I have a few pics I haven’t posted so I decided to clean the roll and start posting. I wore this outfit for a cocktail party at Soho Beach House in Miami Beach. This blue slip dress from Acacia Swimwear has been a life saver, as it can be worn pretty much for any occasion. I have dressed it up with pearls and pumps (like on this post), dressed down with flats or sandals or simply worn as a beach coverup.
This is another of the outfits that I wore around New York City. Once again I was meeting friends for a picnic at the park, but this time at Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
I had bought this printed dress from H&M CONSCIOUS line, thinking that I truly don’t own dresses with so busy prints, but it was on sale so why not. I paired it with comfortable black slip-ons for walking and I did a little DIY conversion to my Gorjana lariat necklace, that I have been wearing so much lately (see here), by tying to the end a purple tassel.
I am venturing into home decor with some of my illustrations and decided to start selling throw pillows, they are available on Society6 and they come in indoor and outdoor fabrics and in different sizes.
Head to my Society6 page and receive FREE Worldwide shipping + $5 Off laptop sleeves (link here). Valid until Aug 9th.
I wore this outfit during a really hot day in New York city, as I went on a stroll thru Central Park to meet friends. One of the things I always pack when I travel are comfy t-shirts, they are the easiest thing to wear and you can layer them, dress them up or down or even wear them to sleep. As many, I have embarked on the search for the best t-shirt and I have some basic ones that I love, but this graphic tee is soft and expresses precisely what it is, so it does the job for now.
I have always liked travelling, the idea of taking a plane and waking up in another city excites me. Since becoming single I have always dreaded the idea of travelling by myself. But don’t get me wrong I love my time alone it gives me time to think, but for me usually travel included a companion.
Living the fear behind I booked a plane ticket to NYC. I know this city well, so it felt like home. Walking up and down Madison Ave, I did a little shopping, I reconnected with a few friends that I haven’t seen in a while, I had a nice meal at a trendy restaurant by myself and went to the MET to see a fashion exhibit.
With all and all I got over the fear of travelling alone and I have already booked my next flight.
While cleaning out my closet over the weekend I noticed that I have a bunch of little black dresses, many that I don’t wear anymore, like this paneled one from BCBGMAXAZRIA. I had forgotten I had this dress, it was one of my favorite ones when I got it a few years ago. But re-descovering that old dress in the darkest corner of the closet made me happy and I’m giving it another spin in life.

Happy 4th of July weekend! Hope all you have a great time celebrating and showing off your patriotic pride, wearing red white and blue. See below some of my picks on what to wear.
Sometimes I feel that I don’t go back home enough. I love my hometown but most of my family lives in Miami, so I only go back very little. On my recent visit to Santo Domingo I was feeling a little nostalgic. I visited the Zona Colonial, this is the area where I went to fine art school and where I spent most of my time doing studies while in architecture school. This part of the city holds a special place in my heart, walking thru the narrow cobblestone roads, surrounded by the coral stone and brick old buildings with beautiful rustic doors, made me remember of a time where things where more simple.
For this outing I was wearing a comfy outfit perfect for the tropical climate, khaki short shorts, an embossed fabric crop top and slip-ons to walk around.
