INSPIRATION | Resort Wear

This Friday, I will be doing a shoot for Marriott's Harbor and was asked to bring "resort wear" attire. I have lived in the the resort capitol of the United States for more than a decade now, I still have no idea what this means. I mean I am usually in skinny jeans, boots and a tee whenever I go on vacation morning, noon, or night, so I never pay that close attention to what I am wearing. I know what Florida's idea of resort wear entails: shorts, flops, and usually some tropical motif to validate that you live in Florida. I was told I would get extra brownie points if I had a caftan.

Google is my friend.

I researched the heck out of this style of clothing and had NO idea that there is actually a niche for Resort Wear (the season in between winter and spring fashion lines). Apparently designers needed something to fill their already busy schedules and came up with this genre of clothing. At any rate, I found some looks more up my alley, with designers like Chloe and Stella McCartney relieving a tomgirl like me from having to succumb to commercialized Jimmy Buffet fashion.

50 DOLLAR CHALLENGE | GAP

Good things come to those who wait.

Yesterday was pay day. I wanted to update my wardrobe with more basic and classic items that could be worn with anything. Thursday, I went to GAP and found they were having a 50% off sale...but I was only browsing. I just wanted to see what was available so that I would know whether it was worth it or not to come back on Friday. Well, with Friday came the additional 40% off. That's right. I was elated. $160 worth of pants for less than $50!! Oh it is so, Joe!

FASHION FRIDAYS | Tropical Print

TRENDING | Tropical Prints

TRENDING | Tropical Prints by andiaschehera featuring high-waisted shorts


Summer happened 3 weeks ago for the US, but Florida has had its fill since January. I have been clinging onto winter with my baggy sweaters, long sleeve button ups, boots and black attire, but I guess its time to let the warmth in a little. I think fashion has finally gotten the hang of Hawaiian print: as long as it is paired with a structured solid color and the print doesn't flow too much (we are not going for the sunburned tourist effect) I think this print can stick around for a little while.

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?!

Wowzas. I have been away for an incredibly long time. What have I been doing with myself and why haven't there been any recent fashion photos? Well for the last month and a half I have been overseeing other photo shoots and working on the upcoming fashion show that I told you all I wanted to accomplish this year. Then a week ago, my "tom" got the better of me and I sprained my ankle playing basketball. I won, so that it is all that matters. I got dubbed "Crutchy" (for any Newsies fans out there) by my sister and I have been hobbling around ever since then.

I did happen to squeeze in a photo shoot with OPP this past Wednesday, while balancing most of my weight to my good foot, so as soon as I get those pictures I will post them for sure! But I do have a lot of post coming up this week because I have been pinteresting like crazy trying to get inspired for the summer, which for Florida has been here since January. Anyway, stay up to date on my life via my INSTAGRAM, swollen foot, wild things, and all.
