Exploring Boston. Bunker Hill

9/15/2017

I saw that you were perfect...so I loved you. Then I saw that you were not perfect and I loved you even more" 💞

Like I mentioned, the reason why we were in Boston was that Gabe's high school bff, Vice, was getting married (and well, he lives there).  Vice and his wife has the cutest baby girl, and we really wanted to spend time with them since we don't see them very often.

Our day started in Bunker Hill where we walked, had a late lunch, and walked some more! I was wearing my favorite white ripped jeans with the "not -so- perfect"white tee and a camo jacket. As you can see, I wore these items a lot but pairing them with different pieces to really take advantage of my small luggage in Boston.

I'm almost done with the Boston pics, I really loved the city. Can't wait to go back.

Como les mencioné, la razón por la que estábamos en Boston fue por la boda del mejor amigo de colegio de Gabe. El vive allá con su ahora esposa y la hijita (que no tienen idea lo linda que es), y de verdad queríamos pasar la mayor cantidad de tiempo posible con ellos ya que no los vemos seguido.

Esta vez estuvimos conociéndola zona de Bunker Hill donde caminamos hasta más no poder con un descanso para almorzar. 

Sobre mi look: estuve rehusando mucho las piezas que llevé a Boston para realmente sacarle provecho a todo.

Todavía tengo algunas fotitos de este viaje. Pero ya quiero que vean las de New Orleans, Miramar Beach y Orlando. ¡BESOS!


The Sheer Embroidered Floral Top

9/13/2017


I kept comparing Boston's weather the week  I visited to Caracas'💓 not too warm... but out of nowhere, it was a whole different story (it was so HOT!).

When packing, I always lay down outfits and plan what I'm going to wear (plus I always bring extra options just in case)...this was a total improvised one but it was too hot for anything else .

This embroidered sheer top is definitely a statement piece. I can't wait to wear them over a swimsuit, with some autumn layers, with a denim short underneath, or even a slip dress.

How would you wear it?

Llevaba días diciendo que el clima de Boston estaba más que perfecto (como el de Caracas🙏🏼😍)...pero uno de los días, el calor de los últimos días de verano salió a relucir.

Cuando hago maleta, me gusta poner todo en el piso y planear lo mejor que pueda  y sacarle provecho a todo lo que llevo. Estas piezas no las iba a usar necesariamente juntas, pero funcionó perfecto para un calor muy estilo Miami.

Esta camisa larga transparente es definitivamente una de esas piezas WOW pero eso no significa que no puedas sacarle provecho. Me la imagino sobre trajes de baño, con más capas en otoño, y más elegante con un vestidito negro de tiritas.

¿Cómo lo usarías tu?

Exploring Boston. Acorn Street

9/11/2017

Pretending I'm super cool in Acorn Street 🤣...but the truth is, it was a bad idea to be wearing these boots in a cobblestoned street! According to Wiki, " Acorn Street in Beacon Hill is often mentioned as the "most frequently photographed street in the United States." It is a narrow lane paved with cobblestones that was home to coachmen employed by families in Mt. Vernon and Chestnut Street mansions"

 Also, I totally stole this hoodie from Mr. Gabe. He rocks as a shirt, the fit for me is more like a hoodie dress- which I LOVED, especially when paired with these over-the-knee boots.

At the end of this post, you can find some similar versions to the items I'm wearing!


Dándome de la mas cool en una de las calles de piedritas más antigua de Boston llamada Acorn Street (la cual también, según Wiki, es una de las calles más fotografiadas de Estados Unidos) - pero si les soy sincera, fue una mala idea andar caminando por ahí con estas botas.

El hoodie/suéter es de Mr. Gabe. Obviamente a el le queda genial como camisa- a mi me quedaba larga como un vestidito (cosa que me encantó). Me parece que este estilo de suéter ancho se ve genial con botas a la rodilla para esos días de otoño que están a la vuelta de la esquina.

¡Al final del post les dejo enlaces a piezas similares a lo que llevo!


¡BESOS!



Exploring Boston. Aquarium + North End

9/09/2017


This day, I put my sneakers and we walked, and walked, and walked around Boston!

Confession, the last time I visited it was right after a summer camp ( I was almost 13) and I hated it! Boy, Little-Teenage-Nany was WRONG...this city is BEAUTIFUL 💓💓 

We headed to a few places you guys recommended: Chloe (vegan place), the Aquarium, Acorn Street, and we had pastries in Vittoria in North End! While we walked, the eclipse was happening and we had no glasses...but a sweet older man and his family let us use theirs; and it was MAGIC 🌞🌚 were you able to see it?💛

Como dice mi mami, hoy caminamos mas que cochino chiquito 🐖🐖🤣🤣 fuimos a muchos de los lugares que me recomendaron en la foto anterior (¡mil gracias!!) y de verdad que estoy enamorada de esta ciudad😍😍

Les confieso que la primera (y única vez) que fui, fue después de un campamento a unas 3 horas de Boston cuando tenía 13 años- y no me gustó para nada. Digamos que la Nany de 13 años no tenía idea lo que estaba hablando.

Mientras caminábamos, todo el mundo estaba afuera por el eclipse ...y nosotros los únicos sin lentes🙄🙄 (por despistados jajaja) pero un señor y su familia nos prestaron los de ellos...y WOW que mágico! ¿Lo pudieron ver?🌑🌞🌙


Ready for Fall…with DENIZEN® from Levi’s® Jeans

9/08/2017

This post was sponsored by DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans. All opinions are my own, outfits were 100% curated by me.



Jeans are everyone’s wardrobe staple. We wear them to run errands; we dress them up for dates; and when they are as comfortable as a pair of DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans, you are going to want to wear them everywhere…with everything.

Reason why, I want to show you that perfect pair to add to your denim collection and three easy foolproof ways you can style them this fall.

Today I’m wearing the DENIZEN® Modern Slim Jeans. They have a mid-rise that I find very comfortable for every day and works with many top styles. They have a slim leg opening and an ultra-soft super-stretchy premium denim that hugs your curves and keeps its shape all day. I also love that they come in short and long-lengths to flatter women of various body types (my shorty self is so excited that DENIZEN® jeans offers short lengths!). And I haven’t mentioned it BUT they are sold at Target for under $30!



Let’s do this:


1. DENIZEN + Dressy Top + Heels






If you are like me and live in a city where fall just seems to take FOREVER, you can start playing with textures, colors, and incorporating fall trends into transitional outfits. Here I paired the Modern Slim jeans with a tee that looks like it has a corset (big trend for fall), and the embroidered detail is still going strong this season. This look works for a meeting, a movie night, or happy hour with your girls.


2. DENIZEN + CHUNKY SWEATER + BOOTS





This is definitely my go-to fall outfit. It’s so easy but looks cute and put-together.  Here I cuffed the Modern Slim Jeans to show of the nude booties and I love that they look like a total different pair.  Like I said, don’t be afraid to play with different textures, like this bag that has a fluffy feel to it…very Autumn! This is perfect for pumpkin picking, a stroll down the park, running errands, or a coffee break with friends.



3. DENIZEN + OVER THE KNEE BOOTS + LAYERS







If, on the other hand, where you live is starting to get real cold real fast, this is my go to when I have to play with layers to stay a little extra warm. I added knee high boots over the jeans – (don’t they look super classy?), a striped sweater and a leather jacket.  Depending on the weather you can add a little hat…or an umbrella if it starts pouring!

Fragrance Beauty Ritual

9/07/2017

Is it me or is getting ready just as fun as the special occasion? 💓 From doing my makeup & hair, to trying a few different outfits, even spritzing my favorite fragrance. To me, a fragrance is so much more than a scent you wear…it can become your beauty signature, it says as much of your personality as the outfit you are wearing! 

So what if you could personalize it? I'm loving the #FlowerbombTwists because you can use them as a base in pulse points (think wrists, neck, and décolleté) to complement and enhance the #Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum..such a timeless beauty ritual.

While in Boston, I feel in love with this corner of our Airbnb and I had to take pictures. I took this dress for the wedding, but ended up wearing my back-up dress. Yes, I definitely change many times and take several options just in case I'm not feeling it. This dress is from Fame & Partners and it is such a dream. I love that site because you can customize the dress (height, the train, or other details). It's my go-to for wedding/prom/special occasion dressing..check it out!

Hope you like the pics!

Visiting LAWN ON D... Nany in Boston

9/05/2017


During the Boston visit for a wedding, our first stop was the Lawn on D. It is a super cool park with food trucks, swings, live size jengo, and more. Apparently this is the cliche pic at Lawn on D...but I had to take it. I had to stalk groups of girls while they each took 100 photos (and boomerangs of course💁🏻)...and then fight for my spot when a swing was finally available! I still have many pics from Boston to share, stay tuned💓💓

After that we walked to a Mexican restaurant ( I need to start writing down names) with a couple of friends. My look- well, it is my rocker uniform, and super comfortable to explore a new city!

Have an amazing day!

Aparentemente esta es la foto cliche en un parque en Boston que se llama Lawn on D . Este parque tiene food trucks, bebidas, juegos (que si Jenga gigante, bolas criollas, etc), y estos columpios que no pasaban ni un segundo desocupados (es que entre IG, Stories, Snap, y Boomerangs una fotico se convierte en una sesión). ¡  Todavía tengo fotos por compartir de Boston, poco a poco iré actualizando el blog!

Después fuimos caminando a un restaurante mexicano en el arena (DIVINO). Pero soy un desastre y nunca me acuerdo de los nombres. Mi look es mi uniforme cuando me siento edgy- cómodo y cool para explorar una ciudad.

¡FELIZ DIA!

Almost-FALL wedding in mustard and burgundy

9/03/2017
We were in BOSTON because Gabe's highschool bff just got MARRIED  
I love black-tie weddings, and the dress code cocktail for summer weddings can be a little tricky...how dressy should I go? I got this high-low mustard dress at Forever 21 and it was a life saver! 💛💛 when I was at the wedding, my mom kept asking for pictures to see what I was wearing. When I sent her a photo, the first thing she told me was "those shoes are so OLD" 🤣 she is right though, the first time they were featured on the blog was in 2011 and they keep making their yearly appearance. Let's see who remembers them!🤣🤣

Estamos en BOSTON...bueno la boda (del mejor amigo de Gabe) fue en un pueblito a 40 min llamado Ipswich .
Yo amo las bodas asi elegantes ELEGANTES; y admito que cuando ponen vestimenta cocktail o semi-formal, me pongo a dudar .. ¿será que estoy muy casual? ¿o muy elegante?. Este vestido color mostaza de un hombro me pareció perfecto para la ocasión ; aunque era una boda en pleno verano, opté por tonos más otoñales. Apenas llegué a la boda mi mama no dejaba de pedirme fotos de que tenía puesto; cuando le mandé adivinen que me dijo!? " ESOS ZAPATOS SON VIEJISIMOS" jaja y tiene razón 🤣🤣Salieron en el blog por primera vez en el 2011, y siguen apareciendo año tras año! ¿Quién se acuerda?
