BAG. Vintage

My best friend and I bought our first skateboards at age 14. They were both yellow.
Looking back, I think we just wanted to check out all the "hotties" at the skate park.

Today is such a gloomy day, but this Wild Fox look-book seems to perfectly reflect my mood.
This morning I hung out with some of my dearest friends. We talked and had ice coffees at our favorite coffee shop. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by such a creatively talented group of women who keep me inspired.  I believe, that in order to live a happy life, it's important to surround yourself with the right company. Needless to say, this has always proven to be true.

Pink Cadillac on South Beach with Photographer-- Gabe Sanchez

It's the Pink Cadillacs and the Ocean Breeze.
It's her Golden skin and Angelic hair. 
It's the top down and the retro vibes.
It's that 8th and Ocean kind of life.
It's bow-tied floors and balconies.
It's pastel pinks and palm trees.
It's the salt in the air and the warmth on your skin. 
It's the sun in your heart.
  It's a place made of dreams. 
--South Beach

Wynwood Miami - Where beauty and art is all around.

Hey guys! 

Here's a post from Miami's art district, better known as, Wynwood- Miami
Wynwood is famous for its art galleries and street-art installations. You can also find unique retail stores, amazing restuarants, and eclectic bars- all within walking distance from each other. It was so much fun photographing this look, here! I'm just in awe of Wynwood's creative energy and inspiration.  

Here, I'm rocking my favorite new pair of shorts from French Connection (FCUK).
They are white, which means these bottoms can go with almost anything in my wardrobe, and they're high waisted. I LOVE HIGH WAISTED. It makes my legs look super long. I'm also really loving the fact that these shorts can be paired with so many different looks, dressed up or down. 

The navy blue crop top makes for a perfect match! Don't you agree?
In my opinion,  it's also just a great basic to have (in any color).  I love this outfit...It's very simple, yet stylish. My sandals are also from FCUK and I've been obsessed with them ever since I got them.

Chicago bound!

Heading out to Chicago on Monday- Its time for my annual summer trip to the windy city. Make sure you follow me on Instagram @SKINNYINTERN if you want to keep up with me while I explore.
I will be sharing some of favorite restaurants (Deep dish pizza, anyone?), places to stay, where the locals go, and of course, lots of shopping!

When its comes to eating in Chicago and trying to eat healthy, its seems almost impossible. Im really conscious of what I put into my body and if I'm being completely honest, I get a little food depressed when I cant find healthy when traveling. I mean, a girl can only eat so many slices of plain cheese pizza before burning out. Thats why I've made it my mission to discover and share some of my favorite healthy restaurants while I'm there. 

In the past, I've stayed at some really great hotels in the downtown area. One of my favorites being the, Hotel Monaco. Ive stayed here a few times and I just love it. This hotel has gorgeous views of the city and its simply breathtaking. But, this time around, I will be staying somewhere new and I'm prepared to give you all a full review during my stay! This trip is all about the ins-and-outs of this gorgeous city and experiencing so much more than before.

The only thing left to do now, is pack! Easier said, than done.
(Wish me luck. It's a high of 80 degrees during the day with a low of 55 degrees at night.)

It was love at first wear! Featuring:: Mara Hoffman

Hey guys!
Today, I'm sharing a beautiful Mara Hoffman dress, that I instantly fell in love with. It was love at first wear!

 I am a big fan of Mara Hoffman's bold prints and vibrant colors. How do I even begin to explain my obsession with the colors and patterns, here? Inspired by India, rays of life, and positive energy- I feel like I'm looking into a kaleidoscope on acid!
(Lets be clear, I'm not speaking from experience, at all!)  
The fit of this dress is SO perfect and it hugs the body in all of the right places. 
It's truly a great dress for any occasion this summer.
Shop the look locally at Lilac and Lilies.

Playsuits for summer...

Summer has always been my favorite season. My birthday is in July, I was born a water-sign(Cancer), and I can not stand the cold weather...that is why I love living here in south Florida. It's summer almost all year round! 

Playsuits, jumpers, rompers, or whatever you want to call them, are perfect for hot summer days! I especially love this printed romper from Lilac & Lilies. Paired perfectly with this look, are these white/metallic strappy, gladiator-like sandals. 

(White and metallic are super trendy this season!)

 DarlingJuliet (photographer), first brought me to this secret photo-spot a few years ago {See post here} and we never get tired of shooting here. 
Check-out her lovely work here, her talent is beyond words!
