In Between

Zara dress and boots / SIX bag

Happy Wednesday!

We are in the "in between"  season, the one that you really have no idea what to wear and layer pieces in the morning only to slowly take them off during the day because the temperature changes every hour.

Little by little Fall items start to make an appearance and combining  light Summer clothes with booties  seemed just the perfect outfit to put together on Saturday for dinner and a walk in my favorite town of Ridgewood.

How awesome are palazzo pants?!?!

I have been living on these pair since I got them. They are as comfortable as a skirt and the striped print was the selling point for me.  I have so meany outfits planned with them, that I plan to wear them all thru Fall.

BTW isn't this Summer flying? I can't believe that August is almost over!

Hope you guys had a great Monday...

The Power Of The Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits... What can I say other that I am obsessed with the.

This one is old so old that the tag was gone, but thanks to my good memory (sometimes lol) I remembered where I got it yearssssss ago.  I still remember buying it for the beach, but to be honest I actually never wore it as a cover-up.  Last time I wore I was on a cruise heading to Puerto Rico and wore like three times on that vacation.

Jumpsuits are comfortable, until is time for you to go to the bathroom haha then it becomes a pain to take off and if you are like me that don't like public bathrooms only in emergencies, but the day you decide to step out wearing a jumpsuit then you pee like crazy! 

I own a couple of them and they have become a perfect transition piece into the cooler months for me.  Adding a sweater, denim jacket or a motto faux leather jacket depending on the occasion, jumpsuits are a piece that can be dress up or down just by adding and changing accessories.

Weekend Fun:: NY Renaissance Faire




Happy Monday!!

Two weeks ago we took a drive to the NY Renaissance Faire and oh my, this time it was quite the adventure.  I attended this a couple of years ago and since then it seems like they added a bit more things, it is just like a different world. 

There are different activities all around the mini town, food, music and the end of the show is a fight for a princess (what I think it is lol) on horses and a whole bunch of other stuff.  

They also sell a ton of stuff , my boyfriend bought a handmade leather belt for $30.

 I will never forget eating a huge turkey leg with my hands and just thinking about it now makes me hungry!!  We were also surprised at how we were able walk the town with beer in our hands, the only time I experience that was in Vegas haha

This fun adventure runs until the first weekend of October.  So if you are around the area and are looking for something fun to do head over to the faire and I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

Fruit Cobbler



Fruit Cobbler

I am always searching for easy dessert recipes and this one (HERE) I found in Pinterest  has become one of my favorites.  
It's easy and delicious! The name "Lazy Man Peach Cobbler" caught my attention instantly.  

When I went peach picking  two weeks ago, I had no idea what a fruit cobbler was but, ever since that day I have baked 4 cobblers and all I did with this one was switch the peaches for blueberries and he result was the same. 

Needles to say, I had cobbler a whole week for breakfast lol

Give it a try!

It is not a fun thing to wake up and hear all the bad stuff and hatred that's going on in the world.  I am a very positive person, but it's hard not to let fear get in my head sometimes.  With a big trip plan this year, I have to remember that life goes on.  That even though we suffer (we all do around the world) when an unfortunate event happens, we can't let hatred win.  

We need God, this world needs more prayer and love, because LOVE always wins.

I couldn't start this post with my usual "Happy Friday" it just doesn't feel right.  I am thankful that my two friends living in Barcelona are ok, but sad for all the others affected.

With that said I hope you all have a great weekend! and remember...

LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN

Weekend Fun:: Peach Picking at Orchs Orchards



Happy Monday friends!!!

Since I've been really busy enjoying my Summer I've decided to re-start sharing my series "Weekend Fun".  For a while I stopped, because I either didn't get good pictures or I just didn't do anything interesting but lately all that has changed and I've been doing so much good fun stuff that it would be a crime not to share lol

First up is peach picking

 A couple of weekends ago we took a ride out to Warwick NY and went peach picking at Orchs Orchards and let me tell you this place is amazing.  They have peaches, apples, vegetables, animals, a store, a nice garden... I mean they truly have everything!! Before going there I had no idea what a fruit cobbler was and since my visit I baked 4 peach cobblers lol

 In general, Warwick is a very nice town, there are so many good restaurants, the drive in movies and on Sundays they have a large farmers market located in the center of town.  
During Fall they have the annual Apple Fest, there is wine tasting, food anything apple.

As for my outfit I decided to wear something comfortable so I went with my denim skirt, a stripped t-shirt, metallic espadrilles and a denim jacket and a head scarf channeling my inner Lucy Ricardo haha

If you are in the area pay a visit to this beautiful town and I assure you, you will love it as much as I do.

Happy Friday Everyone!!

The weather has been very unpredictable the last couple of days, that I couldn't help but to take one of my favorite pair jeans out for a spin.  Actually today, I spent most of my day organizing my closets and oh man, I'm craving colder weather but no snow lol 

Ruffles are such a big trend right now and I love it!  I own a couple of ruffle tops and this one was one of the newest editions.  I've worn it to the office a couple of times and I love how well it goes with jeans.  I love pieces that can be worn at work and easily transition to weekend attire. The more wears I can get out of an item the better in my book.

I am having a busy weekend ahead with a friend's BBQ tomorrow and a nature walk at Liberty State Park on Sunday.  I am really looking forward to some good food, laughs and some sangria.

Fringe Details

Last Tuesday I went to my first Coldplay concert and no lie, it was the best concert I have been in a while.  The lights, the songs, Chris Martin (lol) were perfect.  

The concert was held at Metlife Stadium and thankfully we did not have any thunderstorms. it was extremely humid and hot outside so I decided to wear minimal clothes just to stay cool.  I got this Bebe skirt last Winter when the store by the mall had a closing sale.  I love that is high waisted and also love the fringe detail.  

Paired with a cropped top,  platform sandals and a embroidered bag it gave a  fun touch to an otherwise plain outfit.

Hello August!!!

Even though this year is half gone and I really LOVE Summer, I can't wait for the next couple of months to arrive.  I have a couple of big exciting trips coming, that I,  sometimes pinch myself because I can't still believe they will be happening. 

 I will enjoy the rest of this month with some concerts (Cold Play tonight), a free french class at Coucou, my friend's yearly BBQ and God knows what else my adventurous self will get me into.

But for now, Happy August!
