no work, all play

  Yet another look from my Miami vacation. Every time I wear this dress I get an insane amount of compliments. It's probably the best dress I've bought all summer. It transitions seamlessly from day to night, which makes it perfect for traveling. 
Yesterday I had a bit of a crazed shopping moment at the Bal Harbour Shops and decided that it was totally reasonable to buy 3 pairs of Nicholas Kirkwood shoes and the little YSL beauty feautred above. I didn't even try to justify it. The best impulse buys ever. I stand by my descisions.

warm winds

Another look from our Miami vacation. Can't believe how fast the time has gone by. Secretly wishing  we could extend our trip, but alas we already have new adventures planned for when we get back.
P.S. I'm really loving this whole new flash tats craze, perfect for Maimi where it's too hot to wear a ton of jewelry.

the heat is on

Sam and I are in Miami and we're having a little too much fun. We've been intermingling our vacation with Miami Swim Week and are enjoying all of the festivities. Even though I'm constantly sweating  my face off  and styling my hair in this heat is a joke of epic proportions, I adore Miami. It's my go-to for a relaxing vacation with a dash of spicy nightlife thrown in. Fun Fact: I was born in Cuba (I'm not Cuban though), and I really believe that it has something to do with my adoration of Miami, the people, and the culture.

Sunday Brunch

This is one of my favorite desserts for summer. I love roasted stone fruit and this recipe comes together really well with just a little bit of basil.

Ingredients:
4 large peaches
1 ripe plum
1 cup raspberries
Basil
Serves 4

Directions:
Pre-heat the oven to 350. Cut up the peaches and the plum. Place all the fruit onto a baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 5 -7 minutes. the plum and raspberries will melt into a sauce. Distribute the fruit onto plates and sprinkle with fresh basil confetti.
Serve and enjoy.
Happt Sunday!
