Florals + Dedications

IMG_5333_EDITED

The weather is finally changing a bit here in Miami and it couldn’t make me any happier. I know what you’re probably thinking though, “Another kimono?”. The answer is yes.. I can’t help it! If I could live in kimono cardigans year-long I would! This particular one was a steal at TJ Maxx, I love random finds 🙂

Kimonos are an easy way of dressing up an outfit or how I like to say, they add some character. The fringe detail on the trim makes this a perfect staple for Fall because it gives the right amount of coverage for breezy days like this particular afternoon. And if you haven’t caught on by now, fringe is one of the top trends this season.

I decided to keep it simple since the kimono has an all around beautiful floral print and wear it over a plain gray tank. I love mixing fabrics so I decided to pair with my fave lace shorts and tucked-in my top. Adding a pair of faux leather booties like these makes for an edgier Fall attire.

On the day these pictures were taken, my family received the news that my uncle’s surgery had not gone as planned. The day was beautiful & I just wanted to be outdoors. Little did we know he was rapidly slipping away.

If there’s anything I’m taking from the last conversation he & I had was “to stop wasting time, mija” like he would say. And you know what, Tio? You were so right.

In Loving Memory of Roberto Perez, RIP my angel ❤.

XO,
