Chicago bound!

Heading out to Chicago on Monday- Its time for my annual summer trip to the windy city. Make sure you follow me on Instagram @SKINNYINTERN if you want to keep up with me while I explore.
I will be sharing some of favorite restaurants (Deep dish pizza, anyone?), places to stay, where the locals go, and of course, lots of shopping!

When its comes to eating in Chicago and trying to eat healthy, its seems almost impossible. Im really conscious of what I put into my body and if I'm being completely honest, I get a little food depressed when I cant find healthy when traveling. I mean, a girl can only eat so many slices of plain cheese pizza before burning out. Thats why I've made it my mission to discover and share some of my favorite healthy restaurants while I'm there. 

In the past, I've stayed at some really great hotels in the downtown area. One of my favorites being the, Hotel Monaco. Ive stayed here a few times and I just love it. This hotel has gorgeous views of the city and its simply breathtaking. But, this time around, I will be staying somewhere new and I'm prepared to give you all a full review during my stay! This trip is all about the ins-and-outs of this gorgeous city and experiencing so much more than before.

The only thing left to do now, is pack! Easier said, than done.
(Wish me luck. It's a high of 80 degrees during the day with a low of 55 degrees at night.)

It was love at first wear! Featuring:: Mara Hoffman

Hey guys!
Today, I'm sharing a beautiful Mara Hoffman dress, that I instantly fell in love with. It was love at first wear!

 I am a big fan of Mara Hoffman's bold prints and vibrant colors. How do I even begin to explain my obsession with the colors and patterns, here? Inspired by India, rays of life, and positive energy- I feel like I'm looking into a kaleidoscope on acid!
(Lets be clear, I'm not speaking from experience, at all!)  
The fit of this dress is SO perfect and it hugs the body in all of the right places. 
It's truly a great dress for any occasion this summer.
Shop the look locally at Lilac and Lilies.

Playsuits for summer...

Summer has always been my favorite season. My birthday is in July, I was born a water-sign(Cancer), and I can not stand the cold weather...that is why I love living here in south Florida. It's summer almost all year round! 

Playsuits, jumpers, rompers, or whatever you want to call them, are perfect for hot summer days! I especially love this printed romper from Lilac & Lilies. Paired perfectly with this look, are these white/metallic strappy, gladiator-like sandals. 

(White and metallic are super trendy this season!)

 DarlingJuliet (photographer), first brought me to this secret photo-spot a few years ago {See post here} and we never get tired of shooting here. 
Check-out her lovely work here,  DarlingJuliet.com... her talent is beyond words!


It may be titled "W Wednesdays",but the truth is, its a great video to watch to kick-off this Memorial Day weekend! Have a fun-exciting weekend, everyone!

Etiquette Boutique's Grand Opening

Tonight, I attended Etiquette Boutique's grand opening party for their second location in Fort Lauderdale. 
I had a blast shopping the store with Julia from DarlingJuliet.com and I fell in love with this floral dress. Snagged it just in time for the celebration- ITS SO ME! As you can see, I paired it with a button down shirt from my boyfriend's closet... I think it looks super cute!

Some of my favorite everyday-wear items.. served with a side of pineapple!

Casually wandering around Hollywood beach, Fl. dressed in a few of my favorite basics...  with, DarlingJuliet.com.

This moto jacket from furormoda.com is hard to keep on the hanger.
Growing up, my dad always wore combat boots and a leather jacket... Seriously, almost everyday. He didn't have just ONE leather jacket, there were many. 
Some of them even had... Tassels!
His effortlessly cool roadie-lifestyle influenced the attitude in my style... and possibly the lack of color in my wardrobe.

Fun in Florals!

Exploring Hollywood beach, Fl.

Fashion is a state of mind. A spirit, an extension of one's self. Fashion talks, it can be an understated whisper, a high-energy scream or an all knowing wink and a smile. Most of all fashion is about being comfortable with yourself, translating self-esteem into a personal style.

What I wore for the first day of spring!

It was the perfect day to embark on a photo adventure with my dear friend, Darling Juliet. Her photography skills never cease to amaze me. I have her to thank for these lovely shots, today! 

With the end of winter and the beginning of spring, we are reminded that it is never too late to start over or to start something new. So, I ask... what truly makes you happy? Yes, you! For me, its simple. When I feel that I am totally immeresed with creativity and my ideas are becoming reality, that is when I am at my happiest. 
You already know that I love being in front of the camera, but I also love being behind the camera just as much, if not more. Julia, allowed me some time behind her camera and she suddenly became my muse. I think I captured some beautiful images of her, you can see here... CLICK.

So, do what makes YOU happy and do it with gratitude!
