Très Bien

TAOS-monsterra-leaf-CHRLDR-swimsuit-Pared-Sunnies

You know, I can’t complain about my life these days. Sure I do work a lot, but everything is Très Bien (like this Monstera leaf swimsuit says). This past month, I started a new exercise routine, where I am going to the gym five days a week. I’ve been eating healthy and I have been making it a point to make time to just stop and relax. Having some time to enjoy life with family and friends, or sometimes even by myself.

Embracing with ModCloth

Embracing your body with ModclothLet’s be real, my best feel good moments include me wearing an outfit that makes me feel empowered. It doesn’t matter if it is a power suit or just dressed down for the weekend. When clothes fit right you feel like a million bucks. For today’s post I have partnered with ModCloth, to be part of their #ModClothSquad, and to share with you how I embrace my body. All women have different body shapes, and this is what makes us unique.

A Chic Floral Jumpsuit

Floral Jumpsuit

For a change I bought this floral jumpsuit, as a backup for a baby shower I was attending, but I never wore it. I kept seeing it inside my closet, so decided to give it a try. I’m not one of those people that usually wear jumpsuits, the entire idea of wearing a one piece, specially in one print or color, never appealed to me (except if it’s all black).

To be honest, I was feeling a little self conscious wearing it. I have gained a little weight as of late and thought it wouldn’t look right. But as I finished getting ready I was happy with the outcome. I think the flower pattern worked on my side. My idea was to make this jumpsuit look chic and not like it was borrowed from the 70’s. I wore it with a white long jacket draped over my shoulders and with studded pumps.

The Disney Magic

TAOS-Gissi-Disney-Balloons-HM
Over the weekend, I went to Orlando for the BlogHer 2017 conference with a few of my blogger friends. While being in Orlando, we took some time to experience the Disney Magic, and went to Walt Disney World. The Disney theme parks are a magical place. I got myself the iconic Minnie ears headband and embarked on walking into the parks. We started by going to Animal Kingdom and trying out, the new Pandora area base on the Avatar movies. A truly must see for anyone. This is probably one of the most amazing virtual rides I have been on.  Then we hoped to Magic Kingdom, where we snapped these pictures.

Creating to #StepForward

TAOS-Famous-Footwear-Stepforward-Adidas-9For this post, I am teaming up with Famous Footwear and their new campaign challenging everyone to #stepforward by championing their confidence to be their best self. I stepforward, everyday by pushing myself to try and do new things.  In my artwork, you can see that I typically use paper as my canvas, it is what makes me feel more comfortable, but art can be expressed in different canvases. I just have to add some lines and brushstrokes on different mediums, like these Adidas Baseline Sneakers, and create an unique pair.

Magique & Pink

TAOS-Victoria-Beckham-Saint-Laurent-Tribute-J-Crew-tote

I think I haven’t seen a magic show since I was a kid. I like the idea of illusions and such, so I was delighted when I was invited to the Faena Theater to see Kevin & Caruso’s Magique. This is a show for all ages, and trust me I went in thinking this was going to be a few magic card tricks that I could figure out, but I have to say it was a very surprising night.

Portland, Maine

Portland, Maine TravelI took a quick 24 hour trip to Portland, Maine, to see a little snow and eat some yummy lobsters. I love the idea of being in a place for just a day, because you have to quickly move around and see as much as possible and visit the right places to feel the sense of the town or city that I am traveling to.

Leopardy red

taos-ootd-kohls-jlo-leopard-dress-backI’m really not a person that wears to many prints,  yet alone leopard, but while pulling looks for a client, I found this bright red leopard dress and I fell in love with it. Of course, I knew that for me to feel confident wearing it out, and not have people starting at me, New York was the place to do it. Because I was wearing this outfit during New York  fashion week, I decided to opt for sneakers, as I was going to be running around all day in between shows and you know me and comfort.

Fall Transition

TAOS-Fall-Fashion-lbd-otk-bootsTransitioning to Fall Fashion in Miami is very tricky. We are in September and it is still very warm here in South Florida, but in the essence of wanting to wear boots and darker colors and looking like there is another season here, you have to resort to tweaks to your outfit. Here is one tip I follow, I opt for a light weight fabric.  Like this black ribbed cotton tank dress. The thin fabric helps for sure to transpire in this weather and it is great because its airy and comfy, also you still can’t wear anything lined yet without melting away. I wore it with over the knee high boots and a wide brim black fedora hat, that has been sitting for a few months in my closet looking for a chance to be worn.
