The Everyday Summer Romper

Hey guys! I hope you've all been enjoying your Summer. I've been traveling for work, I've been super busy. I recently purchased this romper from JustFab and I may have been wearing it every other day. I wake up on a Saturday, having to step out, go shopping, brunch, life in general, and I just throw it on. I can honestly live in this, I don't care! It's just so comfortable! It's linen, so it's perfect for summer. It's loose fitting, the stripes are on trend and it's not super short so I don't have to worry about showing more than I want. This romper has become my Summer Staple, it's just that perfect! I'm obsessed!
The jewelry has also become part of my signature look. This is made by a local artist, J for JMR. The delicate pieces are handmade and perfect for any occasion. Love everything from her line!

Hola! Espero que la estén pasando bien este verano. He estado viajando mucho por trabajo por ende super ocupada. Recientemente, compré este jumper por JustFab y puede que me lo haya puesto mil veces ya. Me levanto un Sábado y tengo que salir, ir de compras, brunch o vivir mi vida en general y me lo pongo. Honestamente, me lo pondría todos los días, no me importa! Es extremadamente cómodo! Es de lino, así que está perfecto para el verano. Queda sueltecito, las rayas están de moda y no queda muy corto, así que no me preocupo de enseñar demasiado. Este jumper se ha convertido en mi pieza de verano! Estoy obsesionada!

La joyería que llevo puesta también se ha convertido en parte de mi atuendo diario. Es de una artista local, J for JMR. Me encantan sus piezas delicadas. Perfectas para cualquier ocasión.

A Walk in the Courtyard

Summertime is just such a great time to discover new things in your city! Last month, I went to Second Thursdays at the McNay Museum in San Antonio. This place is absolutely beautiful. They hold such a fantastic art collection, but what really draws me in are the events they hold. Second Thursdays is great because it's FREE! They have food trucks, music, and performances. You can walk through the museum or hang out in the courtyard. This courtyard is breathtaking! I had a huge thing for courtyards back in Puerto Rico. many homes had them, especially in Old San Juan, so this is definitely reminiscent of back home. I wore the breeziest romper I bought at a local boutique, Voge, and trust me when I say, you need breezy clothing in this Texas heat!

El verano es un excelente momento para descubrir cosas nuevas en tu ciudad! El mes pasado, atendí al evento del Segundo Jueves en el Museo McNay en San Antonio. Este lugar es precioso! Tienen una colección de arte increíble, pero lo que más me gusta es que tienen actividades divertidas. El Segundo Jueves es chévere porque es GRÁTIS! Tienen comida, música y shows. Puedes andar por el museo o caminar por el jardín interior. Este jardín es un sueño! Yo tenía una obsesión por jardines interiores desde que vivía en Puerto Rico, ya que muchas casas lo tenían, especialmente en el Viejo San Juan. Así que este definitivamente me trae muchos lindos recuerdos. Llevaba puesto un romper de una boutique local, Voge. Créeme este look es perfecto para el calor de Texas en el verano!

Aquis Hair Towel Review

Hi everybody! It feels like forever since my last post! I've been on the road again for work, but I couldn't forget to bring my new Aquis Hair Towel with me while traveling. I've been using this towel as opposed to a regular towel or my curly hair hack, a cotton t-shirt. This towel is created specifically for hair drying, although they also carry body towels. I am absolutely stunned with the quick dry time for my hair and the towel itself! check out my review in the video above and see what I'm talking about!
