NYC Street Scenes

But First Coffee   Hi All!  Pardon the delay in my posting--I have been working on remodeling the website, so my content hasn't been as frequent, but believe me it will be worth the wait!  In the meantime, I thought I'd share some NYC street scenes from my weekend.  My parents are in town and it has presented us with some fun opportunities to eat in the new restaurants and explore new places. The weekend began with some lovely cocktails Saturday evening, then continued the next morning at brunch.  I found a Lower East Side gem via Instagram called Dudley's (see food pics above) and it was seriously delicious.  What you see in the full table picture (from right to left) is a hamburger with fries with an aioli dipping sauce (get extra fries!), avocado toast…

Miami Vacation

Miami Vaction

I'm back in NYC and besides the humidity: Miami and NYC Could not be more opposite cities. Miami struck me as a cross Between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. It has a city adjacent to a gorgeous beach - like LA, but it Also has every imaginable trendy and swanky hotel, to hang in your bathing suit all day, with Basically all your needs under one roof. All along South Beach hotels are vibrant with loud music, imbibing, and People that are just genuinely trying to have a good time! Ha! What I loved most about Miami were the beautiful colors: the ocean is crystal blue/teal and every evening the sky Becomes a gorgeous mix of blue, orange, pink, and yellow. It really is That picturesque sunset you see on the post cards. Luckily…

Hitting the Miami Streets // Salió a la calle de Miami

  I'm getting ready for a trip to Miami this weekend and I am very excited!  Since I'm from the West Coast, Miami isn't exactly in our backyard: Tahoe and Hawaii are more our speed.  So a visit to Manhattan's sixth borough is long overdue!  Plus, I can do a refresher course on my Spanish speaking skills. One of the best parts of travelling (at least as a style blogger) is preparing your outfits.  I have picked up a few new pieces and I am excited to mix and match looks and wear a bathing suit for the first time this season!  Every summer I get a couple of new suits and alternate them in with my old ones from the previous year.  Last year, I bought a blue Melissa Odabash suit and this year--I bought a somewhat similar…

Farmer’s Market Fresh (Part 2)

The farmer's market in Marin at the Marin Country Mart, was such a lovely place and set up!  It happens every Saturday and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to spend their Saturday outdoors with some food and music!  It had great produce, flowers, and made to order food.  First stop: flowers!  Since I'm clearly an experienced florist, I am picking the best of the bunch in this next photo ; ).  Besides the lovely blooms, the market had such vibrant fruits and fresh veggies that I couldn't resist taking several photos of them and noshing on some. An experienced florist making some serious decisions.  Obviously. "Sir, are these flowers fresh? I meannnn really fresh?!" -Me getting to the bottom of how fresh these flowers are.  (If that wasn't obvious.) Some…
