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!

Southern Bell

H&M t-shirt / Rainbow Shops skirt / Target sandals / Forever 21 hat and necklace

Practicing my southern bell style with this midi skirt I found at Rainbow shops two months ago. It resembles a skirt  I've been wanting from Zara, but I either never found my size at the store or didn't take the time to find it online. This one is just as pretty and I paid a fraction of the price.

I have to say this sandals are very comfortable, I walked a lot that day and I had no problems with any pain or blisters. I wore this outfit two weeks ago when I checked out the Michael Angelo exhibit at the Oculus in NYC and a long walk along the Brooklyn bridge.

You Can Ring My Bell

Francesca's blouse / Levi's shorts / Target sandals

So I might have a bit of an obsession with bell sleeves.  

These top has a 70's vibe that I love and it's one of the pieces that has been in heavy rotation this Summer.  I styled it for the office with a brown faux leather skirt ,wore it two times with a pencil denim skirt and it's not ready to be put away in the closet just yet.

I've been trying to take pictures in different places but I have a little funny story to tell with this location.  I was minding my own business, going back and forth to my tripod and all of sudden I missed my step landed on the bush and no lie, like 1000 mosquitoes flew out.  Mosquitoes love me, these ones loved my forehead haha

 Needless to say I had a big bump on my forehead that lasted like three days, it was so bad that I decided to cut long bangs just to cover it....

Anyways, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!

Meeting Cara Alwill Leyba

On Friday night I had the pleasure of meeting Cara. I found out about this event and didn't think about it twice.  I have heard amazing things about her books and meeting her in person was such a great experience.
The event was held at Macy's in Downtown Brooklyn. Her new book is called The Champagne Diet which is about celebrating health, mind and body.  At the event she gave us tips on how to make our home the perfect place and how to make it an enjoyable experience every time we are home.

These were a few of the tips I will practicing for sure:

*Write a celebration list at the end of the day with all the things you accomplished and read it sipping a bit of champagne.  Instead of concentrating on the things you didn't complete, celebrate what you actually accomplished.

*Drink water in a wine glass 

*Put candles around the house and also bringing them while traveling

*Buy a juicer

*Make your bed everyday

*Disconnect from your phone, don't bring it into bed

*Use your china instead of paper plates

*Buy quality instead of quantity

and one that I will definitely do...

*Rub Lavender oil on your wrists before going on a plane to help with anxiety.

We also received a free copy of her other book Girl Code. It was a nice little reward to take home a signed copy and a one one two minute conversation!

Never Too Old For A Tutu

H&M tank top and shoes / Zara skirt / Dor L Dor purse

Shop Similar

Zara has a way of winning my heart all the time!

This denim/tutu skirt is one of the craziest but coolest pieces I ever got from Zara and I love it!
 I made it a point to step out of my comfort zone with items I buy and I think with this skirt I accomplished that. A combination of cool and a bit rockerish (I don't know if that 's a word haha)
I wanted to make the skirt stand out, so I kept everything else simple. I have worn it two times after that and it has definitely been a conversation starter LOL

The One Shoulder Secret

Forever 21 dress and slides / H&M skirt / Etsy Bag via Sheer-wood Vintage

Shop Similar

When you are a clothes hoarder and don't throw away or sell anything in your closet, you seem to find new trends that were old trends still hanging in there lol

This top here is actually a dress! I wore this dress like 7 years ago and was so thankful I never decided to get rid of it.  It fits a little big now, so I decided to tuck it in my skirt and wear it as a shirt. It has a vintage look to it (at this point I think it would be considered vintage) so styling it with my favorite vintage bag was a given.

Thinking Ahead

H&M t-shirt and slides / Uniqlo jeans / Etsy bag via Sherwood Vintage

Does anyone else feels like this year is flying by? Part of me wants September to arrive but the other part of me does not want to see snow and Winter.

I have a big trip coming up and planning outfits has been so much fun. I haven't gone shopping since I am in shopping freeze, but the items I bought prior were all for my vacation. This t-shirt is one of those pieces I will be wearing during my trip and if you read the t-shirt you can probably figure out where it is that I am headed!!

I've worn this shirt several times, but paired with this vintage bag, jeans and slides was the perfect assemble for a night of painting and drinks with friends.

on another note... How gorgeous is this 1960's wicker bag?!?!

Vintage Feels

Happy Monday!!!!

Here is an outfit I wore to the office last week  that was totally unplanned, but came together sort of vintage looking. I found this skirt at H&M right before vacation and wore it with a white cropped top and flats. 
I have another look planned with it and will be probably wearing it all thru Winter with thighs.  It is just too beautiful to store away for a whole season.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!
