Hola! I spent the last ten days surfing with my family in Mexico, in a beautiful area called Punta Mita. The town itself is pretty small, with an oceanfront main drag that includes a handful of restaurants and a tiny harbor that is home to about 20 ponga boats. There are several surf spots nearby, including pumping reef breaks and peeling point breaks. Because the surf was so plentiful, and September is off-season, we never ran into any crowds! The fish tacos were AMAZING, and the weather was gorgeous the entire trip, with clear skies and 90 degree turquoise waters. Viva México!

Every now and then, you can (gasp) actually get really inspired by social media. Case in point: wise words from the queen of inspiration herself…Oprah. Ms O Tweeted the other day, “I’d rather have a life of ‘OH WELLS’ than a life of ‘WHAT IFS.”

Well, me too Oprah. Preach it. (more…)

Wild Pairs

One of my wardrobe staples is a simple pair of denim cutoffs and a basic tee. I could put it on daily. But there are days where I crave that same staple feeling but with a little dash of crazy and daring. My new favorite wild combo consists of these tribal printed shorts and embellished crop top. I love mixing prints. Especially contrasting jungle ones! This combo is still a comfy pair of shorts and a perfect fit tee, but with a more adventurous attitude. I’ve been adding a denim jacket around my waist, carrying this fun neoprene clutch, and wearing some boots to complete this expressive look. Whether I’m climbing through a jungle in tropical paradise or tackling a day at work, this wild outfit will give you the necessary power to go at everything with a bang! Stay comfortable but don’t be afraid to get crazy with your basics and mix some prints!
