Recently I’ve been loving to add a watch to my looks, its a simple way to make your look more classy and sophisticated. And it’s a functional accessory!
I discovered JORD Watches and instantly fell in love with their brand, message and watches! JORD is known for their hand made, customizable wooden bands. When I tell you the packaging and watch smelled like it was take straight from the forest, I mean it!
I wanted to get a watch that would fit with my style, something not too small, but not too large and a metal that already matches the majority of jewelry I wear. So instantly the rose gold popped out to me! I find rose gold to be easy to style and the Koa wood band compliments the rose gold perfectly!
You can bet this watch is going to be making several appearances in my upcoming looks.
My watch is the Koa & Rose Gold from the CORA series. For each of the different woods used, JORD has created an amazing guide describing the wood and level of sustainability! You can see more here.
Koa is a finely ground golden wood, with rose tones. It is native to Hawaii and is their second most common tree, it is a flowering tree and is a part of the pea family! Koa means brave, bold, fearless and comes from the Hawaiian language.
This year for Miami Swim Week I kept things a little more low key and only attending a few events that were hosted by my close friends. One of said events was a pop-up at Moreno’s Cuba Restaurant in South Beach, hosted by Bikini On Demand. Where four different designers were showcasing their newest swimwear pieces.
Of course I couldn’t go to the event without sporting my new favorite look from Lilac and Lilies Boutique. The same boutique that styled by New York Fashion Week trip! And I have to say, these pants are some of my new favorites!
You guys, I think I’ve found my new favorite restaurant! Chotto Matte, off Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach. It’s a little hidden and off the main path, but once I stepped inside it was like walking into a whole different area. The design and decor inside is stunning, and the food was even better! If you’re into exotic cocktails and a contemporary sushi experience, Chotto Matte is right up your ally. I dined on their vegetarian bento box and the food it was phenomenal, already planning my next reservation asap!
Not sure if you can tell… But red is my favorite color, and this red Lilac and Lilies dress was one of the most flattering pieces I wore during my NYFW events. And it perfectly paired with the Frida Kahlo purse, which I received endless compliments on.
This night in NYC was a particularly freezing one, that my Miami blood was not prepared for. But that aside, we watched one of the most entertaining fashion shows, the YEROC by Corey Woods. The pieces were fantastic and the performance was one for the books.
We found another amazing vegan restaurant, that I wish would make its way down South. Blossoms, was my all time favorite restaurant for the trip, the full menu was vegan and their Truffle, Mushroom Pizza was insanely delicious!
My look for this nights show was one of my favorite pieces from Lilac and Lilies Boutique, in Fort Lauderdale Florida, this flattering white dress. Paired with our Livin’ the MAD Life “Winter Sparkle” tote.
