New summer, new plans. For me, this summer will be about relaxing, unwinding and, of course, some exploring. As an OOO Expert, I know a thing or two about vacationing like a pro. The beautiful part of living in Miami is that even when you stay in town, it still feels like a vacation. My go-to tip: I like to head to a hotel in South Beach for the perfect staycation weekend.
I teamed up with Vilebrequin to show you how their new High Summer collection is perfect for all summer travels, even when you’re staying local.
This maxi dress is a staple dress that can be dressed down for a casual lunch on the beach or dressed up with jewelry for a fancy dinner (preferably seafood…my favorite).
Cooling down from the summer heat: there’s nothing more refreshing than a cool dip after working on a tan. This classic one piece is perfect from the beach to the pool, and maybe even to the bar with some denim shorts.
It is important to me to fill my closet with versatile pieces–something that works for many occasions. I’m also a sucker for high-quality, comfortable pants that can be worn lounging at home or out and about. This one piece can also easily be turned into a bodysuit when paired with high-waisted jeans or shorts.
No matter what your summer plans are, comfort and style are key. I’m so excited to spend the rest of the season relaxing in style.
This post was in partnership with Vilebrequin.
For one week out of the year, Miami turns into "the city that doesn't sleep". If you're like me, you want to try to do every single thing possible and over book your schedule times 3. Hopefully you're not like me.
Although I'm a local to Miami, unlike the majority of visitors for Art Basel, I'm still trying to master how to tackle it myself! For the past 2 years, I didn't feel like I took advantage of this awesome week. I worked events and went to an art gallery here or there. This year I wanted to dive in. Unfortunately, the universe aligned my final exams to be the same week. As much as I wanted to pretend 60% of my final grades didn't depend on this week, I did what any other responsible yet FOMO driven college student would do- Try to do both at the same time.
Originally, I wanted to work with a stylist for my looks but I didn't end up having time to meet with someone (remember that whole trying to do both thing?) So I ran to one of my favorite places ever, Buffalo Exchange in Downtown Hollywood. I had an idea of the types of looks I wanted to go for, so I grabbed whatever caught my eye. Since my usual wardrobe is very casual & comfy, I wanted to do something different for me...more out there. I don't always look like a fashionista, but when I do, Art Basel is my excuse.
