Wywood

Now more than ever, I’ve been meandering the streets of the mural-filled neighborhood of Wynwood, Miami. The area is peppered with many of my favorite healthy eats such as Jugo Fresh, Zak the Baker and Dr. Smood, so I can score a clean lunch while soaking in the sites of the newest murals.

Right now, I’m loving artist Didi Contreras‘ works. Her colorful pieces depicting bold women (yay for girl power!) are the perfect makings for Intsagram sensations (yeah, that’s a thing). 

I shot these pics last week before my trip to Park City, Utah (more on that amazing-ness next week), wearing my new fave pair of M.i.h. jeans paired with my current go-to Aquazzura flats on rotation. My Fendi “Karl” pom pom has been quite the conversation piece, too, as people always stop and ask about this obnoxiously large yet fun and furry accessory.

Have a fab weekend and get lost on the art-filled walls of Wynwood if you get the chance. Seek out Didi’s work and snap away!

Ehr-Ma-Gawd. The temperatures here in sweltering Miami, Florida finally dipped into the 50s and what does that mean for us wintry weather-deprived folks?

It’s time to bust out those coats, baby! If only for two hot minutes, that is.

My mom (Greek moms are indisputably the best, by the way) bought me this all-white statement coat and wide-leg pant ensemble. While it’s rather Stepford Wife-esque — much like Kylie Jenner to a vile of lip filler — I am feeling it! When mama gifts me these kind of gems, I think she’s subliminally trying to tell me to dress in a more classic (read: older) way. AND I’LL TAKE IT. Especially since it’s a Rochas situation. And Rochas anything is invariably everything.

I managed to make the outfit a wee bit hipper and younger (sorry, ma) by throwing on a pair of hoop earrings. We born-in-Jersey girls love our mall kiosk-bought hoops! They scream, “I have swagger” like no other accessory.

Cheers to the cooler temperatures and for those of you braving snow-mageddon elsewhere in the country…keep warm and hot toddy on.

Selfie Game So LIT

January 20th, 2016

Selfie Light

Civenchy Lipstick

Lumee Case

Fact: I’m the lone Keeping up with the Kardashians viewer and I couldn’t resist testing out the Lumee case the kurvy klan is always using to brighten their selfie game. Said case lights up like a friggin’ Christmas tree and gives skin an angelic glow in iPhone photos and is a great topic of conversation for when you’re at a dinner party and the conversation comes to a boring lull. I also use it as a handy flashlight or as a means to temporarily blind my children for when they’re acting up (kidding!). 

Game changing selfie light aside, I recently attended at chi chi Givenchy Beauty luncheon at Casa Tua (where the risotto is so good — it makes me wanna smack yo mama) where we were introduced to the latest color palettes and innovations. I’m totally feeling their new lipsticks.

I also got to wear my new fave snow leopard print M2Malletier handbag  and there’s something to be said about first-time wears, right? I get all excited pulling new bags out of their protective cases and hitting the town with them for the first time. The joyous sentiment is much like the way I feel when I hop on the scale and realize I’ve lost a pound. Am I alone in this feeling??

If Wearing My Fur Coat to Morning Drop-Off Is Wrong, Then I Don’t Want to Be Right

FINALLY! It’s like the Lord is answering my prayers and he affably graced Miami with some cooler temps. 

Can I get a, “Hallelujah”?

With this said, I obviously busted out one of my more causal furs from my son’s closet (because that’s where my winter wardrobe is stored seeing as my closet is the size of a puny Porta Potty). My husband made fun of me for wearing it in 72-degree weather but I was all like, “Dude, I have two days out of 365 to wear it so DEAL WITH IT. Let me be Upper East Side NYC for a hit minute, MISTER.”

He was rendered speechless of course because I’m batshit crazy.

Either way, I will steadfastly continue wearing decadent furs to this kiddos’ morning drop-off because life is too short for them to dwell in 6-year-old’s closet. Besides, those Upper East Side mamas are LIT.
