Cinco De Mayo is one of those holidays that reminds me that summer is around the corner! Thus I love taking the day to have some #happyhour fun and kick-off the coming season. I did just that earlier this week in the city at Mosto SF. An intimate Tequila Bar, I was joined at Mosto SF by two darling Latina bloggers, Carlina of Allergic To Vanilla and Daisy of Daisy Fashion Garden. I had a blast introducing them to Mosto's craft cocktail program. We tasted the La Palmoa made with Milagro Blanco Tequila, the I-Grade made with Monte Lobos Mezcal and the Evil Twin made with  Monte Lobos Mezcal/Ancho Reyes Liqueur. Tequila and Mezcal are not my spirits of choice (as you may know I am a Whisky gal see HERE), yet using natural Agave, fresh juice and great spirits, like Milagro Blanco Tequila, Monte Lobos Mezcal and Ancho Reyes Liqueur are game changers! I think we were all especially surprised how much we loved the Monte Lobos Mezcal libations. Both were smooth and sweet without loosing the Mezcal's signature oaky flavor. Stay tuned to a full recipe feature on these three fun summer ready cocktails!!! Of course we had to also sample its delish Mexican-Style street food menu. Must-try bites are the veggie tacos made with nopales and the "hamburgesa" with Oaxacan queso. Salud and Besos!

2016 Mother's Day Gift Guide

I love spring time celebrations. With joyous tones and outside settings, occasions like this coming Mother's day really give me the easy-breezy seasonal feels. This year mommies-to-be are on my mind. Many sweet gals I know just started, or will soon be starting, a family unit of their own, so I partnered up with Santana Row to give you some fun and chic gift ideas for the brand new mom. 

Consider buying that new mom, some wardrobe staples that will be easy to throw on for those out-of-the-house errands. Comfortable and cute, an oversized denim jacket and a pair of designer sneakers are not just ideal for the mom-on-the-go but are also major en-trend pieces for this spring. If you are looking for more of a statement gift, pick-up a stylish designer diaper bag (how adorable is this Daisy print one from Kate Spade?!) or a carry-all tote (for the more expert mom). 

Darling "survival-kit" type of pieces make perfect small but sweet presents. Drybar's Detox Kit, with dry shampoo & conditioner will do wonders when in a tight pinch during a busy mommy morning. Every new mom also needs a quirky coffee mug and to-do lists to get her through the day. Paper Source has so many fun options. The Mama Bear mug is definitely my favorite.

When in doubt, you can't go wrong with a Treat-Yo-Self gift. Sugarfina has a variety of yummy picks any mom, new or seasoned, would love. Also, if your that last minute kinda of shopper (guilty!) they have a pre-made "Sweetest Mom" Bento Box, ready for a quick pick up.

Nautical Vibes

I must tell you, I miss home. I've been on the road for over two weeks now and I simply long to sit on the bench in front of my favorite coffee shop. I miss my friends and family. I am also totally jonzing for my puppy cuddles. Yet l must also tell you, life on the road has been amazing. There are days when I wake up and just get lost in exploring or I have random conversations with strangers that make my heart full. As this series of trips comes to an end, I am so excited to share with you some of my highlights so stay tuned for a recap coming to the blog soon!

Before I embarked on my journey, I wore this look to some meetings and the super fun Kendra Scott preview at Santana Row. This whole look is pre-loved from head to toe. I have recently cut down on shopping significantly, purchasing only investment pieces while thrifting the trends. Honestly its been a great way to curate my outfits, mixing and matching pieces I am truly in love with. For this ensemble, my focus was this fun retro style nautical stripe sweater. Keeping everything in the neutral blue hues, this vintage denim jacket I found at Savers for a steal was the finishing touch to this layered look. A denim jacket is a must-shop wardrobe piece for this spring to summer season. When purchasing one, opt for a more stone-washed and a slightly over-sized fit. Fitted and cropped are a no-go! Madewell has some amazing choices. I will be sharing my picks in my Mother's Day Gift Guide next week.

Mod Mini

As you might know, I mentioned towards the end of last year that moving to LA was looking like a possibility. Thus ever since then I have been going back and forth scoping out neighborhoods and coming to terms with such a big change. During one of my first trips I decided to start by looking for a bit of familiar in an unknown city, so I ventured out to a local Crossroads Trading Co. and it was like finding a bit of home. 

Exploring the racks of pre-loved goodness, I ended up snagging this mini mod LBD for a steal. I wore it to a holiday party during the early winter season, pairing it with a moto jackets and black heels. Most recently I re-wore it to a magazine launch, switching it up some new spring style shoes. I am totally loving the come back the chunky heel has had over the last year. From sandals to mules, try a chunky heel option this spring for a sensible meets modern look.

Overall Basics

I was in a bit of a clothes pinch when I stumbled upon these amazing overalls. On the road when my trip got extend, I went to Target for some basic tees and walked out with these denim cuties. It was honestly love at first sight. Wanting overalls for sometime, I was so excited when they fit just right. I have been wearing them around town for meetings. I also jazzed them up for a Whole Foods Body event with this cute striped top. Overalls are a perfect style piece for this wardrobe transition time. I love that they little more fun than jeans and can be dressed up. Just be careful to not over do when mixing and matching color and prints. The whole look can start looking more childish than stylish.
