“I love the tuna crispy rice, crispy Brussels sprouts, house salad, wagyu short ribs, and tres leches at Makoto,” says Lindo.

Since moving to Miami 12 years ago, Colombia-born Carolina Lindo has established herself as a fixture on the local fashion scene, with a successful blog-turned–social media mini-empire that includes her own accessories and sunglass line, Past Midnight, and a creative studio, Storytellers. “I didn’t start with the goal of becoming a content creator, as it wasn’t as defined back then,” Lindo says of her trajectory. “But over the last eight years, it’s slowly evolved into a career that I love.” Lindo often finds herself at Bal Harbour Shops, whether she’s collaborating with luxury designers including Ferragamo, Isabel Marant, or Fendi, or simply looking for inspiration. “I gravitate toward a minimal, elegant, classic aesthetic,” Lindo says of her fashion sense. “I mainly wear neutrals, maybe paired with bold accessories for a pop of color.” Neutral, perhaps, but certainly never boring. Here, a few of the items currently on her radar.

What are some of the pieces you are most drawn to these days?
I always try to go for pieces that are timeless and that I can wear in a lot of different ways, especially if I’m investing in luxury items. I want to make sure it is a piece that will be a wardrobe staple.

How does Miami inspire your style?
Miami loves to dress up. At any time of day or night, people wear their best outfits, and it inspires me to do so, too.

Do you have a uniform or a signature look?
I would say that my uniform is a good pair of black trousers, a white tank top, oversized blazer, and sunglasses. I love Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, and Chanel.

What are you coveting for spring?
I’m looking for pieces with lighter fabrics, such as white maxi dresses in sheer fabrics. And I’m loving the sporty-chic trend—we saw a lot of this on the Spring runways of Miu Miu and Gucci.

What is your go-to outfit for an evening out on the town?
A black maxi dress from a brand like Valentino, and gold statement jewelry.

What is your favorite Bal Harbour restaurant?
I usually go to Makoto. I love the tuna crispy rice, crispy Brussels sprouts, house salad, wagyu short ribs, and tres leches.

What’s your go-to daytime look?
A pair of white Isabel Marant trousers, a black Wolford tank top, and my favorite Saint Laurent Cassandre belt.

Favorite beach accessories?
My Saint Laurent tote and sunglasses with yellow lenses.

Which jewelry brands are you most loyal to?
I love fine jewelry from brands like David Yurman and Cartier. I love this Spring’s trend of mixing metals.

How about entertaining items or home décor?
There is nothing like a good coffee table book from Assouline, and chic decorative crystal objects from Lalique.
