Miami & Kyboe!

Photography by Karla Garcia Costa

The second I got to Miami, I remembered how much I had missed it. Kyboe! hosted us for the weekend and I can’t thank them enough for the experience. We stayed at the Gale South Beach in Miami, and it’s such a chic boutique hotel with a beautiful rooftop pool. As soon as I checked in, there was a package from the team with my new rose gold watch waiting at the front desk. Kyboe! stole my heart as soon as I saw their 40mm and 48mm watches. I collect watches and I got that little hobby from my father. He loves watches that have a wider face and are a statement piece, which is exactly why I connected with Kyboe! instantly. Their pieces are so versatile and chic! My brother and I styled them all weekend accordingly to our outfits. I styled their stainless steel watch with rose-gold plaiting and you can find it here.

We kicked off our trip with their fashion show where they showcased their watches on a conveyor belt of hands along with models next to the runway. Each color was so bold and unique! We spent our Saturday at the beach at the Setai. The Setai is a beautiful hotel in Miami and if you are looking for luxury and amazing amenities, this is the hotel to visit. I think my favorite part of the trip was the dinner at Marc Bell’s home in Boca Raton. We had a private dinner by Todd English and got the opportunity to meet and converse with the wonderful Kyboe! team. 

This ruffle off the shoulder top was the perfect piece because not only is it a trending silhouette but also lightweight enough to keep me` cool during the humidity. Since my Kyboe! watch was rosegold with gold accents, I kept my accessories were warm toned in camel shades.

Athleisure Comfort

This post is an advertisement by Cotton.

Have you ever wondered what fiber content your clothes are made of?  I’ve partnered with Cotton on this post to show you all that you can be stylish, yet comfortable. Cotton celebrates clothing that is soft and breathable and for as long as I can remember, I grew up checking labels for cotton-based clothing when I shop.

I wanted to style a comfortable athleisure look that you can wear after you work out, run to your local grocery store, as well as to lunch with friends. I wanted a form-fitting, soft dress to compliment the sneakers, which is why I chose cotton as my fiber content. It’s the perfect quality for casual activities and I always get tons of compliments.

I kept the look minimal for a busy day ahead. I am always on the hunt for a comfortable chic fit and I am loving the athleisure trend because now you can look comfy and fashionable.
How often do you check your fiber contents when you shop?

Look out for it next time and you will see how big of a role cotton plays in various items.

Fashion that functions is always in style. That's why so many things in your closet are made of cotton. It's breathable, durable, comfortable, and washable. It's high end and low maintenance. So check your labels for cotton, and feel as good as you look. Learn more: TheFabricOfOurLives.com

Flower Accessories

We have been venturing out to San Diego a lot more these past few weeks and love the slight change of direction in content. With my website relaunch coming along soon, I am looking to create more street style as well as beauty and lifestyle segments.

It was a gloomy day out in San Diego and we made  a quick stop at our local Trader Joe’s to pick up the most perfect peonies. Choosing to include them in the shoot was on the whim but who doesn’t love their flowers hanging out in their handbags instead of vases? I fully embraced the slight wind and slipped into a favorite pair of distressed jeans and this off the shoulder top. I paired them with these pastel blue suede sandals and they were comfortable enough to walk around all day and still give me an extra push in height.
