#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Perfume Perfection at Babalú

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Babalu-Perfume-Genie-Miami-Beach-Lincoln-Road-Title

We apologize for the fashion silence these past few weeks. We have been extremely busy writing about the food, travel, and culture that comes in droves in late spring. But, rest assured, we have been diligently keeping up with our local fashion happenings, amping up for Miami fashion season, and naturally thinking of you the whole time.

Latest on our radar is news from Babalú Boutique in Miami Beach – you know, the unexpected surprise beneath the stairs in the 1111 Lincoln Road building (the Herzog and De Meuron garage) that stands out with its neon lights and eclectic yet luxurious inventory. In a testament to its founders’ limitless creativity, the chic boutique recently added a cozy room to its small footprint that houses a beautiful perfume bar and an interactive tool called the Perfume Genie that helps you find your favorite fragrance. As perfume amateurs, we were intrigued by the new expansion and the unveiling of its resident magical technology so we bribed our closest friends with bubbles to come check it out with us last week.

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Palms in Panama

Thanks to our Instagram, it is no secret that we love palm trees and we love Panama. Palm trees make an incredible print and they are an integral part of Miami’s iconic image. Panama is a gorgeous country and a no brainer destination for Miami locals. In the spirit of our summer, we wanted to combine both of our tropical obsessions by sharing some photos we shot during our last trip to surf Panama’s Pacific Coast.

Huge props to Hotel Playa Cambutal for being our home away from home in Panama when Miami’s as flat as an ironing board. For a surf family like ours, there is really no better place to escape to than a beautiful hotel on an empty beach with nearly year-round surf.

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Summer Look Inspired by Jose Cuervo

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Reserva-De-La-Familia-Jose-Cuervo-Summer-Look-Title

We know what you’re thinking: how can an outfit be inspired by tequila? Well, if you have a good memory, you remember that two weeks ago we attended the unveiling of this year’s Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia bottle with its new one-of-a-kind design created by Mexican artist Enrique Rosas. If you’ve been keeping track of this year’s summer trends, you know that the color palette of Rosas’s oeuvre d’art are in line with the colors for summer. The blue and white in particular are the perfect inspiration for an on-trend look for our favorite season. So, as we whipped up our favorite tequila, soda and lime cocktails using Reserva de la Familia this Memorial Day Weekend, we let the inspiration take hold.

The resulting look is one of our favorites, mostly because the individual pieces we used to put it together are some of our favorite finds. In fact, the denim top by Bella Dahl, with its loose and effortless fit, is our proudest buy to date. We found it at The Tannery on Boylson Street while we were in Boston for our sister’s graduation last week and we’ve since spotted its unique tail on our Instagram feed so you know its hot, hot hot! The next best part of this outfit is the Perry Street statement necklace that arrived on our door step courtesy of our Rocksbox stylist. The look is very casual – it seems to say “I’m going or coming from a day of sailing” – so the necklace is the perfect way to bring in some glamour.

See! We told you tequila can inspire a fabulous outfit. What do you think? Would you wear it? Which is your favorite piece?

#ThankYouMiami for (Travel) Fashion

Thank-You-Miami-for-Travel-Fashion-Title

Miami has struck a delicate balance between being the ultimate travel destination and offering a great quality of life. However, during high season, the pendulum swings toward catering to visitors and mayhem ensues. So, when Miami is in the peak of tourism season, Miami-ans – particularly Miami Beach locals – travel frequently.

Since early March, we have been on a binge of staycations, vacations, family trips and work trips. And, as the police barricades continue to go up on Ocean, Collins, and Washington, we are preparing to head out for the weekend again. After all, evacuating for Memorial Day is pretty much a local tradition by this point. So as you get ready to pack your bags (again), here’s a round-up on our favorite travel fashion. Bon voyage!

1. Casual, Comfortable Airport Look: This look takes you comfortably through the airport, while still looking cute. The formula? Leather paneled leggings, embellished sneakers, a sweatshirt, a denim jacket, and, if you’re feeling sassy, a beanie. Don’t forget to grab a chic pair of headphones, like our favorite Frends Taylor in Rose Gold.

2. From Airport to Cold Climes: The key to this highly-adaptable look is layers. We started with a sweater vest and layered over a jean jacket for the airplane. As soon as we made it outside, we pulled on this super warm Olivia Pope-inspired coat from The Limited’s Scandal collection.

3. Cute and Casual Roadtrip: When we go on roadtrips, we like to be comfortable but we also like to look chic because we want to be able to get out anywhere and feel confident. A simple, cotton sundress with a denim jacket works best for us. Make sure to mix in flat shoes that are easy to walk in, like these Silence + Noise booties (similar), so you can explore any terrain you encounter.

4. Airport to Cool City: Out of our four looks, this one is our favorite because it encompasses the best parts of the other three outfits. And, most importantly, we can wear it anywhere so we do not have to think twice about changing when we arrive at our destination. The most important part in putting it together is a great pair of overalls. The ones we are wearing are our favorite. Can you believe we found them for less than $40 at Forever 21 (similar)?

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – #TheFallsINDULGE

Last Thursday, we kicked off our Mother’s Day celebrations early by treating our mom (“mamá”) to a day at The Falls Miami and having her join us in co-hosting a special fashion presentation for moms. Mamá lives in Boca and, thanks to Town Center Mall, is super familiar with the Simon Mall routine: lunch, shopping, primping, coffee, more shopping. Despite having a tight schedule, we got everything done with time to spare and created a few special memories along the way. These were our three favorite moments:

1. Seeing our similarities in an unexpected surprise. When we got to Macy’s to pick our looks for the evening, mamá went one way and we went another, only meeting up occasionally to reflect on our selections. We styled ourselves solo, so you can imagine our surprise when we realized that our final outfits were not only from the same exact designer but also featured similar prints. As we said to the audience at the event, “the apple clearly doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – A Reflection On Our Personal Style

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Personal-Style-Reflection-Overalls-Mom-1

We have been reflecting a lot lately. Maybe it’s common for our age or maybe we’re going crazy – nevertheless, these days, our brain has been on nostalgia overdrive. Today, we reminisced super hard as we watched our little sister cross the finish line of her first full marathon. We couldn’t have been more proud of her. We also couldn’t have been more emotional about watching her reach such an incredible milestone.

We’re gearing up for even more waterworks as Mother’s Day quickly approaches. All our recent reflection has emphasized just how important our mom is to us. And, as we prepare to celebrate her on Thursday, April 30th at The Falls INDULGE: Fashion and Fun for Moms event, we can’t help but get teary-eyed at how she has influenced us throughout our life. ¡Ay!, pero es tan emocional that we can’t even… [Read more…]

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Weekending

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Weekend-OOTD-TITLE

It is no secret that one of our favorite local haunts is South Pointe Park. We love it for its gorgeous aesthetic, its killer views, and its versatility. And, while it is our go-to park all week long, we are particularly fond of it on the weekends when it proves the perfect setting for staying active, relaxing, or showing off our beautiful city to our constant stream of visitors.

On Sundays, our favorite afternoon activity is skateboarding to South Pointe Park for a sunset picnic. This adventure, like many daytime activities in South Beach, requires an outfit that is comfortable yet chic. Think the VonTrapp children’s playsuits, just more modern and not made with curtain fabric. [Read more…]
