their family time. Basic “Ginger on her soapbox” regalia. But not today. Today, I’m just grateful for kid. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her. And I mean that. In fact, today, I did things that shocked even myself for her. What? The specifics don’t matter. But she does. And that’s what it’s all about, finding that person in life that you would do anything, and I mean anything, for. They take up such space in your heart that you find yourself stepping so far outside of your comfort zone that it amazes even you. And…Read More

Leather Weather

{Wearing: On Me: Dress: Touch. Moto Vest: Vintage. Booties: Bib + Tuck. Bag: Marc Jacobs. Necklace: Vintage from Fly Boutique. Hair: Nue Todd at Nue Studio. On Kid: Top: Gap Kids. Leggings: Target. Booties: Gap Kids. Glasses: c/o OptiWow. Photographed by me.} In recent days, several things have happened to confirm it’s my favorite time of the year: 1) Pumpkin-flavored everything has taken over stores. 2) The Autumn Mix bag of candy corn has arrived. 3) My family is posting pics of the fall festival up north and dropping hints that divinity (my most favorite sweet treat ever) will arrive 4) The guy dressed as Super Mario is back on the corner swinging his Halloween store sign 5) At 8 a.m. in Miami, it’s now 79 degrees, instead of 92. Sure, that may still sound like “summer” to you non-Miamians, but here, it’s legit fall. It’s time to start riding my…Read More

Date Night With My Best Girl

{I’m Wearing: Dress: c/o Market. Hat: H&M. Shoes: Jessica Simpson. Necklace: Vintage. Bag: Vintage Oleg Cassini. On Kiddo: Dress: Tricia Fix. Bag: Gap. Shoes: Target. Glasses: c/o Optiwow. Photographed by Julie Fogel.} Friday night is date night at my house. Kiddo and I spend it one of two ways: We either crawl into my bed and gorge ourselves on what we like call “carb fiesta” and then turn on a Netflix classic, or we get dolled up and hit Lincoln Road for a dinner and a stroll or a movie (depending on what’s playing in the kid realm). Milly always has some sparkling dinner conversation to share, mostly about iPad games, the latest toy craze or a new book she found at the library at school. Although, now she’s decided she has a boyfriend and that gives me the ultimate urge to lock her in a closet until she’s 30….Read More

Storm’s a-brewin’

{Wearing: (Me): Jacket: c/o K-Way Claudette Klassic Printed Logo Stripe. Shorts: ShopBlush.com. Shoes:  Converse c/o Sawgrass Mills. (On Kiddo): Jacket: c/o K-Way Calude Klassic Kids Printed Logo Stripe. Dress: H&M. Shoes:  Converse c/o Sawgrass Mills. Summer in Miami goes a little like this: Sunshine, 100 percent humidity, clouds that resemble the nothing, end of days rainstorm, sunshine and 10,000 percent humidity five minutes later. It’s the most predictable unpredictability ever. In fact, I’m pretty sure the weather man just puts rain on the forecast for the week from May through August and heads out on vacay, because he/she knows it’s going to happen at some point. And it does. Milly and I caught a wicked storm the other day. The winds were blowing so hard we couldn’t keep the hair out of our faces, hence the mustaches. We snapped these pics in our matching K-Way raincoats just before the first few drops…Read More

My Summer Girl

  {On Me: Crop Top: c/o H&M. High-waisted Shorts: c/o French Connection. Sneaks: Converse c/o Sawgrass Mills. Necklace: Vintage. Bag: Kate Spade c/o TJ Maxx. Hat: New York Street Fair. On Kiddo: Top: Gap Kids. Shorts: Gap Kids. Hat: H&M. Necklace: H&M. Sneaks: Gap Kids. Photographed by moi.} I asked Mills late in spring what she wanted to do this summer. I told her we could go anywhere she wanted. I was fully prepared to spend the day with Mickey and Minnie and 10,000 other tourists schlepping kids around the blazing inferno that is Disney, but she shocked me when she told me she’d rather go to New York and do some shopping, see the sights and eat at a few places she’d seen on TV. Clearly, this is my child through and through. So I did it. I traveled alone with my kiddo for the first time in my life. And…Read More

The Hallway

{On me: Top: H&M. Skirt: Nanako. Shoes: c/o French Connection. Necklace: Vintage Avon. On Milly: Dress: Mimi and Maggie Dress c/o Hugs & Hissyfits. Bow: Laneybug Bowtique c/o Hugs and Hissyfits. Shoes: Gap. Photographed by me.} On our recent trip to New York (more to come on that), Mills and I found a cool hallway with mirrors and an elevator and decided to do a little shoot—she especially wanted to wear her new boho dress, so I indulged her (and myself). Besides, it was pouring down rain and rainy days in New York lend to indoor activities. I haven’t figured out how to travel with my tripod because it’s too big to fit into my suitcase, so I set up shop with a stool and some books and took these.

Dive In: Escape Miami Style Lounge

{On me: Bikini: American Apparel top and bottom. Pearls: Vintage. On kiddo: Bathing suit: American Apparel. Bracelets: Vintage. Turban: Vintage. Photographed by Alexander Tamargo of @altaimages.} Fact: I spent one whole day driving from one end of Miami to the other to find props to recreate two vintage pics I found on Pinterest for this year’s Escape Miami Style Lounge exhibit. Why? I might be a tad crazy, partially obsessed and dedicated as hell. Once I get a picture in my head, I just have to see it through to the end. I chalk it up to my Aries-ness. This year, knowing I was shooting at The National Hotel for the project, I let myself get inspired by the Art Deco architecture, my love of bygone days and upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. I’ll always be a retro girl at heart, and having a stylist who can whip up the best…Read More

It’s National Sunglasses Day

Happy National Sunglasses Day. If any city knows the importance of sunnies, it’s Miami. I scooped up these orange sunnies while I was in New York and brought them back to the Sunshine State to keep the rays out of our eyes. And speaking of orange, I just binged watched Orange is the New Black season 2. That last episode, wow, as in call me Piper, let’s chat. And now I need something new to binge on. I’m open to suggestions. Go!

Tales from The New Lotus House Fashion Show

{On me: Dress: c/o Ramona LaRue. Belt: Vintage. Necklace: Frankie Miami. Shoes: Zara via Bib + Tuck. On Mills: Dress: c/o Ramona LaRue. Shoes: Target. Bag: Gap. Photographed by me.} Last week, Milly made her fashion show debut. Stylist extraordinaire Elysze Held of StyleOutoftheCity asked us to be a part of the grand opening of the new Lotus House, which included a fashion show featuring the work of designers like Arianne Brown of Ramona LaRue and Filomena Fernandez, who graciously donated their designs to the thrift store to help raise funds for its new location. Lotus House, as you may know is a charity that provides sanctuary and support, education, tools and resources to homeless women and children. It’s a beautiful organization and I encourage you to donate your unwanted items to the charity, as the funds go to these women and children hoping to make their lives a little better. It was an…Read More
