For the past 4 years, I’ve spent the hottest months out of the year in Miami, and the coldest ones in Providence. Miami decided to stay true to itself for my last summer in the homeland.

Cue loose T’s, tiny shorts, and what I call non-bras (bralettes with no lining or underwire) formed into what I call Non-Clothes. When it’s this hot out, all I ever want to do is be as naked as possible.

Round of applause to Wildfox for creating my favorite ode to 90s T, and just t-shirt in general. Comfiest shirt ever. I get compliments from anyone who can relate. Super cool.

It’s been ages since I felt like blogging but the itch is finally back. This outfit is from a few month back when I was a special guest at Fashion Happy Hour’s July Event, where I spoke about my style and styled my model, Michelle of D.A.M.A. Dolls.

For the event, I wanted something really laid back, cool, and effortless. Sometimes these types of events have the tendency to make people “dress out” (like Fashion Week ‘peacocking’), which if that’s your thing, you do you. My style, especially more recently than this, has been more about practicality and simplicity than anything else. I’ve even transitioned to boyfriend jeans…finally. More on all this soon.

You can find photos of the event below (go ahead and give them a ‘like’ too!):

I’m overdue for a post about what’s going on in my life at the moment. It’ll be around soon! For now, I’m happy in my first apartment ever in Providence and I can’t wait to share more.


305 to My City (AKA I’M MOVING!!)

I’ve been pretty under wraps about this for like 8 months now, but I’m moving! I’m heading back to Rhode Island at the end of this month and I couldn’t be more excited. It may not seem like a huge deal since I’ve been moving there and back every year for the past 4 years, but this time, I’m packing up my life into my car and heading up there indefinitely.

I wasn’t really sure how I was going to make it happen so I haven’t made any official mention of it until now. But basically, after graduation I flew down to Miami, found a job within 5 days, and have been putting in my time to make this possible. I’ve sold a bunch of my unloved belongings on eBay and Poshmark and started selling my artwork as prints. Originally, the plan was to move to Boston and I’m so glad I changed my mind because it would never have been financially possible. I’m still even taking a huge jump here because I’m definitely not THAT financially stable but it’ll work itself out. Anyway, here’s to the next chapter of my life! I’ll try my best to squeeze in some last Miami posts but at this point I’m really trying to spend time with family and friends before I put over a thousand miles between us.

Miami, I love you and you’ll always be home. I’ll be back!
