What motivated you to start your blog?
I began Living In Color Print about 2 years ago after working backstage during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week one season. I was just interning at a PR company at the time, but was so inspired by the influx of the ‘fashion blogger’ on the digital space. Shortly thereafter I launched LICP; best decision ever! The site, which is now my full-time career, has brought me so much joy and so many incredible opportunities that I feel blessed to have experienced.
How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
Miami, and South Florida in general, is such a warm (practically tropical) region which encourages me to dress in brightly clad attire year round! Which I, of course, love.
Who are your style icons?
Blake Lively and Olivia Palermo are my two modern day icons – both women have a fun/vibrant style where they’re not afraid to be a little daring and try new things, yet they also stick with classic silhouettes and impeccable tailoring (the true key to any great look).
Name one piece every woman should have in her closet and why?
A classic cut Black Boyfriend Blazer, hands down. I’ve gotten SO much use out of mine over the years. Whether it’s dressing appropriately for the workplace, happy hour with the girls, date night or even out on the torn over a sassy little mini dress – it’s such a versatile piece.
What items do you always carry in your handbag?
Soft Lips chapstick, lipstick (always a different shade to mix it up), headphones, a bandaid, blonde bobbie pens, and of course…my iPhone – oh what would we do without technology these days?!
What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
I’m actually not a huge beauty expect (certainly don’t claim to be!) so I rely a lot on makeup artists and YouTuber’s to teach me the latest and greatest tips and tricks. I think the best thing I ever learned was a few year’s back from an eye brow expert (cannot remember her name for the life of me) who taunt me the importance of a well shaped/groomed brow. Life changing I tell you.
Tell us… what is something not many people know about you?
I clap my hands like a penguin when I get reallyyyy excited.
What are your favorite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
Sticking to my blog’s mantra ‘Live Colorfully’, mixing and matching prints, patterns, and colors it was I do! Fashion is about having fun and experimenting, so why not! I love polka dots + stripes, florals + stripes, neon on neon,etc. Although lately, I’ve really been loving mixing textures together into one ensemble: chiffon, leather, faux fur, beading – you name it.
When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
Definitely fresh flowers (I’ve always been a sucker for flowers), and good quality time with the girls (brunch or happy hour does it every time for me).
How do you start your day? Do you have a morning routine?
Working from home sometimes it’s a bit tough for me to have a ‘normal’ routine. There are days where I wake up and decide to work from my bed the entire day, or mornings where I have to be at a client meeting or on a call. Regardless of what I have planned, I 100% always have to have breakfast each morning – I swear, I wake up hungry everyday!
