Sunnies with lens that reflect are everywhere this summer. I was recently introduced to eyewear brand, Italia Independent, and they make the best ones I’ve seen so far. I put together a few of my faves above. xx

I went back to my hometown in Naples, Fl this weekend to visit for Father’s Day. Of course, I had to squeeze in a photo shoot and convince my pops to join in the fun. Turned out, he is a natural in front of the camera and these photos were so awesome to create.
I am wearing a couple items from a new line that I am strongly feeling – Ego Soleil. The collection is perfect for Miami summertime. I’m so obssesed with the matching blue printed shorts and top I am wearing in the first photo. #SOGOOD. I have more looks from Ego Soliel coming up this week, so stay tuned.
THANK-YOU Dad for being a part of this shoot. Love you! xx

Here go the last looks from my collaboration with Dana Maxx. I love to style a few pieces from a collection because it allows me to really dive into a brand’s vibe. Making Dana Maxx looks my own and sharing the photos with readers is a damn pleasure! I hope you dig these and all the Sunshine State photos from last week.
For the last Dana Maxx looks, I have a day-to-night series. It’s hot and rainy in Miami so the white dress might be a risk for the next couple of weeks, but it’s double-lined and is smoking hot. I took my chances.
This week I started planning hard for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim taking place in July. Now, it’s all about SWIM, baby. #SUMMERTIME
I have been trying to shoot these fur sandals for months. It took me awhile to find a combo I found both wearable and the right amount of Celine influence. I don’t know if this look is exactly perfect, but I really dig the vibe. The fur kitten heels are actually my mom’s shoes and they used to be my favorite pair to play dress up with when I was young. I know she never used them back then, so I totally nabbed them last Christmas to bring home to Miami. I have enjoyed them as my house slippers ever since. #soluxe
I wore them out for the first time over the weekend while shopping and brunching with David. The weather is in our rainy season, so it was nice to catch sunny weather before an afternoon storm rolled in from the coast. I have a few new posts coming up this week…so come back. xx
I was introduced to a womenswear line by New York designer Dana Maxx a few weeks ago. I instantly loved the spring collection and quickly started planning how I would want to shoot the clothes with David. My first instincts were to shoot in Homestead because it was Memorial Day weekend and Miami gets crazy with tourists. Homestead is quiet and beautiful, so I usually like to shoot there when I have a lot of looks, or when we want to really take our time. It’s a totally different scene compared to shooting street style on Ocean Drive. If you haven’t been out to the orchid green houses in Homestead you are seriously missing out. It’s insane how many varieties of orchids are on sale and just how cheap they are all priced. Plus, from Miami Beach it’s a short 45 minute drive.
Now onto Dana Maxx….I really dig how distinctly Florida the garments feel to me. The collection’s vibrant colors with simple lines and construction remind me of my Mom’s style and her chic friends in Naples, Fl. I like cool, confident and well made clothes.
The floral print pants are my faves, so I had to pair them with my favorite crop top to form a super outfit. If I could wear it over and over, I definitely would. You all know I have no problem with repeating pieces – just never the same way. I have two more Dana Maxx looks coming out this week. Stay tuned. xx
