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!
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to step into a real life Alice in Wonderland rabbit hole, La Muse Cafe is the place for you. It’s a combination of Avant Art Gallery and a gorgeous, whimsical cafe, located in the Epic Hotel in Downtown Miami.
Not only is the atmosphere a fairytale, but the food is incredible and way better than your typical American style cafe.
Livin’ the MAD Life has now launched our newest collection “Miami Summer” and can I just say, I am totally in love with every piece from this collection! Especially the “Melon Jolly” Travel Bag. I can’t wait until my next trip to sport around my matching handbag, travel bag and cosmetic case. If this doesn’t say Miami, I don’t know what does!
And I’m also in love with the lemons, for a more classy look. I’ve been carrying around my “Summer Citrus” Classic Handbag for the last few weeks, and it’s the easiest bag to style and wear with any look!
So we all know the “free the nip” movement, which I’m all for. Comfort is key. But sometimes a good bra is needed from time to time.
I used to stick to a classic Victoria’s Secret bra, like most of us. But a couple of months ago I decided to try out Upbra. I ordered the nude, both with strap and strapless, finding a good strapless bra is always a struggle, so I wanted to test these out and see if they could get the job done.
And let me tell you, I am obsessed! Coming from a girl who usually does not wear a bra, I have been wearing these all the time! The strapless is by far my favorite, because it actually gives you support, lift and fits with all of my styles of top. Upbra honestly made me prefer to wear a bra again, which is a major deal for me! Hahaha
And you guys know me, I always have to share the amazing finds I come across, and I don’t think there has been a day so far, that I haven’t used one of my Upbra’s.

Currently obsessed with satin everything! This gorgeous and comfy satin top was the inspiration for this look, paired with basic black culottes and a hand painted original, vintage purse to pull it all together.
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.
Another night in New York for New York Fashion Week. More amazing designers and more amazing food and wine! These boots were most definitely the show stopper of my look for this nights shows. Finding thigh high boots, that are actually thigh high on me, are a bit of a struggle, as I am 5 11′ and my legs are a bit longer than the average gal. Needless to say, I was one happy camper when I saw these maroon babes while shopping in SoHo. And once again, with a Lilac and Lilies favorite dress. This single strapped, suede material dress was a show stopper!
Another great spot, not vegan, but a really cool atmosphere restaurant is Cipriani. The Hadid sisters were dining in Cipriani Downtown with us this same night, a celebrity favorite.
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.
Our trip for New York Fashion Week was nothing less than wonderful. We tried some amazing vegan foods, enjoyed stunning runway shows and explored parts of the city that we have never been to.
This day was my Zara look, I wanted something fun and classy, but wearable. Which is why I went with a chunky heeled bootie, to carry me around the city for a full day.
We spent most of the day in SoHo, aka South of Houston rd., and it was the most charming little space! We stopped by Bulletin.Co, a female empowering, pink wonder world, that needs to be experienced at least once! And we ate at By.CHLOE for breakfast and lunch! It’s so nice having full vegan restaurants at the tip of your fingers, it makes ordering much more simple!
