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.

Prints and a little DIY necklace

City Park
At Prospect Park, NY with a patterned dress from H&M CONSCIOUS (on sale here) & self made tassel necklace

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.

My Best T-shirt

My best t-shirt
My best t-shirt (similar here)

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.

Travelling Solo

Travelling and taking selfies
Travelling and taking selfies

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.

A regained LBD

LBD and a Bucket Bg
A paneled LBD and a Bucket Bag

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.

Tourist-ing

Tourist-ing in my home town
Tourist-ing in my home town

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.
