Okay, you guys are already familiar with this dress from my Keeping Inspired post. Well, this is the official feature. Some of you may not have known but, a lot of my style consists of things that are just easy to wear: dresses, skirts, loose tops & pants because it’s just who I am. Seriously, I literally started wearing jeans just a few years ago (never used to be a huge fan, too hot in Miami).

Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend a beach wedding. The invite stressed beachy-casual which surprisingly, is harder than one may think.

I’m proud to say I’m growing and it took a little perspective for me to see just how much. You see the thing with growth is that it’s easy to miss. I believe we often measure our personal success and growth through comparison to other people. Although a little dose of that can be good to further our motivation, there’s a fine line between motivation and envy.

It’s finally happened; we have officially entered winter in Miami. Even if only for a few days, something tells me I’m not the only one soaking up this cooler weather. This passed week was Miami Art Week, which means everyone with the slightest interest in art came out to celebrate in the form of visiting art galleries, viewing live performances, viewing installations or just having drinks at a bar (hey, we don’t judge here). It was nice to see everyone out and about.

I recently returned from a 5-day trip to Boston
which was amazing, to say the least. I used to live there so I feel so fortunate to have spent time with some of my favorite people, drink delicious coffee on repeat and explore my old stomping grounds in the fall. Ahh, I can hear the leaves crunching underneath my feet. So, I was particularly proud of myself for this trip because I managed to pack light! Well, light by J standards (i.e. a carry-on luggage and a weekender bag).

It’s safe to say that I love fashion, which is why I started a blog about it. I like to say it’s in my blood as my mom used to style Miss Jamaica pageant contestants while pregnant with me. I think it’s important to remind yourself you have to make clothes work for you and not the other way around.

My favorite day of the week is definitely Sunday. To me, it’s synonymous with perfecting the art of doing nothing, or everything but working.

To me fashion is an art, and like many arts, people tend to place rules and regulations on them. Rules are interesting and I think they make sense in some cases. Writing for example needs grammatical rules set in place simply so that readers can understand what you’re saying.

If you ever asked me what my style was, I honestly don’t think I’d be able to describe it eloquently in one word. I think it’s always ever changing and varies depending on my mood but, one thing I try to stay true to is easy-to-wear pieces; after all warm weather will always have my heart. I love basic t-shirts with a little bit of something extra. Zara was having their huge summer sale a while back so of course I had to stop in. I think they do slightly spruced up basic items really well- which explains why I am posting about this white t-shirt today.
