What does style mean to you?

The ultimate form of self-expression and exploration. I wouldn’t say I have a very defined style, rather it’s fun to play around with different aesthetics and ideas and I love looking back at photos and seeing how my sense of style and self changes over the years.

What’s on your coffee table?

While sometimes I can be a bit of a maximalist with my clothes, at home I like to keep it super simple - my favorite candle from Boy Smells and whatever book I’m currently reading

What’s hanging on your wall?

Lots of pieces that my mom made for my apartment!

What can’t you live without?

My cat Rita :)

Fast fashion - this year I am recommitting to shopping with intention

Favorite dish?

That’s a tough one… probably milanesas and mashed potatoes.

Favorite pastime?

Nail art. I got a gel kit for my birthday 3 years ago and I’ve been unstoppable ever since.

A black beaded mini dress that was once my grandma’s, passed down to my mom for her quinceanera, and given to me when I turned 18.

My skincare!

Beach 1000000%

What brings you joy?

Spending time in good company. 

What are you looking forward to?

A year full of travel. This year I’m prioritizing experiences and making memories. 

Ideal day in Miami?

Head down Little Buenos Aires, pick up facturas (Argentinian pastries) and coffee from Buenos Aires Bakery and enjoy them at the beach. Once I’m ready to go I love grabbing some tacos from Taquiza and then basking in the afternoon sun by the pool with friends. If the sun hasn’t totally zapped me, finish off the day at Lagniappe and seeing where the night takes me!
