Pokémon go has BLOWN UP. For those of you that aren’t aware of it, check out this subreddit. I’ve been playing nonstop; it’s laced with nostalgia and super easy to get the hang of. Try it. Everyone is doing it. Finally, all of the people that sit inside all day get to wear their athleisure attire for something other than playing video games inside. It’s great for everyone! If you’re going to play, make sure you’re safe about it, pay attention to your surroundings. Don’t Pokémon go & drive!

This fourth of July was all about denim! I’ve always wanted to do a cheesy photo shoot with an American flag. This can now get checked off from my bucket list. I somehow was able to rope my cousin into my shenanigans. We hung out and got ready for warped tour. He let my borrow his awesome Levi’s vest. It was great.
Here are my favorite Classics to listen to around Independence day:
My friends helped me raid my closet for a coffee date! I know it feels like summer, but I don’t feel like myself without my boots. I had fun checking out this coffee spot, Warsaw Coffee, in Fort Lauderdale. I had the best soy latte I’ve had in a long time and some great conversation. I would totally recommend a visit. Do you know any great local coffee spots in south Florida? Please let me know below!

Tomorrow marks the 1st day of fall!
Fantasy: Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the breeze. Leaves changing colors. Brisk walks to happy hour after work. Cool weather.
Reality: Hurricane season. HUMID HOT AIR. Palm fronds falling onto the street. Slow terrible traffic ’cause no one can seem to drive in the rain. Rain in your nice suede booties.
I can’t wait to leave summer behind. Unfortunately, it’s not going to feel like fall here until at least the end of October. A gal can dream! I’ll probably be visiting NYC shortly, so I might as well throw some inspiration together. All the sale emails flooding my inbox aren’t any help to my budgeting. Salt City Optics
has some great prescription eyewear and sunglasses; they also offer a coupon code for 20% off your complete prescription eyewear order ( code: Sunny20 ) J. Crew is also having a sale ( an extra 30% off final sale items, code: TIMETOSHOP) These two in combination left me day dreaming. My first weekend in NYC would look like this:
This would be my ideal play list for my stroll to happy hour:

Sometimes people ask me if I’m seeing anyone. Not ever sure how to reply to that so I tell them that I am, her name is Opal, and we live together in a cozy corner of the Everglades. Sometimes we get dressed up and go out. Sometimes we talk long rides over to the grocery store. But mostly we just hang out in our neighborhood.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Opal, my partner:

Okay, so it’s summer year round here. However, public schools officially start up again next week. This means the easy breezy days of a short commute from work are over!

This weekend I attended Style Festival hosted at the Dadeland mall by Refinery29 with Erica from A Touch of Leopard. It was fun! There were so many awesome & fashionable people hanging out in one place. Activities included styled merchandise booths, free flash tattoos, customizable t-shirts, a fancy photo booth that prints photos you post on social media with their hashtag, hair braiding, and last but not least: TWIN SHADOW.
My outfit includes a tiny Romper I purchased from DailyLook and some boots I bought on Amazon a while ago.
Some cool DJs played:
I made a few friends and snuck a few photos of the crowd:
And finally, Twin Shadow!!!!!!!
If you guys haven’t checked out Twin Shadow you really should. They’re amazing! They recently endured a bus accident and are back on the road playing shows. The lead, George Lewis Jr., is a Dominican-American based out of Brooklyn, New York. At the show he says the first place he lived in the US was Miami and they’ll be playing more shows down here soon.
Looking for that nautical Americana look? Look no further! Andrew will show us the way while he jams out on his fancy guitar.
