Off to Market

{Wearing: Croptop: Touch Boutique. Skirt: c/o French Connection (similar here). Necklace: c/o Delicate Raymond vintage monogrammed necklace. Bag: Marc Jacobs. Shoes: Steve Madden. Flash Tattoo: Blush. Photographed by KarGar.} Attention fashionistas, there’s a new spot to shop in South Florida. From Studio LX and Blush boutiques comes Market, a spot where staples equal both comfort and style. Is that possible? Yup, it is. Tees, harem pants, white cotton dresses, tattered jeans, boho jewels and more abound at the store at 5818 Sunset Drive. The best part: Almost everything is under $100. I got a chance to shop the store along with some of my favorite bloggers prior to the grand opening. And I’ll say this much: Good stuff. There’s even a seamstress service offered so you can get the perfect fit. As a Miami blogger, I’ve made it no secret the importance of shopping local. And this is a perfect chance…Read More

500 Days of Summer

{Bikini: Zimmermann Sundown Frill Bikini at ShopBop. Turban: Vintage. Sunglasses: c/o Italia Independent. Armband: Flash Tattoo at Shopblush.com. Photographed by Maria Tettamani.} I hold on. I held on. I let go. Another summer comes to an end. And it’s so hard to let go. I never knew that I would, as an adult, have the same feelings about summer’s end as I did when I was a kid in school. Yes, I was always excited about what upcoming fall held, and I am now, too. I mean, I’m going to NYFW for the first time in my life, but letting go of summer, to stop holding her hand, to wave goodbye to her, is bittersweet. This summer was a blast. While last summer had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, this summer was a unending blast. New friendships so deep, I don’t know how I got along without them…Read More

LOL

{Wearing: Dress: Blush maxi dress. Bag: Botkier c/o Bloomingdale’s Outlet at Sawgrass Mills. Shoes: Aldo wedges. Necklace: Vintage. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti.} Let’s play I never. First, I never wear the same thing twice in blog posts, which, if you think about it, is silly. In non-photographing-your-clothes world, people wear things more than once a lot. If we didn’t, we’d all be buying new everyday clothes at a rate faster than any of us could keep up with. So, I present the elusive blog post double wear. I love this dress because it’s backless and in Miami in the dead of summer, backless is like built-in ac. Next, I never ever post candid shots of myself laughing like this. I don’t know why. I laugh all the time. Mills even pointed it out to me the other day. She said, “Mommy, you laugh at everything.” I do, but when I see…Read More

The Supermoon Made Me Do It

{Wearing: Coverup: Vintage BCBG. Bikini: Luli Fama. Sandals: Gap. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti.} Scientifically, the Supermoon is when a full or new moo’s elliptical orbit is closer to Earth, making the moon seem larger when viewed from our little blue-green planet. But what it also represents, from an astrological point of view, is insight, intuition and an opening of our hearts. In layman’s terms: YOLO (you only live once). Basically, Maria, whom I do Pilates with week after week, has been screaming YOLO from the reformer behind me for weeks now. Oddly, enough, this week, it took hold. I YOLO-ed my face off. Little did I know when Lululemon invited a group of bloggers, yogis and influencers (and some of my favorite people in Miami) to come together for a beautiful Saturday at The Standard Spa, that I would do things that surprised even me. What transpired was me stepping so far out of…Read More

Flash Mob

  {Wearing: Flash Tattoos Lena, available at Shopblush.com. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti.} This past Friday, there was plenty of flashing going on at the beach. No, no, not that kind—although I have seen more than I’ve wanted to on the beach this summer. Instead, I brought a pack of Flash Tattoos, stole some scissors from a cabana boy and went to tatting up myself and my Fancy Friday crew. Sharing is caring. Why the beach? Because, the sun catches these temporary metallic tattoos perfectly and there’s plenty of surface area to stick them to when you’re wearing a bikini. I bought my first pack of Flash Tattoos a month or so ago at Blush, but didn’t try them out until I got one of the limited-edition ones applied at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. And it stayed on through thick, thin, shower, yoga sesh, sweat fest, etc … When it finally…Read More

Mara Hoffman is the Queen of Swim Week

{Dress: Mara Hoffman Racerback Maxi Dress c/o Zappos.com. Headpiece: So Good Jewelry. Cuff: Flea market find. Bag: Hunting Season. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti.} There, I said it. After days of looking at tribal prints at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim, none can hold a candle to those created by Mara Hoffman. Her colors, her patterns, her shapes, her textures—they are untouchable. Every year I look forward to her show, like hundreds of other fashionistas. Is it the boho factor that sucks us in? Perhaps, but I think it’s also the added extra fashion element. We see her cover-ups and know we won’t just be wearing it to the beach. It’s going to be our Saturday day/night dress, too. She gets a Miami girl’s style. And this year was no exception. This year Hoffman broke her mold. She changed up her game. The fictional globetrotting bohemian who inspires her looks (who last year took…Read More

So This Just Happened …

  {Sandals: Sam & Libby Silver Sandals. Polish: Essie Plumberry.} I own silver Birksenstock ish sandals. How in the hell did this happen? Well … I’ve always run in the other direction of ugly shoe trends. I staved off Uggs, Crocs, platform sneakers. I even said no to overalls (which I know isn’t a shoe, but still). I’ve even gone as far as to take a pair of Birkenstocks owned by someone I know and throw them in the trash as I was picking out other shoes for them to wear because I refused to spend one more minute in the company of hideous hippie shoes. So, when buddy Maria Tettamanti showed up with them at the beach one day, I said no. No, no, no. But then fellow blogger Jana of OJ and Cigs started wearing them on her blog and Instagram, and it piqued my interest. The next time…Read More

Spa Me

{Dress: Shopblush.com. Necklace: Vintage. Bracelet: Touch Boutique. Bag: Vintage. Shoes: Steve Madden. Photographed by Maria Tettamani.} This is me joyfully escaping to Lapis at The Fontainebleau. Here’s why … Saturday morning, my house: 11:07 Kid is in the shower not washing her own hair because she wants me to do it for her. 11:14 I discover my Yorkshire Terrorists have thieved a bag of chocolate chips and eaten I don’t know how many. 11:16 I call the vet who tells me I have to give them hydrogen peroxide to get the poison out. 11:17 I am officially covered in hydrogen peroxide that the dogs want no part of drinking. 11:17 and 30 seconds: Kid is loudly inquiring why I still haven’t gotten her out the shower. 11:21 Dogs are now sick all over my rug from the hydrogen peroxide (which was the point), though the rug was not my preferred…Read More

A Pose a Day

{Top: Roca Chica Scallop Bikini Top c/o Athleta. Bottom: Roca Chica Scallop Swim Short c/o Athleta. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl.} I’m so excited about the upcoming Athleta yoga class at 1111 Lincoln Road on Saturday, June 21, it’s inspired me to do something new: One pose a day for the rest of the month, which I’ll be posting on Instagram (@gingerharris) from now through June 30. Here’s my first, a toestand variation. And while I’m twisting myself up like a pretzel, I’ll be listing one thing I’m grateful for, too. After all, that’s what yoga is all about. It’s not just the physical practice. It’s the mental part, too, bending your mind into new shapes and realizing what you’re capable of. Namaste, and I hope to see you on Saturday. The party gets started at 9 a.m. with brunch and good times after. Bonus pose!
