Stop and Smell the Roses

One of my absolute favorite past times is wandering, aimlessly, strategically, locally or internationally.  There’s just so much to see and learn when you take a step back, stop and smell the roses.  My boyfriend Daniel and I have been doing a whole lot of wandering lately. While I snap away at pretty much anything in sight using my new camera (a Christmas gift from Daniel), Daniel is busy finding landmarks and hacking portals via Ingress– “an augmented reality massive multiplayer online role playing GPS-dependent game created by Niantic Labs, a startup within Google”.  Sounds like a major geek fest, but its actually a pretty cool game, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Last weekend we took the Metro Mover to its final destination at the School Board Station and wandered off into Wynwood to check out all the incredible murals left behind by artists from all around the world during this year’s Art Basel.  We came across this lovely rosette mural and I couldn’t help but use it as the backdrop for my OOTD.  Not only does it fit my all around feminine and colorful style, but how great did it match my look that day?!

If you have some leisure time go out and get lost in your own city.  Go for a long walk or bike ride, you’ll be amazed at how many new things you’ll discover when you’re not trapped inside a car.

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all an adventurous and inspirational Sunday Funday!

Fruit Stripe Fun

No animal has a more distinctive coat than the zebra. Each zebra’s stripes are as unique as fingerprints—no two are exactly alike.  Although scientists are not exactly sure why zebras have stripes, most theories revolve around their use as camouflage.  In fashion however, zebra stripes are used almost completely for the opposite purpose.  For example, today’s zebra inspired outfit screams “LOOK AT ME, HERE I AM” with this beautiful salmon colored, zebra printed blouse form ZARA available here.  I paired this gorgeous blouse with a blue pencil skirt (to blend with the zebras’ colored stripes), my Ivanka Trump rose gold, metallic pumps and all rose gold accessories.  What do you think?
