Sometime last year I discovered what is now one of my favorite stores, Purificación García at the Village of Merrick Park. I thought I had made an epic fashion discovery, but after bragging to my future sister-in-law, it turned out that PG (as the Spanos call it,) is a huge deal in Spain. The ready-to-wear and accessories boutique has become my go-to for affordable luxury, namely handbags, with chic leather crossbodies and quilted shoulder bags starting at around $100. (Remember this tote?)

Experiencing festival FOMO? With an endless assortment of gladiator sandals, flash tats and flower crowns flooding Instagram feeds over the past two weeks it’s hard to escape the phenomenon that is a music (err, fashion?) festival. But the truth is you don’t need to jet to Palm Springs to rock the boho princess look. In Miami you can take a jaunt down to the Wynwood Walls for a selfie-sesh, or if you’re actually into the music thing check out Lagniappe – located at the intersection of Midtown, Wynwood and Design District, the laid back lounge offers live music every night. The outdoor terrace is illuminated by bistro lights and strewn with mismatched patio furniture across a dirt floor, which is practically like being at a festival (sans the giant butterfly and Ferris wheel.)

Lacoste is the official outfitter of this year's Miami Open Tennis Tournament, which kicked off yesterday in Key Biscayne. The annual tennis event has held a myriad of names over the years, (the Lipton, Sony Ericsson, and most recently the Sony Open,) but always marks the official start of spring with a slew of tennis stars and sports enthusiasts descending upon the Magic City. I have enjoyed attending the tournament for years, and this time I'm honored to be taking part as a brand ambassador for Lacoste!

I don’t consider myself a “jeans and a t-shirt” kind of girl, but some days my fashion brain just wants a break and I reach for the basics. Take for example last Saturday, when I headed to the Coral Gables Farmers Market with my camera-toting sidekick Andrea. The market happens every Saturday during spring in front of City Hall, and I love to go and stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. The weather was beautiful, but sweltering, so we cooled off with a fresh green smoothie and mango lemonade. (I had never tried the latter and am officially hooked! Delicioso!)
