I’ve been back in Miami for a week and am loving it. Miami is best when you’ve been away. The warmth immediately accepts you and all worries seem less troublesome. I’ve been hitting up all my favorite spots and getting myself organized. A few changes happened on the beach since I’ve been gone. I noticed that La Belle Rebelle is opening a location on Washington Avenue. I absolutely love this swimwear brand and am eager to have a location so close to me. Not sure when it’s opening, but I’ll send out a tweet and update this post when I find out.
What else. Oh! Icebox moved to from Lincoln Road to a bigger location on Purdy Avenue. Right next to the new Ice Box is a newly opened Panther coffee. So dope. David and I used to drive to Wynwood (original Panther location) on occasion just for two coffees, now it’s just five minutes away. Pinkberry yogurt opened on Ocean Drive while I was gone too. It’s literally next door to the Versace Mansion, so that’s just extra reason to eat fro-yo on a park bench day dreaming about the shenanigans that went down in the 90s.
New coffee, bikini and breakfast spots are always fun, but the most exciting new development since back in Miami is my new shoes! I cannot stop rocking these metallic gladiator sandals, and I don’t wanna stop. They make me feel like a badass and they go with everything. David took these photos on Saturday morning at South Point in Miami Beach. I really wanted to pair my new sandals with something natural and strong, the rocks and ocean felt perfect.
I’m so inspired by Miami again – I’m looking forward to producing some kick-ass shoots over the next two months. #SummerIsComing xx

I’m heading back to my home in Miami on Sunday. It’s bitter sweet because I have enjoyed my time in New York so much. I love the city and look forward to coming back here more often.
I want to thank the Mobile Nations team for hosting my stay and for being kick-ass people. I’ve learned so much more about styling menswear, online publishing and creating good content. I can’t wait for the #TM2013 launch and to be able to talk about the huge project the Mobile Nations team has been cooking up while here in NYC. (And mostly looking forward to adding Crackberry Kevin’s looks to my portfolio, duh)
Next posts will be from Miami! It’s been real. x
Men’s jacket, borrowed from David. Nasty Gal crop top. Vinage Levi shorts. Zara boots.
I’m on the hunt for the perfect summer clutch. I’ve been eyeing Backstage’s boxed perspex clutch for what feels like ages. I might have to finally pull the trigger and order it. Few accessories feel as light and summery as a handbag you can see through. I put together this hit-list of acrylic bags I’m feeling. Which is your fave? x
Clockwise from top left: Backstage 5.0 Transparent clutch. Nasty Gal Summer clutch in pink. CC Skye Sunset Boulevard clutch. 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute clutch in clear. Charlotte Olympia Pandora clutch with Spider clasp. Charlotte Olympia Bamboo Pandora Clutch. Coast Adara Floral clutch.
There’s nothing particularly awesome going on in these photos other than the fact that I am carrying a different phone in every pic. I use both an iPhone and Blackberry Z10. I recently switched my main phone to a Z10 and am LOVING it, but I can’t let go of Instagram and never want to either. Until BB gets Insta, I’ll be forced to keep my iPhone in the game. I have nothing against Apple products, I have a Macbook and an iMac, but I also like to see what else is out there.
I tagged along with David and the Mobile Nations team last Friday on a long walk through downtown Manhattan. We stopped for Dim Sum in China Town, saw the bull statue with a million other tourists on Wall Street and meet a guy with Google glasses in meat packing area. It was a fun day! xx
Here I go channeling one of my favorite style icons, Gwen Stafani. Gwen is one of the most beautiful and timelessly hot women ever. I live for her white hair and only hope I can maintain mine with a fraction of her commitment. I just google searched “gwen stefani buns” and seriously she doesn’t have hint of dark root in a single photo within the last ten years. Way to set a literal platinum standard!
Since I am back and forth to NYC from MIA and my hair stylist (Patrick Navarro) splits his time between NYC and South Carolina, I’ll be dealing with some roots. It’s okay – I look forward to embracing the 90s grunge/ MET ball Punk vibes going on right now.
In other news…Our Prince of Peace just hooked it up with some new items for Spring and this leather sleeved crop top is one of them. I thought it was kind of perfect for my buns look and asked David to take a quick studio portrait to share.
I have a bunch of posts coming up and one series on a rooftop! xx
