Leilani Sanchez found that the “intimate, special feeling” of off-the-grid Brooklyn boutiques was what was missing from Miami’s shopping scene. “All we saw down here were stark, white spaces and super high-end stuff.” Her new project MIMO Market (Miami Inspires Modern Originality) caters to a local crowd in the burgeoning Wynwood neighborhood – where art galleries and coffee shops sit comfortably away from the craziness of South Beach. Sanchez says, “We want people to feel like they can pick up a great dress for $50, in a laidback setting… that’s an experience we were missing down here.”

Even though I live in sunny Florida I still love to layer (the AC can
be brutal!) No matter where you live, lightweight layers are essential to staying warm and stylish this fall.

A white shoe is very Miami. There’s just a hint of silver sparkle on the top of this shoe that I love. It’s a cool update to a classic design.

Style Tip

I love menswear–inspired watches and big faces,
and this watch hits those notes. But they added a little
bit of a feminine touch with the light band.


Ankle booties are a big trend for fall and I love how the
cognac color of these goes with everything in your closet
– it’s a timeless shape and a timeless color.

LOOKBOOK

  • What I love about shorter boots is they look great with a dress or skinny jeans... whatever you want to rock. These are going to be getting a lot of wear this fall. With or without socks.

Sperry Top-Sider Women's Ambrose Bootie

Style Tip

The peasant top is my ode to bohemian style. I paired it
with the ankle booties again because I feel like this is a
transitional look that works for the end of summer into fall.

STYLE TIP

I love these kelly green slip-ons. The texture is beautiful. These
are the kind of shoes that really are the star of the outfit. With
that pop of green on your feet, everyone is going to see
that first.

I come from a corporate background and wore heels every day. Now that I own my own business, I’m fully enjoying the opportunity to wear sneakers.
