I’ve never lived in a world where imagination and creativity didn’t exist. Miami is full of it – I grew up on the arts and want to continue to live in a world where it is cherished. Same goes for my fashion choices. Pops of color as statement pieces will always be a great fashion choice.
You can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl. I love wearing a simple, black outfit, even in 90 degree weather. Less is more and can make an even bigger statement; when it comes to Miami dressing, layers doesn’t really exist (which was why it was so foreign to me when I moved up north). Instead, one focuses on a single item to make their outfit stand out.
Rompers will always be my summer go-to. They’re fun, flirty and easy to slip into! This flowy, black one from Necessary Clothing is easily one of my favorite summer pieces.
I always like finding pieces that accentuate my body shape. The hot summer months are meant to be enjoyed and lived in a care-free way. The best thing about a romper like this is it can be styled differently each time it is worn and look like a completely different garment. Like shorts, I enjoy my rompers to be a bit loose on the bottom; I may be small, but I still have curves and like the illusion a piece can create when the fabric flows away from the body.
The back caught my eye the most. Backless pieces are always a good idea, they flatter almost everyone. I like the fact I can adjust the straps to fit my body shape. Sometimes, having a smaller waist and upper body paired with a curvier bottom can pose a bit of a problem in the tailoring department. Being able to adjust the romper to my body means a great fit without needing to make adjustments.
Shoes. Oh, the Shoes.
Miami is all about loud, vibrant colors – a perfect match for it’s loud and vibrant people. I try to add pops of color wherever I can and love these Iggy Azalea for Steve Madden heels!
Chunkier heels are great for roaming around the city streets. I believe comfort and fashion need to learn to co-exist and finding ways to be comfortable while not compromising personal style is always a must for me. I love wearing heels and wouldn’t want to give that up because of an uncomfortable shoe. I found the decision of using scuba fabric to be quite creative and perfect for those unexpected rainy days (your shoes won’t get ruined). They’re also really light, which I prefer to a heavy shoe which happens quite often with chunkier heels.
All Natural, Baby.
I’m also happy to report the transitioning phase from processed hair to all natural is finally done after a year and a half! I love my curly hair and will be rocking it a lot this summer. Even though it’s new territory – I can’t remember the last time I had naturally curly hair – I can’t wait to share my experience with you guys and find the perfect products for me. If you have any suggestions, give me a shout!
I love the change the Wynwood area has made over the past couple of years. Once considered “Little San Juan” (and honestly not one of the safest neighborhoods in Miami), it is now gone through gentrification (for better or for worse) and has become a trendy arts hub right in the center of Miami. I remember when my mother had her amazing showroom, Magy Interiors, in this area before the transformation and love how a place that holds so many memories for me is being recognized globally. We should always recognize an areas history while admiring its present. Until next time, friends!
