I recently partnered with Southern Tide bringing my style and artistic vision to their audiences on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Anyone who knows my aesthetic or follows me on Instagram knows it parallels one similar to a preppy, beachy vibe like Southern Tide.
My free time is often spent on the beach, or exploring the areas of South Florida and beyond with close friends. I am not one to stay home on the weekends, and would rather fill my free time with my feet in the sand or in the water. Growing up going to the beaches along the Carolina Coast seems to have given me a stronger connection with the ocean and attraction to the sea. I guess this explains why I ended up living two blocks away from the water in the neighborhood of South Pointe in South Beach Miami.
The Southern Tide lifestyle parallels my life on a day-to-day basis and follows a classic, relaxed sense of style. I am a fan of bright colors and patterns, which is evident in the brand itself throughout the Mens' collections. Miami weather can seem to change at any moment, and I have learned quickly since moving here to be prepared for anything to happen at any given moment. With the constantly changing weather, I always have outfit options with me, from a bathing suit, to a long sleeve t-shirt that protects my skin from the Caribbean sun, to a hoodie to throw on when the cool sea breeze moves in after sunset. I have been wearing Southern Tide for years now and this was the perfect opportunity to collaborate with the brand, and bring the Southern comfort vibe to South Beach.
Stay tuned for more looks from my collaboration with Southern Tide and #followthetide.
