One of my happy places – the Wynwood Walls in the Miami Arts District. Here are some of my favorite quotes I try to live by to go along with each photo. I hope this special collaboration with @sidewalkerdaily inspires you to explore this lively neighborhood. Much love.

Shoutout to my first (girl) baws I ever had in NYC – Nina Zadeh! I worked at Nina’s start up in New York my first year at FIT. It was my first internship that turned into a job and there were countless moments there that I will never forget. She basically coached me through my first real NY fashion week where I got my first big feature in Cosmo as 1 of NYC’s Top Bloggers. I remember finding out in your living room in the Upper West Side like it was yesterday – insane. I cannot imagine where I would be without this incredible human being. I love you so much and am forever grateful to have someone like you in my life. <3 Ecstatic to be reunited in Miami babe.
Through Nina and this internship/job I also met one of my other best friends who I’ve grown with over the years as well – Jinna Yang aka @greaseandglamour aka the girl who you see all up in my Instagram feed;) To see how much you two have grown makes me want to girl boss even harder. Love you sisters.
(Follow @sidewalkerdaily for the most wanderlust photos you’ve ever seen;) This is just 1 of many projects she’s working on right now but I have to say it’s one of my favorites;)
