All Pink Outfit

All Pink Outfit illustrationI am the girliest of girls when it comes to cutesy and pink things. I just love everything pink, and when I saw that there was a pop-up Museum of Ice Cream in town, I knew I had to go. The Museum  is an instagram (millennial pink) dream. The popularity of this venue made it be sold out every time I would check to buy tickets. But finally a few weeks before it’s final round my sister was able to find tickets to attend. Although it is a little pricey to go, it is all worth it when you dive into the sprinkle pool and start taking pictures of basically everything. Now don’t expect this to be an educational museum, it is more of an interactive venue that you go thru exhibits, more like a gallery I would say. While you eat ice cream as you move thru the exhibits.

Obviously I had to dress up with an outfit that match the museum so I opted to wear all pink! I got these bright pink paper bag pants and wore it with the Pink as my Vibes t-shirt from the line of my friend Annie The Alchemist.

The Everyday Look

The Everyday Look

I feel that in the past year, I have been dressing more casual. Using as an Everyday Look, basic pieces. It all comes about in my essence of simplifying my day to day. Typically I have really long work days. They start at the gym at 5am and then it goes into a packed day meetings and work. In the middle of all this, I go to fashion events or head on to draw fashion illustrations either for me of for a client.

It sounds like a lot, but this is what bloggers that have very demanding day jobs do. All because we really love sharing stories, and for me sharing my artwork and fashion ideas. So saving a few minutes, everyday. Specially while dressing up, comes as a precious earning. So I can expend less time thinking what to wear, and in that time do things that I love. It is just so much easier when outfits are put together using basic apparel. They look good and kinda pulled together.

Transitioning Layering for Fall

 

If you are in Miami you know we just had a few days of “cold” weather. For us meaning we can start Transitioning Layering for Fall, and take out a few winter pieces to wear in south Florida. One of my favorite ways to do this, is by taking a dress I wore during the summer and wearing it together with a turtleneck underneath.

The weather here it is still not enough to wear boots, but I can totally see this look with knee high boots, or maybe ankle booties in a blush tone, just like these thick heel pumps. I wanted to break up the girly-ness of this dress by adding a fisherman cap and a dark purple lipstick.  Because a little change is good.

Fall with Modcloth

Modcloth FallFinally fall is here!, I have to say this is my favorite season of the year. I love layering things and there is so much you can play with outfits. For this post I collaborated with Modcloth, to show a few of my favorite pieces of the Modcloth Fall collection. Typically, you see that I like traveling around these months to colder locations. And take advantage of the weather and wear pretty outfits with coats and boots etc. I adore how well put together and polished I look, just by throwing on a statement coat over jeans and a sweater.

Summer Kimono

TAOS-Cult-gaia-zara-kimono-jcpenney-swim

I’ve found that this summer, I have been wearing a Summer Kimono non-stop. I wear it as a beach/pool cover up, over a one piece swimsuit, or add some skinny jeans or shorts to this exact same look, to go out to brunch or drinks. I particularly love the floral prints on a dark background, like the one I’m wearing on this post. Having so many colors, it matches with almost everything. And of course, I have been wearing it with the other two summer accessory trends that you will find every blogger wearing: a wooden (or rope) retro style bag with a funky shape (the Ark bag) and silky knot sandals, in this case in a yellow mustardy color.

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.

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.
