Jeans and Heels
*Every city has it’s uniform*
Hey Birds, it’s been awhile and I could not be more excited to be back and bring you the final installment of my 3 part Miami Vs.NYC series. This series was a way for me to say celebrate the two cities that I have had a giant love triangle with over the past decade, and of course, say goodbye in the best way I know how, with colorful pictures of my black and white wardrobe.
The series was also *supposed* to be a sort of countdown till I moved to New York in January. However, life got in the way ( as it tends to ) and I experienced a raging flu, a snow storm, and a 1,000 mile move that sort of pressed paused on the whole thing. A not so gentle reminder for me, that even the smoothest of transitions will still be…a transition. Plus, Miami never makes it for me to leave, she’s always kicking and screaming at the door as I’m getting in the car. So in attempt to sympathize and soothe her broken heart, I dedicate this whole look and post to Miami.
There will be no comparisons to the city I now reside in, no playful bashing of my hometown, just celebrating the things I love about it. Like the Croquettas and Cafecito that I had before shooting this very look, or the soft early morning sun that was over Wynwood that day that provided the perfect lighting, or simply the unicorn flamingo mural I used as my backdrop that was magically Miami. She pulled all of these off effortlessly, probably in an attempt to make me realize what I would be missing (i.e. showing my midriff in winter), or maybe just saying goodbye.But there I was, proudly in Miami uniform: tight jeans, flashy heels, and little bit of skin. I paired my favorite high waisted jeans (very stretchy) with my favorite crop that I have been wearing all year from Covetique . I layered a rich camel colored trench from DressLily and topped the look off with shimmery pumps for a very Miami-esque touch of glam. Lastly, my leopard clutch was a no brainer. Everything seemed to just work, and Miami seemed to smile down on me with approval as it was a nice, cool morning with no humidity and a light breeze that left my hair in tact.
Thank you Miami for inspiring my favorite look to date, and giving me one last great shoot. With out you the Chronicles wouldn’t even be a thing and then again neither would I…
You will be missed.
On to this bird’s next adventure… stay tuned!
