Animal Print for Fall

Leave a Comment
Woah. Long time no blog. It has been about six months since I last posted on here and I definitely miss it. I used to be so on top of uploading something at least once a month, and I have been lagging for sure. So here I am again! And I'll *hopefully* be getting back into the swing of things because I really do miss blogging. It's my little creative escape!

So now...onto the outfit! Something I can already tell I'll be wearing A LOT of this season is animal print. Snakeskin and leopard print, to be exact (all faux, of course). I love how edgy these prints are and something else I really like is that you can dress these pieces up like I did, or you can dress them down with some distressed denim and tennis shoes. Like I said, I was kind of going for less casual look so I chose to wear this square-neck snakeskin top with a cute burgundy colored patent leather skirt. Since the look already had a lot going on, I toned it down a bit with a cropped denim jacket. I think this is great to do when you feel like an outfit is "too much". Just throw on a denim jacket and you're good to go! And of course it couldn't be a complete fall look without my knee-high boots. They're my favorite thing ever. I think they're flattering and do a great job at making us shorter girls look a little taller.

A Day in Valle de Guadalupe

Leave a Comment
One of my favorite weekend plans is, hands down, spending the day in Valle de Guadalupe. It's not a long drive from San Diego and once you get there, you'll be amazed by the charm this secluded wine country in Ensenada has. For a day in the vineyards I opted for a gingham dress and knee-high boots. It gets kind of chilly at night so I layered up with a turtleneck underneath and threw on an oversized denim jacket later at night. 





Agua de Vid (Pancracia)

Agua de Vid is a cute boutique hotel I have been eyeing on Instagram for a while now. Its cool structure, laid-back vibe, and beautiful decor is why this new destination is a tourist hot spot. The hotel rooms are off to the side with an amazing view of the vineyards, while the 3-story restaurant, Pancracia, is located in the center. What I loved most about it was that each different area had the same amount of insane attention to detail to it. The photos below do not do it justice. If you're going to Valle anytime soon, you have got to check this place out. Plus, the food was amazing and the rooftop view was breathtaking.

Finca Altozano

It isn't a successful Valle trip without stopping at Finca Altozano. This time we didn't eat dinner here since we had previously gone to Pancracia, but we made sure to leave room for dessert! Located right next to Finca is a new delicious gelato shop called Ramonetti. It's small, but do not be fooled. Every flavor of gelato I tasted was out of this world. I ended up getting the choco-avellano (chocolate hazelnut) which was so creamy and delicious. It did not disappoint. After that, we walked on over to Lupe, aka torta heaven. We were still super stuffed so we took some tortas to-go for a late night snack. And if you thought I was done talking about food, think again. You can NEVER leave Finca Altozano without taking home one of their freshly baked sourdough baguettes. They are to die for! Now I'm done. Scroll down to see how aesthetically pleasing this place is too.

Wearable Spring Trends

Leave a Comment
Long time no blog! I've been so MIA lately, but I've been good about posting on Instagram. So if you're not following me there already, click here! Something I love about San Diego is that it doesn't get extremely cold. You could get away with wearing a light top and a jacket on chillier days, which I love because I am NOT a fan of bulky coats or lots of layers. And thankfully, the colder days are coming to an end because spring is only a few days away. So I've already started building my spring wardrobe and here are some of the things I have been loving: wrap shirts, denim culottes and mules. I will most likely be living in these pieces in the summer too because they're so comfortable and versatile. Today, I chose to style these three things together with some dainty gold necklaces (my all time favorite) and chunky hoops.

A Stroll Through North Park

Leave a Comment
Fall is finally in the air and I am loving every minute of it! I finally get to wear all of my cute jackets, turtlenecks and boots I've been putting on hold because of the unpredictable San Diego weather. For this comfy day look, I decided to wear a red striped turtle neck and a faux suede jacket to layer up. For bottoms I went with blue high-waisted jeans and for shoes I threw on the cutest blush booties. I got these velvet ankle boots online from Bershka on black Friday and they were only $20! Total steal! And of course, I can't forget my embroidered Zara bag that gets compliments every time I wear it. It's so cute and adds the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. This outfit was perfect for my afternoon walk in North Park. I checked out this cool mural located right outside Artelexia (the cutest Mexi shop ever) and then headed to Holy Matcha for a Coconut Match Latte that was de-lish!
