Maria Tettamanti, the blogger behind The Wordy Girl and the Instagram account @MariaTettamanti, is known for her whimsical sense of style, her colorful photos and her quests for finding the perfect pieces. Whether snapping pics, popping in for a workout or snagging the latest trends, you’ll frequently find her in the Design District, as it’s “in her hood” as she says. We caught up with the Instagram darling to see exactly how she spends her time there on any given Monday.

Ahana Yoga in the Miami Design District

The Time: 9 am

The Place: Ahana Yoga

The Reason: Sweating Out the Weekend with Dawn Feinberg

“Dawn’s classes are the best — aside from the fact that the workout is extremely hard, I love Dawn’s chats, singing, kirtan and choice of music,” she says. “Anyone who has taken Dawn’s class will tell you: she’s special AF.

Celine nano bag

The Time: 12:30pm
